….this is definitely one tune that a lot of kiddos can sing this Christmas 😉 Especially since Bird of Bird’s SVGs made a gorgeous Mistletoe in her newest collection Christmastime.
I made mine with nine layers to make it a bit more fluffy and full. I used AC Cardstock in Spinach and White and it’s hard to see but I did add some glitter to the berries as frost. Now I expect LOTS of kisses from Santa 😉
I tried sneaking a couple of kisses out of my eldest boy as I explained what the tradition with the Mistletoe is – but heck no!!!! When you’re 13 you just don’t kiss your Mommy anymore – only (if you’re ever so lucky) a peck on the cheek. *SIGH* Just have to rely on my youngest boy now and of course my “hubby”/Santa.
That’s all I wanted to show you today…..Happy Friyay, hoping you’ll have a great weekend ❤
Hello! 🙂 Just a small post to show you the two different trees I made out of Bird’s Snowflake Tree from her newest and absolutely gorgeous collection Christmastime.
First I made the tree the way Bird intended it to be:
I made it out of White AC Cardstock and the star is made from DCWV’s Mercury Glass Collection.
Here seen from above:
As you can see it’s very symmetrical ❤
Then I tried to mess things up and make a tree that is asymmetrical:
This tree is also made from White AC Cardstock but the star is made from Gold Pearl Paper. This tree is a bit fuller but still gorgeous. All I did was turn the center hole 45 degrees in every other snowflake.
Here’s a top view:
I can’t decided which I love the most and I really dig the idea of how you can play around with this tree any way you want. You can even make it rainbow colored ❤
Thanks for stopping by today – I hope you can use my little idea and please comment on it below ❤ Time for playing with the rest of the kit 😉
….or at least Dec. 1st. is coming up real fast! Therefore I decided to make the gorgeous Gingerbread House Advent Calendar from Bird’s cute Countdown to Christmas SVG Collection
As you properbly know, I love color and I just had to add some to the Gingerbread House. So I decided to use the “Milk & Cookies” Collection from Doodlebug Design and as I was having trouble deciding which of the papers to use, the solution fell literally in my lab – the collection has a paper with all the countdown numbers on it 😀 How lucky and easy is that????
The Gingerbread House itself is made from (hold on….) 25 pieces of brown AC Cardstock and 3 or 4 white pieces. I added some icy Stickles Glitter Glue to the roofs and the icicles. I used different colored glitter brads as handles and finally I inked all the drawers with a white ink pad to make the stand even more out.
I did also add a few Sugarplums Sprinkles also from Doodlebug on the front door of the House which happens to be the 24th – Christmas Night here in Denmark where we celebrate Christmas and not on the 25th 😉
The construction of this Countdown Gingerbread House is sheer genius and it’s very easy to put together even though it might take a night or two of you time as there are lots of pieces to assemble. Just remember to watch Bird’s tutorial video, which you find on the product page 🙂
Now this house could stand alone, but I still thought it needed a little extra something, so I made the Tree Luminaries from Bird’s Home for Christmas SVG Collection:
For these trees I also used the Milk & Cookies Collection from Doodlebug Design and added some Icy Stickles Glitter Glue dots in strategic places to give them more shine 😉 The trunks are made from AC Cardstock that I embossed with a basket patterned embossing folder and added some Bronze Age Metallique Wax from Prima to make the pattern stand out.
Here’s a picture of the House and trees together. I really hope you like this project – I am totally in love with it ❤
Thanks for stopping by and remember to leave me a little comment please 🙂
