I love Christmas. But I also really love the few weeks after Christmas - the time when things seem to slow down a bit, I get to catch my breath and get myself all set up and ready for the year ahead. Without any major holidays coming quickly, I always find this is a great time to clean up my crafty space and stock up on some of my essentials - product like Doodlebug's Petite Prints collections and project bases for cards and treat containers! So today, I thought I would feature this great product and show you one of my tricks to staying on top of projects for the year to come!  
So, the great thing about the Petite Prints collection (besides all the great patterns) is that all of the colours coordinate with the themed Doodlebug collections. So, I find that this product makes great bases for cards and treat containers like pillow boxes that I can then embellish depending on the season. While I am making one of these generic bases, I always cut out a few and just leave them unfinished and ready to fold as the year goes one. And since the Petite Prints are double sided you get two for one!
For today's project, I went ahead and just decorated them up with some some of my favourite embellishments - DoodleTwine, Jewels and Mini Paper Clips. But later in the year, I may grab one or two and decorate them up with a Valentine's collection or a birthday- themed collection. The base is ready to go and I just get to have fun decorating!  
 Although I have to say - they are pretty darn cute this way too!

So grab some of your essentials and get yourself all ready for the year ahead - and maybe decorate up a few to give out some treats in January too! heaven knows we could sure use it!  Thanks for stopping by!
