Prima Doll Bag and Tag Swap

I'm bringing you my design for a Prima Doll Bag and Tag Swap I was in over at Scraps of Color hostessed by Mary Joyce.  My partner was Kharmyn better known as KC.  Her theme was Happy Birthday with a black/red combo, which happens to be one of my favorite combos! It was a joy to work with.

Christmas in July 5 of 5

Shout out to Shawnna for posting the Christmas in July Creative Challenge at Scraps of Color.  I have had the most Amazing time creating my projects for Christmas.  Now it's time to store them where they can be easily accessible when I start decorating.  This is my 5th project of 5 and I will share the other projects at the end.  It's a Christmas tree card holder cut out from a corrugated board.  I applied a coat of Gesso before I applied Olive Green acrylic paint on top.  I edged the sides and bottom with Tim Holtz Brushed Corduroy ink (my fav)....wish I could find some more!  My vision was altering the clothes pins, but I just covered them with red paint and glitter. I found the ornaments in my Christmas stash waiting to be used.  I double tied Lawn Fawn lawn trimming to put on top of the ornaments and put the snowflakes down on an angle topped with bling.

The topper

 I found a few Christmas cards I made last year. Now imagine it with cards!

There will be no reason for me to purchase any more Christmas bags.  I got a handful of natural bags from Michaels and headed for my stash.  This is the front and back view of the bag I made for Scraps of Color Christmas in July challenge.  All it needs is some tissue paper and a gift.  My 5th project is in the making..........Check back later today.

Christmas in July 3 of 5

ATC's are SNOW much fun!  I had about three packages of snowmen and thought why not do ATC's and NO I am not dreaming of a white Christmas. If you noticed, I said 3 of 5 because at Scraps of Color is having a  Christmas in July challenge to complete five projects by July 30th.  I also made a box to put my ATC's in.  The paper is from Teresa Collins Checking It Twice paper pad.  What I love most about ATC's is that you use everything from your stash.

 ATC's featuring the Snow Family
 The box was quick and easy!
 All ready to send out!
