I just finished this Valentine's Day card for the January challenge over at Createful Heart Design. I chose the image called "Latte Love" which was perfect for sending a Valentine card to my daughter who loves coffee.  :) You can find this image, along with lots of others, in the Createful Heart Design Zibbet shop here!

The challenges are always an "anything goes" theme starting on the 15th of each month and run through the 13th of the following month. If you'd like to join or check it out, just click here!

SU - Layering Circles dies
SU - Framelits - Holiday Collection
SU - Subtle 3D Embossing Folder
SU - Braided Linen Trim 3/16"

Happy December!

Here it is, December 1st. The Christmas season has officially started and with it comes new, fun, stamping projects to share.  I decided to make some pillow boxes. These little boxes are great for jewelry, mints, or small "thinking of you" gifts!

I used two sweet little images from Kitty Bee Designs, Santa Owl and Santa Kal-Bee. The great thing about digital images is that you can make them any size you need them to be. Being small pillow boxes, it was perfect using digital images to keep the image small for the boxes. Here's a list of what I used to make them.

MFT - Square Pillow Box Die-namic
Elizabeth Craft Designs - Sprig w/berries die
SU - Garden Green and Baroque Burgundy card stock
The Paper Studio - Stitched Holly DP
SU - 3/8" Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon
Copics - Various Colors
Snowflake Embellishments

Well, it's that time of year again. Time to make cards and gifts for the Christmas holiday season. I am sharing with you today a Christmas packet I've made that all coordinates with each other.

 The one on the left is a gift tag, the center piece is a matching Christmas card, and the item on the right is a gift card holder. It was a fun set to make once I decided what papers I was going to use.
Thanks for stopping by!
