Hello everybody, lego here with a post for the upcoming holidays. Fall has turned really frosty over here now, I heard the first carol in a movie recently (btw it was a 1963-John-Wayne-south-seas-flick shown at the Vienna film festival. Oh, I loved it)… and shops are stocking up on all the red-green-gold-snowy white stuff. So I thought about the jolly season and… Christmas cards, of course! Especially with the beautiful new kit in store ;-) I was keen to start. After a bit of pondering I ended up looking at my old ones. Maybe you’ll get inspired by looking at your creations, as well. I did actually <LOL> by the one I came up with in 2010.
I more or less just redid it. Firstly, because I really liked the layout and secondly, and more importantly, because I so loved making it. I took a basic Christmas shape – a star – as my starting point and ended up in an element frenzy.
Whoohoo! What fun I had! So I just stole my idea and had my way with SP’s darling new nutcracker kit among many others. No kidding! I’m convinced I opened every single SP kit folder on my computer and took at least one element. See what I mean?
And then I found the ready-to-use-tree element in the nutcracker folder (what a beauty!) and thought why not use this as well. It’s a super-quick page also following the shape principle. In a very reduced yet effective manner, so to speak.
This idea is actually not restricted to Christmas. You can take letters or any other symbol as well. SP has a lovely kit called “Scallops, Shapes and More” in the Shoppe. You’ll find borders, frames but also stars and hearts there. So you can play and play, LOL!! Can’t wait to see what you will come up with!
