Most Wonderful Time of the Year...

Well, yes, I think fall is the most wonderful time of the year, but...


Kids are back in school, with all the insanity that goes with it, vacations are a not-so-distant memory, and it is once again time to get busy with the important things in life...crafting for the holidays! Yay! All of September the Dream Team will be featuring all the new goodies we have for the "Most wonderful time of the year", the fall and winter holiday season. New stencil designs, and new dies, all to be found on-line through the Stencil with Style web-site, or your local papercrafting store.

Here's my holiday inspiration for this week:

Dual Alphabet Die (DD005)
Nested Stockings Die (DG692)
I just love the versatility of our new Dual Alphabet Dies (DD005). You can use the negative image for one card, like I did, and use the positive images for a second card, or store the pieces in the great storage caddy that comes with the dies and use them with other pieces you've saved! Endless possibilities!!

Dual Alphabet Dies & Storage Caddy  DD005

Today I've paired the alphabets with the smallest of our new Nested Stockings Die (DG692) to create a fun and colorful Christmas card. Finish it off with a cute white ric rak from May Arts, a little glitter on the stockings and you've got it! This is a #10 size card. the base card is 7 3/4" x 9 1/4" folded to 3 7/8" x 9 1/4", the perfect size for this project.

Of course, we have our monthly challenge for you to play along, so post your own holiday creations, and use the Inlinkz tool on the Dream It Up! blog, for a chance to win the prize at the end of the month. We also have our fabulous Guest Designer for the month of September, Wendy Price! Here's the list of our "A" Team with their links for the week:
