A Little Bit of Christmas in
Here is a handful of projects completed last year!
While I primary tend to lean toward card making, I do a one time a year Christmas project class.
I scan Facebook, Pinterest, and other sites for inspiration of fun 3D projects.
Stampin' Up! demonstrators and other papercrafter are a well of fun options!
The Boozy Hot Cocoa from PinkBukaroo is probably one of my favorites💞🎄
I also created Ghirardelli Square Boxes by Linda Bauwin found on YouTube.
The tags galore I fashioned from Stampin' Up! products.
A variety of tags offered inspiration for the class attendees...
Each tag came from the 2018 Stampin' Up! assorted catalogs.
I stayed with a fairly traditional color scheme.
Next, are a selection of individual tea bag holders inspired by a YouTube video created by Kylie Bertucci.
Designer Series Paper (DSP) played center stage for these simple treats.
(This may have been a retired set as it has taken me some time to incorporate DSP into my crafting.)
A mixture of tags added a fun twist.
A little bow held the tea bag in place.
Layering an assortment of tags added a new look.
Wrapped Hersey Nugget Treats is currently a staple to my 3D Christmas Project class.
This project came from Amber's 2016 video of Craft Fair Ideas.
Some of these tags came from talented crafters that shared their inspiration online with the Universe.
(While I have credited some of the creations I am posting, I am afraid my memory does not allow giving all the individual create due as these are projects from last year 😔)
Others came from a diversity of Holiday decor found in and out of my surrounding...
And still others came from old fashion playing with the supplies and noticing something new.
Following a creative play session in my craft studio, I was left with a large pile of scraps...
Tags! Of course! The small images of a heart, tree, and present created a perfect focal point!
I simply glued scraps of Designer Series Christmas Paper to a piece of Whisper White Cardstock in Tetris fashion. Each scrap connected with another until the whole sheet was covered. Once the glue dried, I used dies to cut out the images.
Sewing them to the Stitched Crumb Cake Circles, instead of adhering with glue, offered a home made quilting vibe.
Here are a few more variations.
Pompoms in Christmas decor also made their way into my Christmas crafting...Just Cute!
A little bit of tradition still holds fast along side an out of ordinary array of colors used in these tags.
After searching long and wide for a tutorial on creating a custom sized box, I finally came across Connie Stewart's Simple Stamping Box Making Shim and Custom Box Making videos. How fabulous!
Some came with Pompoms and some with Ribbon, but both sets come with a customizable box!
I continued the same color scheme for these coffee tags.
These tags garnished my annual homemade cookie boxes that I delivered.
As Christmas approached, I returned to a traditional color selection with these three money pouches I created for my nephews.
Another project came from a class I attended in the summer of last year. As soon as the the 2018 Stampin' Up! Holiday arrived, I was inspired to create a Christmas project.
The Designer Series Paper and Christmas ribbon offered the color selections.
Following a search, I also located the tutorial offered by Teri's Stampin' Magic.
I created a couple of variations of this project, but only photographed this one.
Finally, one last creations to wrap up my 2018 Christmas smorgasbord (which does not include my cards)...
A Christmas buffalo check garland perfect for a mini Christmas tree.
There is so much inspiration out there!
I am thankful to share in the talent and creativity of others that provide fun projects that I in turn can share.
I hope I have been able to pass on some inspiration to you too!
Currently, I am preparing for my 2019 Christmas in October Open House. I am back at scouring the Internet for ideas and inspiration and looking forward to sharing what I find soon.
