♥ Christmas Spool Photo Holder ♥ {JRC#087}

Happy Friday everyone! The weekend is here!! And Christmas is right around the corner! My kids are so excited. They can't wait for the man in red to slide down the chimney and bring them some toys but most of all to spend Christmas Day with Grandma and Grandpa!! I think my oldest would trade in all of his toys just to be with them both everyday! He loves them so much! Are you ready for Christmas?


I was inspired to make this shabby not so little photo holder by the current challenge at the JustRite Inspiration Blog. It is called "Picture This" and it is to use a photo in your creation.


I just LOVE this new Christmas Set by JustRite called Christmas Vintage Labels One. Just adore the vintage look the stamps have. Would just love to spend 1 Christmas back in the 50's! Love that era. And this stamp set brings me there! Love it! One of my fave JustRite Stamp Sets!!



I used an old, large vintage spool that I picked up awhile back on Ebay. I decorated it with some OA Make it Merry papers, pom pom trim, a maroon seam binding (even though it looks black!) and lots and lots of glitter and mica flakes! I wanted it to have an icy look to it.


I stamped that adorable stamp onto some white cardstock, cut out the center and then added some glitter and pearls to it. I then adhered the pictures behind it. I also used the JustRite/Spellbinders Vintage Label and Banner Dies.


I also used some vintage stripe straws, buttons, pearl pins, twine, mini spool and a Pink Paislee Wooden Spool top.


Thanks for stopping by! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. Don't forget to check out my 2 Giveaways I have going on! You have until Dec. 31st for both of them! :)

♥♥ ETA: My heart and my thoughts and prayers go out to the families, friends and relatives of the horrific school shooting in Connecticut.  Such a senseless and tragic event. Just the thought of what those parents are going through, makes me sick. So many little lives lost. God bless them all. Just heart broken.  

hugs...
