10 Cards | 1 Kit – Spellbinders November Card Kit (Part 1 of 2)

Hello Hello…

It’s was a busy weekend for me – I traveled to PA for my nephew’s 8th birthday party – LEGO EVERYTHING!! I did make a birthday card for him but as it’s not Christmas themed I’ll save it for a later date. So now I’m getting back into the swing of things and have Part 1 of the Spellbinders November, Deer Santa Kit for you. LOVE this kit, love the die set, love the ephemera, love the washi, love love love.

Here are the first 5 cards I came up with:

Here are some close-ups of the finished cards:

Such cuties – if only I could get my Charlie cat to wear a Santa hat!

I love this Holiday cheer sentiment – the script is gorgeous and super fun mixed with the large block font. It has a great hand done look.

This deer is so cute – I fell in love instantly.

Who wouldn’t love a present wrapped up in that shiny gold ribbon?!?

As always thanks for stopping by to check out my cards – hope I was able to give you some inspiration to use with your kit! xoxo, Sarah

Happy Mail | Tag Flip feat. Crate Paper Merry Days Collection

Hello!

Today I’ve got a tag flip to share with you…I love this so much I wanted to keep it for myself, sigh. But I’m going to have to let it go and hope the recipient enjoys it as much as I do. I was late to the party in ordering the Merry Days stuff so I wasn’t able to get everything I wanted (why, oh why don’t they stock more to begin with??) However between scrapbook.com and amazon, I was able to get the things I really wanted. Here is how I put the tag flip together:

Here are some still shots of the finished tags:

12 Days of Christmas | Fa La La – Shaker Tags

Hello there…running late again today. Does anyone else feel constantly behind during the holidays? Maybe it’s just me.

I am IN LOVE with this collection from Crate Paper – I should have bought all the things! I’m tempted to get them now while I still can, but I have way too much to work with this year already and I’m running out of time. What is super great about it is that you can make feminine and masculine designs from it. I’m going to use most of these to decorate gifts for my family and I’ve ticked off a tag for everyone I needed to. Take a look at the process video here:

I know that went by really fast – here are some still shots for you:

So much fun – I could make these every day!

That line of tags was cut from the bottom of a 6×6 sheet of paper and ended up being one of my favorite pieces of ephemera.

Ok…I know they’re not terribly masculine, but probably as close as glitter is ever going to get…

10

This one is my favorite…

…so it get’s two pics. Mint green, pink, and gold – what’s not to love?

7

I especially love all the gold accents that are in this collection.

I forgot to mention it in the video, but the Tim Holtz Small talk stickers worked great to add some extra sentiments.

8

I’m super stingy with that lucy’s little things purely peppermint mix – I love it and just want to hoard it.

2

This tag is super tiny, but one of my favorites. I really like the look of the layered tags, I’ll definitely do more of that on future shakers.
