Bloggers Challenge - Product Focus

Happy Friday! I'm sure you'll enjoy this weeks Bloggers Challenge - Product Focus, use Dies or Punches on your project.

I saw a cute layout idea in the Holiday Mini (which began mailing this week) on page 8 using Berry Christmas. I didn't order that set, but in it's place used Circle Circus and Tree Trimmings - both from Stampin' Up! The Top Note was cut from White Card Stock, then cut again from a small piece of Soft Suede, which was adhered to the bottom of the White panel. The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes stamped in Red using a SAMJ. I used the SAMJ to stamp the Ribbon, and to also align the ornaments (circles from Circle Circus, ornament from Tree Trimmings). The ornaments were stamped a second time, cut out and popped up on dimensionals over the first image.

All items are available through my website.

Details:
Stamps - Tree Trimmings, Teeny Tiny Wishes, Circle Circus (all Stampin' Up!)
Ink - Crushed Curry, Soft Suede, Old Olive, Real Red
Card Stock - Old Olive, White, Soft Suede, Crushed Curry
Other - Dimensionals, SAMJ, Scallop Edge Punch, Top Note, Big Shot, Olive Grosgrain

Have a great weekend! I'm heading to the Scrapbook Expo in St. Charles IL on Saturday, hoping to run into a few friends there!
