TIPsy Tuesday - Selecting Holiday Paper



I love Christmas and as such it is hard to resist pretty holiday paper collections.  However, my selection from last year proved hard to use up as it was definitely holiday/winter themed.  When picking holiday paper this year, I looked for papers where at least one side was very general.  You have to look closely at the small prints to be sure they aren't secretly harboring snowflakes or stockings or some other small wintery print.

Here is the Peppermint collection from Crate Paper.  Almost all of these papers have some distressing on them.  Everything except the die cuts can be used for non-holiday projects.  I've used the die cuts to create a holiday scene card above.  I added some punched garland using one of the papers in the kit, brads and glossy accents.  The pink paper on the bottom half of the card is from another Crate Paper collection.

Thanks for visiting and happy holiday paper shopping!

  1. Love the holiday scene on your card.
    I have so much Christmas paper, I will never have to purchase any more....but you know I will.
    Good idea on picking paper that doesn't have to be used solely on holiday cards.

    I gave you a blog award on my blog.

  2. Great video Lisa! I also have a huge stash of Christmas paper. I actually stopped buying full collections a few years ago because I can't seem to ever use it all up. I do pick up a few sheets here and there of my favorite patterns from the newer collections. I love that this line can be both holiday and winter. So much more versatile!
