Poinsettia Christmas Card

Hello my friends!
I hope everyone enjoyed your Holiday with family and friends. 
This year seemed to pass too quickly for me. I think I will start Christmas really 
early next year. Yeah right! That's what I always say LOL!
Well, wishful thinking!

I needed a Thank You card and found this lovely Poinsettia card from My Scrap Chick

 A really fun and quick card to make.
You can stamp most anything on the front. I used Thank You inside.

The envelope was made with the We R Memory Punch Board.
That has to be the Best envelope maker! 
Quick and easy!
 So fun to make a special envelope for all your cards.

This is the same card but for the base I used white and light green for accent.

Another fun envelope! You can read all about this really cool envelope maker below.
They have  other punch boards including, bags and boxes.

That's it for another day my friends.
I hope that I've inspired you once again.
Wishing everyone  a Happy New Year.
See you in the New Year!

Christmas Gingerbread Snowman Mouse & Smores Magnets

Hello my sweet friends!
I have some special paper piecing magnets to share with you today.
Are you all ready for the Holiday's?
Well, I'm getting

First up is this adorable Gingerbread girl getting me mood for all the cooking that
 needs to be done for the Holiday. Isn't she cute with her spoon and spatula!
She measures 5" x 5".
This darling file is from Too Cute By Jessica below

For the base I made a silhouette and cut 2 of each piece and glued them together. Yes, it took some time, but they are like cardboard and will hold up for a long time. I inked  them with Tim Holtz inks. Then I glued all the pieces on the silhouette or used pop dots and added a magnet to the back.
Decorate your fridge or add to a special package with all these cuties. You can also place them on cards to be used as magnets for a special friend.

Up next is another sweet little Gingerbread girl  from Ka Doodle Bug.
Check all her adorable creations below.

I had fun making this darling snowman and little bird magnet.
He is also cut in a black silhouette background and then pieced layer by layer.
You can get the file over at below

This is another magnet that I made from Treasure box.
 He looks so cute on my fridge.

This will be Free only until Tuesday Dec. 17 so go grab it.

These little Smore's were fun to make. They measure 4" tall  by 4" wide.

That's it my friends for another day.

Have a great weekend!

Silent Night Christmas 3D Church

Hi my crafty friends!
I made this beautiful Christmas Church to share with you today.
Yes, it's all made from paper, gems and glitter.
This is another 3D project from Mary's collection "Silent Night svg kit"
Looks great on my table display and would make a wonderful gift for someone special on your list.

The little chorus boys are very special and Vintage. I happen to win them at an auction a few years back and I simply adore them. 
I thought they looked perfect in front of the Church.
For the Church, I used white glitter card stock and embossed the front panels. Behind the door, I used shinny silver foil paper.
It looks so pretty at night with the tea lights glowing.

This is my very own creation and fit perfectly in front of each window. I made the tree
in Ecal and pieced it together with pop dots. I cut the hearts in different colors and added  gems.
Originally I was going to put a magnet on the back and place them on my fridge, but I needed some greenery around my Church and they were just right.
As soon as I figure out how to pull only the tree file from my saved  Church scut file, I would like to share the Christmas trees with you. If someone knows how, please email me (Typewriter icon) at the top of this post .

This is Mary's lovely Church.

That's it for another day my friends.
Have a wonderful week!

North Pole Express 3D Train

Hello my dear friends!
I hope everyone enjoyed Thanksgiving.
This is my second train that I made from Mary's North Pole Express svg kit.
The link is at the bottom.

For the engine, I used Green, black and white card stock, then added green and red ribbon on top.

The wreath was cut from a  green wooden spiral that I had for a long time and didn't know what I would use it for. Well, it makes a perfect wreath! I added glitter and some red foam balls.
 Topped it with  red twine and a gold bell.

 For the back I found a couple of cute little guys in my stash. The moose is rubber and the teddy bear is made from wood. They look so cute!

I created the Gingerbread man in Ecal and pieced him together when I was making magnets for the fridge. He just had to go for a ride! :) I will be sharing him when I get the time and if you don't see it posted, please email me to remind me:)
The stocking is a rubber ornament that I got I think at Joann's a long time ago.

The gift boxes were cut in white glitter paper from Joann's 12 x 12 paper. 
I cut side panels from a red gift bag.
The little gingerbread man is another rubber ornament.

On the back of the coal car, I used another darling polar bear rubber ornament.

For the windows on the caboose, I used blue plastic from a file folder that I had from Staples.
 It cut just like butter in the Eclips machine. I added snowflake brads to the wheels that I had from Michael's.

For the front of the caboose I used another rubber ornament. The candy cane  ribbon was perfect
for the back and sides of the caboose.

 The pretty bow is made out of red and black paper with an added gem. The red and green lights are plastic ornaments and the package is another rubber ornament.
 What a really fun project for Christmas!
You can get the whole kit by clicking on the link below

That's it my friends for another day.
I hope I've inspired you once again.
Have a wonderful day!

North Pole Express Train

All aboard everyone!!

Hi again my crafty friends!

Today I'm excited to share this cute train set with you.
This is from the "North Pole Express" kit over at Mary & Leo's

Click below for the kit!

This is the Coal car with the tiny gift boxes inside.
Super fun to make!

Of course you need the Caboose car and it's all decked out with stripped paper. The top lid comes off
the Train engine and also the Caboose car in case you would like to put some goodies or add a couple of tea lights. I used clear velum in all the window so they glow at night when you add the lights.
This would be a darling display on any table or under your tree.
 Great for someone that Love's to collect trains or a special gift for someone special on your list.

I hope you enjoyed my train and that I've inspired you once again.
Happy Crafting!

Clara's Christmas Toy Soldier

Hello my friends!
Just peeking in to share this darling Toy Soldier with you.
So fun to make!
I Love Christmas!

I was inspired by Susan's Toy Soldier's.
So cute!

I started out with Mary's "Clara's Christmas kit" using the Nutcracker file. See link below.
As you can tell, I glued his front face panel down too much, showing the open sides. I made this at night and wasn't paying close attention and got carried away with my glue. LOL 
 I created his front red cap in Ecal software, using shapes from the library and welding them together. 
The cap wraps around his hat. Email me if you have any questions and I will be happy to help you if I can.
I will use solid core paper on the next ones, since you can see the white showing in the fold cuts.

This is last years Nutcracker that I made and a couple of Christmas cards from Mary's kits.

 The Nutcracker that I used for my Toy Soldier is from "Clara's Christmas Eve" kit.

The Christmas Tree Card is from the "Christmas Cheer kit"

The Christmas Bicycle Card is from the "Spirits of Christmas Past kit"

Next I created the fringe for the back of his hat and added a silver star.

Side fringe

The leg fringe was also welded and using shapes within Ecal.

I think he turned out so cute and I may make a couple more in different colors. He stands 11" tall.

I hope that I've inspired you today.
That's it for another day my friends.
Have a nice week!
