Bright and Beautiful

I am having so much fun with the Bright and Beautiful Stamp Set and the Star Framelits.

This is a pocket card and the stamped stars are an ornament. A pretty card and an ornament.

I wish I could find my fancy ornament hangers to show how pretty is looks hanging on my tree!
I am sure they will show up under one of the piles of projects sitting on the craft table.

Personalized Gift Boxes

Thought it would be lots of fun to personalize gift boxes for our nieces this year. Getting ready to fill them with Project Life from Stampin' Up!

The flowers and leaves are from the Flower Frenzy Bigz die. So many ideas for this die. Can't wait until I have more time to play.

Right now, I am a busy elf getting ready for Christmas. More gift to finish. I love giving one of a kind handmade treasures.

Water Color Winter

Just wanted to share some ideas for the Watercolor Winter Card Kit. I attended an event where we made one of each card in the kit. The kit is a blast and provides endless possibilities for your creativity.

The kit provides instructions for the four cards or you can mix and match the parts to create your own ideas. Here are the cards I created.

Handmade Cards for Christmas Presents

I have been collecting cards that I have made from Paper Pumpkin and one from Sale A Bration last year. I decided that the Paper Pumpkin cards would make great gifts this Christmas. There is such a nice variety of occasions and they turned out so pretty.

Here is peak at what I am wrapping up as gifts this year.
Here they are all packaged up and ready for their new homes.

Paper Pumpkin All Shook Up, December 2014

Received My Paper Pumpkin in the mail today. Even with everything going with Christmas, I couldn't resist playing with the kit.

Here is one of the cards from the kit:

Here is an alternative card that I made from the negative image left over from the original card.
A little Coastal Cabana and Strawberry Slush made for bright and happy card.

Here is a picture of both cards together.

The kit is super fun and I can't wait to play with this some more. Thank you Pumpkin Fairy!

Endless Wishes

This is one of my favorite stamp sets. It has been on my desk since sometime this fall. It works for everything. Christmas cards, gift tags and sentiments in a handmade book that is in progress.

I love that you can mix and match the words. Little words and big words to mix and mingle!

Speaking of things I love, I am thrilled with the new color Lost Lagoon. It is such a beautiful blue. The snowflakes are stamped in three colors, Lost Lagoon, Pool Party and Crumb Cake.

This card is paired up with the Scalloped Tag Topper punch and the Northern Flurry Embossing Folder. The card base is Lost Lagoon. The tag is stamped with Pool Party and Pistachio Pudding ink.
