Guest Designer - Week 27, Day 4

As promised, I have a Christmas layout to share with you today.  I dusted off my Paper Doll Dress-Up cartridge and got to work sprucing up Santa and his reindeer with some Peachy Keen Face stamps.  If you have been wanting to purchase some Peachy Keen Stamps for the first time or add to your collection - this weekend they are having a "Christmas in July" sale July 22nd, 23rd & 24th!  Make sure to check it out!  I have my eye on a set or two...or three.  ;) 
I did have to cut out some images a few times, to create layers, which is a bit time consuming, but definitely worth it in the long run.  
I will use the smaller rectangle for journaling - more than likely I will add another piece of white (or maybe kraft) on top of the pink patterned paper, so that the writing will show up.  It's a little hard to tell in the pictures, but I outlined the stars with diamond Stickles to add a bit of sparkle. 

To attach the twine to the reindeer, all I did was run a line of gel glue and then attach the twine.  I did the same thing to attach the baker's twine to Santa's bag. 
Cricut Paper Doll Dress-Up, George and Basic Shapes, Wild Card & Winter Woodland
Peachy Keen Stamps - Funshine Face Assortment & Critter Faces Set A Medium
Patterned Paper - K & Company "Secret Santa"
Cuttlebug A2 Snowflakes Embossing Folder
(I have a more complete materials list, including cut sizes on my blog.)

Don't forget that this week I will be giving away a set of the 
All you have to do for a chance to win is leave a comment on one or ALL of my posts this week!  If you'd like 10 chances to win, just leave a comment on each of my posts here on the Peachy Keen Stamps blog and a comment on the corresponding post over on my blog - Lauren's Creative !  You do not have to be a follower or email subscriber of either blog to win, but as always - I would love to have you!  I will draw a winner using random.org and the winner will be posted Sunday, July 24th!


Tomorrow I will be participating in the Peachy Keen "Let's Face it Friday" Challenge, so my layout won't post until 10:00 AM CST.
