Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas to all my crafty friends!
I have not been crafting this month - my husband has been in the hospital since 12/9. :(
He is making some progress and hoping he comes home soon.

Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas
a Happy New Year!

Catch you in 2012!

Christmas Tags

I made a Matchbox with Tags as a gift for a crafty friend. The Creative Charms embellishments were the perfect touch and I used quite a few different ones on my tags.

Here is my box - it is a matchbox style. The poinsettia is embellished with Gradient Pearls. The box is from SVG Cuts Crisp Days of Fall Kit.

The box slides open and inside I have three tags perfect for Christmas gifts.

The first tag is my Santa Tag. I used Gradient Gems to accent the Santa image. Santa paper and background paper is from BoBunny.

The second tag is my Red & Green Tag. The Vintage Jewel Brads were a perfect fit for this tag. I did some embossing of the AC Cardstock.

Last but not least is my Snowman Tag. I used the Vintage Christmas Self-Adhesive Metal Frames for this one.
I cut the snowman along with all the other images on my Cricut using SCAL.
The snowman is actually a freebie from SVG Cuts.

These were so fun to put together - I think I may put together a bunch more as little gifts for crafty friends!

Dont' forget to check out the Creative Charms Blog for lots on holiday inspiration!

More Treats for School

My son, Will, picked out mini candies for his classmates. I placed them in a bag and added a quick and easy tag. Made 22 of these in no time at all and we're all ready for the Christmas Party!

Here is a look:

I used Stamps from Punkin’ Patch Stamps ~ Holiday Traditions ~ for these along with their free Stampables. I imported the SVG for the Stampable into SCAL and cut a bunch of them:

I wanted to attach the stamped scallop shape to the bag and decided to do some work in SCAL.
I took the SVG from the Stampable and added a Shadow effect to it. (rounded 1.25) I then made a large circle using basic shapes and welded that to the scallop shape. I added a smaller circle inside the larger circle (do not weld this).

Here is what it looks like in SCAL:

Check to make sure it will cut okay by clicking Preview.

I cut these using AC Cardstock and adhered the stamped scallop on top and attached to the treat bag. Simple & Easy!
