Jenni Bowlin Christmas 2011


















{Reported by Paula Gilarde}



Jenni Bowlin released a mini line for Christmas 2011 consisting of five double-sided, 12x12 themed papers. The huge thing (for me) about this line is that they are cardstock weight papers. I love that! Another bonus about these papers is that coordinate with older lines and embellishments. A new feature of this mini line is the accessory sheet - one side is patterned paper and the other a combination of vintage Christmas tags and strips of patterned paper. The card makers or mini-patterned paper lovers will not be disappointed - each of the 6 paper patterns are included in one sheet of 12x12 paper (in 4 inch squares).


What I liked:
There's a lot to like about this mini collection. I love the fact that they coordinate with older Jenni papers. The heavier-weight cardstock is something I have been wishing for, and I've very taken with the adorable Santa and other vintage images on the accessory sheet. It was all very easy to use, even for this simple, non-vintage scrapper!

What I didn't like:
I generally have a tough time with larger scale patterns - the mini sheets are so helpful here. My only other gripe is that I'd like to have more!

What I made:
In my layout, I used the larger holly stripe paper as embellishment, cutting out some holly sprigs.


I incorporated some older patterned paper into this layout also - it all works together so easily.
Next I made some boxes to hold gift cards - the heavier-weight cardstock was particularly helpful here.

Finally I made a card using the mini-pattern sheet (carol list), the accessory sheet (Season's Greetings) and bits of patterned papers:

Cute layout...I love Jenni Bowlin products...her die-cuts are the best. Your card and gift boxes are adorable. I really like that sheet of Christmas carols...a little bit different than a sheet of music.
