Holiday Style

Have you seen the new Holiday Style collection by October Afternoon?? Swoon!!! I LOVE this collection! October Afternoon sent our entire Scrap-Mart design team the Holiday Style collection to showcase in our upcoming Holiday Blog Hop and I just couldn't wait to play with it. I created this quick and easy gift tag...

First I die cut and embossed the ornament from the City Sidewalks patterned paper using the largest Spellbinders 2011 Heirloom Ornament die template. I cut and embossed the top of the ornament again from silver glitter paper then I used the Spellbinders Triple Scallop Edgeabilities template to cut the decorative edge for the topper on the ornament. Here's a pic of what it looked like after I positioned it...

I simply used a piece of Scotch tape to hold the die in place while I cut it. Next, I cut and embossed the medium sized label from Toyland patterned paper using the Spellbinders Orchard Harvest Tags and Accents die template and topped it with a sticker from the Label Stickers sheet. I couldn't resist adding some of the pom pom trim from the Wrap Pack then topped it off with the candy cane sticker from the 12x12 Shape Stickers sheet. For the hanger, I added a piece of one of the pipe cleaners from the Miscellany pack and simply twisted it closed.

I have actually finished a 12x12 layout with this collection already too...but I haven't added pics yet. I wanted to use it for this year's pictures. I will share it with you tomorrow. :)
