Gingerbread Houses and Gum Drops....Magic of Christmas...
While cutting out some Acorns from the Many Thanks stamp set (CTMH) the other night...I thought to myself..."hum, these totally look like a Gum Drop!!" SOOO with that in my brain and the itch to make a Gingerbread house with the "Around the Block" Stamp of the Month. (this month!)..I was sooo sucked in to CREATE this page!!!! I love my gum drops!!!! I embossed them with clear embossing powder mixed with just a bit of prisma glitter (CTMH). I even used the ITTY BITTY acorn stamp to make my tiny gum drops for the windows of my gingerbread house and the the bases of my "candy cane" corners!!! I used a regular ole hole punch and punched out circles for the roof, random triangles for the ends of my candy windows....Cute little Trees from the "DEC Word Puzzle" (soon to be retired get yours NOW!!!) I fun flocked, glittered and glued my way into a frenzy of Christmas Magic!!! We make gingerbread houses every year and I am SO looking forward to filling up these pages with Magical FUN!!! I have MANY Thanks for the WONDERFUL stamp set made for the fall season only to be used as my walk of candy on this SUPER FUN PAGE!! I TOTALLY love the JINGLE paper packet!!!!
