Christmas in 22 Days......

Seriously please....22 days?!

Are you sure...is the calendar right....because I need about 44 days!LOL

We have some fun posts coming up for you...creative ways to package items for the holidays, handmade gifts, cards and much more!

Today...how about a little of this and that to get you in the spirit of things!




Ribbon Spool Tree
Designer: Sherry Wright

Tis the Season papers (Tis the Season, Deck the Halls, Yuletide, Snowflakes), Buttons & Bling (Tis the Season), Double dot Wildberry & mint green ribbon.




Holly Ornament
Designer: Kristen Swain
All stuck up buttons-wild berry, Double dot ribbon- cranberry, Powder Blue Double Dot cardstock, Clover Dot Double Dot Cardstock, Holiday Cheer Plaid

Designer Tip: I stitched the hand cut holly leaves together, to give the ornament more stability. With three layers it is quite thick. Then I added glitter glue along the stitch lines for a touch of sparkle.







Jingle Bell Card
Designer: Kristen Swain

St. Nick Toyland, St. Nick Holly Berry, St. Nick Stocking, Time of Wonder Cardstock Sticker, St. Nick Buttons and Bling



Wooden Star Ornament

Designer: Julia Sandvoss
Believe Peace, Dreams Come True Cardstock Sticker, Pretty Flaky Rubons, Double Dot Ribbon

Designer Tip: I rescued this wood star ornament. The one side had a few knicks and paint chips so it was marked down. I love when I find these! Nice to repurpose one that might be overlooked!

Okay....22 days...time to start some serious list making!!!!!!!

Aw, I like the ribbon spool tree. :) I don't really do crafts or anything, but I love Christmastime, so anything related makes me smile.
