All year long I try to remember ideas for Christmas gifts for the various family members, decorating ideas, recipes, activities etc. This year I decided to get ahead of the game and make myself a little mini Christmas note book that I can keep all of my ideas and lists in one place. It's small enough to fit in my purse so when I'm out and about I can jot things down right away and not have to rely on my spotty memory! The only thing that I would do differently is try to find a smaller pen to use....the RSVP pen is a little bit big for my purse but you can't beat that it matches!
The ornament stamp is from Delightful Decorations which I am thrilled made it into the big catalog from last year's mini catalog. I bought so much from that mini that I was praying some of it would make it into the big catalog so I could keep demonstrating (and not blow the stamping bank account) this set as I love it and didn't get to use it as much as I would have liked to last year. I punched out the ornament with the ornament punch. I stamped the little star burst/flower (what do you think it is???) in Old Olive and then punched it out. I adhered everything together and refrained from using a dimensional....I know right, no dimensionals??? I figured being raised up would just catch the ornament on things floating around in my purse and I didn't want it getting ripped off the mini notebook. Last but not least I added a little BLING to to the ornament.
Reminder to my local stamp club ladies--TUESDAY is Stamp-A-Stack at 7pm!! Have you been working on your Stampin' Challenges? I have the prize all set and can't wait to see what everyone has made!
