Kiyomi Christmas

Hi there! Just getting in the mood for Christmas! It's Christmas in July afterall, and I know everyone is starting to think about what they are going to do for Christmas cards and gifts this year... Last year, I taught a series of classes called the Christmas Card Club. It was a monthly class beginning in the summer that featured a variety of Christmas or Holiday themed projects. Well, students have been asking if I'll be teaching this class again this year, so I'm busy putting together some ideas for my first class. I always thought Kiyomi's pose looked like she was reaching for something. Well, on the original design, she is reaching for the butterfly, but I changed it up a bit and had Kiyomi reaching to put the star on the top of a Christmas tree. Just wanted to show you the versatility of this stamp- you are only limited by your imagination! To give it some asian flair, I stamped the Lawn Fawn pine tree onto some green washi paper for a fun look. I love how it turned out! Found the stool stamp by CC's Designs and the Merry Christmas sentiment at Island Scrapbooking. Michele is starting to carry various sentiments that are perfectly sized for card makers. Plus they are all one piece, so its easy peasy to adhere to your card. Love it! Here's a close up of Kiyomi... If you live in Hilo and would like to take this class, check out the Island Scrapbooking blog for upcoming class info.
