back to the scrappiness!

So it's been a while since I've posted anything scrappy related...for obvious reasons. I worked on a few Christmasy things before Olivia got sick so I thought I'd share a few.

First, I started playing with some Christmas tags using plain 'ol shipping tags that you can get at any office supply store. The ones I used measure 4 3/4"x2 3/8" so they're a good size for using on a present, gift bag or even on the front of a card. 

I ran them through my Sizzix with the Snowflakes embossing folder and then distressed the edges and added some Christmas accents. The red felt snowflakes were actually a big roll of felt ribbon that I found at Target. I stamped the Christmas trees on white cardstock, cut them out, mounted them with pop dots and added some green crystals. Add some red & white baker's twine and you're all set!

Here's something else I came up with, again using my Sizzix machine. This time I used a Christmas tree die to cut some trees out of corrugated cardboard as a fun holiday accent.

I used one of these trees last year to decorate the front of my December Daily album:

You can check out the entire album here (scroll down for all of the posts).

I just added some buttons & string and you have a cute embellishment for albums, scrapbook pages, cards, etc.

Well, I'm off in a few hours for my date with a werewolf! Daddy has IV duty tonight ;)
