Thankful Banner

Here's the banner I created for my sister. I almost kept it for myself! I used the gorgeous paper from DCWV Wild Splendor, beautiful foil and glitter pages.  I purchased it for $4 last year, after Thanksgiving sale at Michael's.  I know right, bargain, or were you thinking paper hoarder? LOL
The banner is a SVG cut from Designs on Cloud 9 and I used brads, twine, sequins and rhinestones to embellish.

Here's the banner in her home.  I snapped the photo with my phone, so it's a little fuzzy.

Have your Elf a little...


How cute are those Elf shoes!  I kept thinking of Buddy the Elf,  "I just like to smile, smiling's is my favorite".  LOL  One of my favorite Christmas movies of all time!

I'm guest designing for A Jillian Vance Design, using the new Dear Santa stamp and die set.   Cut and stamp, how easy is that!  The legs are from scrap bits and accents with Stickles.  The talk bubbles were cut with Cricut.  Pattern paper from Echo Park's 'Tis the Season and Reflections Christmas; twine from The Twinery.

This set is adorable from the moment you run the dies through and you see the lil' clothing to stamping and embellishing, cuteness overload!!


 I also want to remind you of the Black Friday Sale going on right now, don't miss it:


Thank you AJVD for inviting me to guest design it was loads of fun creating with the stamp and die set!!  Have your'elf a Happy Thanksgiving! ♥

K-Cup Gift Box {Designs On Cloud 9}

Happy Friday!  I'm sharing the K-Cup gift box for my sister's upcoming birthday.  The gift box is designed for Christmas, but you can easily make it birthday theme or for a hostess gift.


The rosette is pre-made, because I can not for the life me make a rosette.  I used a Colorbok stack I purchased at Joann's for $4.  Double sided paper works best.   The sentiment is by Latina Crafter.

WOW! Wednesday {Housecalls by Scrappin' Madge}


Today, I'm sharing a few more of my 30 Days of Gratitude book.


Day Seventeen and Eighteen:
These pages feature the bonus page from Teresa Collins, Giving Thanks.  I have used every bit of this page, including the bottom strip I usually toss out. LOL
I also used stamps, pins, wood veneer, sequins from my stash.   


Day Nineteen and Twenty:

I love the orange damask paper and have fallen in love with Teresa Collin's collections.  I'm waiting patiently for the Memorabilia collection. 

My album measures 8x8 and will be using the Cinch to bind.  I did use 6-8 sheets of additional cardstock.  I choose to go with a slightly bigger size, but you can easily create a smaller book with the contents of the kit.

Believe

Hello and happy Monday, I am so excited to be guest designing for A Jillian Vance Design stamp company!!  Here's the card I created using the new Dear Santa stamp and die set.

Believe! All the evidence is there, the receipt from the The Toy Shop, the jolly Ho ho ho and Santa's hat!  I believe!
The receipts and pattern paper from Echo Park's This & That Christmas collection; twine from The Twinery; doily and ribbon from my stash.  I stamped the "ho ho ho" to create my background paper.

I am truly in love this adorable stamp set! This set is a must have not only for card making but for home decor and scrapbooking!  It is a 4 x 8 stamp set with lots of fun images and sentiments.  Adorbs!  The images traced in the red outline have a die, making it that much more fun to create with!  
 
Thank you AJVD for inviting me to guest design. I will be designing again with this stamp set on November 25th, hope to see then!

WOW! Wednesday {Housecalls by Scrappin' Madge}


November is a the month that always zooms by, I mean way faster than any other month!  I have documented the first 5 Grateful Days and there's just 23 days before Thanksgiving....please slow it down a bit.

Today, I'm sharing a few more of my 30 Days of Gratitude book.


Day Thirteen and Fourteen:
I love the gold accents on these pages.  I cut an oversize library pocket; a cutting file from Designs On Cloud 9, from Authentique's paper.   I additionally included an extra pocket using a mini chevron bag.  The gold rosette is a mini cupcake liner, the swirl is a cut out of a leaf I used on Day 15.  I stamped the day on a wood veneer circle, but I stamped the wrong day! LOL  So I covered it with the correct day and added an epoxy sticker...really like the extra dimension.    I wrapped some hemp cording I purchased almost two years ago, it has a bit of gold, perfect for the page.
On Day 14, I  used the photo overlays from the Hello Gorgeous kit and used them to create pocket; loving the gold frames, ties my pages together.   I also used stamps, pins, wood veneer, sequins from my stash.   



Day Fifteen and Sixteen: These pages feature the bonus page from Teresa Collins, Giving Thanks.  I have used every bit of this page, including the name of the paper line as a sentiment. 

My album measures 8x8 and will be using the Cinch to bind.  I did use 6-8 sheets of additional cardstock.  I choose to go with a slightly bigger size, but you can easily create a smaller book with the contents of the kit.    I will be sharing more pages this week. :)

Harvest Traditions Blog Hop Day 2 {Housecalls Kit Reveal}

Welcome to Day 2 of Housecalls' Kit by Scrappin Madge Blog Hop....introducing, Housecalls Kit, Harvest Traditions.

I'm doing 30 Days of Gratitude again this year.  Here are some more pages:

Day Nine & Ten:  All pattern paper, flair and yellow washi tape from the kit.  Stamps, pins, cork shapes and other embellishments from my stash.  I included 2 inserts on Day 10.  I have a gathering and I'm sure I will take more than just one photo.  The next couple photos are with the inserts flipped.  It was also at this point that realized I should take it easy with chunky embellishments or not.  LOL  This is the first time I use all of the flair buttons and not hoard them. Yay me!

First insert flipped.



This is a better view of Day 10.  I created my own faux flair, added the ribbon lace, heart washi, rhinestones from my stash.



Day Eleven and Twelve:  Oh there's the blue wood grain paper....it's so pretty along with the floral and leaf pattern.  the "remember" circle is a cut out by Teresa Collins included in the kit. 
The "G" is from the burlap print alpha included in the kit. 


My album measures 8x8 and will be using the Cinch to bind.  I did use 6-8 sheets of additional cardstock.  I choose to go with a slightly bigger size, but you can easily create a smaller book with the contents of the kit.    I will be sharing more pages on WoW Wednesday, I hope to see you then if not sooner. :)
