It may be September, but it's never too early to start thinking about the holidays...especially where papercrafts are concerned.
Our new Royal Christmas collection heads out the doors THIS WEEK and we can't wait to get it in your hands to see what you create!
Designer Gerry van Gent is on hand today with some stunning inspiration:
This layout is so full of beautiful details, it hard to stop staring at it. We love all the fussy cut elements she's added here, pulling it all together in adorable little clusters:
As if those weren't enough, she's also created something so special with this hand-stitched Christmas tree, adorned with a red-stamped star. What a brilliant idea!
Gabrielle Pollacco created something a bit different...a Royal Christmas collection without the Christmas.
We can't think of a better way to stretch your supplies than to use them for themed and non-themed pages. Just look at this stunner of a layout:
So much elegance, but this is layout has nothing to do with Christmas at all! We love the versatility of these patterns! After all, we want you to use up every last scrap once you bring it into your stash.
Here you can see the foundation Gabrielle created for this layout:
From there, Gabrielle was able to build onto the background, adding embellishments in just the right places to complement her photo.
Notice how the background motifs serve as clusters in Gabrielle's embellishment arrangements? She does it here as well, and it works beautifully:
Gabrielle also created this gorgeous card using Royal Christmas, one of our new charms, some trims and tons of texture!
That little Charmer is one of our favorites, but we're pretty much smitten with the whole set.
So much inspiration for the holidays!
