 Bow it All tool!!

Vintage inspired Christmas tag

Hello Friends!!
Today I would like to share with you a simple 
Christmas tag that I designed using some odds and ends from a couple of my digital Collage Sheets and goodies from
Really Reasonable Ribbon.
The Merry Christmas Text boxes and Christmas tree came from my Traditional Mitten Collage Sheet set.  Pugsley came from my Vintage Pink Christmas Mitten set.
 Candi Fix it foam pads were used to elevate my Tree and Christmas gift.  Scor Tape was used to hold down the wide gingham ribbon and Merry Christmas text boxes.
Here are a couple close ups.
I used my Zutter Bow it All tool to create my Red Gingham bow.  Fauna Glitter was applied to the outer portion of my Bingo Base, Pugsley and text boxes.  Just peachy was used on the gift, Ensalada on the tree.
I wrapped the Peppermint Baker's twine around my package and my Christmas Tree and used it to tie a sweet little bow in my vintage button.
One last look at the finished tag.
Thank you for visiting!!

I hope that you have a Happy Holiday!

Victorian Boy Christmas Stocking Collage Sheet & Ornament

Hello Friends!!
I hope you all have a lovely weekend!
Today I would like to share with you a new collage sheet that I designed.
It is  my 
I have to say...I LOVE it...lol.
Here is a look at the sheets that you get in the set.
Pg 1
This page and the second page pieces will all line up back to back if you would like your tags or ornaments to look pretty on the back too.  Otherwise you can use a light colored paper and write a memory on the back..that would be so sweet!

Pg 2
The smaller images are great to add to tags and ATC's...
Pg 3
Pages 3 & 4 will line up also.  These are a great size for ornaments too!  They will also work great as focals on cards....
Pg 4
I used a bunch of images to create this collage.  The hardest one to see is the tiny sailboat that I created...lol.  The sail looks like a sash on my little boys shirt...but it is a boat...lol.  I guess I got a little carried away with the images....lol.
Here is an ornament that I made using the largest Image.
Couple Close ups
You can see "Pugsley" playing his trumpet :0)
While little Gabriel is holding "Pugsley's" little sister "Poodles"
You just might be able to make out the sail boat...lol
 I added a Candy Cane, Wreath...Bow...Holly...and of course the Christmas Tree.  I stuffed all kinds of goodies into this stocking!
Of course I covered it with a ton of glitter!!  So it is super sparkly!!
Here I have a photo of the large ornament next to the other pieces that come on the same sheet so you can see the sizes in comparison of each other.
I just wanted you to see how great they go with my 
Victorian Christmas Boot Ornaments...That are Girly Pink, Vintage White, Victorian Blue and Traditional Red.
The two Victorian Ladies Boots above are not finished.  I am working on a special order for Beth..she is the one that asked me to make her some stuffed ones...and when she received them...she said her hubby loved them too...lol..and that they both wanted another set of three. :0)
I think that is so sweet! I hope you enjoy my sheets...and Ornament!!
Thank you for visiting!

More Tombow Foam Tabs were used to elevate my Vintage Angel, Sentiments and #24.  
 Plaid Grey Ribbon and Blue Satin with Silver edges Ribbons were used to create some simple bows to add some dimension to my tag.  I also tied to Vintage Buttons and top of my tag with the Silver Metallic Baker's Twine.
I tucked in two candy canes and added a few 
Baby Blue Mulberry Roses, to finish off my embellishments.
Fauna, Garnet and Storm Glitters were used to give my tag some sparkly touches.
I just loved working with this month's ribbon assortment!!

Guest Designing at Gloria's Craft Hoarders Anonymous

Hello Friends!!
Today I would like to share with you three of my 
Shabby Chic Victorian Boot Christmas Ornaments that I made for 
My Guest Designer Spot at Gloria's
The theme this time is: Celebrate the Season
(hop on over to the challenge blog and get all the deets).
I was actually contacted through my Etsy shop, by Beth to see if I could make her these three ornaments, which I don't normally sell finished projects :0)...but I decided why not...I would do a tutorial.
So...she asked me if I would stuff the boots, and at first I was hesitant about that...but once I started, I LOVED them!  Of course...I am thinking I need some for myself.
I used Gold Organza to tie my bow at the top.
Here they are individually
This one was made with my
The sheets look like this
