Holly Jolly Christmas

Hey there crafty friends!!
I hope you are all having a terrific Tuesday!!
Today I am taking over the Jaded Blossom blog as one of their December Guest Designers!! Woo Hoo!!

I decided to make a fun little treat box that would be perfect to give to a friend, neighbor, co-worker, postman, teacher, etc. 


I created my box using the Scallop Caddy Die and decorated it with some fun patterned papers. I added a fun little holly border using the Christmas Banner Dies to the top of the front panel and added some glossy accents to the berries.  Next up was Santa!! I colored him from the Holly Jolly Christmas stamp set and added some liquid applique to the white parts of his suit and puffed it up with my heat gun for some dimension. He was added to the front of my box with some foam tape. I stamped out my greeting, also from Holly Jolly Christmas, onto a flag from the Card Layer Dies 1. I tucked it a little behind the Santa, making sure it hung off the edge of the box on the other side. I added a small bow from the Bow Dies and added some holly to the middle. 


I think it turned out so cute!! 

A big thanks to Michelle and Candace for allowing me to take over the blog today and be a guest designer!! I had so much fun making my project!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!!
I hope you all have a great crafty day!

`~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

Here is a look at the card that I made with this super cute stamp, Maggie - Awareness Is Key


I created my card base from a file from SVGCuttingFiles called, Center Step Edged Open Scallop Card Base and used some patterned paper from Me & My Big Ideas to decorate it. I stamped out that sweet image and colored her with my Copic markers and paper pieced her dress. I popped her up with some foam tape onto a stitched oval die cut and added it to the front panel of my card base. I added my greeting by cutting out a tag from the Mini Tag 2 set from Jaded Blossom and adding the word "HOPE" by cutting out some letters from the Alphabet Dies 2 set, also from Jaded Blossom. I finished off my card with some pink ribbon and some pearls.


I can think of so many organizations that I would love to bring awareness to. I kept tossing so many different ones around in my head before deciding on Breast Cancer, so I'm sure you will be seeing me using this stamp again.

Hi crafty friends!

I made my card base from some deep red cardstock and layered it with some fun patterned papers. I added some thin ribbon and a little bow. I colored up Felicity with my Copic markers, making sure she was in the holiday spirit with some festive colored clothes ;) I stamped my greeting from the Happy Brew Year stamp set from Jaded Blossom and then popped Felicity up with some foam tape onto my card front. I finished off the card with some snowflakes from Jaded Blossom's Winter Banner Dies and some white and clear Nuvo drops. 

Here is a look at the inside of my card:

On the left side, there is room for a message and there is a little pocket on the right side to hold a gift card. I thought a gift card to a coffee place worked so well with this stamp!!

Here are a look at the tags I made:


I love how these turned out!! And making them was so super simple! I used the Treat Tag Die to create my tag base with some patterned papers.  I cut out some bows from the Bow Dies and added them to my tags. I stamped out the "Joy" and "Noel" from the Noel stamp set, did a little simple coloring with my Copics and then used one of the labels in the Label Shape Dies to cut them out. I added some glitter to the ornaments and all around the edge of the label die cut and popped it up with some foam tape. I finished off my tags with a little jingle bell in the bow center and some thread to tie it onto the package.

Sketch N Scrap #141

Hey crafty friends!!
Happy Wednesday!
Today starts a new sketch challenge over at 

Just in case you don't already know, Sketch N Scrap is a sketch challenge blog that offers layout and card sketches each month! Layout sketches are posted on the 1st and 15th of each month and card sketches are posted on the 5th and 20th of each month. 

Here is a look at the second layout sketch of the month provided to us by Heather:


here is my take on the above sketch:


This layout was really fun to work on. My daughter and I have very similar taste in music and love a lot of the same bands, so when Panic! At The Disco was coming, we knew we had to not only go but meet the guys. The first two pics are of us before the Meet n Greet started and then the bottom photo is a pic of my daughter with the band. I made this for her layout display in her room so I will probably make another layout of me with the band for mine. I have to say, they are some of the funnest & nicest guys and we really had a great time, not only meeting them but at the concert later that evening, they put on an amazing show!! This layout was a little messier than I'm used to but I enjoyed actually using some of the mists that I have been collecting over the years for the splatters  lol!! I also typed up the setlist, trimmed it up and distressed it a bit before adding it to the pocket. The tickets are an older stamp and punch set from SU!. I cut out the title using my Cricut and the arrow embellishment is a combination of some stamps from MFT and MCT. I finished off the layout with some doodling and a few Nuvo drops.

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and take a look at my latest creation!
I appreciate it so much!

Santa Ornament Card

Hey crafty friends!
Today is my day to post over on the SVG Cutting Files blog and I will be showcasing a new file that will be in the store Friday called, Ornament Santa.


I created a shaped card by die cutting glitter cardstock using some rectangle dies from Jaded Blossom. I stamped a tree branch onto some white cardstock and used a stitched rectangle die, also Jaded Blossom, to cut it out and layered that on top of my card base. I added that sweet Ornament Santa (isn't he cute??) to my card and added some gold thread so that he appears to be hanging from the branch. I used the text tool in my Cricut and typed out Believe and cut it out with some more glitter paper. I finished off my card with some clear sequins and a couple of drops of gold stickles. So sparkly and pretty!
