Here are a few tags I made using Gina's Designs

 Good morning ,Deann here with 2 Christmas tags or they 
could be ornaments.

First up is a Christmas Mitten . I used a mitten shape from the
Mitten Micro Mini Album.
I first covered both sides with paper then inked the edges.
Next, I added a piece of Vintage lace to the cuff and over that
I added some shabby rose trim.  I thought it looked a little like fur.
I topped it off with a red seam binding bow and tied a mini candy cane
in the center  with red and white Bakers twine.
I added a blue snow flake ( I love light blue and red together) then a
Poinsettia over the snow flake.  I added 2 mini snowflakes  from
the Snowflake set . I painted them gold and added a red flat back pearl to the  centers.
To finish it off , I outlined with stickels.  

Up next is a Christmas tree.
I started with one of the banner pieces turned up side down.
I brushed Gesso over the tree and added a scalloped piece
to the back.
Then came the layering of the ornaments. I topped it off with a
white seam binding bow.
Hope you give these a try , my son will be making a few today !

Let it snow...

...Let it snow
Good morning, Deann here with my DT project
for Gina's Designs
I found a box of really cute cards at Tuesday Morning
and knew exactly what I wanted to make !

I cut apart one of the Border Sticks to make the
Snow Sign
I painted the frame white and red on the bottom layer
so the red would show through the cut outs.

To the front of the easel I added
a bow out of red seam binding, a candy cane,
rosette ,some greens and poinsettia
and a snow flake.  

I painted the easel a soft blue to match the blue
in the card.

Products used :
Border Sticks 
Victorian Frame & Easel 
Thanks  for taking a look :)

My Gina's Designs DT Project

Halloween Canvas

Good morning  ,Deann here with a Halloween Canvas.

I started with the Old Bottle Shape Set. I used Distress Inks to color them. Then rubbed white gesso onto
some of the edges of the bottles.
Then I printed out the Freebie Friday Spooky Labels from Gina's blog.
Cut them out, inked the edges and attached them to the bottles. 

Next I prepped the canvas.
I used a paper towel crunched up to tap  gesso onto the canvas. It adds a little texture .
Then I used the Brick Wall  Chipboard pcs. I used the Individual Bricks from the set.
When everything was dry ,I then painted over everything with rust, orange and brown paints.
I used the paper towel to add the paint . I dipped it into the paints  kinda mixing them together but not a lot.
When that was all dry  (I used my heat gun a little) I took my Walnut stain Distress ink pad to
the edges of the canvas and over the bricks . 

I then added the bottles to the Canvas. I used pop dots for the 2 green bottles.
Thanks for taking a look :)

Freebie Friday with Gina's Designs !

I love to have Tea with my Family and Friends!
Fall is the best time of my opinion :)
All month Gina has been giving away Fall printable s
that you can mix and match .
I 'm using them to decorate for my Fall Tea.

I made the napkin ring with a pc. of paper
towel roll, printed out an extra favor box on
copy paper and covered the roll.
I added some seam binding and leafs to it.

Menu Card

I thought it would be nice to use the smaller card
to write a note for the hostess 

The first week freebie was a leaf pattern.
That is what I used on the front of the pocket.

Favor Box

For the place card , I just added a cluster of leafs to the top.
