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?

  • 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" 

STAMP:
  • Using the Mini Misti stamp image on X-Press Blend It Cardstock

Last Minute Gifts


Hi, and welcome, everyone. I'm over on the SVG Attic Blog today.
 Well, here we are two days before Christmas, and without fail, the last minute gift happens. Don't worry, it happens to the best of us. You get a call from a relative and so-so is bringing their better half to your house, Christmas Eve. Do you say "Oh, Well, better luck next year" or fight the crowds to find a quick gift? Personally, I run for the stash of gift cards I keep, grab one, break out the Silhouette Cameo and make one of these adorable, easy gift card holders from the JGW Ho Ho Holiday Collection at SVG Attic. Seriously, they think you put a lot of effort into it. They leave the house saying "Oh my gosh, that was so sweet of her to give me a gift card and she made the holder!" And I secretly high-five myself for being crafty and pulling off another last minute gift.

The "present" gift card holder can be used for Birthdays, Weddings, New Baby, and so much more.

You can always change the papers and use the candy gift card holder for boys or girls birthdays.

I always say use your SVG files for any and everything! 

I used 12 x 12 paper in white and kraft along with patterned paper from DCWV Merry Memories Stack. 

MERRY CHRISTMAS!
