Our new challenge is up & running over at Sunny Challenges & Creations.
All you have to do is share something that you have created for the Christmas Season. Maybe you have created your own decorations, table settings, boxes, banner, scrapbook page, etc.
For my first sample, I decided to do a couple of scrapbook pages ready in time for Christmas Day. I am really happy with how they turned out. Today is Page 1 of the pages which will fit a 5" x 7" photo with a small white border.
Stamp Set - Morning Post Numbers
Ink - Crumb Cake
Cardstock - Whisper White, Textured Old Olive
DSP - Season of Style
Ribbon - 1" Stitched Edge Grosgrain - Cherry Cobbler
Washi Tape - Season of Style
Accessories - Snail Adhesive, Paper Piercing Mat & Tool
I cut 2 strips of DSP into 2" wide x 11" while the 3rd strip was 2" x 12" & adhered them to the RHS of the Old Olive Textured CS. I just love Textured CS for scrapbooking!
A 5 1/4" x 7 1/4" piece of Whisper White CS was adhered over the strips of DSP. I stamped "2013" onto a piece of Whisper White CS 1 1/2" x 5 1/2" using Crumb Cake Ink. Prior to adhering to the page, a "V" was cut from one end.
With my Paper Piercing Mat & Tool I pierced a double layer around the Whisper White Mat. A bow was tied from the Cherry Cobbler Ribbon & the adhered to the RHS of the year.
I then adhered a couple of strips of Washi Tape to the top LHS of the page. I also placed a piece of Whisper White, cut into a banner for a little bit of journaling.
All in all a very simple page, but one that represents Christmas!
We know everyone is busy at this time of the year, so we have extended this challenge out to the new year, which means you have lots of extra time to play along. We would love for you to link your creation or creations with us. All you have to do is post it on line & then link back to Mr Linky.
Until next time, Happy Stampin'!
