Thanks for joining me today 🙂 Just wanna show a little something I made inspired by all the love floating around these days and yet I want to keep it un-Valentined 😀
The other day I went shopping on a Danish webshop that sells American candies among other stuff and I found some Hersheys Kisses. That made me think of the Chocolate Kiss 3D Box from SnapDragon Snippets and voila!
This baby is so incredible easy to make! I used some grey pearl cardstock and AC Cardstock in Chocolate to make the box and made and added on some panels in silver foiled paper, that I embossed with a crackled pattern. Then I made the tag with the print and cut function on my Silhouette Cameo along with the small cute winter images that I clued onto the chocolate. I found these in the Silhouette Design Store id #70871 and #70219.
Just the thing for a winter-lover like me 🙂
Now I need to hide the rest of the kisses, cause my eldest son has now developed a taste for them.
Have an awesome weekend – hope you get a lot of crafting done 🙂
….or even one in rainbow colors 😉
No seriously! It has been a looooong time since we’ve had a white Christmas here in Denmark and I really long for the white gold. But so far all we have is grey, windy and chilly weather. Yuk 😦
So I have to escape to fantasy land to get my White Christmas. What luck that you can find just that at 3dcuts.com. Last Christmas I decorated my table with the cute little white houses but this year Marji Roy made a Hexagon Base to display the little winter town. I got my base at 3dcuts.com but all the little houses in the Silhouette Design Store. I do have to mention that the Skating Rink is not part of the Tea Light Village but one I found in the Silhouette Design Store (#102105) and I sized it down to match the houses.
So here it is:
The entire town is made from White AC Cardstock. I did spray the base and the roofs with some glitter but it’s hard to see in the pics.
My display is made for my dresser so I didn’t have to worry about the backside of it.
I also a string of fairy lights and I went with multicolored…..This was a great decision! Just look how pretty it is lit at night:
Now my little town has really come to life and my dream of a white and a rainbow colored Christmas has come true.
Here are some more pics of the lit town:

Hello! If you’re anything like me, you can’t wait for the white gold to start falling and for Jack Frost to make nature sparkle and glitter. Winter is definitely my favorite season (that is when it behaves the way it should and not the foggy, rainy, warm winter) so that is what it’s all about today.
I just couldn’t help myself to make the cute Igloo from the SDS Frosty Friends kit
It is made out of AC Cardstock in White and Blueberry and decorated with Sparkle Paper in White and Maja Design Paper “Joyous Winterdays”. Just follow the instructions found here and you’ll be all set – easy peasy!
I also wanted the Igloo to look inhabited, so I made a small sled for the owner.
The sled is from the JGW Made of Snow kit. It’s made of AC Cardstock in Chocolate, Slate and Black along with some wood patterned paper from KaiserKraft. I used a tiny black brad for the steering pad and some twine. The small rivets are made from small dots of Enamel Accent from Tim Holtz. I did size this one down to match the size of the Igloo. You find the tutorial for the sled here.
The owner is also keen on skis, so I made him a pair from the JGW Winter Wonderland Wreath
These skis are made a bit bigger to match the size of the Igloo and sled and are made from AC Cardstock in Chocolate and Charcoal and with patterned paper from KaiserKraft. These are soooo easy to make and you find the tutorial here.
At night the igloo lights up with a cozy light 😉
So now the small but lucky owner of the Igloo is ready for the upcoming frosty season and I look forward to many more cool and glittery projects in my warm and cozy craft room 🙂

Hello! 🙂 Just a small post to show you the two different trees I made out of Bird’s Snowflake Tree from her newest and absolutely gorgeous collection Christmastime.
First I made the tree the way Bird intended it to be:
I made it out of White AC Cardstock and the star is made from DCWV’s Mercury Glass Collection.
Here seen from above:
As you can see it’s very symmetrical ❤
Then I tried to mess things up and make a tree that is asymmetrical:
This tree is also made from White AC Cardstock but the star is made from Gold Pearl Paper. This tree is a bit fuller but still gorgeous. All I did was turn the center hole 45 degrees in every other snowflake.
Here’s a top view:
I can’t decided which I love the most and I really dig the idea of how you can play around with this tree any way you want. You can even make it rainbow colored ❤
Thanks for stopping by today – I hope you can use my little idea and please comment on it below ❤ Time for playing with the rest of the kit 😉
