December Art Freckles Kit Creations

I always love Christmas scrapbooking so I look forward to the new Christmas paper lines each year. The December Art Freckles Tinsel Town kit is just beautiful! You can find it right HERE. With beautiful 2 sided heavy weight Teresa Collins paper, ribbon and chipboard, bells, leaves tinsel and more, the kit is packed with Christmas fun!

Here are my creations with the kit:

Merry Christmas Card ~ used my Cricut for the card and deer shape.

Season's Greetings Card ~ used my Cricut for the sentiment.

Merry Christmas Card ~ a little vintagey

Joy Card ~ used my Cricut for the deer here as well.

Peace Layout ~ used my Cricut for the "peace"

Noel Layout ~ the "noel" is a dollar store wooden decoration

Our Family Christmas 2009 Printer's Tray ~ the printer's tray is by 7 Gypsies. It was so fun to do!

I hope you have enjoyed my creations as much as I enjoyed the kit!! You can check out the other design team creations with the kit right HERE. There are just a few kits left, so get yours while you can! Happy Holidays!!

Holiday Hostess Gifts Blog Hop

Art Freckles is having a "Holiday Hostess Gifts blog hop" today! You should have arrived her directly from the Art Freckles blog HERE. You'll be able to hop from my blog to the other Design Team blogs for some great holiday hostess gift ideas. 'Tis the season for holiday parties!!

My hostess gift idea is a stamped tile coaster.

First gather your supplies: Stazon ink, stamps, 4x4 tiles (from a home improvement store, they are very cheap), felt circles for under furniture (small) and some markers. I used Copics.

Clean your tile with a damp cloth and dry. Stamp your image on the tile with Stazon. It is a little tricky to get a great impression without slipping, as the tiles are very smooth.

Here are my 2 tiles:

Allow ink to dry for a few hours or overnight. Then carefully colour in your images with markers. I found with the Copics even though the ink was dry it still blended with the markers. I used Stazon to ink around the edges of the tile as well.

Once you are done colouring, bake your tile in the oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 minutes to heat set.

When your tiles have cooled add some felt circles under the bottom side of the tile and you are done!

Here are my 2 finished tile coasters:

Your next stop on the blog hop is Stephanie's blog right HERE. In case you get lost...after Stephanie it will be Shannon's BLOG, then Jamie's BLOG.

Have fun hopping!!
