Two Christmas Projects

My Christmas holiday has started and that gives me more time to create – Oooooh I love it ❤ So I made a couple of Christmas decor projects (not that I need anymore decor but hey!….who’s counting?)

First of I made the gorgeous Snowflake Sleigh from the Home for Christmas SVG Collection by Birds SVG’s

It’s very simple to put together and I used AC cardstock in white and white glitter paper also from AC. It won’t hold anything heavy but I did fill it with marshmallows and used it as a centerpiece on my dinner table for my Birthday

Gorgeous don’t you think?

Next I made the amazing Lamp Post from the Christmas Eve SVG Kit by SVGCuts.

I was rather timid by it but I had the day to myself and decided to give it a go. I used Black, Cream and Pine AC cardstock along with black POW glitter paper. I also added some gems and pearls to the poinsettias and the greenery 😉 I also used a couple of embossing folders from Sizzix and Cuttlebug but I never got to write names on them, so I forget what they are called…sorry.

Now I actually bought the right lamp to put inside the Lamp Post BUT…..Denmark and the US do not have the same  voltage so I can’t use it. Instead I put in a LED tea light and that works just fine 🙂

Now I only need to finish the decor for the Christmas dinner table….I’ll post a picture of it later 😉 I really hope it’s going to work – the idea that I have….but more about that later.

Thanks for stopping by and don’t forget to write me a small comment ❤

Merry Christmas ❤

Just got a crazy idea….

….and when that happens, I have to go with it! So last year I tried to make the Snowflake Tree Topper from Dreaming Tree’s O Christmas Tree SVG Bundle but my Cameo turned out to be broken (kept cutting crooked) so I when I finally had it replaced, Christmas was over. BUMMER!!! So tonight I thought to myself that now was the time to make it. But….I really do not need at Christmas Tree Topper. I have one that I’ve used for many years so I got to thinking what else I could use the topper for. Then it hit me! Why not punch some holes in it and use it as a fun lantern. I’m not a Cameo nor a mathematic genius so I didn’t know how to make the holes with the machine…..but luckily I have some hole punches from Fiskars in three different sizes and VOILA:

Worked like a charm. Ok it doesn’t light up  the whole room but flares out through the holes and makes a pretty pattern on the walls 🙂 And if I eventually want to switch out my old tree topper with the Snowflake Tree Topper, it still works despite of the holes.

The only materials I used for this project are White AC Cardstock, Gold AC Glitter paper and some gold embossed paper from my stash.

Now for cleaning up all the glitter :-/
