Sweets for my sweet

Hello Sassy Friends and happy weekend to you!

There are only a few more days of school left and my mind is firmly on teacher's gifts. I'm thinking something yummy and sweet might do the trick this year. Easy is also an added bonus, and if you have a Silhouette Cameo, or a steady hand, you can whip these little gift boxes up in no time at all!

I've loved creating with Pink Paislee's Yuletide all month. It's lent itself beautifully to mixed media, OTP and simple and elegant. So versatile. This box was created with a sheet of white cardstock and some leftover 'Wrapping Paper'. The box was cut by hand but you could also use a cute metal die.

The box opens to reveal a luscious red velvet cupcake. (Here's hoping it will withstand the December heat!) I've used the acrylic shapes that come in the Yuletide Ephemera pack as cute cake toppers.

The box is a 3D cut file by Lori Whitlock, available in the Silhouette Store.

My little star gift box is also a cut file (Amanda Walker) which you can find in the Silhouette online store. I've used a sheet of 'Frosty' as well as some sequin ribbon, some twine and a cute tag hand cut from a sheet of 'Baked Goods'.

A bit of white thread creates a nice bit of texture.

The star opens to reveal some jolly chocolate Santas, waiting to be gobbled up!

Wishing our overseas friends a very Happy Thanksgiving!

Thank you for stopping by today

Christmas Cards With Anita

Today I'm sharing a few cards created using the Christmas on market street 
by my minds eyeWell not long now till Christmas so I thought I would share 
how easy it is to incorporate vellum on a few cards
To add that touch of loveless 

I layered the red polka dot paper over the my card base after embossing it with a embossing folder
Then I cut the vellum a bit smaller and layered in the center 

Next I popped out 2 of the chipboard stickers 
And added them to my card

I used the same polka dot paper on the card base
Then I cut a strip of another polka dot patterned paper and cut it in a pendent shape

And then some vellum in a pendent shape 
And next adding flowers from the die cut pack and a chipboard bit in the center
And here are some other shots of my cards

And here is a picture of my kit I'll be working with all this month 

so pop on over and check out this wonderful collection in the sassy store

Christmas Wishes Collection by Pinkfresh Studio

Hello Leonie back today on this last Wednesday in November!  
Next week will be December and we'll be right in the thick of the most lovely season of the year.   My last project with the Pinkfresh Studio Christmas Wishes collection is a scrapbook page featuring some photo's from last years' Christmas morning.  I've really enjoyed creating with this range the past month.

I scrapped a sequence of three photo's, trying to capture the excitement of present opening on Christmas morning with my Husband getting in on the Kids fun!!  I backed some of Ephemera frames and die cut cards behind the photo's 

How sweet are these little gift boxes from the ephemera pack? So cute!! I just added some foam tape to the back of one to add some dimension and pop them off the page. 

And a last close up of the water colour effects I added to the background 
with some watercolour paints. 

Thanks so much for stopping by the Sassy Scrapper blog.
Happy Christmas crafting.

Merry & Bright layout with Kat

Hi everyone.
I'm back for my last post as the November guest designer for Sassy Scrappers. Today I'm sharing a layout that I created using the November mood board as inspiration. This collection has a number of vintage elements, which I thought would be perfect for scrapping some older Christmas photos. For this layout I've used one of my husband's family photos from the UK almost 20 years ago.
I started with a kraft cardstock base and layered a number of different red, green and gold papers behind the photo, including some patterned papers from the Simple Stories Claus & Co collection and a beautiful metallic gold vellum from My Minds Eye.

For the title I used a wood veneer from the Cocoa Vanilla Tis the Season collection that matched the mood board and layered it over a tag. I embellished with die cuts from the Simple Stories Claus & Co Bits and Pieces pack, sequins from the Pink Paislee Yuletide collection and more wood veneers. To finish the layout I added a border of machine stitching with a gold thread for some extra sparkle.
Here's the November mood board. We'd love for you to play along with us this month.
Thanks so much for stopping by today.

Project Life Monday | December Filler Cards...

 Welcome back Project Life Monday Sassy Friends!  Today's tutorial involves three more filler cards to help inspire you to be ready for the silly season that is almost upon us! Eeeek! Apart from my PL2015 filler cards, I am nowhere near to being ready! 

 This week I have created cards that involve both fussy cutting, pocket creating and more stamping using the gorgeous Kelly Purkey | All Decked Out clear stamps.
Merry Christmas | Stamped 3x4 Filler Card
step 1: Using the Merry Christmas tag from the October Afternoon Under the Tree Die Cut Tags and the deer head from the Kelly Purkey clear stamps, stamp the image on the lower edge allowing for the antlers and ears to show. Use a piece of scratch paper below your tag to prevent inking your work surface.
  I've chosen to use the Hero Arts Ombre Ink | Pink to Red.

step 2: Trim a 3x4 card from the OA Under the Tree | Merry Making patterned paper. Adhere the tag to the center of the 3x4 patterned paper.

 Holly Jolly | 3x4 Filler Card
step 1: Gather your supplies - smooth white cardstock, OA Under the Tree Cocoa Sipping patterned paper, the Holly Jolly cut apart from the OA Under the Tree Merry Making patterned paper, ombre ink & an ink blending tool.

step 2:  On a piece of 3x4 smooth cardstock, ink the outer edges with the help of a blending tool. Leave the center of the cardstock as crisp as possible and once dry, layer a hand cut star using OA Under the Tree Cocoa Sipping patterned paper.
step 3: Layer the Holly Jolly cut apart on top of the star. Machine stitch in place for added texture!
Beginning to Look | 3x4 Filler Card
step 1: Gather your supplies - OA Under the Tree Gift Giving patterned paper,  OA Under the Tree Merry Making patterned paper.
step 2: Fussy cut the snowman image from the patterned paper and using the reverse side of the same patterned paper, trim a 3x4 card.
step 3: Use the Christmas cut apart phrase from the Merry Making paper to layer across the bottom of the 3x4 card. The Christmas phrase is too wide and will need trimming.
step 4: To create a pocket for the fussy cut snowman to slip into, adhere the side and bottom edges only of the cut apart piece to the 3x4 card. Now you can slip your fussy cut image into the pocket along with any other journaling strips or ephemera keepsakes.
Thanks for visiting today. I hope you have found a little bit of inspiration using October Afternoon Under the Tree..x
