Season of Style Christmas Sampler

Hello, all! This month when my stamp group and I get together we will be making this framed Christmas Sampler, inspired by others I saw on the Stampin' Up Demonstrator website. We made one last year for Halloween, and it was such a big hit that they requested we do another one for Christmas. This is what I came up with, and I had to pull out all the stops with products both new and retired to fill up the twelve squares. The frame size is 8"x10", and each square measures 2 1/4". 

What I think is so much fun about this project is that you can create your own using supplies in your stash. I would suggest working around a simple color scheme. Once you've established that, pull out all your Christmas goodies and stamp and punch away! And don't forget some sparkly embellishments! This was such a fun project to make, and I think it would make a great gift.
