I made some Christmas/winter holiday paper to share with you guys. They are 10 inch x 10 inch, 300 dpi high resolution jpgs that you can use in any of your holiday projects. Just open them in your program like a normal jpg (they are not Photoshop patterns like my previous Christmas paper). These all have textures applied (many are from Princess of Shadows at Deviantart ) so they look distressed. I will have a mini CoffeeShop tutorial on making distressed papers coming out soon!
BTW, these make great textures in your photos. I have been playing with the blue snowflake one over some of my color and B&W photos, and in the light-blending modes (soft light and overlay for example) they look amazing! Just put them on top of your image and adjust blending modes and opacity to taste. If you want to change the colors of these patterns, one way is to use hue/saturation, click colorize, and then move your hue and saturation slider to taste. For some information on using textures in your own images (and removing them from skin and other areas), please see HERE .
