Last LOTV sneak peeks ...

These are the last few Christmas projects that I made last week when Anne and Dawny came to stay for the weekend. We had such a lovely time and have all said that we should do it again soon :)

For this card I used the Santa from LOTV Artpad #32
Silver glitter mesh, snowflake charm and jingly jingle bell from The Ribbon Girl
Martha Stewart border punch and lots of silver cardstock
I also created my own glitter paper by covering the paper with a glue pad and sprinkling Glamour Dust glitter all over it - in real life it is stunning! Anyone going to the LOTV shop can pick up the Glamour Dust from them as they have it in the shop but it isn't on the website

My second project is a gift box using one of the images from Artpad #33 Christmas Cuties - I just love these snowmen!

I used:
LOTV paper pads - Up,Up & Away and Pastel Dreams
White pompom trim, stickles and pink adhesive flat back gems from The Ribbon Girl
Papertrey holly leaves die and silver glitter card

My final project was made using the scraps of paper from all the other projects that were piled up on the crafting table and the new wooden shapes from the Ribbon Girl

I used:
Papers from LOTV paper pads - Up,Up & Away and Pastel Dreams
Wooden stars, Pale aqua medium pom pom trim, 5mm gingham ribbon, silver twine and shiny heart charms all from The Ribbon Girl
