Tonights post is a little like the price is right... what is behing the tags??? (You know, like curtain #1.) Hmm... might have just shown my age with that intro. LOL!
Well, here we are for the New Product Tour for MFT's November release! I have been saving the best for last... or at least the closest to my heart for last.... the line is a little blurred there. You see... we have a family tradition in my home. Every year I make my daughters an ornament for the Christmas tree. It's a wonderful night when we present the ornaments, eat cookies and drink cocoa and take turns putting up our own ornaments. You see... what started this tradition is the fact that I didn't have any ornaments for my own tree when I got married. I wanted that to be not only different but special for my girls. On their wedding day, they will receive their box of ornaments for their new family tree... to remember the past while building their futures. So... without further ado ... the Johnson Girl's Ornaments 2012!
Each showcases Die-namics Winter Wreath die cuts and the same ornament base from the Die-namics Decorative Circle STAX... but each stocking is unique… just like the girl they are meant for!
They are simple, yes. But the truth is that they will rip them off and they will get trampled on during the festivities. Sometimes you have to know the recipients. Right? Simple doesn't mean it can't be cute though! LOL!
I had thought of doing more to the backs but I just liked it simple... so the year stands alone.
I didn't have a great pink ink to coordinate... so I kept with traditional for her tag. (She actually might keep hers... she is a bit of a pack rat! LOL!)
See how cute it is in this close up?! I love these little bells. Adorable!
I love having a coordinating To: and From: stamp in Stitched Stockings! The Dashed Dots are so versatile... are all the images in Darling Dots!
She will like the little bell on her tag. Now... a little note of warning. These took ALL DAY to create. Why? Well... each stocking, number and Circle base has a coaster under it to make it more durable and sturdy. I used hot glue and that it a little time consuming... and did you see how much die-cutting I did. I'm so glad I have a Vagabond or my arm might have fallen off. So... if you want to make some of your own, let me suggest that you watch a few good movies and enjoy making a day of it... of working in increments.
Well, that wraps up my post for tonight! I hope you've had as much fun peeking as I have had in making these projects. I am SO looking forward to seeing what you all make!
