One of the fabulous products in the Holiday Mini Catalog is this Holiday Mix Décor Elements.

It comes in your choice of four different colors — Real Red, Chocolate Chip, Black, and White. Stampin’ Up advertises it as containing the letters for “Joy,” “Snow,” and “Noel.” But surely there are other things that can be spelled with those letters… My friends over at Stampin’ Addicts and I put our heads together and came up with the following list of 65 (yes 65!) other words and phrases you can spell with one sheet of the Holiday Mix Décor Elements.

I love this tree! Have I mentioned that I love this tree? It is a fabulous tree, and I was so excited when Paula wanted to put one up at her house! It looks so great on her wall. Actually, I’ve never seen a wall that it looks bad on! Here are some of the highlights as we put it up:

Every since I showed my mom the Definitely Decorative catalog with the beautiful Thoughts & Prayers Tree, she had been tossing around the idea of putting it up in the dining room. But it wasn’t until she saw the tree up on the wall in my library that she knew she had to get it! My mom custom designs Judaic needlepoint and has many beautiful pieces on her own walls. She decided that the tree would look beautiful in the dining room behind this piece:

But we didn’t want to just put the picture on top of the tree, so we decided to leave a blank spot on the wall where the picture would go, with the trunk below it and the branches above. This was easy to do, since the tree comes in six pieces. The first thing we did was to mark off the corners of the pictures with Post-It notes.

Then we removed the picture and began to put up the branches of the tree.

Eve was my handy dandy helper throughout!

Finally, we re-hung the picture.

When we were satisfied with where it was hung, we added the trunk below it.

Here is the end result.

Don’t you love it? My parents were so happy with how their dining room wall came out! And it took less than hour to put up! You can download the new Definitely Decorative brochure and see all of the amazing Decor Elements available.

My dad is big-time into family history and genealogy. It is his passion, and find relatives and connecting them is so much more than a hobby to him. When I saw this project on my Stampin’ Up demonstrator website, I knew that I just had to make one for him for Father’s Day. He was adamant that we take a family picture when we were all there for Passover. I’m so glad that he did, because it gave me the perfect family picture to use! I am so impressed with how this came out, and it took me less than an hour to make! I can’t wait to give it to him!

Stamps: Lovely Letters, Simple Serif Alphabet & Numbers
Ink: Kiwi Kiss, Chocolate Chip
Paper: Urban Garden Designer Series Paper, Whisper White, Kiwi Kiss, Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Small Chocolate Thoughts & Prayers Tree (Decor Elements), Stamp-a-ma-Jig, 14″x 18″ frame

To create the background, I used both 12″ x 12″ sheets of the same Kiwi Kiss pattern from the Urban Garden Designer Series Paper pack. I used the 14″ x 18″ paper insert in the frame as my guide, and glued the patterened paper to it. I left one sheet 12″ x 12″. I cut three pieces off of the  second sheet — one 6″ x 12″, one 2″ x 12″, and one 2″ x 6″. I pieced these together, and you can’t really see seams unless you get relly close to it!
