Fan Feature Friday: Making it Merry #2

Happy New Year! This week's Fan Feature Friday showcases projects from the second week of Making it Merry, sponsored by Gossamer Blue. Every Friday, we showcase projects linked to our current issue, so be sure to share your projects for a chance to be featured.

Let's take a look at the festive projects that caught our eye this week...

1. Mandi's card pairs a festive Santa calendar tag and the pretty shine of a gold doily.

2. Wendi created this beautiful layered star, bursting with texture, for an ornament swap with her sisters.

3. June based her page on the current Sketchy Saturday (Sketch 003). The gold and silver details go perfectly with her jewelry making theme!

4. I don't know about you, but I never seem to have enough bows on hand. Now I know how to make my own, thanks to Ange's wonderful tutorial.

5. Giorgia upcycled these metal cookie cutters into pretty ornaments, using patterned paper, embellishments, paint and ribbon.

6. Michelle's merry layouts was created with Simple Stories DIY and Cozy Christmas collections. I love the hanging ornaments, topped with stars and tied off with festive bows!

7. Beatrice's card is perfectly festive and frosty. The layered red poinsettia is the perfect focal point.

8. Tam shared these snowy holiday scenes created in glass jars. Such a great gift or home decor idea, Tam!

9. Hilde linked this wonderful two-page layout. I don't know about you, but I struggle with two-pagers. Thank you for the beautiful inspiration, Hilde!

10. I'll leave you with these pretty snowflake ornament/gift tags linked up by Michelle. She found the snowflakes at the dollar store and built upon them with various embellishments.
