Inspired to Create

Hello Everyone Just checking in with some more crafty inspirations.  Now that the Christmas season is quickly approaching it's time to get into the spirit and get busy.  It's time to try some new dessert recipes...some new crafty techniques...and especially for us crafters Michael's and  Hobby Lobby are going all out on their Sales on crafts.  I am enjoying getting new crafty products.  I bought some Snow-Tex by DecoArt the other day and am enjoying it immensely!  This is like a textured type paint that simulates snow when it dries, it is a super cool product to try. Today I bought a Glistening Snow Writer also by DecoArt, the label says Create Dimensional Glittery Effects, can't wait to try this.  At Hobby Lobby all of their Christmas Craft Supplies are 50%  I think it was worth a try.

Today I'd like to share with you a few things that I created for my little shop in Alamo Craft Co. 
First I create this card using My Minds Eye Lost & Found I & II.  I believe the possibilities are endless with this paper.  I also created the scalloped flower using my Tim Holtz die.

Next I created these cutesy bags with scraps left over from my MME stash and I couldn't figure out what I wanted to do with them.  I knew I didn't want to fill them with candy so I figured I'd make some tags, also using scraps.  Actually this was bit of a challenge because when you're designing multiples of smallish projects the detail work can be a bit tedious, but the end results were pretty much worth it, I think.
Here's the decorated bags without matching tags.  I'll be working on these later

This is what the bag looks like filled with deco tags.  Three tags per bag.

 I used a combination of Cricut ( Christmas Cheer - trees, Bday Bash - banner) Tim Holtz die for the flowers and snowflake punch.

Hey that's it for now hope you'll give some of these projects a try.

Blessings and Until Next Time

" Create in me a clean heart, O GOD; 
and renew a right spirit within "
Psalm 51:10
