My Creative Time's 12 Days of Christmas Day 11!


***12 Days of Christmas Give Away Alert***
To qualify for ALL the AMAZING giveaways for the next 12 days, you must comment on every blog in this hop! You will have until Tues, Dec 13th @ midnight to have all of your comments in! VERY IMPORTANT, PLEASE LEAVE A WAY FOR US TO CONTACT YOU IF YOU ARE ONE OF THE WINNER'S!
There are some AMAZING giveaways for this special 12 day event & some SURPRISES to help celebrate "My Creative Time's" One Year Anniversary! Yep, Emma released her 1st set of stamps one year ago! So make sure you are tuned in because this is ONE hop you do NOT want to miss!;)
 
Good morning everyone! Well, our 12 Day's of Christmas is just about to come to a end sniff, sniff. I can't believe we are already on day 11! If you have arrived here from Katie's blog then you are on the right path! If not and you want to start at the beginning jump on over to Emma's blog!
 
Before I get into my project for the day just wanted to ask your opinion about my photo. I was playing around and added what PhotoShop calls a Vignette to the edges (that blackish looking glow) In Picnik it lets you add a white looking glow but I don't guess Photoshop has this option :( So, do you like it or not? I'm kinda half and half so just thought I'd get your reactions to what you think! Or to if you know how to change it from a black to a white glow please let me know!
 
Today I have another tag to share with you! I used the Very Merry Tags cartridge. I also used some pattern paper from the Imagine Cartridge, Mr. Frosty. I thought I would try something new (well new to me!) I had seen this awhile back on Sheila's, She's a Sassy Lady's Blog. Here's a link to her blog where she has a video and several examples of this type of tag. I used Peachy Keen's Everyday Character faces on the mittens. I used Emma's Scallop and Stitched Circle die plus her Mixed Holiday Sentiment set. I swear this stamp set has been very well loved! I don't even put it up! The ribbon is from my stash! After I had the tag completed I added stickles to make it all sparkly. Well, that's a wrap for day 11! I'll see you back here tomorrow for our last day of the 12 Day's of Christmas! Hugs, Leanne
 
Next stop is Linsey's blog!

Cassandra said...

So cute and pretty all at the same time. Love the glitter. and I like the vignette on this picture because it's all white. But if you had a darker photo, I'm not sure I would like this vignette on that...might make the whole picture look too dark. Way to experiment :)

Fabulous tag Leanne! Love those adorable little mittens! As far as the vignette goes, I love adding them to photos, and I have used them many times in the past. I know with my Photoshop CS5, you can make the vignette smaller or closer to the edge, or you can change the opacity to have a lighter effect. Not sure if your program has those features or not! I love your tag, great job!
