12 Weeks of Christmas Newsletter

The holidays are rapidly approaching and to help you with that, I am trying something new this year called the 12 Weeks of Christmas.

Do you need help with Holiday ideas?  Need idea for your Christmas cards or gifts?  Do you want some Holiday inspiration?

If your answer is yes to any of these questions, then say HELLO to the 12 Weeks of Christmas Newsletter.  This will be a weekly newsletter sent out on Wednesday’s starting October 6th.  Each Wednesday, the newsletter will contain a card or project (which will include hand made gift ideas, decorations, tags, and packaging).  You will get a picture of the project, a list of supplies used to create it and a brief description/instruction (if needed) for you to make this project.

Here is an example:

This card uses the Thumping technique to create the trees – I used this same technique earlier on a fall card.  For this example I inked my trees with Pear Pizzazz ink and then used Stampin’ Write markers in Wild Wasabi and Garden Green to thump the image before I stamped it on my paper.  I went back and added accents with the Smooch Pearlized Accent ink in Gold.

Stampin’ Up! Supplies:

  • Card stock: Wild Wasabi, Garden Green, Soft Suede,Whisper White
  • Ink: Pear Pizzazz, Soft Suede, Stampin’ Write Markers: Soft Suede, Garden Green Wild Wasabi
  • Stamp sets: Paisley Prints, Peaceful Season
  • Big Shot Die-Cut Machine, Square Lattice Textured Impressions Folder
  • Smooch Pearlized Accent Ink Gold Lame

The first issue will be released on October 6th and run for 12 weeks ending on December 22nd. These will not be posted on my blog or website – they will only be sent to those that are signed up for the 12 Weeks of Christmas Newsletter.  Anyone can sign up – CLICK HERE – fill in the information and click send to be added to my list.  If you can’t email this way then click under my picture where it says Contact Me and add it to the comments section and submit it there.  Thanks!
Happy Holidays!

One thought on “12 Weeks of Christmas Newsletter

  1. Like what you did with this stamp Monica. I’m not a paisley fan, but I actually like your arrangement of the trees. I did get a good chuckle today when I looked at your bingo pick. I love playing bingo and play whenever I can (which is not too often). However, I have “NEVER” won a game in my life — but I still love it (figure that one out). Anyway, true to form, I am in Round 4 and haven’t had to use one “chip” yet — LOL. Some things never change.
