My Creative Time ~ 12 Days of Christmas : Day 8

Good morning everyone! It time for Day 8 of the My Creative Time ~ 12 Days of Christmas. If you arrived here from Emma's blog, then you are headed in the right direction. If not, then make sure you start there because you don't want to miss a thing! I sure hope you all are having tons of fun! The list of holiday ideas is amazing . . . and for all levels of time, money and experience. I truly feel honored to be a part of such an amazing Design Team. Please make sure that you leave comments for Emma and all the Design Team members. They certainly deserve the LOVE!!!  

I'm so happy with my project today.  I just love how my little wreaths turned out.  :)  You can use them as a gift, or maybe for some holiday home decor, or even a tree ornament (if your tree is really big LOL).


For each wreath, I cut a round base out of chipboard from the Fancy Frames ~ Cricut cartridge.  Then I used the My Creative Time ~ Scallop Die to cut out about 20 scallop shapes in several different patterned papers for each wreath.  In the center of each wreath is a December calendar.  I used the My Creative Time ~ XL Label Die to cut the base for the calendar.  And I used the My Creative Time ~ Whimsical Calendar Days stamp set for the border and calendar images.  The ink is Memento ~ Tuxedo Black.


For this red wreath, all of the patterned papers are from the Recollections ~ Sugar Plums paper stack.  The beautiful bow is made out of Celebrate It ~ Holiday Noel ribbon.


 To decorate this wreath, I used the starburst die from the My Creative Time ~ Build A Banner Kit.  Then I stamped the cute little Santa jacket from the My Creative Time ~ All Around Christmas stamp set in the center of the starburst.  I colored in the little jacket with Prismacolor pencils and also added some Stardust ~ Stickles to add a little extra sparkle.  The red little box around the 25th of December is stamped with Memento ~ Rhubarb Stalk ink.


For this blue wreath, all of the patterned papers are from the Die Cuts With A View ~ Winter Magic paper stack.  The beautiful bow is made from Celebrate It ~ Holiday Bow-tique ribbon.


To decorate this blue wreath, I once again used the starburst die from the My Creative Time ~ Build A Banner Kit.  I stamped the little snowman from the My Creative Time ~ All Around Christmas stamp set in the center of the starburst shape.  And I colored them in with Prismacolor pencils.  The blue square around the 25th of December is stamped with Technique Tuesday ~ blue ink.


For this green wreath, all of the patterned papers are from the Recollections ~ Sugar Plums paper stack.  The cute bow is made from Celebrate It ~ Holiday Noel ribbon.


To decorate this green wreath, I again used the starburst die from the My Creative Time ~ Build A Banner Kit.  I stamped the cute little Christmas tree from the My Creative Time ~ All Around Christmas stamp set.  And I colored them in with Prismacolor pencils.  The green box around the 25th of  December is stamped with Memento ~ Cottage Ivy ink.


I think they turned out so pretty!  I hope the picture shows it well enough.   :)
