Snow Family Card

Monday, December 9th, 2013

If you are in all of this bad weather like I am, then you’re going to feel like a snow family, so why not make a Snow Family Card to celebrate (and get through) your cabin fever!? I can’t wait until our ice/snow melts and I can venture outside again without being scared that I’ll fall and break something. I hope you are all safe as we get on with our delightful holiday season!

This card is super fun to make! You have stamps. You have coloring (a personal fav). You have sequins. What more can you ask for, right? I used the adorable Kaisercraft Gingerbread paper for this card and I love the holiday colors! I  also love that it’s double sided because I wanted the inside of my card to be cute too! The snow family stamp by Deep Red Stamps is too adorable not to have this holiday season. Maybe it’s just me, but connecting little packs of snow couldn’t have turned out more adorable than this stamp! Just stamp, color, and cut out. Next I embossed a piece of white paper just to give it some snowy texture, put the card together and then added some adorable Teresa Collins’ sequins. I never thought I would use sequins on a card, but it is sooo cute! I used scor-tape to stick them on, but I would advise to use some liquid or hot glue to make them stick a little better.

Like I said before, I wanted the inside of the card to have some aestheticism too, so I used the Spellbinders‘ Labels Thirty-Two as the journaling section. I think this die has a very ornament, holiday feel to it and I love it! I made “stitches” around the edges with a black sharpie.

Darice Puzzle Card

Monday, December 2nd, 2013

Although the holidays are fast approaching, December is a full birthday month in my life which is why this Darice Puzzle Card is a great way to start of the month. I have been so excited about the holidays and getting my Christmas shopping done, that I am now in panic mode for the birthday gifts, cards, and shipping times. I like to be done early so I can enjoy the holidays without most of the hustle and bustle so, I pumped out a few cards for the everyday, the birthdays, and the regular sentiments that I should be able to kick back, relax and start reading A Chrsitmas Carol for the first time.

Darice has come out with some adorable embossing folders! I saw the puzzle pattern and had at least 5 ideas of how to make it a card. My 3-year-old loves puzzles, so I will be making something for her. Actually, it just came to mind that I could take a regular disney picture, emboss the pattern on it, cut it out, and then I’ll have an instant and quick new puzzle to keep her occupied for quite a while. FUN! All I did with this embossing folder was run it through my cuttlebug and then outline the pattern with a sharpie to make it more visible. I love a little background texture!

To embellish, take your favorite sentiments, add a little bling and the adorable Bitty Blossoms from Spellbinders and you’re finished! You’ve got a beautiful card that you can use for several occasions.

Christmas Countdown Box

Tuesday, November 26th, 2013

countdown  box decor  box side view

December 1 is almost here, so this week it was time for me to finish a Christmas Countdown box.  Christmas countdown boxes are a fun way to spread the joy and anticipation of Christmas through the entire month of December.  The drawers can be filled with any small gift – candy, money, ornaments, etc.

I started with a pre-made countdown box, so this project was quick and easy.  I knew that I wanted to use the Santa’s List decorative brads by Theresa Collins to number the boxes.  These brads are so cute, and were just so perfect for my project.  I placed a 2” length of red grosgrain ribbon (folded over) underneath each brad to create a pull tab for each of the drawers.  My Crop-A-Dile punch by We R Memory Keepers punched right through the cardboard box (and the ribbon) with no problem.

To decorate the sides of the box, I used strips of the Theresa Collins Santa’s List washi tape set.  I think washi tape is so fun, and is a quick and easy way to decorate just about anything.    This set includes a red and white striped tape, a countdown tape, a holly tape and a “Merry Christmas” tape.

I wanted to decorate the back of the box so that it could be a decoration itself.  To do this, I selected a piece of lightly patterned cardstock.  You have to be a little careful in selecting the cardstock — if it is too busy the decorative elements won’t show up (for example, I first chose a red/white polka dot cardstock, but the decorations just faded into it).  To decorate the back of the box, I cut the words “Merry Christmas” from green cardstock using a Quickutz die.  The Santa face was cut from a piece of Anna Griffin cardstock.  To pop it, I taped it to a piece of green cardstock and added an approximate 1/8” layer.  The bow was the most fun part of the project.

This year a number of companies have introduced dies to make bows — Sizzix, My Favorite Things, etc.  It is so much fun to be able to make beautiful dimensional bows, and they are so simple to make.   Generally the dies consist of three elements – a piece that creates the loops, a flat backing piece, and a small wrap to hold the other two sections together.  The bow I used for this project is the Jumbo Beautiful Bow by My Favorite Things.  You can see the die pieces below.

die pieces

You need to cut one of each shape.   I cut mine from the red flocked floral or craft ribbon  that is used so much around the holidays.  I like to use Scor-Tape to assemble the bows, although glue would also work.    I placed a small piece of Scor-Tape in the center of the shape to make the loops, and one on the “wrap” piece.  Please see the short video for instructions on how to assemble the bows.

This picture shows a close-up view of the two bows – one made from cardstock (left) and the other from flocked ribbon (right).  Both are dimensional – the cardstock bow retains a rounder shape, while the bow made from the flocked ribbon relaxes a little more.


To finish my box – I trimmed the patterned cardstock, and attached it to the back of the box with Scor-Tape.  Because of the detail in the letters, I used a product called “Sticky Dots” to attach the words “Merry Christmas”.   I used Scor-Tape to attach the bow and the Santa face.

Another quick and fun project!

Family Stories

Monday, November 25th, 2013

Teresa CollinsFamily Stories Collection Pack is the perfect way to start off the documentation of your upcoming holiday memories. Take pictures of thanksgiving, birthdays, visiting Santa, Christmas, New Years, or just because and this will can be your “go-to” paper. It’s family theme helps make scrapbooking pictures of your family so easy and fun!

So, I have this adorable little boy and I struggle with scrapbooking his pictures because I’m always naturally drawn to things that are frilly and girly. I hardly ever lean towards getting boy paper or dies. The reason I love this paper so much is that it can go for either gender equally well and I was still so drawn to it. Yes, there is still pink, but it’s not a ‘girls-only’ type of pink.

I do want to point out the new Spellbinders dies. I used the Lables Thirty-Two on this layout and there are several reasons I love it. First, I love that it’s so versitile. I used it behind the flower chipboard sticker on the second page and it looks like it was made for this collection. I have also used it on several holiday cards because it can look like an ornament! It is so great! Try it out and see what you come up with.

Teresa Collins Paper Collections!

Thursday, August 15th, 2013

I am finally getting to show you Teresa Collins paper collections from Summer 2013 CHA! I was beginning to think that I would never get to show you how beautiful these are, even though some of you may have already seen the videos on our YouTube channel. I really do hope that you have actually.

Janeth and I had a great time in Teresa’s booth visiting with her and her lovely daughter Gentry. I just can’t say enough nice things about Teresa. She is a rare gem and her designs reflect her refinement. When you walk into her booth, it is just like walking into a friend’s home. She welcomes you with such warmth, that you almost forget you are at a trade show!









Teresa has come out with 4 spectacular lines that are totally perfect for anyone! She has made sure to introduce one for Halloween and Christmas which make me itch to get started on these holidays, even though I still can’t convince myself it is mid August already! Keep watching our site as we will have these available to order soon. Here is a sneak peak of these lines in video and pictures!

Teresa Collins He Said She Said

Monday, July 22nd, 2013

We have seen the Teresa Collins He Said She Said layout done before, but I wanted the show the “She side” of this collection since it was done from the other last time. Doing this project, I had one goal in mind: to use ONLY the collection pack you receive. Nothing else. No stamps. No dies. No outside embellishments. Just the paper and the sweet little nothings that come with it.

First, I love starting off a project with a goal in mind. I wanted to do this because I know several people without a die cutting machine or a lot of knick-knacks for scrapbooking and I wanted to illustrate that you really CAN make adorable pages with just paper!

You all know how much I rave about Teresa Collins and how beautiful her products are, but it’s too true to deny it. Her products help facilitate adorable results and you don’t even have to own a scrapbook store to get the result you want. That’s just heavenly if you ask me!  ENJOY IT! :)
