As mentioned in the previous post, these are Paper Pins made with the Nesties smallest Christmas tree die. I die cut two pieces of green card stock and one piece of chip board and modge podged them together and let dry. Next I modge podged the front of the pin and added seed beads, thread and paper stars. Dab a little extra modge podge to secure your decorations and let dry. Last, I modge podged the back, cut a strip of card stock small enough to fit a safety pin and adhered the pin, in an upright position. This is easy and fun. I have been wearing one for a few days now and it is holding up just fine.

This hanging ornament (front and back showing here) uses the middle sized Christmas tree Nestie die cut, and the beautiful matching image is from First, I stamped the image on white card stock in red ink and then in green ink. Next I die cut both images, added two stars and ribbon. The edges are inked and the tree is sponged with green ink. This is fast and easy and could also make a cute gift tag.
Thanks for stopping by!

Here is my new favorite set of Nesties from Spellbinders and matching rubber stamps from SparkleNSprinkle. You can get them in a combo pack from I bought my combo set at the Grand Opening of the SparkleNSprinkle Store in Ruskin, FL and have been making cards, ornaments and paper pins for this Christmas season. I wasn't going to buy more craft items, but I could not resist this temptation and now I am glad I didn't. These three cards are made with the largest of the three Christmas Tree dies. In my next blog I will show the ornament and the paper pins using the medium and small dies.

The embossing powder and snowflake image are also from SparkleNSprinkle. Thanks for stopping by!

Are you making your Christmas Cards? Do you have a LOT of cards to make? You might want to visit and print some of the new Christmas graphics that have been added! The card below features my latest favorite Whimsical Santa. He has a charming expression on his face along with his DEER buddy!

I like this YooClik Santa below, because you can easily add ANY text you want on his "List." You can print him in any size you need. You can even change the color of his suit with a click!

This is the inside of the above card and it has a mountain fold in the middle. It pops up. Yes, this is a YooClik template that can be used for many techniques. There are a LOT of YooClik templates in a variety of shapes and designs. You can size them, change color and make lots of pop ups for the insides of your cards...OR use them as a gate fold card front. The possibilities are endless!

Here is another card I made for the November 4, 2010, "Hi Neighbor" evening. This event is to show the new, and not so new folks, all of the clubs, activities and hobbies that they can join. The directions for this "Side Step" card are HERE. Most of the images are Stampin up.


Yes, it's time for Thanksgiving cards! The images for the turkey and sign are from INKY ANTICS. The leaf is a cuttlebug diecut with matching embossing folder.

Are you wondering WHY I would post a Valentine Card on November 1, 2010? I just made it for a display of cards and paper craft projects for our "Hi Neighbor" evening this week. I wanted to display cards that we make, for ALL of the holidays and occasions that we celebrate. This is a simple easel card. You can find the directions for this easel card HERE. The finished card is 4" square. This is a great pattern. I hope you try it!

This software is addicting! I was experimenting with YooClik graphics for tea bag folding and ended up with these two cards.

YOUCLIK.COM made creating these cards simple. I just chose a YOOCLIK BG and the YooClik snowman image, I clicked until I had reduced to a quarter fold size, printed, diecut and done!

Greetings! I have lots to post so here goes!
I used the Tea Bag Folding pattern and images from to create these hanging, three dimensional decorations. They are small enough to hang on a Christmas tree and will also work, as home decorations. Here, I taped a pencil on the door to show the size of the hanging ornaments. :) With, I printed three of the same graphic in small, medium and large. One click resizes the image automatically! It's SO easy!

The instructional video for the Tea Bag Fold pattern is HERE. Use the Christmas tree pattern to make two trees the same size, and glue them together with a ribbon at the top. ANYTHING goes for trimming your trees! Enjoy!

Here is the snowflake.
