Peachy Keen Challenge: Cookies for Santa

Hello my treasured friends!

I hope all the holiday decor is up, with the shopping almost done! It has been a week of crafting for me! Last night was a surprise party that I threw for my boyfriend. He is now a licensed Certified Automotive Technician, and I'm super duper proud of him! I'll post pics of everything once I can get the card back from him to take a picture ;)

Meanwhile, Christmas is a week away! You know what that's time to leave out cookies for Santa! I should have added a glass of milk to the card but that totally slipped my mind, oops! Next time! :) Here's my entry for Peachy Keen's Designers' Choice Challenge and My Craft Spot's Challenge 37 - Christmas Shape Cards.

Trail of Treasures:
  • Card Base - 5.25 x 5.25", welded in my Gyspy in kraft with the shape from Lacy Labels
  • Layer - 5 x 5", patterned paper from DCWV Christmas Stack
  • Plate - From My Kitchen cartridge; if you do not own this cartridge, you can cut out one larger circle, and a smaller one. My "larger" circle is cut out in gold, while the smaller one is cut in silver
  • Gingerbread & Star Cookies - used the CottageCutz Gingerbread doll die for the gingerbread men, and used PK-520 Winter Faces Assortment for the cute patootie face. Added the bling with my iRock, and used my Gelly Roll Pen for the icing. The stars are cut from the Creative Memories Star Maker, and used Inkssentials White Enamel Accents and gold Stickles for the icing
During this Christmas season, make sure to give to those who are less fortunate. Everyone deserves a warm place to rest their hearts this season.

Until next time's treasures,

Day 13 of 25 Days in December: Freezin' Season

Hello my treasured friends and welcome to Day 13 of Erica over at My Cricut Craft Room's 25 Days in December celebration!

Today we are creating penguin projects! Lately, I've been on a penguin craze lately, so I jumped at the chance for more penguin projects! I welded the shape together in my Gypsy from Lacy Labels, and adjusted an oval from Plantin Schoolbook and added Crystal Accents to create the "ice rink."

Here's my Pink By Design sentiment on the inside of the card:

Trail of Treasures:
  • Card Base - welded in Gypsy and cut from Lacy Labels Cricut Cartridge at 5.5 x 4.25 inches in white cardstock
  • Card Layer - Lacy Labels cut, 5.25 x 4 inches, using patterned paper
  • Hills - adjusted image from Everyday Paper Dolls cartridge, cut in white cardstock
  • Ice Rink - adjusted oval from Plantin Schoolbook, added glitter and Cystal Accents
  • Penguins - Penguin Doll Peachy Keen Cottage Cutz Die, and Doll Accessories 3 Die
  • Sentiment - Pink By Design Christmas Wishes set
Until next time's treasures,

    CTO Design Team Call! CTO Challenge 42: Christmas (No Green): Season's Magic

    Hello my treasured friends!

    Phew! I've finally finished my papers and now it's time to study for exams. Boy, I sure cannot wait for the holidays, as I'm sure that goes for all of us! :) So, have you heard?! Celebrate the Occasion is having a design team call! I've had a BLAST designing projects for the wonderful ladies, and who doesn't need cards for all the occasions out there?! ;) I highly recommend you to give it a shot! :) So speakinng of Celebrate the Occasion, our challenge this week is to create a Christmas themed project with no green. Easy peasy right?! Here's what I created for this week:

    Aren't these little penguins just the cutuest?! I don't know if you can tell, but I used Peachy Keen's Ice Crystal Glitter Paint to make my penguins "magical." Does the Pink By Design sentiment work perfectly? ;) Here's a close up of the adorable penguins!

    It's really difficult to notice the glitter in the picture, but I assure you, it's definitely sparkly up close!

    Trail of Treasures:

    I'll be back to updating my blog more often soon, I promise!! Make sure to head on over to Celebrate the Occasion to celebrate with us, and to find out how you can enter to be on the design team! Good luck everyone!

    Until next time's treasures,
