The papers are Prima 'En Francais', some muslin for texture and finished off with a mini tag, WOJ Vintage Linen Button Twine and WOJ 'Pirates Treasure' charm.

This cutie is 'Kitty' and is so sweet playing in the snow.

I have used Teresa Collin's 'Santa's List' papers, the sentiment is WOJ and comes with the image, the Christmas tree is WOJ Die-Light 'Christmas Tree' and comes in a set of three, the charm is WOJ 'Silent Night' and I finished it off with some Wild Orchid flowers and some red pearls and a touch of Stickles.

WOJ Preview Day 2

Today I have WOJ's gorgeous new 'Angel with Harp', this is a new release this month.

I wanted to create a soft vintage Christmas card with this gorgeous image so I went through my papers and found some My Minds Eye 'All is Bright', inked the edges with Distress Ink 'Vintage Photo' and machine stitched all the edges. Adhered a doily and then finished it off with some Prima and Wild Orchid flowers and a button with some WOJ 'Vintage Linen' Button Twine.

The sentiment is WOJ and comes with the 'Angel with Harp' image plus it comes with a second sentiment too!

Thank you for stopping by and for your lovely comments, don't forget WOJ's blog hop on the 29th!

WOJ October Project

This month's theme is 'Fall Decorations' so I doubled up on this one and decorated a box with a tag for a thank you gift!

For the tag I simply stamped 'Birdie Love' onto kraft cardstock and used white embossing powder, then did the same with the sentiment, the sentiment is WOJ's 'General Sayings II'. I cut around the image and left a border all the way around and created a hole at the top to add some WOJ 'Button Twine' to my tag.

I bought the box from a local store and was already the perfect colour for the Fall theme.

I added some burlap to add to the rustic theme and used Crate papers to decorate the box, perfect Fall colours. The leaf is WOJ's Die-Light 'Leaves Trio' and the rose is WOJ's Die-Light 'Rolled Scalloped Flower'.

I didn't adhere the tag, so the box can be used without my thank you note attached!

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to pop over to WOJ's Blog to see the rest of the DT's October creations!
