12 Tags of 2016 - December

A last minute project again ... I'm not much into Christmas anymore, so I almost forgot this tag.

Ok, I got out my paper and stuff again and created this tag keeping pretty close to Tim's inspiration. I wasn't able to make the shadow box station work for me, so I decided completely against it and embossed and heat embossed the paper with my stitches folder, looks good to me ....

Some close ups ...

Happy Crafting ♥

My latest publications in Take Ten ♥

Ok, ok, I know I'm always a very emotional person, but this time I just couldn't stop the flood.

I received my issue of the Stampington Magazin "Take Ten" and started leafing through it since I was notified about a publication. So I found two Christmas Cards and yet one more on the next page. I was so thrilled because these were really some of my favorites and I have made and sent many of them to my friends.

But, let me tell you 56 pages further into the magazine my heart simply missed many beats. On pages 106 AND 107 Devon gave me the opportunity to show 3 ATC's I created with my favorite stamps from Darkroom Door and another 3 cards with Invoke stamps and the backgrounds from Rubber Dance Stamps designed by Bibi Lindahl. A two page coverage, I have never experienced such a feeling of pride before.

I feel blessed ♥

Aargh, it happened again, I forgot to take pictures, I tried to scan the magazine page for the Invoke ATC's ....

Sketches in Thyme #54 - December Project

Our December challenge at Sketches in Thyme - Project Life Style!

A wonderful sketch by Cherie Averill to work with .... and my interpretation:

I used Viva LasVegastamps for my moon image and the sentiment, the splash underneath is an image from Rubber Dance Stamps. 

This is the beautiful sketch!

This is my page ...

A tree or flower for MooMania!

Our new and also last challenge for 2016 at MooMania

You have two weeks to show us your projects. We can’t wait to see your creations. You may as always link all sorts of projects - not just the Moo format is permitted.
A Moo is a little card sized 2.8 x 7.1 centimeters,
or approximately 1.1 x 2.8 inches. 

Come on over to our challenge blog and join in the fun, you can't imagine all the stuff that fits on that tiny little piece :)

Can't wait to see what you come up with!
As always what you make, style, medium and materials you use,  
will be entirely up to yourselves.

Have fun and don't forget to link to your entry!

Here is my take, I used the Tim Holtz *Holiday Knit* die, the *Tree line* and the *Crescent Moon and stars* Bigz die. I colored the background with Pan Pastels.

Happy Holidays ♥

Lace Up Celebration Bulbs

 Good morning, my friends!

Today I'd like to show you some table decoration I made with the Lace Up Celebration Bulbs.

I painted them all with silver acrylic paint and stamped my fir image on each bulb. I heat embossed them with chunky powder in gold and lined them all up on a thin wire.

Ready is your Christmas decoration, for a wreath, a tree, a picture frame etc., or as in my case the table candle decoration.


Have fun crafting
