A Very Merry Christmas: Elisabeth Bell's Challenge Blog

A very Merry Christmas to you and yours. Hoping you are spending time with your friends and family. Also, hoping you got everything you wished for. I love gifts. My favorites are ones that are handmade. I found a tutorial for this fabric calendar on the Prima Live site. It called to me. I have really delved into fabric this year. I love using my sewing machine. It brings me joy:) So, I combined my two loves paper and fabric together to make a multi medium project. I used design paper from Crate. I also used lots of felt, ribbon, buttons and rhinestones. These are from PTI. First, I took my canvas and cut it to size. Then I added accent stitching with my sewing machine and cut the canvas pieces. I added lots of fancy cutting and die cuts from my Crate paper collection. My tag was created with two Sizzix dies, buttons, and rhinestones. I chose the supremely adorable image from Whiff of Joy called "Warm Wishes". I really love this image! I colored her with Copic markers and popped her up with dimentionals.

The challenge this month at the Elisabeth Bell Challenge is to make a gift and a card. I combined my fabric calendar with a gift card tag for the recipient.

Pixie Dust Studio Challenge

The Pixie Dust Studio Challenge this week is to make a card using red and green and the sketch. I love a good sketch challenge:) I chose this Missy Claus image. I colored my image with Copic Markers. I used DP from K&Co. and PTI cardstock. I added ribbon and lots of dimentionals. I participated in the Beli challenge or using either paper or embellisments for a "Christmas" theme. I also participated in the Digital Tuesday challenge of creating a card with the theme of "Let's celebrate". My card celebrates Christmas:) Make sure to check out all of the other DT members for inspiration. I cannot wait to see what you make for the challenge! You would be amazed what a little magic and pixie dust will do!
