Vintage Christmas Crafts, Cards, Tutorial, Challenge & Links to Printables!

Hi Everyone,

We are off to set up at the Puyallup Antique Show (1000 booths) so I’m tardy with my post as I’ve been sorting mountains of old postcards, books, magazines and other ephemera to sell. Next week we are at the CK Scrapbook Show in WA.

You may have seen the cool Wood Spoon Albums that DT Member Michele Kovack designed with her Halloween and Christmas spoon albums but now we have a tutorial you can print out to follow as well. Just click it on big and save it. Plus see the awesome rooster card Michele just posted!

If you are getting in the mood to start some Christmas projects, DT Member Jan Hennings is hosting a ‘Anything Christmas Challenge at Splitcoast and it never closes so you can post Christmas projects there anytime, you just need to add the code CSSC196 to add to the gallery.  Check out this very cute Kleenex Box Darlene Pavlick did for it with our Vintage Christmas Stamps. Darlene found a tutorial HERE.


DT Leader Vicki Chrisman used our Born To Fly Stamp Set to create Christmas Fairies for an ad and look at how cute they turned out! Papers are all from our CD #1


The birdie ornaments Vicki made with the discontinued Tattered Angels embossed frames we sell were so popular I wanted to show you the Christmas ones she did last year in case you missed them. She used images from the Christmas Scraps

Ornaments 1

Look at these adorable chipboard Christmas stockings Cindy Bears from Australia sent me photos of using our Christmas Creative Scraps.


This is a card DT Member Julie Campbell created last year with our Christmas Booklet. When I saw it again I wanted to show you how sweet it was.  Also, look at this beautiful little layout Julie just posted also!


I have one more pretty Christmas card to share from last year by DT Member Linda Duke  but I have so many Christmas samples I will be showing this month!  Linda used our Seasons Greetings Stamps with a Spellbinders die. I just love the winter muff fluff she added!


You can also see Christmas samples HERE in our Online Gallery. It’s stopped working for some of our DT ladies but still has some adorable projects.

Here are the link to our 2010 Christmas Printable Santa and it was also a DT Calendar Challenge and a bunch of other inspiring samples.

NOTE: We just put our Calendar Scraps on SALE Half Price as the calendar won’t work for 2012 but the images on the opposite side are wonderful and we have our Free 2012 Printable Calendar you can always use.

Wishing you joy & creativity
