Holiday Blessings with Firecracker Designs

This is my final post as a Guest DT member for Firecracker Designs by Pamela. *sniff* I would like to thank Pamela and Shelly for inviting me as a guest designer. I enjoyed my month on the team with these wonderfully supportive ladies.

For my final project I made another Christmas card for OWH. These poinsettias are so pretty. I printed them out twice and layered for some dimension. I love the texture on this card with the flocked papers & the lace. I used metallic gold paper under the poinsettias and the label/sentiment. You really can't see it too well in the photo but it looks really nice IRL.


Remember that Pamela is closing the store in December. If you have your eye on something, you may want to get it now before it is sold out. The coupon code BYEBYEFDC is good for 10% of your order before 10-1-10. You can keep track of all the information on sales, discounts and the store closing HERE.





Thank you for stopping by today! I hope you have a wonderful week end.

Pumpkin Spice - Birthday Wishes

While scrolling through the Pumpkin Spice shop, I noticed the great prices on the Christmas/Winter themed paper pads.    The fun colors and patterns on so many of the pages could be used for just about anything.   So I pulled out the “12 Days of Christmas” paper pad from My Mind’s Eye and set to work trying to make some cards.Since I never have enough birthday cards on hand, I thought that was what I would try first.  I started by punching out butterflies from several of the many patterns in the pad.    From there, I moved them around my card until I had an arrangement that I liked, added some stitching and stickers, and, “Ta Da!”, a birthday card! Since I also need a congratulations card for a friend , I thought I would see what I could make with the same paper pad.   I really love how this card turned out.(In real life, the glitter on the “U” is more similar to the aqua color in the paper.)So what do you think?   You can make some fabulous, non-holiday cards using holiday themed pap…

Catered Crop–Seeing Red

Hello!  I’m back. I’m sorry I have been gone so long.  Things have been so hectic that I haven’t had the chance to spend time in my craft room for months.  I was able to sneak away to my craft room for a while this weekend and hope to make it a regular event.I decided to use the Catered Crop’s Seeing Red recipe swap and take the opportunity to cook up some note cards to give to my mother in-law.  Although I only had time to make 4 cards, it was great to spend time in my craft room again.As always, Linda cooked up a fabulous Pinterest board to help get our creative mojo flowing.   Click on the photo below to go to her Seeing Red inspiration board.Don’t forget to link up your Seeing Red creations at the Catered Crop.Thank you for stopping by!Supplies:Stamps:  Fancy Flourishes & Little Labels from Papertrey Ink Inks:  Close To My Heart Hollyhock & Papertrey Ink Kraft inks Papers:  Papertrey white CS, My Mind’s Eye Miss Caroline Dolled Up 6x6 paper pad, misc. scrap red CS, Starbuc…
