Christmas Blog Hop

The following 3 projects are for the Creative Scrapbook Diva Christmas Bloghop. 12 days filled with projects to help gift giving, cards and decor.

My pillowboxes inspiration came from Michelle's day 6 challenge. She has certainly made for than I have but I am going a bit crazy with all the combinations of paper and embellishments for these little cuties.

I run the box through my bigkick while still flat for the embossing.

Luisa's day 4 challenge is a banner using her cricut her snowflakes and letters.

I used chipboard letters over sheet music flowers I made from my dad's collection.

My last post has a more detailed banner I made last week with an extra layer of lace flowers and each letter has a beaded ribbon. This one is more simple but I think I may tie some small bells or wreaths in between each letter. These banners would be great for spring/Easter as well as Christmas!

The glass glitter edges the ovals and covers the letters and center star.

For Sandy's day 3 of the bloghop, I helped my 4th grader finish the little book. This will be for her classmates to sign for the teacher. We included a very nice Christmas quote inside the front cover.
This will make a great keepsake ornament. Thanks for the idea Sandy!

I have been having fun with my "sparkles" snowflakes (same star and snowflake as the pillowboxes) from Quickutz (used with the bigkick).

This mini book I made quite a long time ago but I planned the ribbon a bit better. If the ribbon is glued between the cover and the inside paper, it can be placed anywhere for tying or hanging. The pearls were added last on this book for hanging in a craft room.
