Some Christmas Pretties by Vicky Alberto

I am typically a layout artist but this holiday season had me creating a lot of vintage style cards and tags with the help of beautiful Pion Design papers/image sheets and gorgeous Green Tara flowers, embellishments and lace.

This a was a fun project that I stumbled across. I was searching for a kid's craft project ( when I found this cute little sleigh template that I just had to try out for myself. I slightly modified their template (enlarged the template and put a deeper curve) & used some Green Tara metallic swirl embellies. Hey presto. Finished.

Matching Card & Tag Set by Vicky Alberto

The masculine Pion Design "For Father" papers were perfect to make this card and tag for my Father-in-Law. The beautiful white lace, blue cherry blossoms and white sprays are Green Tara products.

Dear Santa Tag by Vicky Alberto

I made this oversized 6-inch tag to put on a large parcel, using a mix of Pion Design papers. All the embellishments, except for the crochet flower, are Green Tara products - white roses, white spray, blue cherry blossom and white lace. The "Dear Santa" was stamped - oh I have so many word stamps I never use so I decided to dust this one off, LOL. I may need to make another one of these tags and use it as a cute door hanger.

Merry Christmas Tags by Vicky Alberto

A few little tags I made with some Pion scraps from the "Waiting for Santa 2" collection. The red roses, white buds, silver stars and red bead string are all from Green Tara. I thought these would be really cute for my boys.

I had a lot of fun creating with these vintage papers and the Green Tara flowers, embellishments and lace were perfect compliments to these holiday projects.
Thanks for stopping by today to take a peek, Merry Christmas!

Layout by JJ Sobey

Just wanted to share this layout with you. Details below :-

"The silver rose leaves were misted with green glimmermist and the red and purple gardenias received a generous helping of glimmer glam.

These sprays with the dark iridescent beads were really cool - so easy to get them to sit where you want because they are wired.

I cut apart a second spray to place around the flower clusters. No problem doing this, as the beads are individually wired, so they won't come off if you cut part of the stem.

beaded sprays - 22cm Silver Stem, 7 Leaves, Peacock
flowers - Gardenia Red 6cm, Gardenia Purple 6cm
leaves - Rose Leaf 7cm Silver

A Laugh Is Simply a Smile Said Out Loud
By Tina Dalton

Just wanted to share this layout with you by Tina Dalton. I just adore the title. Tina has simply used Green Tara white paper flowers & pearl centres. She then coloured them with some Glimmermist. She has also used some Green Tara Pearls by the metre. Looks great Tina.

Silver Swirl Gift Card Holder by JJ Sobey

Hello everyone. Today I would like to share three projects with you. For my first project, I used a silver swirl as a gift card holder. I used the silver metallic swirls for this.

There's a shot without the gift card. I misted the entire tag with Sea Glass glimmer mist, then used screens from the Tattered Angels Vintage Seasons Winter Trees set, and misted with Mallard and Midnight Blue glimmer mists. I then added some stamped images (Chillin’ and Tattered Textures sets). The Mistables crepe ribbon is from the Rockin’ Renaissance set and was misted with Mallard and Midnight Blue mists. The entire tag received a coat of Chandelier Glam.
The Green Tara tassel trim started out cream, but was misted with glimmer mist (Mallard).
These swirls were perfect for holding a gift card in place!
This blue/silver beaded stem adds some sparkle and texture:
The blue (Gardenia) and teal (apple blossom) flowers started out white and were customized with glimmer mist. The ivory flower is it's original colour.

Gift Card Holder Supplies

Metal Swirls, Silver (MS858S3)
20m Mini Tassel Ribbon 15mm Cream (RB456c)
27cm Blue/Silver Bead Stem (XB31356BS)
Gardenia, White (FDV054Wh5)
White Apple Blossom (FDV044Wh5)
Ivory Apple Blossom (FDV044Iv5)

Christmas Ball by JJ Sobey

Christmas Ball Supplies

Red Metallic Swirls (MS858R3)
3mm Bead Garland, Gold (RBY06Go)

All this sparkle made me think of decorations for the tree, so my next project was a Christmas ball. I started with a clear glass ornament, coated it with clear gesso, and a couple of coats of Glimmer Glam (Jolly Old Elf). Once it was all dry, I added red metallic swirls, using Fabri-Tac as an adhesive. You definitely want a strong liquid adhesive for this project, as the swirls want to snap back to their original shape rather than curve around the ball.
To finish off the ornament, I wrapped gold bead trim around the base, and tied an extra loop of it for hanging. I adhered the bead trim with Glue Dot - Glue Lines, as they are quite strong, and a little less fussy than a liquid adhesive.

Here I wanted lots and lots of layers, paper, trim, tickets, flowers, loads of layers!!

Christmas Cards by Di Garling

Hello everyone. Today I thought I would show you some Christmas Cards I made this month. I have used a lovely white & silver Alison Ellis foil paper & I have teamed them up with several yummy ribbons, trims & various other little bits, all from Green Tara of course. All of these cards were rather simple little cards but by using WOW factor papers & ribbons etc it just creates a bit of WOW factor with very little effort. Even if your skill level is not high, you can still achieve a good result by using beautiful well cordinated products. Until next time. Cheers Di xx
