Happy Holidays - DRU Style!

Hello Dies R Us Fans!
Well, it's Tuesday and it's me, Darlene, here to hopefully inspire you!  Did you see Mikha's awesome holiday creation yesterday?  WOW!  A shout out to Mikha for coming up with the idea to have the team do a week of Christmas in July creations to help us all get started on our holiday cards and, it ties in with our current challenge at our Dies R Us Challenge Blog, which is 'Christmas In July' .  It runs through Sunday, July 13th. 

Hard to believe Christmas is Less Than 6 Months away!  Yikes!  So, all week the team will be sharing Christmas flavored creations with you in hopes that we can help get you inspired to get those holiday cards started!  LOL!   Thanks Mikha!!

Here's what I've created for you today!

Dies used are:
Memory Box - Frostyville Border #98146

The design paper I've used is Graphic45 'Twelve Days of Christmas'.  Though difficult to see in the photo, I've used waterfall Stickles on the snowflakes and border to add sparkle ... so pretty IRL.  I've also cut the Cardinals and Holly die twice and did a little fussy cutting to achieve the red cardinals on the branch.

A few points of interest ...
  • Have you seen the new Memory Box & Poppy Stamp releases at the store?
  • Did you know by playing our challenge you have a chance to win a gift voucher from our store?
  • Did you know that if you find a die you'd like but it's 'out of stock' you can just click on the 'Put me on the Waiting List' and you will be email notified when it is restocked? 
  • Did you know from time to time the store has Minimum Time Offered Pre-Orders on dies from companies that they don't routinely stock?  Be sure to sign up for our Newsletter so you don't miss out on these sales!!
That's it for me today and I hope you find inspiration in my holiday creation.  I must admit, it was a little difficult to think of 'snow' & 'Christmas' when it's 90 degrees outside, lol!  But at least I've gotten my long list of holiday creations started!  

I hope you'll pop back tomorrow to see the amazing creation Sherri has to share with you!  And, be sure to tell your friends about Dies R Us!  Maybe they need a little inspiration too!

I will see you again next Tuesday.  Please come back tomorrow to see what Sherri has created.  OMG it is GORGEOUS (I peeked, lol)  ... till then, Happy Cutting!
