Cheery Christmas Cheer!

As my little bio states to the right...
I love playing Christmas music in July, as well as in August,
September, October...you get the point :)  
My favorite station for Christmas tunes on Pandora is either 
Bing Crosby or Dean Martin.
Man, I just love the old crooners...does anyone 
(aside from Michael Buble and Harry Connick, Jr)
sing like that anymore?
*sigh*
So you know I had the 'ole Marshmallow World cranked
up as I crafted these projects for the 
IMAGINISCE & CHEERY LYNN DESIGNS
BLOG HOP

For these tags, I used standard shipping tags which can be
found at most any office supply store.

 

 For the "tree" tag, I used three of the Lace Corners (B165 Deco E)
to create the branches of the tree!  I cut a small strip of 
"Christmas Cheer" paper for the trunk and then machine-stitched
the 'branches' onto it. I embellished with punched circles,
Glitter Hot Rocks and a hand-cut snowflake.
For the "Santa" tag, I framed him with two of the pretty

All patterned papers and stickers are from 
Christmas Cheer by Imaginisce
For the little sentiment banners, I just printed them
out on my printer and trimmed to size.

And although this next project isn't Christmas-related, I still had 
the holiday tunes cranked.......... :)
 I love the look of a scalloped cake stand,  yet I don't own one.
So, I dressed a tiered plate stand by embellishing the inner rims 
(below where the actual plate sits) with four lengths of the beautiful
Francesca Border (B159) by Cheery Lynn Designs 
and patterned papers and stickers from the 
Hello Cupcake Collection by Imaginisce 
 

Using a 2" square punch, I created the triangle banner by folding
the squares diagonally.  I added a few of the fun Hello Cupcake die-cuts
to the top with a couple of sticky dots.  
I'm thinking this would make a great idea for Halloween
and Christmas party treats as well.
