Easel Christmas Cards

Hi everyone, sorry it took me so long to get the pictures up. Here are a couple of the Christmas Cards I have been working on. I got my inspiration from Betsy Velman here: for the nativity cards. Check out her's for some more inspiration, she is great.
The others use Echo Park Season's Greetings and Holly Jolly. The tags were again made with scraps. Penny Black stamps, Papertrey stamps and dies. I am also working on some more right now and will have them up in the next couple of days. I have quite a few more I have to make. Have a great day and talk with you soon

Echo Park Christmas Card Contest

Hi everyone, hope you are enjoying creating Christmas goodies. Echo Park needs some Christmas cheer so made this easel card for them with the Holly Jolly paper and brads. I just love this paper line-Soooo Cute. The snowman is a free digi,spellbinders 23& 8 and the trees are dies and sentiment from papertrey, Martha Stewart tinsel glitter and of course stickles. Sure hope this brings them Christmas Cheer ( I kinda don't want to send it )but the chance to win an Echo Park paper pack is just to much. Love all their designs. Look in past posts for the other paper packs used. Bye for now

Tags from scraps of projects

Morning everyone, I have been making tags and small 3x3 easel cards

from the scraps of paper left from projects before I put the mess away. It seems like I always had so many small pieces of paper and embellishment and call me horder or something. I have trouble throwing them away. So I leave a pile of #5 and #8 tags and all spellbinder shapes that I don't end up using on the project. Here are a few of the tags. Hope you have a Beautiful day with crafting in it.

Spellbinders Design Call

Good Morning Everyone, I am so excited to let you know that I am trying out for the Spellbinders Designers. I have loved Spellbinders since I first found out about them a couple of years ago. Now that I am retired and have plenty of free time, I thought it was the right time to try out. Sorry no pictures until all of the try outs are over.
I am sorry no work has been posted for a while, but don't worry that doesn't mean I haven't been creating. As soon as I am able to show my work I will be back.
Thanks for choosing to follow my blog and look at my creations.

Cruise Album with Webster Pages paper and Cricut cuts

Well I have finished the Cruise Album and I must say I love Websters pages, the only bad thing it is hard to cover those beautiful pages up, but a girls got to do it. I used Bag your bags, elegant edges, spellbinders. This was a fun album. I think I say that each time. I loooove to make mini albums. Hope everyone is having a wonderful day. We were spared a visit from Irene. See you soon with anyother mini. Have a few mini's in the works. One is made with Mariposa, oh that paper!!! I have an addiction to paper as well as Mini albums.

Christmas Mini album with Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses

Morning, I finally received the extra paper needed to finish the mini. I have always liked the paper, but the colors are a little hard to match, but I think it turned out good. It was fun and love to make them. My favorite thing to do. I used a few different cricut cartridges and spellbinders. Christmas Noel, Winter Frolic, Create a Critter,elegant edges. I think that is all. I used spellbinders for most of the picture frames. Papertrey for the seed packet. If you have a questions leave a comment and I will answer. Thanks for looking. See you with the next mini. I have four of them in the works. I think the cruise mini will be the next so check on back and would love to have you follow. DiAnn
