Christmas Memories

"Each Christmas
finds me longing for
Christmases now past.
And I am back in
childhood - as long as
memories last."
Carice Williams

Do you save the ends from refrigerated cinnamon roll cans? I'd always thought they'd be good for some sort of crafting, and last year used them for stamping. Right now, I'm making them into ornaments. For this one, I used one of the smaller round images, a paper doily, clear glitter, and yarn around the outside.

The sweet Victorian illustration was from one of my books. You can see the entire image here. I also used an endpaper texture. The only other images used were free elements, available on Canva.

I don't like to waste space, so filled up some of the empty spots with rectangular labels and tags, as well as pretty medallions and lace...

Thank you for stopping by!

  3. I just wanted to write a heartfelt thank you for all the beautiful free downloads you've provided here on your blog. I've gone through it all and downloaded most of it, I love it and cannot wait to get started using it, so the least thing I can do is to thank you. Your free downloads are more beautiful than so many I've purchased on e.g. Etsy. Have a lovely day. :)
