AnnaBelle October Blog Hop - Round For Christmas


Hello and welcome to the AnnaBelle Stamps October Blog Hop.

The Belles will be sharing some early Christmas ideas using ABS Round For Christmas, a sweet little set of ornament stamps with Christmas sentiments.


The Blog Hop starts and finishes at the AnnaBelle Stamps Blog. If you arrived here from Andrea's Blog you're on the right track! When you leave me you hop over to Kylie's blog.  Leave a message on each of the blogs before Sunday 12pm and you could win this lovely little Christmas set. 

Andrea is also offering this set as the "Deal of The Week"with a 20% discount. This deal will run from 4pm today for one week until our next challenge on Friday.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


For my project I ran up a very quick little jiffy bag in muslin on my sewing machine. I've used three of the images to add some Christmas colour. 
 Stamped to the fabric and just heat set using the iron and two sheets of white paper :).
ABS green/white ribbon to pull the bag closed.


The tag is made up of a large die cut ornament (CBD 003) which I embossed using a Swiss dots EF. One more of the small ornament stamps, which fit the small die and a sentiment strip from ABS Decorated Christmas. Some red/white twine attach this to the bag.



I think I'll make these for my Christmas table.  Add some festive treats and loop to each chair!

Thanks for dropping by, enjoy the hop...................
