Doily Ornaments or Gift Tags Holiday Inspirations

Welcome to Day 1 of the 12 Days of Holiday
Inspiration Blog Event brought to you by 
"The Inspiration Crew". 
We’re just a group of online crafty
blog friends who love being creative. 
This time we're doing a 12-day event to provide you with 
tons of
Holiday Inspiration.
We're making crafty projects using products we like
and some of us are even offering prizes. 
Check each blog and the information there for what prizes are
being offered and when the 
winners will be announced
on that blog.
At the bottom of this post is a list of all the crafty
ladies participating in this event. Be sure to visit all the
blogs each day for loads of fun Holiday craft ideas.

 My first day of inspiration contains ornaments I made with some aqua doilies that I purchased from Hobby Lobby. I punched scalloped circle and starburst shapes from the platinum glitter cardstock and layered it. Next, I die cut snowflakes from heavy white card stock an popped them up on top. Finally, I finished them off with a bit of bakers twine to hang.
They were simple and fun and could also be used as a tag topper for a present or a mason jar. The possibilities are endless, really.
Stay crafty for Christmas and check out these other amazing ideas!

Thanksgiving Banner

I received a Thanksgiving Card in the mail from our insurance provider. I loved the image of the pumpkins and the colors. It gave me a great starting place for a Thanksgiving Day Banner.
Here it is hung on the frame in my living room

A little closer and you can see the pumpkin image card.

I traced and cut the bottoms of each sheet of patterned paper. The cardstock doilies are from Michael's. The leaf stickers are from Mrs. Grossman's...yes, I've had them for ages. I used a few pieces from the Gathering collection

I hope you hall have a wonderful Thanksgiving filled with family and friends. I am just starting to get back into crafting after a very long hiatus. Time to paint a dresser. :)
Stay sweet!
