Christmas Wooden Block - Beach Theme

I made this Christmas decor piece for a friend of mine that loves Tim Holtz products and techniques. I decided on a beach themed Christmas piece because she owns a home on the beach. The Sea-Maiden paper collection from Authentique was the starting point for my idea. It's the perfect paper for this project because it matches the decor in her beautiful home. I also love that the papers are vintage inspired beach designs. The collection is absolutely gorgeous! I had so much fun making this Christmas piece because it's non-traditional looking in color and theme.

Give Thanks Burlap Panel

Fall is my favorite season. I enjoy the cooler temperatures, but I especially love the various shades of yellow, orange, red, purple and brown as the leaves change color during the fall season. I live in Wisconsin, so my family gets to enjoy the 4 different seasons in their full glory!

 

This piece is a celebration of fall and Thanksgiving. The majority of this fall burlap decor piece was made with Authentique papers, Tim Holtz dies and cardstock. I was very happy with how it turned out. I purchased an easel so it could be displayed in my living room.

Halloween Tray

I finally made a Halloween tray. I've seen many different versions on Pinterest and I wanted to make one myself. Hobby Lobby had the trays on clearance a few years ago and I stocked up on black and white trays. I found a bunch of Jolee's Boutique Halloween embellishments at Tuesday Morning that were the perfect size to fit inside the little cubbies. Of course, I also had some Halloween embellishments in my stash along with the Teresa Collins papers and chipboard pieces! The little skeleton couple is my favorite part of the tray. I just love them! 

 

You can use up your leftover Halloween embellishments from other projects to decorate one of these trays. Scraps of leftover Halloween paper could easily be used  because very little paper is needed for this project. This piece took me about 2 hours to create and I enjoyed making it. I will definitely make a Christmas and winter version using the white trays.
