Christmas Blog Hop!! ScrapFX & Scrapbook Creations

Hi There!  If this is your first time to my blog, welcome so glad to have you and of course I'm always elated to have my friends stopping by!!  I'm very excited to be participating in this special Christmas Blog Hop with Scrapbook Creations Magazine and ScrapFX so on with the show.

Another month, another blog hop! This time Scrap FX and Scrapbook Creations have partnered up to bring you this very special chipboard Christmas celebration! But before we get onto the actual hop, let me show you this!

What is this, you ask? THIS is the prize you could win (a pack of delicious ScrapFX goodies and a digital SC subscription), if you join in and play along. It's easy enough to be in with a chance to win-- simply comment on my post, click on the next blog in the list, comment on their blog hop post, and repeat until you've completed the entire list! (Make sure you do check out the inspiration--it's all brilliant!) (The blog hop ends next Wednesday, 11 December, at midday Australian Eastern Daylight Savings Time. For my US friends this is actually a Tuesday, December 10th end date so be aware of that.) 

Here is my inspiration for you:

Reindeer Ornaments

These little ornaments were created on mini canvas panels.  I used the ScrapFX Random Dots Stencils (2013172) to add texture to the painted background.  While the paste was wet I sprinkled it with glitter and sealed this with a fixative to ensure this sparkle will last throughout the years.  The little Reindeer (2009349) were the perfect embellishment to add on top with some glitzy antlers and bling nose for simple touches.

Here you can see the texture and detail a bit better.  This is such a quick and easy project and would look great attached to a gift.

Peace On Earth

Another 6x6 mixed media canvas using the Moroccan Tile Stencil (2013352) to build the background and featuring some of the cute mini chippies ScrapFX now offers!  The Mini Flying Wings (2013232) worked wonderfully for this Peace on Earth message using the Itty Bitty Bets - Typewriter font (2005103) letters.  The flourish with the holly (Holly Flourish - 2012257) as the backdrop added an elegant touch and was altered with paint, mist for the holly leaves with a brush, and glitter glue for the berries.

Merry Christmas Tag

This tag will be going in my December album and I adore the fun touches I was able to add by using up bits from my stash and some fun little ScrapFX Christmas pieces.  The Christmas Stars (2007387) and Mini Christmas Trees (2007384) will surely be getting a workout in my projects this season but what is truly fabulous is they really can be used all year long!  

And with that I wish you all a Happy start to the Christmas season!!  I do hope you've been inspired to get going on some fun projects of your own.  Below you will find where to head off to next!
