Your delightful holiday projects once again take center stage at the Crate Paper blog! Round two brings with it a second helping of creative wonders via cards, layouts, mini albums, and more! You only have to peek so far to realize there's ample investment and time in each project, so when you VOTE for your favorite from this bunch, take both into consideration as these girls have done an amazing job! And don't forget, Winners are scheduled to announce tomorrow - all FIVE of them!
Merry + Joy Cards :: Gladys Chia
Classic and Stylish, both these cards make an entrance all their own. And if you look closely, Peppermint's patterned paper is the star!
2010 Christmas Mini Album :: Mary-Ann Maldonado
There were many album images provided to us by Mary-Ann, but we're sharing two of our favorites 'cause the cover caught our attention first! The layering of houses, and the snowflakes just above them are super cute - but, even more so are the Peppermint stacked buttons!! We might have to borrow that idea at some point...
Julaften Layout :: Christin Gronnslett
Christin mentioned in her email to us that she loves the Peppermint chipboard collection! From it, she's used two frames for bringing attention to both her photo, and journaling. Them frames come in extra handy!
Noel Card :: Jennifer Cuthbertson
Wouldn't it be a great surprise to open a card like this and to discover three distinctive, decorative areas to gaze upon? It's almost as if there are three cards instead of just one! Beautiful, Jennifer!
Enjoy Christmas Layout :: Renata Watanabe
This layout is really all about color, isn't it? And the scenic set-up is cute-as-can-be! Most notably, Mr.Santa riding on a sled with a reindeer just ahead! Also, we love the trail of hexagons left behind by Santa - they create a wonderful path to follow!
Snowfall Card :: Izzy Anderson
Izzy doubled up two sheets of different colored, pre-punched cardstock pieces to create the bi-color snowflakes on her card - She then attached them to Peppermint's Candy Cane patterned paper.
Mini Tag Calendar :: Gina Moretti
With the new year just around the corner, Gina put together a twelve month mini tag album from Peppermint's patterned paper collection. And word had it, the collection made creating the album a breeze! We love that! Thanks Gina!
Holiday Cards :: Dana F.
Dana opted to make some last minute holiday cards and thought it'd be fun to submit them for the event. Well, we appreciate you doing so, Dana! The modern cards were an instant hit with us!
Love You & Our Tree Layouts :: Amber Engelhardt
These very last two layouts are from our blog reader, Amber. Her white-on-white snowflakes and background paper put the focus entirely on her photos, and the small embellishment assemblies surrounding them. A perfect combination for Winter!
We'll return tomorrow to disclose the winners from today's and yesterday's post! As such, Crate Paper would like to kindly thank all that submitted a handmade project towards this week's ongoing event, A Very Crate Christmas. We hope that you've been pleased with the presentation and have enjoyed finding your project'(s) here! Good Luck - may the voting proceed!
