quick and easy handmade ornaments

Today I have some really quick and easy ornaments to share with you:

I found the wood/burlap ornaments at a craft store and just added some chipboard bits, sequins and cards/stickers from the Fancy Pants Oh Deer! collection. 

As we prep for the holidays time to craft is so rare. 

Quick projects are a must!

happy, happy holidays to you!

Naughty or Nice??

 Hello again!

We are now only a week away from Christmas Day!

Can you believe it?

I don't think I am any further ahead than I was the last time I talked about this. ☺

Today, though, I have a fun layout that will hopefully make you smile. I made it for Fancy Pants using the cute Oh Deer! collection:

Have a very Merry Christmas!

Christmas Cheer


Today I have a new layout to share with you that I made for Noel Mignon:

This kit has a mix of Fancy Pants, Pink Paislee, Elle's Studio, Maya Road, Pebbles and others. 

I am not a stamper, really, but liked the stamp set in this kit so much that I used it to add some little stars to the background of my page. 

Have a great day!

easy Christmas gift bag

I've been sharing the projects that I created for my guest post for Pebbles Inc. 

I will finish off today by sharing a really easy way to dress up a plain kraft gift bag. 

I used the Home for Christmas collection from Pebbles Inc. 

This cute red and white felt garland was my favorite part of the collection. 

Isn't it cute? 

Have a great day!

easy Home for Christmas tree ornaments

Handmade ornaments are a fun way to dress up a Christmas tree.

I made these paper ornaments using some Silhouette cut files and the Home for Christmas collection from Pebbles Inc.

These ornaments took just minutes to make. The part that took the longest was cutting them out on my Silhouette Cameo. After that I assembled them and added either twine or gold ribbon. 

This star was my favorite. 

I hope that you are enjoying this beautiful holiday season.

Cable Knit kit handmade gift bags

Hello again!

I have some quick handmade gift bags to share with you today.

I made these using the Cable Knit kit from Noel Mignon.

I always love Christmas kits and this one is incredible, so full of so many beautiful things.

I used a simple kraft gift bag as the base and then used some patterned paper, lace tape (one of my favorite parts of the kit!) and some miscellaneous embellishments. 

For this one I used lots of Maya Road lace tape and cut the poinsettia from a Jillibean Soup card. 

For this one I used my deer head punch, some Fancy Pants paper and stickers and more red lace tape from Maya Road.

quick cards for Christmas

Today I have a couple of cards to share with you that I made for my Pebbles Inc guest designer post:

These cards were made quick & easy by using premade embellishments like the cardstock shapes and 4x3 cards. I added a paper doily and some twine, some gold glitter glue accents and that was it!

With as busy as things are this time of year quick and easy is essential for me. 

Have a great weekend!

Home for Christmas Pebbles guest designer

Good morning!

I had the privilege of guest designing for Pebbles Inc. this month and have some projects I'd like to share with you.

The first thing I'll share from the projects I created is this layout:

These pictures are from last year's performance of Ballet Lubbock's The Nutcracker. We had a chance to meet a lot of the cast and for the kids to get autographs after the show.

For this page I used the Home For Christmas line from Pebbles Inc. My favorite parts of the collection are the candycane striped Thickers and the fun felt garland. 

I will be back to share more projects tomorrow!
