What Did Santa Bring You?

Hello and Happy New Year! We're so pleased you've stopped by on the first day of our TWELFTH Jingle Belles season! 

Once again, we'll be publishing a new card prompt every other Friday, with examples from both Stephanie and Lauren; then you'll have ten days or so to join in. If, like us, you make one card per week, by December first (or thereabouts) we'll each have nearly fifty unique, handmade cards. No need to make a commitment or participate every single week, just jump in when you can and have fun along with us; but remember the more cards you make now, the less you'll have to do in December!

So let's get started! First up, we KNOW you've got some brand new goodies you're dying to use, so break out those gifties (whether they came from Santa OR you treated yourself in the pre- or post-holiday sales!) and use them to make your first holiday card of 2022! Be sure to mention what you've used, so we can be suitably jealous (and you never know, perhaps enabled to purchase ourselves)!

Here's what we made this week:

Stephanie says, "Santa brought me the Create-in-Quads Mistletoe Stencils from Taylored Expressions.  It is so fun to use one set of stencils and end-up with four coordinated but different cards.  I paired them with different Taylored Expressions Sentiments & even some Eyelet Outlet Holiday Flower Bling."

Lauren says, "Stephanie gave me a beautiful Spellbinders' Woodland Wreath Die Set which I've used to frame up some paper and stickers from Photoplay's Christmas Cheer line, to which I treated myself at Paper Anthology in December. I filled in with an older plaid from Photoplay, some gorgeously realistic Prima Holly Leaves and a scattering of round red Eyelet Outlet Sequins."


Link your "What Santa Brought" cards right here by 6pm (Eastern) on Wednesday, January 12th. Keyword for galleries and Flickr is JB-22-01.

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!

Happy New Year, Wow 12th year that is awesome. Love your prompt I'm off to the community post box today to see if my present to me is there, if not I'm sure I have something I've gifted me. Awesome inspiration cards too.

Happy New Year! Santa Marianne got some great deals in the Black Friday sales and most of these happened to arrive on the same day, namely yesterday. So I look forward to start playing with them.
