Holiday Time for Riley and Company!

So who loves shopping the dollar bins at your favorite stores?
I do I do! LOL!  I am addicted to Michael's dollar bins
and do stop ever so often at Target's. Who loves
sneek peeks?  I do I do!

So how about some quick and easy Riley projects with my
latest dollar finds? I will tell you which store to grab the
dollar items at and of course just nab all 10 Riley stamps
Thursday night and you are ready to do some quick and
easy holiday cards and ornaments!
This set is absolutely awesome.

For those of you who do not have a Michaels or Target
nearby - just look at your favorite dollar store for photo
cards to be filled, small colorful frames and ornaments
with either a photo opening or a flat surface.

So come along with me this week while I show you
some fun ideas and of course some really cool cards
to make if you have a bit more time.

First up - Sledding Riley and Snowball Riley.

























Oh so cute and oh so simple done in bright colors.
Grab some photo cards from Michaels (8 cards for $1)
and some photo frame ornaments from Target (just $1!)

All you need to do is cut some shapes for the ornament
and a 4x5 card for the photo frame.
I actually covered up the photo opening in the ornament.

Add some ribbon to the frame so it can hang up,
a bow at the bottom and the all important
Star Dust Stickles after you color your stamped images
and you are good to go.

Super simple with no need for patterned paper
or paint for ornaments.

Hope this gives you a idea to start with.
Stay tuned more to come! This set of
stamps is so versatile for Christmas!
These stamps are not just for cards. :-)

Enjoy!
Therese
