Twelve Days of Christmas - Day Five (and Four)!

I've been so inspired by the projects the Xyron, Creative Imaginations and Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft that I holed up in my studio yesterday (with Crafty Sharron) and made some cards. I hope you are making some progress on your holiday projects as well - and the fun continues for another seven days!

Today Christina Klauer creates two fabulous home decor projects using items she had around the house - look at this darling embroidery hoop!

How many of us have old picture frames stashed in a closet somewhere?

Christina gives us the perfect solution with this lovely burlap and paper wall hanging.

On Christina's blog today she walks you through the process of creating each decor piece, and also shares a cute altered notebook that would make a perfect teacher's gift!

If you missed Day Four - head on over to the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft blog for this fun banner from Mou Saha. I can just see this hanging over my mantel!

Have a great weekend everybody - and Happy Crafting!

  4. Let me try this again. I love these ideas and do indeed have some empty frames stashed around my house. I don't have any burlap but have some heavy duty linen fabric that should work as well. Thanks for a great suggestion for making some Christmas decor items!
