Happy Thursday!! 
I hope that you & your family are all safe & well. 
For today's project I made a Christmas Shaker card.



For my card, I started with the Heidi Swapp shaker card kit. I had several pieces of this kit left over so I decided to use it all up. Also, I am a little behind on my Christmas cards. The polka dot paper is from the Winnie Christmas Wishes collection from Polkadoodles that I had in my paper stash. For the pretty bow, I used the Small Pretty Bow Die from My Creative Time and Darice glitter cardstock. Next, I adhered gold tinsel around the shaker dome and adhered white pearls as well.


HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!!!

For today's project and my last project for the November's Crafting Christmas All Year 2020 (#ccay2020) series....I created Bag/Gift Card Holders. It was a once a month collaboration with Lisa Happycrafter & Paulette Fullard over on YouTube and it has come to an end! I have to say that I had so much FUN with this series!! Thank you Lisa & Paulette!!! Thank you to all my crafty friends who stopped by & commented on all of my projects!!! Hugs to you!!

The circle & square shapes are from the Silhouette design store as well. I used the Craft Smart's Cute & Cozy paper pad and My Creative Time's Fun Size Holiday Bow Dies.

Slimline Christmas Card

Saturday, November 21, 2020 15 comments
Happy Saturday to all my bloggy friends!!
I hope that you are all safe & well.
For today's post, I am sharing a Christmas Slimline card that I made using this week's sketch #581 over at Tuesday Morning Sketches challenge blog. 


Since I do not have the dies to create a slimline card and it's a design that I would use often, I decided to recreate it on the Cricut Design Space. I used the 6x6 Winter Wonderland paper pad and the Odds & Ends from Doodlebug Design. I also used the Craft Smart's Holiday Glitz Glitter and the Wink of Stella glitter pen for some sparkle.

Joy Christmas Crafting with LadyKRE: Day 5

Saturday, November 7, 2020 4 comments
Happy Saturday to all my crafty friends!
I hope that everyone has a wonderful & safe weekend.
Today I am sharing what I created for the 7 Days of Joy Christmas Crafting with LadyKRE (Fun Kreations) on You Tube.
My DAY 5 project..........Christmas Pillow Boxes!!

For my Pillow Boxes, I used pattern papers that I had stored in my holiday stash and completely forgot about them, until today. I believe that they were from paper pads that I have used in the past projects (about 2-3 years ago). I used Jaded Blossom's Pillow Box Die and omitted the top portion. I adhered a long piece of gold wrapping ribbon onto the pillow boxes and adhered a pretty gold bow. I used the Medium Holiday Bow Die from My Creative Time. I stamped the sentiment on to cardstock with versamark and then I heat embossed it using gold embossing powder. I used the Jolly Jingles stamp set from Verve Stamps (no longer in business) and My Creative Time's Little Gift Tag Dies.

Coffin Treat Box

Thursday, October 29, 2020 2 comments
Happy Thursday!
I hope that you & your family are all safe & well. 
Well with Halloween in a couple of days I wanted to share this super cute treat holder that I made with the Coffin Treat Box Die from My Creative Time.
I was the winner of the MCT "104th Edition Release" Sneaky Peek Day #4 and my prize was the Coffin Treat Box Die. YAY! Thank you Miss Emma!


Here is my project.............................................

 For the base of the treat holder I used Recollections black cardstock. For the layers I used the "Spooky Boo" paper pad by Pebbles. 

To adhere the treat box holder and all of the die cuts I used the Bearly Art Precision Craft Glue (THE MINI) I had purchased the THE MINI after I came across several Youtubers that stated they've use it on their crafty projects as well as receiving a great review. Also because it has Multiple-Sized Tip which provides more choices in application. You get better accuracy, freedom, and control with precision tips. I used a small amount with no mess and it dried quickly. As for my opinion it works Awesome!! Especially on the smallest die cuts like the cute spider on the Coffin Treat Box. 

To decorate the front of the Coffin Box I used the cute ephemera from the same "Spooky Boo" collection. I used foam tape to adhere the die cuts for some dimension. I used the wink of stella glitter pen on the the bow, spider, ghost/pumpkin eyes, and the grass for some sparkle. For the black grass I used My Creative Time Stitched Grass Die. The pretty bow is from My Creative Time's Fun Size Holiday Bow Dies. It's my favorite bow dies!

For the inside of treat box I decided to add another layer by adding a fun tag using the center/bottom part of the coffin die. I stamped the To/From sentiments from the Merry & Bright stamp set from Annie's Paper Boutique to the back of the tag.

 (Front)                                                (Back)   


Underneath the tag, I filled the treat box with some hard candy caramels.... Yummy!!

Here is another look at the Coffin Treat Box Holder!!!

HAPPY HALLOWEEN TO ALL!!!!!
