Poinsettia Are My Christmas Decor!


We are so close to Christmas break in our house. All that’s left are classroom parties, a chili potluck and caroling at the church and a Futsal (form of indoor soccer) game and then it’s vacation!

Even though we are busy, I have decorated for Christmas, and I do take the time to sit and enjoy them. Though my tree is teddy bear theme, I have sprinkled fabulous red poinsettias around for decor. I just love them!

When I saw this Poinsettia Wishes stamp set from Stampendous I was immediately in love. I loved the rustic or country look, so I made a red plaid monoprint background for it. I also wanted some shiny, so I used the Glitzy Adhesive technique by Fran at Stampendous.

Take a look at this technique video with Fran. It is a super way to make a one of a kind sparkly project!

With all the ideas from this video fresh on your mind, go grab all those Stampendous glitters you have and get to sticking them on a holiday project!

More of the design team are sharing their Christmas projects. Stop by and give them some comment love plus you can stop by the Stampendous blog for all sorts of crafty inspiration for the holidays.
