Make it Monday – Papertrey Ink # 302

Now somebody is really trying to tell me something.  The Make it Monday challenge has featured the use of a wreath for the last three weeks in a row.  I have mentioned two things regarding this.  The first is that I do not have any type of wreath stamp or die from Papertrey Ink and the second is that I like a challenge.   But three weeks in a row, people…………………now that is a challenge.

Looking through my dies once again, while whispering the mantra, “what can I adapt?”, I came across the heart frame from Shakers and Sprinkles. Check, I will use that and somehow make it look Christmasy.  I also didnt have any ribbon from Papertrey but found some holly ribbon from May Arts, that I thought would start to transform the wreath into a Christmas theme.  A little bouquet of greenery from Spruce and Sprigs was an easy choice.  Finally I found a little sentiment in Post & Parcel that would tie in Christmas with the heart shaped wreath.

The background is a 3D  woodgrain embossing folder from Stampin Up that is just remarkable in its depth and detail.  Voila! Done!

  2. You adapted well, Deb. Love your pretty wreath and card, especially that little tag with the sentiment. Great job!

  8. Thank you Stephanie! Actually I exaggerated it was two wreaths in 3 weeks. The middle week used a Papertrey mat which I also didn’t have. I neglected to fact check my post……….me bad.
