UStamp with Dawn and Friends!! Up On The Roof Top 2011 World Showcase Holiday Blog Hop.



Welcome to the UStamp with Dawn and Friends!! Up On The Roof Top 2011 World Showcase Holiday Blog Hop.

If you have been following the Blog Hop from the beginning, you have just been wowed by Julia Leece's Joy Frame and card, wasn't that a perfect way to share your family photo??
If you are just joining the Blog Hop, no problem, as you can start at any point. All the Designer's Blogs are linked together so you will be able to see ALL the FABULOUS projects we have for you.
My project  is a VERY simple tree decoration project using the fantastic Stampin up fabric. Fabric is VERY new to us here in the UK and I know a lot of my fellow paper crafters here are a bit "scared" of sewing projects. I have made this as simple as possible - honestly any one could attemp to make these fantastic decorations!!





I have used seembinding, buttons and linen thread as embellishments.
