12 Days of {handmade} Christmas Day 1 & 2 & Free SVG

This year I am really, really, REALLY into creating my own handmade Christmas decorations , and I thought it would super fun to share with all of you my creations. I'll also be sharing a few scrappy things to, like some layouts and cards. Almost ALL of my crafts are Pinterest inspired. YES, that website is ADDICTING! I want to create EVERYTHING I seen on there!! And, I'm trying to do just that! 

First I am going to share this UBBER cute shadow box with all of you. The original one I seen said "Jingle All the Way", which I was going to do but when I went shopping for the supplies I seen these totally awesome bells in shades of blue - they match my blue and white tree! So, I decided to go with the blue and silver theme for this, and used the "Dashing Through the Snow" title, which you can find as a free SVG below. 

I really wanted to have a tutorial for all of you as well, but -- it has been crazy madness the last 3 weeks here, so I wasn't able to get to it for this one. I'm hoping for the next one's I'll be able to! 

Here are the supplies I used:
Shadow Box - Michaels' - $5.99 
Ribbon - Michael's - under a $2.00 (it was 70% off) 
Jingle Bells - Michael's - $6.00 
Paper - Doodlebug Designs 
Black Vinyl

Here is my 2nd project of my 12 Days of {handmade} Christmas. It is a scrapbooking layout, as I've also been trying to make a dent in my photos, and I had SO many Christmas photos for previous years to scrap still, that I figured there wasn't a better time to do it than now! I have such a hard time putting more than a few photos on a two page layout, but I forced myself on this one, as I take too many photos on Christmas morning!!

Thank yo for looking at my projects today. Be sure to check back tomorrow for another, and I hope I have inspired you all to make yourself a {handmade} Christmas project, or to get busy on those photos that need to be scrapped this year!

Happy Scrappin'
