A Cherry on Top December Blog Hop

Hey friends! I am so excited for the December A Cherry on Top Blog Hop! Hop along and leave a comment on each blog for a chance to win a $10.00 gift certificate to the shop! You should have arrived from Laura’s Blog! If you need to start the hop from the beginning you can check out the full blog hop list down below.

 

This month we are using mood boards as our inspiration.

I pulled inspiration from both boards. I loved the soft pink tones in the first board and falling snow. In the second image I loved the stars so made sure to add some stars on my layout. I went into my stash of products from A Cherry on Top and pulled out some older but just as fabulous stuff! I really loved the pink in the Honey & Spice collection from Heidi Swapp so I used some of it to back a new cut file from Cut To You. I thought the Color Flow paper would be the perfect paper to back all the trees! Using one patter paper to back all the trees at once made it quick and easy to get this file backed!

I also pulled out some of the Crate Paper Snowflake collection which is a beautiful winter collection! There is a specialty paper in this collection that has stars with gold foil on it that I thought would be fun to fussy cut! I used some of these fussy cut stars to back the stars on the trees of my cut file.

I wanted to create something soft for my background so I used some vellum and tore it into strips and adhered down to a piece of white American Crafts Textured Cardstock. I distressed the edges of the vellum with my Tim Holtz scissors and love how it turned out. To add a little extra to the background I used some gold mist to add some splatter to the background.

I pulled out just a few embellishments form the Snowflake collection like these little houses and tucked them in next to the cut file. I added a chipboard tree from the Snowflake collection and some word stickers above my photos! The photos are selfies from my first holiday drink from Starbucks this year! The holiday drinks are always my favorite and it is a new tradition for my daughter and I to go and get one and purchase a new holiday mug!

Thank you so much for hopping with us today! I hope you feel inspired to create with one of the mood boards we shared! If you do create a project using one of the mood boards please tag us on Facebook, Instagram or upload into the Cherry Gallery!  I hope you all have a great week and let me know in the comments if you are Starbucks holiday drink fan!
