Christmas Winter Woolies Gift Card Holders Plus FREE Elf Shoe


Hello my dear friends!
It's that time of year to start thinking about gift giving
and the people that you just can't find that special gift for.
These adorable gift cards holders might just be the ticket.
I simply fell in love with this unique collection by Bird over at
birdscards.com 
Click on the link below to get this complete kit.




First up is this amazing scarf that holds a gift card inside. These are
so quick and easy to make for your last minute gift giving.
 Blue seemed just right for this scarf and I added a white pom pom to the center
of each flower, but really its beautiful just as it is. You can use designer papers
or just solid colors to give them a special touch.
Very unique !

Next up is this cute little stocking. I used designer papers and added
a few rhinestones in the center and topped it with a bow.
So fun to make and she has a tutorial video showing step by step
instructions.

Up next is this really pretty sweater/jumper with the nice cutout
pattern across the front. I embossed the collar, arm band and bottom.
You'll never guess what embossing folder I used!!
Yep....Cuttlebug Keyboard Clavier embossing folder did the trick. :)
Who would have thought! I was looking through all my folders
and couldn't find anything until this one popped up. I wasn't really
sure if it would work, so I tried it on a small sample and it looked great.
It really does look like ribbing and nobody will even know that I
used piano keys..... while I sing a happy tune. haha

This is Birds picture showing the inside of the card holder. The
gift card fits perfectly inside. So cute!

This adorable snow woolie hat is very easy to make for someone
special on your list. Just top it off with a glittery pom pom and couple
of gems and you have a winner. Love the poinsettia flower design.


This mitten/glove is sure to please everyone for sure. Again, so fun
and easy to make. Just add some gems and a bow and it's ready to go.

Super cute and unique gift card holder collection!
Make them up ahead of time and just pop your gift card in.
You can make them in so many colors or designs for the Holidays.
Better get started now if you want to beat the rush :)

White Christmas 3D Poinsettia Cards and Tags


Today I started my Christmas cards using the "White Christmas kit"
 This collection is simply Gorgeous.
Everything from beautiful cards and cutout matching Box envelopes
to gift tags all rolled up in one kit.
This is a Must have kit!!

It's starting to look like Christmas around here! Yes, only in my
crafty room though! lol It was near the 100's, so with the air conditioning, apple cinnamon
simmering and Christmas Music box playing, it feels and smells like
I'm ready for the Holiday to start.
I Love the Christmas season!
First up is the simply gorgeous Poinsettia 3d card. This was
so easy and fun to make! I used blue foil paper behind the
delicate white cutout to give it simmer and boy does it
glow. Beautiful card for that special person and truly a
cherished keepsake.


I embossed the blue foil to give it texture and added a
few clear rhinestones and also used white opaque marker
from Martha Stewart between the leaf cutouts for accents.
This is truly an amazing card and one of my favorites. 


It doesn't have the green twig back layer like the rest of the
cards only because it fell off my table and.........

Opps.....guess who got it! lol
Yep, my Katie really enjoyed those green twigs. haha
Look at those puppy dog eyes saying well mom, you
dropped it just for me and it was sooo yummy. lol


Up next is this gold foil and red poinsettia card. I used gold
foil, but you can use most any color foil or cardstock if you
like.

The poinsettia is pop dotted to give it a 3d effect.
So stunning!

This is the first poinsettia card and Box envelope that I made
with all the pearls.
It fits perfectly in the Box and will arrive safely to
your friend or loved ones. 
It's so Gorgeous!!

I glued white pearls and a white oval rhinestone to the center. 

These darling tags are soooo adorable!
The picture doesn't do them justice. They are truly beautiful!
They were so quick and easy to make and
could be used on a card base or even an ornament for your tree.
I love them!!


I'll be making more of these for sure when I show my daughter this weekend.
She asked me to bring some sample Christmas cards. We need to start
making 150 of them for her clients in Berlin, India, Europe and more.
Can you imagine their faces when they open up this unique card.
These are definitely a WOW card!! 


How about some Free Baubles from Bird!!
Here's a large collection of sweet Christmas ornaments for
your crafting pleasure.
Enjoy!

That's it my friends for another day.
I hope that I've inspired you to start your Christmas cards early
this year with these fabulous 3d beauties.
Have a great week!

Autumn Leaves Fall Wreath Thanksgiving Collection


Are you ready for Fall yet?
Yep, they officially announced that it is FALL!
Well, not here in Apple Valley, when the temp reads  in the 90's.
Good thing I have air conditioning on. lol

    Maple Leaf Favor Box  
    Autumn Leaf edged Napkin Ring
    Autumn Leaf edged Candle Cover

Click below to get this kit on special for a limited time.



Today I thought I would make a pretty Fall wreath for my front door.
My neighbors just love seeing what I will display on my door
and windowsills each Holiday. So fun!

Using Birds lovely Maple Leaf  Bunting file from her new kit  "Autumn Leaves"

I used the hanging Maple leaf bunting to create my wreath.
These pretty Maple leaves would make a gorgeous banner for any Fall event or Thanksgiving. 
The best part is that they are soooo easy to assemble.
 I made twelve rather quickly. By the time it cut out I folded and glue it together.
Here's a close up of the Maple Leaf in my wreath. 
My little birdy is eyeing that leaf. haha

You can make these pretty Maple leaves in many colors and use them
in many creations.

The yellow is so stunning and tucked so pretty beneath the fall leaves. 



For the gold patterned leaves I used the leftovers from the cutout Doily below.

This is Birds picture of this lovely doily with the gold leaf napkin ring.

For the doily I thought an orange shadow layer would give mine a bit of color.
The picture doesn't do it justice. It's really prettier in person with the shimmering gold.
The leaves that were left from the cut out were used on my wreath.
They would also be great on a Fall card or page layout.

This is Birds Maple leaf gift box.  
Very pretty and so easy to make.

I made one box a little smaller, using 8.5 x 11 paper.  For the large box, I glued and cut
the left over leaf from the doily, to the top of the existing leaf.
I love how they both turned out and so cute for a small gift for your guest.
These are the cutest little boxes.


How about a FREE svg!!

Ready or not, here they come in all sizes and colors.

The kit is from Birds "Chilled to the Bone kit"

First up is Freddy, a super scarry Skull gift bag for all those candy treats.
I thought he should have clear gems all around his head (Skull) and
of course bright red ones for his eyes. The green inside is embossed with
Bubbles embossing folder by Taylored expressions and I added a black
embossed strip up the sides. To finished him off I twisted a white and black
jumbo chenille and topped it off with a black bow.
This bag was pretty quick and easy to assemble.
Great bags for that special Halloween gathering and would be a great
keepsake for years to come.

Next up is Charming "Sugar" skull bag. I thought I would name her sugar,
since she looks so sweet. lol  The added pink gems and polka dot bow and
pink ribbon make her ready for any party. I embossed the pink inside with Perfect
Paisley by Cuttlebug.
So Charming :)


This Haunted house bag will be sure to please!
It's a FREE svg file from Bird!!!

I had so much fun making this Free card. So quick and easy to make. I
simply added gems and since I don't have any Halloween stamps, I
thought the Welcome home would fit just right for this card. You can
add lots of fun things and have a beautiful card for someone special.

My daughter has been away on business in Berlin and then to Iceland
and would welcome this card when she gets home.
I know She will Love it!!

Harvest Sunset Pumpkin Diorama Box Card & Sunflower & Butterflies


Hey there crafty gals and guys!
It's that time of year again!!!
Yes, I feel the cool brisk air in the early morning now and it's time
for all those pretty leaves to fall all over my backyard. And guess
who gets to rake them up?? Yep, it's me :) I really love the Fall with all
the Pumpkins and the smell of cinnamon brewing in the kitchen.
Fun time of year for sure!

I would like to share this gorgeous Pumpkin diorama box card that I made.

This darling box card is from Mary's "Harvest Sunset kit"
This was all cut out with 8.5" x 11" papers on my Sizzix Eclips cutting
machine and eCal software. I love this machine because its so fun and easy to
 use and cuts perfectly every time.

I inked around the edges of the pumpkin with Tim Holtz inks and embossed the
sides of the box and back with a tiny leaf folder by The Paper Studio. 
This card folds flat for mailing and would make
a very unique card to send to family or a special friend.
Love love this card!!!

This is Mary's picture of her super fabulous box card.
Take a look at the complete kit below!

This is a Must have kit for any true crafter!
Look at that large pumpkin!!! It's sooo perfect and the wagon
is adorable!
I'll be crafting them all soon for sure.
Click on the link below to get this kit FREE with purchase.


Next up is this Gorgeous Gorgeous Gorgeous Sunflower and Butterfly.

Yes this Sunflower is also included in the Harvest Sunset kit!
I bet you think, wow what a lot of work this was, but actually it
was sooo simple and quick to make. Unlike flowers that you have
to glue each petal on, this one is unique for it has only three
full circles of petals that are attached already. The middle is quite easy to
assemble with Mary's tutorial. The fun part was mixing all the pretty
glitters around the center. Just add tacky glue and sprinkle as many layers
as you like. Small, chunky or fine glitter and any colors will do.
This is a WOW Sunflower when you finish.
Great for a table display or
watch Mary's video to make it into this beautiful wreath for your door.
Gorgeous!

This is Mary's Sunflower attached to her pretty bag. Yes the bag
is also included in her kit.

The Butterfly I added to my Sunflower is
from Mary's "Breezy Meadow Butterflies"

This is the whole collection of Butterflies.
I've made many of these into magnets or with clips.
Beautiful!
