Art with Heart Team Blog Hop - It's Beginning to Look a lot Like Christmas!

Today some of the Art with Heart Stampin' Up! Team have created some amazing Christmas projects to inspire you with the theme, It's Beginning to Look a lot Like Christmas!  We have tags, gift bags, teachers gift ideas, decoration and many more fun projects to create this holiday season.


I have decided to share with you a Mini Desk Calendar that I have designed this year for friends and family as well as my fundraiser for Compassion Australia and my sponsored child and her community in Northern Thailand.
I have used a half an piece of Thick Whisper White A4 sheet and then scored it at 5", 10", 10 5/8" and 11 1/4", then I folded it up and put some tear and tape adhesive on the small last strip and then layered up my Delightful Dijon and Whisper White cardstock.  With the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set I splashed Delightful Dijon and Crumb Cake then added all the extra details of the Flourishes Dies in Whisper White and a strip of Delightful Dijon Designer Series Paper and matching ribbon and some of my favourite Gold Baker's Twine.

Stamp Set:  Flourishing Phrases, Gorgeous Grunge
Ink:  Delightful Dijon, Crumb Cake
Cardstock:  Thick Whisper White, Delightful Dijon, Whisper White, Delightful Dijon Designer Series Paper
Accessories:  Mini Calendar, Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine, Flourish Thinlits Dies, Rhinestone Basic Jewels, Gold Baker's Twine, Delightful Dijon 5/8" Mini Striped Ribbon
