have yourself a merry *LITTLE* christmas!

it seems like people either love inchies, or hate them. what do you think? i love them. stephanie loves them. so for the last couple of years we've had an inchies/twinchies fortnight at ♥JINGLE BELLES and we're doing it again this year! this was one of those times when i almost had "too many" ideas. i know, i know, there's no such thing, really, but sometimes when my brain feels bombarded with lots of inspiration, it can be hard to focus. eventually i decided on twinchies... round ones... and after i'd made those decisions, everything came together:

(vintage: sheet music + seam binding; patterned paper: studio calico, mambi + the backing from some k and co rub-ons as the base of my twinchie circles; flowers: prima; jingle bell brads: oriental trading; evergreen clear stickers: bo bunny; music tape: freckled fawn; red berry rub-ons: kaiser craft; labels: dymo; ink: colorbox; 2" circle punch: marvy; corner rounder: we r memory keepers; adhesives: staples brand gluetape runner, 3m foam tape, scotch gluestick) 

for some reason i'm really LOVING neutrals right now, especially white and off-white. not sure why, exactly, but whenever possible i like to follow these little tangents, it's always interesting to see where they're going to lead!  i'm not sure you can really see where all of the ingredients i've used have wound up... they're mostly at the center of the three circles, but layered up. so i decided to take a pic in hopes of clarifying. yeah, it would've been great to snap photos as i went along, but at the time i was too immersed to even think of it; my process is not very "documentation friendly", actually, lol! :)

miss stephanie has made a remarkably cool card that i'm positive you'll enjoy seeing, so why not head over to ♥JINGLE BELLES and start planning your own bid for world inchie domination, too! ♥
