Cut out desired tag and pocket from G45 Tags sheet and desired postcard from G45 ‘Holly and Ivy’ sheet. Ink all edges with gold ink. Fold and adhere pocket. Punch hole in center of tag and hang key with ribbon on front of tag and slip inside pocket. Adhere postcard to red plaid ’12 Days of Christmas’ that is cut 1” larger than postcard then adhere at a slight angle to the back side of ‘My True Love’ that is also 1” larger than red plaid.
Cut out a 5” x 12” strip of ‘My True Love’ . Fold the sides in to make an envelope that is 6 1/4” wide. The front will overlap about an inch. Take the front right corner and roll down. Trim the front left corner at an angle that exposes the card inside. Adhere the right side over the left. Punch out desired flowers and adhere with G45 Metal Brad to front left side of envelope. Place pocket at an angle to front right and adhere. Before placing postcard inside adhere the word ‘Turtle Dove’ from ‘Joyeux Noel’ sheet and adhere to top of postcard with G45 Ornate Metal Label Holder.
This next treasure from Diane's workshop is a splendid piece of holiday home decor. Here we have a Tweleve Days of Christmas altered shadowbox!

And now it's time for some magnificent inspiration from our Design Team! We have two gorgeous crafts to share with you that feature our collection A Ladies' Diary. You are going to love the soft pastel colors and lavish designs in today's crafts! We begin with this elegant layout by Karen Shady. The vintage spirit of A Ladies Diary comes to life in this pretty LO. Charming borders, radiant embellishments and a sweetly sentimental photo make this LO an instant classic! Here is what Karen had to say about it!
"This is a photo of my beautiful Grandmother. She was a wonderful lady, and a very important part of my life. She passed away over 13 years ago now, and I still think of her every day, and miss her dearly. She was a very talented singer, and loved nothing more than to dress up and sing in front of a crowd. The elegant image of the blue lady, from the ‘Ladies' Diary’ paper, reminded me a lot of my Nan." -Karen
