Club Scrap Christmas Thyme Blog Hop

Welcome to the Club Scrap Christmas Thyme Blog Hop featuring the Christmas Thyme special edition collection. If you arrived from Tricia's Efficient Crafter Blog then you are in the right place. If not, visit Karen's post at the Club Scrap Blog for the full list of participants.

I created several projects for the hop. I used elements from both the Christmas Thyme Digital Kit and the Christmas Thyme Stamper's Kit.

Tea-lighted House:

Stamp the house image onto Manila paper. Color the image with pencils and white gesso.
Fussy cut the image with scissors.
Cover the gesso snow with Rock Candy Distress Stickles.
Trim out the windows and door with a craft knife. Leave the door attached at the hinge.
Stamp the home image again onto white tissue paper.
Attach the fussy cut house to the front of a 2.5" square box created from a Club Scrap pizza box.
Note: Cut out the windows and the door holes with a craft knife from the front of the box prior to assembly.
Glue the tissue paper to the front interior wall of the box.
Line the box with Gold paper. Cover the outside of the box with Manila paper with Bookbinding Glue.
IMPORTANT!- Do not use real flame candles with paper projects. I used a battery operated tea-light.

Scrapbook Pages:

Sketch from Ivory Elegance idea recipe card.

Two 12x12" background papers, Citron and Olive, from Club Scrap Garden Shed Deluxe Kit.
Two 8.5x11" trimmed papers, Ivory Berries and Rust, from Christmas Thyme Stamper's Kit.
Print tags and embellishments onto Manila paper from Christmas Thyme Digital Kit.

Title "Merry Christmas" stamped with Earth Hybrid ink onto Manila panel tied with gold ribbon.

Christmas Cards:

Print the Berry background onto 8.5x11" white paper from the Christmas Thyme Digital Kit.
Note: This print didn't come out as vibrant as I hoped, so I colored in some of the leaves and berries with coordinating markers. It really added the perfect punch of color.

Attach Manila 3.5x4.75" panels stamped with the house and sentiment images.
Note: Ink the house stamp with Sandstone Hybrid ink. Prior to stamping the image, color over the wreath and window boxes with the coordinating red and green markers.
Add embellishments to complete the cards. The flowers were from the Club Scrap Retreat 2010.

Thanks so much for joining me on my part of the hop!
