Things have been a bit on the crazy side since returning from convention, hence the lack of new posts. Our county fair is this week and prep for that is always a big time commitment. But the kids have had a great time exhibiting projects and participating in all the related activities. Hopefully I will have some fun scrapbook pages soon to share with all the pics.
It felt good to finally stamp again! The Contempo Christmas stamp set and matching wheel have such a fun retro feel and the DSP from the level 1 hostess pack complements it perfectly.
The strip with the ribbon is piece of Pear Pizzaz cardstock on which I used the Contempo wheel inked with Pear Pizzaz ink. I folded it at each little pointed oval and cut the centers out with sharp scissors. Then I ran it through the Paper Crimper before threading White Taffeta ribbon through the cut-outs.
