Tis The Season with Lisa

Happy Friday, everyone! Lisa from The Relativity of Paper taking over the blog today with my first Christmas Project. It's been two years since I've used the Mourner's Hat from the JGW Raven Quest Kit to create a Christmas Top Hat. 


I originally made this hat for my Mother and she used it for two years. And then I said "Mom, it's time to let it go", it was becoming a little worn. She insisted that I make another one to replace it, I agreed and here we are.  I used DCWV Merry Memories Stack and the embellishments are repurposed from an old "designer" tree she had. 





And here's the original hat from two years ago and a link to that post, The Magic of Christmas. 

Here's to a wonderful Holiday Season! 


As always, thanks for joining us today!

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving!
And then its my most favorite time of the year.


Tracy here from the Idea Closet and I love counting down for Christmas; every year we do a few different advents.

This year I used the Calendar Blocks from SVG Attic, Santa Cant Wait,  to create count down blocks.

This was such a fun project and there is so many ways to decorate it.

For the words, instead of the months, I printed "Here Comes Santa" and placed it on the front block.



The instructions to put this project together can be found here.

And the best part...


...I can use the blocks as dice when we play our white elephant game at the family party.

I hope you enjoyed this project and give it a try.

Christmas Cookies with Beth

Good Monday Morning!  Beth from Beth's Beauties here.  I recently was baking Christmas cookies to freeze for next month, and that spurred me to create this set of projects for you today!  All of the files are from SVG Attic's JGW Mama Kringle's Kitchen.
 The Pretzel card was quick to assemble.  I inked around the cuts with brown chalk ink for extra dimension.
 I also inked around the cuts on the tart (or as I like to see it, pie!) card.  For the topping, I brushed Crackle Accents on it and added glitter.  It really looks like a pie crust that is crackled and glittery with sugar!
 I also made the ribbon box from that set to hold some cookies!  You can find the tutorial for assembling this box HERE.  All patterned papers on these projects are from DCWV's Hand Painted Christmas stack.
Here is the inside of the box.  It fit 9 cookies inside!  If you are interested in the recipe for these White Chocolate Peppermint Pudding cookies, head on over to my blog for the details.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Christmas Dress Form ~ with Cyndy G

Hello today I am bringing you a project I made with files from SVG Attic.  I created this beautiful Christmas Dress Form using the dressmakers mannequin and mannequin skirt cage from the JGW Just Sew kit, the branches of the Noble Fir from the O Christmas Tree SVGA kit and the Poinsettias from JGW Poinsettia Passion.

Dress Form

The paper I used is DCWV Cranberry Christmas - it is just beautiful.  I got it at Michaels and it will be on sale next week for $5.  What a great deal!



Thank you for stopping by.

Snow Flurries ahead

Hello all I-team member Sonja here with my latest project. Really the only part of winter I look forward to is when I get to pull my snow globes out! In honor of them, I decided to make this snow globe from the JGW Snow Flurries set with a little extra kick to it at the end.
JGW Snow flurries
When I saw the globe, I knew right away that I wanted to do the snowman in vellum. However, vellum can be a little tender to work with if glue is involved. To prevent the vellum from shriveling up, I wanted to use my tape gun to adhere the hands. But then, *light bulb*, hello I have the Xyron Sticker Maker! I use this little handy dandy object for small projects just like this. 

 I ran the arms through the sticker maker
Before peeling off the top layer, I rubbed around each element with a sharp end of a pencil to eliminate any extra tape.
 The final project came out well with some added snowflake embellishments.

The bottom of the globe is a box to add any extra goodies to. However, I wanted to add a different kind of goody to it.
On my Christmas globes, many of them have lights and blowers in them. To replicate that, I added a hole to the top plate of the box.
 Then I added a little tea light.

Materials Used: 

DCWV Cranberry Christmas stack
SVG Attic JGW Snow Flurries file
Xyron Create a sticker Model 150
Silhouette Cameo 3
Silhouette Studio~Designers Edition
Aleene's Original Tacky Glue
Craftwell eBrush
Gray Sharpie Marker

Winter Fun

Hello! If you're anything like me, you can't wait for the white gold to start falling and for Jack Frost to make nature sparkle and glitter. Winter is definitely my favorite season (that is when it behaves the way it should and not the foggy, rainy, warm winter) so that is what it's all about today.
 
I just couldn't help myself to make the cute Igloo from the SDS Frosty Friends kit
 

It is made out of AC Cardstock in White and Blueberry and decorated with Sparkle Paper in White and Maja Design Paper "Joyous Winterdays". Just follow the instructions found here and you'll be all set - easy peasy!
 
I also wanted the Igloo to look inhabited, so I made a small sled for the owner.
 
 
The sled is from the JGW Made of Snow kit. It's made of AC Cardstock in Chocolate, Slate and Black along with some wood patterned paper from KaiserKraft. I used a tiny black brad for the steering pad and some twine. The small rivets are made from small dots of Enamel Accent from Tim Holtz. I did size this one down to match the size of the Igloo. You find the tutorial for the sled here.
 
The owner is also keen on skis, so I made him a pair from the JGW Winter Wonderland Wreath
 

These skis are made a bit bigger to match the size of the Igloo and sled and are made from AC Cardstock in Chocolate and Charcoal and with patterned paper from KaiserKraft. These are soooo easy to make and you find the tutorial here.

At night the igloo lights up with a cozy light ;-)

 
 
So now the small but lucky owner of the Igloo is ready for the upcoming frosty season and I look forward to many more cool and glittery projects in my warm and cozy craft room :-)
 
Thanks for visiting today - please leave a small comment on your way out <3

Oh and enjoy this small video
