MCT 12 Days of Christmas ~ Day 2!!

Welcome to My Creative Time's 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop!  Didn't you just love what everyone did yesterday!!!  We are showcasing projects that you can make quick and easy projects or some with more details. We are definately all SO BUSY these days, so hopefully you can pick up some ideas for this holiday season. You should have arrived here from Linsey's Blog! If not please head over to Emma's for the start! You will want to make sure that you leave a comment for everyone so that you will eligible for the DAILY GIVEAWAYS! That's right DAILY!!!

For todays project I wanted to make a mini album!  I had some dollar bin coasters from Michaels and thought they would be great for the cover!  This only took me about 2 hours to do, and really most of it was just choosing the order of  papers that I had!  I hope you enjoy it!
I coverd both side of the coaster, then distressed and inked the edges.

I added a die cut from Build a Banner Kit and  stamped the little Christmas tree from All Around Christmas.

As you can see I repeated the banner die cuts through out.  Dream Big stamp is from Small Talk.

The clocks are from All Around Birthday Time.


Mr and Mrs Claus suits are from All Around Christmas.  And Holly Jolly Holiday is from Mixed Holiday Sentiments.

Cheers is from Small Talk

Warm Holiday Wishes is from Mixed Holiday Sentiments.


Elf feet stamp from All Around Christmas, and Jingle Bell Rock is from Mixed Holiday Sentiments.


Noel and Joy is from Small Talk


recipe:
Small Talk
Mixed Holiday Sentiments
All Around Birthday Time
All Around Christmas
Build a Banner Stamp and Die Kit

paper: Teresa Collins, Christmas Home paper pack
Bazzill, Colorbok
Tim Holtz Ink ~ Antique Linen
ribbon, coasters, rings, rhinestones

really, it took me more time to put the paper in order than to make it!
