Cheers Bitches by Design Team Member Rhonda Thomas!

Ha! I love this trio of snarky matchboxes by Rhonda! She used a mix of both sizes of the chunky matchboxes with windows, and all start with papers from the Jingle 6×6 Pad. And, of course, each one would be the perfect gift for someone on your list, but perhaps not for all tastes.

And, the images! There are big images in the background of each from from the Snarky Xmas Tags Collage Sheet and Sassy Santas Collage Sheet (and check Rhonda’s post for how she make the main characters pop with the use of foam tape).

Read more about the fun matchboxes (and see lots more photos) in Rhonda’s blog post. And here is her supply list (with ideas for little props & trims, plus the boxes and the collage sheets).

Psst: check below in the Giveaway for ANOTHER new Christmas project by a different Design Team Member!

EVERYTHING in Kristin’s Supply List is included in today’s Giveaway!

I’m only highlighting a few of the SEVEN spiffy items in the supply list/Giveaway:
Christmas Repro Metal Trinket Tins (nice and deep for creating a scene inside… and you get a set of 2 different designs in the set!)
Christmas Trees Collage Sheet (aw… that Santa, the tree, and the little tyke/dog are from this sheet)
Small Retro Xmas Tags & Labels Collage Sheet (for that “HO HO HO” sign!)

Just click on this Supply List link for photos and links to everything in Kristin’s artwork, which are also all included in the Giveaway! And see more photos of the project in Kristin blog post.

Bonus: I’m also including a few things from Rhonda’s matchboxes:
Snarky Xmas Tags Collage Sheet
Sassy Santas Collage Sheet
Silver Glittered Leaf Pick (often forgotten but little snips of these glittery leaves really helped the rosettes of snowflakes & ribbons on the matchboxes snap — yes, I’m including a set of the snowflakes, too!)
