Today is a sad sad day, today I am announcing my last post for One Stitch At A Time. I have been with the DT for 4 yrs, I think. I just want to say how much I am going to miss them and want to Thank Stitchy and Jane and my teamies for all the years of fun, support and encouragement. They definitely have pushed me to try new things and broaden into other areas of crafting/art that I would have not tried. Being on a DT for that long it's like family. You get to know each other and make friendships that are treasured for a long time. I will miss being a part of such a fabulous team.
For this New Challenge at One Stitch At A Time I created a couple of Christmas items, a card and matchbox gift box. The New One Stitch At A Time Challenge theme - Anything Goes with Recycling.
For this card I used PBD Christmas Flakes 3. I just love the beautiful Non-Traditional colors of
this set. So soft and pretty, yet it still has a Christmas feel to it. This paper set is digital paper but
it is just gorgeous. For the Recycling portion of the challenge I used some Prima gems
that I had placed on a photo frame a while back. I pulled them off and then glued them down
around my beautiful Christmas bulb image. And I placed the remaining ones inside the
the little box I created with this beautiful paper.
Here is close up of the Christmas card I created. I used the gems I recycled from a photo frame.
I added stickels to the Christmas bulbs and Christmas trees. One of the digital papers has these
pretty little holly leaves with pink berries so I fussy cut those out and adhered them to the card.
Another design paper in this set has the words Merry Christmas which I cut out with one of my
label dies and popped up to make it look 3D. I just love how this card turned out so pretty.
Here is a close of the matchbox Christmas gift box I created. For the top of the box I used
the digital paper that had Merry Christmas and the bottom of the box I used the blue digital
design. I created a bow from the holly paper and fussy cut out the holly and adhered in the
middle of bow and used a pink pearl for the centers of both of the holly's.
Here is the inside of the matchbox and I covered the bottom with another
one of the digital papers, and along the sides I placed gems.
Accessories: Prima gems; pink pearls; Stickels - gold; label die
