Wow, that was a lot!! Are you still with me? Here's my project, at long last!!
I've used several of our newly released goodies here, Crissy's Santa Clause, Raindrop Echo Designs Holiday Pendants and Holiday Mini Postage for my store-brand Shake'n'Bake can make-over project!!



I went and studied my dear friend INGRID'S BLOG for pointers on how to use the pennant stamps, as I think she uses them masterfully!! I coloured in ditress inks and adhered several fun layers of papers and laces with glues and tapes. I added Kaiser pearls and gems and there are some snowflakes in the mix as well!!


I layered a couple of postage sentiments, Santa-related ones of course, and added a holly leaf and stamen for a holiday effect!!


Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy our new release!
