Hop til you Drop

Happy Thursday! It's release day over at the Digichick again and as always, new releases are on sale Thursday and Friday, so be sure to check it out. Today I'm also participating in a blog hop with the creative team over at Kelleigh Ratzlaff Designs. Kelleigh just released the adorable Drop Ornament Template, and I had so much fun playing with this template.

For my ornament, I started with an utterly gorgeous new digital kit by Sugarplum Paperie called Heart of Thankfulness. You really must take a peek - it kind of stole my heart when I first saw it! The pink paper just makes me want to pet it, it's so pretty! The papers are clipped to the drop ornament template (although there's a pdf lines only version if you'd rather just print on your own paper), and the brown swirlies are an element from the same digi kit. Once I'd printed everything out, I embossed the Peace on Earth and Joy to the World sentiments from Winter Wonder in Chocolate Chip on all four center squares. Then I stamped one of the small snowflakes randomly in Ranger Distress Tattered Rose on each of the triangle pieces. Then I trimmed, scored, folded and inked up the edges with some Vintage Photo distress ink. Then it was just a matter of looping a ribbon through the top before closing up the sides with sticky strip, then adding a fancy wide bow to the front. Easy peasy, and another holiday gift is done! :)

Okay, that's all for today! Thanks so much for stopping by! Be sure to check out the other fun projects from Kelleigh's team, as well as leave a comment on Kelleigh's blog for a chance to win a free template!
