Merry Christmas Deer

Hi crafty friends! Happy Monday!
 Today I would like to share with you a Christmas card featuring the adorable stamp,

I started my card by making an A2 cardbase from some red card stock. I made a little scene with some hill die cuts and some snowflake patterned paper. I added my greeting, a bow and adhered some striped vellum behind my scene panel and popped it up onto my card base with foam tape. I colored that sweet little Lucille with my Copic markers, paper pieced her shirt and popped her up with more foam tape. I finished off my card with some snowflakes from Jaded Blossom and added some pearls to the centers. I think she is adorable!!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
I hope you have a great crafty day!

Sketch N Scrap #143

Hey crafty friends!!
Happy Friday!
Today starts a new sketch challenge over at 

Just in case you don't already know, Sketch N Scrap is a sketch challenge blog that offers layout and card sketches each month! Layout sketches are posted on the 1st and 15th of each month and card sketches are posted on the 5th and 20th of each month. 

Here is a look at the second layout sketch of the month provided to us by Heather:

Here is my layout I created based on the sketch:

Last year my daughter and I got our picture taken with Santa on a whim. As soon as I saw the sketch, the idea for this picture being on a layout came to mind! I scanned the original picture so that I could manipulate it a bit for this layout. My daughter and I were both wearing bright colors that didn't really go with the red. so I turned the picture into a black and white and then turned everything that was red back to red. I love the way it turned out!! The app I used was called Color Pop. Once I had the picture the way I wanted it, I printed it out and matted it onto some white and red glitter cardstock. I added it to my gray striped paper, and added my die cut word, Believe, to the bottom of the layout. I die cut some stars and just started adding them and filling in some of the gaps with sequins and Nuvo drops. I added the date on a label and some doodling around the border and called it good lol! It is so incredibly glittery and sparkly in person, this picture definitely doesn't do it justice. I love how it turned out!

This is my last post as a deign team member for Sketch N Scrap. I have had so much fun being on this wonderful team with all these talented ladies!!

Holly Jolly Christmas

Hey there crafty friends!!
I hope you are all having a terrific Tuesday!!
Today I am taking over the Jaded Blossom blog as one of their December Guest Designers!! Woo Hoo!!

I decided to make a fun little treat box that would be perfect to give to a friend, neighbor, co-worker, postman, teacher, etc. 

I created my box using the Scallop Caddy Die and decorated it with some fun patterned papers. I added a fun little holly border using the Christmas Banner Dies to the top of the front panel and added some glossy accents to the berries.  Next up was Santa!! I colored him from the Holly Jolly Christmas stamp set and added some liquid applique to the white parts of his suit and puffed it up with my heat gun for some dimension. He was added to the front of my box with some foam tape. I stamped out my greeting, also from Holly Jolly Christmas, onto a flag from the Card Layer Dies 1. I tucked it a little behind the Santa, making sure it hung off the edge of the box on the other side. I added a small bow from the Bow Dies and added some holly to the middle. 

I think it turned out so cute!! 

A big thanks to Michelle and Candace for allowing me to take over the blog today and be a guest designer!! I had so much fun making my project!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!!
I hope you all have a great crafty day!

Stamp Anniething's December Release!

Penguin Have a Ball will be available in the store Friday along with the other 2 stamps we show you  this week!!
Here is a look at the project that I created with this sweet stamp:

I decided to make a little bag filled with some yummy treats. I filled up a gusset bag with some paper shred and some candy and then set off to make my topper to hold the bag closed. I used the Ric Rac Topper Die from Jaded Blossom and cut it from some black cardstock. I added a white panel that I inked up a little bit with some blue ink for some snowy hills. I colored in my sweet Katy - Have A Ball girl with some copics and paper pieced parts of her hat and cape with some black and white checked paper. I popped her up with some foam tape and added snowballs, snowflake confetti and a white crochet thread bow. So super cute!!
