Lizzie Anne Holiday Preview

ED - Ooh! All of Lizzie Anne's Holiday/Christmas sets are currently 20% off - including the cutie I used below.  Hurry, its just for a limited time!!

Good morning!

I am here to share the October Design Team Challenge from Lizzie Anne Designs.  This month we're doing a holiday preview featuring some of the many Christmas sets that Lizzie Anne has to offer.  We were challenged to create a card and a non-card project.  Each DT member is sharing projects from different sets, so you'll be sure to have lots of eye candy today!

I used the Deck the Halls set.  So, so cute!

For my non-card project, I made a petal box. These are fun and easy!

I created some patterned paper using my stamps and then sliced it up to decorate my box. I added some glitter to the candy canes after assembling everything and boy are they cute! I tied the box up with some crinkle ribbon and added a tag.

And here is my card. I just love it!

I stamped the single stocking three times onto cardstock and then again onto patterned paper. I paper pieced the stocking and then glittered them up. There's nothing like holiday projects to make me break out the glitter! I really like this color combination, too.  There is also a string of stockings in this set that I can't wait to use.

So there you have it - a little holiday kick start. Head over to the Lizzie Anne Designs blog to see what the other DT members created for this challenge.

Thanks for stopping by, have a great day!
