Merry Christmas!! Happy Holidays!!

I won't be doing much scrapping from now until the end of the year.. but hope to next week some! So let's see how things go! I have 3 more frames to make as gifts. My attempt to make home made gifts back fired since I don't have much time, and it ended up costing more probably I stopped keeping track.. lol..

Here is our Christmas Card I designed with Echo Park Digi Paper/Elements! This was my first ever attempt to design our Christmas Cards from scratch, of course I had about 3 versions at least but hubby liked this one the best, which was my first attempt. I printed them out at Costco and the print quality was amazing!

Happy Hanukkah! Merry Christmas!!

Tim Holtz- Tag 7

I enjoyed this tag! I used bo bunny paper, went over it with pearl dabber.. and then maya pearl mist.. I cut out the hollies with the Cricut and did several layers of paint and ink.. crumbled them up..used red bling spheres as my berries..and some misc ribbon and lace.. used a rub on that says Merry Christmas from Bo Bunny, on Kraft cut it out, and used ink around the edges and on top!

Tim Holtz- Tag 6

Here is my take on Tag 6.. I did not want to cover the foil as much and only did minimal coloring so the clear embossing powder did not work too well...I got the wreath picture ornament at big lots for $1 and bashed the backing out...

One more layout! Pumpkin Patch

I totally forgot to add this page for November! ;-)

Tim Holtz- Tag 5

Here is my 5th tag! I did not have any fancy stamps or embossing plates so I knew exactly what paper to used for this tag! I believe it was from the 12 days of Christmas line.
I used my Cricut to cut out the wreath with Joys of the Season. I did a few cuts on it, regular, blackout and layers, with two shades of green. I applied white dabber on the bottom piece, and added brown ink around the edges. I then added ink to the edges of the top piece, and then again added dabber on the layer pieces and bent my leaves to give it an effect. I then applied some more glimmer mist, and sprinkled some white glitter on it. Then used some red and white pearls, and added a bow I had in my stash. Used my white tulle and inked the tag itself some before applying the wreath! I cut out 3 more! SO I will have a total of 4 tags like this and will add some sentiment to it to give away.

Tim Holtz- Tag 4

This tag took me FOREVER!! WoW!! I couldn't find my spackled paint since my DD has been playing around with it.. so I used spackled accents instead didn't give me the same effect but will have to do. I used my cricut to cut out the snowman, and also the number 25. I embossed the blue paper, and painted the snowflakes so they can stand out. I later added glossy accents on my number 25, luckily had some tulle from my tutu making extravaganza.. and found some bling buttons in my stash... I embossed some clear plastic, cut it out, and used pearl white dabber... I found a snowflake chipboard to add on top and painted it blue ish before adding some spackled accents on it. I also took a stamp swirl and used peal dabber on it, it's on the top right corner!

Tim Holtz-Tag 3

Here is my 3rd tag! Wow.. I did not have ANY stamp, embossing folder to do this with, so I was lucky enough to find this paper! I cut out the goodies with the Cricut!

Tim Holtz- Tag 2

This tag was simpler than the first tag.. I used music paper, and cut out the reindeer with Winter Woodlands. I FLOCKED the reindeer and tied a bell around it's neck and added some gold stickles, used some burlap cut it up, and added it on to the top.. I used MS punch and Misc glitter ribbon for the bottom.. and used some distressed ink to go over the background. I added some pearl glimmer mist but very faint.

Tim Holtz- Tag 1

Here is my take on the first TH Tag! I could not find my cuttelebug snowflake embossing folder ANYWHERE so after an unsuccessful trip to Michaels I found the TH ones at Joann's.  I bought some jewerly bling that was on sale.. used my Cricut for the PEACE cutout and also the leaves.. I then glittered them with my Martha Stewart glitter, went over the blue embossed paper with some white pearl dabber, then sanded it some. I went with a paint brush over the sides with stained tea distressed ink...I made my "pine cones" out of brown tissue paper...I used some music paper and distressed it some...
