Rocking Around The Christmas Tree with Craftin Desert Divas

Good Morning! Just popping in to share this cutie Rocking Christmas Tree from  Craftin Desert Divas.
I used my Cameo Sketch Pens to sketch the sheet music and cut out the printed image,  then I layered it on white cardstock, green cardstock, DCWV Merry Memories glitter paper. Finished off with a Darice Self Stick Gem.

Christmas Tags with Eureka! Stamps Challenge Blog

It's official, Christmas is upon us! And this challenge is a wonderful way for you  to get a jump on your Christmas Tags. I love making tags and I don't make them often enough. So I had a lot fun creating this tag using Digital Image 23301 Package Stack from Eureka! Stamps.
Just click the link below to find it and more.

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.

Poinsettia Wreath with SVG Attic

Lisa, from In The Crafting Cave with Lisa, with you today and super excited to be sharing  a Christmas card I made using the Wreath from the SVG Winter Wishes Collection  and a Square Tent card from the Tent Card SVG Collection from SVG Attic. 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.
