Gecko Galz Christmas is Comin'!

Ho Ho Ho!
Are you getting into the Christmas spirit yet?
Counting down....
The theme for November is Deck The Halls
and it's a great way to get into the Christmas spirit.
You still have time to get in on this month's customer challenge.
All the deets are Gecko Galz
And there you will not only find incredible
inspiration from our talented Design Team,
you will find free stamps each and every day!
Here are my pieces for the month:

All of the items I used to create
these little treasures can be found at the
Gecko Galz Etsy Shop


I made this one at the last minute,
just for you
so you can see how easy it is
to make gorgeousness with
Gecko Galz products:

Use the "Dashing Through The Snow" paper
from the Peppermint Lane mini paper pak.
Extract that ADORABLE little reindeer from 
the Reindeer Games collage sheet.
(I used the magnetic lasso to do this)
Place the reindeer
(I've named him Wayne) over the paper
and apply a drop shadow to him.
Add the Wordart behind the reindeer.
(I think this was an old Gecko Galz freebie,
but I'm not positive about that, sorry)
Put the candy cane frame behind the wordart.
(I used one by Just So Scrappy)
Then place the stitching around the edges.
(That is an overlay by Akizo Designs)
Save it as a jpeg.
And you have a digital Christmas card!
I used Photoshop Elements to do all this.
here is the cool part:
You can do almost all of this 
with paper and scissors!
Just print the papers and elements out, cut them out with your scissors, 
and glue it all together!
You can stitch around the edge with your
actual sewing machine.
(or a needle and thread,
if you don;t have an actual sewing machine)
Easy Peasey!

Get the paper and reindeer at the
Gecko Galz Etsy Shop

And before I forget, here is your free stamp for the month:
And here is something I made with it:

Like I said:
Ho Ho Ho!
Are you getting into the Christmas spirit yet?
Counting down....

See you soon.

Thanks for coming by!

Autumn and Metal

Yes, my friends,
that is the current theme over at
Autumn is my favoirte season and
it's all too short here
in my neck of the woods.
(Where did that saying come from, anyways?)
Here is my project:
Once again, I cannot tell you
from where all these elements came, cus
once again, I had my stash box out.
I have a moratorium on buying any paper
scrappbooking stuff,
cus it seems all I am every doing
is digital.
So I am on an element-diet.
And that means,
I have to use up my old stuff.
Do you have waytoomuch old stuff
like me?
(I know, silly question)
The metal is the leaves that I cut out with
some Sizzix dies. I covered them with
plumber's tape, coloured them with 
Rangers alcohol inks and embossed them with a
Darice embossing folder.
Anyways, thanks for coming by
and have a funny day!
