Thankful Banner

Here's the banner I created for my sister. I almost kept it for myself! I used the gorgeous paper from DCWV Wild Splendor, beautiful foil and glitter pages.  I purchased it for $4 last year, after Thanksgiving sale at Michael's.  I know right, bargain, or were you thinking paper hoarder? LOL
The banner is a SVG cut from Designs on Cloud 9 and I used brads, twine, sequins and rhinestones to embellish.

Here's the banner in her home.  I snapped the photo with my phone, so it's a little fuzzy.

Have your Elf a little...


How cute are those Elf shoes!  I kept thinking of Buddy the Elf,  "I just like to smile, smiling's is my favorite".  LOL  One of my favorite Christmas movies of all time!

I'm guest designing for A Jillian Vance Design, using the new Dear Santa stamp and die set.   Cut and stamp, how easy is that!  The legs are from scrap bits and accents with Stickles.  The talk bubbles were cut with Cricut.  Pattern paper from Echo Park's 'Tis the Season and Reflections Christmas; twine from The Twinery.

This set is adorable from the moment you run the dies through and you see the lil' clothing to stamping and embellishing, cuteness overload!!


 I also want to remind you of the Black Friday Sale going on right now, don't miss it:


Thank you AJVD for inviting me to guest design it was loads of fun creating with the stamp and die set!!  Have your'elf a Happy Thanksgiving! ♥
