Hello everyone, and Happy Friday to all! Today's card was designed for Really Reasonable Ribbons Winter/Holiday Challenge, and for The Project Bin Stamps. Currently I have been super busy trying to get my house decorated for Christmas, this in itself takes me days to do....hehehehe Also I have been trying to get several sewing projects done as well. CRAZY!!! hehehehe

So for my card base I chose white, and all layers white with designs from Recollections "Jingle Bell" paper stack. Love all the designs in this assortment.
My sentiment is The Project Bins "Maybe Christmas" Stamp set. I did use the Mini Misti to stamp up my sentiment. Love how you can color in all the wording and images several times with this tool. FUN!!!!
All dies are from Cheery Lynn Designs! Of course I had to use my FAVORITE flower die, its the poinsettia one :) LOVE this!!!
Embellished with Really Reasonable Ribbon's Chevron print, and the sweet little 10mm Mix Color Resin Flower w/Rhinestones, these are so CUTE!!! I LOVE all the new embellishments from Really Reasonable Ribbon. I also used a big flat backed pearl, its the largest one from RRR.
Sewing is all done in a white thread.
Hope you will join us for this super fun challenge, and its the perfect time to get some more of your Christmas cards done for this year.

Thank you for looking!!
Hugs to all,

A Christmas Kiss

 Hello everyone, and Happy Thursday!!
Today I have another Tag I created for gifts this year. On this tag I used I Brake For Stamps "A Christmas Kiss" stamp, and colored it with copic markers. I figured why not make my own. So I have been busy creating for at least 1 gift per person. I think these will be darling on the packages :) These tags are pretty big, most measure about 4 3/4" x 5" I think this one is 4 3/4" x 4 3/4".
 I love this sweet image, I thought it was too cute! I did enjoy coloring it up and then added some stickles for the glitz on this one. I Brake for Stamps has soooo many darling Christmas stamps, it makes me want them all....hehehehehe

I used all Cheery Lynn die cuts for cutting out my layers, and then added a sticker for the Merry Christmas, but I did punch it out with SU! punches. The Poinsettia is cheery lynn, and the little gems are studio calico. I added some  Really Reasonable Ribbons and then some glitter. Super fun and easy to make tags. So far I think I have made 6 different big tags :) and I still have more to make :)
Thank you so much for looking and have a lovely day!!
Hugs to all,

2 photo mattes

Photo Mattes- I added some of the Washi Tape that came in this collection to each side of the photo mattes.
Flowers i cut using some of the card stock in green design , orange design, pink, and blue card stock sheets from Paradise kit. I didn't do any distressing, just glued the flowers together and set them back where I had them on my layout. After drying I added some RRR Pearls to the centers.

Cheery Lynn Christmas Tags

Hello everyone and Happy Monday to all! Today I have a couple of tags to share with you. I have been busy trying to create tags to put on our gifts this year, and Cheery Lynn Dies work Perfectly for this :) I LOVE the BIG dies I used here, and the beautiful shape. I will be writing on the back of these To: and From: , I could have stamped that, but hey I will just write :) hehehehe

Tags measures -5" x 3 3/4"

I LOVE using this Cheery Lynn Poinsettia Strip to create the Poinsettia's on both tags. This strip makes cutting super easy, as the strip has enough to create 3 flowers in one single run through your die cut machine, gotta LOVE that! On these I did used a gingham print dp and my Glass flower technique. Love how the flowers turn out and how they stay so perfect. In the centers I used some gems.

Now on this tag I used the Poinsettia die cutting out a different pattern paper almost makes them look like candy cane :) hehehehe
Cheery Lynn Dies Used:
Tag base was cut using Cheery Lynn Designs Pierced Stacker #2 XL-20 die
Also used Cheery Lynn's Oval Classic SM Silver Stacker Layers 8 for the ovals on my tags
Cheery Lynn Christmas Bell B846 die for the Holly Leaves and branches
Cheery Lynn Quadrafoil Tag B682
Ribbons are from Really Reasonable Ribbon. I also used the Cabochon from RRR and all Foam tabs.
AllSorts Challenge/Anything Christmas
Crafty Catz/Christmas Tags

I am actually going to use these for all the large quilts I am making for Christmas gifts this year. Ha! I just learned how to quilt, and I am on my 4th one.  I think these would be perfect for large gifts :) but I will be writing a little note on the back and tie it to the quilt on the inside of the package . Might have to make some smaller ones for the top of the gift :) or some that are this size, not sure yet :) we shall see!

I hope you enjoyed my post for today, please do leave a comment letting me know what you think of my tags :)
Have a lovely day!
Hugs to all,

Happy Thanksgiving to all!

Hello everyone, and Happy Thanksgiving to all!
I hope you all are enjoying this day with your family and friends!! Today I am busy with decorating our table, and prepping the turkey. We will have our family over, it should be a blessed day for sure!

Today I have a card i wanted to share with you all, this one was designed for Club Scrap(using their Beautiful Literature Collection) & Really Reasonable Ribbon (using Really Reasonable Ribbons BEAUTIFUL embellishments and Ribbons) ! I also used the beautiful stamp from The Project Bin!

 I used the Beautiful Antique Charm Leaf embellishment for the Leaves on my Poinsettia flowers(Cheery Lynn Dies). I LOVE these, as they are absolutely beautiful in person, and make a perfect addition to any of your paper flowers, or mulberry ones too. Now for the centers of my floewrs I used RRR  White Flat Backed Pearls in the 2 smaller sizes. I believe they are the 8mm and 10 mm

The Ribbons I used for my bow are the Red Shimmer Satin for the bottom bow, and then the Turftan Brown Delicate Stitched for the top bow.

For my sentiment I used The Project Bin Autumns Calling set, and used Mini Misti tool to stamp it up. I did use markers in 2 different reds to get the Ombre look here.

All the BEAUTIFUL design papers and card stock are from Club Scrap. I used all the Literature Club Kit on this card for today.

The doily is from Cheery Lynn and is called Sophia's Heart Die DL184 this die is gorgeous! I did cut it out using the beautiful Club Scrap Brown shimmer card stock. LOVE this!!!

I absolutely had a lot of fun creating my card for today!

Thank you for stopping by and have a blessed Thanksgiving to all!
Happy Thanksgiving to all!!!

A Hug for Rudolph

 Hello everyone and Happy Wednesday to you all!
I have to say this was a super fun tag to create using the DARLING I Brake For Stamps image called "A Hug for Rudolph". What a super cute stamp this is! I had fun coloring it up using copics and then some stickles for some glitz.

Tag was super easy to to make. I cut out all my die pieces(Cheery Lynn dies) and used foam tabs to pop them up. Next I stamped my image on white card stock and then cut it out using a cheery lynn circle die, and then airbrushed,a nd colored it up. My Really Reasonable Ribbon bow was created and then hot glued on along with the poinsettia sticker embellishment. I wanted a quick tag as we were getting ready to head out of town :) And this one I think turned out super sweet!!!

I hope you enjoyed my post for today!! Thank you for stopping by, and hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
hugs to all,

Club Scrap November Artist Team Challenge

 Hello everyone, and welcome to Club Scraps November Artist Team Challenge! The November Challenge is to use at least one stamp image or sentiment from either Girlfriends or Enchanted Forest (or both) AND at least one Sparkle Sticker on your layouts, cards or other projects.. LOVE these darling stamps, so I chose to use Enchanted forest as I felt it went perfect with the Literature Kit :)

Now you should have arrived from Josette's Blog , however if you did not come from there, you might want to start at the beginning with Karen's Club Scrap blog that way you wont miss anything. All design paper, card stock, Stamps, and Ribbon used are from The Club Scrap Literature Kit.
 So for my Layout today, I chose to use the DARLING stamps from the Enchanted Forest Unmounted Club Scrap stamp set! I think it went perfect with the Literature club Kit. I stamped the fairy in te forest on the bottom lefthand corner. I then chose to stamp the darling mice on one of the photo matts. For the top and title of my page, i chose to use the ONCE Upon a Time stamp. All stamps were samped in a brown ink.

 Flowers were cut using Club Scrap Literature print card stock. LOVE this beautiful print. I cut each flower out using Cheery Lynns Poinsettia Strip die. I then used the glass flower technique on these. I also added some Glitter brads to the center of each poinsettia. The branches were cut out using MS punch.

Big Bows- were made uing Really Reasonable Ribbons Shimmer satin. I did add flowers to each one.

Doily Die was cut out using Cheery Lynns Sophia's Heart Die - DL184  the literature design paper and then distressed. I figure i would do some layering under the Photo Matte areas.

Bling- we were challenge to use at least 1 of the Sparkle Sticker on our project for today. Well I chos 4 for all the corners on my layout.

 I have to say I absolutely LOVE this darling Kit, and Its one of my favorites to date! The papers in person are so beautiful, and the prints on them i love. Also love the print that is on the Poinsettia's is so Gorgeous!!! I will be adding this layout to a large album i will be creating once i have enough layouts made. It will be a Large Mini album.....hehehehe
