Deck the Halls!

That's right! It's never too early to start creating for the holidays! I know you will be delighted with JustRite's release today, Deck the Halls! I used this set along with the new Christmas Mini Sentiment Set to create my ornament pictured above! Deck the Halls is a JustRite Cling Set featuring 22 stamps and can be used on any acrylic stamper. Another feature is this set coordinates with Spellbinders Heirloom dies along with JustRite Charm dies. JustRite Christmas Mini Sentiments are wonderfully designed with a variety of fonts and sayings. There are several that can be utilized outside the holiday season, Shop till you Drop, A Gift for You, From Our Family, Let it Snow, Comfort and Joy, Best Wishes would be perfect for birthday tags, winter wishes, or an addition to special image on your creation! I'll show you a packaging idea tomorrow using a couple of these sentiments! Spellbinders Heirloom Ornament Dies #3, #4, #5 are used to cut the shapes for my ornament. I also utilized a Classic Round Circle Small #2 die for the floating ornament center. Cutting two of each allows an identical backing to the ornament and creates a more finished look. I adhered 1/8" scortape down the center of each die cut to secure the silver thread. After that step I applied tacky glue to the edges and adhered the pieces together.
Here is that scrumptious 1/4" ringlet trim I love using for the edges of my creations. I apply my 1/4" scortape to the back and peel as I go around the outer edge placing top edge on the front side of the ornament and the bottom trim edge on the back side. This trim is very pliable allowing easy application. Silk ribbon used, ScorTape and trim are all found at The Stamp Simply RIBBON Store!

I love how this ornament turned out! It can easily be placed on the tree, hang from a wreath center, or tied on that special gift package! Be sure to take a look at how the following JustRite designers are Decking the Halls!
