Some New Fun Christmas Decorations I've Been Working On

I got this idea from the new idea book by Carolee's Creations. I used big cardboard letters instead of the wooden ones in the book - but I love how it turned out. I used mostly Carolee's Creations paper, but I supplemented with some other that I had on hand. Some rub ons, ribbon and a little ornament and it was done.

Then I saw this tree that Carolyn was working on and I knew I had to make one for my table this year. My tablescape is very whimsical - all bright green and red - and I knew it would be perfect. It is also made by Carolee's Creations. I think I started out making it JUST like the one in the book...but once I painted it green....I just made it with what I had on hand. What I love about this project is that mine doesn't look like Carolyn's and the next person's wouldn't look like mine.

Finally, I wanted to show you these ornaments. I saw them on a blog today and wanted to try them. I SO wish I had a collection of double sided papers - but they still turned out ok with what I had in my stash. BUT I AM going to get a few double sided papers all from one collection and make some more and hang them at the Inn in the croproom. Yea! Another trip to the Crafty Scrapper for paper.
