Christmas Tags

I have a confession.  I am gift wrapping challenged.  You would think a paper crafter would be better at wrapping gifts but it's just not my thing.  
All these gifts are for my son's girlfriend.  No I didn't go overboard...hmmm well maybe a little.  It's so much fun for a mom of two boys to shop for a GIRL!
To try to make up for my lack of wrapping skills, I made this set of gift tags for her gifts. 

Project Details:
Magnolia Stamps: Tilda with little snowy, Lingonberry Tilda, Edwin the day before Christmas
Spellbinders dies
La La Land stitched circle die

Christmas Card

This is the card I made for the dog groomer.  Izzy goes to the groomer more frequently than I go to the hair!
I decided to go with non Christmas paper and I think it turned out cute.

Elf Wall Art

I found this collage picture frame at Michael's and decided to use it would be perfect for Christmas decorating.  I am sure most people use them for actual pictures of friends and families but I am sure all my paper crafting friends will! The frame holds 8 4x6 pictures so each area is perfect size to show off these odorable elves from Mo's Digital Pencil.

Fairy Christmas

Oh my the count down has begun.  There are only 19 days until Christmas.  Are you done with your Christmas cards?  Mine are going in the mail today.  Whew!  It did help to make a card a week with the 52 CCT.  Of course there were several weeks that I made 2 or 3 cards.  I like making and sending Christmas card.  I think the post office likes me too...I keep them in business.
The final challenge for 2015 is to create a card using any of our previous themes from 2015.  I chose to use the August sketch.
This card is for my son's girlfriend.

Yesterday was my sister's 50th birthday.  I decided to make her a card that was a little bit feminine, cute and had an element of fun.  I liked the 50 Rocks sentiment but didn't want to send her 50 actual rocks in the mail so I found this package of pop rocks to use instead.

Card Details:
Magnolia Tilda Stamp
Sentiment on front: Stampin Up
50 Rocks sentiment: Computer generated by me
Sentiment on inside: clear sentiment stamp
Martha Stewart butterfly punches
Cottage cutz candly dies
