Christmas Tags 1

Hello scrappy friends! Today I am sharing a few of the Christmas tags I have made for our family.

On the little tags I used a variety of techniques: Painting, embossing, and stamping. 

Most of the products are from my stash and some were given to me by my friends, Ann and Shawn. Merry Christmas, you two! 

Merry Christmas to you all!

Our Christmas Family Recipies

Happy December, everyone! It's difficult to believe that there are only 16 days until Christmas! This layout is for the CSI Design Team and it is about our family's Christmas Recipes. 

As is usual for me, I used a lot of multimedia techniques. I stamped, painted, and embossed. In addition to MM, I tore the paper and popped up sections for a 3-D look. 

Here is how I solved Case File 220:

Scheme: All five colors
Evidence: Stars, Flowers, Snowflakes
Testimony: I journaled about holiday food

The title is, Our Christmas Family Recipes.  My journaling reads, "This recipe book is filled with the Wright and Rogers cherished recipes that have been used at Christmas for decades. My hope is that future generations will know how important and loved these recipes are and will continue these traditions at Christmas and always. Here is a quick look at one of the recipes in the cookbook: 

Blue Fern Studios
     Vintage Christmas Collection 1 & 2 Papers:
          Deck The Halls
          Auld Lang Syne

     Seaside Cottage, Relics paper
          Cozy Christmas
          Winter Village
          Winter Page Dangles
          Word Ornaments

     Imagine Ink Embossing Powder:
          Silver Bells
          Vintage Christmas Collection, Soft Blooms
          Prima flowers 
     May Arts, ribbons
     Twinklets, Diamond Dust
     From my Stash: 
          cheese cloth and micro mini clear beads 

How I enjoyed doing this layout about a little book I created to hold our family Christmas recipes! 

Some of the recipes include my paternal grandmother's recipes for turkey and dressing, a recipe for cranberry relish from my brother in law's mother, sweet potatoes from my mother, 24 hour salad from my husband's aunt, and my mother in law's tea cake recipe. Inside the book is space where future generations may add more loved recipes.  

Thanks for taking a peek and reading about my project within a layout. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all. See you next time!
