Here is a little something to get you in the creative spirit! Doesn't this inspiration photo just make you smile? There is so much to take away from this and apply to your paper crafting! The colors, the patterns, the stars, the crepe paper, the bits of gold, the washi, and even the ribbons. Combine your favorites or just pick one thing to highlight. You can choose to make your project with a holiday theme or focus on the everyday. Make something merry and bright as we move towards the end of 2016!


 -Participating bloggers can add their link to the appropriate list here anytime between 10am ET and 11:30pm ET on December 26th within the InLinkz list below. The title of your post should be "Papertrey December Blog Hop Challenge".

Crafting with Katherine

Crafting with Katherine created a fabulous birthday card using the bright colors found in the inspiration photo. The stars are also a nice tie-in and provide a complimentary balance to large script sentiment.


Anna K

Anna Kossakovskaya focused on the bright yellow used in the inspiration piece, with lots of accent colors she picked up from there as well. The pops of bright pink and turquoise make this card a fun and modern twist on a traditional holiday card.


Donna Phelan

Donna Phelan made these festive holiday tags based on the wire brush trees that appear in the inspiration photo. She kept things simple, but added some extra sparkle with heat embossing and ribbons!

Congratulations to all the winners! Please send an email to customer service and provide them with your full name and the email address you would like your gift certificate sent to. Thanks to everyone for playing along and happy holidays!
