Stampin' Celebration #30

Isn't this a pretty inspiration piece this week at Stampin' Celebration?  I'd love to attend a dinner party that looked like this.  :-)  For the challenge this week, I made some little magnets.  

As I've been decorating for Christmas and putting everything out, I had the memory of my Mom always having cute little magnets on the fridge for different holidays throughout the year.  I especially loved the Christmas magnets.  When we go to my parents' house this year, I'll have to check and see if she still puts them up.  :-)  Anyway, so it was from this memory that came the idea to make these little magnets.  

I started with a 2" by 2" piece of Magnet Sheet (p 205 of the catalog), peeled off the backing (that side not shown in the picture) and adhered the Perfect Plum card stock.  Then I peeled off one side of the backing of the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet (p 17 of the Holiday Mini Catalog) and stuck it to the the card stock. 

At that point I ran everything together through the Big Shot with the Scallop Squares Duo die to get the little scallop square.  The I peeled off the remaining Multipurpose Adhesive sheet backing and poured Dazzling Diamonds Glitter over the top.  That gives the awesome sparkle.  :-)  

The snowflakes came from the Northern Frost Decorative Strip (also in the Mini Catalog) and Whisper White card stock run through the Big Shot.  The last thing I added were a few Rhinestones for a little more bling.  

These were a simple project to make. . . . so simple that I think I may make some more with my children--letting them customize a bit.  Maybe we'll even make some for Grandma to add to her collection.  ;-)  These would also make great gifts or stocking stuffers.   

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Make sure to head over to Stampin' Celebration to see what the other members of the Design Team are up to this week!
