A Waltzingmouse Christmas, Day 4

Back for day 4 of a Waltzingmouse Christmas, and today we are to feature holiday home decor projects!  I cheated a bit on this one, eek!  I made a little chalkboard mason jar using the jar from Candy Jar Christmas Fillers, and the lid from Jam Filler-Jar Packed (both cut with the new Jar Essentials Die set!).  The cloth lid image is stamped with Gingham & Co. and the pine bough is from Festive Foliage.


The sentiment inside is from Alpine Christmas and the sweet little leaf border is from another of my all time favorite Waltzingmouse sets My Heart.


THEN.....
I actually bought a mason jar and painted it with glass chalkboard paint to match!


I actually tried to write on it with chalk, but it didn't come out as clear or as "fancy" as I liked ( I really hate my writing)!  So I made a "cocoa" stencil from cardstock using PTI's Headline Alphabet dies.  The letters are colored with a white chalk paint marker.


So that's where the cheating part came in...the actual home decor/gift packaging ended up without any stamping, please forgive me :)!!

While this wraps up the last day of featured projects, tomorrow night is the Waltzingmouse Stamps Pajama Party hosted by Claire!  You can get started on your projects and all of the information is HERE. Claire will also be posting her new Bedtime Story (sketch challenge) then.

Just wanted to say thank you SO much for visiting this week and for the lovely comments that just made me smile from ear to ear!  Looking forward to more Christmas projects these next two months, my favorite ones to make all year!

Off you go for some amazing inspiration from these ladies...
