Merry Christmas!

Here is my Christmas card for this year. Having grown up with origami I was excited to bring a little bit of my heritage into this card. The original inspiration came from a post I saw on Pinterest. Later I googled "origami tree" since many of you asked about instructions after I posted my Christmas card preview. Here are the step-by-step instructions courtesy of "Pixie too". After making 50 of these cards I would recommend that you use a scoring board instead of a bone folder especially for the smaller pieces.

I hope all of you have a safe and happy holiday and wonderful new year!

OWH - Sketch #150

Here is my take on Operation Write Home's Sketch #150. I started with a Christmas theme in mind but ended up using Stampin' Up's new Feeling Sentimental Set (available January 1st).

Christmas Card Preview

As usual my great idea for this year's Christmas card turned out to be quite an effort but the results were well worth it. Below are some preview pictures of my card.  Now I just need to get them all in the mail.

OWH - Sketch #148 and #149

Here are sketches #148 and #149 from Operation Write Home. I'm very happy with how they both turned out. The bird was recycled from another card swap and the felt ornament worked perfectly as the circular centerpiece for #149.

Tim Holtz - 12 Tags of 2012 (December)

What a great way to end a year of tags. This month's December tag is Christmas themed (of course) but there's also a bonus tag from January 2012.  Once again I'm using all Stampin' Up! products when available but there are two non Stampin' Up! items; the poinsettia bling and the crackle paint on January's tag.   Hopefully, I succeeded in demonstrating that you didn't have to go out and buy all new products to emulate Tim Holtz's technique.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog and I'd like to wish you all a safe and happy holiday season.  At the bottom of my post is a link to all 12 tags.  I can't say that I had a favorite but I was amazed every month at what I could create.
