Cheery Christmas Cheer!

As my little bio states to the right...
I love playing Christmas music in July, as well as in August,
September, 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?
So you know I had the 'ole Marshmallow World cranked
up as I crafted these projects for the 

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.
Don't miss all of the great ideas shared by both the
Imaginisce and Cheery Lynn Design Teams this week!
PLUS, both blogs will be giving away a prize pack to some
lucky commentors:

Have a wonderful weekend, friends!

♥A little about me♥  I'm currently designing for Doodlebug Design and Scrapbook Adhesives and have had the honor of serving on 20+ manufacturers or retailer  design teams over the years!  When I'm not working as a school administrative assistant, you can almost  always find me crafting cuteness for my Etsy Shop: Dot & Whimsy :) Aside from paper-crafting, I also enjoy making jewelry, cross-stitch, embroidery,  home decorating, reading and watching reality TV. But enough about little 'ole me...let's get on to the give-a-way!

A SN@P December Daily

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee! Isn't this just the greatest idea, ever?  (scrapbooking wise, anyway) Welcome to my contribution to the  SIMPLE STORIES  DECEMBER DAILY BLOG HOP I'm so glad that you're joining us...I can't wait to hop around myself and see how the girls have decorated their SN@P Albums December Daily style :)
**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
