Guest Designer Lorie!

Good morning friends and Happy Saturday!  Today I'm pleased to be the guest designer on the Jaded Blossom blog!  There are always so many things I could make each time I sit down to craft however this December I'll be concentrating quite a lot on my December project called December Documented (AKA December Daily) so I thought I'd use some of the awesome JB Dies and Stamps on my project.  Check it out...

So above is the front of my December Documented album...the inside pages are about 6"x8" and the outside about 8 3/4"x8 3/4".  The album comes with the stripe portion on the side and I've decided to use Simple Stories Classic Christmas paper and embellishments for this project.  I had fun adding my December Documented title to the flags from Flag Dies 2 and the letters/year numbers are from Jaded Blossom's Alphabet Dies.  I've also used Christmas Dies for the candy cane (candy canes are my favorite Christmas candy!) and holly on each corner. 

Above is my 'intentions' page although I like the prompt of 'my why' better so I went with that.  Again, the letters are from the Alphabet Dies and the star at the top of the tree from the Star Dies.  I've used the Oh Christmas Tree Stamp and cut it out with my Brother Scan n Cut (love that thing!!).  I've added a strip of washi stamped with one of the Holiday Designer Tapes set and then used the little deer/heart stamp from Holiday Sweater Mug (this was a freebie stamp in November).  All of the papers are from the 6x6 Classic Christmas pad (my 12x12 pad didn't arrive on time to use it for this purpose).  The sweater trim and twine I have in my stash. So, there you have it!  The beginning of my December Documented album using a ton of Jaded Blossom stamps!

Guest Designer Mindy!

I'm so excited to be a part of this unique opportunity from Jaded Blossom! I have absolutely fallen in love with their stamps and dies! You can visit their website HERE to check them out!

For my project today I'm sharing a decor item. I needed a little something festive for my wall and this was the perfect time to do it! I used a box frame from Michael's so the finished piece is "set back" in the frame. The letters for JOY I created in my Silhouette Designer Studio using Doodlebug paper. All the die pieces (tree, snowflake and bell) I cut out in glitter paper.
