Alaska Blog Hop: Gingerbread Love


Welcome aboard the Alaska Blog Hop — a monthly extravaganza of Stampin’ Up peeps working their way toward a fabulous cruise to Alaska!

I had this fantastical post written for you to enjoy and then realized I had mixed up two different projects!  Yikes! On to gingerbread and hearts!!

I have been on a wall art kick lately and came across this frame gathering dust in the basement.  My kids think I have way too many picture frames.  Little do they know that there is some part of my brain always thinking of ways to use all those frames!

Anyhow, I digress.  The frame is for an 8×10 project — a little bigger than I normally use.  I wanted to use the cookie cutter builder punch (who wouldn’t — it is just so stinking cute!)   But I wasn’t sure how to fill all that space.  The hearts just seemed a natural match for these snazzy little gingerbread men with their colorful bowties and Santa!

To add a little texture, I embossed the hearts.  And that gorgeous designer series paper looks as good on this project as it would used on a card or as gift wrap

Santa and his gingerbread buddies spread some holiday love!

I loved the way this turned out and can’t wait to figure who I give it to for Christmas.  Hopefully they will act surprised if they already saw it here!

You may continue on your voyage to the next project by clicking one of the names below. Have a fabulous day and thanks for stopping by.  Hope to see you again next month!
