Flaky Gifts

 

Hello – so nice of you to drop in πŸ™‚

Today I want to show you some giftbags I made for my girlfriends. We usually give each other Christmas presents, but this year is different due to different circumstances, so most of them are skipping it this year. Well that doesn’t stop me from giving something to them! So I made the following giftbags:

This giftbag is the one from Bird’s SVGs Home for Christmas SVG Collection. I used Maja patterned paper “I wish”, “Joyous Winterdays” and “Vintage Frost Basics” and Best Creation Glitter cardstock in white. For the handle I used a thick hemp cord.

The following bags are the same giftbag but I changed the snowflake in the middle. I used the freebie snowflakes and simply made an offset of the flake and welded it to a circle. Might take a bit of trying but you’ll get the hang of it in no time. I use Silhouette Cameo for cutting.

This bag is made from Danish Riddersholm patterned paper “The Day Before” and some shimmery paper from my stash.

This bag is also made from Riddersholm paper and shimmery paper πŸ™‚ I also want to mention that I altered the snowflake a tiny bit by adding some circles.

This bag is made from Maja “Vintage Frost Basic” paper and glitter POW paper from AC.

The same goes for this beautiful bag πŸ™‚

Finally for this bag I used “Joyous Winterdays” from Maja Design and the snowflake is made from self-adhesive glitter paper from Artemio.

These bags are so awesome for gift giving but can also be used as luminaries πŸ™‚

That’s it for today πŸ™‚ Stay tuned for the gift inside the bags coming up early next week πŸ™‚

Thanks for stopping by and please let me know what you think of the bags ❀

 

 

 

Hanging Poinsettia

Hello and thanks for stopping by πŸ™‚

Today I want to show you a hanging decoration I made using the beautiful poinsettia from Bird’s SVGs White Christmas Collection:

I made the same Poinsettia with holly and pine as the 5″ by 7″ card but enlarged it to fit the 12″x12″ cutting mat. So it’s pretty big πŸ™‚

I also made it double sided so it can hang in a window and be seen from both sides. This makes it pretty thick and sturdy as well.

I used AC Cardstock in Pine, Crimson, Forrest and Rouge along with some patterned cardstock in a lighter green. I also used White Best Creation Glitter Cardstock and some self-adhesive glitter cardstock from Artemio in green.

Finally I simply punched a hole in a top berry to thread my string and voila! It’s ready to hang.

Thanks for stopping by today – be sure to visit soon as I’m showing more Christmas projects in the following days πŸ™‚ Oh and please leave a small comment for me πŸ˜‰

The Joy of Giving

Hello and happy 2nd Sunday of Advent

Today I want to show you a beautiful gift box I made from the new kit by SVG Attic called JGW Christmas Botanica

DSC_0023

The Poinsettia 3D Flower Topped Box is perfect for a small hostess gift or even a Christmas gift.

I made the box in AC Cardstock in Rouge, Crimson, Olive and White and decorated it with patterned paper from Swedish Maja Design Paper “I Wish” and Best Creation White Glitter Paper.

I inked all the edges with chalk ink from Prima and sprinkled some Glass Glitter Gold Rush from Finnabair onto the flower center. Finally I added some gold glitter dots to the snowflake.

I can’t wait to be giving this one away…..

Thanks for joining me today – I still have lots of projects to show you so don’t stray too far πŸ˜‰

Snowy Swirls

Sometimes I just can’t believe how alike some of us think. Like this project I’m about to show you.

I made mine a while back and really thought “Hey! This is an awesome idea nobody before me has thought of”……until Lee Cox released her blog post with the gorgeous Gingerbread House Clock she made in red, white and brown (check it out here)

Yup great minds think alike (ha ha ha or just crazy minds) and she had made one just like it too. I’m talking about the 3D Swirly Christmas Tree (a freebie found here)

DSC_0012

She too had made it into a 3D creation by gluing six trees together. I just added a second layer of Best Creation White Glitter paper. This was made by making an internal offset of the tree – mine is 1 cm (0.039″)

Such an easy project that looks beautiful during the day and at night…….

…it’s gorgeous!!!

Thanks for stopping by today and please remember to leave me a small greeting πŸ™‚

Time for Christmas

It’s getting closer and closer πŸ™‚ And I for one am like a child – I can’t wait.

Talking about Christmas in all it’s glory, glitter and coziness ❀

One of my new Christmas decorations is the Gingerbread House Clock from Bird’s Christmastime SVG Collection:

The house itself is made from AC Cardstock in Caramel and decorated with White Glitter Paper from Best Creation and pink/rose colored POW Glitter paper from AC. The base is made from White AC Cardstock and the panels are patterned paper from My Minds Eye “Colorful Christmas”. The vellum is from a local craft store and is patterned with white swirls.

I embellished with different sizes of white glitter domes and painted the second hand with a white sharpie and rose colored Stickles glue.

As I was thinking it would be awesome to tell time at night also, I cut out the numbers on the watch through all the layers and added some vellum behind – works like a charm πŸ˜‰

Love this Gingerbread House Clock. It’s tick tock’ing away in my living room and is a gorgeous addition to all my other luminary Christmas Decorations.

Thanks for stopping by today – I’ll be back soon with another Christmas project πŸ˜‰

White Gold

You’ve seen me mention this before: I LOVE snow – the white gold from above. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that this will be the year for some serious snow cover for several month so I can get my need covered πŸ˜‰

This love of snow and a lady on Facebook (Cindy Jones) are what made my otherwise crazy brain, come up with an idea for my Christmas Dinner Table.

Every year I make place cards – just because I can πŸ˜‰ If I didn’t, my kids would throw a fit. I make them every time for Birthdays, Christmas and New Years.

As I mentioned my idea sprung partly due to Cindy Jones from one of the craft group I’m in on Facebook. She made a beautiful version of Bird’s Snowflake Easel Card (found as a freebie here) and I instantly knew how to make my place cards:

DSC_0007

It is downscaled 50% from the original and I used Vanilla AC Cardstock along with Best Creation White Glitter Paper and some gold glitter paper from my stash. I popped the name tag on with pop dots and added a small diamond gem to the middle of the snowflake. As easy as that.

So what do you think?
