A Glitzy Christmas!

I was SOOOO excited to see that Glitz released a Christmas line this year!!!!  I had a whole bunch of projects in mind, but I also had some Christmas photos on my desk that I really wanted to scrap, so I started with a layout!  These are photos of Christmas at my grandmothers from when I was about 3.  I was spoiled because I was the first grandchild.

 I cut out the red star shapes with my Cricut and arranged them on the page on top of some strips of "Joyux Noel Floral" paper, and some "Banner" paper, too.  The teal banner is actually from a piece of Cashmere Dame paper...I love a teal and red combo for the holidays!  And of course the beautiful Santa Rhinestone.

I found some more teal in a Cashmere Dame Peek-a-Boo which I used for my title and journaling.  You can also see that I stitched around my photos to make them stand out a bit more!

Next up, a quick and simple little gift! Every year I make gifts for the people in my family, and one the easiest and best recieved is food gifts.  So this year, I made a few different spice rub mixtures including a home made curry powder, BBQ rub, and poultry seasoning.  

I found these little tins online, and simply wrapped them with some papers and tapes.  I stacked the tins, and tied them with some jute.

For the tag, I made my own bow from some small strips of paper and centered with a Rhinestone.  I added it to a tag and tied it to the stack, and now I have a great little stocking stuffer or pretty package to hang on the tree!

I hope you have a wonderful wonderful Holiday Season!  -Audrey
