I started with a round coaster that I have had sitting around for probably three years and then I colored the edge with my Chocolate Chip marker, so that the edge is not so noticeable. Then I covered both sides with Bella Rose designer paper. Even though it's not really a Christmas paper, I thought that the red, green and brown were Christmas-y. After I covered the coaster and trimmed the paper, I covered the front with one inch squares of the various patterns in the Bella Rose paper.
I was going to leave it with just the paper, but then I realized that the snowflake from the Word Flurries Rub-ons fit perfectly! I finished the ornament off with a Jumbo Brad and Kiwi Kiss grosgrain ribbon.

I made each of them a set of monogram note cards. I used the same layout for each set and just changed the colors and Designer Paper. I used patterned papers that have retired that I still had. I also included a candle I found at the Target Dollar Spot and decorated with the I Wish Simply Scrappin' Kit. Finally I included a decorated notepad.

It's another color inspiration! I really love how this card turned out. I was trying to use a set that I hadn't used in a while, so I decided on Pick a Petal. Really, I was trying to avoid another Pocket Silhouette Card! I just have to say that those of you who come to my classes may see this card again soon, so I hope you like it too!
I have to apologize for my lack of posts. What with getting ready for the Holidays, I have really been a slacker. I also think that posting everyday in November burned me out rather than turning into a good habit, but I am really going to try to post more regularly. I am happy to report that all of the Christmas cards have been mailed, the gifts have been shipped and I only have two more gifts to make and wrap for family that will be here for Christmas. And I've still got a week to go!
One of the sets I used in my card is the Canvas background. That's one of the sets that will be retiring as of Jan 18th. Did you know that until Dec 23rd you can get any retiring set for 10% off? You can also get FREE shipping when you spend $70. You can check out all of the retiring sets by visiting my website and clicking SHOP NOW and then Specials!
