December-A Temporary Change of Pace

We are going to change things up for December a bit in order to allow our Design Team (and ourselves) some time to enjoy the holiday season.  Rather than choosing an Inspiration Kit and linking up tutorials, challenges, and blog hops, we are going to give you a variety of interesting topics to read about during the month of December!

Each of our Master Forgers choose a couple of different days in to create a December-themed blog post for you to enjoy.  But don't worry, you won't entirely miss out on your Counterfeit Kit this month, one of the Master Forgers just happens to be challenging you with an Inspiration Kit to counterfeit!  There are some other great topics this month too, everything from December Daily information, to photography tips, to gifts, ornaments, cards, layouts, and gift wrap ideas...there is a little of everything! 

We hope you enjoy all of the interesting topics that the Master Forgers have decided to share with you.  There is a Mr. Linky (here) for you to share any of your December inspired creations found here.  Happy December!
