Hello Everyone!

Welcome to My Craft Spot's Winter Stamp Release Party Sneak Peak #4!

All week long, the My Craft Spot DT will be featuring Sneak Peeks from ONE of 5 NEW Stamp Sets and EIGHT NEW Twine Colors! Then on Saturday, November 5th, we will have a Stamp Release Party Blog Hop! There will be TONS of prizes along the way, so you won't want to miss it!

For today's sneak peek, I used the "All Hearts come home for Christmas" sentiment from the NEW "Merry Christmas" Stamp Set.

I fell in LOVE with the sentiment as soon as I saw it and got inspired to create a CHRISTMAS HEART project. However, it didn't turn out EXACTLY how I planned it. I wasn't able to find a HEART ornament, so I resorted to using a regular Christmas ornament.

I filled my Christmas Ornament with scraps left from the November Artful Delight Kit that I've been using all week to create my projects. The scraps were sized differently, rolled using a pencil and then inserted into the ornament. I added a bow made from My Craft Spot's NEW "White" Seam Binding.

To hold the Christmas Ornament, I turned back to my All-In-One Box. It measures roughly about 2 5/8"W x 4"H x 2 5/8"D, it could hold just about anything you would like.

Using the November Artful Delight Kit, I cut the box from the Bazzill "Parakeet" Cardstock and then adhered some of the Prima North Country "Forest Notes" to each side.

The ornament hangs from a piece of the NEW "Rusty Red" Flat Seam Binding from My Craft Spot.

To finish my Ornament Gift Box, I cut a scalloped oval from the Cricut Storybook Cartridge and created a quick and simple tag. I stamped the "To/From" sentiment using the NEW "Merry Christmas" Stamp Set from My Craft Spot. Using some "Blueberry" Bakers Twine - available at My Craft Spot - I tied the tag to the box.

After cutting my All-In-One Box from a 12x12 sheet of Bazzill "Parakeet" Cardstock from the November Artful Delight Scrapbook Kit, I was left with exactly enough cardstock to create a matching card.

The card is based on the Viva la Verve October Week 2 Sketch.

I LOVED how the card sketch included a HEART. I used two chipboard Hearts from my stash and added "Blueberry" Twined button.

I hope you have enjoyed my CHRISTMAS HEART project for My Craft Spot's Winter Release Party Sneak Peek #4. To see more "Sneak Peeks" of the "Merry Christmas" Stamp Set - available for purchase on Saturday, November 5th, please visit My Craft Spot Blog. You don't want to miss it!
