I was very excited to be asked to join this blog hop. I have purchased many items from Scrap-Mart - their prices are very reasonable and the delivery is super fast. I decided to make my yearly Christmas candle as my project for this hop. I followed the very easy instructions found here at Splitcoast.
**EDIT** I have received lots of comments regarding how to stamp onto the candle. The process is not done by stamping directly onto the candle. The stamping is done onto tissue paper and then applied to the candle by using a heat gun.
My stamped image is from the "Vintage Christmas" set by JustRite Stampers using Memento Tuxedo Black and Memento Lady Bug. The date was made using the Curlz Numbers (JustRite).
Below is the list of blog hoppers participating today. Be sure to check each one out and leave a comment. You never know which one just might have a "surprise".
