Welcome to the My Creative Time "12 Days of Christmas"!

If you arrived here from Jeanne, then you are headed in the right direction. If not, please start at Emma's blog here.
For today's project, I decorated a gift bag in some non-traditional colors and tried a new technique with Emma's stamps!
I began by making a rosette using the Cricut Ribbons & Rosettes cartridge. I cut two of the 2 x 11 borders at 2" and scored them between each scallop. After adhering them together to create the rosette, I glued it to my bag with hot glue. Next I cut a 4" scalloped circle from Mini Mongrams and added some white stitching around the edges. I cut a 4" circle from the same cartridge and ran in through the Cuttlebug Polka Dots embossing folder before adhering it to the scalloped circle. The stocking is cut at 2 3/4" from Jolly Holiday and is attached with pop dots. To make it nice and secure, I attached the scalloped circle to the rosette with hot glue.
Now for my fun experiment! I used Emma's Scallop & Stitched Circle Dies to cut out the scallop shape in pink and the circle in vellum. I then stamped the adorable snowman from Emma's All Around Christmas stamp set, using The Essential Glue Pad, which I found at Michael's. I covered the whole thing with some lime green glitter and shook off the excess. I then attached the circle and scallop together by adding an eyelet and some twine.
I experimented with a couple more of these tags. This one has another sentiment from All Around Christmas.
To make this one, I used Emma's XL Label Die, cutting the shape once out of green cardstock and once out of vellum. Before adhering them together, I went through the same process with a third sentiment from All Around Christmas.
