Two-Page LO with BG Jovial - HappyNScrappin Designer

Welcome to GabyCreates.com
and my first posting as Designer for
HappyNScrappin is an online store offering great discounted prices everyday! It is the first online store I purchased from when I started scrapbooking a year ago!

This Two-Page LO is the December Basic Grey's Page Of The Month (BG POTM).  You can find it at HappyNScrappin at a great discounted price!

Even though you receive detail instructions with each kit, you can improvise or change, take or add any element or embellishment you wish to make a bit more you!
For the left bottom page I pretty much follow the instructions with the exception of two additional two Jovial Pops/ornaments, I decided I liked it with just one.
For the right page: I adhered the 1/4" strip of BG Jovial Scarf under the artisan label instead of on top. I decided to adhered the artisan to a piece of kraft cardstock and pop dotted it to give it more dimension. I additionally used the label facing the opposite way and added a piece of ribbon.

All That Glitters Blog Hop Day 2

If you are here for the It's A Small World Blog Hop, click HERE or scroll down.

Welcome to GabyCreates.com
and to the
All That Glitters Blog Hop! Day 2
If you arrived from visiting Daily Grace Creations you are in the right place!  But if you happen to just be visiting and wish to start at the beginning, start at A Place For My Cards

Today I created an ornament using
Acetate, StazOn ink, a stamp, clear ornaments, Copic markers and glitter.

This would have look much much better if I had used a Copic sprayer...
note to self: buy one.  LOL like I need notes to go shopping!!
This was my first ornament, a learning experience... I cut the circle too small so it fell on the glitter and the edge of the acetate circle is too noticeable.
Steps to create:
Cut circle out of acetate the same circumference as your clear ornament.
Stamp desired stamp with StazOn ink.
Color with Copic markers or spray on the back side or opposite of the side you stamped your stamp (don't want to mix solvent ink with alcohol markers)
Let dry... roll your design and insert into ornament after taking ornament cover off.  If its a bit smaller, punch a small hole on top of acetate and add a piece of string so you can hold straight and won't fall on the glitter.
Replace ornament top or cover and tie ribbon if desired.

This was yesterday's project
Thanks for Visiting!
Please follow along and leave a comment!
I will combine yesterday's comments
with today's for the giveaway!
I am giving an i-rock!
