Christmas Pines & Merry Music DSP







Hello Hivers,

I've been playing around with this split card design. I am really loving it.  These two sets of cards are made the same with two minor differences...one is made with Whisper White cardstock with a Metallic Foil Doily and the other is Crumb Cake with a Foil Snowflake.  They both have the Merry Music DSP and the Gold 3/8" Metallic-Edge Ribbon that has been colored to match the Cherry Cobbler cardstock. 




As always, thanks for Buzzzing by the Hive today. 
Until next time....Buzzz you later.

Merry Little Christmas Memories & More Card Pack #6




Hello Hivers, 

Here's a fun card made using two of our InColors; Lemon Lime Twist and Berry Burst.  

The acetate and under layer both came from the Merry Little Christmas Memories & More Card Pack.  I added some paper from the Eastern Palace SDSP, a silver Foil Snowflake, and some Berry Burst ribbon to finish off this card.

Merry Little Christmas Memories & More Card Pack #5







Hello Hivers, 

I know the Merry Patterns Host stamp set is no longer available...but it is so cute.  I will be using it until after Christmas or a bit longer :)  The candles in this set are great for birthday cards.  

I stamped the deer in Whisper White Craft ink and the outline is in Early Espresso.  I love the shine that the Basic Black Shimmer Ribbon gives this card.  

My second card uses elements from the Card Front Builder Thinlits.  After I made the card, I had a little chuckle.  The deer look like they are lined up to run a race.  LoL  That was not my intention but I love the way the card turned out.

Merry Little Christmas Memories & More Card Pack #4



Hello Hivers, 

Today I am sharing a project that I CASE'd from the Holiday Catalog (pg. 14).  In the catalog it was part of a scrapbook page.  I turned the design into a card.  The Annual and Holiday Catalogs are great resources for inspiration.   Be sure to look at all the samples provided while making your wish list of our great products.

Merry Little Christmas Memories & More Card Pack #3





Hello Hivers, 

OMG!  I just love this image from the Seasonal Chums stamp set.  This little reindeer is super cute.  I told you...cuteness overload, right?!  When I seen this card in the Memories & More card pack, I knew right away what I wanted to do with it.  I wish the Wink of Stella would show up better on the photos.  They are so stunning in person.

Merry Little Christmas Memories & More Card Pack #1



Hello Hivers, 

This week is going to be all about the Merry Little Christmas Memories and More Card Pack.  This card pack is meant to be used for scrapbooking.  I am not a scrapbooker (I tried).  I decided to use the pack to make Christmas cards.  You can see that just by changing the DSP and background colors, you can get very different looks.  


Some of the products used:

Christmas Around the World DSP
Merry Music Specialty DSP
Glitter Enamel Dots
Layering Circles Framelits
Silver Glimmer Paper

Until next time....Buzzz you later.

Merry Music Boxed Set of Cards







Hello Hivers, 


I went all in this year.  I have been creating cards like crazy.  I've seen so many wonderful cards on Pinterest...You know I had to make them for myself.  Today's projects are no exception.

As always, I have made a few changes to my cards to make them my own.  

I used the Merry Music Specialty Designer Series Paper, Foil Snowflakes, and the 3/8" Silver Metallic-Edge Ribbon on both boxed sets.  

The Wisteria Wonder cards were created with the Christmas Pines stamp set and some retired SAB ribbon.  The Pink Pirouette cards used the Snowflake Sentiments stamp set, also with retired ribbon. 

To change the color of the 3/8" Silver Metallic-Edge Ribbon, I spritzed it with a mixture of rubbing alcohol and re-inker.  It only took about 5 minutes to dry and none of the color rubbed off.   

I used the Acetate Card Boxes #144628 to box up all the cards and envelopes.  Only four cards could fit in the box because of all the dimension.  


As always, thanks for Buzzzing by the Hive today. 
Until next time....Buzzz you later.

Lots of Love Double Z Fold Card







Hello Hivers, 

I made this card for a family member.  He hasn't been feeling well.  I thought I would send him a card to let him know I was thinking of him.  

I used the Lots of Love and Flourishing Phrases stamp sets to create this card.  I also used the Whole lot of Lovely DSP to decorate the background.

Painted Autumn Chocolate Dispenser







Hello Hivers, 

I've been seeing these cute chocolate dispensers all over Pinterest.  So I thought I would give it a try.  I watched several video tutorials, all with different measurements.  I sort of combined a few to make my box.  

I used the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper (DSP) to decorate the dispenser.  I added a little of the Old Olive 1/8" Sheer Ribbon for a pull, to open the dispenser.

Quilt Builder Framelits for Baby







Hello Hivers, 

Last month I went to a baby shower for my cousin.  This is the card I made for her.  I forgot to take a picture of the inside.  I made a little pocket to hold a gift card.  This is my first card using the Quilt Builder Framelits and the Quilt Top Textured Impression Embossing Folder.  I am very satisfied with the way it all came together.  The sentiment is from  the Vertical Greetings stamp set.  I added a few Clear Faceted Gems and some Wink of Stella and the card was complete.  I presented it in a Clear Envelope, I wanted everyone to see it.  LoL

Year of Cheer Cake Box & Cyber Monday Deal






Hello Hivers, 


I think this may be my last cake in a mug box.  I have had fun making these boxes.  I need to come up with a new packaging idea for these pouches.  

It's funny that this is the last box I am sharing because I believe it was the first one I made.  The gold heat embossed sentiment here is from The Little Things stamp set.  I added a gold Foil Snowflake to make the sentiment stand out more.  Oooo and that Gold Metallic-Edge Ribbon...It is so gorgeous.  

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my packaging for these cake mix pouches.  I have really enjoyed making them.



 Cyber Monday Deal.  24 hours only.  All orders.

Paper Pumpkin - Wonderful Winterland (November 2016)




Hello Hivers, 

Yes, you read that correctly.  This is my Paper Pumpkin kit from last year.  I never got around to putting it together.  I made sure to pull it out while I was making all, 100, of my Christmas cards for this year.  I made the cards up just as instructed.  I then added them to the front of the envelopes provided and adhered that to quarter sheet of cardstock.  I love it.  Now I wish I had more.

Count My Blessings Eclipse Card



HAPPY THANKSGIVING!




Hello Hivers, 

Today I am sharing my first attempt at making the, oh so popular, Eclipse card.  I now know that I need to tape down my Large Letters Framelits before running my cardstock through the Big Shot.  I used the Count My Blessings stamp set for the images and the word "Thanks" was created with the Brushwork Alphabet stamp set.  I colored all the images using the Stampin' Blends markers.  After everything was put together, I flicked Wink of Stella all over the card (you can't really see it in the photo).

I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Keep scrolling to see the individual pictures and templates for each project.


1.  Hershey's Nugget Box for Two

2.  Hershey's Nugget Treat Box Card

Here is the last Project.  I got the idea for this box from Linda Parker.  She made her box using 12" x 12" paper and the Envelope Punch Board.  I wanted to use 8.5" x 11" paper and I didn't use the Envelope Punch Board.  Just minor differences.
