A Couple of RetroSketches Cards...

 
Had some time this week to participate in the
challenge over at the RetroSketches blog.

 
I made two cards with the same elements, and adjusted
my layout just a little on each.
 
The sentiments are from Paper Smooches and the paper is
Carta Bella - Traditions

More Simple Holiday projects...

 
Glittered up some Studio Calico wooden veneer snowflakes
and added them to some Kraft paper.
I love the Christmas thank you sentiment from PTI - Signature Greetings Set.

 
Below is a CAS holiday card using Unity, die cut snowflakes,
button, twine, and more PTI sentiments...

Holiday Cards...

 
Just got my hands on some new Kaisercraft papers....
These cards were made using the Just Believe line
(I also have the Turtle Dove and Twig & Berry)
Lots of gorgeous papers in each package.
It's hard to tell from the photographs - but some of them have a silver foil
embossed into them.
 
On the top card I used a cream library card and spritzed it with
some Glimmer Mist.
The bottom card uses the metallic string I have available in
my Etsy Shop.
(Where you can also find the twine and library cards)

Gift Card Bags/Ornaments


 
I took a bunch of the tiny Kraft treat bags that I have
and decorated them so they may be used
as gift card holders for the holidays.
Gift cards fit perfectly inside these!

 
These have a die cut tag, a die cut stocking, ribbon,
twine, and a button.
The stamped sentiment is from PTI.
The paper is KaiserCraft and is one of the foil papers from the pack.
So much prettier in person!
 
You can even punch a hole in the corner and hang them from the
Christmas tree or a bottle of wine!

 
These sold from my handmade shop rather quickly, so I am
putting together another bunch to list.

Christmas tags...

I've been working on holiday tags lately...
 
 

 
Some with lace and snowflakes....

 
Some with trees....

 
 
Some with bells.....

 
Square tags with ribbon and twine!

 
They have all been uploaded to my other Etsy Shop
 
 
I have decided to separate my handmade items and put them into their own shop. 
My other shop will carry the supplies end of the business.

Christmas Tags...

I finally got a chance to photograph some of the projects I have completed...
This time of year I struggle with getting daylight/sunshine
to get my creations photographed.
Shorter days and early sunsets just don't work for me.
I finally set myself up with some "artificial daylight"
and got lots of pictures taken!
 
Here are some CAS tags I made using some die cut numbers, plain white
die cut tags, and that new curly metallic ribbon I just added
to my Etsy Shop.
I used my watermark ink to add some snowflakes to a couple of
the number sets.
The tags come all strung up with white twine for tying to
that perfect gift.

 
The ribbon is super curly and fun. 
I see me using it on lots more tags and holiday projects!

Holiday Ribbon Collections...

 
I have just recently added several new ribbons to
my Etsy Shop...

 
This first group is available in four colors.
It is a soft string type ribbon and is slightly bigger than 1/16" in width.
 

 
The next ribbon is a wired eyelash metallic ribbon....
available in 5 colors!
 

 
It is great for adding that "garland" look to your
cards, albums, or scrapbook pages.




 
Lastly, I have this super fun metallic ribbon
in 4 colors...

 
It is about 1/8" in width and also makes a great addition
to your holiday cards, gift wrapping, and December Daily albums.


 
All of these ribbons are so much prettier in person!!
I will be posting creations made using these over the next several weeks, so
check back often......
or
Shop HERE to get some of your own!
 
Sorry for the long post, but I had to share photos of these in
all the colors available.
