JOY: Die Cut Challenge

Welcome to this week's die cut challenge with Stuck on U Sketches! This is Vivian and I would like to share with you my latest home decor with you.

It is the 'JOY' file from Scrapping Bug Designs.

I found the perfect frame for it at Michael's and voila! It's really that simple.

Remember: The challenge is "Anything Christmas". Simple, right?

Please visit my blog for extra details on supplies and bonus photos.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Since this project is in a frame behind glass, I had to make sure
to keep the letters and mice "flat".

Dress Up Your Gift Bag - Die Cut Challenge, Anything Christmas

Hi, This is Helen from Living My Given Life, to share a project with you that I created as my design team project for the Die Cut Challenge - Anything Christmas.

I have been making some handmade gifts, gift boxes and bags. Today I would like to share with you how I decorate a plain kraft gift bag.

Untitled

There are many ways you can decorate or dress up a plain paper gift bag. For my bag, I added a big paper doily (8"). You can find any sizes of paper doily at baking section at craft store or even Walmart. I glued the paper doily using Liquid Glass, this is an all-purpose liquid glue that dries fast and strong.

On top of the doily, I added a big paper rosette that I cut using my Silhouette machine. I cut 2 piece of 3" wide rosette cutting file from Lori Whitlock and glued them together to make a big rosette.


For the tag, I cut the tag shape from Lori Whitlock tag mini album with frame, added a ribbon bow, felt christmas tree. The sentiment I used one of the Paper Smooches holiday stamp set, stamped it on a piece watercolor paper after I sprayed little water to give a watercolor effect using dye ink. And finished it with a mini clothe pin.

I added the finished tag on the paper rosette using Liquid Glass.

You still have time to come and play along with us this week! Link up your projects here to share with us! I am looking forward to see them! Have a Merry Christmas!

Christmas Mug Gift Card Holder...

Katy here with An Inside to my Heart...

How are you guys and gals liking a SOUS post every...single...day?!?! TONS of inspiration to get you going!

I'm part of the Die-Cut Team and the theme this challenge is Anything Christmas.

Some people think giving gift cards for Christmas is impersonal but when you're surrounded by friends and family who either have everything they want and need or are too picky to buy for...gift cards are the way to go!

At least I try to package them in something other than the envelope they came in....lol

Here's my attempt at a coffee mug holding a Starbucks Coffee gift card...

 ------------------------------------------
I stamped the bottom of the mug with a border stamp then added red sequins along the edge. I put Liquid Glass all over the coffee in the mug for a real feel and look. Rounded it off with a bow on the handle and an initial for the person receiving it.

Thanks for stopping by!

Don't forget to play along by linking up your own Christmas project using any die-cut or svg file. You have 'till this Friday to play along!
