Christmas Projects

Hi everyone - hope you all have had a happy Christmas. Been working on a couple of Bakers Dozen layouts - but as I'm in Scotland have had to take over my Dad's PC - don't tell him how many new fonts I've downloaded :) - not to mention pixresizer and a couple of photoshop brushes.

I just couldn't resist creating a layout with a photo of a work colleague wearing his christmas dinner - I didn't know one spoonful of curry could cause such a large stain!
Used Shimelle Laines Christmas Memories page template, snowflake stickers and Wrap it up Christmas papers from Two Peas in a Bucket.

My second layout is of the Christmas Cards I made this year. Found the idea for Easel Cards on Splitcoast stampers and went a bit overboard - it's a really easy design to make and does allow you to make them as simple or as involved as you like. Used the Wrap it up Christmas papers to make the Christmas Tree embellishments, snowflake stickers as journal spots and penned words Christmas - all by Shimelle Laine at Two Peas in a Bucket.

Tim's Twelve Tags of Christmas

I've been following Tim Holtz's 12 tags of christmas. I love his techniques and his stamps and all the Ranger products. This is the first year I've actually done them all, usually just do a couple or just use the techniques. I don't have all the products he used so improvised on some - even made my own brads - don't have an i-top so covered some large brads with wadding then put the sticky canvas over the top! I didn't win anything from Tim's blog even though I commented every day :(

Jennie at The Artistic Stamper is doing a fantastic blog candy if you've done any of tims tags - post a link here http://theartisticstamper.blogspot.com/2009/12/tagtastic-blog-candy.html
