Good morning! I hope you’re having a good week. I’ve had a busy one making Christmas cards that were requested by family members. As soon as I finish those I can start making my own to send out. I’m sure most of you have been busy with the same. But I’m having a great time in my craft room amongst my patterned papers, glitter, stamps and Cricut!

Today I would like to share with you my Design Team card for Cricut Cardz Challenge #54. The challenge this week is to make a circle shaped Christmas card using any cartridges you would like but no red or green.


Nothing say's winter like a Giant glittery snowflake!


I think this snowflake is gorgeous.


I’m really happy with how my card turned out. I think it’s really pretty and wintery. I’ve been doing a lot of emboss resist lately and loving it! I hope you can join us over at Cricut Cardz Challenge this week! I would love to see what you come up with for this challenge. Thank you so much for stopping by and I appreciate your comments.

Hello and welcome to the Advent Calendar Blog Hop!!! I’m so happy that you are hopping with us. First things first, if you came here from Michelle’s blog then you are in the right spot. If you landed here by chance and want to play along or need to get back to the beginning of the hop, please start here at Angelica’s blog. If this is your first time to, I want to say welcome and I hope you find my blog inspiring.

Let’s get started! I’m thrilled to be part of another Hop hosted by the sweet and talented Ruthie.  This Hop includes 16 awesome ladies. I’m excited to be included in this group of talented paper crafters. Thank you Ruthie for hosting another amazing Hop!

This is my first time making an Advent Calender so I was really looking forward to this project. I decided to challenge myself to not use my Cricut. I wanted this Advent Calendar to be something that anyone could put together with minimal supplies. So I got out my Christmas patterned paper stacks, punches, strands of beads, glitter, one very cute set of Lawn Fawn stamps and my hot glue gun. Then I went to town! Click photo’s to see a bigger picture.

2010 Advent Calendar

Each cone is made from a 5x5 piece of patterned paper.

The tissue paper is hand stamped with a peppermint stamp from Sassafras. The cute animals are from the Lawn Fawn, Critters in the Snow stamp set.

I decided to use my circle punch since almost everyone has one in their craft supplies.

The cones are hung with clothes pins that I glittered. The red flower on cone 25 was made by my good friend Susan (suziecrafter).

I hope you liked my Advent Calender. It was a lot of fun to make and I think it looks very festive hanging on my fireplace. Now I just need to get some goodies to put inside the cones. At the bottom of the post I listed the products I used to embellish my Calendar. Whether you keep it simple or embellish it to max, I think it will look amazing. The most important things to me are that all ages can help make it, you don’t need a lot of supplies and of course that you have fun!

Thank you so much for hopping with us today! Before I send you off to your next stop. I have some Blog Candy!!! I apologize for not have a photo of it. But the Blog Candy is a collection of holiday stamped images (which I can stamp in your choice of Black StazOn or Tuxedo Black Memento ink, 20  5×5 sheets of Christmas patterned papers, fibers and some other goodies.

Good morning! Brrr, it’s a cold morning here in Oregon. We had a bit of snow on Tuesday.  It was pretty but didn’t last long. How’s the weather where you are?

Today I would like to share with you my Design Team card for Cricut Cardz Challenge #52. This weeks challenge is to make a Christmas card using words. No images! You can use any cartridges and colors you’d like. It was a great challenge and I’m lovin’ how my card turned out. Join the fun and give this challenge a try.  You may be the lucky winner and be entered into the grand prize drawing for November!

Holiday red really makes this card pop!

Some glitter & a bow make for a quick & festive card!

The card measures 5 x 7 and is covered with patterned paper from the DCWV Christmas Combo Stack. I cut two 1/4 inch strips of green cardstock and covered them with green craft glitter. I cut “Happy Christmas” with the Christmas solutions cart. Next I adhered all elements to the card then attached a red bow with crystal effects.

Thank you so much for coming by and checking out my card. I can’t wait to see what you come up with for this challenge! If you have any questions, please let me know.

Before you leave, don’t forget… this Saturday is the Advent Calendar Blog Hop hosted by Ruthie. Please join the fun and get inspired by 15 super talented ladies!! It will be lots of fun and of course blog candy at every stop! Hope to see you there!

Hi! I hope you’re all having a good Monday evening. I wanted to share the card I made for Mary’s challenge at CardzTv. The challenge is to make a card without using your die cutting machines! So I broke out my Halloween papers and got to work!

Here is what I came up with. For details on this card please visit my YouTube page by clicking here. Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by my Blog and YouTube page. Hugs!

I also wanted to sneak in a BIG thank you to my boyfriend Kris for drawing my Avatar. You can see her in my blog header.  He is also working on a new blog header for me. Thank you so much, I love it!!!

I love the Bo Bunny Whoo-ligan's paper!

Distressed and inked edges are the perfect touch for Halloween cards.

Glittered bats in flight embellish the bottom of the card.

Good morning! I hope everyone is having a fabulous time hopping! I would like to say welcome and thank you for participating in the Fall Blog Hop! We are excited to have you play along today. If you landed here from Chris’s blog then you are in the right spot. If you just came across my blog and want to play along or if you lose your place, below is a list of all the blogs in the hop.

My project is a Vellum Tea Light Topper. This is my original idea and I’m super excited to share this with you. I think this project is great for adults and kids. We are using a battery operated flameless candle. So this would be safe for kids to display in their rooms. I also think this would look beautiful on a fireplace mantel, end table, night stand, your desk at work or even as part of your table setting for the holidays. It’s really versatile and can be changed up for any holiday or season.

Everyone love's Blog Candy!!! 🙂

Be sure to leave a comment for a chance to win the Blog Candy! Ok, now it’s time for you to hop on over to Joy’s blog and check out her awesome Fall project! And I’m going to get ready to watch some Oregon football!! GOOO DUCKS!!!
