It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas

Hello, my crafty peeps! Happy Friday and happy March 1st! Can you believe it?! A new challenge is live this morning over at Merry Little Christmas Challenge Blog and I’m excited to share my DT inspiration project for MLCCB #8 – March Anything Christmas Goes! Anybody who knows me knows that I’m a sucker for fancy folds and am always looking for new ones to try. My inspiration for this very cool hanging reverse fold origami card (also called a squash card) came from one of my YouTube subscriptions HERE. Sam is one talented lady, and I could sit for hours watching her videos!

I created this card for my sister – it’s something she’ll be able to use year after year. And it’s contained in it’s own little decorated box! She loved it and showed it off to her crafty lady friends, lol!

2018_09030001a

The paper reminds me of a flannel shirt. I paired it with green crinkled paper which looks great on the white cardstock.

2018_09030002a

Here’s the lid off the box…

2018_09030003a

… and the card out of the box. I even decorated the inside, lol!

2018_09030004a

There are quite a few stamped and die cut Christmas sentiments as well as Christmas stickers used. I don’t typically use stickers on my projects but the ones I used on this came in the Photo Play paper packs and I just couldn’t resist. They are so stinkin’ cute!

2018_09030005a

Here’s a shot of the entire card hanging on the wall. It’s about 2-1/2 feet long!

2018_09030006a

And here are shots of the different sections. This was so much fun!

And here’s a shot of the back of it when it’s all folded up, which is actually the very bottom portion. LOVE how this turned out – I’m thinking I’ll be making more of these for Christmas this year!

Be Silly wall hanging

Hi everyone! Happy Friday… doing the *happy dance*… Fridays are my most favorite day of the week! And today starts a new challenge over at Polkadoodles! I’m thrilled to share my DT inspiration project for Wk 7 – Anything Goes! I created a fun ‘Be Silly’ wall hanging that’s hanging in my studio to remind me that I don’t have to be serious all the time! ;) This is my last post for Polkadoodles. I’ve made the difficult decision to step down because of too many obligations right now. I’d like to thank Jan and the gang for having me along for the past several months – I’ve thoroughly enjoyed myself!

2019_0202001a

I don’t think I’ve ever mentioned that even though all Polkadoodles challenges are ‘anything goes’, our design teams are challenged each week with a specific theme. This week it’s “Recycle” so I recycled the thick cardboard backing from a package of cardstock to use as the base for my wall hanging. All of the elements (image, papers, sentiment, bow and flowers) are from the amazing Octavia Moonfly Big Kahuna Digital Craft Download Bundle. Be sure to check it out… you will NOT be disappointed! :)

2019_0202002a

I colored the fairy image with a new set of alcohol markers that I recently purchased (and still adding colors as they become available), and used dies from several of my favorite sets to cut a background panel, the focal image and the sentiment. I also used some fabric ribbon, flat back pearls and flower brads from my stash. This was so much fun putting together!

2019_0202003a

I’d love to enter this adorable wall hanging into the following challenges:

thank you gift box

Hi everyone! Happy New Year! It’s hard to believe 2018 is now behind us! It’s time for another fun challenge over at Love To Craft Challenge Blog and I’m super stoked to share my DT inspiration project for LTCCB #30 – January Anything Goes! I created a gorgeous napkin fold gift box for a good friend to express how lucky I am to have her in my life. She is a fellow crafter and someone who is always there for me.

2018_09030001a

I fell madly in love with this gift box when I discovered it on one of my YouTube channel subscriptions HERE. Of course, I added my own twists to make it mine, and my friend has already received it so I’m not spoiling any surprises, lol! I used gorgeous Stampin’ Up paper and cardstock. I stamped and embossed a layered die cut that I placed on the top (and another one inside).

2018_09030002a

Here’s a shot with the lid off the box so you can see the napkin fold detail inside.

2018_09030003a

And it’s unfolding…

2018_09030004a

Unfolding a little more…

2018_09030005a

And completely unfolded to reveal another stamped, embossed and layered die cut in the bottom of the box. I tucked in a handmade bracelet to send to my friend. ;)

2018_09030006a

And one final look… I’m so smitten with this! I can certainly see more of these in my future, lol!

to a great friend

Hi everyone! Happy Hump Day! Well, we’re just shy of six weeks until Christmas! I love the cool weather and the wonderful sights and sounds! Thanksgiving and Christmas are definitely my two favorite holidays! Today is my post day on the Simply Crafty SVGs Blog and I’m excited to share my DT inspiration project with you, an awesome little gift box created with the Simply Crafty SVGs Craft Tote Bag cut file. I can’t tell you how much fun this was to put together!

2018_09090010a

Other than the main box which used a larger sheet of cardstock, I used quite a few scraps which I’m always happy to do. I stamped a sentiment in black ink on the blank word frame that’s included in the file. Here are a few shots from different angles, showing the handle extended (yes, it goes up and down!), the fun little pieces of cardstock in one side pocket, and rolls of vinyl, glue and scissors in the the other side pocket!
