Christmas is...

...officially on at my house! The Christmas tree is up, we decided to go with the classic look this year. It's not a huge tree, but it's our tree & you should feel the atmosphere it gives when the lights are on! Sigh..i love christmas :)
Anyways, here are photos of some projects that are simultaneously going for this Merry season. First up The Cards, going with the Snowman theme this year, so easy to make & economical too :)
These are missing their carrot-ee noses, by the way. You can still learn how to make these from this video.
Had some time to make a couple of Christmas tree ornaments, this is one of them. I used a MM's sheer frame for this, cut out mitten stickers from Cosmo Cricket's 'Oh Joy' CS stickers and stuck it to the side of the frame together with a punched out snowflake using mini pop dots. Then I added glitter on the edges with Glossy accents & stuck the whole thing on a red CS. Voila!
Oh, please don't try to use the Crop a Dile with the sheer frames (mine broke but i managed to piece it together with Glossy accents). Add ribbon & done :)

Next up are tags i got from PaperTreyInk. They're free templates & they're absolutely gorgeous! They also have great ideas for economical homemade gifts, do check them out. I'm going with the Snowman Soup idea, really think it's jolly :) Adding them to the Xmas goody bags.
I stamped a MM snowflake image in the middle & added Adhesive-backed Pearls in the middle. (found this earlier at a neighbourhood shop for $1.50! A whole bunch of them at that). So cute to go with the hot choc mix & mini marshmallows, don't you think?

I'm thinking of adding gift cards in the Christmas goody bag this year, here's a gift card holder i made. Really quick & easy, got the measurements + idea from Gina K's blog. Check it out here.

Will do up a list tomorrow as to what's going into the Christmas goody bags that i'm sort of standardising for everyone this year :)
Hmmm..that sounds really cheap. Ok let's call it personalised standardising lol*
Have a great weekend everyone :)
