You know me, I love to use stamps on my layouts, so I couldn't wait after I got my stamps to make this layout below!

Supplies: Pattern Paper-Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker (Gingerbread Land collection); Die Cuts and Stickers-Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker (Gingerbread Land collection); Stamps-Stamps of Life; Twine-The Twinery Baker's Twine; Ink-Memento and Jenni Bowlin; Embossing Pen-Zig; Embossing Powder-American Crafts and Ranger; Adhesive-Scotch ATG, Fabri-Tac and Scrapbook Adhesives

I stamped the snowman several times and paper pieced him together.  I used an embossing pen on the snow hill and then used white embossing powder on it for snow.  I also stamped the holiday lights and embossed some of them in silver and some in pink and then strung them with the fabby Twinery twine!  

The stamp set I used was Joy2Christmas, so perfect with the papers and the picture I had!  

Here is more about The Twinery

Our twine is made from 100% cotton, it's eco-friendly and made in the USA. Whether you're gift wrapping, crafting or tying up baked goods to give to a friend, our baker's twine adds a fresh, yet nostalgic look to any project at hand! Our baker's twine comes in 14 delicious colors and is uniquely twisted against a bright white hue, creating an eye-popping burst of color and a creative embellishment!
