Holiday Traditions with Elizabeth

September 4, 2014

We invite you to join us this week as we share more inspiration featuring products from our new release, Season’s Greetings, and as our designers share some of their favorite holiday traditions and memories.



“One of my favorite traditions during the holidays is to take an evening drive to see all the festive lights and decorations throughout town. All the twinkling beauty (mixed in with lots of Michigan snow) adds such magical excitement and wonder to the holidays.”
–Elizabeth Allan

Speaking of twinkling, Elizabeth captured lots of sparkle in her darling gift card holder. Happy Berries, stamped on light gray Inchie Arts ATC Art Squares with an added touch of glitter, creates a dazzling pocket for some Christmas cheer.




Lucky us! We have a special designer peek at how she created the pocket. A darker toned ATC Art Square trimmed on three sides and glued between the front and back covers creates not only the pocket, but adds a beautiful two-toned pinstripe to the sides.


A medallion created from the T for Transparent sentiment set, 30-259 Wonderful & Jolly, adds a simply stylish greeting to the gift.


Want to use your holiday stamps today to make an all-occasion gift pocket? Elizabeth made a second holder for a “Happy, Happy” treat by changing the colors of the berries and designing her medallion using elements from 30-254 Beauty of the Season.

    Creative genius, Elizabeth! Driving around to see the lights was always one of my favorite activities for the holidays & I still love it! Of course, it’d be even more beautiful with snow which we almost never have.
