We LOVE these altered 'Twas the Night Before Christmas "JOY" letters from Annette. The perfect addition to your holiday decor! Enjoy her tutorial below as well.

"Each year I look forward to adding to my holiday home decor with a new handmade item. This year, I created a simple project using inexpensive paper mache letters from the craft store along with beautiful Twas The Night Before Christmas collection and Core-dinations cardstock. The poinsettia die makes the most realistic flower, I just had to share with you how it was made. Once it’s added to the word JOY, it will make a festive addition to any mantel, shelf or window sill for the holidays. " ~Annette

Next, we have this stunning canvas by Keri. She really creates an amazing piece with Core'dinations and Graphic 45!

"When I heard we were doing a blog hop with Core’dinations, I knew exactly what I wanted to do. I loved the idea of mixing as many colors of Core’dinations Signature G45 cardstock with as many patterns as I could to form a background for a mixed media piece. This piece measures 8x10 and features images from G45’s “Typography” collection, along with lots of fun texture, paints and stamped images. I loved the saying “Art washes from the soul the dust of everyday life.” because I think it is so true. Life can get hard and busy and sometimes just plain unfun, but when we take time to express ourselves through art, we can...even if just for a short time...be free of all those burdens and pour our hearts onto a page or canvas."~Keri

Now, enjoy these ATCs from Romy. What beautiful little canvases. We adore these!

 "I love making cards, but sometimes they take me quite some time to make. That’s why I am a huge fan of the Staples ATC tags. They are smaller than cards, but can still be used as a small gift card to go with a present. I usually don’t decorate the backside of the ATC tags, but thought it might be nice to add a bit of colour to their backsides as well. Therefore, I took out some beautiful Core’dinations cardstock and inked and teared them to create a simple yet nice backside that I can write a short sentiment on."~Romy

Great projects today! I am inspired by all the work that went into them, and hope I can find some time this weekend to work on projects of my own!

I loved the J O Y letters and the way she did them. These home decor items are lovely and inspire me to make them. Love G45 papers.

Fabulous, as always. Such beautiful papers. They go so well worth the coordinations cardstock. Peace x

I love the JOY design; and I saw these letters at Hobby Lobby yesterday and was wondering what I could do with them; and now seeing this I will have to go back and get the letters. Also, I use the word JOY in my kitchen, it reminds me of "Joy in the Morning" when I make my coffee and the Lord gives me peace all day long. Have a wonderful Chirstmas to all of you at Graphic45.

I have a set of JOY letters I've never altered-this is just perfect. Thank you as always for such beautiful papers and inspiration. Hope you and yours have a safe and blessed Christmas!
