Christmas Eve

Well, here we are on the eve of Christmas! What a glorious month it's been full of holiday activities! The last couple of days have been spent enjoying the fruits of this month's preparations and decorating. The kitchen is full of home baked breads, cookies and a roast in the fridge for Christmas day. There's a puzzle in the works on the kitchen table that the family has been working on. I hope you and your family have a very Merry Christmas and enjoy every fleeting moment!


Our 2010 Christmas tree.


I spent a little time yesterday doing some design team work for Two Peas in a Bucket. Each week they release some of the cutest digital kits! In the spirit of the season and for those of you who might be wrapping up some presents today, I made a set of holiday tags.


The kit is called 'Christmas Trimmings' by Kerry Stewart. I used the Wizard Die Cutter and some Spellbinder's dies to make the circles and scalloped circles for these tags.


On this close up photo you can see I did a touch of hand glittering. Then I added some baker's twine and little red buttons. One of the things I love about digital products is that you can go to Two Peas in a Bucket now and download these immediately. No need to run to the craft store or wish you had ordered something on-line weeks ago!


My next project is a hybrid card using another new kit called 'Reindeer Games' by Betsy Tuma.


This card was made for one of our neighbors. I intended to make all the neighbors baked goodies, but I just didn't have the time to make enough cookies and candy for everyone so we gave some handmade cards instead.


My last digital share was created with a sweet kit called 'Pick Me' from Polka Dot Pixels.


I adore this image from the 'Pick Me'  kit and he papers are so colorful and fun! The scalloped circle and sentiment tag are also made from Spellbinder's dies. That adorable little flower shaped button is new from
Doodlebug Designs
. Love their new line of buttons!


That concludes my crafty shares for today. Once again, I wish you and your family the best Christmas! I'll be excited to hear all about it and see some photos next week. Enjoy! :) Kathy

What a great view of your tree, my dear! Looks so beautiful all lit up at night. And what sweet crafty projects these are. Love the tags. So useful and so cute all at the same time. The reindeer card just makes me smile. What a funky and fun little guy he is. And how wonderful is that sweet vintage image. Great stuff!
