I am Back!

I have a lot to discuss too! But It's 3:00 AM... so it ain't gonna happen tonight! lol! But I do have a fun Lizzie Anne Designs project for you!

I have a whole post in the works about my wonderful weekend at the Scrapbook Manor... go ahead and book your weekend NOW... we had so much more fun than we even thought we'd have... what a value! Stay tuned for that.

Now some craftyness...

So I scored these little triangle boxes at Paper Source (sorry... can't find the actual product link... but you could call them up). They are wonderful quality... almost like a watercolor paper texture. I thought they'd be splendid trees! I stamped the base with Wild Wasabi (my favorite Christmas green) with the new LAD set In the Background. Boy do these unmounted stamps make THAT process super easy!

But let's take a closer look at good ole Santa (also a new stamp from LAD)... I stamped him on whisper white CS with Black Archival Ink and colored with Copics... but not the hat... that was stamped on Real Red and pieced in place to achieve a nice bold color... and the beard and hat trim were stamped on a fuzzy flocked paper (unknown maker) with Staz-On and also pieced in place! I just love when a project is tactile like this one is.

Santa is placed in a Wasabi Tag that I cut out with the Cricut Expressions... and no... I don't OWN a Cricuit Expressions... but I NEED one now... I fell in love with the Cricut at the Scrapbook Manor!
