Happy December!!

I love the holiday season. I love the images, the sounds, the smells....everything! And of course, I love Christmas crafting. I'm really looking forward to Ali's December Daily, Tim's 12 Tags, Julie's Holidays Handmade etc etc! and I'm sure they'll be plenty of other exciting scrapbook adventures along the way too.

I got a head-start on some Christmas tags this year with my Basic Grey Jovial supplies that Suzanne sent me.

And here they are individually for some close-ups......

I made all the shipping tags myself - just out of old manilla folders. I didn't measure anything so I can't tell you exactly what size they are, but if I would have to guess (and I do have to guess because I don't have them with me at the moment!) I would say they're about 5" x 2"

I'll be doing a Guest blog post in the next week or two where I'll be giving a tutorial on how I created the backgrounds for these. I'll let you know when it's posted and link you up so you don't miss out!

All the embellishments are fussy-cut or folded from various papers from the Jovial collection. I'll show you how to do the a better version of the angel in the tutorial too :-)

The rub-ons are by Kaisercraft.

The various laces are by Green Tara and Prima.

Lots of Martha Stewart glitter everywhere!

How fabulous is this Christmas tree?!! I can say that because I followed a tutorial I learnt from Teacher Jessy's blog - go and check it out!

I'll also be posting a tutorial on how to make those stars in the very near future too :-)
And the pearl bling is exclusive to Handmade by Suzanne. See all the pretty colours here.

I cannot wait to show you all the other goodies that I've got in store for you all over December. Lots of tutorials (as you can see!) a few Guest blogging spots, a giveaway must be included too I'd say ;-)

At the moment what can you do?
1. Keep scrolling through some of my recent posts for more Christmas projects, including my advent calendar below.
2. You've only got a few days left to email me if you're interested in taking part in the Secret Santa Stash Swap. All the details are here.


  1. Lovely set of tags, Natalie. It is hard to believe they are from the same set of papers, and that it is the same Jovial pad that I have! I must take another look at mine. So pretty, and so very detailed!

  2. Wow! These tags are beautiful - I just love all of the details - TFS!
