Getting Ready for Christmas

I can’t believe it’s almost 1/2 way through August!  Christmas will be here before you know it, so I spent the last few weeks of my summer vacation getting ready for my school’s Holiday Bazaar.  I’ve made several post-it note holders, cards, boxes, tags, wreaths and bows to get ready! 🙂  Here are a few things I’ve made as well:

I made 2 in each of these colors: Only Orange, Melon Mambo, Yo-yo Yellow, Green Galore, and Lovely Lilac.  I tried to match the post-it note color to the out side color whenever I was able.  I used the retired Garden Greetings set. I also used Whisper White cardstock, Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry, Melon Mambo, Bluebird, and Certainly Celery ribbons.  The gel pens are from the dollar spot at Target.

I made this 4×4 card using Fun and Fast Notes.  It was a really quick card (10 min.) and the hardest part was choosing the colors to use on the Christmas Tree:

The tree is popped up with dimensionals.  I used Old Olive, Merry Moments DSP, Very Vanilla, Whisper White and Rose Red, Old Olive, Summer Sun, and Not Quite Navy Inks and a blender pen to color the tree.  I also used Whisper White Tafetta Ribbon. (Images copyright Stampin’ Up!)

I also used my new Bigz Two Tags die from SU!  I ordered it a couple of weeks ago and just now got around to using it…I will sell these at the Bazaar as well.  I used retired Wild Wasabi ribbon for the bow.

This is the second of the two tags.

I used Chocolate Chip, Real Red cardstocks and White Craft Ink with the Sweet Seasons Stamp Set and the Large Oval and Scallop Circle Punches.
