Last post of the year.

Happy New Year. 

Just one last post for this year to share the Christmas card I did this year. I only did a few of these since they do require quite a few steps but I love how they turned out. 

I found the inspiration here one day while browsing Pinterest. Thank you Wanda for your design and great tutorial on how you did it so I could share your design with my friends and family. This card had me trying new techniques and some new products I had not used before. 

I didn't have all the cool embellishments that Wanda has on her card so I used what I had in my stash like using a bell brad around the neck of the deer and using other supplies in my stash like stamps from Jaded Blossom and My Creative Time. 

Here is wishing you all a Healthy and Joyous 2017!

Sending Warm Thoughts your Way!

Happy Friday!
I fun card to share today.
In the SVG Cutting Files store today are some new card bases. I am sure you have heard of the bendy cards. They make for great scenic 3D cards.
My card today features the Bracket Bendy Card Base.

I added some pattern paper to the back panel and embossed the two side panels.
I added this cute little sledder and trees to complete my scene.

Have a crafty Day!

Christmas Treats..a bit late!

Hey there. Hope everyone is having a great week. I know many people are on vacation this week taking some time off between the holidays. 

I've been cleaning and re-organizing my craft space. 
Where did all this stuff come from! 

I thought I would share a few projects I did last week getting ready for the holiday weekend. It was just so busy, I didn't have time to get them on the blog. So perhaps these will be inspiration for your file next year. 

First up some snowman treat boxes I filled with home made fudge. 

The file is from My Scrapchick and goes together super quick. I add a tag using a die and stamps from Jaded Blossom. It's hard to see it in this picture. 

Next a special treat for the neighbor boy...Reindeer Poop. 
I used the Jaded Blossom Scallop Topper Die  on the top of some chocolate covered sunflower seeds. I added the cute reindeer from SVG Cutting Files and then a sentiment from the JB Reindeer Poop stamp set that I stamped on a tag using 

Finally some Reindeer Noses for some little cousins on Christmas.  
Again, I used the Jaded Blossom Scallop Topper Die and did a quick print and cute of the Miss Kates Cuttables Reindeer. 

While I had the JB Reindeer Poop stamp set out, I again stamped tags using the  JB Candy Warp Dies for my title on these treat bags.

There you have it, my Christmas treats for 2016. 

Have a crafty day!

Holiday Treats!

Happy Holiday!!
I am delighted to be a guest designer this week here at Jaded Blossom. 
Today I am sharing with you a little last minute treat box I did.
I love giving cookies as little gifts to neighbors and friends so this was a perfect box for that. 


I found the box on the silhouette store here.
I used several JB dies and stamps to decorate the box. 

I did a double bow using the bow die and punched a tiny hole in the center to secure all the piece with a white brad. 

Here's a list of all the goodies I used today. 

Have a crafty day!

Warmest Winter wishes!

It's almost Christmas and the cold weather is here. Yes, old man winter has arrived.

I have a holiday card to share today that I did using one of a card sketch layout from the SVG Cut Club October bundle, sketch 36. 
The nice square space in the sketch allows you to place whatever themed image there you wish. I used a snow girl from the Snow Girl duo file.
The sentiment is from My Creative Time.

Fetching Christmas Wishes!

Happy Friday!

It's my day to share a new project over at SVG Cutting Files.  It is officially the Christmas season and time to get started on that gift list. For those gift cards, I have a holder to share with you today.


I did this for that dog lover in your family. It's done using the newly released
Puppy Present file in the store today.

I started by using the Jaded Blossom Gift Card holder die for the base.
Then I added some festive papers before adding the Puppy Die cut.
The sentiment is a mash up of two stamps sets.

Here is a list of additional items I used on my project today.

Jaded Blossom Candy Wrap dies
Jaded Blossom Christmas Kindness
Jaded Blossom Dog-gone Awesome

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
I am stopping by today to share a turkey card I did using sketch 24 from the SVG Cut Club April Bundle and also available in the SVG Cutting Files store.

I used some pretty fall papers and then added Mr. Tom Turkey to the front from the Turkey Time file set. I cant tell you how many times I have used this set. 
This sketch made it simple to cute all the pieces perfectly for my card. 
The hardest part was picking out the paper!

The sentiment is from the Jaded Blossom Happy Fall stamp set. You might be thinking, I don't see that stamp, well, it is the circle stamp and yes, I cut it apart to get the look I wanted on this card.

I have a holiday card to share today that I did using one of the card layouts in the bundle, 


I started by cutting out the card elements which were the rectangle pieces and card base. 
I added mats behind them as well. 

The layout shows triangle flags across the top corner, but I substituted a string of lights instead. 
Finished it off with that cute St. Nick and a die cut sentiment.

Food Fare Friday - Pumpkin Spice Cookies

Happy Friday!

It's my day to share a new project over at SVG Cutting Files.  I love the fall season with the pumpkins, squash, beautiful colors and the wonderful smells of fall baking.

It's been a while since I've done a Food Fare Friday, but today's release in the SVG store has the perfect file to go with any fall recipe page.


My recipe page features the new Chibi Fall Boy with Pumpkin. He is so super cute. He would be great on pumpkin picking page layouts as well.

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween!

Hope you're having fun getting ready for those trick-or-treaters later today. 

Just posting one last Halloween card before another Halloween has come and gone. 

I had a few pieces of that watercolor orange paper left I talked about in my previous post. So I matted it and added it to this card. 

I used the same cute mummy that I used on the other cards.


here's a list of goodies I used today...
Jaded Blossom Flag Dies

Spooky Greetings!

Happy Friday!

Been playing with some color burst inks this week to get some fall colors for Halloween cards. 
It took a few sheets of paper to get the orange blend I was happy with. 

I used bits of these orange papers on all four cards below.

I used several different stamps on these cards.
A real mix and match of Halloween stamps. 
I found it to be a good challenge to use the same stamp image and create different looks. 

Here is the list of goodies I used. 

Jaded Blossom Scalloped Square dies
Jaded Blossom Card Mat dies
Jaded Blossom Halloween dies
Jaded Blossom Border Dies 2
My Creative Time Too Cute to Spook Stamps and dies
My Creative Time Fright Night stamps

Goody Goody Gumdrops

I'm starting to think about holiday baking. 
There are some great new files over at SVG Cutting Files that are perfect for baking page layouts. 

I did a recipe page layout using the new Goody Goody Gumdrop Title. I saw this recipe on Pinterest and know it will be a favorite this season.


The cute file is part of the December bundle if you are a Cut Club Member.

Too Cute to Spook!


Hello Monday!

I did some Halloween treat bags for some friends using the PPPR Movie Monsters 4 cute file.  I used a mini brown shopping bag that measures about 5x7, decorated the front and filled it with a homemade snack mix. 
 I printed papers using several Halloween digital papers from PPPR before cutting to size and matting them in black. 
To make this treat bag come together quickly, I did a print and cut with the Frankenstein file and then cut a few individual pieces like his head and shirt so it still has a layered effect. 
The label die and sentiment are from Jaded Blossom. 

I am linking this project up to the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons link up party for a Halloween project. Be sure to check it out here.

Items used on this project are:
Movie Monsters 4 cut filed from PPPR

Have a Fang-tastic Day!

I was playing around with some Halloween stamps over the weekend and put together this simple card. I saw a similar card on Pinterest which was my inspiration.
Normally I would not have this much white space on a Halloween card but I think it works. 


I did some very simple coloring wiht copic and other markers in my stash. I only have one grey copic and it was too light. Looks Like Ineed to go shopping!

Dracula and sentiment stamp from My Creative Time here
Bats from BugBites Magic Spells stamp set

Ready for Some Football!

Yes, it is that season and I hear this line many times in my house. My reply is always no
Sorry, but I am just not a football fan. 

However, I do think this cut file of this adorable football payer is fantastic. 
I cut him pretty large so that he was a topper for my treat box here. 

I added a football and strategically placed his hands to be holding the football. 
I think this could be a  fun treat for any football fan.
