Happy Monday everyone!!! I am sorry I have been missing in action but I just cannot get into the swing of things!!! I have been so distraught by the heinous events in Newtown, CT, that I can't get motivated to do anything. As a retired teacher (although at the college level), the slaughter of those innocent children along with those who had the educational best interests of those children at heart, has me so devastated. I have been so very haunted by the loss of everything precious in a civilized society!!! I can make no sense at all out of such a senseless act!
Today I am showing a little project that I made for the October 2012 Issue of the Whimsy Stamps Inspirations Magazine which you can find right HERE. Of course I used a darling image from the Merry Christmas Whimsy Prints Collection called Two Turtle Doves. Isn't she darling!!! I used the directions for the Mini Accordion File, changing the method of closing it a little bit. The double matting is Bazzill and the DP is from Simple Stories Handmade Holiday Collection. I only added some Stardust Stickles, organza ribbon, holly leaves and red pearls and I was done. Here is a view of what the inside looks like...
You can see that I used red business envelopes for the inside and within each pocket I placed a pack of hot apple cider mix. This neat little file could be used for images, hot chocolate mix, embellies, or even a few stamps.
