7.) ON THE SEVENTH DAY OF CHRISTMAS my true love gave to me... Seven packs of RedMan
Directive: Create a Project or Buy something in a Christmas theme, with the majority color being RED
*I altered a Tim Holtz Configuration Book by covering it with Tim Holtz's Merriment Paper, and Merriment Tissue Tape. I used some glittery paper to cut the die cut images from Tim Holtz. The frames in the cubbies were cut using Spellbinders dies. With the exception of the crystal swirl from Recollections, the rest of the embellishments are from Tim Holtz.

9.)ON THE NINTH DAY OF CHRISTMAS my true love gave to me... Nine years probation
Directive: Create a “DRESSED TO THE NINES” project (ie. holiday dress form tag, paperdoll diecuts for LOs, something with lots of glitter, any idea festively dressed!)
*I knew that when I made this Art Nouveau Triptych that I was going to give it to Terri, since they're in her favorite colors. I finally had the chance this Christmas.
Here's the original post when I made it: http://peachypapercrafts.blogspot.com/2014/03/art-nouveau-triptych.html
10.)ON THE TENTH DAY OF CHRISTMAS my true love gave to me...a Tin of Copenhagen
Directive: Fill an altered or embellished TIN (or other container) with your partner’s favorite treat
*I altered a tin from Joann's and filled it with Reese’s Peanut Butter Trees. I used paper and tissue tape from Tim Holtz's Merriment line(do you notice a pattern here? :-D), Some Gold Polka Dots Washi Tape from Close To My Heart, Gold Shimmer Trim, Sequins Gold Assortment, and on the lid, a Melissa Frances resin piece, a rosette that I made using a Tim Holtz Die, and ribbon from Tim Holtz.
11.) ON THE ELEVENTH DAY OF CHRISTMAS my true love gave to me... Eleven wrestlin' tickets
Directive: Alter 2 Tim Holtz TICKET STRIPS; OR Create 2 Tags or Christmas Cards; OR Create a project or Buy something that incorporates a “TICKET Design”. (there are stamps in shape of tickets with verses, ticket diecuts, etc.)
*I made four Tim Holtz ticket strips using his die (yes, four because I don't know how to count :-D). I sprayed the ticked with some Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays, let it dry, then I applied some Ranger Texture paste on some Tim Holtz stencils so I could have a raised design. I inked the pattern using the following Close To My Heart stamp pads: Ruby, New England Ivy, Topiary, Glacier, Outdoor Denim and Slate. I used the Christmas Post stamp set for the tickets. The poinsettias are from Prima flowers. I cut some snowflakes using Spellbinders dies and added some Sequins Silver Assortment for added sparkle.

*I found the perfect alterable for this directive... a 7 Gypsies Receipt Holder with twelve clips! I just added some ATC-size paper from Tim Holtz's Merriment paper to serve as photo backing, and covered the clips with tissue tape from the Merriment line. I added some Tim Holtz ribbon and danglers along the chain.
...and that concludes the 12 Days Of Christmas crafting, and here's wishing you all a Prosperous and Healthy New Year!
