Blog Hop: A Charming Christmas Collection and a giveaway!



Welcome!  I was so pleased to receive some die sets from the Charming Christmas  Collection by Becca Feeken and I'm thrilled to be participating in this New Collections Blog Hop!  You should have arrived here from Kittie's Blog.

First up is the Charming Cottage Box set.  My first project was a gingerbread house, using many of the sweet little elements in the set.  Besides the dies for constructing this house box, there are also 3 tags to add to it - I used the tree today, as an accessory, but there's a cute gingerbread man, too, and you'll see another basic tag as you scroll down

Charming Cottage

supplies: kraft, white, green, and Schoolhouse Red card stock, Charming Cottage Box die set, 1/4" double-sided tape, and adhesive foam to secure trees.

This set makes a darling 2 1/2" by 4 5/8" tall cottage.  I cut out the windows, thinking that at Christmas I'd put a tea light inside.  It would look good nestled into a Christmas tree, or on it's on in a little vignette.  Better yet, you could make a whole little village with this set, using different colors or prints of card stock. 

Next I used the same die to make a gift box.  I used a falling snow (dotty) patterned paper, added another of the tags from the set, and embellished the sides with 3 of the 4 Yuletide Snowflake dies, layering the smallest over the 2 middle-sized ones.

Charming Cottage and Yuletide Snowflakes

supplies: white and aqua glitter card stock, Lawn Fawn dp, Charming Cottage Box and tag die, Yuletide Snowflakes, adhesive gemstone flower, adhesive foam squares to pop snowflakes up, alphabet stickers, skinny ribbon

And finally, here are my 3D Angel Ornaments - they are lovely, so much detail at just under 3" tall!  I did my first in a cream cardstock with a gold glitter collar, and then a silver foil one with a silver glitter collar, and a rosegold glitter one with a rosegold foil collar.

Charming Christmas Angel Ornaments

supplies: cream, rose gold and gold glitter, and silver foil card stock, 3D Angel Ornament dies, gold thread for hangers

A closer look. I cut 2 of each die and glued them back-to-back before assembling them.  The little collar finishes them off perfectly, and they are easy to assemble.  These will be a lovely addition to our tree this year!

Charming Angel Ornament

This collection is well named - they certainly are charming, and have Becca's style all over them!  Thank you, team Spellbinders, for including me in the Hop today!
