Getting into the Christmas spirit with some homemade gifts. Next week we're having our Office Party and will be playing the white elephant game. I made a gift card holder using the Vintage Santa from Miss Kate's Cuttables. I used the Cricut cartridge Pretty Packages to make the blue bow on the gift. I love how well Santa turned out that I decided to make some more gift card holders and put him on the closure band. I completed several vinyl cutting boards for gifts and made little gift bags to go along with them. I put specialty oils and vinegars in small bottles to place in the gift bags. I completed my Sister in laws journal. That present is killing two birds with one stone, so to speak. I always make her a journal for our trips together and since we already booked our trip to Greece in September, I finished her journal. Hope you like my projects and feel inspired. Thanks for looking.

I was perusing FB when I came across the Christmas svg from Treasure Box Designs. I purchased it and decided I wanted to make some Christmas cards using it. Well, my plan went awry when I didn't size it correctly. I made it way too big and decided to make a little Christmas scene. That didn't work either because he was just too big. So I came up with the shadowbox idea. I like how it turned out and will be taking it to work to display there for the Christmas season. I used Treasure Box Designs, Scrap Factory, Cricut, and a purchased cutout (wreath) that was garland and I changed. I did some fussy cutting out of Graphic 45 paper for the toys. I used stickles on the glass to emulate frost and snow tex on the edges to emulate snow. I hope you like it.
