December Anything Goes Challenge by Amanda

Reader Amanda submitted this project for the December Anything Goes Challenge.  She said:


I have a project to share for the December Anything Goes challenge. I have had these frames for a few years. They were a freebie from Cross Stitch Crazy magazine and I haven’t got around to stitching the inserts yet.
I finally decided to use patterned paper instead of cross stitch. I used scraps from the Peppermint Twist collection from We R Memory Keepers for the stocking and tree, with a piece of velvety paper for the stocking cuff. The star is cut from a Papermania paper from a Christmas mini book kit.

I hope that you like them. You can see more of my crafting at
