Happy Friday blogging friends. I had the greatest assortment of costumed kids stop by my house last night. I loved it :) I even saw my special girl Callie dressed up as Bat Girl. Denise, I wish you were here to see what an awesome little girl you have.
With Halloween over, I feel no guilt in jumping straight into Christmas paper crafting mode. This past week I worked with the Tradition collection from Authentique. This is such a wonderful collection with lots of traditional and yet trendy papers. Aren't these chevrons great! Every year I make ornaments for some of my co-workers. They work great to add some pizazz to a package or a gift bag. This one is 3 dimensional and cut from a Silhouette file.
I also wanted to show you how simple making your own Christmas cards can be.
This is literally just a journal tag cut from a sheet of pattern paper. I glammed it up with some beautiful Want2Scrap pearls and gorgeous Snug Hub Seam Binding. Then I added some faux stitching around the edges. Easy Peasy.
