SIMON MONDAY CHALLENGE: PARTY TIME!


Ciao a tutti e benvenuti a un'altra settimana su SIMON SAYS STAMP MONDAY CHALLENGE BLOG! Le festività sono vicinissime e il nostro tema non poteva essere che questo: PARTY TIME! La sfida avrà una durata di due settimane per permettere a tutti quelli che vorranno partecipare di farlo nonostante gli impegni "festivi"! Oggi salutiamo CATE DIXSON la talentuosissima quindicenne che è stata con noi per questo mese, potete vedere i suoi lavori sul blog di JennShurkus! Grazie CATE , è stato molto piacevole averti con noi!

Hi all and welcome to another week on the SIMON SAYS STAMP MONDAY CHALLENGE.
This challenge will run for 2 weeks so you have plenty of time to join in the party!
We would like to wish you all a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
This is Cate’s last challenge with us and we would like to say a huge thank you for your fabulous creations over the past few weeks! You have been a brilliant guest!



Questa settimana il tema era troppo ghiotto! Non potevo lasciarmi sfuggire l'occasione di preparare il centrotavola per il giorno di Natale. La fustella Gingerbread Village è veramente favolosa. Io adoro tutto, i biscottini , i candy canes, le caramelle...

This week the theme was too delicious! I have not missed the opportunity to prepare the centerpiece for Christmas Day. Gingerbread Village die  is truly fabulous. I love everything, the cookies, the candy canes, peppermint candies...






La base è un vecchissimo porta CD vuoto e in disuso! L'ho coperto prima di gesso e poi di Snowflake paste.

The base is a very old container for compact discs, empty and disused! I covered it with gesso and Snowflake paste.




Come vedete quasi tutti i pezzi sono ricoperti da un velo di zucchero, in realtà è Distress Dry Glitter Clear Rock Candy, uno dei miei prodotti preferiti di sempre!

As you can see almost all pieces are covered with a layer of sugar, Distress Dry Glitter Clear Rock Candy, one of my favorite products ever!




Per costruire queste splendide casette in modo perfetto, vi segnalo tre link utilissimi da cui io ho preso spunto!
I tre autori sono davvero tre top nel mondo dello scrapbooking: Tim Holtz , Shari Carroll per Simon Says Stamp, Anna-Karin Evaldsson, mia collega di team! Guardateli tutti perchè da ciascuno di loro troverete consigli utilissimi per costruire queste meraviglie! Le loro sono spettacolari!

To build these beautiful houses in a perfect way, I suggest three useful link from which I was inspired!
The three authors are really stars in the scrapbooking world: Tim Holtz, Shari Carroll for Simon Says Stamp, Anna-Karin Evaldsson! Watch them all because  in each one  you will find useful tips to build these wonders! Their are spectacular!




Per completare la tavola ho fatto un piccolo segnaposto in tema. Il problema che avevo era trovare dei barattolini di piccola dimensione, ancora più piccoli di quelli degli omogeneizzati! Ho trovato questi barattolini vuoti che servono per organizzare piccoli abbellimenti prodotti da Ranger. Potevo mai lasciarmeli sfuggire??? Riempiti con caramelline e Distress Glitter rifiniti con mini albero glitterato e cordino Candy Cane Idea-Ology!

To complete the table I made a small placeholder. The problem I had was finding jars of small size, even smaller than those of baby food! I found these empty jars that are used to organize small embellishments, produced by Ranger.  Filled with candies and Distress Glitter finished with glittery mini tree and  Idea-Ology string!



Per ottenere l'effetto lucido ma zuccheroso sugli abbellimenti, li ho cosparsi con Glossy accents e subito dopo con Distress Dry Glitter! 
Spero vi piaccia la mia Gingerbread house, confesso che sono stranamente soddisfatta! Il piccolo Gingerbread che vedete proviene dalle mie "provviste" Scrap, lo possiedo da tempo immemorabile e l'adoro ancora!

To get the shiny and sugary effect on my embellishments, I sprinkled them with Glossy Accents and immediately with Distress Dry Glitter!
I hope you like my Gingerbread house, I confess that I am curiously satisfied! The little Gingerbread man you see comes from my own stash, it's with me  from time immemorial and  I still love it!
