This week at The Cutting Cafe the Design Team got to choose any file we wanted.
I love these kind of weeks. The team always comes up with some amazing projects.
I decided to start getting ready for Christmas with my projects.
FYI...Christmas is sneaking up on us! Only 7 weeks, which is 52 and 1/2 days. HERE is an official Christmas Countdown Clock just in case you can't keep your day's straight like me.
Ok, on to my projects. I made a gift bag using the Gift Bag - Large file.
This bag is crazy easy to put together. The best part about this file is that you can use it for ANY occasion. Birthdays, Valentine's Day, Just Because, Baby Showers, House Warmings...you get the idea.
The gorgeous papers I used are designed by Shellie Geigle. You can find them and the 2 other fabulous paper packs that she designed at J&S Hobbies and Crafts.
These papers are AWESOME quality.
I couldn't find a snowflake border that I liked in Cricut Design Space so I made my own using different snowflake images. I inked the edges with Tim Holtz gathered twigs Distress Ink and then embellished the snow fakes with flat back pearls from Glitz N Glam Girly Boutique.
I used seam binding from Gone Artsy to make the bow.
The holly is a die from Tim Holtz/Sizzix. The set is called Holiday Greens.
I embellished the holly with tiny red puff balls.
Because I LOVE Christmas, Regina's files and these papers from J&S Hobbies and Crafts so much I had to do a second project. For this one I used the 3D Christmas Ornament Set.
