Merry & Bright Shadowbox


This is my first shadowbox project and I love it!  I think I'm hooked!  I had actually made this one before the one I made for the My Sheri Crafts post, but had left it in "Draft" status.

The holly leaves are just paper, but they really look like I've stuffed the box with them.  I bought these cute little "bulbs" at the Dollar General.  The font is "Elegant Cake" with some swirls welded to it.  All swirls and flourishes are Cricut cuts.  That's it!  Super simple, but sweet!  

Thanks for stopping by!

Jingle All The Way Shadowbox

I am in the middle of packing up my whole house and moving!  My whole craft room is in cardboard boxes and I'm having such severe withdrawal that I forgot to make my last post for My Sheri Crafts!  This was due up Saturday, the 2nd!

This time our challenge theme is "Let's Build a Snowman - include a snowman in your project".  I've seen lots of these "Jingle All The Way" shadowboxes and decided to make one of my own.


I used "Precious" font and some snowflake cuts from Cricut.  My snowmen are on the cute background paper.  I've filled the shadowbox with various sizes and colors of jinglebells.  I love the way it turned out!  

Sorry I'm so late with my post, and I'll be back with a new project as soon as I can get my craftroom moved and set up!

Cute & Cuddely Tuesday

Good morning!  It's Team A's turn again at Tuesday Throwdown and we're getting "Cute And Cuddely"!  Our sponsor is
                                                           http://www.mygrafico.com/digital-stamps/cat_95.html

They've provided us cute penguin digis to use this week and I've combined 2 of them:

I love penguins!  Have I mentioned that before on this blog?  *grin*  I've colored these with Spectrum Noir markers and mounted them on a beautiful piece of paper that came with an issue of Cardmaking & Papercrafting Magazine.  Gotta love freebies!!!


I tried to show the little bit of shimmer in the paper, but it doesn't really show up.  Even though the paper really didn't need any embellishing, I added 3 sequins and the strip of silver ribbon just because I couldn't help myself.

Please stop by Tuesday Throwdown to check out all the CUTE inspiration there and join us!  See you there!

A Couple More Candles

These candles are some I made for Chrstimas gifts for a couple of my co-workers last year.  Again, I just found the posts left in "draft" status!



Another Candle!

Looking through my post list, I've found a few drafts that I've never finished.  Here is the first one.  I love making these candles and am getting ready to make more for Christmas gifts.  I LOVE the colors in this one!  


I made it for a friend's birthday and here is the gift bag I made to go with it.


The "Celebrate" is a sticker that just matched this paper really well.  Very simple, but super fun!

Thanks for checking in with me!

Getting In The Christmas Spirit!


Hello!  I hope you had a good Thanksgiving and aren't still feeling too full!  If so, it's time to get into your craft room and exercise......your creativity!

  This week at My Sheri Crafts, Sandy has asked us to show a little Christmas spirit with "Old Fashioned/Vintage Christmas Cards or Projects".  Well, what's more old fashioned than a sleigh ride "in a one horse, open sleigh"?  
The image is a cut file from Cricut's Christmas Cards cartridge and I welded a square around it to frame the block.  The snowflakes are all cuts from various Cricut cartridges and the one in the tree is the inside of one of the others.   Inside I sprayed just a quick squirt of frost, hoping it would look like snow.  I don't really like how that turned out, but I guess it's not too bad.   I've added some navy blue vellum paper to hide he cord.


To add some "feet" to the block and give room for the cord I glued on some empty tape rolls from my ATG gun!
Here is it lit up, before I added the "feet".  

I hope you'll come over and check out all the other beautiful inspiration and join in the fun!

An Old Bag

Good Morning!!  We have a new challenge at Tuesday Throwdown today!  We are sponsored by Lily Patch Boutique and our theme is "Shopping"!  Now we all know that a "must have" for a shopping spree is just the right purse!


The image is Digi Darla's "Pick A Purse", colored with Sprectrum Noir markers.  The papers are all scraps, the front sentiment stamp is from KStamps and the inside stamp is from Stampin' Up.

I thought this was a fun sentiment, but it will sure have to go to someone with a sense of humor!  :-)

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you'll come on over and check out the rest of the teams creations and join us!


I've entered these challenges:

Crafting from the Heart - anything goes
Aud Sentiments - Tic Tac Toe plus a sentiment (patterned paper, digi stamp, favorite color-blue)
Cards In Envy - extra layers
Get Creative - birthday
Whoopsi Daisy - lots of layers
