One Last Christmas Card

Fresh Squeezed Stamps is having a challenge using an adorable Christmas digi. I couldn't resist and, to be honest, I'm still in the Christmas spirit!

Images are a little tricky for me so this really was a challenge. I am not big on coloring - I LOVE when other people do it, I just am not usually happy with my results. So, I had to get a little creative. I did color the wreath and bird in with my Spectrum markers. However for the house I used my blending chalks. I added holly to the birdie's wreath with Stickles and some white glitter finished off the snow-capped roof. The printed paper is from last year's Christmas line by Bo Bunny.

You can check out the challenge by going to the Fresh Squeezed Stamps blog. And, if you like my card, you can vote for it by clicking the "Like" button.

Thanks for reading and I hope you're enjoying your holidays as much as I am!

12 Days of Christmas with CutCardStock!

Hi folks! Today I am so excited to share a project I created for! In October I won the opportunity to be a guest designer for their Tricks and Treats series. They sent me an AMAZING assortment of their cardstock to work with. I was beyond happy to come back for their 12 Days of Christmas series. Please head over to their blog to see my project along with many other Christmas ideas.

My December Daily

Hello crafters! As I shared previously, this year I am attempting a December Daily. December is my favorite month of the year so the idea of an entire project dedicated to it sounded like fun. However, I have already fallen behind. But I determined that this project was not going to stress me out and that it was for me, alone. So as long as I am having fun, then I will consider it a success!

I shared a page last week and today I have two more. As a recap, here are my first three pages.

I may not be sitting down to scrap on a daily basis, but I am taking at least a picture a day. I figure at some point I'll catch up. For the days when I am not doing anything "Christmasy" I have this list to help me out. I am using a Simple Stories Sn@p binder but have yet to make a cover.

So far I am really enjoying this project. It's low stress because it's about what is important to me and what I notice at Christmas. I hope I can keep it up!

Thanks for reading!

December Daily with Scrap it With a Song

Hi all!

Hope you are enjoying the holiday season! The Christmas music is cranked up at our house and the crafting is in full swing! I have a new project up for Scrap it With a Song. This week's challenge is "Step Into Christmas" by Elton John.

This year I am attempting to do a December Daily and this is my page for December 2nd. We made hot apple cider that night from a delicious recipe I found on Pinterest. I'm using a Snap binder by Simple Stories and inserting my own pages using scraps from my Christmas bag. I'll have more pages to share next week!

You can find this recipe for slow cooker apple cider at the Kitchen Treaty blog and I found the cute date labels as a FREE (yes, FREE!) printable. Thanks, CreativityPrompt!

Scrap it With a Song is also having a Design Team call for their next term! It really is a fun, relaxed team to be a part of. Check out the blog for more details.

Thanks for reading!

I'm Back...and I've got a Snowman Refridgerator!

Hello crafty world! November was an insanely crazy month for me. We unexpectedly had to move from a home we had just moved into at the the beginning of the year. I have learned that I HATE packing! Luckily we are blessed with some amazing friends and we were able to get it done quickly.

I've finally unpacked my crafty space and am ITCHING to get back into the swing of things. One month is a long time to go without crafting! I miss my pretty paper. Even though I am ready to get back into it, I'm also kind of overwhelmed. I don't know where to begin!

Today I started with a craft involving paper, although it's not the kind of craft I'm used to blogging about. The holidays are upon us and I've had so much fun decorating the new place.

It snowed in our kitchen today!
Looking forward to creating and sharing some new projects soon! I am seriously considering doing a December Daily. Anyone have any experience with making one?

Thanks for reading! So...what have I missed in the crafty world?
