I can’t wait for my club night this week.  One of my lovely club members asked for a Christmas project.  She is a fabulous scrapbooker and I knew right away I would use the Signs of Santa bundle.  I created a page that she can use as a title page to her grandsons Christmas scrapbook.

Santa’s Workshop Specialty DSP works perfectly with the Signs of Santa bundle.  There are multiple dies in the set that die cut the images in the DSP.  Quick, easy and oh so cute!!

By adding some of our embossing paste to the die cut letters, I think I created what appears to be accumulating snow. I love the look.  Embossing the letters with the Softly Falling embossing folder enhanced that look even more.  But, wait, I couldn’t stop.  After embossing, I spritzed the letters with my Champagne Shimmer Paint concoction. All three techniques together created the perfect title for my Signs of Santa page.

Aren’t those elves just darlin’? And yes, I used the dies to cut the DSP.  You get two elf dies, one right and one left, so you can cut all the little elves your heart desires. And did I mention the white parts on the paper are flocked. So, that means instant dimension, texture and interest.  I even cut the sign post with a die from the set.  Can’t get any easier than that.

Next it was time for Santa to make an appearance and yes, he was cut with a die. But, alas, I did fussy cut the bag of toys.  It’s a little concession to pay for such a stinkin cute look.
