It has been an interesting week with Chuck gone to China and trying to get everything done that I need to get done by Thursday...finally gave in and realized that I had to be completely nuts to set such unrealistic goals for myself.
My desk is a mess...part of the goal setting for the week. I keep lists but it seems I keep getting side tracked and things keep piling up on the desk. On the right you can see a canvas I have created for a class at WLS next month. Here is a closer look at it!
This is made with Graphic 45 papers and a 12x12in canvas. I glued a piece of holly paper to the canvas then cut out the Santa and other paper bits from Graphic 45 paper. The Holly under the bow is using the Tim Holtz die and Stampin Up! card stock. I love glitter so I used Stickles to brighten it all up!
The tag towards the back in the middle is for another class in December and I am thinking about using it in a swap I signed up for.
I had started a second tag for that swap but I love the blue green color of evergreen bough in the Seasonal Distress inks from Ranger. The second tag has a red ornament but it just doesn't spark my follow through today. I love this Tim Holtz snowman die called Winter Wonder Bigz die from Sizzix paired with the Snow Flurries edge die! I used glitter on this piece too cause it seemed not as snowy without it! I am entering it in the Simon Says Stamp and Show...some tickets challenge this week!
I completed a candy tin also this week for gift giving and another class.
I used Little Yellow Bicycle papers and the Tim Holtz/Sizzix die called Tattered Pine Cone to make the flower and the pine cones! It took a little work to get the hang of making pine cones and after watching the video by the man himself I realized I could make the roses and the pine cones for this project.
A little different view of the flower and pine cones on the band that holds the box together!
Okay that's it for my book writing today. I hope you enjoyed the pictures. Drop by Julias Stamping Ground and check out WOYWW and do like I am doing grabbing a cup and snooping through the other blogs. Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
