Holiday Blog Hop Day #5:

Thank you for joining us for day five of the Scrap-Mart Holiday Blog Hop! We'll be celebrating all things Christmas this week and want to thank you for joining us.



This blog hop has been brought to you by some fabulous companies such as:

Each of the generous manufacturers will have prizes for you along the way so be sure to visit and complete the hop each day from Dec. 5th through Dec. 10th to be eligible to win.  If you are just joining in, be sure to head over to the Scrap-Mart blog to start the hop from the beginning.
For my project I chose to do a Rosette Wreath.  The paper strips I used were 12 inches x 3.5 inches.  To vary the size of the rosettes, I simply punched the edge of the lacey layer and then made the center circle smaller before glueing.
To attach my rosettes, I applied Scrap Happy Glue to some precut circles I had handy.  I have one of these on the bottom, middle and top of my wreath.
Supplies Used:
~Ornamental Holiday stamp set
~Scrap Happy Sheer Glue
~Large Celtic Rosette
~You're So Fine Glitter
~Candi/Candi Fix
~Spellbinders Beaded Circle Die

I used the glitter and acetate technique to apply glitter to my Large Celtic Rosette.  Stamp the image on acetate with stazon and then apply glue and glitters to the back side.  Start with your darkest color first. Let dry.

The finished medallion was photo'd against a 12x12 piece of cardstock....so the size is slightly smaller.  I used the large celtic medallion which I cut the outer border off of and used the largest Spellbinders Beaded Circle Spellbinders die.    I embellished it with Candi/Candi Fix. 

If you used the smaller celtic circle stamp you could downsize the medallion size.
Here you can see the stamped details of the Ornamental Holiday set.
We hope you've enjoyed the hop so far and are inspired to create more holiday goodness this year!
