Holiday Ornaments

 Hi friends,

The holiday season is officially here and I have some fun little ornaments to share with you.  I made these cute little tree and gingerbread ornaments using the Winter Charms and the Holiday Charms from Karen Burniston along with some shaker domes.  The larger snowflakes are from Elizabeth Craft Designs.  I cut a hole in the center of the snowflake and then added the dome.  They are double sided so great for the tree.

Gift Wrapping Time


It's time to shop and wrap up those gifts to place under the tree.  I like to make double duty items for the holidays.  This trio of gift tags can be attached to your packages and then placed on the tree as an ornament.  I like to add a personal note and the year on the back of mine.

I created this fun trio by starting with the Wood Holiday Collection from Clear Scraps. I painted them and then added some fun embellishments from my stash of gems and rhinestones. 

Let the gift wrapping begin,

Happy Birthday Wishes

 Hello Crafty Friends,

Today I am sharing a card made for a friend's birthday which is actually tomorrow.  I think it would be a bummer to have your birthday on a holiday, but it seems that happens to her most years.  Anyway, I hope it is happy!! 

All the dies I used on this card are from Karen Burniston and they are listed below.

Happy Turkey Day,

Ho Ho Ho

 Hello friends,

I just finished a fun little card that I thought you may enjoy.  This Rockin Rectangle Pop Up from Karen Burniston is so generic it can used in many ways.  

On the front I have Edgar enjoying some wine while he is celebrating the holiday season.  I used the Howdy die to make the Ho Ho Ho.

Inside I have added one of the sentiments that captures the holiday season.  Cheers!!

Thanks for stopping by,

Christmas Card Display

 It's almost here!  Christmas Card Season.  I love to receive and display the lovely cards we get from friends and family and I have a fun way to do it with this festive display board.  

I began this project using the Bulb Medium DIY Pallet Shape.
I painted the Pallet Shape a festive green and then added some gems and some metallic paper strips.  Actually, the paper strips are car detailing that I found at the auto supply shop.  It is self adhesive as well.

 Next came some tiny clothespins from my stash.  I simply glued the clothespins on leaving room for all the cards to be seen.

To finish off the ornament I painted the top silver and then added some silver crimped paper.
After a hole was drilled in the top I added some ribbon to hang it.

Thanks for stopping by,

Mod Christmas Trees

 Sometimes it's just fun to do something unexpected.  I love how these trees turned out and will use them on my dinning table throughout the Christmas season.  I used the 3D Chipboard X-mas Trees to create this fun display.


I began this project by first painting my trees in three fun colors.  They come apart and lay flat for painting and decoration.  If you are a crafter you probably have lots of fun embellishments around your house.  I simply added some fun pearls, rhinestones and gems to the trees.  For the stars I used double sided adhesive tape and glitter.  On the bottom truck I added some crimped cardstock.

This project is fast and easy so you still have plenty of time to create one for yourself.

Happy Crafting,
