Now, enjoy this wonderful tutorial from Diane's workshop on how to update a home decor piece for any season!

"In this project from Dianes workshop we wanted to show you another piece that had been previously used in our 'By the Sea' collection transformed into a Christmas lamp! 


The paper is carefully removed with an exacto knife and placed on a sheet of scrap paper to be used as a pattern.


The green snowflake paper from Twas the Night Before Christmas is called 'Ho Ho Ho' and is cut out and adhered to the lampshade using the previous paper pattern.


A red border cut from the front of 'Ho Ho Ho' is used to enhance the look of the shade and make it pop!



Next, the paper on the little boxes that create the lamp is also carefully removed and saved on scrap paper as a pattern.Each box is then recovered. 
The top box wears 'Merry Mistletoe" with 'Happy Holly - Day' as the plaid. Each box used the plaid on the lids to pull the look together.
The second box is covered with 'Ho Ho Ho' as the base with a strip of stamps from the borders side of 'Ho Ho Ho'. 
The third box on the bottom repeats the 'Merry Mistletoe' paper and the base of the lamp is finished off with 'Ho Ho Ho'.
So, once again we show you how you can cover and recover your favorite decor pieces as often as you like!"
Before we let you go, we can't leave you without some inspiration from our Design Team. You will love the rich colors and sentiments of this beautiful card by Ginny using Typography. Amazing!
