Happy Monday to all!!
Before I go on to my project I wanted to say to all my crafty friends...I hope that you are all safe & well. My prayers, love & hugs go out to every single one of you. As for me & my family we are all well. I am working from home. I am finding myself cooking more (which William love) and continuing with little fixtures that needed to be done around our home too.
 So for today........I am sharing what I created for this month's Crafting Christmas All Year 2020 (#ccay2020). It is a collaboration with Lisa Happycrafter & Paulette Fullard over on YT. It is a once a month collaboration, last Saturday of the month but you can make a project and join in anytime. You can post it on IG, Facebook ,YT or on your blog just add (#ccay2020). Remember, you can make ANYTHING as long as it is a Christmas theme. I have to say that I am having so much FUN!! 

For March's project I created..........Christmas Tags.

For my Tags, I used a stocking die that was gifted to me last year and I was finally able play with it. Yay...me!! For my papers, I used Craft Smart's cute & cozy Christmas paper pad and Darice glitter cardstock. For both sentiments, I used the "Merry & Bright" stamp set from Annie's Paper Boutique. To complete my Christmas tags, I used gingham ribbon from Michaels for my pretty bows and added rhinestones for some sparkles. The rhinestones were also gifted to me from a 2019 Christmas swap.

Happy Saturday to all!!
I hope that you are all safe and doing well.
As for me & my family we are all safe at home. I've started on some Spring cleaning, a little organizing and was able to craft a little too. I am currently working on some Easter projects so for today I have a Easter 2 page layout. The Easter layout is for Toni's @craftpurge "2yr YouTube Anniversary Challenge". I am a huge fan of Toni. She's talented and VERY sweet! 


SO HERE IS MY ENTRY..............

For my 2 page layout I used the Easter Fun Paper Collection and the Easter Fun Die Cut Pack from Miss Kate Cuttables. It is just ADORABLE!! For the photo frames I used the Loopy Frame Die from Gina Marie Designs and Darice glitter cardstock which I purchased on Amazon. The cute bunny ears are from the Cricut Design Space. For extra cuteness I sprinkled/adhered some pretty enamel dots. Super cute, right?

If you would like to see last month's project you can click on the following link.... HERETo begin, I used the Santa Stops Here collection by Bella Blvd. 

For February's project I created..........Christmas cards and Bag Toppers.

For my Cards, I used my scraps to create the card design & layers. I adhered a chunky embellishment using handmade paper crepe rosettes, variety of dies including Spellbinders wreath shapeabilities die set and ephemera from the same collection. I was inspired by a tutorial on craftingwithlillier (chunky embellishments) over on YT. Thank you Lilly!! She is Amazing!!
                                                                                                   
           
       


For my Bag ToppersI adhered a chunky embellishments to each one.
I used the Ric Rac Topper Die from Jaded Blossom which is one of my favorite dies! I also used the Simon Says Stamp Marisa Snowflake Wafer Die which I absolutely love!!




I made pretty bows using the My Creative Time's Fun Size Holiday Bow Die and the Holiday Glitz Glitter paper pad (hot buy) from Michaels. 

Next, I placed them in a clear bag and adhered the Bag Toppers with double sided tape.

Happy Friday!
I hope that you all have a wonderful weekend.
Today I am sharing another card that I made for the Cards for Little Hearts’ 2020 Heart-Theme card drive.

Here is my card........................
For the base of my card I used the stitched rectangle dies from Gina Marie Designs and the Pebbles "Loves Me" paper pad. The scallop heart die cut is from the Cricut Design Space. I used the Valentine Ladybug Boy file from Miss Kate Cuttables. The sentiment is from the Smile stamp set from Annie's Paper Boutique. Super cute, right?


"February is Heart Month.  An important time to not only raise awareness about heart disease that affect hearts of all sizes and promote healthy habits, but also a great time to help lift the spirits of children living with congenital heart disease.  Please join us for Heart month and together let us shower the children with heart-themed “Thinking of You” cards of love, hope and encouragement. Anyone is welcome to help make and send in cards – from a young child who loves to doodle to an experienced, acclaimed card maker. However, before getting started, please do take a moment to review the guideline (Here)."
