New projects from our Design Team and Guest Designer for December Lisa Zappa

Hi Everyone its Vicki Chrisman here, filling in for Sandy while shes away.  I'm excited to share these beautiful projects with you that were created by members of our Design Team , and by this months Guest Designer Lisa Zappa.  We are thrilled to have Lisa back as Guest Designer for the month of December.  Lisa's projects, and tutorials will be posted here throughout the month.  You wont want to miss them! She has lots of great things lined up to share.Below is a photo of some gorgeous Christmas ornaments Lisa created using our "Merry Christmas Creative Scraps".
Lisa has a tutorial posted here on her blog   ** pinwheel medallions**  with step by step instructions on how to make these fun ornaments.    I will share the link again at the bottom of this post.

There is lots of inspiration to share from our creative Design Team.. so lets get started.

Pam Hooten Created this Beautiful card using the new  "Angel Blessings" set of Clear Art Stamps. I am loving this done in the soft blue and white!

Angel Blessings

Here is another gorgeous card made with this same set, created by Design Team member Michele Kovack

Same set, and two totally different and beautiful looks!

 Something as simple as adding a stamped image to you Christmas letter or mailing envelope just makes them even more special.  I helped my mom with her Christmas letter last week, and had her pick out her favorites from this set, to add to her printed Christmas letter, and to her envelopes.

I stamped the angel and added the little star onto the envelopes, and then accented  the  wings, and  star , with a stardust pen for some added sparkle.  You can see more about this and the Pinwheel Christmas tree I created on my blog today. here: Vickis blog post

After seeing these fun Cookie Cutters and Stockings our Design Team member Mary Hamer made, I know what I'm wanting to make next.  Aren't they cute?

Mary used our :Christmas Memories" Heartwarming Vintage Cardstock Stickers, "Christmas Time" Vintage  Cuts, and "Christmas Mail" Clear Art Stamps to create these projects.

I will be using that "To:, and From:" stamp from this stamp set  for my gift tags this year. How handy!  But look at these totally darling mittens on these tags. They would make great gift card holders too!

And below a stunning project made by Design Team member Melissa Phillips.  Melissa used an image from the "Christmas Image and Journal Notes"

And if your feeling alittle more colorful and retro.. check out this totally FUN card that  Design Team member Julie Campbell did with this Santa image from the resived "Seasonal Calendar Creative Scraps"  (double sided)

Lots of great inspiration from the girls huh?  We hope it's inspired you to feel creative today!

Thanks for coming by ... and be sure to pop over and check out Lisa Zappa's pinwheel tutorial HERE.

                                             HAPPY CREATING!
