Specifically, we're asking you to gather-up the new crafting goodies you received for the holidays and put them to crafty use! Just in case all you got from Santa was a bag of coal, break-out something from your crafting arsenal that you haven't created with yet. OR... perhaps you'd like to hit those fabulous "After Xmas" sales and treat yourself to a bargain or two?!
Meanwhile, here's what Santa brought us:
Stephanie says, "I've had this Simon Says Stamp Ring Wreath on my wish list for quite some time ... for its first use, I filled the black cardstock die cut with two colors of teal glitter cardstock (if you enlarge, you can see the subtle difference in color) and silver glitter cardstock. I finished with a Joy sentiment from Simon Says Stamp Big Words-Encouraging Words and a punched black cardstock bow ... this card just screams mid-century modern to me, which is a design period I love."
Lauren says, "My blogging partner and crafty BFF Stephanie (who is also a Stampin' Up representative) gave me a gorgeous double-sided SU collection called, "Quilted Christmas" which I just couldn't wait to use! I'm not sure how both the green stitchy pattern and the glorious red gingham wound up as mats, but I love how they look. Meanwhile, those handsome reindeer and the fun holiday trees are from an American Crafts sticker sheet that came in a big bundle of xmas stickers I bought from one of my favorite daily deal sites... just a little too late to use in the 2017 JB season. I've added in some ancient Love, Elsie music paper and Hambly snowflake stickers to round off this fun winter scene."
And to get your new year off to a great start, we Jingle Belles will be sharing a prize with one lucky (randomly selected) participant of our first prompt of 2018.
You know you want that cute little holiday trio, fun Christmas papers and that tiny holiday tree ... so come join the fun. Link up here by 6pm (EST) on Wednesday, January 10th. Keyword for galleries and Flickr is JB:18:01.
