Paper Smooches SPARKS Dec 14-20 Challenge & Other Stuff...

Paper Smooches Challenge this week is Picture Perfect.  I love the colors in this photo.

This is the card I made:
I watercolored the background and then used watercolor pencils on the hearts, and mounted it all on patterned paper adhered it to the card stock.  The spool was wrapped with some bakers twine and I used matte medium on the curled twine to stiffen and glue it down. Paper Smooches Needle A Little Love stamp set was used for all the images.

I have been busy crafting, making Christmas cards, decorating, and baking so haven't done a lot on my blog. ;)   Here are some pics of some of the projects I did.

This is my granddaughers Christmas stocking. She will be 14 months old on Christmas day.    I worked on this off and on for 2 months and completed it a couple of days ago.  She is our Princess so I knew I had to make a Princess stocking for her.  I made all the stockings for each family member and she is the latest! 
This is one of two trees I made.  The base is a paper mache tree, I found mine on Amazon.  You just punch out a whole bunch of circles from patterned paper and glue them to the tree starting on the bottom.   The box will be used to hold the cards I give away as gifts for the holiday.  I just followed a video on You Tube on how to make a A2 card box.  This was pretty easy, it is all one piece, and doesn't have a seperate lid, so you only cut and fold one piece of paper, much easier.  I made them in several colors. 

Thanks for stopping by and I hope all your holiday preparations are going well..
