I'm trying to organize my folders and prepare for the photographs and challenges of the new year. In the process I found some projects I created recently that were never posted so before the year slips away, here they are. A tag I created with a Maya Road chipboard house and Tim Holtz distress inks for a house-warming gift I gave Sarah last month.
Although I created some gift-specific tags (you'll see those in an upcoming JYC post), here are the bulk tags I created this year with my Silhouette. The white dots are a glitter pen, and the recipient's name was written in white. I wrap all my gifts in red and white paper so they worked for any gift.
And a group of thank you cards. The first with one of my favorite dies by Memory Box.
A thank you note created with LifeStyle Crafts wreath die.
Three thank you cards with the delightful dies "In the Meadow" by Papertrey Ink, inspired by a home decor project created by Melissa Philips.
A birthday card for a friend, using the "Friends Til the End" and "Birthday Bash Sentiments" stamps by Papertrey Ink.
And finally, I want to share a beautiful work of art by Cheri. I received this in the midst of our kitchen remodeling, and set it on a shelf in my studio. One day while they were working on the new window, everything on that wall fell off and hit the floor. Fortunately, nothing was damaged, but I piled it all up and this wonderful canvas was "lost" in the pile until recently when I got it all back where it belongs. Thanks, Cheri. It's one of my favorite quotes, and a lovely reminder of the wonderful relationships I've made through blogging.
