Christmas Crush Day 20

Well TGIF I say.  It’s been a long week and I get a 3 day weekend.  I decided to take the day off tomorrow to observe Remembrance Day.  We have ceremonies in the morning so it I feel it will be nice to pay my respects to those who have protected me in my amazing country.  Of course we all will remember and reflect of the sacrifices that were made.  I say to anyone who is in service now and who has made sacrifices for me, Thank you.  I am humbled.

Today’s project would be an excellent one to give to someone special.  A fancy lidded box with a little tip from the Amazing Connie Stewart who thought of an amazing simple tool to help with lidded boxes.  Check out the video if you want to know more.

Christmas Crush Day 10

Hi there.  TGIF!!!  I have a really cute box to share with you today.  I am using my amazing new Specialty Designer Series Paper again.  I seriously can’t get enough of this stuff.  When I was editing the video I thought to myself that for the embellishment (bow) I could have used the new Year of Cheer Washi tape instead of the little strip of foil I used.  You will see in the video but I wanted to state it here that there could be an alternative.  Have you seen the new washi tapes yet?  They are glorious and I highly recommend that you grab some before they retire at the end of December.  I know, we all have too much washi tape but seriously…this stuff is beautiful.

I have been including a shopping link every post during this series because I have had a few people have trouble searching for my name in the online store.  I hope that by placing a one stop shopping button front and center that it helps a few people with their trouble. Did you know that the online store is open 24/7?  Yep, you can shop in your pajamas if you want.  Click the button below to head to the online store.

Here is the project for today.  I hope you give this one a try…it was a seriously quick project.

Christmas Crush – Day 15 – Project Sparkle Box

Hi there.  Hope you are happy and healthy.  Today is a project using the Envelope Punch Board.  I really love this tool and find that I make more projects with it than envelopes. However, that corner rounder serves wonderfully for card making as well.  Most versatile tool?  I would have to agree.  So, let’s celebrate this tool with a project…yay!
