It's Time To Decorate!

I'm usually much more organized and ready to get all my trees up by December 1st! But not this year, but hopefull  by the end of the weekend. I love Christmas decorating and lights and love to just sit and stare at my trees when they are lit. Plus I need a place to hang my new ornament I made!

Featuring Pretty Pink Posh, the Winter Wonderland set, I created a new ornament and a holiday card.
More details and close ups are over on the Scrap Shotz Blog today. And links for all the products are there too!


Love all the sizes of snowflakes and these little penguins!
New ornament side 1! Yes more snowflakes :)

Side two with the adorable igloo, done in Emerald Creek embossing powder in Fractured Ice and Soft Fallen Snow.
Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

Home for the Holidays!

I am so excited for yet another amazing release from Wild Whisper!! November 1st marked the release of Home for the Holidays! And yes, order two of everything LOL Decisions are so hard to make when both sides of the paper and the card pack are gorgeous!!

My first project with this new release is this great flip card.





The ornament sheet of paper just screams to be fussy cut, so to silence the paper, I fussy cut a bunch of the ornaments and added them with pop dots! And the small sentiments stamps from the set are just perfect to fit inside the ornaments. For more detailed pics and pics of the inside head on over to the Wild Whisper blog and check it out. Don't forget to follow on Instagram and the blog because there will be new projects up all month long with this wonderful holiday collection! 

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!!

It's Christmas Card Time

Working on Christmas cards!! I know, everyone else is doing Halloween and fall right now, but I'm not a Halloween girl (don't hurt me!!) So I am working on Christmas for my craft fair I have coming up in November. This year there is going to be a lot of purple Christmas! Thanks to the gorgeous Kaisercraft line and my new embossing powder from Emerald Creek! And my Christmas dies from Tim Holtz!
And woodland scenes with deer that smell like coffee!! YES!! I said coffee!! Keep your eyes on Emerald Creek for a new embossing powder called Just Java it's gorgeous and smells like coffee ~sigh~ Perfection in a jar! :)

I've got three Christmas cards and one "coffee" card well because it just had to be made. Apparently though....starting a conversation with "hey...smell my card" is weird!! LOL Well the look on my Uncle's face made me think it wasn't a great conversation starter!

TH die for the cup, TH stencil Distress Oxides and Emerald Creek Just Java Embossing Powder!
New deer stamps from the TH special release, embossed in Just Java and my birch die that I forgot to use last year! I wasn't sure how to colour it but Zoe Hillman has a great tutorial on her blog and lists the colours she used for the birch trees, it's the Winter Woodland post.

Love this diamond stamp from the TH special release, especially done in this gorgeous purple embossing powder from Emerald Creek. And I used the little garland from one of the new Christmas thinlits sets.

And yes more purple Christmas! The paper and cut outs from Kaisercraft are perfect for quick and pretty cards and the purple snowflake background is from Emerald Creek.

Look at this glorious purple!!

Love the beautiful frosty metallic finish! I want to use this on everything! So glad I picked up the Kaisercraft Christmas Jewel Collection.

And more Just Java on a maple leaf, going to be the must have of the new year!

Thanks for stopping by and hope you are all having a great week!!
