12 Days of Holiday Inspiration - Day 1!

Hello friends and welcome to the final event of the Inspiration Crew - the 12 Days of Holiday Inspiration Blog Event!  We're a group of online crafty friends who love being creative.  This time we're doing a 12-day event to provide you with tons of holiday inspiration and some of us are even offering prizes - I am!  Make sure you check each blog for what prizes are being offered and when winners will be announced.  

For my first project, I have a couple of tree tags that I made with large banner stamps - simple!  I just stamped the banner images and cut them out, backed the stamped images onto another die cut piece of chipboard, layering a black pipe cleaner "trunk" in between and gluing it into place.  I decorated the trees with some sequins, glass glitter stars, and some chipboard stickers.  

The prize I am offering is an assortment of Maya Road goodies - a canvas album, some gauze flowers, and some alterable trinkets.  I will choose one random commenter over the next 12 days and will announce the winner on the 15th of this month.

Finally, before I go, I realize I haven't shared many photos of Amelia lately - mainly because our photo storage is all messed up and I don't have many on my laptop where I do my blog posting.  So, without further ado, here she is, hanging out in mommy's office in the big, twirly chair.  She loves it!  pickup sticks (she found her bag of goodies for daddy's stocking) and some glass glitter.  Bad mama...  
Have a great day and I will see you back here tomorrow!

Here is a list of the other participants in this event - I can't wait to see what crafty goodness they have to share with us this week!  :)

The Twinery and CardMaker Blog Hop!

Hello friends and welcome to the fabulous blog hop with The Twinery and CardMaker!  If you're here from Theresa's blog, you're in the right spot!  If not, head over to CardMaker to get started!  I am so excited for this hop and know I will see so many wonderful creations when I hop myself!  :)
For my card, I chose to layer a couple of pieces of patterned paper and added a "Thankful" sticker at the bottom.  I stamped a couple of acorn stamps and pieced them as well as some leaves and added them to the card using foam tape for dimension.  I finished the card with some fun trim and cute little twine bows.

A Prize for hopping today will be 4 spools of twine - Solid Mandarin, Gold Shimmer, Copper Shimmer, and Solid Maraschino ($60 retail value). Please visit The Twinery blog to ​find out how to enter to win the spools of twine.
Next up is Anita! Thank you so much for visiting today and have a great day!

Holiday Inspiration Crew - Thanksgiving Blog Hop!

Hello friends and welcome to our Thanksgiving Blog Hop!  We are a group of crafty blog friends who like to get together and share crafty ideas using products we like to make projects we enjoy creating. 

For this hop, I used a fun new Carta Bella paper collection and stamped a wonderful sheaf of wheat onto a journaling card.  I finished the card with a chipboard sentiment and some coordinating brads.

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to visit the blogs of the other ladies participating in our Thanksgiving Blog Hop today - I've listed their names and links to their blogs at the bottom of this post.
