Christmas Paper Cone & Ornament Wreath

I'm really loving paper cone wreaths these days.  I like my last one so much, Giving Thanks that I plan to  keep it hanging up in my craft room year round. 

This time I decided to make a Christmas Paper Cone and Ornament Wreath using {dollar store} red ornaments in the center.   It really does make a beautiful Holiday Statement don't ya think?

Guest Designer for The Paper Variety- Color Challenge

  Thanks so much to the ladies at The Paper Variety for having me as a guest designer this week for there color challenge! 
I just love this color combo and this photo reminds me of something I'd be drooling at in a Pottery Barn store.   My inspiration for this paper project came from the cute little woodsy-blue owl on the Cindy Loo cartridge.

Since I was going with the owl theme, I thought this would be the perfect time to use this Core Impressions paper and make this cute little bag that Robin from Robin's Creative Cottage designed .

Since the paper was already embossed with a wood grain texture, I sanded it a little for a distressed look. I cut the owl at 3 inches and added a few leaves cut from the Potpourri Basket cartridge to bring in the challenge colors.   I tied the bag together with a raffia bow, added a button and stamped a sentiment from Getting Cricky with K. Andrews- Food For Thought Stamps

Thanks so much for looking and thanks to The Paper Variety for having me as a Guest Designer!

I'm also sharing this with:

Thankful for Friends- Glass Etching

     The Simply Sunday Challenge this week over at Getting Cricky with K. Andrews  is a "Give Thanks" project. I made these etched glass candle holder's to give to a few of my girlfriends who can really appreciate a good craft.   I'm thankful for our good conversations and laughs together. 

      This was my first attempt at etching glass and I really like how they turned out.  Looks like it's right out of a Pottery Barn Magazine, right? Much cheaper too!
       I etched the first letter of their last name using Gypsy Font.  I stamped a Thankful sentiment from K. Andrews Fall-O-oween Stamps and attached the tag with a button and raffia.   

Thanks for looking and Happy Thanksgiving!

Guest Designer for Decorate to Celebrate- Pink and Purple Princess

  Thanks to the ladies from Decorate to Celebrate for having me as a guest designer during there month long Birthday Challenge.

     My daughter just recently celebrated her 5th birthday so I'm sharing a few things we made together for her special day. She requested princess invitations with matching pink and purple cupcakes.  
We chose to use the crown from Sweet Treats on all our projects.  As you can see, everything is pink and purple!
 For the invitations, we embossed the layers of the crown and mat and then added some glitter and gems for little girl sparkly fun.
Here are the pink and purple cupcakes as requested by the birthday girl.  The cupcake toppers are cut from the same crown as the card  and invitations. 
I wanted her to have a keepsake from her special day so I made a birthday card book.  The inside of the book card opens to a picture of her on her birthday and the next page has signatures of all the guests.   The card book is cut at 6" and embellished with ribbons, buttons and bling.
How cute are all the signatures of her little friends?

My daughter had the best day!  Thanks to  Decorate to Celebrate for having me as a Guest Designer!

Blog Candy Winner......

Thanks for all the fun feedback's left on my Guest Designer  post for Crafting Misfit.   The winner of my blog candy is Lisa from The Mane Idea -Yeah Lisa!  Thanks to Rebecca too for having me as your Guest Designer. 

Birthday Card Book...

  Thanks to the ladies at Fantabulous Cricut for featuring me this week on Spotlight Sunday and also having me as there guest designer!  The challenge this week is to create a project with a book or something related to a book.

     Since it was my daughter's 5th birthday last Friday, I made her a Birthday Card Book.  I'm actually not sure if  I should call it a book card or mini album but basically, it's a 3 page keepsake that has her birthday picture on one page and signatures of the guest's on the next page.  I guess it's a group card? Anyways, it's a fun reminder of her special day.

 I used the crown from Cricut Sweet Treats as the base of the book cut at 6 inches.   On the cover, I welded my daughter's name Reese from Opposites Attract using my Gypsy.  Then just added gems, ribbons and buttons for some fun and sparkly embellishments.

One Sheet Cookie Box...

 Since the holiday's are coming up, many of us like to give little gifts or baked goods to the people we love. Here's how to make a simple cookie box that can be made in a flash and uses only one sheet of 12 x 12 scrapbooking paper!  How cool is that?

I kept the box simple since the paper is so pretty and added a few flower rosettes cut from Cricut Flower Shoppe cartridge, wrapped the box with a raffia bow and stamped a Thankful sentiment.
