I didn’t really spend Christmas with Gina’s Designs as the title suggests lol, although thanks to the wonders of technology Gina and I did spend Christmas morning together 🙂
I have a layout for you today made using the new String Alongs in the store, embossed in separate areas using a versamark pen. It seems like forever since I did a physical scrapbook layout instead of a digital one and I really enjoyed making it!
Our boys decided to get us up at 5.15 am on Christmas Day morning, hence the title for the layout, I had the boys write onto some tags with an embossing pen which I then embossed with clear powder along with my own tag as well. When I put the layout together I created pockets for the tags by gluing down only tiny bits of the strip of paper that the tags sit behind, thus allowing the viewer to take out the tags a read the reverse (which explains the title!)

WOW embossing powder – red Glitz and clear
Papermania patterned papers
Versamark embossing pen and red embossing pen
The theme for the challenge over at Clarity Stamp Challenge blog this month is Winter so I decided to create this snowglobe card, I made my own stencil for the snowglobe from a file cover.
I wrote instructions in order to put it on a site I belong to called Instructables, you can see them here.I would love it if you went and voted for me in the competition over there (you have to become a member to vote but that is free) There are all sorts of instructables on that site, just check it out – not only crafty stuff but pretty much anything you can imagine!
I used the Re mountable Winter Wonderland clear stamp set and the 21 Remountable Winter Trees Clear Stamp Set along with Chipped Sapphire and Vintage Photo Distress ink
