Yeah, this month I was ON TIME for the Lollishops Design Team reveal. I have been working on things ever since I got my kit a few weeks ago and it really helped me get in the groove for the holiday cards and tags I am making for upcoming holiday boutiques and maybe a swap or two.
I received a bunch of fun vintage holiday goodies compiled by Sadie of Lollishops and this months sponsor Chocolate Letters who has some great, inspirational supplies and goodies.
Initially I wanted to make an advent calendar with my goodies but I was unable to find the form I wanted so my pile of inspiration turned into a pile of projects. I was really inspired to create useable items as opposed to knicky knacky "sit arounds" because I am in major purge mode. I started with a couple of gift boxes embellished with goodies from the kit like this cute felty Santa and cool ribbons. And I can't wait to give someone a treat in this cute round one embellished with a little vintage house and snow trimmed in old sheet music, crepe paper and vintage lace...
Next I moved onto another fun project which my daughter and her little friends have been coveting. Some fun Christmas wands! I made several but this one was the one I used my design team goodies on:
This of course led to some ornaments which were heavily inspired by my friend Karin. I am especially loving the white and gold one with the vintage bells from Chocolate Letters. (Sorry the picture is not great)
I imagine by now this post is getting pretty wonky with pictures and text but please bear with me.
Finally I want to share some tags and cards I created with the goodies from this kit. I got some cute collage images and various tag bits which I cut up and used in various projects. I plan to make some stuff that would be cute with one of these gift tags attached.
I love to make greeting cards and as I mentioned before this challenge really kick started me to get moving on my holiday cards. These are just a couple of the stack I made which I will
also share as the holidays get closer.
By the way, I haven't hosted a card swap for a while and its getting a bit late for a big organized swap, but if anyone would like to do a small 3 for 3 or so card swap with me, please let me know. I haven't done any swaps for awhile and I miss it!!
If you have made it this far with me in this post Thank You! Here is the good part. leave me a comment with a way to contact you and I will enter your name in a drawing to win a box of holiday goodies (both finished items and some bits and pieces to create with). Thanks for reading!!
