Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop...Home Decor

SDBH Banner

I am a slow crafter.  Believe me I can take a long time making even the simplest of projects.  I am also a master procrastinator which coupled with being slow well, it is just not a good combination.  I am working on overcoming my issue with procrastination but you know the joke I will get to it sometime later.  

This week has been extra busy and I realized  I had just a short time period to make my home decor project for this hop.  What to do?  I found this frame in my stash and decided to make another sampler.  However, I didn't have the time to create little pieces of stamped goodness for each little space.  What to do?!  

Night Before Christmas Memories & More Card pack to the rescue!!  


The middle row of images and the "Tis the Season" are all Memories & More cards cut down to fit the frame.  I added a few rhinestones, a star, and a little bit of glitter but otherwise they are straight out of the box.

The top right is a card front from the Night Before Christmas Memories & More Cards & envelopes.  I added the Santa's sleigh die which was cut from the Jolly Season dies.  I painted on some Wink of Stella so there is a little shine on the sleigh and reindeers.

On the bottom left, I made a wreath using one of my favorite dies, All Around Wreath dies.  I cut 2 wreaths one in Mossy Meadow and the other in Old Olive and layered them.   The berries were created using Sparkle Glimmer paper with a little Cherry Cobbler ink daubed over it.  The ribbon is the beautiful Cherry Cobbler Diagonal Stripe ribbon.   The star paper is from the Night Before Christmas 6" x 6" DSP.  

On the bottom right I cut the words using the Merry Christmas dies in Sparkle Glimmer paper.  The background paper is also from the Night Before Christmas 6" x 6" DSP.

I also sprinkled snowflakes cut from Sparkle Glimmer paper using the Seasonal Layers and the Christmas Layers dies   around the frame.

I am now a believer in the Memories & More card packs.  It was so easy and quick, even for me to put this project together.  I look forward to making a bunch of cards using the rest of the cards and the card & envelope pack but you guessed it, I will get to that later.

Now it is time to  hop on over to see what the talented Carol Payne has created!
