Paper Issues Christmas Theme | American Crafts

Happy Thanksgiving week.  

As we get ready for Thanksgiving, it's also starting to look a little like Christmas, especially here.  We have had a tree up for a week and a half, getting outside lights up, cards ordered,and ready to just enjoy the holidays.

Paper Issues is starting off with a Christmas theme today.  So link up your Christmas project.
I dug into the adorable American Crafts Peppermint Express for this layout.   
The cut out tree was a cut file from Studio Calico last year.   I filled with patterned papers on the back and some photos from last year.  I needed more of a focal point, so I knew I had to pick a photo of Emma showing her excitement on Christmas morning. 
 Such a cute collection...I love AC's classy, modern, but a little whimsy to their collections.  To attach the ribbon (garland), I just used my Scotch ATG gun.
 The star is letterpress from one of the Studio Calico letterpress plates.
So head over to Paper Issues and link up your Christmas projects.  The giveaway is a $20 gift card from the Paper Issues shop.

You can always use my code for 20% at the shop as well.
