Hi Stampers. Two weeks ago I shared a FALL themed sampler that I made. (See that post HERE) While I was in the mood to do samplers, I did several. Today I am showing you the two Chritmas themed ones I made. All the measurements are the same, I just used different papers, ink colors and stamps.
These frames are 8″ x 8″ and can be purchased on Amazon with my affiliate link HERE. The background for both of these are glimmer paper. Most of my squares are 2″ x 2″ colored cardstock with 1-3/4″ x 1-3/4″ layer over those. I used Whisper White CS to stamp onto. There are 1/4″ border between squares. One of the blocks are rectangles – 2″ x 4-1/4″. The 4-1/4″ was made by adding the 2″ plus 2″ plus the 1/4″ gap.
This sampler is a little of everything Christmas – I’ve tried to list all the supplies below. It has a Christmas feel to it complete with Santa And an Elf and a few Christmas trees.
This sampler used mostly the Snowman Season Bundle and Let it Snow DSP, with a few extras thrown in. I found that the Snow Globe Dies worked perfectly for my 2″ squares.
Figuring out the layout took a little bit of math. I started with 2″ x 2″ blocks. Since i wanted 1/4″ borders, I knew I could get three 2″ blocks each way. The three 2″ blocks added to 6″. The gap between blocks were two 1/4″ gaps. Which gave me 6-1/2″. Eight inches minus 6-1/2″ left me with an extra 1-1/2″ – putting half on either side gave me 3/4″ each side. The diagram may help explain what I am trying to say here.
I used the green squares as placeholders while I arranged the four corner squares. Then I centered the other squares between the corners. After all my squares were attached I removed the green placeholder squares.
