Stamp Simply Celebrates! Day Eight

Welcome to day eight of Stamp Simply Celebrates! So many great ideas for the Christmas Season!

Julie Koeber's featured project is a challenge to create a small gift or token of thanks for those people that help us out everyday--our paper delivery person, hair stylist, or child's teacher--you get the idea...she is also tying in blog candy to participants...
My samples are both inexpensive stamped jewelry created from kits:


The strawberry bracelet is a kit by 7gypsies--Naked Bracelette in Antique Brass. It can be found here: Scrapbook Express for around $6.00. I stamped my strawberry image (Lockhart Stamp Co.) with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored it with my Copic Markers. It was quite quick and easy to assemble.

The pendant is a Martha Stewart Pendant kit from Michael's--costing between $5.00-$7.00 (I bought it last summer). Both strawberry and zinnia images are Lockhart Co. stamps, purchased from Ellen Hutson. I once again colored it with my Copic markers before assembling it.

You can see more great small gift ideas at these links:
