Wintery Christmastime fun!

Hey everyone! The Holidays are such a fun time! I have been busy coming up with small little cards and gifts for all of our kid's school teachers, Sunday School teachers, family and friends. Here are a few little ideas for you:

Merry and Bright ornament.
3 Birds Must Have Textured Cardstock
3 Birds 3D Sticker Embellishment Kit
3 Birds Opposites Attract Winter Edition rubons and chipboard element.

My next two projects used the 3 Birds cardstock and 3d stickers. I also used some of the rubons from the opposites attract winter edition.

Winter Work!

With snow on the ground, sub zero temperatures, and more snow in the forecast I decided to scrap some snow pictures. Plus I had these adorable photos of my puppy Zoey just waiting to be scrapped. And I couldn't think of a better background paper then this 3birds snow design from the Focus on Photos pack. I added some stickles to the snow swirls for a touch of glitter and used 3birds foil cardstock for my title and the foil diecut border swirl to match. And of course I had to use the papertrails snowflake border as well! I just added a few punched out snowflakes, and I had a fantastic winter layout!

How About A Little Bit Of Summer?

Since so much of us is overwhelmed with a ton of snow in our neck of the woods I thought I'd bring back a little bit of summer so that we can all relive the nostalgia of warmer days and remember that this cold weather will pass and warmer days will come again soon!

For this layout I used a bunch of different 3 Birds products. Mixing and matching of products is ok in my book and it should be for you too! Feel free to experiment, you'll love the results!

Here's my materials list:

Must Have Textured Cardstock
3D Sticker Embellishment Kit
Garden of Flowers Felt and Fabric Kit
Sparkly Shapes Kit
Focus On Photos Scrapbook Kit
Paper trails Die Cut Cardstock Borders

To create the arrow shaped banner is really easy! Sometimes we love a certain embellishment but feel that the colors don't quite match. I simply turned the Border Strip over to reveal the white side and inked it using my favorite dye ink. Voila, an instant, one of a kind embellishment that works perfectly with my color palette!

Thanks for stopping by! Now get scrapping!

Christmas crunch time

I don't know about you but I still have all of my wrapping to do! So to get started I made some tags.

I die cut the tags using the Opposites Attract Winter cardstock for the base and added stcikers from the 3D sticker pack to add embellishment.

Crazy for Cards!

I love to make cards! First of all they only take up a small amount of time & I love to give handmade cards to friends and family. 3birds makes it so easy to make cards with all of their adorable embellies. For my first card I used the 3birds 3-D embellishments. These are fantastic on cards and add so much character! Plus there are so many to choose from. My next card used one of the 3birds monograms and a great star border from the papertrails collection. Hope you like them!

A Beautiful Day...

with 3Birds! Isn't it always? LOL I just love the bright happy colors in the Straight From The Nest pp pack, so I had to make another LO using them. And of course, no LO is complete without some of the Sticker Nestables!! The circles are my absolute favorite.

And...drumroll....I did get to use my Cricut! For the very first time! As promised ;) I used the Straight From The Nest cartridge and made the leaves on the LO. Aren't they cute? And sooo much cheaper than buying pre-made ones. I didn't really know what I was doing, so I don't think I set the blade to cut deep enough. Which actually turned out even better - I really like how the blade didn't cut all the way through the middle leaf veins part - it would have been something that was supposed to pop out and leave a hole, but I like that it kind of scratched the surface instead to give it more interest. Who's proud of me for using my Cricut for the first time?! :)
