Have a Cool Yule Recap

Hello Crafty Sprout friends!! JESS here with one of the last few posts of 2011. The year is finishing up and us Crafty Sprout gals are taking a challenge break. Yay!!! Lol. We will be back with a new challenge mid January.

But since we didn't want to leave you all with an inactive blog until then, we are bringing you a Recap Event for the next few days. Our event is a reminder of all the Awesome Stamp Sets Crafty Sprouts has to offer and what you can do with them. Plus, some of the gals will be offering up mini blog candies. So lets get on with the show :)

I'm here bringing you a recap of Have A Cool Yule. I know that Christmas has just passed but because it just passed, we now need a place to record all the wonderful memories. I created a paper bag mini (one of the few that Ill be making).

I like this format because it can be kept simple or you can add on to it. This mini took several hours to make (but because I sometimes sit there and stare into space thinking if I should add an embellishment. lol) But if you have a paper line that you really like and you just want that to shine (no images or embellishments) then you can create the mini in about 30 minutes (give or take 10-15 min).

I originally was going to keep it simple and straight forward but then I saw the opportunity to add pockets and tags and I said, "Sure why not, etc etc etc" Ummmm, my etcs aren't appropriate here. Lol. These pages are the middle section of the mini.

Here are some of the tags that come with the mini. All images are from Simply B Stamps. I used the complete Jude and the Rockers Christmas line. Aren't they all SUPER ADORABLE in their footie pajamas. Squeal!!!! I just want to pinch their cheeks. This Christmas line is by far my fave from Jude and the Rockers. I highly recommend you hop on over to pick up all 6. The quality is awesome and you'll get a lot of use out of them.

Of course I needed to use Crafty Sprouts signature barcode stamp for the back of my book. It gives it that finishing touch. Now I just gave you a few peeks at what is inside my mini. You must hop on over to my blog, My Scrap Diary, to see the rest of it. Plus, I'm putting together a mini candy for you with a variety of Christmas papers.

This set is currently sold out but it will be available again. You can hop on over to the Crafty Sprouts Shop to see all the other sets  available.

Thanks for stopping by and make sure you come back tomorrow to see what my teamie KC has for you.
