Third day of Christmas - Diecut Flower Christmas Tree

Written by Stef on . Posted in Christmas/Seasonal

die cut flower christmas tree

Hi Everyone

Today we would love to share a Christmas Tree we have created  from a foam cones and many Die cut flowers.

To start with I painted a foam cone with Bundled sage distress paint. Using Graphic 45 Days of Christmas and Teresa Collins Tinsel & Co I diecut many flowers using a variety of punches and Dies including Tim Holtz Tattered Flowers, Tattered Pointsettia and Tattered Floral Garland. Create Flowers by scrunching, layering and moulding and then attaching to the cone with pearl headed pins. The Kaisercraft Star has been embossed with Enchanted Embossing powder and attached to the top of the cone. 

This pretty Christmas Tree would make a lovely table centre or decoration for your home.

Thanks for Stopping by

First Day of Christmas - Tealights

Hi everybody,

Don't you just love Christmas? With only 24 sleeps to go it is time to share some projects to make your Christmas special. These tealights are battery operated so safe for children to decorate and enjoy for your christmas table, decorations around your home or hanging from your tree.

They are easily created by wrapping washi tape or ribbon around the base of the tea light and then decorating with strips of bling and individual pearls and rhinestones.

More christmas ideas tomorrow and on the face book page.

Thanks for stopping by

Graphic 45 produce the most beautiful paper and the 12 Days of Christmas range was no exception. We all know how much Nancie loves their paper and many of you will have seen the stunning books she has created with some of the ranges. Today we would like to share a Christmas card she has made just recently with the 12 Days of Christmas range, some pretty lace and decorated with delicate glitter on the Dancing Ladies dress.

Bottle Gift Wrapping

Last christmas a very special friend gave me a lovely bottle of wine but it was so beautifully decorated that it took a long time to take the bottle out of the wrap and enjoy it.

Today I have decorated a couple of bottles of wine to show you. The original idea came from Graphic 45s blog but I have used some of the Christmas paper I already had.

This is a great way of using up any left over paper you may have but the graphic 45 christmas ranges are stunning.

Day 3 of 5 Days in December

Written by Kristy on . Posted in Christmas/Seasonal

Hi everyone,

Today's idea is a different kind of 'pocket page' to keep the Christmas cards you receive.  To make the page I have used some 12x12 cardstock and trimmed down one of the patterned papers in the Simple Stories Christmas line "December Documented".  This line has a mix of a little bit of vintage, a little bit of fun/cute, some chalkboard elements and a mix of traditional and slightly non-traditional Christmas colours.
