Lonely This Christmas

This week's theme is Lonely This Christmas (aka Tagging Along).

We've teamed up with Rosemary and Jana and the rest of the talented team at The Order of the Opus Gluei for a special "crossover event"!

This week's prompt is to make any kind of holiday card for Jingle Belles (yes, we're letting you off easy this week) ... and then so you're card won't be Lonely This Christmas ... make a second project inspired by your card that you will to link-up at The Order of the Opus Gluei.

You second project can be a tag (get it ... tagging along), a gift box, a gift card holder, a gift bag ... you name it ... some inspired project you'll be so very glad you already have completed when the holidays roll around.

Here's what we came-up with this week:

Stephanie's Card
When I was hunting through my stash for something this week,
I discovered a pad of Tim Holtz Papers I'd completely
forgotten about (almost like Christmas in June). I used the vintage
papers and this week's Sketchbook Saturday Layout together
with a sentiment from CatsLife Press and some vintage
buttons for my card.

Since I was having so much fun with my vintage paper discovery,
I used more of them to create this holiday tag and a cute
little 2-5-7-10 bag that will be perfect for a piece
of jewelry or other small gift.

Lauren says, "my favorite holiday color combination is green and pink, and imo the best collection ever to use those colors was the (alas, short-lived) "noel" collection that elise flannigan designed for ki memories, which i admit to having seriously hoarded. i was so inspired by these beloved products, that in addition to my tag and card, i used last week's sketchy thursdays sketch to customize a plain wooden document box from michael's to serve as storage for my increasingly large and beloved stash of JINGLE BELLES cards! this replaces my previous card storage solution... a big (but not very festive) tupperware container!!! :)"

Link up your tag and card here and at Opus Gluei by 6pm (EST) next Wednesday, June 29th for a shot at *both* randomly-awarded prizes!!! Keyword for galleries and flickr is JB26.

Our prize package for one lucky participant includes a set of Holly Jolly Acrylic Stamps by My Mind's Eye; a Vintage Postcard Kit from Crafty Secrets; and Susan Winget Grand Adhesions Dimensional Stickers by K&Company.
