Have Yourself A Merry Christmas

Hello everyone! I hope that you are well. I cannot believe how quickly the time is passing and Christmas is coming. I have another Christmas card to share with you, featuring some dies. I love cabins and houses, so this was fun for me to make.

It uses some old and new products from my stash. I cut the frame from foam, and adhered my cardstock to the top, to elevate the frame and add extra dimension. I also added some foam to my sentiment, to create added interest to the card.

Cardstock: Kaisercraft CD 324 Crimson, CD 349 Arctic, CD 308 Bark, CD 309 Cinnamon, CD359 Spearmint, CD108 Coffee Bean, CD 301 Snow

Dies: Sizzix Bell Jar Diorama, My Favourite Things Rectangle Frame, Die-namics Fishtail flags

Stamp: Kaisercraft: CS336 First Noel

Ink: Versafine Onyx Black

Spellbinders M-Bossabilities Holiday Magic
Other: Wink of Stella, foam

Poinsettia Bloom Cards


Hello everyone! I hope that you have been enjoying your week. I am enjoying my school holidays and am now sitting down to create some more Christmas cards before school goes back. I really loved this die set once it was released and was eager to make a card or two with it. I used some new and old dies from my stash to create my card. I experimented with cardstock, as I planned to ink blend as was shown on the Spellbinders video. I had the most success using white cardstock and using distress ink for the entire bloom.

I wanted to use a decorate edge, to break up the white, so I used an old Spellbinders border die to achieve this. I love the elegant feel this card has.

This time I wanted to use some of my patterned papers in my card and I decided that I wanted a vintage styled card. Once I decided on my papers, I inked my bloom the same way and I used a different edge die to break up the background.

I used  a script stamp and stamped it in random placed to add an aged feel to my paper. I also added vintage photo distress ink to all of my layers as well.

I am so glad I purchased this die set. It is versatile and so great to use.

Believe in the Magic of Christmas

Hello everyone! I have another Christmas card to share with you. This is from my Spellbinders shopping spree. It is a stitched ornament display card. I love stitching and this card fuels my love of two crafts, stitching and cardmaking!

The dies come with a pop up stand configuration, which I decorated with patterned paper from a past Kaisercraft release. I used the label strip as my sentiment. I stitched the ornament die using DMC thread.

Merry and Bright


Hello everyone! I have started making some Christmas cards...trying to get a head start before time gets away. I bought some dies from Spellbinders (when they were on sale....postage was very expensive) but really loved the release. This is the Nordic range which I was really drawn too.

I used a Spellbinders embossing folder from my stash and lots of Kaisercard to create the die cuts that are part of the inlay of the ornaments. I used a frame from my stash and used gold card stock to create an elegant feel.


Dies: Spellbinders Nordic ornaments, 5 x 7 heirloom legacy, Memory Box Crisp Bows, Spellbinders M-Bossabililites

Paper: Kaisercard Navy CD606, Crimson CD323, Cornflower CD345, Coastal CD346, Blueberry CD343, Bloom CD 330, Rose CD321 and gold matte cardstock

Wreath Swap - Home is Where the Wreath Is


Hello everyone! I hope you are having a wonderful week. Today I am sharing a project that I have been so happy to complete. It is called Wreath Swap. It is a series created by Stitching With the Housewives. You can purchase other patterns to swap the 'O' with decorative patterns to suit different occassions. You start with pattern one which is Home is where the wreath is, then build on with the wreath swap patterns.

To finish the cross stitch, I followed the finishing tutorial on the Stitching With the Housewives channel.

I purchased my frame from Kmart as we don't have Hobby Lobby in Australia.

Baby Card


Hello everyone! It has been a little while since I have posted. I have been busy and have neglected my blog and social media as a result. I have been creating in the background, but projects that take a bit more time and I will be sharing those soon. But today I am sharing a card that I made for grade partner who had a baby girl a few months ago. Of course I went with the vintage style which I love.

I used Maja Design papers and I used some die cuts to decorate along with some coordinating blooms from my stash. She loved the card and placed it the nursery.

As always, stay safe and well.

Celebrate Today

Hello everyone! I hope that you are well. Today I am sharing a wedding card that I made for a family friend. I selected navy blue as it was the colour of the brides maids.

I added some vintage touches that I hope added something special, so that this card can be a keepsake for the special day. I used Maja Design papers, Prima flowers and goodies from my stash!
