Ornaments - The Cutting Cafe

Hi Everyone,

I wanted to share a project that I completed for the design team over at The Cutting Cafe.  This weeks challenge was to use the Christmas Ornament Fun file.  This is a really fun file that can be used for soo many different things.

I used some colored copy paper as well as the Sweet Dreams Holiday Avenue stack by My Minds Eye.  Added some stickles, large eyelets, jingle bell, ribbon, flat backed pearls, a couple of flowers and a stamped sentiment.  I think these turned out oh soo cute!!!

Pics and video are below.  Thanks for stopping by and let me know what you think!

Christmas 3x3 Note Card swap w/Scrapdaworld

Hi Everyone!

Today I want to share with you all some cards that I made for a swap hosted by Tmika, who is Scrapdaworld on YouTube.  We had to make 5 cards to send out.  The cards had to be 3x3 with at least 2 embellishments.  We also had to make, or buy, envelopes for the cards.

I used The Ballet stack by DCWV and a stamp from Miss Anya Hats Off collection.  I really LOVE how these cards turned out.  I also made an envelope that had a gusset of 1/2 an inch since the card is dimensional. 

Pics and video are below.  Thanks for stopping by and let me know what you think.

So for the swap, we had to decorate the cigar box, inside and out and also include at least 6 trims.  I add some extra goodies for Crystal and she also added extra goodies for me.  I'm going to list the video of my box to Crystal, the video of me opening Crystal's box to me, and also Crystal's video of her opening my box to her.  I hope you enjoy the videos as well as what I made for Crystal and the items she made for me.  Thanks for watching!
