Sorry for the long delay between posts. I have had problems with my PC due to a virus that disabled my virus protection and after that created havoc and shut down nearly every program I had installed. I am happy to say that we are now virus-free and back to our usual programming :-).
I wanted to share with you a christmas mobile inspired by the lovely Andrea Lowcock in my Inky Fingers team and the design on page 18 of the current Spring Mini Catalogue. When I saw Andrea’s on her blog I had to make one for myself (she even sent me one of her class kits so I could create my own, what a sweetie………thanks Andrea!).
The mobile is made from On Board “Trimmings” chip board which you can use to create ornaments, home decor, tree trimmings and keepsakes by decorating the pieces with stamps and Designer Series Paper and other embellishments. I loved Andrea’s idea of using the hatpin so I grabbed one of them from my Pretties Kit and pushed it through the Cocoa velvet ribbon from my “Theatre” Ribbon Originals.
These gorgeous “Holiday Harmony” papers and the “Trimmings” Chip board are available only until the end of November so be sure to order yours now and get started on creating some Christmas gifts and decorating your home with hand made ornaments that you and your family will treasure for many years to come!
To create the mobile above I used the following products (all available for purchase through me from Stampin’ Up!):
Stamps: Season Of Joy (p22 Mini Catalogue),Occasional Greetings
Ink : Purely Pomegranate, Always Artichoke and Certainly Celery Stampin’ Write Markers
Paper: Holiday Harmony Double Sided Paper and Purely Pomegranate card stock
Accessories : Trimmings On Board chip board, Two Way Glue Pen, Sanding Block, 2mm Hand Held Punch, Linen Thread, Pretties Kit, Mini Glue Dots.
