Merry & Bright

Hi All! Welcome to the Rose Blossom Blog Hop featuring the Happy, Happy Christmas Album Bundle by Close To My Heart. If you've just arrived from the always-inspiring Lynn Darda's blog, From My Bungalow, you are in the right place. Now on with the inspiration!

During the month of November, Close To My Heart is offering a special that includes a beautiful red My Legacy Album and enough paper, cardstock, and bling and the instructions to create five 2-page 12x12 inch scrapbook layouts. All for 10% off the retail price. This is actually a HUGE amount of product, so we in the Rose Blossom Blog Hop Crew decided to see what else we can make with the leftovers and supplies from our stash. Let's take a look....

I had this cute little heart frame in my stash that I picked up at one of my local craft stores for $1. I decided to use some of the My Crush Christmas pages that I had leftover from the layouts to alter the frame and make it into a home decor piece, complete with a shaker window. The acetate that I used to cover the heart and create the window is from the Happy, Happy Christmas overlays set. I used stamps and dies from the Woodland Wishes set to create a little rustic scene and then finished the whole thing off with jute ribbon from the Rustic Home Ribbon pack. The shaker elements are a combination of the Cool Breeze mix by Lucy's Cards and Attic Findings by 28 Lilac Lane. I also added some White Enamel Accents and Diamond Stickles by Ranger to the trees, snowflakes and heart frame around the window, and shimmer using the CTMH Shimmer Brush to the deer antlers for some extra bling.

Here's a collage of close-ups:
And here is the project once again:

I hope you enjoyed this little winter shaker frame. Now hop on over and see what the amazing Morgan Vogt has for your inspiration at TweetScraps.

Have a wonderfully creative week!


  1. This piece is just soooo cool! I love the shaker window and the way you created depth with the arrangement of your die-cut stamped images.

  2. Oh my gosh! I love this!! There is so much interest in this card and so many things to look at. Perfect!

  3. Omgoodness, this is awesome, Kim! So creative and SO adorable! I love an altered frame! Such a great gift idea. This is the sweetest little woodland scene, and your idea of turning the window opening into a shaker was genius! <3

  4. Gorgeous card!I love how you used different shades of green for the trees, and of course, that acetate heart is just beautiful!
