Merry Christmas

Hello and welcome back!
I hope you had a merry Christmas and will have an amazing new year!

I am back today to share an easy but beautiful Christmas card I have up at Dies R Us.

Here is a close up:

I cut the Wintertide Frame from blue foil paper. I adhered it on patterned paper using the Best Glue Ever. I cut my sentiment, Merry Christmas,  3 times from white cardstock and used the Best Glue Ever to adhere that as well.

These are the products I used:

Hello Winter!

I had some scrappy time this morning, so I played along with a few challenges. I combined the single page sketch at Stick It Down with the golden globe stash challenge at Scrap Our Stash and the swanky swatches challenge at Paper Issues and came up with this fun winter page:

I used the Frosty Flakes cut file from The Cut Shoppe along with the November 2016 Hip Kit Club kit. I colored the cut file with some mists and then machine stitched it to my background. I fussy cut the trees from one of the papers. I used some old Pink Paislee alphas for my title:

I added several layers of papers and a few die cuts under and around my photo. I also added some enamel dots and a few more fussy cut trees:

Here I added a Crate Paper clip, I just removed the clip. I added a few die cuts, another fussy cut tree , an enamel dot and a punched snowflake:

This was such a fun page to create!
Here are the challenges I used:

Hey there scrappy friends!
I have a layout up over on the ScraPerfect blog today.
I used the Best Glue Ever along with the No Clog Writing Cap attached, a cut file from The Cut Shoppe and an old Crate Paper collection for this layout of  Sierra and her boyfriend at Vegan Fest in Madison:

I used watercolors to create my background and then added black mist spatters.
I love the combination of this glue with the cap, it is perfect for adding glue to small spaces like this cut file:

I backed the cut file with patterned papers. I added some layers of papers under my photo and popped it up with foam. I added some chipboard, stickers and a flair from the collection:

Because of the mixed media work on my background, I added the Best Glue Ever to adhere all the chipboard pieces:

Thanks for stopping and have a great day!

Snowflake Card

I played along with a card sketch at Stick It Down this morning. I used a few different papers: the blue snowflake one is from Fancy Pants Holiday Hustle and the silver glitter paper is from Walmart. I also added a torn strip of vellum and stitched in place:

The blue snowflakes are die cuts from Fancy Pants Cottage Christmas collection. I just trimmed some of the white off the outside. I used two different snowflake punches and added some bling. The sentiment stickers are from Simple Stories.
I love how sparkly this card is, it's even better in person!
Thanks for stopping and have a great day!

One More Card

Hello again!
I am back to share another Christmas card using a Sketch-N-Scrap sketch. I also used Fancy Pants Holiday Hustle for this card:

I punched a few circles, added some stitching, a die cut and fussy cut the sentiment from a patterned paper. 

Here's the sketch:

Enjoy the rest of your day!

Merry Holidays

Hello friends! Hope you had a wonderful Christmas and that santa brought you everything you asked for!
I love this time of year, I am off work and enjoy a bit more scrappy time!
 I played along with a sketch from Sketch-N-Scrap and used Fancy Pants Holiday Hustle for this Christmas card: (Yes, I have a head start for next year!)

I fussy cut the sentiment from one of the papers, placed it on the snowflake die cut and layered  a few papers under it. I also added some machine stitching. 
Here's the sketch:

Tis The Season Gift Bag

It's my day up on the Whisker Graphics blog and today I am sharing a fun gift bag! 
I used the Red Striped Bag from the Bigger Bitty Bags Sample Set for my gift bag. I folded the top over, punched a hole on each side and ran Divine Twine in the colors Red Solid, Green Solid and Aqua through the holes and tied a bow. 

I stitched together a few patterned papers and adhered to the Bigger Bitty Bag. Then I added a silver doily. I placed a Green Polka Dot Little Bitty Bag on top of the doily along with a Sweet Stick Label in black, some tangled Green Solid Divine Twine . I added a Large White Colored Tag inside the Green Polka Dotted Little Bitty Bag. I added patterned paper to a White Small Colored Tag and to a Metal Rimmed Circle Tag and tied them to the large tag using Divine Twine.

I can't wait to add a few goodies to this fun gift bag and give to a coworker!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Hey there!
I am  here today to share a Christmas layout with you. This layout was created for the mood board at Off The Rails I used PhotoPlay Mad Plaid, Lindy's mists and Divine Twine:

I added some mist to the background using the packaging technique. I added a frame and a few layers of patterned paper, stickers and a few fussy cut trees by my photo:

I fussy cut the "Believe In The Magic of Christmas" and popped it up with some craft foam. I added some Divine Twine to pull the layout all together and keep your eye moving:

Another fussy cut tree, a fussy cut ornament and a sticker topped off the right side of my layout:

Hope you are inspired by my layout and join us in the mood board challenge!

Life Is Made with ScraPerfect

Hey there!
I am back to share a Christmas layout I have up over at ScraPerfect. I used the Best Glue Ever and the No Clog Writing Cap. These two together are perfect for creating a layout!
Here's my layout using PinkFresh December Days:

The fine tip of the No Clog Writing Cap is perfect for adding glue to these small die cut letters:

I keep my No Clog Writing Cap on my bottle of the Best Glue Ever at all times. This glue works on a variety of surfaces, including craft foam. which I use to add dimension to my layout:

Here are a few close ups:
