If you win, pick the Big Swirl stencil!

It was my FAVORITE stencil from the release, and was so much fun to play with! I only shared one project in the hop (to keep things moving), but I’ve got lots of other ideas in the works for it, and the other stencils I received. 

I was so excited to pair the stencil with my favorite holiday images – retro ornaments! And, when I used the Festive Berries Distress Oxide and saw that the red was going to be on the lighter side, I knew that I’d be able to pull in Mid-Century Modern colors with the ornaments to make the design fun and playful!

Time to hop along!

Visit  and comment on each YouTube video to get lots of chances at those ACLD Gift Cards! I’m the top of the hop, so start at MY VIDEO and hop on from there. Creating a blog post was not a requirement for the hop, so it’s best to hop over to YouTube now, leave a comment for me and hop along!

Please note that the hop starts at 9AM US Central time, so some videos may not yet be live. BUT, you have until Oct 22nd to leave comments, so check back later today, or later this week to finish up your viewing and commenting!

Good Luck!
