Christmas Season Preview

I wasn’t planning on doing a Christmas project yet and having one more week of fall and Halloween projects but this Christmas one snuck in to just give you a preview.


A couple of things about this one before I share the separate card and envelope pictures¬† This card is actually a little different. It’s actually 4 X 5.5 but I actually really like the way it looks. Also a little Scan N Cut note. I used the pre-loaded holly image to make the little holly berries… I’m not really a fan… I like the Cricut better for these preloaded image type things. There’s no “Shadow” feature for the scan n cut so I couldn’t just match up the pieces… I had to figure it out myself and I just am not a fan of how it came out.


And the back

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #183

Now that things have slowed down at work lets try getting back into this blogging thing.

It’s Monday and you know what that means! Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge time!!!

I actually struggled with this sketch a bit… So I hope you’ll join us this week so I can see what you come up with!


And now what I came up with.


Really cute and simple. I have another try at this card scheduled for later this week and I actually think that one came out a little better although my mom likes this one.

And the back.


I even made a matching envelope!

You’ll ignore the ink smudge right…. Just pretend it isn’t there….



I don’t even now where that smudge came from…¬† I have one of those sand erasers…. But it’s a little MIA at the moment…

And the back flap of the envelope.

A whole lot of pink

I have a little rule that goes along with the Get Orgnized Challenge I participated in earlier this year. If I have a scrap laying around and I haven’t used it in a week then it gets thrown out. I’m lucky enough to be able to make a lot of time for crafting so that rule works for me but sometimes if I’ve been busy I’ll make a little exception and hold on to scraps a little longer. I hate keeping scraps around though so I do tend to toss them quickly. The point to this story though is why you often see my use the same papers over and over very close together. i had just recently done a lot of pink cards and had lots of pink scraps sitting around so It was time to use them!!
