25 Ideas of Christmas from Fran

One of my favorite contributors to our ScrapperChallenge group on Yahoogroups is Fran. She has been with us a while now and always pitches right in to post ideas, sketches and helpful information. For the holiday season, Fran volunteered to add a gift idea each day for 25 days to the group. Here is a summary of the fabulous ideas she has gathered so far! Fran and I both hope it inspires you to use your stash and get creative in the gifts you give. Handmade is truly a gift of the heart. And let's give a big shout out to Fran for sharing these with us!! :) Please also be sure to thank the original artists at their websites for sharing the ideas and tutorials too!
