November PTI Blog Hop

November 2011 Blog Hop

Welcome everyone to the November Papertrey Blog Hop!  We are so thrilled to see you here!  First, the challenge...
November Blog Hop Inspiration
For this month's blog hop inspiration we've selected something perfect for the upcoming holidays.  Embrace the festive red and green color scheme or perhaps the gingham and toile patterns that are prominent.  The ice skates, evergreens and snowflakes used to adorn the banister could possibly be another source of inspiration.  We look forward to seeing all of your interpretations of this beautiful photo!

You can find the challenge here:
This is exactly what I needed to inspire me to do a project I've wanted to do since last year. I may tweak it a bit more but for now here are the results:

I had an old frame that I had painted last year but that was as far as I got. I did have some gingham ribbon on the frame but I didn't like how it looked and I've thought about adding snowflakes in white around the frame. I think I'll just look at it for a day or two.

Anyway, I started with Tim Holtz Tissue Tape and stuck it around the inner frame. Inked up some old "note" paper and stuck it on the inside with decoupage. Stuck on the red ribbon around the outer frame, adhered the tree and put bells on it for ornaments(inspiration for this came  in my the photo and luckily I found a tree
in my crafty Christmas stuff. I then sprayed it with Perfect Pearls Mist in Sunflower Sparkle. Cut out many layers of PTI vintage ornaments from cereal box and stuck them together like Betsy showed us how to do on another MIM. Tied some fiber on them and hung them on the inside of the frame with a needle tool and some glue. I inked up the chipboard letters with Festive Berries ink by Tim Holtz and used white acrylic paint around the edges. Added the glittery bird and that was about it.  Thanks to PTI for helping me get my project done!!

Thanks for stopping.  It's been a long week after my DD had a tonsillectomy a week ago. Finally seeing a little improvement today!!! Thank goodness

Make It Monday #40: Reverse Applique

It's MIM over at Nichole's Blog :

 I'm a bit late but needed to finish this card. I started on Monday and finished this evening. I die cut the Vintage Ornaments out of Pure Poppy CS and backed them with a
paper by Jillibean Soup (Christmas Eve Chowder). Punched my holes with my handy needle tool and
faux stitched with a gold pen. Stamped on some ornament tops and sentiment from Holiday Button Bits
and adhered to some fine linen for a card base. It was very simple, I don't know why it took me all week to get back to this!   Until tomorrow!

Give Thanks

This is a simple card I wanted to share with everyone. I do a card swap with a couple girlfriends. I do believe that I get the best end of the deal, THEY are so talented! I will get their permission to post their cards in the future but for now you'll have to look at mine.
I just used an old piece of patterned paper, PTI Leaf die and Photo finishers die. Close To My Heart "Give Thanks" stamp. A little Smooch and pearls and it came together in no time.  Thanks for stopping by today!

Welcome to the Neighborhood

Here's a quick post to show you what I made for our new neighbor to welcome him to the neighborhood.
It's a jar of homemade dilly beans which my daughter had to pry out of my grip as we made our way over yesterday. I can eat a jar of these in record time, I just love em! Anyway, I figured I could part with one jar for a new neighbor even if he is not the younger family with children like we(my DD especially) were hoping for.
I used the new wine bottle die from Papertrey Ink, which worked perfectly for this with the scored fold. Added some paper scrap from 3 Bugs in a Rug, a little misc ribbon and some flowers with a button, stamped "welcome" on the tag and I was done. I hope he enjoys them as much as I do!!  Until....I get to my MIM challenge-hopefully before Sunday! Have a great weekend!
