Christmas Lay-outs

Scrap pages I just finished for Christmas 2yrs ago. I found some great velvet and cloth frames.
The words Miracle and Beauty are on the pewter velvet ribbons. I cut out lots of swirls and used utee on the corners and for the santa seal stamp in the top right corner.

More swirls with pearls inside some of them. Some spreadable snow on the corner of the candle picture and green mulberry paper.

These were so fun so I wanted to share them. I had the opportunity to use a cricut machine so I made the sleigh and 8 tiny reindeer. I added some "spreadable" Aleene's Glitter Snow and a bead to each reindeer. Oh, so fun!

Tag You're It!

Here is my oversized tag for the Challenge. I actually made this last Christmas for my mother. This is her as a little girl. The brown and aqua combo is absolutely one of my favorites.

This technique is one from 2006 Somerset Studio magazine. It is a great article on "milk-resist" stamping. It came out great. The concoction of milks is very sticky to work with but comes out very nice on cardstock. I attempted to use it on acrylic painted papers and chipboard but it didn't work at all. Basically, you stamp images on paper using 50% skim milk and 50% sweetened condensed milk. Then after heat drying, I sprayed it with a walnut ink spray and wiped immediately.

Whimsical Winter Jars

This is a peanut butter glass jar decorated with Aleene's glitter snow and Twinklets, ribbons and findings.
I sold this and my clay minibook for the MOPS in my community.

This little bitty one is made with a baby food jar. A little blurry!

Christmas Tags

Here are a couple of my winter tags I really had fun making. I'm posting them to be a part of this week's Tag Your It. They have some beautiful tags to inspire us all.
I used alcohol ink for the background of the bird tag.
The snowman tag is my version of a Tim Holtz tag from last years 12 days of Christmas.
