~Make it Merry, Adornit Blog Party~

Thanks for hopping over to my blog! My name is Samantha Sibbet and just like you, I love pretty paper. This is my very first Adornit blog party and I can't wait to check out all the "merry" crafts on everyone's blogs. I have a couple of projects to share with you, first up is an ornament that I made with chipboard and the ellison die cutter at my lss and some fun My Mind's Eye. The snowflake is from Bazzill-super easy and makes a nice tag for a gift or a little something for a friendly neighbor.

I also want to share this little album that I made with Maya Road kraft envelopes and my favorite Bo Bunny papers. Each of the pages is also an envelope to hold my family's "Christmas Wishes."
I bound the album together with my handy Bind it All. I used rub ons for the title and the snowflakes are Maya Road topped with my fave glitter, Martha Stewart "White Silver".












Emma sat down and sketched her wishes on little cards that I cut down to fit inside her envelope. I think she will enjoy seeing this 15 years from now. Can you tell that the one in the middle is a rocking horse? I thought that was cute.

Love your projects! Love how your little one drew pictures that you could include in your mini! How precious. I think I am a "private" versus public follower...is that okay? I don't know how to change the settings. Thanks for sharing!
