Shabby Chic Gingerbread Houses

This is such a pretty Spellbinders die.  I used it to create these shabby chic gingerbread houses and I just love the end result.  

Tiny Christmas Tags!!!

Boy, do I love these adorable tiny tags.  These were so much fun to make.  I was able to make them using my punches and a retired Sizzix mitten die.  These are going to be so much fun to share and use on packages.  I am having a ball getting ahead this year with my Christmas crafting.  


I had so much fun creating gingerbread people the other day.  I actually ended up with an entire basket full.   I used an old Sizzix die to create these adorable gingerbread people.  I got my inspiration from Jill Norwood and Pinterest.  Go over to Jill Norwood on YT and check out her awesome card and tag videos.  Lots of inspiration can be found on her channel.

I think this year I will have enough tags and cards ready to share with family and friend.  What kinds of Christmas projects are you working on?

Hi everyone!  I just wanted to post the adorable snowman tags that I created.  For these tags I was able to use several of my stamp sets.  The snowman is a Sizzix set and the tree is from a Lawn Fawn set (Critters in the Woods) and the little birdie is from a different Lawn Fawn (Hippo Birthday).  It was really fun creating these, but after putting together 20 sets, I was really over it.  These are the few that I had leftover.  The rest of the tags are being enjoyed by others.  
It really is fun getting a bit of a head start on Christmas projects.  I still have a few more dies out on my table  that I would like to use to make tags.   I really enjoy crafting for Christmas and probably could do it everyday.  I hope you like these tags.  Leave a comment and thanks so much for stopping by my blog.

WARM WINTER WISHES (Christmas is Coming Series!)

Well, I guess my Christmas card making has begun.  I wanted to share another shabby chic card with you today.  I used my Sizzix die "Kids and Sled" to create this sweet card.  I wanted to keep it pretty simple, so I just added a few embellishments and lots of glitter.  I can't help myself when it comes to glittering up my shabby Christmas cards.  I don't use it as much when I create cards using more traditional colors.  You can never have too much glitter right?  I hope you  like it and leave a comment here for me.  I will be having a little giveaway soon, so please follow so that you don't miss a chance to win.

Christmas in July

Every year I promise myself that I will not wait until December to start making Christmas cards.  Yet, every year I find myself at the last minute trying to scramble to make a few special cards and tags for the holiday.  Well, the other day after watching Jill Norwoods' video showing a batch of her Christmas tags for this year, I decided to follow suit and make a few.  I'll put the link to Jill's video down below.  Here are the cards that I created.

I had all intentions of making tags, but ended up with cards.  I do like that way they turned out and can't wait to make more.  
For these two cards, I used Sizzix deer die that coordinates with a Basic Grey paper line.  I also love using glitter on my Christmas cards, so I had lots of fun glittering up these cards.  I hope you like them.  Please leave a comment and thanks so much for stopping by my blog.
