Hi everyone! I am here to share a very quick project for Crafty Card Gallery blog and this month's theme is Christmas. I know this is not a card but since I was needing a tag for my journal I thought I would share anyways. :-) For more info and photos please check out my blog post HERE.
Thanks for stopping by, hope your Saturday is awesome and enjoy creating!
I cut the bottom from mat board and covered it with Graphic 45's cardstock from the Gilded Lily collection. I know it isn't really Christmasy but I wanted more of a wintery/snowman feel for my project since my house is decorated more in those colors. Plus I thought the little girl with the tree was prefect because I can keep this out and enjoy it in the winter months ahead.
The snowman I made from a 1" and 1 1/2" SmoothFoam balls. I gessoed and painted with an off white paint and once dry I put together and applied Antique Mod Podge and covered with glitter. I had baked "carrot noses" from Sculpey clay according to directions on the package. I adhered the nose and two dew drops to the snowman and added more glitter to the face. The "arms" are cut from wire which I rolled to make hands and then inserted on either side of the body and then added a little glue to secure.
I filled the inside of the case with tissue paper, adhered the bottle brush trees to that and the snow girl image I printed from the internet. I fussy cut out and adhered to one of the trees and added the snowman.
The silver snowflake is an ornament that I had bought in a package of snowflakes and this one was deformed so instead of tossing it I decided to use as a back ground of sorts.
I worked tulle in and around the decorations and edges the ends with the gesso and glitter.
I finished off with snowflake sequins, paper flowers and thread. Be sure to hop over to Eileen Hull's blog and link up your Favorite Things creation and see what the rest of the inspiration team has created!

Hi everyone! I wanted to share a gift bag I decorated using a Lime Green Saggy Baggy and a Petaloo DIY Burlap Wild Sunflower paintable flower. This was a super quick and easy project to put together and was less than an hour to complete.
I cut from the Green Burlap Sheet a Holly leaf used the Holly Branch Diecut, applied Mod Podge to the front of the leaf and once dry I spritzed with Kiwi Glimmer Mist. I cut two inches of lace from the Lace Trimmings Assorted Pack and gathered in the center and tied off with Jute Cord. I tied off two more bows with the Jute Cord and then adhered all the pieces to the bag with Beacon Adhesives Fabri-Tac.
Hi everyone! I have one more project for the year to share for the Robin's Nest as a guest designer. For more photos and info on how I altered this maglite box into the gift box you see below you can find my post HERE.
