Guess what time it is?

That's right it's reveal time again for TSF. I loved this month's kit from My Mind's Eye. It was Christmas of course and I enjoyed the distressed feel of the papers and muted colours. I do not have a huge amount of holiday pictures so I had to search to find some. I also decided to deviate from cards this month (I'm all Christmas carded out!) and made a hanger instead. All the papers were from the kit except for some kraft cardstock on the hanger and the background sheet on the Joy layout. All the MME papers were double sided which provides endless possibilities. I used a lot of stickles, ink and glossy accents. I also raided my stash for brads, buttons, twine and a few more odds and ends.


To create the words on the sign I used a background stamp from Glitz



Lots of folded, crunched up paper on this one!



I tore the edges in a few spots and added the dot paper behind.

Reminded me of presents being torn open on Christmas morning.



To create this hanger I covered chipboard circles in kraft cardstock and scalloped tags cut out on the Cricut. I then embellished each tag (my favourite is the micro bead wreath!) and punched the holes with a Cropodile to ensure they were evenly placed. I made the "Merry" piece in the same way and attached all the pieces with jute twine knotted behind each hole to keep them in place.



Wishing everyone a Safe and Happy holiday season!
