My favorite photo op is snow, but living in Texas I don't get the opportunity very often. I LOVE this paper line.

If any of you are familiar with Anna Griffin, you know she makes super high quality and beautifully detailed clear stamps.  She made a set of Christmas stamps and here are some projects that feature them.  I don't consider myself a stamping expert, but I thought I would share some ideas for how to use stamps in your projects.

On the card below I stamped a custom holly patterned paper background with red ink, cut out a stamped collage element from green patterned paper,  and stamped my "noel" sentiment in gold ink.


For this card I stamped a random snowflake pattern in gold ink and then die cut a label shape.  I also stamped a sentiment tag with red ink.

I added a stamped sentiment on the inside of this card as well.  Love that this set comes with so many sentiments as well as graphics.

I had a lot of fun with this layout.  I stamped several images in red ink, cut them out, embellished some, matted some. I also stamped a tag for my journaling.

 I created a grid to house my stamped images using red twine.

And finally, I stamped a frame for my accent photo using gold ink.  Look at that cutie hiding behind the Christmas tree!

I love the cards...but your layout is super creative. Great design. Our scrapbook store that featured AG's line of paper...they have been in business for years...finally close about 2 years ago and the only way for me to get AG is to order on line. I certainly missed seeing all the samples the store created. This is like being there once again. Thanks Aly.
