MDS Seasonal Savings Blog Hop!



Welcome to the Stampin' Addicts MDS Seasonal Sale Blog Hop! We are showcases some of the Great MDS Downloads that are on sale until Nov. 30th for 30% off!! If you are traveling through the Hop you've come here from Kim's Blog. I'm showcasing the MDS Digital Kit Waiting For Santa

This is a great kit for creating Letters to Santa, Thank You cards and fun Gift Tags. In this kit you will find lots of pre-made templates that you can use as is or alter, which is what I've done. To start things off using the Dear Santa Postcard I turned it into a Recipe Card for a Cookie Swap. Here's the front & Back images... 


With one of the pre-made Tags I created an adorable Tag with a little help from the No Peeking download that you could print out and add to a Cello bag filled with a Reindeer Mix. This would be really cute for Preschoolers. 


And of course you can use the DSP in the Kit to create a cute Christmas Card! I used the freeform tool with the Reindeer and this mitten in this one to color parts of the image in by creating a Brush Layer. Gives it a whimsical look.

  3. The projects are really cute. I especially like the "Reindeer Refreshments." The post card with the recipe is adorable. That would be great for a recipe swap.

  4. Thanks for joining us with your wonderful projects, Holly! Love them all :) The cookie swap recipe card is adorable and so useful! The Reindeer Refreshment is stinkin' cute, and the card is just a clever use of the brush tool!
