Purple Cows Blog Hop

Hello all, welcome to Purple Cows' first blog hop!

This year, since we just had a baby like 5 weeks ago, my in-mall shopping time was very limited, I am so sad that I didn't purchase a Hallmark "Baby's First Christmas" ornament for little Ella this year... so, when we were challenged to create a holiday project, I knew instantly what I wanted to make!!!

I took a 4x4 chipboard coaster, covered it with patterned paper (used my Purple Cows 1040 precision trimmer) and ran it through my Cuttlebug for the opening. To make it more elegant, I added the extra white mat frame in the center to separate the photo. I also slipped a piece of acetate on top of the photo so it doesn't get dirty and will last!



Clean, simple, fast - just my style!! Think about all the possibilities with the different festive papers you can use. A bunch of these on the Christmas tree would look lovely! I plan to make more for my girls and my nephews as well. Hope you likes!

The next stop on the hop is Elisa.

Supplies: Purple Cows trimmer, Imaginesce Polar Expression pp, Cuttlebug, Ranger Diamond Stickles
