I love what Craft-Room Challenge blog is
doing for their last challenge of the year;
your favorite creation from this past year.
My favorite make of the year was our
8th anniversary project at Paper Traders,
an altered book.
It was the first time I had altered a book
with a little niche inside and I was really
happy with the result.
Plus, the little keyhole opening on the front
cover of the book was perfect for the
theme of the story;
"The Secret Garden"
I also finished up my new Christmas gift tags
for our gifts this year.
I cut some ATC sized tags out of a manila folder for these.
I layer them first with some green ink spray.
Then I stamped in red some christmas sentiments
Put a light wash of gesso in the area that I was
going to stamp the snowman.
It's my fav snowman stamp from
Inkadinkadoo - Ornate Christmas
Finished with a little bit more gesso around the edges,
the circle reinforcement and some green and white
I always wrap our presents in brown kraft paper
and red yarn. Love the simplicity of it.
Alrighty, have a wonderful last week before Christmas.
Stop and enjoy the blessing of the Season of Advent.
