Frosted Finishes Embellishment Necklace

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

A happy Sunday to you!

I am happy, I finally finished all my Christmas shopping yesterday.  Many of my friends have been done for a while, and the gifts are wrapped under the tree!  I will be wrapping tomorrow as I wait out our winter storm, watching Christmas movies and drinking hot chocolate…. sounds like a perfect Sunday.

Today I want to share with you a special little gift that I made for the girls who work for me at the Candyman on Main.  This is our first holiday season together … in fact, it’s all of our “first” holiday season!  None of us have worked in the store during the Christmas holiday so we pulled together, had a great season, and a great time.

To “thank” them, I began with the beautiful “Frosted Finishes Embellishments“…

I did go to the local hobby store to pick up the rest to create the necklace.  My mistake was not ordering the beautiful “Simply Adorned Chain” which is currently on the clearance rack.  I have some on order now for future projects … they’re a steal at only $4.39

I added a simple link which holds the Frosted Finishes Embellishment so nicely and added it to the chain.  I tucked it into a small gift box and …

Isn’t it beautiful?  Just think … you could make a pair of matching earrings too.  Jewelry making is “hot” right now, so why not add a Stampin’ Up! touch to it.

Have a wonderful day, and if you’re waiting for the snow to stop like I am … sit back and enjoy, or stop over at my on-line store and get some of these goodies to make for your friends.  Just click on the “pink” links.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.

Wishing you Joy …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

I hope you had a wonderful weekend.  I’m sure many of you are busy getting ready for your Thanksgiving celebration, and upcoming holiday season.

Today I would like to share with you a card you can create so simply with the “Oval Collections Framelits”.

They were a must have on my list because I think they compliment your scrapbooking so well.  Funny thing is … I use them on my cards so much more!

I sized the first oval based on the greeting, then used it to cut out the Winter Frost Designer Paper.  The greeting was then stamped with Island Indigo directly onto the card base.

The Island Indigo ring around the greeting is actually a piece that was double cut … the first piece was used as a mat for another card.

To complete that card I added the beautiful “Frosted Finishes” Embellishment.  It coordinates so nice with the design on this paper and adds that bit of “bling” you like for the holidays.
