Apparently some couldn’t view the latest image in the 12 weeks of Christmas email, so I’m posting the project here for your viewing pleasure…. I think if you click on the image you can see it even more closely, if you wish…

I picked up this frame when I was in the US last summer (Walmart, $3 or something ridiculous like that).  I used Stampin’ Up!’s Wintergreen Designer Series Paper as the background, stamped the Headline Alphabet letters and the word "friend" from Everyday Flexible Phrases in close to cocoa craft ink (for longevity & for ease of coverage – I find it works well with larger solid images if I’m having trouble getting a good imprint).  Accessories are flowers from the Pretties Kit, white taffeta ribbon, and antique brass hodgepodge hardware.

I chose to stamp each letter on an individual piece of cardstock, and then mounted them in a "jumbly" fashion to avoid anxiety over whether things were perfectly centered or perfectly aligned.  This is a useful technique for scrapbook pages as well!

If I get the time, I’m hoping to do a more seasonal one that says "NOEL"….I still have almost a month….

Still 3 weeks to go in my 12 weeks of Christmas emails!  (Sign up for my newsletter if you’d like to be included).
