November Heartfelt Creations Almuni Blog Hop

Hello friends!  It's that time again when we are hosting the Heartfelt Creations Alumni Blog Hop.  As always, you will have the chance to win a $25 gift certificate to shop at Heartfelt Creations.  All you have to do is comment on each blog that is participating in the hop.  The hop starts 8am EST on Tues. November 25th and closes Fri. November 28th at midnight.

I bought some cabinet door panels from our Habitat for Humanity ReStore and repurposed them into Christmas decorations.  I used the Frosty Blanket Paper Collection for the main image and then framed it with poinsettias.  

Using a paper back book, I folded half the pages to make a Christmas tree.  I stamped the Noel image and added it along with some more flowers.  

And then, just for fun, I created a little snow lady with a flower hat and buttons.  And now that I'm looking at the pic, I think I need to make a snow family.  She looks rather lonely.
 Here is the list of products used.  I have indicated which products are available for just a short time.  You might want to take some time to browse through the items on sale (some 50%!), it's an awesome time to stock up before they're gone forever!

Warm Cozy Christmas

Here we are, on the road again, and time for me to do more digital work.  

When I saw the theme at Digitally Sweet Challenges, (Cozy Winter Moments) I searched for a digital scrapbook kit with a fireplace.  I found a gorgeous kit 'Christmas Time' by Didine Designs at CoolScraps Digital Boutique.  The scene in the window is from Lunagirl.

Digital layouts are such fun to create; I spent several hours playing with all the beautiful elements.  I don't think there's anything I enjoy more on a cold winter day than a fireplace. 

Thanks so much for visiting and have a blessed day!
