1st Christmas

Inspired by the front cover of Craft Stamper from a year ago, I got out my paper clay and made this little decoration for Jack's first Christmas. This kind of decoration could easily be made with salt dough too, that's something I'm definitely going to do with Jack in a few years!
Roll out your dough or clay and cut to your desired shape, I stamped Jack using an alphabet set of stamps I've had lay around for years, I coloured the letters with Derwent Inktense pencils and a bit of water as when dry it's permanent. A bit of glitter around the edges and a holly stamp from Paperartsy and some red beads for berries and a bit of wire to hang.
Hope you like it, if you don't visit my little blog again before Christmas I wish you a lovely Christmas time and a fabtastic 2014!
Big hugs, Sam xxx


  1. You've created a beautiful heirloom for Jack!

    Enjoy your first Christmas with your new grandson!

  2. This is very sweet and Jack would love it if he were a tiny bit older ! (Probably try to eat it, lol )
    Merry Christmas to you too, Sam!

  3. Love this! The way you took it a step further with the holly stamp and berries and that glittery edge makes this extra, extra special.
    Sam, have a wonderful Christmas!
