Fairy Tale Christmas - Papertrey Ink

Fairy Tale Christmas is the latest kit from the genius mind of Betsy Veldman and will be available at Papertrey Ink tomorrow night. If you are even slightly interested in this kit, run now and set a reminder to order yours before they are gone. Once you see the unlimited possibilities with this kit, you will want, no NEED to have it! As I began playing with this kit, the amount of ideas I had were astounding. So many beautiful elements to create with! And there truly is something for everyone in this kit. From the beginning crafter to the advanced, it is all inside Fairy Tale Christmas!

My first card is lovely and easy. So easy. Which is my favorite kind of card. The card that leaves everyone trying to figure out if you REALLY made it or not. :D The pre-printed papers in the kit, along with coordinating dies, made the front of this card. Snip, snip, crank. I could have left the card finished, but with these cool clear card shaker elements and sequins, I had to step it up!

The plastic shaker component fits perfectly inside the opening. Fill. Adhere. Add to card base. Simple and so gorgeous!

Taking up another notch, the idea behind the kit is storybook Christmas. The kit helps you create small books. Books that can be used to hold gift cards, create ornaments, or more!

Layering the pre-printed papers, along with using the dies, I made this incredible ornament. Look at the wondrous world inside! Especially note the year stamp at the top. The stamps have years that you can use. Add it to an ornament like this, or even stamp on the spine of the book!

Oh yes, I took it up another notch with lights! The kit has a set of battery-operated lights! How amazing does this book ornament become now?! The switch can turn the lights off and on. The batter is also replaceable. The small LEDs do not get warm either.

Who doesn't want to open this book, walk inside, and celebrate the holidays?!?!

I want to decorate my entire tree with these! The attention to detail is truly astounding. My mind is completely blown!

One more card to share. This one is also a shaker card, but I utilized the stamps and dies in the kit more for this one.

After stamping and die cutting the scene elements, I decided to place them inside the card, inside a shaker. Like a snow globe world.

My favorite part of this card is the acetate for holding the shaker elements. I took a cosmetic sponge and rubbed white StazOn ink upon the surface. I wanted it to look like a frozen window. Adding a few stamped snowflakes from the kit really polished the look off! So fun!

Gorgeous cards, tags & boxes. Like the "year" stamp to be added to the ornament or books. Great idea to rub some ink on the acetate to create a cold or frozen window, such good hints and tips!

So many pretty things. I love them all but the best thing I learned from you was using the Stazon to create to create frosted windows. This is a great idea I will use many times this year.
