Christmas-Travaganza-Day 28 with Barb

Hey everyone! 

It's Barb here from Enjoying Life and I am so excited to share a fun little project with you today for A Blog Named Hero's Christmas-Travaganza!


When Mary Dawn and Linda asked me to be a part of this fun event, I was thrilled to play along and wanted to come up with something other than a card. So when I was decorating my house for Christmas a few weeks ago, I came across some cute door hangers, which I display every year, and said, "Hey, I could CREATE one of those!" :) I tried a few different designs and ended up really loving this one! 


And here it is hanging on my door.


 All you need to do is cut your paper so it measures 8.5" x 3" and die-cut a circle near the top. Then decorate it anyway you like! I used Broken China, Faded Jeans and Stormy Sky Distress Inks, then flicked some Picked Fence Distress Stain onto the background with a paintbrush. Then I used the adorable Sleeping Snowman from Hero Arts, colored and cut him out with the matching die. The snowbank was torn from white paper and run through my Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots embossing folder. A bit of Frosted Lace Stickles was added across the top of the snowy hill.

Now I know you've all finished decorating long ago, but you could save this post, bookmark it, or put it in your faves, so you can view it again for next year. You could also make these for other special occasions like Easter, Valentine's Day, Halloween, etc.

I want to thank Linda and Mary Dawn for inviting me to take part in this awesome event! It sure has been fun! :)

Thanks for joining me today - I know just how busy you are this time of year! I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas! :)
