Creativity with a SPIN!

Okay, So...I told you I was falling in love with this stamp set yesterday! Just see how Stinkin' Cute it is?! and only $5!? Whoot!!

Okay, so I get a little excited....what can I say?! :) I am anxiously awaiting  my order from our new Holiday Gift Guide so I grabbed for our Holiday papers from last year, Pear & Partridge for this card! 

I have actually made 3 cards using this stamp set along with the P&P paper kit...I actually used inspiration from the Laughing Lola Cardmaking Workshop on the Go for the patterns! The other two will be shared soon! 

I adjusted the middle piece and added my very own SPIN element! Did you see the Spin Card I posted yesterday HERE?  

Well....I had planned on creating something similar using the ornament but it was a smidge too big for the opening...So I needed to Improvise! 

I cut one of the rectangular frames from my Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge and used the inside of the frame as my "window"...I traced it, cut it out with an exact-o knife and my window was created!

Then I placed some adhesive on the top and bottom edges of my window and added my ornament with the string.  The adhesive held the string and I covered it with my patterned paper, then I adhered the frame on top of the "less than perfect" window cutting you NEVER see my mangled cutting! :) I am planning on making a tutorial for this soon so hang with me. :)

As you can see I added the same frame to the inside to cover my ugly-ish window cutting....KA-CUUUTE, huh? :)
