Redneck Christmas

A friend of mine asked me to design a Christmas card for them.  They wanted to do a redneck Christmas theme this year since they were hosting Christmas for the family.  She asked me for assistance on the card design.  She said she was thinking lights, trailer and antlers…. Here is what I came up with.

Redneck Christmas

I used my Silhouette to cut all the shapes – the trailer, antlers and lights.  The snow is actually liquid applique which added a nice touch.  She was thrilled with the design now I can’t wait to here how it goes.

Happy Crafting!

Merry & Bright

I know it seems really early to be featuring Christmas layouts since we have not even gotten to Halloween yet.  I hear you and totally understand.  The great news is when you scrapbook you can pick any event, holiday or occasion and celebrated at any time.  I have just been inspired by the new Holiday from the Heart Gift Guide and having so much fun designing.

For the tittle I used silver embossing powder and ruby ink.  To achieve this two color look I used masking tape to mask off the parts of the stamp while I did each.

I have been really inspired by the new Sparkle & Shine paper.  It seemed effortless to create a series of layouts using this new paper pack.  The colors are so fun and that shimmer is so cool.

The stars with the Sparkle & Shine WOTG stamp set add a fun festive touch.

The Sparkle and shine dimensional complements are just the right touch.  I topped off the ornaments with a bit of bakers twine.

For this page I cut the title “Believe in the Magic” on my Silhouette using Juniper cardstock.  I used the Sparkle & Shine Washi tape for ribbon on the tag.

The shimmer of the silver washi tape is so awesome.  I also love how all of the Sparkle & Shine paper has that wonderful simmer too.

Hope you enjoy all of the participants artwork.

Christmas Album

Check out this adorable Christmas themed album.  This could be an easy way to get some of these wonderful Christmas photos in an album. The album could be a gift for a family member or it can become a treasured piece you display every holiday.  I designed this album as a kit for a friend who is hosting the workshop at her house. If you cannot attend or would like to purchase the kit so  you can do on your own is an option too. 

To sign up for this workshop Cat must receive your order and payment by October 30th at 6 pm.  This way all the product can be ordered and you can take advantage of the October Stamp of the month, which is a Christmas stamp set.

This workshop is using the My Creations  Bookmark Album.   The album is roughly 4” x 8” with 6 different pages plus the front and back cover.  The album is made of chipboard and has a magnetic closure and 2 binder rings. We will be adding a lot of embellishments to this album so you will learn how to modify this album to accommodate that.

Basic Kit:

The kit will include the Bookmark Album, the larger binder rings, Cranberry bakers twine, brads, ribbon to embellish.  The paper to be include will be half of the Pear & Partridge paper pack which will include one of each of the pattern papers shown here and one sheet of Olive, Cranberry, Cashmere, and Desert Sand cardstock.  You will also receive the velvet rub-ons and directions for $27 (this includes tax and shipping)



There are also several add ons which were used including Just Bloom Flowers and Buttons.  If you wish to put the kit together on your one you will need to purchase a few additional items.  All of the following stamp sets were used in creating the album:

– Merry and Bright

– The stamp set from the WOTG Pear and Partridge scrapbook kit

– October’s Stamp of the Month

– Inks: Desert Sands, Cranberry, Black and Olive

If you are interested in purchasing the kit please contact me as I do have some options to offer you the best pricing. The kit will come with colored photos and instructions on how to assemble.
