A Little Vintage Christmas…

Good afternoon, my friends!

What a rainy, gloomy day here on the central California coast!  (I love it!)  How’s the weather where you are?

This kind of day makes it feel like Christmas is just around the bend, and I’ve been trying to get a bit of a jump on it with a couple of projects…

First:

A fun chipboard wall hanging…the chipboard piece from Crafty Secrets, as well as all the beautifully vintage Christmas images…

…from both the new “Christmas” Creative Scraps and the “Christmas” Images & Journal Notes booklet…love that collage piece in the background!  A lovely peppermint stripe print from Graphic 45’s Christmas Past collection…

…this little sweetie was cut out and popped up, of course!

Some lovely red vintage buttons, a single jingle bell, holly flowers, ribbon, lace, a bit of sparkle thanks to Dazzling Diamonds, platinum Stickles & some “Iridescent Gold” Glimmer Mist, and that’s about it!

Next, a completely different color scheme…

Cool grey, silver, pink & white…and a lovely Victorian angel from Crafty Secrets’ “Christmas” Images & Journal Notes booklet…

I decided to carry on the arched look from the image and used a corner rounder punch for the different layers of the card…

…sparkling falling snow, thanks to a little Dazzling Diamonds…

…and some different sized sparkly snowflakes, all glitzed up with lots and lots of clear, chunky German glass glitter.  A vintage pink button and some lovely Swarovski crystals finish them off…

I hope you all have the loveliest of weekends!

See you soon with something new…
