Layout of the Week - Christmas DVD Case
If you're a reader of my scrapbook store blog Whimzee's Girls Online, you may have already read about this Christmas DVD case. But since I've been "a little busy" this week, getting ready for Thanksgiving and because more of you read this blog than that one, I thought I'd cheat a bit and post the same project on each blog. Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! We had dinner at our house this year, it was great having all the kids' grandparents here. We hope to spend Thanksgiving with even more of our family next year. We're thankful for all our family and great friends this year!
This DVD case is a fun holiday project if you're looking for a great way to package those DVD's of photos you're sending to the relatives this year. I created this project in the EK Success Craft Fest I attended a couple weeks ago. Don't worry, if you aren't sending out photo DVD's this year, our instructor had a great idea for this case. She said that she uses it to house a special holiday music CD she creates each year for family and friends. Not being a big baker, she uses gives it as a hostess gift when others might give baked bread or goodies. And if you aren't looking to give DVD's or CD's this year, take a close look at the project and 'scraplift' it into a card or scrapbook page.
The DVD case project features K & Company's new Christmas collection Evergreen by designer Brenda Walton (I saw a few of the items we used in Michael's this week). We used the small paper pad from this collection which is perfect for card makers and those of you who create albums smaller than 12 x 12. Another winner is the adhesive border pack, this pack is full of borders that are great for trimming to the size you need or using as is. While we didn't order from this collection, you may be able to find it elsewhere. We did order the small paper pads and adhesive borders from a couple other collections, so be on the look out for those in the store. We loved using these products in creating the DVD case and we're sure you'll love them too!
One last thing...if you're looking for more scrapbooking inspiration, stop by the ning.com site I'm moderating for the store. I've set it up as a place for our customers & fans to share their creations and chat about scrapbooking and papercrafting. Come on by the Whimzee's Scrapbook Studio online scrapbooking community and check out all the new projects that our members are uploading daily. If you're in the Portland area, you'll find the site especially helpful, we have an event calendar over there with all our crops & events listed!
I'm ready to have a fun weekend, my sweet husband's birthday is tomorrow and I'm all ready to decorate for Christmas! Hope you all enjoy your weekends and be sure to join me at Ann's Virtual Girls' Night Out! Ann's a fellow Portlander (not sure if that's the correct word), but it's been great to meet someone cool from my area who understands the whole "Oregonian" thing! Meet tons of other cool bloggers and get lot's of those precious comments we're all looking for! Oh, that reminds me, I'd love it if you'd leave comments for me, even if you're not a blogger! I love to see what everyone has to say about my posts. Happy Friday!
