Hi Everyone, I’m privilege to be the Guest Designer over at The Shabby Tea Room this week and we’re getting on our Pumpkin Spice. Yum! My absolute favorite autumn flavor! This week’s challenge is pumpkin and glitter using the photo below as your inspiration. Doesn’t it look delicious? Check out the link HERE for all of the details to play along and also for the linky to post your project. I’ve made a treat box, well, two actually. I just couldn’t make up my mind which paper I liked best. I’ve used a cut file (Design ID #31294) on my Silhouette Cameo as the base so it came together really fast. Hope you like it.
Be sure and mark your challenge as Week #190
I’ve added glittery Stickles around the round circles.

Thanks for stopping by today and thank you to the Shabby Tea Room for the fun challenge and also for the privilege of being your Guest Designer for the week. It has been a lot of fun!
Have a great week, Everyone.
Throughout the month of November, I’ve challenged myself to think each day and journal about one thing for which I’m thankful for (no trouble there). I’m inviting you, my subscribers/followers to participate with me. I’m using a project life-style format, but you could use a notebook, Smash book or any other type of art journal that you would like. The main thing is just to stop and think about things we so often take for granted.
Please watch the video below (or on my YouTube channel
My Journal is a Bo Bunny Misc Me! Cest La Vie 8″ x 9″ Binder with 3 rings
I’m also using all of the coordinating insert pages for this collection.
Hi Everyone, super fast post today. I wanted to share with you a journal that I embellished and added a burlap pen holder to. I also customized the pen. You know the RSVP pens that have the nice hollow barrel that you can slot your own pretty paper down into? =) Love those! If you haven’t heard of them, you can pick them up online (just search RSVP pen) or in the States at Wal-Mart. I wish I would have taken a close-up photo of the barrel of the pen before I sent it off so I could show you what I mean, but you can see it in the video below. Hope you enjoy this cute, quick little project. It makes a wonderful gift. Great for birthdays or the upcoming holidays. I picked this one up at Michaels some time back. Its the kind that has a magnetic closure on the right. Anyway, the video HERE explains everything pretty well, but if you have any questions, let me know.
The journal measures about 6″ x 8″
Here is the video (if you are getting this post via e-mail, you can watch the video HERE).
Hi Everyone, I have 3 cards to share with you today. The theme for today is: Using your die cut negatives as card layers. I’ve given three variations to give a bit of inspiration. Use whatever Christmas dies you have on-hand or ones that you could adapt for use as Christmas-themed. Then choose some embossing folders and have fun. I share all of the details in the video tutorial below and on my YouTube channel HERE. If you have any questions, let me know by leaving a comment or send me a quick e-mail. Enjoy today’s tutorial!
I made the wreath using a Martha Stewart fern punch. I punched a bunch of branches from textured cardstock and then glued them to form a wreath. Fun!
(This is the inside of one of the cards)
Here is the video tutorial (or you can watch it on YouTube HERE).
Thanks for stopping by today. I always appreciate it. I seem to be a bit behind in posting on my blog from the projects that I share on my YouTube channel, so if you don’t want to wait to see what I’ve been up to, feel free to head over there for a nosey. =) I’m hoping to get caught up over the next week here on my blog. Be back soon! xx
Happy, happy Sunday! Today’s Christmas card tutorial is a super fun card where I show you how to create an amazing stained glass look for your Christmas card. I happen to be using a poinsettia stamp, but any line art stamp will work for this fantastic technique. Check out the video tutorial below (or on my YouTube channel) for all of the instructions. I hope you’ll give it a try. I have also listed the supplies you’ll need, below . Let me know if you have any questions. It’s a great card for mailing as it has a very low profile (one stamp! Yay!) and it looks really over-the-top. Check out all that shimmer!
Supplies needed:(For Technique): Any Christmas-themed outline stamp Acetate or transparency (I show the packaging in the video) Glossy Accents Stamp pad re-inkers (mine are Stampin’ Up) Stickles (optional – depending on your stamp) Super fine crystal glitter (I’m using SU Dazzling Diamonds) Scissors (Card Supplies): White card base measuring 5.5″ x 8.5″ Layer (4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″) Same color as one of your re-inkers (red) White card stock layer (4″ x 5.25″) Christmas sentiment stamps (outside and inside) Dye-based stamp ink pad in same color as your re-inker Embossing folder with frame (optional) Die cutting/embossing machine (optional)

If you follow me on YouTube, you’ll know that I am a little behind in updating my blog, as I’m already on card #3 over there. I will try and post the other two cards over the next 2-3 days for all of my wonderful blog followers. I sure do appreciate each of you, by the way. Just to give you a bit of an intro, what I’ve decided to do is a bit of an open-ended Christmas card series for 2013. Open-ended meaning, I have not yet decided how many cards there will be. You may be thinking, “What? Its only the 12th of October, why not share Autumn cards?” I have and I will have some more upcoming, but for those who make a lot of Christmas cards or like to get a bit of a head start before all of the hustle and bustle, I wanted to give a little jump start and share some cards that I’ve come up with. By the way, if you have any requests, feel free to post a comment, I’m always happy to do what I can to help or accommodate requests.
I don’t have a written tutorial for this card, just the process video; which is posted below and on YouTube HERE.
