Cuttin' and Stampin' Weekly Challenge - Non-Traditional Christmas Challenge

Hi again!!  I'm filling in again for one of January's {Pocket Thursday} posts!

Use some Christmas paper in a non-traditional way.  
This week the Design Team is using Bazzill Basic Paper Believe collection to create with.

Cuttin' and Stampin' Scrappy Supplies Facebook Store Believe album has the paper and stickers available for purchase.   

Looking at that paper, it's hard to imagine it as something other than Christmas paper.  
Honestly?  I struggled with this challenge a bit.  But, alas, here's what I came up with.

These are the 3 sheets that I had to work with.  Tonight, I'm counting my blessings for double sided paper! :)

(I also used Echo Park's This and That for the embellishments.)

Before I start, I always lay my pictures out.  
To me, it's more important to have all of the pictures I want vs. cute cards. :)

(cute cards are fun, too, but I think my little girl is cuter. :))

Once my pictures are laid out, I cut papers and lay them out as well.

Here's the left side:

Here's the right side:

So, this little red heart was colored with my new favorite product - a Wink of Stella glitter brush pen.  They're like muted stickles and have become my new addiction.  In the Cuttin' and Stampin' store, we have gold, silver, red, green, and clear available now with more colors on their way!  I was pleasantly surprised with how well it went on this wooden veneer.  I am 100% positive that this will become a staple in my Pocket Pages going forward!!

Now it's your turn to have some fun and create a project using Christmas Paper in a Non-Christmas way.  You have until January 13, 2013 to enter your projects HERE.

xoxo, Amber
