This is a recycled Laughing cow cheese container, decorated using Club Scraps Shades of Winter collection. Inside is a mini album made using doily's and ribbon. and in the photo below you can see 2 of the design papers I chose to use today.

Club Scrap December Artist Team Challenge

Hello everyone, and welcome to Club Scraps December Artist Team Challenge! This month the December Challenge was to choose from some different challenges on the Club Scrap Forum found here. I chose a couple of different challenges for my 3 items today. Hope you enjoy them, as I truly enjoyed creating each one :)

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 snowflakes used are from Club ScrapsShades of Winter collection", I also used the one Ribbon on the card from this collection as well.
1st up is my Fancy Doily Fold Card.(Made for Club Scraps Tool & Stash Challenge using liquid glitter)
I created my card using 4 doily's cut out of the shades of winter ivory pattern card stock. Next I cut the circles out of another design paper in this beautiful collection. All the design papers are from the Shades of Winter Deluxe Kit. I did use Cheery Lynn die's to cut out my doily, circle, frame, oval, and flowers. The Beautiful sentiment stamp used is from the Shades of winter kit as well. Lastly I embellished using white half backed dots, covered in stickles glitter, and then the metal tree charm(from Shades of Winter) and the ribbon also from the kit.

2nd up is my
White Christmas Doily Tag: Designed for the Non-Traditional Christmas Technique Challenge (use non traditional Christmas colors, and glitz)
I did just that on this tag. My tag was designed with 2 doilies, circle, bells, holly, and berries, all cut out using the Shades of Winter Collection. For the glitz I used stickles on the berries and then the glitzy snowflakes that came with this beautiful collection. I have to say this is another of my FAVORITE kits by Club Scrap!

3rd is my Snowman tag:
Lastly my snowman tag, that is going on my daughters gift :)
He was designed for the Tool & Stash Challenge too (Use Liquid glitter)
I designed him using 3 circles from Cheery Lynn dies. The hat was designed using SU! punch and then cutting a square and using a corner rounder on the top of it. Next I punched branches using Martha Stewart branch punch, this brown card stock came from the Christmas Thyme Collection. all other design papers on the snowman came from Shades of Winter Deluxe Kit He needed some Glitze so I did just that on his hat. I added stickles to the green branches and then the berries were made using a burgundy stickles. His eyes were done using Viva pearl pen, and his nose I cut by hand. super fun and super cute tag I must say. Now on the bottom of him I did add more stickles to give some glitz to him as well. I did add it to the braches that are part of the dp pattern. I should have made 3 of these, and might have to make a couple more for gifts. I love how they are so big, and you can add your writing to the back. perfect for large gifts I say!

I hope you enjoyed my post for today, and all my projects, as I had fun designing each and every one of them! Please let me know what you think as I always enjoy reading your wonderful comments!
Thank you so much for joining us and stopping by!!!

Shades of Winter Doily Tags

Good Morning Crafty Friends!!!
Today I have 2 Doily Tags I created for Club Scrap & Cheery Lynn Designs, using the Beautiful Shades of Winter Collection, and an assortment of Cheery Lynn's Beautiful and fancy dies. These ar perfect for adding to your Christmas gifts, and I will be making more of these to add to ours. Speaking of Christmas its hard to believe its almost here! YIKES! I have been busy trying to get our home decorated and completed that today :) I decorated 3 floors, 2 bathrooms and the laundry room.....heheheheehe My bathroom I left plain, maybe next year I will decorate it :) Anyways onto my tags.
 Christmas Cheer Tag:
I started off by cutting the Cheery Lynn Sophia's Heart Doily (LOVE THIS)out with Club Scrap white boughs from shades of winter collection the Deluxe Kit, then cut out Horizon Circle Doily die DL272 in a shimmer sand color text weight card stock. Next cut was the design paper cut using LPC4 Circle Pierced die. Layered on that is also the CAS07 Ornament #7 die cut out in the same design paper,it is hard to see in this photo, but in person looks so pretty.

Cheery Lynn Christmas Bell:
was cut using the coordinating white boughs design paper, It was pretty enough, that I did not distress it, or do anything to it, but add 2 pearls, a bow, flowers and wreath branches.

Cheery Lynn B435 Tea Rose Small Flower
I cut this flower out using another design paper from the same Shades of Winter Deluxe kit , I absolutely LOVE this kit and all the papers in it. This shade is a real pale design, hard to see, in the photo, but I love it in person!, Next I cut out Cheery Lynns B21 Wreath Strip(for branches) in the coordinating shimmer sand paper., I did add a sheer bow  underneath my rose cluster created using the fibers from the deluxe kit, but also can be found in the fibers collection too. .
 Floral Cluster Tag:
All design papers used are from the
Club Scrap December Shades of Winter Collection:
all items listed below
Text weight shimmer sand
White Boughs print
design paper print
Ivory pattern print
Sheer Ribbon

This tag was cut using Sophia's Heart Doily die, and cut out with he same 3 design papers as listed above. The only difference is I wanted you to be able t see most of the Sophia doily on this tag. So with that being said, I cut a smaller Horizon Circle Boutique Doily for the center, and a small circle.

Layer for the cluster starts with the string, and bow. Next comes the Medium tea rose, I used 3, and on these I used 2 different inks to achieve the color I wanted.(Faded Jeans & Dusty Concord distress inks), I then hot glued them to the cluster, with the leaves, and wreath branches already attached. makes it easier this way, instead of trying to tuck them under after. Next I added in 3 of the small tea rose flowers, and added some vintage pearls to the centers of all. Super fun and easy to do!

Christmas Thyme with Club Scrap

 Hello everyone, Today I'm sharing my Beautiful card created using Club Scraps Christmas Thyme Collection. I Absolutely LOVE this collection of Beautiful Design papers and card stock, and my Favorite design paper in this collection is this one used on my card here.
 I chose to make some Cheery Lynn Poinsettia's out of the wine colored card stock, and the other brownish, wine colored one as well. I ran my die through the machine 1 time for each color, glued them together, and then added some of the green card stock for the leaves.

 Now for Club Scraps Tool and Stash Challenge this month is to use some sort of Sparkle (Liquid Glitter) on your card or project. I chose Stickles in a green for the leaves, and a darker green for the wreath on the door. I also used red stickles on the berries under the windows.
My card was created using the green card stock that comes in this collection, the wine colored card stock, and the 1 sheet of design paper for this card.  My card does measure 5 3/4" x 5 3/4"

The Merry Christmas banner is from AC and was from my stash.

Christmas present tag measures 5 1/2" x 5 1/2"
My tag was designed using Cheery Lynns DL184 Sophia's Heart Doily. Then I added a Cheery Lynn Circle (LPC4 ) to the back, set aside to dry, and worked on my 2flowers.
were cut using Cheery Lynns Medium and Small Rose dies. I ran them through just once each,a nd they made these 2 gorgeous flowers. The card stock I used is Bazzills White Wedding Butterfly paper. I then hot glued them together, added a Really Reasonable Ribbon Pearl (8mm & 10mm) to the center of both. Next I used Really Reasonable Ribbons Leaves, these are tiny. The branches were cut using the Wreath branch die from Cheery Lynn as well. I cut them in white and green.
were were made using Really Reasonable Ribbons Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon that is in this months ribbon club. I made one big bow, and one small bow to put around the small sentiment tag.

My sentiment is from The Project Bin and is Luke 2 stamp set, and was stamped using the Mini Misti tool and coloring with 3 different shades of SU! markers. The tag is the Mirror tag from Cheery Lynn.

Christmas Wishes Candy Pocket Tags

 Hello everyone, and Happy Friday to you all! Today I wanted to share 5 of 14 tags I created using the BEAUTIFUL Cheery Lynn Designs Dies. I had a blast making these, and created them to bring to our Doll Club Christmas Party, and everyone LOVED them!!! :)
 Of course I had to use the Beautiful Christmas Poinsettia Strip die from Cheery Lynn to create my Gorgeous flowers. They were cut using a striped metallic and regular dp print. I also did my favorite Glass Flower technique on these, as it makes them sturdy and beautiful :)  I love using the wreath strip die, as it cuts the perfect amount for each pocket tag, and that was 7.
 Cheery Lynn Designs Dies Used:
Cheery Lynn wreath strip 7 piece die set B216
Cheery Lynn Poinsettia strip B324
Cheery Lynn Christmas Bell 7 Piece B846
Cheery Lynn Pierced Stacker 3 XL21
Cheery Lynn Mirror CABD-74
Cheery Lynn Designs Oval Classic SM silver Stacker Layers 8

Really Reasonable Ribbon Embellishments & Shimmer Satin Ribbon used!

Craft-Dee Bowz/Anything goes with a handmade bow
Crafty Boots/Christmas
 To create my tags I started with Cheery Lynn's Pierced Stacker 3 XL21 using the largest die in this set for the main tag and dp. If you are creating 5 tags you would need to cut 8 greens to give you 5 entire ones, and then cut the others in half to create the pocket, leaving 1 half leftover. Dp pieces were cut using the same die. be sure to add your design paper before adding your pocket.

Next I cut my tag, oval , poinsettia's , holly, and wreath branches and had them all prepped and ready to decorated my pocket. you can also use ric rac, or trip or whatever to border the pocket , and then ribbon to embellish with a bow. I did add some half backed pearls to my flowers too. For these 5 Pocket tags I did add some vintage ric rac to the pocket. On the Oval Classic it was cut in white, stamped sentiment in black, and then added some red dots around the edges.

I really had a lot of fun decorating these up, and adding some fun Christmas candy to each one. The pockets were easy and came together quickly. Love using Cheery Lynn dies as they make for some beautiful crafts!!! 

 I hope you enjoyed my post for today, as I truly enjoyed sharing! Thank you so much for looking!!!

A Hug for Rudolph /Candy Pocket Tag

 Hello everyone and Happy Wednesday to all!
Today I have a Candy Tag I made using I Brake For stamps darling " A Hug For Rudolph" Stamp. I absolutely LOVE making these tags, as they are super fun and easy to create! Perfect for giving as a little gift to a neighbor,  party favor, or for your co-workers.
My image was stamped up in black ink, and then cut out using the oval shape die. Next I airbrushed the background using copic marker. For Rudolph and the sweet little girl I colored them with copics and then used some stickles to give some glitz. I also added stickles to the snowflakes, as you can see they haven't dried yet :) hehehehe

My tag was created using several Cheery Lynn dies, and then added candy to the inside pocket. I made a bunch of candy tags to bring with me to our Christmas Doll club party that is tomorrow :) They are a little different .

The glitzy trim along the pocket is from my stash and is super OLD! Now the ribbon for the tag and bow  is called Chevron  Striped Twill Red and is from Really Reasonable Ribbon, and is one of my many favorites.
