Holiday Expressions New Product Blog Hop

Welcome to the New Product blog hop featuring products from the Holiday Expressions catalog. 

This catalog is packed with great products to highlight the fall and winter seasons and to celebrate Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas. I know you will see some fabulous projects on this blog hop, so let's get started. 

You should have arrived here from Janna Gray's blog. If you get lost, this is a circular blog hop and a list of all participants' blogs can be found on Melinda's Everitt's blog

I chose to create two Christmas cards using two different paper packs - one traditional and one not so traditional. Let's start with the not so traditional one. 

Cats & Bats is a Halloween themed paper pack. I am not a fan of Halloween so I usually don't even purchase the paper pack but I really liked the green shades in this paper pack and thought I could work with them. This is a Christmas card created with some of the papers from that paper pack, along with a few other products. 

The second card is created using the Beary Christmas paper pack. This is a traditional Christmas paper pack - red, green, white and a few other colours. I focused on the traditional colours with the Glacier patterned paper as my background and added a few gold embellishments. 

I hope you enjoyed my projects. 

The next blog on the hop is Sheila Bennett's blog.
I'm sure she has something wonderful to share with you.

Oh wow. The first card just pops at you, the colors are so fun. The second card is stunning. I love the scalloped squares in the pattern for the card. It is lovely.
