Spellbinders – Special Edition The Merry Everything Christmas Kit

25 Cards – 1 Kit

Merry Everything Kit-1

Hello and Happy Monday Crafty Friends! Today I am creating 25, Yes a whopping 25 cards with the Limited Edition-Merry Everything Christmas Kit🙂  I think this just may be my record breaker!!!  Since this was an extra large kit that came with 25 card bases, I thought why not create 25 cards. Spellbinders Shop has this kit available, if you want to check it out:)  This is one fantastic kit and it is fully packed with goodies, including a stamp set, a 6 x 6 paper pad, coordinating 3D stickers, epoxy accents, layered stickers, gems, tags, glitter cardstock and much much more!  If you would like to see everything that is in it, CLICK HERE for the UNBOXING VIDEO.

Spellbinders-Special Edition Kit

All 25 cards are created using only elements from the kit..well I did use my glue and added more foam tape.  The kit came with it’s own, but I knew I  would need more, lol:)

You can watch how I created all 25 of my card projects over on my YouTube Channel, Just Click Here!  Grab your coffee friends and let’s get to crafting!  Have a Beautiful Day!  Hugs, Tina

Gerda Steiner Designs – Peas Be Mine

GSD PEAS BE MINE 1Hello and happy Monday Everyone!!  I have a fun project to share with you today using the cutest ever Gerda Steiner Designs Peas Be Mine stamp set.

0-1_44ae3c5f-cad5-4461-8c5b-a9653dc28f7f_2048xI love this stamp and was so excited to create a card with it as it brings back sweet memories… We never said “please” we always said “peas” when our kids were little.  Now our beautiful girls who are about a year and a half apart (they are definitely 2 peas in a pod) are barely teenagers and every so often we will catch them saying “peas” instead of “please”, it drives them crazy when we call them on it but for us it just melts our hearts and puts a huge smile on our faces:)

You can watch the tutorial on how I created this card down below or over on my YouTube Channel, Just Click Here🙂  I hope this put’s a smile on your face as much as it did mine:)  Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a beautiful day!  Hugs, Tina

SFL DT Project

SugarPea Designs “Parisian Holiday” & La-La Land Crafts Vintage Bike

SFL Blog Cover

Hello & Happy Sunday Crafty Friends! Today for another Scrapping for Less Project I made a card with the Delightful “Parisian Holiday” Stamp Set by SugarPea Designs and La-La Land Crafts Vintage Bike.  I thought the two complimented each other beautifully.  I distressed the rounded rectangle frame with Candied Apple Distress Oxide Ink.  Also added a bit of color behind my scene with more Distress Oxide in the colors of Peacock Feathers and Twisted Citron.  I colored the images with copic markers and die cut the adorable vintage bike with silver foil cardstock.  For finishing touches I added a few silver stars.  Check out the Scrapping for Less Shop for the items used today for my Design Team Project!  Grab your coffee friends and lets get to crafting:)  Have a Beautiful Day!  Thanks for stopping by!  Hugs, Tina
