Day 2 of the Twelve Days of Christmas

 Hi Friends, Today I have for you, a One Sheet Wonder to create 10, yes 10 Christmas Cards from one sheet of 12x12 Designer Paper or double-sided printed paper. This is not my idea; it is one I found on Glenda Calkins blog. She also has a you tube video on how to make the cards I'm showing you.  I made 2each of three of the fun folds, 1 ea of 2 different fun folds, and 2 regular cards. Here is the template I used . This comes from Glenda's Calkin's Blog....Thank you Glendađź’– What's different from her cards is that I chose to stamp sentiments on the inside of my cards so I used two Stamp Sets from Stampin' Up...  Supplies I Used: Designers Series Paper I used, Peaceful Prints, use what you have and match your cardstock to the paper. I'm just showing you what I used. Black Cardstock Basic White Cardstock Oval Punch or die Scalloped Oval Punch or die Reindeer Punch or die Garden Green Ink Black Ink Stamp sets{ Peaceful Deer and Christmas to Remember) Splatter from

Day One of the Twelve Days of Christmas...Join me Won't You?

Hi Friends, Come along with me for some fun... I thought for the our first project we could do a   Ghiradelli chocolate treat holder! This little matchbook-style box holds two chocolate squares and is easy to put together. These are fun to give out to cashiers and just about anybody when your out and about doing your errands and it's sure to put a smile on their face. My Elf says "this is the season of jolly and Falalala"! You can use any color cardstock I used Blushing Bride because it matched my designer paper. I used products from Stampin'Up. Ghirardelli Chocolate Treat Holder Measurements and Details:   Blushing Bride Cardstock: 10” x 3”  On the long side, score at 3-1/4” 6-1/2” and 7-1/4”  Die cut a 2-1/2” x 1-1/8” Stitched Rectangle from the Blushing Bride cardstock, leaving a 1/4” strip of cardstock between the die cut rectangle and the edge.

What have I Been Up To?

Hi Friends, Well it's been a long time since I've been here on my blog. The reason being I lost my love of crafting. I've been struggling for awhile and even though I've been still purchasing all my favorite crafting products, in hopes of regaining my love for paper crafts and stamping, the truth is all I'm doing is accumulating stuff and still not making anything. So I've decided to give up direct selling completely. I haven't done classes for a very long time, nor do I sell products, I stayed in as a hobbiest and bought for myself meeting quotas to stay active. This is where I'm at right now. This blog is to help me get back to crafting for me. Come along if you like, if not, that's ok too. I have recently started to make some cards to send this year for Christmas. In the next few days I will begin posting some of the cards I've made. I will also start removing things from my blog that are of no use. This is now my hobby blog, where I can po
