Good Morning I hope my US friends had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday. Are you all ready for a new challenge today?? Embellish it is our theme and the skys the limit! To show us your creations be sure to link to Tuesday Throwdown. Don't you love this fun image, just perfect for the Christmas projects!! Surprise Surprise it is called Three Gingerbread Men by Tina Akonom. Okay I know I should have done a gingerbread recipe with the cute gingerbread men BUT my girls loved to make snowflake cookies when they were young so this is it. :)
Our sponsor for this week is The Pixie Cottage. Michelle has rubber and digital stamps plus all the crafting supplies you need for all your creations. Be sure to go to Michelle's Scrapbooking & More to pick up some fun Christmas stamps and more. You will want to stop by to see my teammates great inspirational creations and leave them some love.
I am making paperbag recipes albums for my daughters. Filling them will recipes they grew up with. A fun keepsake plus the recipes in writing. Since embellish was the theme I used lots of snowflakes, button, stitching, layering, embossing and glitter. As you can see from the pic below I paper piece the cute little gingerbread men and the holly. Dimensional paint was used for the white "frosting" and buttons. The Merry Christmas is popped up with foam dots. I printed the recipe, stamped with misc. snowflake stamps and then ran thru the snowflake embossing folder and added the tab with the sewn on button. If you look closely you can see the Merry Christmas, holly berries snowflakes and cup are all glittered.

Supplies: Bazzill, Remembrance and SU papers, CB snowflake embossing folder, MS Snowflake punches, Spellbinders Label #10 , stickles & the good ole button box buttons.
