The stamp set that I am featuring from the Holiday Mini is Serene Snowflakes item#115438.
My first project that I am sharing is a card!
The base is Sahara Sand, then Soft Suede, next is some of the yummy New Designer Series Paper Christmas Cocoa Specialty. I took the cutter kit and using the distressing tool I roughed up the edges. I stamped 3 snowflakes in Soft Suede and added a pearl from the Pretties kit in the center snowflake. I wrapped some Kraft Taffeta Ribbon around and added some more pearls. In the bottom right hand corner I used the saying from Four the Holidays (another Holiday Mini stamp set) I inked it in VersaMark and then in Soft Suede and stamped one the DSP. Next I poured clear embossing powder over it and heat set it. Viola one easy but elegant card done!

For my second project I created this cute little Purse Scrapbook! I used the Big Shot along with my Top Note die for the top. I stamped the snowflakes in Soft Suede Classic Ink on Soft Suede. I made my little medallion by stamping a snowflake in Soft Suede on Sahara Sand Card stock, I punched it out and layered it on Soft Suede, and Sahara Sand.
Inside view I flipped over the 1/2 polka-dot Soft Suede ribbon and used the back side with out the dots.

My 3rd project was a scrapbook page of my husband and I and our dog gizmo! My base was Sahara Sand I sponged Soft Suede ink around the edges. Then I took a piece of Soft Suede Textured card stock and stamped my snowflakes in Soft Suede randomly all over. I took a piece of DSP Christmas Cocoa Specialty paper and sponged the edges with Soft Suede and placed it in the center. I added the lattice cut out and set a pearl from the Pretties kit in the center of each. On my photo mat I sponged Soft Suede on the Sahara Sand card stock, then the Soft Suede I stamped the snowflakes around the edges. My journal piece is Sahara Sand, in the background I stamped the Snowflakes in Sahara Sand to give it that tone on tone effect. I sponged the edges with Soft Suede, placed it on dimensionals and added the pretties pin to it.
