I used Dec. 25th, Speaking of Winter, Very Merry Tags, and Mini-Books as well as Camp Out to complete my projects! As you look at each one, I'll tell you all about it.
I used the Dec. 25th Cartrdige to cut this Santa and his sleigh out of vinyl, put in on a glass block, and then put ornaments (20 for 3.50 at Wal-Mart) added string of battery operated lights, and a pretty bow. You can't tell in the photo, but when the lights are on, it's really cute!! I may take it to work for decor there.. This would be a great gift for someone in a small apartment/limited space..
I used Mini-Books to make this gift card holder. It's a page from one of the books (makes a pocket) and it has holes at the bottom, you could probably remove those in CCR or with the Gypsy, but I left them to add trim such as ribbon or twine. I decided I didn't like that so I just put my ribbon at the bottom which covered them up.. I cut an extra glove out so it looks like it's holding the envelope shut, but actually there's a notch there for the flap to fit into. Since we give ur grown kids gift cards these days.. these wil be great!!
I used Very Merry Tags to make these. They are perfect for packages, but I made them larger to use as ornaments on my tree. I also think they'd be great to put the children's or grandchildren's photos on the back with the year. Easy to send to far away relatives, or to just see how they grow over the years. If you start a tradition like that now, by the time they leave home, they'd have a great collection or how cute to scapbook the ornaments for a life long of celebrations! I added some bling ot the letters for sparkle. I used double sided paper, so not only does that show through the letters, but on the back they're different. pretty from both sides. Again, this is a project the kids could do! What a nice tradition that could become setting aside some time to make decor as a family!
I hope you enjoyed your visit here, and Have a wonderful holiday season!.
