A tag inspired by Tim's 12 tags of Christmas

Hope you all had a wonderful christmas time. It sure was cosy indoors here with freezing temperatures outside... brrrrrrrr

I had no plan and I just started with some die cuts and collected left over materials from previous projects to create my Christmas tag inspired by Tim's 12 days of Christmas. Thought I make a list this time what I use for the tag, wow, I did not realise I used that much! Anyway, I cut... I painted... I inked and grunged ~smile~. The flower is made of felt and I used the alcohol ink to color the acrylic leaf beads.

Exploding box

Yippee.... my hubby bought for me a Martha Stewart Scoring Board! It was on my (never ending wish) list forever :)

My first project using the scoring board is this exploding box. I made it as a gift, The inside can be used to add photo's and journalling, it contains 6 mini notecards and 6 matching envelopes. Ohhhh how I loooove my board :)

I used 7 Gypsies paper (Calais), cardstock in a matching colour and the Martha Stewart Butterfly punch. The idea came from Papercrafts Love Affair , I just made it a bit smaller.

Happy Christmas and... some fun
