I made these two Christmas tags and added quilled strips to accent the stamped images. They have a really sophisticated look, but didn’t take much time. Looks like I need to glue that corner down a bit better! Two days until Christmas. Wow, this month has flown by. Happy Christmas Eve Eve, everyone!
I needed some pretty little treats to give to my lady friends who meet at the park every week, so I got out my die cut machine and made these. I wanted to show you some pics of how cute these little things turned out. I used my BigShot die cut […]
