It's the most wonderful time of the year...

Hi, it's Susan, and Christmas is by far my favorite holiday. I wish I were more organized like Nikki! That girl had her Christmas tree up before Thanksgiving. My lights are still in a bag beside my tree just waiting to be put up. Well, maybe today. I have to say I've been busy making little Christmas crafts instead - much more fun than climbing up and down that ladder!

Today you not only get to see some projects by me, but also Julie Tucker-Wolek. She doesn't blog until after Christmas. It would be a shame for you not to see the cute things she has created.

First up is this ornament I made using the top of a Prima flower container. It was so easy to make! I just used the lid to trace around - of course, using one of the cute pieces of paper from "North Pole Nights". I then added a little glitter to the little elf. Next I glued him on to the inside of the lid. After that, I added a little more glitter around the center and added the ribbon.

For this ornament, I bought a pre-made shaped ornament at Hobby Lobby. I then covered it papers from "North Pole Nights". Again I added glitter and ribbon to embellish it.

Aren't these Christmas items that Julie made, adorable? I love the candle holders, the added embellishments to the penguins and those wonderful place cards.

Here is a close up of the place cards. You can see that Julie used Nikki's stamps from "North Pole Nights" on them.

Here I made a gift card holder and a card. For the gift card holder I used a cut out sheet from "North Pole Nights".

I hope you have been inspired by our projects. We can't wait to see what wonderful ideas you come up with using Nikki's fabulous papers! Here's hoping you have a wonderful holiday season!
