Believe Revisited

Hi friends. How are you coming along on your holiday projects? Today the Papertrey Senior Design Team has some fun projects to show you using an older Papertrey set called Believe. It's packed full of timeless images and sentiments that will be perfect for holiday projects.

I have to admit that although I craft daily for the blog and my Etsy shop, I usually don't end up with a big stash of goodies to call my own. And with the holiday rush that seems to come around this time of year, it's hard to sit down and create a lot of goodies at one time.
Sometimes it's just best to create what you can when you can. If your schedule only allows a little bit of crafty time here and there, just make the most of it. Enjoy the process. Today I created one pretty card to add to my holiday stash.
I just dabbled here and there, pulling together the elements as I went along. I colored my image on Kraft cardstock with Copics. The pretty finishing touches were added with the help of snowflakes dies, felt, ribbon, baker's twine and scalloped dies.
While I had my supplies out, I used some leftover supplies and embellishments to create a fun tag to add to a glassine bag filled with yummy candies. In a pinch, I know that packaged candies will always make a quick gift for teachers, etc. I have an old bread tin that I use to keep my tags in until I'm ready for holiday packaging. Being prepared when it comes time to wrap up the gifts and get them out the door is the key to avoiding some holiday stress. It's hard to carve out time but even 30 minutes here and there can be a big help.
I hope you enjoyed my projects today. Be sure to do a little blog hopping to see what the other Papertrey girls have created with Believe.
