Festive Friday Blog Hop: November Edition

Welcome once again to the Festive Friday blog hop! On one Friday each month through December, you can hop through our blogs to holiday cards, layouts or home decor items using the amazing new products in the Autumn/Winter 2013 Idea Book. I hope you enjoy this paper "eye candy"! Just one more reason to love Fridays!

If you came here from Diane's blog, The Happy Scrapbooker, then you are on the right track. Your hopping path is circular and you will visit each of us by following the links.

This month, I've decorated a My Creations Star with the Frosted Paper. The first thing I did was ink the outer edges, ridges and valleys of the star with Champagne ink.

Cutting the paper to cover the star was made much easier using a template provided by Close To My Heart. You can access it HERE. Simply print this page on a 8.5" x 11" sheet of paper. You can either cut five pieces of decorative paper using the first pattern and fold each one in half to cover each point of the star. Or you can ten pieces using the second pattern. 

I choose to use the second so I could use all the beautiful prints in the Frosted paper pack. As I cut them out, I laid them out to find the best order. 

The Peace banner is from the Artiste Cricut Cartridge (page 80). To make the centerpiece, I stamped Classy Doily (B1424) twice on Champagne and Frosted Blue cardstock. I trimmed the Champagne image down to the 10-pointed star and the Blue one to the 5-pointed star in the middle. 

I used several layers of foam tape to get the banner and star to be flat. The final touches are a couple Small Sparkle Flourishes and a small flower from the Base & Bling Floral Accents assortment.

Be sure to check back on December 13th for our next installment of the Festive Friday Blog Hop. But for now hop on over to Michelle's Wandering Scissors blog, your next stop in today's hop.
