As the clock strikes 12...

Hello all!
It's late Friday night over here...
I should be partying away with my friends
(or at least be spending some quality time with my hubby!)
...and what am I doing?

Yes, I'm working away on my blog post.
Wow, how dedicated am I? lol...

No, seriously, I'm just so excited that I was able to play with the latest SVG Cuts kit right away,
I just wanted to share!
It's simple - nothing out of the box or anything,
but love classy look to this
(kinda reminded me of the graduation project that I did a while back!)

Anyway - here it is!


I used a regular black cardstock, but wanted to add some shimmer,
so I sprayed it with Mister Huey's Calico Shine spray!
Love the look that it gave!


I just clumped all the elements of NEW YEAR'S EVE together in this one top hat!
Glitter, sparkles, clock (from Tim Holtz), feathers, black and silver, stars... and of course, photo props!
I just kinda clumped all the things together into a 'corner' - it all adds to the fun!


Don't you just love the stamps, too?
Aren't they perfect?
It's from November 2012 Kit of the Month (So into you) from Unity Stamp Company!


I enlarged this hat
(I believe I did it at 13.65" wide - I broke the elements into separate pieces in order for it to fit on paper) and decreased the sizes of the photo props to use as an embellishment.

Thank goodness I had all the glittery, shimmery embellishments and papers!
These are the times when I'm so thankful I have this shopping addiction problem
and love to stock every supply up! lol.

Anyway, this is super easy with this kit! and it's a free kit this week with purchase of $9.98 or more!


And.... they are having an amazing 12 days of Christmas and giving some Tim Holtz Stamp 2 cut sets away!
Go and enter!
Hurry, hurry!
(oh, and good luck!)

Alright everyone!
I'm off to grocery shop tomorrow and start prepping for Christmas Eve!
I'm hosting the dinner with families from both sides, so that should be fun!

I'll be back to share our this year's Christmas letter with you tomorrow!
Have a beautiful, magical day everyone!


  1. You are amazing, this is amazing!

  2. I always enjoy your projects and this hat is fabulous.

  3. So cool! What the perfect decor item to have around for New Year's! I love every inch of it! The Unity Stamps were the perfect accent! Love the feathers too!
