Just Magnolias - Christmas Projects!

Friday already again - weeks just flying by and now.. it is time to do Christmas projects??? WOWOW! This has to be the fastest year ever!

This week the at Just Magnolias is to have some fun and anything goes! I am going to get a bit ahead and make a Christmas project.  I pulled out my Sizzix Pillow Box die again :0)  Love Love Love that die! Twice in one week, you gonna get tired of these things?

I knew I was going to use the Graphic 45 Christmas Past papers, I found this wonderful bell pattern in the collection and it reminded me of Tilda ringing the bell stamp. I colored her with Copics to match the paper, and then stamped the image on a piece of the pattern paper that coordinates with the bell pattern paper, I paper pieced all the trim on her coat and hat. Yes.. that was some very small paper piecing! LOL But I love how that came out. I cut the image with Nesties Labels... eleven I think. and then inked the edges and all over with distressing ink.  And how do you like the scroll work behind the image? That is a Spellbinders fancy tag die that I cut in half and attached to the back of the image. Oh sprayed the card stock first with Gold Smooch Spritz. before I attached to the image.

The pattern paper is then layered with the coordinating paper, and then punched cream colored card stock with Martha's border punch, inked and then sprayed with Gold Smooch Spritz  this is so pretty and I used it all over the elements of this card.
Yes, even sprayed the sentiment - cut out with a Spellbinders tag die, inked then sprayed. I attached to the card and then covered the two little holes with sage green rhinestones.
Then all of this was attached to my sage green pillow box! Don't know who this gift is for, or what I am going to put in it, but love it anyway!

Now go and visit Just Magnolia's and see all the other DT Christmas projects!!! Really great inspiration this week!

Have a great Friday  - HUGS and -

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is required to get setup? I'm
assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
I'm not very web savvy so I'm not 100% sure. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

ӏ don't drop a lot of responses, but i did a few searching and wound up here "Just Magnolias - Christmas Projects!". And I actually do have a few questions for you if you do not mind. Is it simply me or does it look as if like a few of these remarks come across like coming from brain dead individuals? :-P And, if you are writing at additional places, I'd
like to κеep up wіth anything new yоu have
to ρoѕt. Would you mаke a list of the

like your Facеbook page, tωitteг feed, or linkedin prοfile?
