Dragon Festival Inside Scalloped Squares

Hi and welcome, everyone! Lisa from The Relativity of Paper bringing you the Craftin Desert Divas Daily post featuring a little sneak peek of the brand new Dragon Festival and Inside Scalloped Squares Dies releasing later this week.  Now, I'm going, to be honest with you all because that's what I do, right? I was not sure about the Dragon Festival Stamps because it's out of my comfort zone, but I couldn't stop with this set! I created five cards using this stamp set, and it's not just for the New Year. You will see as you check in on the Craftin Desert Divas November Event Page throughout the day. The Dragon Festival is a fun set. And you can never go wrong with Square Dies!  Love, love, love! 
Now be sure you are "going" to this event, so you will be included in the giveaways and stay up to date on new postings!  Just click the picture below to join us on the November Release Event Page.

Wonderful Winter

Hi and welcome, everyone!
 Today I'm over on the SVG Attic Blog sharing a Winter project featuring the Round Traveling Case, from JGW Fashionably French Collection, and elements from the JGW Winter Wonderland Wreath.

My inspiration for this project was pulled from my Mom's Christmas Tree. We use lots of blues and silver on a white tree and it truly feels like Winter. I will be creating a display using these pieces, ornaments, snowflakes, and fairy lights for her Christmas Party.

The sentiment is from the JGW Winter Wonderland and I used Marvy Snow Marker to add texture and dimension.

The skates are amazing and remind me of the movie Ice Castles. Do you remember that movie? I'm really aging myself with this.

As always, thanks for joining us!  New to SVG Attic? Check out these awesome places!

Gobble, Gobble

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone, and welcome! Today I'm up on the Craftin Desert Divas Blog sharing this cutie! I'm going to keep this short and sweet because it's Thanksgiving Day, a day to be with family and friends. 

I always try to get the most use out of my die-cuts by using them for more than what they are intended. Today I'm sharing how to turn some everyday circles, ovals, and banners into a Turkey.  I was thinking that this would be fun for kids to make. You could pre-cut the pieces and let them assemble, a little holiday craft to keep them busy while you baste the turkey. 

Here are the products I used:

CARD BASE: 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 LAYERS: Die-cut Kraft cardstock using largest Fancy Frame Die Die-cut seven banners using the wavy banner die and cut in half, die-cut five banners using largest banner die from the Flag Banner Dies, type Gobble…

Bubblegum, Bubblegum. In A Dish...

Hi, everyone! Welcome to the CDD Daily Post being brought to you by The Relativity of Paper. What do you get when you mix Craftin Desert Divas Shake It Up Dies with a childhood rhyme from a game? A fun birthday card. 

 Do you remember Bubblegum, Bubblegum in a dish?
You would stand in a circle, fist out; the counter would tap everyone's fist including their own (this usually required the counter to tap their chest because that was the cool thing to do), the person you ended on picked a number 1 through 20, then the counter started tapping everyone's fist while counting to said number. Whichever fist the counter ended on was out, and you would put your hand behind your back, both fists out meant you lose! Oh, times were so much easier, right?

The inside sentiment reads:  We hope all your bubble gum wishes come true. Happy Birthday!

Magical Memories

Hi and welcome, everyone! I'm up on the SVG Attic Blog sharing a fun way to keep magical memories using the JGW Just Sew Notions Box. We are headed to Disney World in December with our granddaughter, Averly Rose; this is her first trip there. Walking through the Magic Kingdom gates is a thrill for me. I nearly take off in a full sprint to stand smack tap in the middle of Main Street, USA where I can stand in awe of Cinderella's Castle. I can only hope Averly's first time is as magical. Since she is only three, I wanted her to have something to keep special little treasures in and the Notions Box is perfect. I found this box very easy to assemble and as always, binder clips can be your best friend when assembling.  

I used Simple Stories Say Cheese Collection. 

I have a Disney Font on my computer that I used to cut her name out of red cardstock. 

Here you can see the inside has five compartments to hold all of her magical treasures, even her MagicBand fits perfectly. I add…

Hoo's Been Naughty or Nice

Hi and welcome, everyone! Today I'm up on the Craftin Desert Divas Blog bringing you the Daily Post today. First, I want to start by telling you that my inspiration for this card comes from Angry Birds. I guess this is my take on a Christmas-themed Angry Bird. Only one problem, this Lil' guy is way too cute to be angry! He is naughty, though. I love the Owl-idays Stamp Set from Craftin Desert Divas, too much cuteness. 

I say it every time; this card is simple to create. A little die-cutting, stamping and coloring. And I always say let your paper do the work for you especially for backgrounds. I admit once in a blue moon I can create a watercolor background that I'm happy with and I sincerely wish I could knock them out every time but the fact is, I can't! So I rely heavily on patterned paper to do the work for me.
