Holly Berry

Hey there, welcome back! Before we get into today’s post, I wanted to remind you of Concord & 9th’s Thursday Throwback sale, from 10/24-10/28. Some of the items I’m sharing today are on sale, and I used affiliate links to Concord & 9th for those items. The other affiliate links in this post are too Scrapbook.com. I shared a post with links to my favorite sale items yesterday, you can get to it here.

Today’s post is the latest edition to my Christmas series. This time we are moving to the more recent release (by recent I mean September lol). The Holly Berry Turnabout is the star of today’s post. The Mistletoe Dies play a bit of a supporting role, but they will get they’re own post next week. Don’t worry, I’ll get back to older products after the Mistletoe die post. I’m also going to put together a post using non Christmas sets (I did this last year, I think it’s good to revisit).

We’ll follow past format, and start with the watercolor card. I shared this a few weeks ago, for a Simon Says Stamp challenge.

I had so much fun making these, as you can see! The last three are going to be shared on the mistletoe post next week, along with 2 new ones. I’ll admit that the ones shared here are my favorite, but I was able to come up with some more designs, skipping the holly berry stamp.

Thanks for stopping by, and staying through to the end!
