A Sizzix Blue Christmas!

Hello all,

So Christmas crept up on me and I had to come up with something quit.  Out of ideas so a perused the SOC site for some inspiration.  I found a beautiful card, it was blue, detailed and elegant.  But Christmas was coming fast and I had not time for details or elegance, so I went simple and blue.

I went to my paper rack and the perfect blue was there.  YES!  I had a matching blue ink pad CTMH Indian Corn Blue.  I had white card stock, envelopes, silver glitter glue.   I love my Sizzix even though I have a cricut (which I also have)  I would not trade my Sizzix for anything. 

I check my dies, and believe it or not I have Christmas Tree Bulbs and I find a embossing folder of snowflakes.  Everything is coming together.  I rummage through my stamp drawers and see what I have. Snowflakes but no saying.

So I visit walmart and find the perfect greeting, for $1.00.  3 stamp acrylic set only $1.00.  One last thing ribbon to tie the bow picked some up at Joan's.  I also had some dimension to add some height.

 I ran my paper through the Big Shot Express with the Embossing Folder then with the Die. 

Here are the results...

Well i stuck with this years model. Simple!

What did your Holiday Card look like!

For the Diva

Hello all!

Sorry it has been awhile.  I will try to keep up.  So I have a besty that collects pins.  She loves them.  She also is a shop-a-holic.  A couple of years ago I bought her a book about Former Secretary of State Madeline Albright, My Life in Pins.  Ms Albright is a huge collector an interseting read, pictures of her pins, where she got them from and why she wore them whaen she did. 

That being said,  I now buy a pin for my friend for the special events we share.  Her birthday was this month so I had to do a diva card and a box to send her pin in.

So cricut here I come,  I used the Foreever Young Cart for the first time.  I look through my pile of paper and came across a pack of paper I purchased at Marshalls for 5.99.  This paper pad had 48 sheets, cream and blck papers and texture!  Some of the paper is ? fuzzy? suedy?  Anyways I love it.  the paper stack was DCWV La Creme stack.

I created a Shoe card and a matching Purse gift box that was the perfect size for a pin.

Try this for the Diva friend in your life!

Show me the cards for one of your besties.

Scrappinly Yours,
