8 Months 'Til Christmas Blog Hop

Welcome Back Crafty Friends!

Did you know there are only 8 Months until Christmas? You are probably wondering why am I counting down already and why am I rushing the holidays when we just started enjoying warmer weather?  

I can be a...

Last month, I joined a group of fellow crafters who wanted to get a jump start on their holidays cards. I NEVER have enough cards since I am so busy. I decided to try to plan ahead and create a couple cards each month, so I can have a small pile by December.

This month, I wanted to add to the Christmas card idea. Not only do I not have enough cards, but I need more tags too.

Here are my Christmas projects:
Die Cut
Joys of the Season cartridge ~ tag cut at 3 1/2" and ornament cut at 2 1/2"
Jolly Holidays ~ wreath cut at 2"
red, green, gold, blue and cream card stock
Bo Bunny paper
red glitter glue
blue and green ink
My Pink Stamper stamp

Here is a link for free Christmas digis...BirdCards
paper from Christmas scraps
green ribbon
green and red gems
Crayola colored pencils

  5. Georgiana, I love your tags and cards. I have made tags in the past but never seem to attach them with the crazy rush at the end. Maybe I will have to start making them again :)
