Merry Christmas To You And Yours

I hope you are having a very Merry Christmas!  I will be back after the New Year!

I just thought I would pop in and share this year's Christmas card.  This card was my idea and my friend Janelle over at  JP Designs brought it to digital life!  You can find Janelle here.  The corners were rounded when they were printed and they are gorgeous in real life!

Those beautiful photos are by Tami C.  She is FABULOUS!  Aren't my kids the cutest?  She captured them so well!  Yes...the little one is quite the sassy pants!

Merry Christmas!  I hope you have a wonderful day and a Happy 2013!

Coffee Cup Gift Card Holder-Teacher Christmas Gift

Hi everyone!  Tis the season....to be very busy!  I hope you are finding time to relax and enjoy the season.  I'm hoping to get all of my Christmas stuff done this week so that the next couple of weeks can be spent enjoying family and the wonder of the season.

Today I have some quick and easy teacher gifts for you.  They could actually be used for the teens in your life, or someone you need a small, quick gift for.  They are easy to mass produce.  This happens to be what I will be giving to my daughter's high school teachers.

You'll see what I've stuffed inside in the video below.  The video also walks you through the entire creation of this drink sleeve.  Isn't it the perfect touch for these Christmas coffee cups?  These drink sleeves can also be made of felt....and they are fabulous in felt!

The drink sleeve die is from Lifestyle Crafts.  You can use coupon code GLITTER to get 20% off of your order there!

Holly Jolly Christmas & Bonus Silhouette Studio Tutorial

Hi everyone!  I hope your week has started out great.  I spent a lot of time getting stuff done today...and that always makes me feel good.  I'm hoping to head out and do some Christmas shopping tomorrow after a meeting at work.  It's such a busy time of the year!

Today's card is a super simple project.  It can be put together pretty quickly.  It uses a lot of Silhouette cuts, which makes it the perfect project to mass produce.

As for the fonts, I used Lane Narrow and Kushtie Script.  I have a feeling a lot of people will be asking about that.

I've included a video of the assembly of this card, as well as a bonus video showing how I created the "print and cut" version of the polaroid frame.  There are links to all of the products I used in this project below, including the Silhouette cuts I used.

I think this card will be for my friend Kristen.  She loves holly leaves and berries.

As I was thinking about a project for next week I was wondering what all of you would like to see.  More Christmas?  A break from Christmas?  A specific type of project?  Let me know in the comments below!

Have a fabulous day!

Joy To The World Card - Knotty And Nice Release

Hello everyone!  I've been having such a wonderful time playing with the new Knotty And Nice Gift Sets from Lifestyle Crafts.  I love these new dies.  You can see a bunch of projects that I creating using these dies below.  As you can see, I'm in full Christmas mode.  But these dies can and will be used year round!

Today I'm sharing a video tutorial on this Joy To The World card.  You can see the video below.  You'll also find links to all of the products I used for this card, and all of the projects I created with the Knotty And Nice dies, below.

Don't forget, when shopping at Lifestyle Crafts, you can use the coupon code GLITTER to get 20% off your order.  They're having some great Black Friday deals over at Lifestyle Crafts as well.  40% off all Borders, Boxes and Bags (and you can use the coupon code too)!  You have through Friday to snatch up these deals before they're gone!

In the picture below, you can see several projects that I created using the Knotty and Nice.  You'll see some fabulous ideas for neighbor gifts, some cute treat bags, and even some headbands and hair clips (I cut fabric and felt to create the headbands and clips).  I wove some ribbon through one of the borders to create stunning gift packaging and card accents.

I hope you enjoy today's project.  I'm in full on Christmas mode.  Check out the projects in the picture below and tell me which is your favorite!  I'd love to hear from you.

I created this simple photo ornament (or maybe use it as a gift topper) using both of the Knotty and Nice Gift Set and some nesting circle dies from Lifestyle Crafts.
