Santa's Christmas List

German Phrase of the Day: Faehrst du an Weihnachten zu deiner Familie? = Are you visiting your family for Christmas? I am actually staying here for Christmas this year, but my in-laws are flying over from Texas to be with us this year. We're looking forward to it!

Here's a notebook I made to keep track of Christmas gifts that I need to purchase. Of course, I didn't use it this year, so will have to save it for next year!

I started with a notebook from Target. I used some of the Holiday Thyme paper from last year to cover the front (also using my spiral notebook punch!) Then, I used my new CM curvy cutter to cut the snowy hills, and I edged them with a little pearl stickles to make them shimmer.

I stamped the sign and Sandy Claws onto watercolor paper with Palette Noir ink, and colored them in with my aquapainter and ink pads. Ruby Red and Wild Wasabi for Sandy Claws and his sleigh, with a little silver encore for the runners, and Ruby Red and Chocolate Chip for the sign. After I cut them both out, I added some liquid applique and a little Dazzling Diamonds glitter which I puffed up with my heat gun.

I stuck the sign between the snowy hills and adhered it with a dimensional, then I added Sandy Claws up in the sky with another dimensional. I stamped the title with my Karen Foster snap stamps - love them for getting perfect spacing!

The final step was adding the ribbons! This project was a lot of fun to make, and I love all the shimmer it has in real life. And this stamp set is just so much fun to play with!
