Oh, the Things You Can Find!

I was looking through a little file I had the other day and came across some Christmas dies that I had cut out from some sheet a loooong time ago.  Probably had planned to use them but ended up not....they got filed away never to be seen again....until Christmas 2012!  I saw them and thought...well, these are still pretty darned cute and I think I'll use them on a layout.

I have no idea where they came from so can't help you there but they are at least 5 or more years old so probably not available.  Probably not the most trendy scrapbooking stuff on the market now but I liked them then and I still like the folksy little look now.

Here is the two page spread:
And of course I added some Glossy Accents because we cannot leave things the way they are, can we?
And here is a border done with a Martha Stewart punch that I also used a Hero Arts stamp on with some Versamark and embossing powder to give a little more dimension and glittery look.

Trust me...the glittery look is there.
And here's the right side of the layout:
The little cut out pieces were popped up on some dimensionals.  The journaling block was made with a Martha Stewart punch set, too.
And I just thought Mr. Santa was so darned cute.
 And to give you some idea of what they look like side by side:

That's it for today, my friends!

Happy Crafting!
