12 Blogs of Christmas... Blog Cuise

Welcome, Welcome to everyone that is on the 12 Blogs of Christmas tour. I hope that you are enjoying your tour of the very talented people that have posted Christmassy projects for you to try! I am going to enjoy a cup of tea this afternoon whilst having a good look around... For everyone that is a visitor to my Blog on this tour please leave a comment - it would be great to hear what you are thinking about the Cruise... There are a lot of very talented SU! demonstrators posting today... First a great big thank you to Carolyn to organise this and still manage to get things done whilst poorly and out of action for the last couple of weeks and get us all organised too no mean feat I can tell you!... Thanks to Jo who always answers my silly qustions and always knows the answer - and she is very fast (You will have seen her blog on your trip this morning!) I love her stuff! I have needed her a couple of times this week to ask various questions about the blog cruise and posting! As you know I am not technical at all! So my first project is a gift bag - this is one of the SU! gift bags that unfortunately are no longer available, but you can create something similar using a bagalope or a plain bag! I have wheeled the bag using a SU wheel in old olive to give it a christmassy theme - I have then used 3 elements from the Christmas Jingle scrapkit in real red and old olive and mounted these on very vanilla, old olive and real red card stock. I have then added a length of old olive ribbon and tied this in a bow - that I cannot get to look right no matter how many times I tie it (I know it doesn't look the best - but there is so many times you can tie a piece of ribbon!)
The second project is a series of tags that I have decorated using the Winter Post stamp set and inks - Real red, old olive, chocolate chip and close to cocoa. I have randomly stamped images on them and inked the edges with a dauber - no more no less! Although my fingers are now covered in ink! They should have linen thread around the hole punched out at the top - but in short I cannot remember where I have put it!
So where do you go next on your journey - unfortunately this is the last post so it is back to Carolyn where your journey began - I hope you enjoyed yourselves!... However there is another hop in progress starting with Kara Why not check those out!

Thanks for stopping by and please leave some comments - so I can visit your blogs! I hope you have enjoyed yourself! It has been fun to create for this and thanks for looking Debbi x x x
