More Christmas

Here is my version of the tree on the cover of the Holiday From the Heart Gift Guide.    

This is a bit time consuming but I think I will try another.  I learned that the hot glue gun and I are NOT friends...I burnt myself a few times:(  I used the Sparkle & Shine paper pack and the Santa Claus Stamp set  The snowflakes were cut the Cricut using Silver Glitter paper.  If you would like to try making one yourself here is a video link from obsessedwithscrapbooking with all the details!!

Here are some fun fast cards I made.

I used the Glory to God Stamp set and the Frosted paper pack.  These are fast and great for mass producing.  

Thanks for hopping by!  Now go and CREATE:)

When you place an order of $100 or more (retail price) between October 15 and December 31 from the Holidays from the Heart Gift Guide and/or the Autumn/Winter 2013 Idea Book, you qualify for one free star item from the Holidays from the Heart Gift Guide. You'll love the sparkle, the ease, and the savings! Receive one free "star" item for each $100 in your order.

There are more that 20 of us Close to My Heart consultants that are taking part in this hop show so off the new products.  So grab some coffee and hop along.  If you came here from Michelle Johns's Blog you are on the right track.

Here is what I made using some of the new products...

I fell in love with the Sparkle & Shine Paper Pack...It is perfect for the holidays, but is also great for non holiday use too as I have shown with my Happy Birthday Card.   

The Santa was stamped with black archival ink and colored with our alcohol ink markers.  For the hat I stamped with ruby ink and cut it out and glued to the black hat.

I used the following products:

X7176B Sparkle & Shine Paper Pack
Z1860 Sparkle & Shine Assortment
C1567 Santa Claus Stamp Set
B1438 Banner Wishes Stamp Set
