The Paper Issues team is sharing their favorite 16 projects of 2016. I've shared a lot of cards this year, but I chose to feature my layouts. Be sure to stop by the Paper Issues blog today to see the other team members' collages. There's plenty of beautiful inspiration to be found!

Card Share: City Sidewalks (Carta Bella Christmas Delivery)

I love the fresh, clean design of this card. The carol on the tag makes me want to sing (although maybe I'm better off playing Christmas music since my singing voice isn't great, LOL).

Just like with yesterday's card, this one was made with Carta Bella Christmas Delivery and a great acrylic word from Color Cast Designs

Card Share: All Wrapped Up (Carta Bella Special Delivery)

Today's Christmas card share is brought to you by Carta Bella Christmas Delivery. I can't tell you how many cards I put together with a 6x6 paper pad, chipboard and die cuts. It's really a fun collection!

I'll be back tomorrow to show you one more holiday card...See you then!

Card Share: Wish (Fancy Pants Wish Season)

I dug into last year's stash to make some Christmas cards. This one features Fancy Pants Wish Season. I love the color combo — somewhat traditional but with surprising pops of color.

How are you doing with your Christmas cards? Are you making them this year? Are you sending them this year? :)

Take 5 with Paper Issues: Milk and Cookies (Fancy Pants Wish Season)

It's time for December's Take 5 challenge at Paper Issues. Here's how it works...each month there's a list of items to use as inspiration. Pick 5 of the items from the list and create a paper crafting project (card, layout, off the page, pocket page, etc.) You can add other items and use your own ideas, but you must use at least 5 items from the list.

Here's the list for this month

Link your finished project to the Take 5 Challenge album in the Paper Issues {Friends & Fans} Facebook group by December 31st to be in the running for a gift certificate to the Paper Issues store.

I love this challenge so much and look forward to it every month. In case you're wondering, I used
 #2 white, #4 snowflake, #6 wood grain, #10 ink, #13 stickers. :)
