For my project I have a Christmas Banner that I made with the new Frosted Paper set from CTMH. This will be available August 1st! If you don't have a rep, check out my webstore or contact me for info! I love the frosty blues and whites... it's not the traditional colors but I always think that blue in holiday décor gives it a cool look. I used CTMH stamps to stamp Merry on the first rosette, then stamped each letter with a new Ink color on each of the other banner pieces. Tied them together with various blue ribbons and now it's ready to hang for the holidays!

I also made a gift container from CTMH. I used a new CTMH stamp and additional new ink colors so you can tell I've gone through my book and pre-ordered a lot of new items! LOL
Here's the gift container:

All ready to pack a special gift in for someone on my list!
I have blog Candy!
A CTMH stamp set- D1546 Frame Flair
It'll be perfect to get a jump on making some cute Holiday tags!
