Christmas Eve

This is Rosie from As Seen In My Scrapbook with my take on another fabulous sketch by Nanne. Pulling out all my Christmas products for Christmas cards and December Daily motivated me to finally scrap these photos from last Christmas ;))

As you can see, I've turned this single page sketch in to a double page layout, the easiest way to do so is to duplicate the 2nd page as a "mirror image" of the sketch.

Here is a closer look at the left side:

and now the right side:

Here's another shot of the 2 pages together.

JOY: Die Cut Challenge

Welcome to this week's die cut challenge with Stuck on U Sketches! This is Vivian and I would like to share with you my latest home decor with you.

It is the 'JOY' file from Scrapping Bug Designs.

I found the perfect frame for it at Michael's and voila! It's really that simple.

Remember: The challenge is "Anything Christmas". Simple, right?

Please visit my blog for extra details on supplies and bonus photos.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Since this project is in a frame behind glass, I had to make sure
to keep the letters and mice "flat".

Dress Up Your Gift Bag - Die Cut Challenge, Anything Christmas

Hi, This is Helen from Living My Given Life, to share a project with you that I created as my design team project for the Die Cut Challenge - Anything Christmas.

I have been making some handmade gifts, gift boxes and bags. Today I would like to share with you how I decorate a plain kraft gift bag.


There are many ways you can decorate or dress up a plain paper gift bag. For my bag, I added a big paper doily (8"). You can find any sizes of paper doily at baking section at craft store or even Walmart. I glued the paper doily using Liquid Glass, this is an all-purpose liquid glue that dries fast and strong.

On top of the doily, I added a big paper rosette that I cut using my Silhouette machine. I cut 2 piece of 3" wide rosette cutting file from Lori Whitlock and glued them together to make a big rosette.

For the tag, I cut the tag shape from Lori Whitlock tag mini album with frame, added a ribbon bow, felt christmas tree. The sentiment I used one of the Paper Smooches holiday stamp set, stamped it on a piece watercolor paper after I sprayed little water to give a watercolor effect using dye ink. And finished it with a mini clothe pin.

I added the finished tag on the paper rosette using Liquid Glass.

You still have time to come and play along with us this week! Link up your projects here to share with us! I am looking forward to see them! Have a Merry Christmas!
