Paper Girls - Using holiday products on non-holiday projects

We've got a fun challenge at The Paper Girls Challenge Blog today for you…. Use your holiday supplies on non-holiday projects! It's really not too difficult to do once you force yourself to look at those holiday paper collections in a new way.

I own a bunch of MME's "Winter Wonderland" paper, stickers, embellies, you name it, so that's what I used for this challenge. The 'B' side of one of the papers has this beautiful polka dot print that just happens to perfectly match my daughter's dress and shoes in these photos. You'll see that I even cut out parts of Christmas phrases like "Happy" and "Joy" to add to the layout:

Now go give the challenge a try! You have until January 4th to link up your entry!

Use It Tuesday - Winter

The new Use It Tuesday challenge is Winter/Holiday. The very first Christmas collection I bought was Bo Bunny's 'Winter Wonderland'. I love the non-traditional colors of purple, turquoise and lime green! I used up all of the paper a long time ago, but I still have some bits and pieces left. So I put these 2 year old rub-ons to work on plain white cardstock to create a nice winter/Christmas card:

I love the simplicity of it! I should do this with all of my leftover rub-ons, what a great way to make one-layer cards!
