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!
