Believe in Miracles

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year Everyone!!
It is the time of year to believe in miracles.

Today I am working with a New Release image from

What I have for you today is a cute little pop up book book card.
I found the tutorial HERE.
Beccy's Place has tons of card folding instructions for you
and makes a great resource.

The inside sentiment is a stamp by Stampabilities.

Here is the template from Beccy's Place so you can see how to cut the inside.
I alter mine to make the panel smaller.

Thank you for having a peek and can't wait to see you all
in the 2016 YEAR.

Happy Crafting

Hot Cocoa with Flair

Hello everyone!  Ever need one of those last minute small gifts with something
already in the house as you don't have time to run out and get something?
Well, I had one of those moments as my Mail Lady is leaving on vacation after
her shift today til after Christmas.  Yes, I live in a small enough town that
she spends a few minutes talking to you if you happen to be seen by her.
Love it!!
I made a hot cocoa sleeve and gave it my flair for a one of a kind gift.


I just measured how wide and doubled that and added 1" for a 1/2" side, cut it 
and then scored in 1/2" on both sides.  Then I measured the height of the packets 
and added 1/2" and cut.  I glued the 1/2' sides on top of each other and made
a tube to slide the packet into.
I took some paper and cut to fit the front and stamped FOR YOU
and attached to the tube.  Took some ribbon and glued to half of the front
added my digi image over that.  Just wrap your ribbon around and tie a bow.
I just happened to have a spoon mold, bought at Michaels, and peppermint candies.
Put the candies in my blender and chopped them up, put in the mold in my oven at 
300* for about 20 minutes and now I have some sweet stir sticks for
the hot cocoa.  Dipped them in chocolate and attached to the sleeve.

Now I have 7 more peppermint spoons to make some more little
gifts to give out.  I guess I better get busy.

They image I used is Sherri Baldy My Besties img932
You can find this one and many more adorable digis at

Hope you have liked today project.

Christmas is approaching and the New Year
is not far behind.  I am Christmas Carded out.  Is anyone else?
I love the Holidays, but needed a nice distraction and think I have found it.

Today I have for you a girly bright and cheery little sweetie!

I took warm grey W0 and W1 and shaded all around her.

I started with a 6 x 6 base and layered with black and pink Recollections cardstock.
I used a Martha Stewart corner punch for the pink and also embossed just the top above the 
I used a Spellbinders Celebrations pierced square die to cut out my image and mounted on
black cardstock and raised with fun foam.  I added a Darice Symetrical Swirl die cut
to the top of my image and added Wild Orchard Crafts mini sweetheart blossoms.
I used another Martha Stewart punch for my sentiment to add a decorative edge.
I finished off the outside with pink gemstones in each corner.

For my inside sentiment, I have used  Stampabilities 811661

Poinsettia Macy by Digital Delights by Louby Loo

Hey everyone!
Sorry that I am running behind, but I have a sweet little digi

This is Poinsettia Macy.

You can find her HERE

I created a tag base and just began adding elements as I wasn't sure what
direction I really wanted to go in.  But my lack of knowing has turned
into a little piece that I am proud of.
Sometimes we all get a creativity block and this was one of those times.

The tree, snowflake and flourish came from Cricut Design Space Library.
My lace rosette was just a left over piece of lace I wrapped around to form
a rosette and added a poinsettia the center to go with my girl.

I have used a mixture of copics and Prismacolor colored pencils
to color her.

You can get her in black and white or a colored image.

I hope you have enjoyed todays project!
