Pretty Packages Under The Tree...

 Hi everyone Bobbi here!  Thank you so, so much for all the wonderful comments on my Merry & Bright Cabinet Card, I really do appreciate all your visits and lovely comments!  I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving, if you celebrate that holiday.  I know I ate far too much but, it was a wonderful day filled with family, good food and times to treasure.  I am truly thankful for so many things!  Today I'm sharing a project that I recently did with Christmas in mind.  I don't know about you but, I always like to have pretty packages under the tree!  I like the gifts I'm giving to look extra special!  Inspiration Emporium has a new challenge for December "Sing, Sing It Loud" challenge!  Anything that has to do with music, sheet music, music notes, singing, will be perfect to enter!  My largest present has some fun musical note Christmas tissue tape and I can just imagine they're singing loud and clear in that sleigh full of children with Santa!
 I will have a full list of all the products that I used at the end of this post.
 For all of my presents I used a selection of Tim Holtz dies, ephemera packs, ideology metal pieces and trimmings.
 It's really hard to see but the diecut word "believe" is done in red glitter, very sparkly :)
 That fun ATC sized North Pole map, is from Tim Holtz Merriment Paper Stash Collection.
 The snowflakes are a really fun Colored Crackle technique out of Tim Holtz's Compendium of Curiosities III book, so much fun!
I used some Found Relatives, Occasions cards and did a little distressing.
The Prancing Deer, I just love how he turned out.  I cut it out of super thin Balsa wood.  I'm not gonna lie, it is fragile.  I did have to do some minor surgery with some glue to the antlers but he was well worth it!
Now remember to enter your "Sing, Sing it Loud" themed projects over at Inspiration Journal and one lucky winner will be given a very generous $50 gift credit, to spend at Inspiration Emporium.  You can find all the supplies I used at Inspiration Emporium via the links below. Remember to use my coupon code - vintagemuse - to save 10% on your order.  I hope you enjoyed my Pretty Packaged Presents!   If you have any questions or if there's anything I missed please let me know I love your comments, I appreciate each and everyone of them!  As always thanks for stopping by and I'll see you next time!
