Don’t Open Until Christmas

Hello Crafty Friends! Happy Monday and Happy October! My favorite month of the year!

When I was off on my scrapbooking beach retreat a couple of weeks ago, I started working on my Christmas cards for the year. I finished 16 cards at the retreat, all made with a favorite old holiday collection, BasicGrey’s 25th & Pine. Today I have one of those cards to share with you, based on Reverse Confetti’s SFYTT #34.

Monthly Reverse Confetti Challenge, Sketch For You to Try (SFYTT #34). March 2016.:

I used to love playing along with sketch challenges, but it’s been quite awhile since I’ve had the chance. I thought it would be fun to bring some past sketches with me to the beach, and work my way through a bunch of old favorites. Really helps with the creativity when I get busy gabbing and blabbing.

Once again, it was a goal to use up as many of my old 25th & Pine scraps as I could, so this sketch was just the ticket with all those layers. I used a mix of papers for the background, and then several of the Snippets pages were used for the center panel. Stickers, twine, and enamel dots finish the scene.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you all have a wonderful day!
