Whether it’s the tropical beach vacation of your dreams or a mini staycation, we all need a little getaway every once-in-a-while, even at Christmastime. With our newest Deck the Palms collection, we have cards and scrapbook layouts for you to create an island paradise of your own during your very next crafting session!
We have not one but TWO exclusive scrapbooking Deck the Palms workshops to share with you! Like a lot of our scrapbooking workshops, both workshops make one single page and three two-page coordinating 12″ x 12″ scrapbook layouts. The difference between them is that one is in a general tropical theme and the other is a tropical Christmas theme. The uniqueness about these workshops is that the pages between them are almost identical in design, only differing in which side of the pattern paper and embellishments you use. (Even the instruction guide is the same! Download the scrapbooking workshop guide, here.)
You cannot create both themes with the same workshop kit, so let’s make sure we get that straight. If you’d like to create the tropical Christmas pages, you will need the Deck the Palms—Christmas Scrapbooking Workshop Kit, which includes the Deck the Palms—Christmas Stamp + Thin Cuts, stickers, and acrylic shapes. If you’re wanting to make the tropical pages, without the Christmas, you will need the Deck the Palms—Tropical Scrapbooking Workshop Kit, which includes the Deck the Palms—Tropical Stamp + Thin Cuts, stickers, and acrylic shapes. (Get a close look by clicking on the links above and in the images below.)
(Both sticker sheets have glossy UV-coated accents!)
All of these embellishments are available on their own or as part of their corresponding scrapbooking workshop, except for the tropical sticker sheet. This sticker sheet is only available for purchase with the Deck the Palms Paper Packet + Sticker Sheet. The paper packet patterned papers are also part of both Deck the Palms scrapbooking workshops. If you are not familiar with Close To My Heart pattern papers, they are each 12″ x 12″ plus an additional ½” accent paper along the top of each (we call those “zip strips”), and they all have double-sided designs, meaning there’s one design on one side and a different design on the reverse side of each sheet of patterned paper.
Our Deck the Palms Paper Packet is no different! One side of the pattern papers are tropical themed, and the reverse are tropical Christmas themed with beautiful accent zip strips, providing even more patterns to craft with!
Also part of this collection, and included in part in all three workshop kits, is the specially designed coordinating Deck the Palms cardstock. Each sheet has one of our exclusive colors in its usual cardstock texture on one side and on the reverse side we’ve added gorgeous UV-coated patterns to fit the collection’s theme! (Stock up on these fast because they will not last long!)
Along with the two scrapbooking workshop kits, we also have a tropical themed cardmaking workshop kit! The Deck the Palms—Christmas cardmaking workshop makes18 standard size cards, three each of six different designs! (Download the cardmaking workshop guide, here.)
This is only part of the holiday fun we have in store with this collection, so make sure to visit our website to see all the Deck the Palms products available and also join us as we make all of the artwork from these workshops on our Facebook page! We will be making all the workshop cards on December 3 at 2 p.m., MT, and then all the workshop scrapbook layouts (both themes!) on December 9 at 2 p.m., MT.
