Pretty in Pink

Hello crafting friends. Here we are at the end of another week - I am looking forward to a "nothing planned" weekend, how about you? Of course for me it means more time in my craft room and according to our weather forecast, we are expecting a major weather event with heavy rain, thunderstorms and flash flooding around our region, so I'll be staying safe and sound indoors crafting.

The project I'm sharing with you all today, comes courtesy of Samantha Clayton from Mixed Up Craft, just click on her blog name and there you'll find information on how to make it. It's become a popular decoration to make and there are quite a few of us Stampin' Up! demonstrators out there putting our own stamp on it, (pardon the pun), so thank you Sam.

I've made mine in Pink Pirouette and Crumb Cake and I think in this combination of colours, it would be perfect for a "Baby's First Christmas" decoration. Change the main colour to Soft Sky or Pool Party for a baby boy. I used the smallest stitched square framelit for the centre panels, leaving the pink ones plain and embossing the crumb cake ones with the Oh My Stars TIEF.
I die-cut some little stitched stars from the Trim Your Stocking thinlits out of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper and added these to the pink pirouette panels along with some rhinestones.

I stamped the sweet little stars from the 'Wood Words' stamp set, above and below the centre panels in Pink Pirouette and Crumb Cake. To finish off the decorating I have used some NEW ribbon and bakers twine from the new Occasions Catalogue, which customers will be able to order from January 3rd. I have left the top of the ornament open and it has plenty of room inside for some little chocolates or lollies for older children, or for the adults some lovely jewellery could be popped inside! I have a list of all the products I've used at the end of this post.

Thanks for stopping by today.
