Jolly Old Saint Nicholas, Lean Your Ear This Way ~ with Cyndy G

Can you believe it is time to start thinking about Christmas.  I remember as a child going to the mall and seeing Santa's Chair with the sign saying when he would arrive.  Still to this day I get a little excited when I see his chair sitting awaiting his arrival.  So you can imagine my delight when I saw the new kit JGW Santas Repose!  I choose to do Santa's Chair.

I love this over-sized chair.  From the extra cushion on the back to the rolled arms.

Isn't this paper cute!  It is Maja Design - Vintage Winter, it is made in Sweden but there are a couple of scrapbook supply stores on-line that sell it here in America.  It has a very nice weight and works well with these projects.

In Jodi's design of this chair she has this Santa tag on the front but 
I didn't want to cover up my cute paper so I put mine on the back.

I just love this tag.  The detail is wonderful!

 And the best part of the chair is that the bottom comes off and you can fit a gift card in it.

I hope you have enjoyed my project today.

Garden Goddess ~ with Cyndy G.

It seems like just a few weeks ago summer was starting and now kids are starting to go back to school.  Don't forget tomorrow is the SVG Attic and 3 Girl JAM Back to School Blog Hop.  There will be plenty of inspiration for your Back to School projects and prizes!

For my project today I decided to make the Garden Goddess Canister from the JGW Summer Canister kit.

I used Graphic 45, Home Sweet Home papers.  They fit this project perfectly.

I substituted the flower pot that comes with the file with the seed packets 
from one of the sheets of Graphic 45 paper.

She has a sweet face.  I added a touch of chalk to give her rosy cheeks.

Close up of garden hat.

I really like her little garden hat.  I added some ribbon I received from 
3 Girl Jam.  I love the crinkle ribbon, it is very light and easy to use.
