JustRite 12 Weeks of Christmas Blog Hop #3

Note: Edited to add direct links below.

Welcome to JustRite Stampers’ newest Wednesday feature, 12 Weeks of Christmas Blog Hops #3! Every Wednesday up until Thanksgiving some of your favorite designers will be joining some of the JustRite design team for a series of Christmas blog hops, showcasing JustRite’s entire Christmas Collection of stamps! So mark your calendars for Wednesdays at 9am Central for great Christmas gift, card & project ideas, starting at the JustRite Inspiration blog!

Today I was in the mood to use some non-traditional Christmas colors. I pulled out a few papers from Cosmo Cricket Mitten Weather and let the aquas and purples inspire my creation. I used JB-08765 Old Fashioned Christmas and made a shaker out of the center. I started to use Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch #86, but I ended up leaving off a couple of panels before I was finished.

Here's a close-up of the shaker:
