I have always enjoyed being crafty. I remember getting really excited about stickers and fun stationary when I was little. Well its good to know that some things in life never change!

I was introduced to scrapbooking in 2005 and have been hooked ever since. My love of crafting has branched out to include DIY, projects, gardening, baking, and canning. I hope to share my projects here.

Christmas Gift Bag - Cricut Circle Monthly Challenge

Hi all!

Boy I am really shocked at how many blog posts I am squeezing in right now. Its crazzzy!

Here is my project for the Cricut Circle Blog Monthly Challenge: Holiday Gift Wrapping.

I used the Countdown to Christmas Cuttlebug embossing folder. I just love it. I kind of think the bag is a little plain, but that's okay. I am sure the recipient will love it anyway.

I cut a star from George and the 25 is from Winter Woodland. I used my Gypsy to hide the inside cuts on the numbers. The Joy is also from Winter Woodland. I added a little glitter accent to the snowflakes and the piece of candy. The ribbon and rick rack are from my stash.
The holly leaves are also from Winter woodland. I sized them down under an inch so they would fit over the holly on the embossed image. I colored some clear gems with my red Sharpie to make the berries. I embossed a few of the images on some scraps and hand cut them out. I added some marker and glitter to the images.
The tag was one I cut quite a while ago for another project. I have a bunch of them sitting in a tray. I can't remember which cart it is from, there are so many with tags on them. The tag is also embossed with the same folder and I used a border punch for the white label part. The stamp is from Close to My Heart.
I added a piece of lace to the top of the bag, per my daughter's request. She was definitely right on that one!

Well... we are one day closer to Christmas, and the holiday frenzy is starting to whip up here.
I am absolutely certain I won't be getting very much sleep again until after the New Year. LOL

Thanks for visiting today.

Have a Merry Day!
