CCMC Saturday Blog Hop – Homespun Christmas


Ahhh, Thanksgiving is over!  We had a housefull…12 adults and 2 babies…but what a blast!  LOTS of great food and thankful that everyone pitches in and brings something!  Here’s a cute picture of two of the grands, my youngest son’s kids.  Wish it turned out a little better and not so grainy.  My brother and I are about the same age apart as Quinn and Brody are…and I’m sure I remember a similar picture of the two of us together with me almost strangling him around the neck, too!  lol!



But, it’s time for the Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop!  This week’s theme is “Homespun Christmas”.  I love the traditional look of pines and pine cones, so that is what I chose to represent my homespun Christmas.  The plaids in the Warmth & Cheer Designer Paper Pack work perfectly!



Here are the details:

  • The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Crumb Cake cardstock, scored at 4-1/4 and folded.
  • On top is a 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Whisper White cardstock.
  • A 3-3/4 x 5 piece of Warmth & Cheer Designer Paper selected, then a 1-1/4 piece cut off one end and flipped to the reverse side, then adhered to the front of the Whisper White cardstock.
  • Gold Bakers Twine was wrapped around 3 times to hide the seam.
  • The label from Christmas Pines was stamped with Cherry Cobbler on Crumb Cake cardstock and the Christmas Blessings greeting with Chocolate Chip inside, then hand-cut.
  • The pine branches were cut from Old Olive cardstock, the mistletoe from Whisper White and the pine cones from Crumb Cake and Chocolate Chip cardstocks and adhered together on the front.
  • A bow was cut from Gold Glimmer Paper and added to the top of the pine cones.


What do you think?  Did I fulfill the Homespun challenge?  OK…next up is Mary Brown, go check out what she did with the challenge this week!
