Deckin' The Halls - and a freebie DIY Christmas craft

Hello digi lovers! Are you sick of Christmas kits yet?? I know I am so this will be the last one I show you. Promise!
Actually I don't mind showing you this one because it is a little different. It has a gorgeous colour scheme. A little quirky and a little shabby. Traditional style kit but not traditional colours. Ok I have shown you this one is the Jingle Bell Rock kit. But just to confuse you all, Courtney and I have put our parts together as a collab at the Den. We changed the name (remember confusing bit?) to "Deckin the Halls" and seeing how Courtney and I have done heaps of collabs together (and plan to do more) we have our own section at the Den where we are known as Kelly-Jo and Courtney Designs! Confused yet?? Now what we do have at the Den that is exclusive to there is a stunning set of photo Christmas cards. We got our wonderfull CT ladies to help out and ended up with 30 cards! So to help you a bit we split them into 2 packs. Pack 1 and pack 2. But if you want to get them all you can get them in a money saving bundle.
So now I get to show of our snazzy new logo and previews (made by the uber talented Courtney) for our new collab! yay!

Now onto the DIY!
I love crafting with paper at Christmas time, well anytime really, but Christmas you kinda get to do stuff you can't do during the year. I made a HUGE banner that hangs across my lounge wall that says....wait for it....Merry Christmas.....

another cute banner using the little clipart characters by Kate from Kitkat79Scraps....poor things are curling a little form all the humidity...I should have used a thicker cardstock..

 and some super classy Christmas crackers. Aren't they adorable!!!

If you would like to make some too, here are 2 downloads for you , the first is the instructions along with photos, the second is the template. Super easy and each cracker only takes a couple of minutes to make. To download, click on the image, it will open in a new window/tab and right click and "save". And if you feel like it please feel free to post your creations on my facebook wall, I would love to see what you all can do with it. Happy crafting!!
