Tidings of Comfort & Joy

Yesterday Gemma (@stampalicious) and I hosted our monthly Craft Workshop. Naturally, being so close to Christmas we had some festive creations for our attendees.

I chose to use the Tags & Tidings Bundle, which is fab as one stamp, and one framelit create 16 cute little tags.

As the tags are quite small I decided to stick them onto some circles I punched out in my leftover Festive Farmhouse DSP and Crumb Cake card. I decorated the tags using my Stampin’ Blends, Rhinestone Basic Jewels, and Gold Twine.

I used half of the tags to create this Christmas card inspired by @paulinespapier. I kept it simple with Merry Merlot ink and linen thread.

The ladies said making these was very therapeutic, which was lovely to hear.

I also made some tiny little treat jars for each attendee, using Festive Farmhouse paper, cut down to 1 1/4″ x 6″ to cover the little jars.

Can you guess what was inside?

I decorated it with a small tag from Santa’s Signpost in Crumb Cake, stamped with a small sentiment, again in Merry Merlot, and tied on with gold twine. On the top of the jar I popped an official Santa seal from the Signs of Santa stampset. I covered this with an epoxy circle (you can get these on Amazon) to make it look like an actual seal.

Gemma made some gorgeous bags for our attendees, using the beautiful Sheet Music stamp, Large Letters and matching Festive Farmhouse DSP. I absolutely loved the tartan/kraft combo.

The class was really lovely, and put us all in the festive mood.

All of the products used above can be found on my online shop, be quick though as they retire this month.
