Welcome to my fun little site. My name is Sheila, you may know me as Sassy Lady. I am a Chicago transplant to the Birmingham, Alabama area. I like to say I am southern by the grace of God! My blog was started to share with family and friends my love for scrapbooking and of course special moments with those around me. Being an avid scrapper I also dabble in card making as I love to remember people and their special times with a card. Click Here To Read More!

Lisa from Lisa's Craft Room here for another month, thank you Sheila :) I saw Angie at Chic n' Scratch make these adorable wreaths and thought that I would make one for my mom for Christmas. It's not the traditional Christmas colors but I wanted something different. So here it is. I think now everyone incorporates different colors for Christmas anyway :) As a matter of fact the patterned papers I used are from a stack called Valentine from Recollections. So, it would make the perfect Valentine wreath too.
You start off with a 10" wreath form, I got mine at Joann's, it's white. The strips are 12" x 1 1/2". I used 21 strips. I used my ATG gun as the adhesive and wrapped each one around the form, securing them together. Once I was done with that, I tied a ribbon to hang it. I cut notches out with scissors, I started off using my square punch, but it's a 1" so it was a tad small, but the scissors worked fine. I used blue cardstock from a pack called The Christmas cardstock matstack from DCWV and punched 3 scallops out with a 2 3/8" punch, and the same cardstock in white for the circles, punch size 1 3/4". The punches are from Stampin' Up. I stamped them with the letters JOY in Pink Passion, the letters and ink are also from Stampin' Up.
So there you have it, a cute fun wreath to hang up for the holiday season. I love this wreath, because you can make it easy and for any holiday.
Thank you for stopping by, your comments are very much appreciated. Thank you again Sheila for having me for another month.
