12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop - Day 1



Welcome to the 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop! 

You should have arrived from Theresa's blog.  You can start the hop from the beginning at Lisa's blog.



It's day 1 of 12 fabulous days of holiday projects.  I made a Snowman Wreath for my Grandma.

I used three different shades of blue felt and white felt.  I cut my felt into 2 inch squares, folded each square from corner to corner and then pinned into my foam wreath.





I used Winter Frolic Cricut cartridge to make my snowmen.  This one is cut at 4.06 inches.  I hid the face cuts using my gypsy, and stamped the face with Peachy Keen's Happy New Year 1 1/8 inch face stamps.  I doodled with a white and black gel pen.  I used a copic W-1 marker to outline the face stamp.  This snowman has been into the spiked hot apple cider!


This snowman is cut at 3.71 inches.  I used a white gel pen on the mittens, scarf and earmuffs.  The stamp is a PK Snowmany Faces, 1 1/8inch.  I used W1 copic and a pink copic (oops, didn't write it down!) for the rosy cheeks.



This snowman is cut at 4.53 inches.  White gel pen used on the hat and mittens.  PK Snowmany Faces stamp, W1 copic and pink copic for the cheeks.



The snowflake is from the Cricut Cartridge "Christmas".  It's cut at 3.71 inches.  I cut the shadow and the main cut.  Then I flipped the snowflake (using my gypsy) and cut the reverse.  My snowflake is now 2 sided. I used blue and white twine to hang my snowflake from the top of the wreath.  In the center of the snowflake, I put a clear jewel.  I also inked the edges a bit in blue ink.






Up next is Jillian!  

See you tomorrow with another new Holiday 2012 project!  Have an awesome day.
Sheila

    1. I did do a tutorial! I now buy my felt by the yard at joann's instead of the 8.5x11 pieces. I've found it's WAY cheaper! Here's the link to my tutorial: http://2pawprints.blogspot.com/2012/06/red-white-and-blue-wreath-tutorial.html
