Holiday Celebrations - everything but cards

 
 
 


Ready to be festively distressed once again? The Dream Team have been playing with Ranger's Distress Paints, and are ready to inspire you to be distressed as well...paint distressed that is! Dreamweaver Stencils are the perfect choice to mix with all things festively distressed, as nothing shows off color and texture better than great designs. By following our hop and leaving love along the way, you have the opportunity to win a great prize package including five Ranger Distress Paints and five Dreamweaver Stencils! Here's the lineup for today, including our November Guest Designer:


This is also our first posting day featuring our new monthly challenge, "Holiday Celebrations", and for the entire month we will be demonstrating ways to use Beacon Adhesives' entire line of products with Dreamweaver to create special projects in home decor and gifts of love. Here's mine:

I decided to make a note pad holder.  I started with chipboard and the Beacon 3-in-1 Craft Glue.  Cut chipboard to the size needed.  Glue the binding chipboard to back piece of chipboard.  Using book cloth spread the 3-in-1 Craft glue over the book cloth.  Cover spine and a portion of the front and back of book.
 
Emboss front paper cover with holiday stencil.  I used LL468 ornaments.  Stencil gold pigment ink over image.
  Spread Beacon 3-in-1 Craft Glue over the back of the front paper and back paper.  Butt up against book cloth press flat.  Let dry.  Miter corners and spread Beacon 3-in-1 Craft Glue over back of paper.  Fold over.  Glue strip of ribbon over seam in front and back.
 
Using Distress Paint add polka dots to book cloth and back paper cover.  Let dry.  I also covered the top of the note pad.
 
  Adhere a piece of ribbon in the inside front cover and back covers.  Line the book with book cloth that has 3-in-1 glue over the back side.
 
Tape back of note pad and attach inside.  Tie ribbon and your gift is ready for giving!

  3. Love this, Terrece! Did you use the dabber to create the polka dots, or the DW polka dot stencil?

    1. I used the dabbers. But the stencil would have been another great use of Dreamweaver Stencils!
