Holiday CreateAthon Day 4

By November 4, 2019 November 5th, 2019 Holiday CreateAthon


The holiday season is right around the corner and the team at Ink to Paper is excited to create and share projects. Fall is the season of gratitude, which leads right into the Christmas season of giving. We wanted to dedicate the month of November to a marathon of creative inspiration using our holiday themed stamps and dies. Crafting during the holiday season is very popular, and our collection of stamps and dies will surely inspire you to create along with us throughout the month.

Get ready to learn some fun facts about the company, designers, and of course amazing new ways to create cards, gift tags, and more!


Let’s take a closer look at the fall themed product collections we are featuring for today’s CreateAthon! Laurie Schmidlin and Melissa Phillips have shared amazing cards to celebrate autumn.

It’s A Sign: Love & Kindness Stamps + Dies

Simply Sweet: Blessed Stamps  + Dies



“Often times I find myself using the same basic layouts over and over even though I spend (or waste) a lot of time trying to come up with something new and different.  I have found that most of the time a simple layout is best and not only lets the images shine but better but saves a lot of time as well!  Sometimes, simple really is best!  This particular layout is one of my go-to ones.  You can change up the feel of it by adding different background elements such as patterned paper and/or ribbon like I did here.”




“Sometimes when I feel like my card is lacking personality and just doesn’t feel complete, felt is the answer.  The flower dies in the It’s A Sign: Love & Kindness collection are the perfect size for layering and creating dimension and texture and add a perfect finishing touch.”




During Holiday CreateAthon, we are offering a weekly $100 Ink to Paper Gift Certificate!
