Waiting for Christmas...

Hi there, this is Titbelsoeur today !
I love to use books for home deco, especially for Christmas. Do you remember my Nativity scene in a book from last year (here) ?

Here is a foretaste : little card, season's greetings from Christmas Greetings # 1 on a pinecone :

Then I divided my book on 3 thirds, stamped a Best wishes quote from the same Christmas Greetings # 1  set and glued it with a Christmas image on the last page of the 1st third :

then glued a Girl by Fireplace  card on the first page on the 3rd third of the book :

the 2nd third was folded to make a pine tree, you will see how I did it here (tried to find a short video for you), and here it is :

And, as a bonus, here is my last experiment of the year : how to embellish basic baubles with Artistic Stamper's stamps ?
Just stamping some snowflakes with white acrylic paint ! I am not very gifted at such practicals, but I couldn't resist to give you the idea !

I hope my experiments will inspire you and I am looking forward to reading your comments !
Thank you for visiting, à tout bientôt !

I especially love the book project...hope you don't mind, but I think I have to make one of these (but doubt it will be as gorgeous as yours!). Thank you for the inspiration!

I'm completely in love with your altered book - utterly gorgeous with those red accents against the vintage sepia, and great images. Fabulous! And what a great idea with the baubles too - so simple, but so effective! Thanks for all the inspiration.
