Hanging Poinsettia

Hello and thanks for stopping by 🙂

Today I want to show you a hanging decoration I made using the beautiful poinsettia from Bird’s SVGs White Christmas Collection:

I made the same Poinsettia with holly and pine as the 5″ by 7″ card but enlarged it to fit the 30×30″ cutting mat. So it’s pretty big 🙂

I also made it double sided so it can hang in a window and be seen from both sides. This makes it pretty thick and sturdy as well.

I used AC Cardstock in Pine, Crimson, Forrest and Rouge along with some patterned cardstock in a lighter green. I also used White Best Creation Glitter Cardstock and some self-adhesive glitter cardstock from Artemio in green.

Finally I simply punched a hole in a top berry to thread my string and voila! It’s ready to hang.

Thanks for stopping by today – be sure to visit soon as I’m showing more Christmas projects in the following days 🙂 Oh and please leave a small comment for me 😉

 

The Joy of Giving

Hello and happy 2nd Sunday of Advent

Today I want to show you a beautiful gift box I made from the new kit by SVG Attic called JGW Christmas Botanica

DSC_0023

The Poinsettia 3D Flower Topped Box is perfect for a small hostess gift or even a Christmas gift.

I made the box in AC Cardstock in Rouge, Crimson, Olive and White and decorated it with patterned paper from Swedish Maja Design Paper “I Wish” and Best Creation White Glitter Paper.

I inked all the edges with chalk ink from Prima and sprinkled some Glass Glitter Gold Rush from Finnabair onto the flower center. Finally I added some gold glitter dots to the snowflake.

I can’t wait to be giving this one away…..

Thanks for joining me today – I still have lots of projects to show you so don’t stray too far 😉

My First Wreath

Hello and thanks for joining me once again on the blog this week 🙂

I have always been intimidated by wreaths. The idea of having to decorate it yourself like a flower arrangement, is just a no-go for me. I’m terrible at arranging flowers and the like.

But then I discovered the Folded Star Sprigs 3D Wreath from the JGW Colonial Christmas kit and I jumped to the challenge.

DSC_0006

I used AC Cardstock in Spinach for the ring and the outside sprigs and Spinach, Leaf and Moss for the filler sprigs. I made more than shown in the tutorial to make the wreath look a bit fuller.

I didn’t make the stars like Jodi did, because they are very similar to some folded stars that are traditional here in Denmark and that I have tons of since my mom and Mother-in-Law folded or actually braided lots for me (I just can’t seem to get the hang of it ) The only difference between my stars and Jodis is that mine are double sided as to Jodis being one-sided (and proberbly a lot easier to glue down) I used hot glue to glue down the stars and the small silver baubles.

All in all this wreath was very easy to assemble. The only difficulty I had, was gluing the ring together but it doesn’t have to be perfect since it’s going to be covered with sprigs anyways.

Thanks for joining me today – stay tuned for more Christmas projects soon.

Bling Bling Pictures

Happy Wednesday  – I so happy to see you 🙂

Ever since I discovered Bird’s beautiful cards from the Festive Gems Collection, I’ve been wanting to make them. But since Christmas cards are a thing of the past here in Denmark due to overpriced postage and poor postal service, I thought it had to be something different than cards.

Adding two and two together (oh yes I’m so NOT a math genius) I decided to make them as small pictures to hang in my living room for Christmas. That’s where the Square Shadow Box Flower Frame from the Picture Perfect Collection come in the “picture.”

So here is the Rhinestone Snowflake Picture:

img_9002

All the frames are made in AC Cardstock in White and decorated with Maja Design Patterned paper “Vintage Frost”

I discovered that I once had bought a Rhinestone Setter Tool from Silhouette and boy did this come in handy for these pictures 😀

These stones are clear and the slightly larger gems are Goosebumps from Queen & Co.

I also added some Prima holly and some snowflakes I found in my stash.

Next is the Rhinestone Christmas Tree Picture:

img_8999

For this one I used two different sizes Silhouette Gems in green and some larger gems from MME. They are a bit different in color but that just adds to the beauty of the picture.

Here I added a Prima Poinsettia and some Prima leaves along with a gold gem from the Scandinavian company Vivi Gade.

Then there’s the Rhinestone Bauble Picture:

img_9001

This cutie features two different size Silhouette gems in red and some larger gems from Vivi Gade.

For the bauble top I used Gold Stickles and I also added a Prima Poinsettia on some gold and green Prima leaves. The flower center is a large gold gem from Vivi Gade.

Last but not least I made the Rhinestone Wreath Picture:

img_9003

For this picture I used two different size Silhouette Gems and some larger gems from Vivi Gade in red.

The bow is from DIY AC and this pictures has also a Prima Poinsettia with Holly and a gem from Vivi Gade.

This was a fun but a bit time consuming project – but hey….I now have a gorgeous collection of small Christmas pictures to hand on my wall this Christmas and many to come.

Thanks for joining me today – I hope you found some inspiration in my projects and that you get a lot of Christmas crafting done ❤

Realistic Pine Cone

Hello – Thanks for joining me again today.

This time I want to show you the amazing and very realistic Pine Cone I made from the new kit from SVG Attic called JGW Christmas Botanica.

Pine cone

For this rather large but absolutely delicious Pine Cone, I used 10 sheets of AC Cardstock Chocolate.

It is so easy to assemble and you can find the tutorial right here

I also made two Pine Sprigs from the Pine Sprigs A7 Card also to be found in the new kit.

They are made of two or in my case three layers and I used AC Cardstock in Forest and Pine.

Finally I tied a red ribbon onto it and ta daaa….all done.

Thanks for joining me today.

Santas Boots

Hello and happy 1st. Sunday of Advent 🙂

Gosh! I’ve been waiting for this month all year – I just love Christmas and all the fantastic paper projects you can make this time of year.

For starters I want to show you this pair of boots I made from the JGW Santas Repose kit.

DSC_0016

The boots are made from AC Cardstock in Charcoal, Black and White and the pine sprigs are also made in AC Cardstock in Forest and Spinach.

I decorated two of the sprigs with some green/gold shimmery paper and the panels for the shoelaces are DCWV Silver Mercury Glass Cardstock.

DSC_0018

I also added a small bell on each boot along with some snowflakes from my stash.

DSC_0021

These boots are awesome as they are but I chose to use them as decoration with some candy canes.

Thanks for joining me today – I’ll be back later with some more Christmas projekts.

Colorful Christmas

Today I want to show a small project I’ve been meaning to make for quite some time now. I admit I was a bit intimidated by it, but lately some of my projects have been rather challenging so I looked at it again and thought: Naaahhhh you can do it!

I’m talking about the cute Candy Cane Box from the JGW Santas Repose kit from SVG Attic.

DSC_0024

It’s made from Rouge AC Cardstock and the stripes are some thin washi tape I found in my stash. Made it very easy to wrap.

The pinecone is made from Chestnut AC Cardstock and decorated with two types of glitter so it looked frosted.

DSC_0030

Finally the holly is made from Pine and Spinach AC Cardstock and decorated with Cricket POW Glitter paper from AC.

DSC_0032

I am really surprised how easy everything was to make and assemble – what was I fearing???? Sometimes you just have to tell that head of yours to be quiet and dive in! 😉

I stuffed this baby full of red, green and purple Skittles and it’s all ready as gift for a lucky someone.

Thanks for stopping by today – ahead is a full month of Christmas with lots of creative projects, yummy treats and lots of cozy moments with friends and family…..Oooooooh I’m so excited!

Snowy Swirls

Sometimes I just can’t believe how alike some of us think. Like this project I’m about to show you.

I made mine a while back and really thought “Hey! This is an awesome idea nobody before me has thought of”……until Lee Cox released her blog post with the gorgeous Gingerbread House Clock she made in red, white and brown (check it out here)

Yup great minds think alike (ha ha ha or just crazy minds) and she had made one just like it too. I’m talking about the 3D Swirly Christmas Tree (a freebie found here)

DSC_0012

She too had made it into a 3D creation by gluing six trees together. I just added a second layer of Best Creation White Glitter paper. This was made by making an internal offset of the tree – mine is 1 cm (0.039″)

Such an easy project that looks beautiful during the day and at night…….

DSC_0006

…it’s gorgeous!!!

Thanks for stopping by today and please remember to leave me a small greeting 🙂

Time for Christmas

It’s getting closer and closer 🙂 And I for one am like a child – I can’t wait.

Talking about Christmas in all it’s glory, glitter and coziness ❤

One of my new Christmas decorations is the Gingerbread House Clock from Bird’s Christmastime SVG Collection:

DSC_0010

The house itself is made from AC Cardstock in Caramel and decorated with White Glitter Paper from Best Creation and pink/rose colored POW Glitter paper from AC. The base is made from White AC Cardstock and the panels are patterned paper from My Minds Eye “Colorful Christmas”. The vellum is from a local craft store and is patterned with white swirls.

I embellished with different sizes of white glitter domes and painted the second hand with a white sharpie and rose colored Stickles glue.

As I was thinking it would be awesome to tell time at night also, I cut out the numbers on the watch through all the layers and added some vellum behind – works like a charm 😉

DSC_0008

Love this Gingerbread House Clock. It’s tick tock’ing away in my living room and is a gorgeous addition to all my other luminary Christmas Decorations.

Thanks for stopping by today – I’ll be back soon with another Christmas project 😉

 

White Gold

You’ve seen me mention this before: I LOVE snow – the white gold from above. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that this will be the year for some serious snow cover for several month so I can get my need covered 😉

This love of snow and a lady on Facebook (Cindy Jones) are what made my otherwise crazy brain, come up with an idea for my Christmas Dinner Table.

Every year I make place cards – just because I can 😉 If I didn’t, my kids would throw a fit. I make them every time for Birthdays, Christmas and New Years.

As I mentioned my idea sprung partly due to Cindy Jones from one of the craft group I’m in on Facebook. She made a beautiful version of Bird’s Snowflake Easel Card (found as a freebie here) and I instantly knew how to make my place cards:

DSC_0007

It is downscaled 50% from the original and I used Vanilla AC Cardstock along with Best Creation White Glitter Paper and some gold glitter paper from my stash. I popped the name tag on with pop dots and added a small diamond gem to the middle of the snowflake. As easy as that.

So what do you think?

Thanks for stopping by 🙂
