Happiest Holiday Collection Day One: Simple Joys

Good morning and welcome to day one of Power Poppy's Happiest Holiday Collection release. Once again Marcy has created magic with her pen and paper for us and you will not want to miss anything. Did you see the new Instant Garden release yesterday to kick off the sneak peeks? It is called Chickadee in Barberry and super cute with a chubby little bird. Excited to print that and start to color myself.  ;-)  After you hop along today and check out our Simple Joys creations you can go back and purchase and print the new digi to play with today. hee hee  Okay onto the first of our Happiest Holiday sneak peek with Simple Joys



Marcy has some inspiration behind this new one over on the Power Poppy Blog. Here is a little bit about the new set for you: Sometimes it’s the simplest trimmings that make for the merriest holiday touches. I envision grabbing the garden shears and stepping out the front door to clip any greenery within walking distance, picking up pinecones and holly, and placing it all in a gathering basket. Berry-studded branches are snipped and plunked into a vintage watering can, dressed with a festive baubles. I can see this scene next to the front door welcoming guests, or as a lively centerpiece, so wouldn't it make a fun image on a holiday card? Finally, a round ornament on a pine branch is ready to be stamped with any of the five sentiments that fit perfectly inside.


This set Simple Joys is awesome I tell you. I actually have a piece of paper with a few ideas jotted down on future creations. Just need the time to create them. My first one is using the basket of goodies that is stamped on white cardstock and then die cut with an ODBD Vintage die. Colored with several Copic markers and added some sparkle to the green sprigs. My designer paper is from the My Minds Eye Cozy Christmas paper pad and then die cut a matching poinsettia with the sparkly paper. A little faux stitching around the edges and finished it off with a few pearls and a flourished green sprig. Voila!
