Celebrating Christmas

The focus on our inspiration week directs us to the sacred Christmas stamps from our Inspiration collection. The beautiful nativity and manger scene stamps are great for creating ornaments, greeting cards and decor for the holidays. They are also perfect to add on Christmas Program scrapbook pages, too.

Inspirational Words

Our Christmas sentiments can be the inspiration for creating some treasured projects and cards. It’s easy to create by pairing them with one of our Christmas image stamps to complete your design. Here are a few ways our designs work together for a great finished card design.

The Unto Us verse with a drop letter can hold it’s own attention and still complements our Christmas images well.

Want to doodle a PenPattern Snowman?

These PenPattern stamps for the holidays are a great way to sneak in some hand-eye coordination with your children over the holidays. The pattern is already started in the stamp image and the challenge is to repeat them in the rest of the snowman. The children aren’t the only ones that can have fun. Join in with them and doodle to de-stress!

You’ve seen our PenPattern Gift, PenPattern Moose and PenPattern Penguin this week and now it’s time for PenPattern Snowman.
