Christmas Crafting

Over the long weekend I was working on a bunch of stuff, so here's a few things I have to share:

This is a Row House ATC I made for a swap over at Suzanne's blog, owner of Oxford Impressions.
All my stamps are from Oxford Impressions. I used those distress stickles again, and by the time I finished ten row houses, I just about finished the bottle.

Here's a couple of Christmas notecards I made.

This is another wall hanging I made from these tin hangings I found at the resale shop. It's similar to the altered postcard I showed yesterday. Lots of yummy stuff on this one -- Tim Holtz tickets, digital image from Shabby Collage Studio, and some of my most favorite Christmas paper ever from K&Co.
Below is a close-up.


Another find at the resale shop was a bag of these children's block for about fifty cents.
I knew I'd find something to do with them.

Here's what happened to some of them.
My square inch punch worked perfectly to use up some scraps from my favorite vintage Christmas papers. Once I glued them on (good old Elmer's Glue is what I'm finding I like best these days) I finished them with an antique varnish.
