Happy New Year

I am so happy that you chose to join me, on this the last day of 2019.

It’s been a wild ride – this past year and I do hope that 2020 is going to bring a lot more happiness than 2019 did….for me at least. I do know of 2 very happy things that are going to happen in 2020….and I look very much forward to them! What they are, you ask?

My lips are sealed! 😀

Anyways. I just wanna use this – my last post of the year – you wish you all a very Happy New Year and I hope I’ll see you again for many fun and wacky craft projects in the new year.

I really hope I’ve succeeded in inspiring some of you and bring a little joy to the rest. I had a blast with these posts and projects and I’m not about to stop!

Sending you off into 2020 with a little easy but fun project. This is the New Year Freebie from Simply Crafty Svgs: 2020 New Years Glasses

This fun and decorative file is very useful on a night like tonight. You can wear it or use it as table decoration. A very fun photo prop.

I reinforced mine by cutting 5 fronts in AC Cardstock and the number panels in DCWV patterned paper (from the Posh and Pink Stack).

I also cut 4 panel pieces of the temples both left and right (made by internally offsetting the temples without the gluing piece) plus one patterned piece of each side. (Gosh I hope that made sense) I glued two pieces on each side of the temple and the patterned piece on the outside (the one showing) – I did that on each side.

I inked all edges with Distress Ink and added a few rhinestones onto the front as showed.

Lastly I found these fun silver glitter berries in my stash and glued them onto the back of the “2’s” – just for a little fun bling bling.

Now I ready to go to my New Years party tonight and ring in the New Year.

Thank you so much for visiting my blog this year – please come back again next year 😀

HAPPY NEW YEAR ❤

Chestnuts Roasting……

Today I’m going to show you something very different from what I had prepared.

Go figure! I’ve had my eye on this Christmas Fireplace from Simply Crafty Svgs for a long time. Ever since I saw it on the draft board among other designs and I instantly knew THAT was going to be a Christmas project.

So when this was released I got busy…..REALLY busy! Barely got home from the Gym today 😀

I’m totally in love with this cool giftbox. Especially because – well it’s a box but also because of the awesome fireplace that lits up by a LED tea light. Such a brilliant design!

I made mine with AC Cardstock and patterned paper from DCWV Stack Red&White Christmas and Recollections Paper Pad Wood, Marble and Brass.

I also used a bit of vellum for the flames, that I colored with Distress Ink.

The wood logs are embossed with a wood grain embossing folder from Darice and the panels on the Mantel are embossed with an embossing folder from Sizzix.

All edges are inked with matching Distress Ink and I added small gems on the cute bows on the garland.

Finally I added a bit of Stickles on the fuzzy top of the Stockings.

I do think this is a keeper. If only I can find a spot for it 😀 Otherwise I may have to make this again in a downsized version.

Thank you so much for joining me today. I will show you the original intended piece another day soon.
