My project today is a beautiful Ball Jar full of Sea Salt Bath Crystals. I created this at one of my Suzy West Classes at Prima. And I am in LOVE with it. I plan on giving it away, but to be honest I am having a really hard time letting it go. LOL!
 
 

I love the use of Chalkboard Paint around the jar and then adding fabric and twine. The pin cushion on top is so cute, especially with all the added pins, buttons, and flower.

 
But the real show stopper is the front. The poinsettias are beautiful with an added pin
and a cute Julie Nutting mini doll dangling.
Now who to give this to.....hmmmm.....
 
 

Up next is my crafty friend Linda!!

Here is our complete line up in case you get lost along the way:
 
We wish you all a Very Merry Christmas!

Hello Crafty friends!!!
Today I am taking a step back in time
 to share with you one of my favorite boy layouts
created with SVG files by Miss Kate Cuttables.
 
In October I was lucky enough to guest design for them and I am really fond of my creation, but for what ever reasons not many people saw it, so I figure it's time to bring it back to say "Hey check me out!" LOL!
 
 My project was created using the
Adventure Time 
Pick yours up (HERE)

Adventure Time SVG files vacation svg files vacation svg cut files free svgs scrapbooking cardmaking
I used this amazing file to create this adorable layout using 
Adventure Time!

My photo is of my kids and their cousin 
in front of the Indiana Jones Temple of Dome at Disneyland!
Collin was finally tall enough to ride and we needed to document this occasion
because this is one of our favorite rides!
 

Here is a close UP of the title! I love the postage stamp. So fun!! 
 

I love the rich colors in this Simple Stories Paper Line. They worked perfectly for this great file. I added a little ink for distressing and some gold sequin to add a magical touch.
 
I'm taking a leap and trying out for the Miss Kate Design Team. Keep your fingers crossed for me. I love her files!! It would be an honor to be on such an amazing team.

Thanks for coming by today! Hope I inspired you to create something amazing today too!
Scrappy Hugs!

Welcome to the 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop!

This is final day of this amazing hop and I am a special guest designer for it today.

 Be sure to start at the beginning with  LISA'S BLOG!  


This hop is every day from November 24th through December 5th, 2014. 


AND

There will be a TON of inspiration throughout this hop to help you get your Holiday crafting done!


Here's my project!

Pinecone Press Holiday Slider Card

 



These slider cards are super fun to create. Pine Cone Press sells them in packages and they also sell the adorable sheets with themes you can cut to decorate them with. Of course you can decorate them with any thing you wish but when I bought my cards at the Expo I received the sheets free.
 
I am determined to create an SVG file for these as well as a You Tube Tuesday Video so stay tuned!!!
 
 Just imagine how cute a gift card will look attached to the right panel of this slider card. I added a pretty Prima Lace Flower and some bling to my card.
 
Merry Christmas!!

 

Next up is Madge!!
Can't wait to see what she created!

Here is the lineup in case you get lost!!!

Here's my project!
Chalkboard Painted Holiday Balls
 
 
These gorgeous ornaments were made using Prima Chalk Board Paints. We painted the outside with 2 coats and let them dry. Then for the glossy effect we sealed them in with Prima Soft Gel Gloss.
After they were completely dry I hot glued the embroidered flowers and rhinestones on. Add some Tulle to hang them from and they are ready to decorate your tree.
 
Next up is Shawnee!
Can't wait to see what she created!
