Wrapping up Christmas

Get it! "Wrapping" up Christmas?? Okay, so I baked a little too much in the hot sun today. Here is my final project using the Bo Bunny Tis The Season line from Lil' Lambs Boutique. I still have plenty of paper left after these 3 projects to still make quite a few cards and tags.

I used the Mini Card Kit of the Month, to create this cute little card. I glued the ric rac down first on my patterned paper and then I snipped the patterned paper, with my Cutterbees, right under the ric rac. You can then glue the section down on any color card.

Here's another layout of my daughter at her first Christmas. She was only a month old and fit perfectly in our Christmas Stocking. She was the best Stocking Stuffer ever.

I'm pretty sure Christmas and Stickles go together like Peanut Butter & Jelly. So, I couldn't resist cutting out these ornaments, popping them up and Stickling all the edges.

If you haven't gotten into edge punches yet, you really should try some. I love all the different looks they give the papers on my layouts. Here I used the Zig Zag embossed punch by Martha Stewart, for my photo mat.

I love the Die Cut paper that comes with the Tis The Season line of paper. I decided I would get 2 uses out of it. So I carefully cut the outside brackets off the edge.

I matted the Brackets in green and used 2 of them on the layout below.

And I used the remaining middle part for the background of my photo in this layout.

Two for one deal. You can't beat that.
