What? Too soon? I know, I've raced by Fall and I'm now on to Christmas. Actually, not really. It's just this one card. I found one very similar to this on Stampin Up's Facebook group and I love the simplicity of it. This uses the tree rings from the Rings of Love pattern paper, which I cut out. Then I stamped the leaves and die cut more leaves and the berry springs to go with it. The Rings of Love paper is one of the free Sale-a-bration … [Read more...] about Merry… Christmas?
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!
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
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

This Wednesday I shared my Gold Medal Ribbon winning Sheep (you can see that post here). I hear Fence Jumping has some serious competition and the practices are rigorous. It seems the judges tend to fall asleep as they count the sheep jumping over the fence. Ha! Okay, sorry, lame joke. After reading the post, my Mom suggested I should make one more Olympic themed card in honor of the end of the Olympics. Well, I loved her idea. … [Read more...] about And the Olympics Are Over
I'm kicking off my Sale-a-bration sharing with a nod to the Summer Olympics. My lovely little sheep just won a gold medal in fence jumping. Ha! I did my best adding what's supposed to look like a gold medal around the neck. I think it's good enough. The Counting Sheep stamp set and the Sheep Dies are both Sale-a-bration items. Plus the gold medal is made from the Be Dazzling Sale-a-bration paper too. The Sheep Die set is pretty amazing. It … [Read more...] about Gold Medal Sheep
Our Holiday Catalog starts tomorrow! Can you believe we are already eight months into the year? I don't know where the year has gone, but here we are getting ready for another school year and the Holidays are quickly approaching. I have my fingers crossed that Holiday Season 2021 is going to be better than Holiday Season 2020 (thanks, Covid). Every year, when I receive the Holiday Catalog, I debate over and over what to make first. I'm dying … [Read more...] about Starting Tomorrow
