Shellye McDaniel:

 

“Snowman Card”

I focused on the various round stickers found on the Evergreen sticker sheets to create this simple snowman embellishment.  For the head I punched a 1.5″ circle from one of the 6X6 papers and inked around the edge to distress.  The face was created with a few of the Candy Buttons.  I hand-cut a snowy hill for the snowman to sit on and added a few other shaped stickers to the wintery setting.

“Season’s Greetings Card”

This card is a focus on the decorative borders strip stickers found on the Element Stickers sheet.  I first cut a piece of white cardstock to 3.25″ and then cut the two border strips to the same size.  I layered on the straight edged sticker first and then came back with the scalloped border pieces, which I added with foam adhesive.  The large sentiment sticker was also added with foam adhesive.  I further embellished with a couple of the chipboard sticker pieces and a couple of the foliage die-cuts.

Melissa Phillips: The Evergreen Alphabet and Shape Stickers are so unique and fun to use on holiday projects.  I love thinking outside of the box when it comes to just how to use them on my cards.  I combined them with the Evergreen Chalkboard Wood Tags for my cards today, making them pop by adhering them with dimensional adhesive, using a metal snowflake in place of the “o” in Joy, and splitting the sentiment as in the second card.  You can express your holiday greetings in any way you choose by including the Alphabet Stickers in your Christmas product stash.

Becky Williams: For this layout I used the Aurora collection and the color scheme worked so well with the colors of my girls’ clothes on the first day back to school last month.

 

I added in some flair and bits of chipboard along with strips of patterned paper.

I used to be one who shied away from purple in all forms but I really like the mix of coral, purple and blue in this collection.

 

The “back 2 school” frame was one that I created in Silhouette Studio along with the phrase “first day” and you can download this for yourself here:

After I cut out the “back 2 school” frame I backed the openings with patterned paper from the Aurora line.
