Wow! Christmas is coming up quick! While I do love many things about Christmas (especially the real reason for the season), the abundance of red is just not my style. So, going with a completely non-traditional color scheme of blues, browns, and golds, I created this watercolor Christmas card set: Since I was creating a card set, I did everything assembly-line style. I started out by stamping the focal image on several pieces of watercolor paper. Next, I added a few highlights with some quick watercolor. I then hand placed a few small star-shaped sequins, […]
Hello: We had a wonderful time at Thanksgiving and I made this card for my son and daughter-in-law with whom we spent the holiday. I used The Twinery twine in the place of a ribbon on my card. This was a fun one to make. Check out The Twinery store for all your twinetastic needs. Here is a close of up the matching envelope. Hugs, Anita
Hello!! This is Amy here and today it is Thanksgiving in the USA. It is my favorite holiday because of all the yummy food and that it also ushers in the Christmas season.

I started with a panel of cardstock that was just a little bit bigger than the window opening of the die cut. I […]
It’s Tobi here, and today I’m sharing a little treat bag! It’s fun to switch up projects instead of cards-cards-cards. I find it boosts my creativity when I create “projects” and it inspires me to think out of the box. This is a simple little treat bag that would be perfect for a teacher, cat-lover, or anyone who needs a kind word! I punched holes right through the bag so the contents would stay in. The twines look so pretty!!
