Gift Cards Boring??? I say not!

Sometimes the best gift is either money or a gift card, but this seems so boring...nothing to unwrap. Well not any more!!

Using the Fuse It Tool and the 4x6 Pockets from We R Memory Keepers, you can create shake it surprises for those favourite people on your Christmas List.

 It all started with the Tim Holtz Crazy Bird Stamps, Dies and Accessories Stamp and Dies.  I colored these little bad boys/girls in, cut them out.





Then I pasted them on the top of the photo sleeves, stuffed them with either the Gift Card or Money and added sequins, other loose embellishments and fused them together. I then added an eyelet and string so they can be hung on the tree.





 Please support your LSS this holiday season!

Winter Wonderland

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...at least where I live! Drive 10mins away and it's spring again.

Each scene is lit up at night is gives me the feeling of days gone by.

We tried to use all nature products this year and was even able to include a few made by my dad.

Christmas Card Series: Card Six

This is the last blog post in this series featuring Carta Bella's Winter Wonderland Collection. (Card 1, 2, 3, 4 & 5 in previous post)

I also used a variety of die cuts from thin wafer dies, added a lot of stitching and a variety of texture elements such as UTEE, hemp and cheese cloth.

I love the thickness of their paper and the colors are amazing. Hope these samples inspire you to create!
