Vintage Christmas Wishes

Hello everyone and happy christmas, I have not been around for quite a few days in fact almost 2 weeks, dont ask me where the time has gone, I just havent had enough hours in each day,

at last I am back on track all my christmas cards are now all finished and posted off.

Here is my last one which I made last evening after doing a little blog hopping I came across some fabby blogs which have vintage images. This image is from a fantastci blog called artfreebies. click on the link and it'll take you there, its not to be missed.I think this is gonna be my new projects in 2010, heading down the vintage trail as there are some beautiful images out there. I can see this new phase coming in lol its clouding over me right now......

This card is for an old friend, a very old friend lol. I hope she is not reading this lol.

It was nice to finally make the last christmas card but I had fun making this one as its a new way for me using the vintage photos, I love it. I distress the photo by creasing the corner and scratching the print off also added ink to the edges and then stamped over the top with a stampin up postage mark. The papers are from HOTP vintage and the stamped mistletoe is desert sand memento ink.

snowflake tags with box

I am late this evening as I have been busy making christmas cards today, trying to catch up as usual.

I wanted to show you this little gift tag box I made last week, I saw this box back in the summer from stampin gal making a box with stampin up products, of which I got the instructions, I have just got round to making this little gift box of tags, of which I made snowflakes, using stampin up stamps and distress ink.

Each tag has 4 scalloped circles back and front have snowflake, the 2 centre tags have to and from and the other has a little something for a little someone.
I have placed 12 tags in the box, showing the snowflakes in 2 of the partitions, to and from in another and in the last a little something for a little someone. to show off the tag I have added 1 to the outside of the box and tied it to the ribbon.
The acetate wrap around the box is using a foiled acetate from kanban.
These are lovely little boxes and so easy to make I want to make more of these after christmas with everyday tags inside I really enjoyed making this one.
Hope you like it.....x
