Crazy Tree Trimmers | Meggy Blethen

Hello Scrapbookers!! This is Meggy and I am back with a fun Christmas tree trimming layout. I had so much fun using a few of the Christmas shop releases.

I absolutely love the tree cut file and since we were decorating the tree they worked perfect to frame my photo.

Make sure to grab this cut file for all of your Christmas Tree trimming layouts!

I also used the Christmas Banners cut file to give the top of the layout a little more ballance.

And the star Christmas Tag was perfect as an extra embellishment.

I added a few pieces of ephemera in the top corner with the Christmas Banner file.

I love how the white alpha goes really well with the background and the cut files.

I love this cluster with the cut files and the cut little embellishments.

I backed each of the trees with a pretty patterned paper and added the last part of the title under this cluster of trees.

I just love how the cut files all work together even thought I used 3 different ones! I challenge you to use more than one cut file on a layout! It is a lot of fun.

I had so much fun creating this layout! Make sure to grab these cut files in the shop for yourself this holiday season! I hope you have a wonderful season!

You can watch my process video below. Thanks so much for stopping by!!

Christmas Tags | Christmas Stocking | Rachel Lowe

Hey crafty friends Rachel here again! I love making gift bags, boxes and tags, I love even more giving them and knowing others really appreciate the fact you made them! Today I have some gift tags to share with you. I have used the Christmas Stocking cut file.

The great thing about tags is that you can use up all the bits and pieces from various collections. I have used a mix of PinkFresh Studio Christmas collections 2018 and 2019.7E80C3B4-CEB9-40D5-B535-E49569367684I measured what size I wanted my tags to go with my gift bags and pillow boxes and cut accordingly in white. So it was easier to paper piece them I used the trace function and cut the outline (Silhouette Cameo), this way you also have a neat reverse side to write your message on the reverse of the tag.fullsizeoutput_48f0I chose two main colours for the stocking, a traditional Christmas red and a non traditional blue. I am not a huge fan of bling or glitter but always use it at Christmas, I have used glitter flocked paper and star white & gold glitter.

Before I paper pieced, so I could use the paper loop at the top of the stocking cut file I cut off the white base cut. To paper piece I have used the ‘Release Compound’ function (Silhouette Cameo) which ensures your tag paper choses are precise and neat fullsizeoutput_4902Here I have attached the Christmas stocking to pillow boxes which will be filled with little treats. I used gold thread to attach to the pillow box wrapping it around several times and knotting at the back.7BA4ED33-F9BB-4730-B69B-AF9A764C4587These would also look fab on a Christmas card too! It is my fav part of Christmas creating gorgeous tags and gift bag/boxes and cut files such as this allow you to personalise your gift giving. Thank you for stopping by! See you again soon.
