Brrr-ing on the Holidays

Hi and welcome, everyone! Lisa from The Relativity of Paper sharing a shaker snow globe for the daily post. I love letting my patterned papers do the majority of the work for me, and these cute little snowmen are perfect inside the snow globe. 

 The sentiment is from the Chill Out Stamp Set and adds a fun touch inside the snow globe. Winter Wishes sentiment is from the brand new Santa's Helpers Stamp Set. The Shimmer Sequins are so beautiful inside the snow globe, they are my favorite sequins with Fairy Dust coming in second! So beautiful for creating snow. 

Here are the products I used:

Planner Organization

Hi and welcome, everyone. Lisa from The Relativity of Paper sharing a fun way to organize all your planner supplies. I've recently entered the Planner World, and just like crafting, I can see I need to organize my supplies, or it can get scary, quick!  A few months back I used the Desk Organizer from SVG Attic's G is for Gratitude to create a Gift Station. It held tags, tape, twine; you get the picture, right? I quickly repurposed it to hold some new planner stamps, pens, washi tape, correction tape, appointment cards, and planner clips; it's perfect.  I since decided Seasonal Organizers are a must because I decorate my planner by seasons. So here is my Winter Planner Organizer. I keep this sitting on a shelf in my craft room, with easy access I can step in and put my appointment cards in the side pocket, and have them ready for a planning day. 

You will be surprised at the number of supplies this holds. 

The pockets on the sides are perfect for appointment cards and pens. 

I used DCWV Hand-Painted Christmas 12 x 12 Patterned Paper to decorate the organizer. 
I recommend a heavy cardstock. I used Bazzill 12 x 12 Cardstock.
As always, thanks for joining us! 

Merry Christmas

Hi and welcome, everyone! Today I'm over on the Craftin Desert Divas Blog bringing you the daily post and asking...where do you find inspiration? For this card, I went to Pinterest and searched Santa Boots. Of course, a vast and varied selection popped up. One thing caught my eye, a wreath with elf boots and striped legs dangling, very Whoville-ish! Something so fun, so cute, something I need hanging on my front door, for sure. I immediately knew what had to be done. 

Now here's the thing, it's die-cut overload! I'm learning that sometimes you just have to go for it. Load it up with everything including the kitchen sink. What is life without risk, right?  Hey, sometimes it works other times not so much.

Make Your Own Magic

Hi and welcome, everyone! Lisa from The Relativity of Paper sharing a sneak peek of three of the four new Mini Stamps Sets:  Camping Friends, Feathered Friends, In The Wild, and Rockin' Reptilian. I've used three of these sets to create a little sneak peek magic for you. 

At the beginning of the summer, Craftin Desert Divas released an adorable stamp set for boys, Adventure Awaits. With three fun images of boys having extraordinary adventures: a wizard, a pirate, and an astronaut. When you take fun stamps like that and add these fantastic minis, you can create some unique cards. My theme for this card is Harry Potter. The owl represents Hedwig, the snake a couple of things; a Parselmouth and the Basilisk, and the deer represents Harry's Patronus. 

  • 4.25"x 5.5" card base - 8.5" x 11" #110 cardstock scored at 5.5" and cut at 4.25" to create to top fold card bases
  • Die-cut X-Press Blend It cardstock and patterned paper using the Shaker Tag Dies
  • Cut the patterned paper tag in half

  • Using Mini Misti or acrylic block stamp all images and sentiment using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink
  • Color using COPIC Markers
  • Fussy cut the wizard
  • Using the swirl and stars stamp from Magical Wishes Stamp Set randomly stamp using Yellow and VersaMark Watermark ink 

  • Adhere patterned paper half to tag and adding 3D mounting foam to the back of the wizard and place on patterned paper (as shown above)
  • Add 3D mounting foam to back of tag 
  • Decide placement of tag on card base and stamp sentiment using Versafine Onyx Black
  • Adhere tag to card base  
  • Finish with Sprinkles

Here are some products I used that are already available for purchase:

Doodlebug-Sprinkles Self Adhesive Glitter Enamel Embellishments. Add a touch of shimmer and brilliance to your project with these fun glitter enamel stickers! This package contains fifty-four self- adhesive glitter enamel embellishments in three different sizes and three different tints on one 3-3/4x2-1/2 inch backing sheet. Comes in a variety of colors.

Boo To You!

Hi and welcome, everyone! I'm up on the Craftin Desert Divas Blog sharing another Halloween card featuring the Fright Night Stamps and Build A Scene Stamps. As promised in my previous daily post, I've piled it on again.

Adding fun elements is so easy using the Build A Scene Stamp Sets and the coordinating SVG Outlines. The tree and fence are elements from the Build A Scene Stamp Set. The ghost, pumpkin, and cat are from the Fright Night Stamp set. The sentiment is from Ghostly Greetings Stamps
