~25 Day Until Christmas Cookie Sheet Project!~

Good morning and happy Sunday my friends, 

All week this last week Viva Las VegaStamps has used their
December Daily Plate 1430 to host a giveaway (each day) and 
inspiration project each day, this one is mine! :) 

I used RED ink and the December Daily Plate to create this
countdown to Christmas Magnetic Cookie Sheet. 
Funny story, I actually bought one of these kits about 4 years ago
well...maybe 3, I don't know. But I bought it at Treasured Scrapbooking.
I was not a fan of the actual kit but I wanted the magnets and cookie
sheet so I could create my own. 
The shop has long since shut down and the cookie sheet and magnets sat 
in my room for years, until they asked me to do a December Daily project!
I knew everyone would make these amazing vintage artsy creations
so I decided to make a more bright crazy style with a pop feel to it
just for fun! I painted the cookie sheet with "Almond" paint. 
I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out what felt like 100 circles! LOL
It was actually only like 36 (I needed extra just in case).
I used Jillibean Soup papers, Then I hand embellished each one
by stamping the numbers in RED, then hand cutting them out and 
popping them up on the circle and adding Pink Paislee
dite cut embellishments. It took 1 pack of Pink Paislee die cuts, and
2 sheets of Jillibean Soup paper for the entire project. 
And about 6 hours to make because I kept leaving and coming back to it. 
After I finished each circle I added a magnet to the back. 
(That tore my  nails to bits! Peeling off the sticker paper on those)
And I added some tulle and the title on the bottom using
the same alphabet stickers from the Jillibean soup papers. 
It was a fun project to create and I gave it to a friend. :)

Anyways don't forget to ENTER to win a plate for yourself!!
And see other beautiful projects- they are so amazing~
