Day 2 of The Twelve Days of Christmas with My Creative Time

Hello my friends!  Welcome to Day 2 of The Twelve Days of Christmas with My Creative Time.  I hope you enjoyed the Design Teams projects so far.  They sure are some talented ladies and gentleman!!!!  You should have arrived here from Cassandra's blog.

For today's post I turned a small notebook I found at Target into a cute Christmas note pad for the endless lists I need for the season.  I will be making a few more for some of the favorite people in my life!  I used my new favorite Stamp Set Emma just released, "Keepin' It Classy".  The images in this set are gorgeous!
First I stamped the image on patterned paper.  Then I went over the image with Black Enamel Accents to make her really shiny.  This project was easy and quick.  The most time consuming part was cutting the patterned paper around the spirals but it would also work very well with a non-spiral note pad.


 My Supplies:
Notebook  -  Target
Tis The Season Paper Pad  -  DCWV
Festive Berries and Evergreen Bough Distress Inks
Jolee's Boutique Candy Cane Sticker
Black Crinkle Ribbon  -  Prairie Bird Boutique
Sheer Burgundy Ribbon  - Offray
Burgundy Twine  -  Trendy Twine
Enamel Accents in Black  -  Inkssentials
