Oh little tree...

Oh little tree…oh little sparkle stamp! 

I love this little tree stamp – and at just $4 it is a very useful addition to my Christmas stamp collection!

I love the various artbooking pages in the Artbooking Cartridge and this swirly curly one is no different. I added a splash of glitter here having discovered the ease of a generous dose of Mod Podge and a sprinkle of glitter. If you do this do it on baking paper for easy return of excess to the bottle and binning the rest.

Overlays….oh my! I love the Artbooking overlays and this was cut quickly and easily with Artbooking. As a bonus I have the negative shapes ready to put on other projects! The reindeer is also in Artbooking – a touch of glitter and a sparkle red nose added a finishing touch.

Baubles and the circle shape from the halloween section of the Artbooking cartridge comes to life for Christmas

Baubles and the circle shape from the Halloween section of the Artbooking cartridge comes to life for Christmas. All I had to do was think outside Halloween – lollies go with Christmas and the round shape of the page suited the bauble. 

Ho Ho Ho it is so hot where I am I would be hoping for snow!

It is by now Christmas eve and in the land downunder we are likely to be cooling off in a pool in my region! It may be over 40 Celsius here! The kids are excited with the traditional image of Santa and his Reindeer, and we can only dream of cool snow. Ho Ho Ho we have our Christmas cheer on at least! The Ho Ho Ho stamp is another of those cute little $4 ones that is essential to my little collection.

December 25 cut right from the Artbooking Cartridge!

This page is cut at recommended settings in Artbooking. The Yo Yo is 2  2×12 inch strips accordion folded at 1/4 inch. Onto these I have popped a sparkly snowflake and finally the 25 stamp. I used white behind ‘December’ to help it pop out!

I have enjoyed doing this project and look forward to taking a page off  the stand as each day goes by and journaling or adding a photo each day.
