Girly Girl Sneak Peek

Hello and welcome.  Today I am sharing part of my daughter's Christmas gift (yes, it's safe to post here she doesn't subscribe) using a new Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Company set called Girly Girl.  Since my daughter loves to take hot chocolate or coffee to school with her on the really, really cold mornings here in the Central Valley, so she's used a lot of my old work mugs.  So I decided it would be really nice if she had her own hot mug that  no one else in the family could try to claim was theirs.

First, I took a $1 store thermal mug, removed the "decorate yourself" insert and placed it onto MFP white card stock to use as a pattern, traced and cut out the "new" blank insert.  Then I stamped my images and sayings in memento tuxedo black ink, colored with prismacolor markers and spritzed rose ink over and around the sayings.  The final touch was adding some ice stickles to one of the purses for a little extra sparkle.  Here's a look at the rest of the sides of my daughters thermal mug.
This thermal mug was so easy to make and only took about 10-15 minutes at most.  It's perfect for stocking stuffers, Christmas and birthday gifts, or even a just because gift.  Why not try making one today for yourself?
Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great day and don't forget to stop by for the Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Company blog hop starting on Tuesday, December 18th.
