Graphic 45 Christmas Past Shadow Box

I cut some images from last year's Graphic 45 Christmas paper pad for this shadow box. The designer paper on the background is from My Mind's Eye. I placed some berry sprays along the sides and added some roses and skeleton leaves for contrast. I highlighted the images by outlining them with Stickles. I added some crystals and Flower Soft to trim the tree. :-)

Vintage Christmas ATCs

I also made these Artist Trading Cards with the themes of the Spirits of Christmas Past, Christmas Present and Christmas Future in mind. I used paper from Melissa Frances for all three ATCs. The images are from ATC Collection and Graphic 45. The ribbons used are from Hobby Lobby.
I added some Flower Soft around Santa's wreath and some Enamel Accents and Liquid Pearls for added embellishment. The sticker for "Christmas Present" is from Jolee's.
For Christmas Future, I had a scene of a family during Christmas time. The heart border punch is from Martha Stewart.

Angel-Themed Recipe Cards

I got both these recipes from . The cards measure 6"x6" and I used paper from DCWV for these. The ribbons are from Hobby Lobby. I used my Spellbinders dies for the labels and photo mats. The recipe cards are embellished using bling from Prima, Liquid Pearls and some stars from my stash. The corners were punched using a Martha Stewart corner punch.

A Christmas Chunky Charm and Shopping Bag

Candy also received a chunky charm and a shopping bag that I filled with brads, ribbon and Prima flowers.

I used a Tim Holtz swivel clasp to make the chunky charm and added some beads from Michael's, enamel charms and a darling teeny jingle bell.

I made this bag using paper from My Mind's Eye. The ribbon handle is from Hobby Lobby. I embellished it with a stickpin and a flower from Recollections.

Crafty Secrets Santa-Themed Tags

These Santa-themed tags went to Candy. :-) I used images from Crafty Secrets, FLAT stickers (gasp! Yes, flat stickers he-he-he) from The Paper Studio and dimensional stickers from Jolee's. The tag was cut using a Tim Holtz die and the designer papers were from My Mind's Eye. I embellished the tags using Liquid Pearls, a flower and skeleton leaf from Recollection, paper lace from K&Co and lace and beaded trim and a metal embellishment from my stash.

I added Stickles along the edges of the stamped image and colored the background with Pebbles chalk. A piece of tulle completed the look of my tag.
