Designing for Christmas Already!

I am already in the Christmas mood! After hours and hours of searching for my Christmas supplies I finally came up with a couple of boxes so I could start working on the make and take for our November French Art group at Paper Tales.

This little tag is made for the Tim Holtz Carved Ornaments Sizzix die. Of course I don't own it, I have borrowed it from my girlfriend Lorraine and now I must find it for myself! Isn't it a cute shape for Christmas gift tags? The darling little angel sits on a silver snowflake also cut from a Tim Holtz die (thank goodness I at least own his one) and it is layered on the Tim Holtz mini snowflake rosette. This die is new and creates two gorgeous different three dimensional snowflake rosettes. I also borrowed this from Lorraine but have already found it online and it is on its way to me now.  It's funny how my post today sounds like anTim Holtz ad, doesn't it! But I really am excited to use all of these dies throughout the Christmas season.

I have embellished the little tag with a crepe paper rosette, a scalloped circle, a punched snowflake, some seam binding and a miniature aqua blue jingle bell.

I can't believe it isn't even November yet and I am already planning all of my Christmas wrap. Now all I have to do is buy the presents!
