Guest Designer at Jaded Blossom!!

Hello Everyone! 

I hope you all had a Merry Christmas!

I am absolutely giddy to be a guest designer today for Jaded Blossom! Thank you Michelle and Candace for allowing me to be apart of Jaded Blossom's First Birthday Celebration! 

For my project today, I decided to make a Christmas ornament for my Mother's red & white Christmas tree (her birthday is tomorrow!). 

I heat embossed the Jaded Blossom stamp, Noel, from their Christmas Wishes set as the 
center focal point on both sides of the ornament. The base of this ornament is a smooth styrofoam ball. 
I folded 2.5" pieces of ribbon and "quilted" them around the Noel.

Once the both sides of the "quilting" is done, I wrapped a folded and glued piece of the white ribbon around to hide the "seam". Topped off with some pretty ribbon, a ribbon to hang it with and it's all done!

Have a great day and thanks for looking!

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas Everyone!

I hope everyone out there is having a Merry Christmas! So far, we've had a pretty good holiday. My mother-in-paw is up from Florida and we've been spending some time with my family.

When I saw the 3D Santa Christmas Box Tote on the Silhouette Store (It's by Lori Whitlock), I knew I had to make it to put my cousin's daughter's Christmas present in. 

I used red, white, black, yellow, and green paper from my stash. I added some stickles to the holly, Santa's buckle, and on Santa's hat. 

I made a quick tag using another one of Lori Whitlock's files "Christmas Tags" from the Silhouette store. The Merry Christmas stamp is from Jaded Blossom's set Christmas Wishes. I added a couple of snowflakes I punched out of some paper from my stash and tied it all to the bag with some ribbon.

Have a great day!

Santa Christmas Card

With all of the hustle and bustle this month, I have finally had the time to sit down and 
play with paper! I was so happy!

I made a card for my husband's Granny and Pap-Pap. 

Pap-Pap collects Santa's, so when I saw the Santa Card 
from SVG Cuts file Christmas Open House SVG Kit, I knew I had to get it! 

The paper I used to make this card came out of my stash. 

The holly on Santa's Hat is an embellishment from a discontinued 
Martha Stewart Crafts sticker set called Traditional Holly & Sprig Stickers.
I've had them in my stash for about 3 years.

For the Merry Christmas embellishment, I used Jaded Blossom's Flag Dies and the 
Merry Christmas is from their stamp set, Christmas Wishes. I finished it off with a little green bling 
and folded the flag into shape and curled the edges.

Now, since my desk is still covered in crafty goodness, I think I shall play some more! 
Have a great day!

Got my wreath done!

I've had some medical issues this week, so between doctor's appointments and finals, time hasn't been on my side for crafting.

I got my wreath done! I'm happy to have at least had that much time to play.
