Avery Elle - Ho Ho Ho From the North Pole!

Hello friends!!

Well, I think the last time I posted I was off to enjoy an amazing weekend in Mexico!  We had a fabulous time, to say the very least!  On our way home, though, we got a text from our daughter that our granddaughter was on her way – five weeks early!  Yikes!!  So, I hopped on a plane the next morning and I’ve been here helping with my grandsons ever since.  Baby Brynley was born Monday evening, and for the most part has been doing great!  She’s no bigger than a peanut, but she’s so stinkin’ cute!  She’s getting stronger and bigger with every passing day, and she’s the perfect addition to our family!

Anywho, that’s the reason that things have been pretty quiet here on my blog.  But I wanted to pop in quickly to share another of my Avery Elle design team projects for the recent Fall Release!

10-31-14 North Pole

This project features the new stamp set called North Pole.  It’s a stamp set that is so fun and creative and unlike any holiday stamp set I’ve ever seen – Jamie is so clever and creative in her designs!!  There are three different  hats with different sentiments at the end of each (and coordinating dies).  When I saw the “ho ho ho” hat, I immediately envisioned Santa’s hat coming out of the top of a chimney.  I designed and cut a chimney using my Silhouette Cameo.  I placed some Cherry cardstock behind the negative space of the die cut chimney design.  I hand trimmed some snow drifts out of Pure White cardstock, and stamped a sentiment from Joy to the World using VersaMark and heat embossed it with some red embossing powder.  I stamped the “ho ho ho” Santa hat, again in VersaMark and heat embossed with red EP, die cut it with the coordinating North Pole Elle-Ments, and mounted the hat with foam tape.  Be sure and pop into the Avery Elle Design Blog to see what my sweet teammate, Katie, has created for you!  It’s sooo cute!!

That’s it for me today, friends!!  I’ll be back tomorrow morning with a project for the next AEI♥U Challenge!  I hope you’ll stop by to see what it is!  Thanks so much for stopping by today – it means the world to me!!
