Christmas Tags

 Hey everyone, I'm here today with  a fun new Christmas project for Echo Park using the Hello CHristmas collection from Carta Bella Paper.  These sweet little tags are going to be perfect to add to my gifts this year.   And as an added bonus, they were quick and easy to make!

I started off by cutting the tags from the Christmas Tags 12x12 paper. This paper has 40 tags on it!!  You can pick and choose which ones you like best...or use them all!  I then added some small embellishments to the tags.  I used chipboard pieces, stickers, puffy stickers and enamel dots.

To finish them off, I punched a hole and added a piece of twine. These are the perfect way to add a personal touch to your gifts without taking hours to complete a project!

Here's a fun little video I made :)

Hello Santa

Hey everyone, I'm here today with a new layout to share for Simple Stories using the Simple Vintage North Pole collection.  This is THE collection to get this year!  I mean, red, lime green and teal...yes yes yes!!!

I had this sweet photo of my son with Santa, it kinda had a vintage feel and was perfect for this collection.  I mean really, look at how Santa is holding cute!

My title is a Simple Stories cut file from the Silhouette store.  I cut it twice and layered it to make it pop.

My favorite thing about this whole collection was this little envelope!  How cute is this?  I just had to find a spot for it on my layout!

I hope you get a chance to craft with this beautiful collection!

Thanks for stopping by!

Santa Cabin

 Hey everyone, I'm here today with a new project using the A Lumberjack Christmas collection.  As soon as I saw this collection I knew what I wanted to make with it.  A Santa cabin!!!  I'm so happy with how this project turned out.  It may be the cutest thing I've ever made!

I used a cut file from the Silhouette Store.  The woodgrain paper was perfect for my cabin!  I added a bright red roof to make it festive!  I also tucked in some tissue paper in the chimney to make it look like smoke.

I made a wreath for the front door using just stickers from this collection.   It is so sweet!

This little Santa was my inspiration for this project!  I love how it looks like he's decorating his house!

A little Christmas tree and some gifts for the back of the cabin.

Christmas card trio

 Hey everyone, I'm here today sharing some festive cards using the Farmhouse Christmas collection from Carta Bella.  I wanted to make some Cards but I didn't want to spend hours making them.  Thankfully with the Echo Park dies these cards were quick and turned out really pretty!

I decided to do 3 same cards but I used different colors for each one.  One I had all the pieces cut in my Big Shot, they just needed to be assembled.

I embellished each card with a few puffy stickers and enamel dots.

I also added some stitching around the edge with my sewing machine.  These cards took me about an hour to make.  SImple and elegant!

 Hey everyone, I'm here today with a new layout to share for Simple Stories using the Simple Vintage Ancestry collection.  I was so happy when I saw this collection revealed.  It is absolutely gorgeous and I had the perfect photos of my grandparents on their 60th wedding anniversary.

I added a lot of layers on this layout.  Stickers, ephemera, chipboard, brads...I used all the things!  I also used a lot of 3D foam squares so everything wouldn't be flat.

The foam stickers are so much fun to use and make the perfect title pieces.  I also like to add some loose threads on my layouts, just to add a bit of texture.

There are so many great stickers in this collection.  The one I used on the bottom of my layout was so awesome, I only added a couple of little extras to it.

I love a collection that has so many beautiful embellishments!  This layout took no time to make...well after I finally decided which embellishments to use! 

Thanks for stopping by!
