Welcome to the VC Rocks Anything But A Card Blog Hop! You have just arrived from viewing Kristi Jaenisch's wonderful works of art, and you can link back to her blog HERE. I hope you are enjoying all of the fabulous projects you've seen so far; this is such a talented group of stampers! I have prepared 3 projects for you, and hope you like them.
The first project is a very simple one. I ran the Northern Frost Sizzlits Decorative Strip Die through my Big Shot using a piece of Brushed Silver cardstock. I used red and green Rhinestone Brads to attach the snowflakes to the candle. I did this by pushing the brads through the snowflake opening and directly into the candle. Very simple, quick and easy - and you can change up the look for different occasions and holidays.
Supplies: Big Shot, Northern Frost Sizzlits Decorative Strip Die, Ice and Fire Circle Rhinestone Brads, Candle, Stand
My next project is a To Do/Calendar binder and matching post-it-note holder that I made for office. I got the idea for the covers from a picture I saw in the Summer Mini Catalog on page 24. The binder I used was a bigger than the sample shown, so I added a few more flowers to my cover. I am so glad that the Beyond the Garden designer paper was carried over into the new catty; I love how bright and colorful it is! I also like the look of the twisted ribbon and the dimension it gives to projects. I have found that a strip of sticky strip is the best thing to use to keep the ribbon from coming off. Here's the details:

For my last project I chose to do a bookmark. This was another very simple and fun project to do. I used the Daisies #2 Flower Bigz Die and cut (5) of the large flowers, and (3) each of the medium and small flowers using Island Indigo cardstock. I also cut (1) large flower using Whisper White cardstock. I then layered the flowers together, added some Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz and then attached a large Whisper White brad. I attached the flower to the bookmark using a dimensional. Here's a front and side view of the flower.
Papers: Island Indigo, Whisper White
