The Winter Twilight Collection is perfect for decorating your planners and embellishment your journals and memory-keeping layouts, but it also makes great decorations for your home and the gifts you might be giving this season! Our Creative Team is sharing how they decked their halls (and gifts!) with Cocoa Daisy this season.
“This month I made a holiday side table decoration using one of the Winter Twilight Day Planner Dashboards. I wanted my decoration to be used not only for Christmas but also for the whole winter. So I created this winter wonderland scene with a little touch of Christmas.
Here is the final look after I put it in the frame. I know I will enjoy looking at this festive wintery theme all season long.”
In a season of gift-giving, Carole is always looking for ways to personalize gifts.
“An easy way I found to do that is with elements from the Winter Twilight Collection. Using papers from the Winter Twilight Modern Memory Keeping Kit, I was able to create some tags by cutting them down and adding a simple hole punch to spruce up the presents. I knew I had to use the snowflake sticker die-cut that says, “ Winter Walks and Fuzzy Socks” on the cute snowman 3×4 card for a fuzzy sock gift. For my “ribbon” I just used some recycled jersey material I have on hand.
To start I made a Washi ribbon by sticking two pieces of Washi together (sticky sides together) then cut the strip of Washi into 5 long pieces – I cut on each side of the silver foiling lines. I then chose 10 of the chipboard star stickers, some with sentiments and some pattered – Making sure I had 2 of each size to stick together, with the Washi ribbon stuck inside.
I made another Washi ribbon and made it into a bow, then tied the 5 dangle stars at different lengths to the Washi bow.
Each month I frame my favorite Dashboard from the Day Planner Dashboards Kit to display on my desk. I decided to add a little decoration to the frame until we get our Christmas Tree.
Our Juniper Conifer Tree out in the front yard also needed a little sprucing up, don’t you think?”
