Walking In A Winter{tide} Wonderland

Hi everyone!

I thought I would stop by and show you just a little bit of Christmas goodness.  It seems weird that I have been creating Christmas projects while it's still 100 plus degrees outside.  I'm so ready for Christmas time...and some cooler weather.  Thankfully, the weather has finally dropped to the 80's here in sunny California.

All of the following projects were created using Lifestyle Crafts Wintertide release.  I love this release.  So much fun!  And you can use the coupon code GLITTER any time you shop at LifestyleCrafts.com to save 20% off your order.  Isn't that wonderful?



First up I have an ornament/gift topper I created.  I used a bit of vintage glitter to make the snowflake sparkle on top of a doily rosette.  I tucked some tulle in behind.  This would be a beautiful addition to any gift!  The snowflake set from Lifestyle Crafts has five different snowflakes that you can use to layer and create all kinds of fabulousness.











Next up....a cup cozy fit for Mrs. Clause.  Loving the new Drink Sleeve die!  I used it to create a cup cozy oozing with Christmas cheer...but this could be used all year long.  And don't be surprised if you see more of these cup cozies coming your way.








Finally, what would Christmas crafting be without some cards and gift tags?  After all, they are probably the most used of all of the Christmas crafts.  I've created a set of tags using the Tree Punches Die and the Tag It Kit.


On this Cozy Christmas card, I used the Sweater Tag die and the Snowflake Die, along with some digital paper by Lifestyle Crafts.




This Letterpress Christmas card was so much fun to create, using a nontraditional color scheme.  I also had to add a little touch of shimmer with some crystal gems and a glitter scallop border I created using the Edge It Kit.


Hope you found a little bit of Christmas inspiration in this post.  After all, it is the Most Wonderful Time of the Year.  Why not start celebrating early and get a jump on your Christmas crafting.  I'd love to hear which project on this post is your favorite...it just might be my next video tutorial.

You can check out the entire Wintertide release at Lifestyle Crafts' website.

Have a fabulous day!
