Well, it seems we are into July and after the 4th here in the US, we turn to Christmas in July! I thought this would be a great time to publicly release my Last Minute Christmas Gift idea I had posted privately back in January. This was posted in the TTCRD on-line Jan/Feb edition.
The video below gives all the details about the project and a material list. Please note I said about umpteen million times (this is an exaggeration) I used an alcohol ink.... I did NOT use alcohol ink. The CTMH inks I used on this project are water based dye inks. CTMH does sell pigments inks, also.
5 inch pillar candle
1.5 inch burlap ribbon (I used CTMH, but it's retired now.)
CTMH Inks: Chocolate, Champagne, New England Ivy, Cranberry
CTMH Cardstock: Colonial White, Kraft
CTMH Embellishments: Fern Twine, Red Enamel Gems, *White Pines
CTMH Stamps: *White Pines, Hand Lettered Christmas
Lace from stash
*Bad News: The White Pines is now retired.
Good News!!! The new holiday papers from CTMH will be available in September; they will be featured in the Seasonal Expressions Book! The new Annual Inspirations Idea Book will be available for you to see on-line August 1st! If you'd like to see current books, go HERE. Many items will be retiring; so if you are interested, order soon!
As always, please make yourself at home here. I appreciate your time viewing my videos, reading my thoughts, and just hanging out here! Do you have a video idea for me? I've had some requests for more videos, but nothing in particular. Is there a technique you want to see explained? Is there a product from CTMH you want demo'd or to see a little more in depth? Or maybe you've seen something on my blog you would like explained? I'd be happy to do that for you! Simply leave your ideas/questions in the comments below or contact me with your ideas using the button on the right side of the post.
Now, off to think about more Christmas projects! ;)
