2014 In Review

As this year comes to end I thought I would join in in sharing my favorite projects from 2014.

I have been blessed to part of some wonderful design teams and many opportunities to use their fabulous products.

I hope you enjoy my year in review.

Links to the original posts are included.




I adored this release from Peachy Keen Stamps and had to share 2 of my favorites!










There you have it! A few of my favorites!

I want to thank you all for following me this past year!

Have a very Happy and Blessed 2015!

Poinsettia Gift Set with My Craft Spot and My Scrap Chick

Hi there! Today I am sharing this beautiful gift set over on the My Craft Spot Blog.

I made 3 of these sets for my niece. She wanted some pretty packaging for her teachers' gifts.

I used some cut files from My Scrap Chick called Poinsettia Christmas Card and Sunflower Greetings and combined the two. I used stamps from My Craft Spot to add the perfect touch.

My Tag was stamped with the Tiny Tags Christmas stamp set.

I used a stamp from Merry & Bright for the inside of my gift card.

I think everything came together beautifully and I know my niece was happy.

Christmas Gift Cards for PKS Face Day

Hi there!

Today it is my day to share a Peachy Keen Stamps Face Day Project on the Peachy Keen Stamps Blog!

I know many of you, like me, have probably bought a few gift cards to give as holiday gifts this season. Gift cards are an easy gift but don't seem to have the same impact as other gifts because there isn't much to unwrap. So, I like to create gift card holders for my gift cards.

Of course, if you add Peachy Keen Stamps you have really brought them up a few notches.

Check these cuties out!

The gift card holder itself is just a 6x8" piece of cardstock that I scored at 3" on the 6' side and 4" on the 8" sided and folded. I cut away a portion on the inside and glued it down the center to creat a pocket for the gift card.

Here is what it looks like on the inside:

The fun part was decorating the outside.

For my cute faces I used a cut file from My Scrap Chick called Sweet Winter Faces. Ech one has a different Peachy Keen Stamp Face.

I love PKS PK-1445 Happy Snow Couples Face Assortment. I colored the cute snowman's face in with Copic Markers and added a sentiment from PK-859 Christmas Greeting Words

My penguins face is from PK-1448 Happy Penguin Couples 1 1/8" Faces and the sentiment is from PKSC-31 July 2014.

This cute ginger's face is from an oldie but a goodie set. PK-560 Dolly Dumplins Face Assortment was perfect for this ginger! The sentiment is from PKSC-31 July 2014.

I had a lot of fun putting these guys together and hope I've provided a bit of inspiration to you, too!

I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and Blessed New Year!

Merry and Bright! ~ My Craft Spot Challenge

Hi there! I am back today to share a card I created for this week's challenge at My Craft Spot.

The challenge:
Create a Christmas Shaped Card

I used a cute file from Miss Kate Cuttables called Christmas Wreath. I created a shadow around to create the base of the card.  This is sized at 5.5".

For the ornaments I added some Stickles in Xmas Red, Lime Green, and Yellow and topped that with Glossy Accents for a bit of dimension.

My sentiment is from My Craft Spot's Merry Bright set. Love this beautiful stamp set!

You can find this set, as well as, many others in the My Craft Spot Shop.

Head on over the My Craft Spot Blog to get all of the challenge details!
