The Pixie Cottage Christmas card

Hi everyone,

I’m so excited that today is my 1st post with The Pixie Cottage design team.

As always, we have 2 parts to the challenge and you can choose either or both to play along with. This week theme is to make a Christmas card and/or use the sketch below:

I decided to use the theme and made a Christmas card. Here is mine:

DP is from Authentique Paper, embossed frame around the cardinal is from Spellbinders. Both can be found at Michelle’s Scrapbooking & More.

Would you come and play with us today? The randomly picked winner will win two stamps of their choice from the Pixie Cottage Collection. The winner will be announced on the Friday after the challenge ends on The Pixie Cottage blog.

Have a great day!

Creative Vision Blog Hop #3

Hello everyone …

Welcome to another Creative Vision Team Themed Blog Hop. Today we are sharing a themed project, “Tags”. Tags are something I regularly make but don’t photograph it as much – just because a tag to me is like a test surface. To test out new techniques, new layouts, new materials, new style outside my comfort zone before it makes it into a larger surface like a card or a layout. But with Christmas right around the corner we hope our creations inspire you to create some tags of your own!

As you hop hop hop your way around, make sure to become a Creative Vision Blog follower if you are not already, (you have to be a follower in order to win) then leave me some love for a chance to WIN a $10.00 Shopping Spree to the Creative Clear Stamp Store! The winner will be announced on Thursday at the Creative Vision blog. You can also win a chance at being our Guest Designer!!

The tag I will share with you has a more vintagey feel to it – not a style I am supremely comfortable with. But I do like the look of it when someone else (like Tim Holtz) does it. So I like to dapple in vintage designs sometimes.

So here is my vintage tag:

Yup, I cannot get away from my pearls. Enjoy my vintage tag. Papers are from Websters Pages, Poinsetta is from Making Memories (discontinued) and the rest of the embellishments are from Tim Holtz. The sentiment I used is from Creative Vision Wishing You Set (CV0087).
