Christmas Tags with Eureka! Stamps by Lisa In the Crafting Cave

To create this tag I colored the image with COPICs on Xpress It cardstock, I used Lawn Fawn's Tag You're It Die Cut and just extended the cut down my paper to give me a more elongated tag. All the papers are from American Crafts 6 x 6 Holiday Paper Pad with matching washi tape purchased at AC Moore. If you live near an AC Moore and love 6 x 6 Paper Pads, GO! At $2.50 a pad you can't go wrong plus they offer military discount of 15%!
 Finishing off with Jillibean Soup Adhesive Sequins.

SVG Attic Round Traveling Case, SVG Attic Mourner's Hat, DCWV Hand-Painted Christmas, DCWV Merry Memories Stack

For my first project I created a Round Traveling Case from the JGW Fabulously French Collection using 12 x 12 papers from the DCWV Hand-Painted Christmas Stack. This case will make a perfect Hostess Gift when attending those Holiday Parties. You could fill with candy, cookies, handmade holiday cards, ornaments, and so much more!

What a great way to gift ornaments!

I embossed all the straps, covered brackets with gold embossing powder and secured with gold brads.

Always remember the backside of projects. 
I used square brads on the back to dress it up a bit and I think it's just as pretty as the front.

Loving the gold heat embossed brackets and gold brads. 

I adorned it with the Pine Cones, from the SVG Attic JGW Santa's Repose, covered in Frantage tied with ribbon, a few mini ornaments and the tag is from the DCWV Hand-Painted Christmas Stack. I picked that tag specifically to gift ornaments in this travel case.

For my second project I used the Mourner's Hat from the JGW Raven's Request  from SVG Attic and DCWV Merry Memories Stack to create a Carolers Hat. I love this hat because you can use it for anything! You can see a Spring Version I made here.

I also used the Jingle Bells, Sprigs of Spruce and Holly Leaves from the JGW Santa's Repose Collection to dress this hat up. Filling in with a few snowed covered twigs and berry clusters covered in red glitter. This makes a beautiful tree topper, just be careful to keep lights away from it.

Poinsettia Wreath with SVG Attic




Lisa, from In The Crafting Cave with Lisa, with you today and super excited to be sharing 
First, I want to say thank you to Angeline Choo, I-Team member, for inspiring me to use Poinsettias. See I've never been a big fan but when I saw her cards and how beautiful they were I wanted to give it go. You can see her amazing Poinsettia cards over on her blog, Scrappy Scrappy.
 
 
 I cut out the tent card with red cardstock from my stash. Using Kringle and Co. 6x6 papers
I cut out the wreath, poinsettias, inserts and card face. I added red self stick gems in the center of 
each flower.

 
I hope you had an amazing Thanksgiving and if you're traveling, safe travels.
Thank you for stopping by today.
