I love a Vintage Christmas . . .

. . . and today, with the help of some amazing digital products from Crafty Secrets, I have a new Vintage Christmas Canvas wall hanging to share with you!

Have you checked out Crafty Secrets lately?  OH MY GOSH ... there is SO MUCH going on over there!  A lot of your favorite papers & stamps have now been turned into DIGITAL IMAGES and are SO MUCH FUN to create with!  I just love the flexibility 'digital' printing provides!

Look at some of these beautiful digital papers . . .

and some of the printable that are available . . .
Aren't they FABULOUS ... perfect for ALL your Christmas projects!

OKAY ... now that I've shared a SMALL PORTION of these beautiful papers & printable available, here is what I created working with this new collection.  

What started out at a blank 11x14 canvas . . .

Turned into this BEAUTIFUL WORK OF ART!
I can't wait to hang it on the wall for the holidays!

Here is a list of some of the files I used for this creation:
From the soon to be released CD5-Christmas . . .
Paper:  br_christmas poem
Pngs:  Bingo Santa, Girl w/umbrella, Santa Tag
Template:  Winter Birds Box CS01 template

Of course, there was a bit of 'fussy cutting' done and a few other embellishments added to complete the look I was after, but all and all ... 95% of this creation is all Crafty Secrets/Heartwarming Vintage products!  Be sure to pop on over and see what all the excitement is about.
