letters for santa + one day only friday freebie

Oh boy! Do we have a fun day in store for you today!

I think we shall start with the Friday Freebie!

In the spirit of the Christmas decor and gift-giving week we’ve had,
this holiday subway art will be
available as a Friday Freebie for ONE DAY ONLY!

So be sure to tell everyone you know that if they want it . . . they better get it today!

You can still get it after today for the usual $1.
But today you can spend that dollar on your Dr. Pepper. :)

[Comes in an 8×10 PNG as well as SVG/STUDIO/DXF/AIv8]

This ‘Friday Freebie’ is over. Please use the Store to purchase this for $1.

This one has a red version along with the black. The red was just so purdy and festive!
And just how fun would this be to add to your December Daily project??? Or for a Christmas gift? Hello!

And in the midst of all the Christmas hallabalu,
I thought it might be a nice surprise to make a Hanukkah version too!

[Comes in an 8×10 PNG as well as SVG/STUDIO/DXF/AIv8]

I had a wonderful reader help me with this since I’m not too familiar with the holiday.
I hope I’ve done it justice. :)

And since I was making a red version for Christmas, I just had to do a blue version for Hanukkah.

This ‘Friday Freebie’ is over. Please use the Store to purchase this for $1.


And now for some holiday goodness from the uber-talented Nichol Magouirk!

[ Shapes | On The Edge: notebook edge / Signed.Sealed.Delivered: envelope with date+circle insets /
This+That Christmas: ‘dear santa’ ]

Two words: a.dore.

Love how she incorporated her stampage (yeah, it’s a word)  that she’s known for.
The stamping on the vellum behind the year inset? Ya. Like that . . . a lot.
Makes it look like she bought the little ensemble just  like that. Love it.

Love the idea of keeping this forever. Put it in your December Daily. Fabulous.

Here’s what Nichol has to say:

My kids write letters to Santa every year and I always keep a copy of their letters to include in either are family albums or my December Daily Album.

This year I thought it would be fun to create a fun decorative envelope to store their letters. I love that you can customize the envelopes in the Signed. Sealed. Delivered kit by adding “cut-outs”. I used a bit of vellum behind the date (2011) on my envelope and then added some stamping with white ink for an elegant feel. I also used the On the Edge kit to give my “letter” a notebook edge, one of my favorite techniques.

I am really digging the red/cream/tan color combo for holiday this year. It gives that vintagey feel to Christmas projects that is timeless.

    Please try again later.’

  19. Bev November 11, 2011 at 1:26 pm

  37. Linda Trace November 12, 2011 at 2:26 am

    Hi Kerry!
    I can’t get the christmas one to work either unfortunately, but thanks so much for getting into the spirit of giving so early :)

    As for Nichols work—well…*sigh* what is there to say?! Gorgeousness as always.

    • Kerri November 12, 2011 at 5:55 am

      Sorry guys! I don’t know if it was the high volume of people trying to download it all at once or what. I did just go upload it again and we’ll see if that fixes anything too. I’m also going to leave it up for one more day since there were problems for people.

      It was crazy busy yesterday, that’s for sure!! :)

  38. phyllis November 12, 2011 at 5:19 am

    Thank you so much Kerri. I love Subway Art but am never sure quite how to go about designing it. This certainly solves my dilemma for a Christmas one. Thanks again.
