The Holiday Mini is Here!

Good morning, I know I am a day late in getting this posted as the Holiday Mini started yesterday but I do want to share with you a start to my Christmas decorations for this year that are made with one of my favorite new products in the Holiday Mini it is something that demonstrators have asked for for quite a while and it is going to make doing 3D projects so much faster and easier. We know carry the Simply Scored Scoring Tool and I made both of these decorations with it and so can you. Both use the Letters to Santa Designer Series Paper which I stocked up on when I was on special last month. For the blue ornament (since I think these will be getting a string at the top and hung on my Stampin' Room Tree) was made by cutting out two of the larger Scallop circles on the Scallop Circle #2 Big Shot Die. I then scored them at each scallop and cut on scallop down to the center. Attach the two Scallops together to create a circle. This one is decorate with a few circle punches and the mittens from the Jolly Bingo Bits Stamp Set. To make the second ornament I used the 2 1/2 x 12" Strips of Designer Series Paper and scored both strips of DSP every 1/2" The center is decorated with Greeting Cards Kids which is still one of my favorite stamp sets. I used the new Mica Flakes for the Snow and the new Dazzling Details (think Dazzling Diamonds in a glue base that is so easy to use) around the Scallop Circle. I used markers and a blender pen to color in the little girl. Now since I cropped both pictures I thought I would give you a side by side comparison so that you could see how much bigger the 2 1/2" strips circle is than the scallop circle. I can't wait to try a few Halloween ones and of course there is so much more that can be done with the Simply Scored Scoring Tool. To get a demonstration give me a call and I will be happy to set up a time to show you how it works.
Also just a reminder that if you would like the chance to win the Blog Candy I am giving away time is running out. You only have until tonight to leave me a comment either on the post below or on facebook.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend, Tonya
