This is it, the very last day of the July-December Catalog. If there is anything still on your wish list, today is your last chance to get it. And tomorrow, the January-June Catalog starts along with Sale-a-Bration! Sala-a-Bration is one of my favorite times of the year. There's nothing better than getting a FREE gift every time you make a purchase that's $50 or more (pre-tax/shipping). There are so many good things in the … [Read more...] about It All Starts Tomorrow
On Wednesday I shared that fabulous treat holder with the mini coffee cups and box. I ended up with some extra bits when making the treat holder, so I turned my leftovers into cards. Here is the first card using up the things I used to decorate the coffee cup. I added the gorgeous pinecone paper as my background and it pairs so well with the pinecone stamps. My second card used up some of the label pieces and strips of pattern paper … [Read more...] about Happy New Year!
Even though Christmas has passed, I still have a couple things to share to for the end of the July-December Catalog. First up is this adorable treat holder box and goodies. The gold polka-dotted box makes the perfect little tray to hold a couple sweet treats. This box just fits the plastic 3 x 3" clear boxes along with the Mini Coffee Cups. I decorated the clear box with a wrap around the outside. I used the Warm Wraps die to cut the band … [Read more...] about Friends Like You

Happy Christmas Eve! Tonight Santa will visit millions of homes all over the world bringing joy to people everywhere. Even though I'm an adult, I still enjoy the magic of the season and Santa. Today's project was made by one of my downline, Lyndi. The tiny frame fits an image about 3" x 3". This is just perfect for the tiny Santa. Lyndi stamped his suit on our white Velvet sheets and his face and beard on our shimmery white paper. I love the … [Read more...] about Here Comes Santa
I was at a local craft store not too long ago and came across these inexpensive wood frames in their discount bin. I thought they'd be great for crafting. I wanted to keep this simple so I left the frame the natural wood rather than painting it. I cut my pattern paper to fit the inside of the frame. I do find with inexpensive frames like this, you really want to cut to fit it as they tend not to be a standard measurement. The green pattern … [Read more...] about Merry
Periodically, people ask me what they should do with Paper Pumpkin kits they don't like. My suggestion is to use all the pieces to make something you love. I actually loved the November Kit, Gifts Galore, but I really wanted to stretch all the pieces. This is what the Kit directions have you make. These treat boxes are just the cutest. The directions have you use two of each snowman, tree, and presents - one on each side of the treat box. I … [Read more...] about What Can I do with a Paper Pumpkin kit?
As I was working on my Ornament for the post this past Wednesday, I kept getting these beautiful backgrounds behind the trees. But with the ornament and Cloche Domes, you couldn't see much of the sky in the background. Today's card shows that gorgeous background and you can see more of the forest behind the village. What's amazing is that all the backgrounds that I made have a color variation in them so they are all slightly different. To … [Read more...] about One More Snowy Village
