Merry Christmas

Hi, and welcome to the Craftin Desert Divas Daily Post, everyone! We want to start this post off by saying Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and yours from all of us here at
Craftin Desert Divas! This holiday season has flown by but don't despair because Craftin Desert Divas has a lot of fun things coming for 2017! I'm super excited to see what Tara and her amazingly talented team of elves, Mindy and Anita, has planned.

Using the newly released Hello You Stamps, I created this Christmas card to all of you from all of us! Did you know just by enlarging any of the SVG Outlines you can create fun shakers, just like the one I created here?

  • 4.25"x 5.5" card base 

  • Using SVG Outlines for Winter Cheer, I created the tree cut out using my Silhouette Cameo by making the outline larger once cut die cut using the largest Fancy Frame Scalloped Die
  • Adhere acetate to back of white cardstock to cover die-cut area 
  • Add 3D Mounting Foam to back of white cardstock, on acetate, to create a dam to hold sequins
  • Add sequins and Adhere white panel to back 
  • Die cut banner from Flag Banner Dies 
  • Use SVG Outlines to cut girl from Hello You
  • Cut patterned paper 4.125"x 5.375" 

  • Using the Mini Misti stamp image on X-Press Blend It Cardstock
  • Color using COPIC Markers
  • Using the Mini Misti Stamp sentiment on banner 

  • Layer patterned paper onto card base 
  • Add images and banner to front of card base

Here are the products I used:

Do You Know Pet Parents?

Hi and welcome, everyone. Today I'm over on the SVG Attic Blog sharing a few ways to present Pet gifts. I think often times we forget that some people consider their pets to be their children, especially, couples who can't have children. And how sad is it that we don't acknowledge their fur babies. I was one of those people, and I say let's give "Pet Parents" and their babies some love, too! So here are a few ideas next time you want to give a Pet gift.
With just a few SVG Attic Files you will be passing out these cute Pet gifts yourself.
I created the Fire Hydrant Treat Box using the JGW Little Fire Chief Kit, the gift card holder using the SVGA Holiday Cheer Gift Boxes, and the card using the paw print from SVGA Jack's Tracks. One of the best things about all the Kits listed, they can be used for multiple projects. The Little Fire Chief Kit makes for an awesome birthday party or load that fire hydrant up with homemade cookies for your local fir…
