Papercrafting the Holidays: A Round-Up of Fun – Take II & Giveaway!
Papercrafting for the holidays – even more papercrafting product options!
OK, who’s excited about papercrafting for the holidays?
I am, I am!
I am so enjoying seeing all the new holiday collections and project ideas being shared!
Brandy (our newest creative team member) and I met at our local Starbuck’s just before I left and we shared our ideas for papercrafting the holidays – we think you’re going to really enjoy seeing what we have in store for you!
Now, we’d also love to hear from you –
what types of projects are you interested in creating for the holidays
and what would you like for us to share?
We’d love some input!
For those who might have missed our last post about December and Christmas holidays papercrafting options, we encourage you to take a moment and check out the collections and workshop offerings: Papercrafting the Holidays: A Round-Up of Fun
I just signed up for Ali Edwards’ 2015 December Daily™ workshop and I can’t wait to receive my stamps (included with the purchase of the workshop!) and to get started!
And if you’re joining in on December Daily™, please tell us – if we have enough interest, we might start a DD club here at PaperCrafter’s Corner!
How about you, are you participating in any holiday workshops,
perhaps taking a class or two at your local papercrafting store?
please share the details with us in the comments –
we love seeing what’s being offered around the U.S. and abroad!
Speaking of what’s being offered abroad, have any of you participated in Shimelle’s Journal Your Christmas class?
Shimelle lives in the UK (with her adorable boys – a hubby and little Wonder Boy!) and has offered this online class (complete with daily journaling prompts) for quite some time.
I’ve joined in for several years and really enjoy receiving her daily prompts. (BTW, once you sign up once, you’re in each year, no extra charge!)
I know we already mentioned her online class, but what we didn’t share are the fun new stamps she’s created for it!
This year Shimelle is offering a collection of Journal Your Christmas stamps to make your holiday documenting even more fun and inspiring!
Now there is one catch: these stamps were part of a pre-ordered kit Shimelle is packing up and shipping out now – once those shipments are out the door, she’ll make any extra stamp sets available for purchase.
Oh, but wait, there’s more!
Not only is Shimelle offering a fun new set of Journal Your Christmas (JYC) stamps, she recently announced her newest line with American Crafts: Christmas Magic!
Fun line, right?
Even if you don’t journal every day of the season, Shimelle’s daily JYC prompts are a great way to be mindful of what the holidays are all about, and what they mean to you, and to write about anything associated with this time of year (no rules, remember?!).
If you’ve participated in Journal Your Christmas,
please share your thoughts with us in the comments;
