Christmas Gift for Little Girl

That was a project for someone little and very brave. I just wanted to make something special for her...
I asked her mom about her favorite colors, chose the paper and decided to alter a little jewelry box...

Christmas Ornament

Before I will start on my project I would like to wish you and your families Merry Christmas and Happy New year! May peace and joy feel your house this Holiday season!

Well, when the official part is over and we can slide our poor feet in warm sleepers and wear some comfortable jammies, now is the time to take you slowly into my last before Christmas 2012 creation...

Yes, it is Christmas ornament with a little baggy in traditional red and gold Christmas colors...
Inspiration came from YT community - so many wonderful creations, ideas, and the last push for me - was our Skype group of girls, who decided to make it last before Christmas progect. How wonderful is that!!!
I must tell you, that I never in my life decorated a Christmas ornament - it scared the cr...out of me... Seen amazing painted, glittered, stampt ornament was mind blowing for me. It all was just too much!
I am kinda chicken in some things anyway...
But, it was the right time and right amount of presure, so I went for it...



I used feathers, vintage chrochet doilies, Christmas trim and bow, WOC paper flowers, pearls and buttons. All these embellishments turned plane glass ball into amazing Christmas Ornament.

But what is a gift without wraping??? Of course I made a little tote bag for such a wonderful creation..

I hope you liked my project and our time together... Merry Christmas!
Oh, yes, here is the video for you to watch if you do not want to leave me or just to hear a Christmas message... Hugs, Natasha

Vintage Gift Bag

I just got on the roll while working on this project... It came out so pretty.. Here some pictures for you to see...
 
I die cut the edge with TH die on the edge
 

For the background I used large doily and started layering stuff on it... Cut out using Spellbinders a Christmas blue printed paper by My Mind Eye...
 stamped the type writer on white cardstock and cut it out....
added a real feather as a wrighting feather in old days...
 now just roll a script from printed or stamped paper... just like that...

wrap the cord around it and secure it with a real wax seal...

Thank you so much for following me here on my blog...

Christmas Tags Tutorial

This is such fun and very fast progect...
 
 
You are going to need: tag, distress inks, blender, H2O, heating gun, stamp with Memento inks - the most impostant thing - time and mood to create...
Here we go...
1. Take your tag and start inking it around on the edges using different inks with your blending tool
2. Take a water spritser and spray a small amount of H2O into your hand and kind off shake it on to the tag... Use your hitting gun to dry your tag...

3. Stamp or print your image on the tag...

And you are going to have something like that...

Here is the video in pictures if you like to watch - and not to read... ha-ha!
