~Ready for a Christmas Project?~



I did this spinning ATC card Carousal for 7Gypsies...they wanted a Christmas theme..well I can do Christmas, that's for sure! You can see it here on the 7Gypsies site. Or you can just scroll below to see a TON of images of it!
I decided to go for a general Christmas theme...using lots of pictures of my decorations, events, vintage family pictures (including pictures of me when I was little) and a bunch of odds and ends. I had so much fun making this.
So here goes!!

Oh My Goodness....this was a chore to do this post....I kept messing up the HTML and adding the same pictures twice................Whew!!

I hope you enjoyed this project...I used all 7Gypsies product and added a bunch of random vintage items and different ribbons. I also used the ATC punch to make my cards.

I used a few flashcards, Self inking stamps, chipboard pieces (I glittered and crackle painted them), more chipboard pieces, metal edges, Christmas Stickers (97% Complete JOY and Christmas ), All kinds of ATC Cards and the new flocked velvet paper (Oh my dear...I thought that someone had sent me vintage wall paper, really I did! It is SO darn pretty and beautiful!) and Gaffer Tape. I used a ton of other stuff too but my head is spinning now from all this linking!

Thank you for looking and I hope that I have inspired you to start creating some Christmas projects!!

Katie, this is an over-the-top winner! I love Christmas, and especially vintage Christmas, so this project completely inspires me. Thank you for posting the pics...I loved looking at every detail. BTW, where can I find the wooden Bingo disks? I'd love to incorporate them into my own projects. Thanks again...Shannon

I love this! Can you keep adding cards? What a neat keepsake. I could see starting a tradition of adding cards each year... ooo the possibilities.

That is so pretty. WOW! Took alot of work to do and to post. I mess up when theirs alot of pictures too. I have a question. How do you keep ATC's/pictues on the carousel. Mine seem to come off when I'm turning them. I need to put the rest of mine on my carousel. I love how pretty they look with all those pictures.

Hugs,

Amy said...

This is absolutely the most beautiful paper creation I have ever seen. I am in love. Wonderful

Amy said...

Ok I'm confused. Is this a photo carousel or a ATC project. The carousel itself looks like the smaller one so I ordered the ATC cards. They are extremely small so now I don't what to do. If you would please email me. I would REALLY appreciate it. cavansmomma@yahoo.com

Hi Katie, I absolutely LOVE this project! You are so talented! I have a question about the card with the advent calendar. Did you actually make a mini calendar or is it a photo of one? My email is smndesigns@yahoo.com

Thanks so much & Happy Holidays!
