Last projects of the year!

Hello everyone! Are you all set for Christmas? I am for sure and wanted to share my last Christmas projects with the Joyeux Noel Kit.
 This is one of the many pictures I took of my kids last Christmas. I loved the colors I used on my tag at reveal. So, I did the same colors and techniques but on a scrapbook page.
 Here is a quick card I made under 20 minutes using my scraps.
 
Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!!

It's the most wonderful time of the year!! I love everything about Christmas! Swirlydoos only themed kit makes it easy to scrap Christmas photos and make cards.
For my first project I knew I wanted to go with a softer shabby chic style.  I did some machine stitching and light distressing. The gold poinsettia is from my supplies. I've had it for years and was happy that I could finally use  it!
 
For my second project I made on over sized tag. I pulled the colors from the vintage photo and added lots of gesso for a frosted look.
This page is based on the monthly sketch. I just love this photo of my oldest and youngest daughters. I painted the doily to match the color scheme using the Silks Paint that came in the kit. After it dried I dabbed so Martha Stewart gold paint for an accent color. You can find the butterflies HERE at my Etsy Shop.
