December Place In Time 4

Hi everyone! 

Yesterday I headed up to Topeka to Scrapbook Etc. for a Graphic 45 card class to make four cards using the December Place In Time papers.  

Today I'm sharing with you my favorite card.  I'll share the other three cards with you over the next few days. 

I just love looking through the window and seeing the children around Santa. 

We used a Darcie embossing folder to create the bricks.  I then added Vintage Photo Distress Ink to the paper to bring out the bricks.  

I forgot ask Ruth about the die cuts for the holly jolly Christmas. 

Today, I'm trying to finish up some items for a craft bazaar on Saturday and Sunday at a Catholic church in the area. 

Take care all and God bless!

Gift card holders

Hi everyone! 

It's that time of year that I begin to make gift card holders to sell at craft shows.  Besides the one I make for craft fairs, my cousin has ordered eight of them.  She want four girls and four boys.  This post shows the options she has for the girl cards.  I think they are all cute. 

Last week I spent an afternoon at Archiver's with my Silhouette machine and cut out the outsides and insides enough for 39 gift cardholders.  

On Saturday while cropping at Scrapbook Unique I completed coloring and putting together five of them.  Yesterday at Archiver's I completed another five.  On Friday, I plan to go one of the two places to make some more.   Even with the actual cardholder cut, it takes about an hour to color and image, choose coordinating papers, cut out the image and put the whole cardholder together.

Well, back to doing other things to get ready for the craft show this weekend.  

Take care and God bless!

Hi everyone! 

Here's a card I made the other day. 

It features Poppy Stamp Poinsettia and Memory Box Peace dies.  

The background paper is actually a pale blue; however, since the paper appears grey, I may have to try that combination.   I would also like to try a pale green for the leaves of the poinsettia instead of making it all pink. 

The Peace die cut was cut out of white card stock.   I also added drops of Opal Liquid Pearls.  There's also some tiny clear rhinestones on the inside of the poinsettia. 

I hove you have a blessed Sunday!  Thanks for looking.

Peace on Earth

Hi everyone! 

I'm tired, my feet hurt, and I'm stiff all over from being at the Northland Catherdal Holiday Bazaar today.  It was a fun show and profitable so I will be doing it again next year.  

Here's a card I made on Friday.  There was a very similar card that I saw on Pinterest and that was my inspiration for this one. 

This card used three Memory Box die cuts.  It also uses Stampin' Up papers and sentiment.  

I think I'm going to call it an early night.  

Have a great weekend everyone and God bless!

Be Merry

Hi everyone! 

I've been busy this week trying to get some cards and tags made for tomorrow's craft show at the Northland Catherdal.  

I'm about ready to head up to the Northland Catherdal to set up for the craft show tomorrow.  If you're in the greater KC area come up and see me.  The church is just north and west of the intersection of 152 HWY and North Oak Traffic Way.  I believe the hours are 9 to 4.   The exact address is 101 NW 99th Street. 

Before I go, I wanted to share this tag I made to be displayed at Ink Paper Rubber.  It's features one of the Prima Dolll stamps and Bo Bunny Christmas papers.  

Have a great evening and God bless!
