Merry Christmas, Lynette!

Welcome to the Merry Christmas, Lynette Blog Hop! Today, the Sweet Pea Stamps design team are sharing a selection of creations as a surprise to Lynette, owner of Sweet Pea Stamps. 

Now if you stopped by a couple weeks ago for our Out of the Box Christmas hop, you will remember this lovely image I featured. Well, I am at again - I just love this set so much!

Today I have used both the Grapevine Frame (Plate #165) and Wings of Love (Plate #131) together. It was colored with copics, the papers are from 7gypsies and core'dinations, the flower is handmade from Webster's Pages goodies. The grapevine rubon is from BoBunny.


The flower is real simple to create. Take a scrap of chipboard - about an inch in size, a piece of pleated trim - I used less than twelve inches and a hot glue gun. After the glue gun is ready, start on the outside of the chipboard and drop a bit of glue. Attach the trim and continue around the perimeter of the chip board scrap. When you come to the beginning of the trim move inward with the glue and continue to adhere the trim until all that is left is a small opening in the center. Attach a button with hot glue over the center and press down. Now you have a sweet little flower.

Now don't forget to stop over at Sweet Pea Stamps where there is a wonderful deal of the day. Today is also the last day to get free shipping!

Below you will find the list of stops along the way, leave a comment at each stop for an entry into a drawing for a 3 piece grab bag of Sweet Pea Stamps images. The drawing will be held 12/22 and the winner announced on the Sweet Pea Stamps blog. Thanks for stopping by, Merry Christmas and good luck!
