Making Joyful Arrangements

Well hello there!

I’m glad you’ve popped over for our second day of fun, as we’re sharing peeks from my upcoming Happiest Holiday Collection! 

Thank you SO MUCH for the wonderfully kind comments many of you left of my blog post yesterday — it just made my day to read them!! Glad to know, too, that so many of you love those cute little vintage bottle brush trees as much as I do.

Speaking of cute Christmas “things”, I really got wrapped up in the idea of celebrating the stuff we use to decorate our homes for the holidays. The handmade ornaments and natural elements, the amaryllis blooms and boxwood branches, and whatever else reminds of us the joy and hope and love we feel at Christmastime… How could I draw a few of those special things into a stamp set that would make your cards come to life in a fresh way? Well, let me show you one example.

Joyful Arrangements is here to show you that handlettered holiday cards can feel as rich and festive as your holiday mantel. You could even color the objects in the NOËL image (above) to coordinate with what’s on your holiday mantel... or vice versa!! I am especially fond of topiaries, and I’ve got a few of those in this set. All told, there are four different hand-drawn sentiments, with special surprises drawn into each one! I think you’ll really enjoy using these, and will come up with exciting ways to use them on your cards!

Why don’t you take a spin around the Bloom Brigade’s blogs and see how they’re showcasing this joyful set?


Hope to see you all back here tomorrow — we’ve got TWO MORE DAYS of sneaky peeks to share before we’re ready to put everything up in the shop for you! Have a great day!

I just love this crafty Noel! Honestly, it reminds me of paging through the December Martha Stewart Living at Thanksgiving and picking out my favorite crafty thing for the holidays (and the one I could actually do lol). And I always get an Amaryllis for Christmas! Can't wait to get this set :)
