Christmas Printers Tray

Hey Stampers !!

My Printer's Tray posts seem to be pretty popular. If you haven't seen them, this is my Hallowe'en one and here is my Fall version. I LOVE making these things! So, of course, we all knew a Christmas one was going to make an appearance !! I tried to make all of the bits and pieces of this one REALLY Christmas. As in, no snowmen (gasp!) or snowflakes (say it ain't so!!). My reasons being, I will be doing a Winter one for January-March, so I want to save all the snowy goodness until then LOL. So, without further adieu, here is my Christmas Printer's Tray !!


What do you think !?! The hardest thing about this tray was deciding which stamp sets "made the cut" and which didn't !! I used a bunch of different colors and styles here as well. And some retired gems that I still LOVE (*cough*Dasher*cough*). I really love how it turned out, don't you !! I am going to do a semi-recipe at the end of the post, mostly saying which stamps and DSP I used, instead of the endless line of punches, cardstock and ink colors. If you have any questions about any of the products that I used though please don't hesitate to ask !!

Thanks a lot for dropping by today and Happy Stamping !!

  1. Thanks for posting this. I picked up a printer's tray after you posted your fall version, but I still haven't started playing with it. As soon as I am no longer traveling every weekend, I am hoping to start putting a Christmas tray together.

    1. My pleasure !! They are a smidge smaller than 2-3/4" wide by 3-3/4" high. Thats the size of the hole, but they are snug so I trim off about 1/16" off the width and height. Hope that helps !! Thanks !!
