I was able to create a card with Comforting Florals. I love the simplicity & style of this stamp set. It was very easy to create with! I have a friend dying from cancer. She's on hospice care & may only have days left. So naturally I'm thinking of her daughter at this time. My mother died from cancer a number of years ago. I understand how hard it is! When the time comes I will send this card.

Next up is Stephanie Washburn's blog!

I had a lot of fun using Christmas2build

I always need LOTS of tags during the Christmas season! It's really great to have a little stash on hand, so I decided I'd make a few tags with this adorable set! I love to paper piece and that's what I did here. Just stamped on pretty paper (K & co. I think) that I got last year. Smaller prints work best. These stamps don't have a lot of fussy detail, so I was able to cut them out in a snap! Once again the Twinery's colors were a perfect match & the perfect accent!

Welcome to the Sizzix Fresh Vintage Blog Hop!! I am so excited to be working with The Twinery and Sizzix's very own Eileen Hull for this blog hop!

There are 60 designers participating in this hop using 12 different dies! Isn't that fun! Here is how the blog hop is set up:
•Each week, for 6 weeks, there will be new projects featured in the hop. You don’t need to worry about finding a long link list or a specific post, because that little button on the top right side bar will automatically take you to the most recent projects. (This is week 3 of the blog hop)
•Did you miss a day or miss a week? Don’t worry, just visit the “FAQ” section at the bottom of this post for more info!
Don't forget to visit Oh My Crafts for a chance to WIN this die!!

The die that I am using for this project today is the Sizzix Scoreboards Bird Die !

The Twinery Twine I used :

Now let's take a look at the projects! I decided I wanted to try the die on wool felt and make some cute handmade Christmas ornaments for my children.

Since wool felt can be a little pricey, I measured just enough to cut a bird, for 3 of them. I ran it through with a double layer and took it right to my sewing machine. I left a small opening for the fiberfill and then stitched to close . The pink bird... I added wings and vintage buttons.

The brown one got a pinback. It is a festive touch on a sweater!

The little jingle bells were from a local craft store. They are the perfect size & colors. I love the marschino looks great with these adorable birds!

There is so much you can do with the bird die! I thought it would be a fun package topper too!

Some other ideas I had: Hair clippie, Magnets, Napkin ring holder, Cupcake toppers!!

Be sure to click on the Sizzix Fresh Vintage icon (below or on my side bar) to see what the other designers have done with the Bird die! You are in for a treat!

Thanks for visiting!
