December will be here tomorrow! I have to say it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas around here. We saw snow flurries earlier, the fire is roaring already this morning, and the girls set up the Christmas village last night. I made a wonderful Mexican dinner last night especially for my mom. She loves Mexican food so I did the cooking to give her a break from all the work she did for Thanksgiving. After supper, we did a little sewing workshop and she showed me how to do a blanket stitch and French knots. Then it was my turn to do a little show and tell. I got out my basket of Christmas stamped goodies and let her pick out a notebook. These below were a few of my samples. I showed some a few days ago too, using the full size junior notepads. I used my fun K and Company papers and glittered chipboard accents again, along with some tied buttons and ribbon.
For the one above, I used Karen Lockhart's Rose Stocking. By paper piecing part of the stocking, I was able to use Copic markers to match and make a beautiful accent piece. Sentiment is from Papertrey Ink along with the polka dot ribbon and solid cardstock in Ocean Tides.
