Club Scrap November Artist Challenge

We LOVE the Holidays in my house!
The kids began counting down the days until Thanksgiving as soon as November started.
So imagine my delight when Karen told me the November Artist Team Challenge would be to use two of the past Club Scrap Holiday stamps sets.

The first set is the I'll Be Gnome for Christmas UM/Stencil Set. Can I tell you how obsessed I am with Gnomes. I begged Club Scrap for a Gnome set and not only did they create one set of Gnomes.... They created TWO Gnome kits!
The first kit was created in 2013 and it was called "Gnome for the Holidays" You can find the first set of Gnome stamps HERE. This set was released in 2014 and featured  the adorable Mrs. Gnome. I especially love the ornament stamp with the different decorative options. The included stencil makes coloring in the images a snap!


The second stamp set we were challenged to use was the Homemade Holiday Unmounted Rubber.
This is such a sweet set of holiday stamps. I really like the variety in this set and the fact that it is so versatile. The images are not only wonderful for the holidays but are great for any winter projects!


For the challenge I decided to make the kids Christmas Memento Holders!
This was my favorite 2105 Club Scrap Retreat projects and I really wanted to have the kids keep track of their favorite Christmas memories this year.

 
. I used the solid papers from the Homemade Holiday kit. I wanted a text weight patterned paper to match so I crated one using  the craft text weight paper from Retreat 2014.

 
I stamped the snowflake stamp using Club Scrap ink pads in Amethyst, Ruby and Sapphire.


I used the Dazzle stickers from the Club Scrap Constellations Deluxe Kit to embellish the stamps.


What is great about this project is it gives you tons of options for memory keeping. There are pockets and pull outs and envelope storage. The possibilities are endless.



 
I also made another Memento Holder using the I'll Be Gnome for Christmas stamps but you will have to return on Monday November 30,2015 to see that. That is the day I will be kicking off my
 
Elf Count Down to Christmas
 
Each day until Christmas I will post a daily quote from the movie ELF, along with my Holiday craft projects. Every day you visit and leave a comment gets you another entry into my Holiday Give Away.
