12 Days of Holiday Cards and Crafts: Day 5 – Snowman card

day5_Snowman1Good morning and welcome to day five of my 12 Days of Holiday Cards and Crafts! Today I bring you two snowman cards.  This is a new Stampendous stamp called Snowman Woodland. It comes with a scene and everything but I chose to crop the snowman to make him look like he is looking through a window.

day5_Snowman2Fort the first card I used Echo Park’s Tis the Season paper and the second one I used Crate Paper’s Peppermint.  I enjoyed using pink which is not the typical holiday color but after I put it together I really like it. I bought a bunch of glitter paper on sale weeks back at Michaels’ with my friend Joan and Cathy with the intention of using it with my Silhouette.  So I cut the window out of glitter paper on my Silhouette. I use my Silhouette for so much. It has truly been one of the best purchases I have made. Endless possibilities.

day5_Snowman3Here is a picture of them side by side. Don’t you love the pink? I love it? It just might not go out to anyone.  Oh did I just type that? I meant, careful consideration will be taken before mailing it off.

Props today…just my shelfs in my craft room and then the last two photos I put them on the carpet.

Tomorrow I am going to an all day crop with my girlfriends and going to meet my dear friend’s new baby Rosie. So I will have more crafting time which I feel I can use this time of year when the holiday starts to whip me around like a rag doll.

Have a blessed weekend and I will be back on Monday with day 6 of my  12 Days of Holiday Cards and Crafts.


Confessions of a Scrapbook Kit Hoarder…#5

Hello Everyone!

Welcome to my new blog series, “Confessions of a Scrapbook Kit Hoarder“. If you haven’t already, please read The Intervention so you can understand the inspiration for this craft project.

My second card from the September kit

My second card from the September kit

Today I wanted to share my second card I made using the September kit. I used one of my stamps from Flourishes.  I love Flourishes stamps. They are so elegant and fun to color. I also used one of my cute border dies that shhh I have had for a year and hadn’t cracked the seal!! So I am now seeing the benefits of this challenge in other ares of my stash.  Great news for me.

I will be back on Monday with another project and hopefully a wrap up of my September kit so I can start planning and work on the October kit… No pressure right?

Have a fabulous weekend and keep crafting!!
