you're gearing up for these last few days before Christmas. That means shopping, wrapping, checking lists, and finalizing work issues. I LOVE the holidays. It's a time I'm guaranteed to have all my family together. It's a time for sharing, laughter, and good food. As we enter these last few hectic days I want to invite you all to take it all in. Don't rush. Sit back and enjoy the holiday for what it is. And, be sure to give yourself some time too!
We have more wonderful holiday projects to share with you today. First up are these gift card holders from DT member Brenda.
Gift cards are very popular these days and there's no better way to give them than in a handmade holder. On this one, Brenda used the Quickutz Revolution Santa and the Quickutz Jolly Gift Set.
Here, Brenda used the Quicktuz Snowflake, the Quickutz corner, and the Boss Kut Merry Christmas expressionable. Who wouldn't love to receive a gift card wrapped up in one of these?!
Our next project for today comes from DT member Veronica. She created this card...
with the Quickutz Jolly Gift Set. Veronica also made this box craker.
It was cut with the Silhouette, the star was cut with the Spellbinders Nestabilities and she added some holly leaves to her tag from the Quickutz Jolly Gift Set. Both projects are great and could be done rather quickly.
This next project is a wall hang. Our very own CraftyDeb designed this to fit inside a 12x12 frame.
On this lovely layout CraftyDeb used the Quickutz Tree 12" Border, a variety of the Quickutz animal dies, and the Quickutz Nutmeg font. The next one she made is 8 1/2x11.
This time, CraftyDeb used the Quickutz Paper Dolls, the Revolution Nativity Manger, and the Quickutz Lamb. These would look great hanging on your wall next to your tree!
The last projects I want to show you today come from DT members Brenda and Jenn.
This Magic Reindeer Food Ornament was created by Brenda. She used the Quickutz Tree Border to create the antlers. Isn't this darling?!
Here is Jenn's version:
Jenn chose to make hers a bag and she created the handmade topper with Scenic Route papers, the Quickutz Santa in his sleigh and Reindeer and the Rollerskate font. These dies are retired but the shapes are still available as downloads for the Silhouette.
There are many different recipes and poems out there for Magic Reindeer Food. Here's just one of them...
1/2 cup uncooked oatmeal
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup red or green sugar crystals (as used for cake decorating)
Be sure to take this magic food and sprinkle on the lawn,
On Christmas, Santa's reindeer travel miles before the dawn.
The smell of oats and glitter path will guide them on their way
And you'll wake up to Santa's gifts next morn on Christmas Day!
