Winter BFF’s

Pin It

Only 25 days until Christmas! Yikes – where has the time gone? Have you started your Christmas shopping? I’ve am almost done. (I did a lot of it yesterday evening. There were some great Cyber Monday sales.) I am trying to stay away from the malls and big-block stores as much as possible this year and have been doing more shopping on Etsy.com and other similar sites. I can’t wait until the packages start arriving.

I am almost done making Christmas cards too! I still need to order photo cards for family, but since I need a picture to put on them I’m not quite ready to order them yet. Today I wanted to share a Christmas card I made using an image from Whimsy & Stars Studio. Aren’t these little guys sweet?

Thank you for stopping by! Have a great day!

Supplies:

  • Stamps: Winter Friends (digital stamp) by Whimsy and Stars Studio, Holiday Treats by Papertrey
  • Inks: Close To My Heart Cranberry
  • Papers: Neenah Crest solar white CS, Papertrey Kraft & Pure Poppy CS, My Mind’s Eye 12 Days of Christmas paper pad

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…
