6 single digis to win
5 digital images to win

 Here's my inspiration for the blog its a list book for Christmas you could use it for that mammoth shop that we all do the week before the holidays where we spend 3 times the amount of cash we would normally do on stuff we would never dream of eating the rest of the year, like Brussel Sprouts, Parsnips, Turkey breast and of course the now traditional Terrys Chocolate Orange !!( other chocolate is available lol) . You could also give this to the kids so they can write their wish list for you to pass on to the fat guy in red. I am under strict orders not to say the 'S' word before December or my stocking is guaranteed to be empty!

 CHRISTMAS LIST BOOK  Featuring 'Beautiful Bow, Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamp'

You will need
Cheap Shopping list book
Beautiful Bow Digital Stamp
Spellbinders D-lites Medallion 4
Spellbinders iron accents die
Spellbinders Fleur de lis Square die
Penny Black 'Beautiful Season' Stamp
Tim Holts 'Broken China'  ink pad
Gold, black and white card
Pastel blue shiny card
Gold peel offs
Red Glitter
Ranger Glossy Accents

Step 1
Cut 2 medallions out of gold card using Spellbinders D-lites medallion 2 dies. These dies are relatively new to the market and are smaller than the average spellbinders die but lack nothing when it comes to detail, there is a large selection to chose from and they are quiet beautiful and I can see myself and others buying many more of this range. Check them out over on J and C Creations Website        

 Step 2                                                          
Print out 6 Beautiful bows and colour 3 in using your Spectrum Noirs , Any Alcohol pen with do this job but I love my Spectrum Noirs and pull them out at every opportunity. when this is done cut them out and decoupage them on top of each other , repeat with the remaining 3. Add red glitter to the berries and glaze the bow using Ranger's Glossy Accents. when the bow is completely dye (this may have to be left overnight) glue onto your gold medallion '4'                                                                    
Step 3                                                                
Take a cheap list book I bought mine from a local supermarket , most sell them in the stationary department, mine was from Sainburys it was in the sale with 70% off and cost me 29p!!!! Cover the front with black and gold card and decorate with some gold flexi border peel offs.  Stick the gold card on first and then matt and layer the black , then I edged the black with some gold peel off stickers to create a 'frame' for the bows and Sentiment to sit in
 Step 4
Stamp a sentiment onto some white card, I used a penny black wooden stamp called 'beautiful season' I stamped it in 'broken China' blue and then punched out using a 2" circle punch, then I cut out 2 dies , the first was a medium size Spellbinder's iron accents die in Gold and then a medium square Spellbinders die from the Fleur de lis set in pastel blue. layer these up and glue onto your note book .
This project took only a couple of hours to complete, less drying time and looks beautiful. I hope I have inspired you to do something similar it doesn't have to be the same stamp or the same die cut but the idea is to take something boring and make it special.

I plan to make more for my friends and family with their favourite things on the medallions like Dragons, butterflies , shoes and motorbikes !! If you can stamp it ,you can put it on...

Have a good day and don't forget to pop over to Tuesday Alchemy for a chance to win some great digi images and join in the fun, share your ideas and show us your creativity
