Christmas Layout-Cousins

      We Wish you a Merry Christmas, We Wish you a Merry Christmas! OK I know it is early but I have been filling orders for Hero Arts Christmas stamps left and right! LOL And I wanted to let you know that on July 25th I will be participating in a Christmas Blog Hop:)

 And the current challenge at The Paper Variety is to create a Christmas project. So to set the holiday mood here's my contribution to nice wintery thoughts in this blistering heat!


Paper: Echo Park Merry Christmas Collection, Tan and White Mulberry Paper
Paint: Brown

Bling: Red Stickles, Hero Arts Earth Accents, Red rhinestone from my stash
Ink: Colorbox Chestnut Roan

Stickers: Echo Park Merry Christmas (I added Glossy Accents to the letters to give an epoxy look-otherwise the letters got lost in the paper), Karen Foster Holiday Licence Plate, Candy Cane and Peppermint Stickers are from my stash I added Christmas Red Stickles.

Brads: Stash

Ribbon: From Michael's. I pleated the gold with glue dots and then attached it to the maroon ribbon with mini Glue Dots. I then added the Hero Arts Earth Accents.

All of the paper is stitched with cream thread.

I made the reindeer out of mulberry paper and cardstock.

Wishing you the Christmas Spirit throughout the year:)
