When I first got the pack, I was a little disappointed with the patterns in it. They seemed so busy that I wasn't sure how to play with them. I realized quickly that they would look good as a background on a card but also as a splash of color in a scrapbooking project.
The card I made has already been on my blog but it shows how the DSP packs work as a background piece.
The tag was also easy - it was just a matter of cutting out the snowflakes to layer them in a way I liked with the scraps I had from the various projects.
But what to do for the 3D project? Sitting on my desk was an exploding scrapbook our little crafting club did this summer for Father's Day and I realized that it could be resized to utilize the papers from the print pack. Where most of my exploding scrapbook boxes usually measure 9 x 9 or 12 x 12, this one is 7 1/2 x 7 1/2 so each square is only 2 1/2 inches wide. That let me use the pieces from the DSP pack to add some color and some snowflakes to this project. The saying from Christmas Messages of Oh What Fun reminded me of watching Callie play in the snow last winter and how great those photos would be in a home décor.
These boxes are great and it shows how you can easily use your scraps in a fun way. I've made these for baby showers, Christmas, special events, etc. With Stampin' Up!'s Simply Scored Tool and plates, these boxes come together quickly and easily! I think those coming to my camp will really enjoy this project.
