Christmas Distress Tags

Hello everyone, hope you are all having a great weekend!

I uploaded a video onto youtube this morning showing all the scrummy goodness from my latest Design Team package from Wild orchid crafts… click here to watch.

Today’s project is made on behalf of the Wild Orchid Crafts Youtube Design Team is Christmas Distress Tags using the Tim Holtz Artful Dwellings Die.

Not only could these be used for attaching to christmas presents, but you could also use them as a tree decoration too!

Recycled Embellishment Jar..

Life at the moment can be summed up with one word…………………………Busy… with a capital “B”..

I’m so behind with projects, my poor wee craft shed is being neglected big time..

This evening I had some time to myself, the troops went to the movie’s to see the new James Bond 007 Skyfall so I had a couple of hours to play, which let me catch up with my Design Team commitments.

First on the agenda was a tutorial video for the poinsettia Christmas ornament I made a week and a half ago, this time I made a red one.. for the tutorial click here

 

Products used for this were :-

SP-00039 100 SELF ADHESIVE RHINESTONES – RED
BM-00078 50 LARGE RED POINSETTIA BLOOMS (60mm)
WT-00007 10 METRES RED DIVINE BAKERS TWINE (10.93 yards)

 

then I altered a small jar I had saved for recycling into something else…. in this case I cleaned it up and decorated and it now houses my cream pearl rose embelishments

 

 

products used for this were :-

SB-00008 VINTAGE SEAM BINDING RIBBON – OLOROSO
BM-00003 100 MIXED GREEN/WHITE TONE BLOOM SET
BM-00020 100 MIXED COLOUR SUMMER BLOOMS (20 colours – 3.8cm / 1.5″)
SP-00007 60 WHITE SELF ADHESIVE PEARLS – 5mm

 

Hopefully i’ll be able to get more crafting in next week 🙂 .. until the next time have a great weekend

Paper Baubles

Last night I dug the punches out, and had a go at making some paper christmas decorations…

First up was the Stampin Up 1 3/4″  Scallop Punch with some Cosmo Cricket Patterned paper with frayed burlap distress ink around the edges and some red/white bakers twine…

 

Then it was the 1 3/4″ stampin up circle punch with some CGD Studio christmas sheet music paper

 

Then I tried the label punch.. I love the effect of this one, it gives you a squat decoration, I used more of the CGD Studio Christmas patterned paper and again edged in frayed burlap..

 

These little christmas ornaments are a lot of fun to make, and i’m planning to make more, including a video tutorial which I;m aiming to have up on youtube this coming week.. I ran out of time this weekend!

 

then I got thinking further… what if I could use wild orchid craft flowers ….   some poinsettia’s perhaps?

love how this one turned out… I added some rhinestones for extra sparkle..

 

then I tried a smaller flower, a bit more fiddly to make but pretty in green 🙂

 

and the collection together
