For those who are new to the Stamp Review Crew, here is a little background. We are an international group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators that gets together on the first and third Mondays of every month to do a blog hop. Each hop features a single stamp set to give you loads of inspiration for that set! The hops are archived at the Stamp Review Crew blog, and you will be able to click through each hop at any time, going directly to the posts for that hop whenever you want! And you can click on the banner of this post to go to the master blog roll for this hop also.
If you are following along in order, you just arrived from Michelle Roberts' blog. I am certain that she has come up with a bunch of goodies for us!
But first, a little story!
We had 2 trees fall down over our driveway this week. One was a very large spruce tree. Well, perfect timing, I say! We cut off the top 15 feet or so and we have a fresh Christmas tree. Then, we cut up the rest for firewood. We have a wood stove as our heat source. Yeah for warmth! Part of cutting the tree up for firewood was limbing the tree. Which left me with loads of material to make evergreen wreaths! SO, I learned a new skill. And I gave wreaths to several family members! I still have limbs left, and after I finish this post, I will be making more wreaths 😎 The picture above is of the wreath I made for my mom. I took her to the Dollar Tree to pick out decorations for the wreath, then I hung it up outside her front door! (The pine cones are from my yard).
Swirly Scribbles, Pretty Pines, and Wood Crate die sets were used to create that little wreath. Pine Planks embossing folder was thrown in there, and I used the Scallop Tag Topper and Triple Banner punches to create the tag.
And now, Holly Krautkremer! I can't wait to see what layering genius move she has come up with this time 😊
