If your wondering why the mess is on display, head over to Julia's blog and read all the details on how you can play along.
so, these are tuesday night after work views under the artificial lights ( again ) I have not cleaned up all the way from all the last minute booth things I made but, I had killed some time in a craft store ( 80 miles from my house ) on tuesday waiting for Costco to finish printing photos...
what followed me home was some red & gray fancy pants corrugated papers ( 5 for a dollar GASP) and some brown, ( have not cut into that yet) and this MME red gingham papers... the deer and stocking were already made and just waiting to be used.
Just some different angles. all of these desk shots were taken with my cell phone.
the deer is an Sizzix die cut, I did rub some vintage photo distress ink onto this. the sentiment is an Unity Stamps one.
The stocking (SU) is heat embossed with SU white on Kraft and the Joy is from Stampendous, and that wood stamp... that is from Gina K designs and stamped on the inside of this one. the lace is vintage.
This one the hearts are die cut with the primitive Sizzix die from some recollections paper I had sprayed with Gold Heidi Swapp color shine last week. the edges were lined with a krylon paint pen. but, the Cool thing on this is the dymo label LOVE sentiment... mine disappeared over a year ago and I have not found it yet. ( and since I kept it in a bucked on the table with deco scissors its kinda a Hmmm, thing) ( makes me wonder if I lent it to someone and then forgot ) So, the part that makes that cool is... I have been searching for a new one for some time now and am always told they don't make it anymore... they have them on Amazon if you need one. This one is only 5 1/2" square in real life.
