It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas

Happy Monday Y'all! Aymee Gandy of 'A Scraphappy Southernbelle' here with you on this beautiful day to share a couple of Christmas projects with you guys. But first, how was your Thanksgiving? Did you all have fun with your family and friends? I sure hope so! Brandon and I were unable to make it home to Alabama to see our families for the holiday, so we had a little celebration here. I even cooked a mini Thanksgiving dinner. It was nothing like my Mom's cooking, but it was festive. We had a good time! We spent the day just enjoying each others company and even took our Yorkie, Katie Scarlett, to the park for a long walk. I know we are all about scrappin' here, but I had to show off a pic of my baby on her very first Thanksgiving! Tee hee!
Now, on to the scrappyness! First up, I have a bit of home decor' that I created using 4 frames I found at a local dollar store! I tell ya, you can find the best frames at the dollar store to alter up and make unique artwork for your home. Be sure to take a look the next time you go in to one to see what you could create!

"Noel" Wall Hanging

Supplies Used
Cardstock, Ribbon: The Paper Studio
Patterned Paper: GCD Studios
Alphabet Stickers: American Crafts
Electronic Cutter: Cricut Expression (Provo Craft)
Cartridge: Plantin' Schoolbook
Embossing Machine: Cuttlebug (Provo Craft)
Embossing Folder: Snow
Adhesive: Helmar
 I used my Cricut to cut ovals and then embossed them with my Cuttlebu. I then put my alphabet stickers on top of that.

 'O'

 "Happy Christmas" Shaker Card

Supplies Used:
Cardstock: The Paper Studio, Core'dinations
Patterned Paper: Die Cuts With A View, My Mind's Eye, The Paper Studio
Pearls: Queen & Co.
Ribbon: The Paper Studio
Corner Punch: EK Success
Electronic Cutter: Cricut Expression (Provo Craft)
Cartridges: Christmas, Joys of the Season, Gypsy Wanderings
Software: Cricut Gypsy (Provo Craft)
Adhesive: Helmar

For this card, I used my Gypsy to design it and then my Cricut to cut it out. I put some clear acetate (recycled from a leftover sticker sheet) on the back of the window to create the 'glass.' I then used pop dots to pop this up and add some blue embellishments to create my shaking mechanism. I was going for the look of snow when you shake the card.
 Here is a view from the side so you can see the window popped up to allow the shaker part to work.
 I added a simple sentiment to the inside.
I hope you have enjoyed these projects! Thank you so much for stopping by the Sassy blog! We hope to see you again soon!

Happy Scrappin'!!!
