It was a great excuse to break out the glitter, get in the spirit of the season, reminisce over each month’s theme and give some great techniques another try.
While I might have wished for an unlimited craft stash, instead I embraced the process and pleasure of creating and just used what I had on-hand.
To share my experience and some new discoveries, I’ll be posting the rest of them over the next few days and perhaps they'll inspire and motivate your own holiday crafting this year.
And so, I begin with January which featured letters and numbers:
Do you remember the pre-cut grunge board parts and pieces Tim designed before his partnership with Sizzix? Well that’s what I used to make the letters spelling TWENTY. Just painted, they looked kind of blah until I outlined them and added some glitter.

My favorite technique/design element on this tag is the border.
Made with an outline of black ink, it was dotted over with white Scribbles spacing the dots just far enough apart to give it a checkered appearance.
Well, I hope you’ll return for the rest of my Christmas tag postings in the coming days and if you'd like to see a preview there's a link to them on the sidebar.
