Tim Holtz Holiday RosetteTree

So shortly after I added the Set of 3 Rosettes to my store, I noticed Tim Holtz had a blog post out showing how to use rosettes to make a holiday tree. Of course I had to try it (with a few modifications based on what I had on hand for supplies) and it turned out so cute!

Here's the full tree. I covered an artificial tealight candle for the base, and rolled some light cardboard into a tube for the tree trunk, then covered it with jute. Before assembling the tree, I brushed the rosettes with a little Peeled Paint Distress ink, and spritzed them with Dew Drop Glimmer Mist for a little holiday shimmer. I also used little pieces of straw between each layer of the tree to separate them a bit more.

For the topper, I tied three little jingle bells together with red string, tied the string in a couple bows and then hot glued the bells to the top of the tree.

And of course, due to the irresistible bells and string, I had a little company when I was trying to take pictures of my tree. :-)

Happy Holidays everyone!

Snowflake & Tulle Gift Tag

Yesterday I posted some free Gift Tag cutting files, and I've challenged myself to get a little creative with them, and hopefully inspire you a little bit as well! So here is my first gift tag.

 If you want to play along, the supplies you will need are:
  • Card stock to cut the gift tags, preferably two coordinating colors
  • Embossing folder & embosser (I used the Swiss Dots folder by Provocraft and my Sizzix Texture Boutique)
  • A large square of tulle
  • A snowflake embellishment (I used the snowflake from this gift tag freebie, the video explains how I dressed it up)
  • Two coordinating colors of ribbon
  • One eyelet
  • One small charm
  • Adhesive
  • Thread or fishing line
And here's the video showing you how I put the tag together.  I hope you enjoy it.

Seems like everyone's talking tags these days, with all the holiday wrapping there is to be done. So I created a few tags using the technique I showed you in this video and thought I'd share them with you! Tomorrow I'll be posting pictures of a tag I made using one of the cut files, along with a video showing how I put the tag together. But for today, here's the free download. Just click on the preview image to download the files. As always, MTC, SVG and now PDF files are included in the free download. Enjoy!

Getting Creative with Embossing and Inking

I've been experimenting a lot lately with creating my own backgrounds from plain cardstock to design something totally unique and it's a lot of fun!  In this video, I show you how to use embossing (I use my Sizzix Texture Boutique) and some Tim Holtz Distress inks to create a fun effect.
