Prince of Peace

It's November 24th and that means I've created over 30 Christmas scrapbook pages and hundreds (probably close to 300!) Christmas cards.  I started creating Christmas projects in July!  So, by this time of year I'm looking to expound my creativity and come up with something new, fresh and modern. 

(Remember, you can click on any of the pictures and enlarge them.)
 I used the Festive Flurries bundle (which includes the coordinating Framelits at a 15% discount), teamed it up with a few other stamp sets and lots of fun, punched circles to come up with this layout.  I used the White Gel Pen to create faux stitching 'connecting' the circles together. 

For me, the "hit" of this page is this amazing single stamp called "Prince of Peace", only available until January 31st.  I found the words fitting, not just for Christmas.  I can create sympathy and thinking of you cards with it, too....making it an extraordinary buy at $6.95.

The splattered background was created with my new, favorite stamp set "Gorgeous Grunge".  the pieces in that set make for great backgrounds!
