Happy, happy Thursday my peeps and a Happy Thanksgiving to my lovely friends south of the border! Enjoy your turkey day and if you are not of the faint of heart….enjoy shopping on Black Friday :) I am certainly not hardy enough to go out and battle the crowds….plus there are a lot of internet sales now…..why not shop in your pyjamas in the comfort of home?!
Speaking of which…….
Before I share my project today, I just want to give a shout out to all my dear friends at the Royal Vic. It was so much fun to re-connect with you all and catch up on all your news. We haven’t aged a bit but funnily enough, our kids sure seem to have! HaHa!
Happy Retirement Mary! Now you will finally have time to teach me how to make homemade pasta and pizzelles!
Now back to paper-crafting :)
Whiff of Joy is releasing a few more awesome images in digital form for December! Loving that they are digital because there is no wait on shipping and you can get straight to playing!
Of course, this image was a must-have for my 2013 December Daily album! Cute little Maya skating with a penguin? Yes please!
After coloring my image, I used a circle spellbinders die to cut it out and then whilst still in the die, I sponged the edges lightly with Tumbled glass distress ink. The paper is from last year’s Winter Park line from Echo Park. I keep gravitating to these left over sheets instead of using all the brand new papers I bought recently. Go figure.
I cut a piece of Soft Sky cardstock from Stampin’Up to size at 6x8”. I then adhered my 6x6” patterned paper onto the center of the page. I cut thin bands of glitter paper to lay over the top and bottom edges of the patterned paper. I find this gives it a more finished look! For another layer, I added tiny pearl adhesives. Love, love the way this looks.
The amazing snowflakes are from a brand new die-light. I used some waxed paper between the die and the cardstock to make it cut cleanly and pop right of the die with no fuss. Not a big fan of fuss! I then cut it up into 4 sections so that it surrounds my image!
I adding some skates die-cut from more glitter paper and then added some pearls and decorative brads before calling this page…DONE!
Here are a few product links for you. The image will be available on December 2nd.
Thanks for stopping by. I will be sharing more sneak peeks and fun Christmas designs in the next days.
