December Daily 2015...

 I finally got some me time to begin my very first ever.....December Daily! I chose a Simple Stories album....that I love!!!! I had purchased some Sleigh Ride from Crate Paper and Bo Bunny Candy Cane Lane for the album. 
Here is the cover....
 I wanted the inside to have just a bit of decoration....this tree was perfect! 
Now, there is a story here....I used the Artiste cartridge to cut this Ho, Ho, Ho and I used my Heidi Swapp Minc Mini to foil it. Can we say I fell in love?!? I also used the fuse to seal the top of the page protector....that is gonna take some practice!
I hope you are enjoying your December Daily and share a link in the comments below to your fabulous creations! I'd love to see! 
Happy Scrapping,

Rose Blossom Blog Hop Last Minute Christmas Ideas....

Happy December 15th!!!! That means that it is time once again for ....
 If you have just come from Cathy's Eager Hands, (she always has the most beautiful projects!), you are right where you should be! However, don't fret if you got off track somewhere, I have a complete link up at the end of this post and you can begin fresh from the beginning, there. 
Today, we are featuring any last minute gift giving or holiday theme. I must admit, I am always last minute. So, I chose to have just a few of these on hand for such last minute gift giving moments....
I used the new Artistry cartridge to cut the latte cup at 5.25 inches from the lovely White Pines B & T Duo papers. I used some Chocolate inks and the stamp that came in the WOTG kit for the warmer. The little red gems are the cutest touch of glam. 
Here is a peek at the back...
I used the same papers on the back and just changed the warmer to hold the gift card. 
So now, I don't fret the last minute gift. 
Order your Artistry, White Pines, and enamel gems here
Below is a complete list of the Rose Blossom's on the hop, begin with Brenda (She is having a give-a-way!!!!)

Rose Blossom Blog Hop

Happy December 1st!!!! That means that it is time once again for ....
 If you have just come from Kristine's Merry Heart Creations  (she always has the most beautiful projects!), you are right where you should be! However, don't fret if you got off track somewhere, I have a complete link up at the end of this post and you can begin fresh from the beginning, there. 
Today, we are featuring Candlelight Garden, our December Stamp of the Month. Just look how beautiful!!!! 

I chose to let the beauty of this set really do the work for me. I went very simple with a black and white daisy base. I used black ink and added just a touch of elegance with some gold sequins and of course, gold shimmer trim. I opted to let the sentiment act as a banner. 
I really am so happy with this elegant card. Now, hop on over to Margot's Mix to see what a fabulous project she has created just for you! 
Be sure to join me tomorrow as I have some really important news to share with you!!!!

Rose Blossom Blog Hop, Cheers! 2016....

Welcome November 1! That means it is time for our .....
If you have come from Morgan's Tweet Scraps, you are right on track! If not, don't worry there is a complete linkup at the end of this post. 

I really wanted a sparkle and shine kind of card with this one. So, I pulled out the embossing powders and some bitty sparkles. 
I even chose to leave a bit of embossing powders in each color here and there on the card for some itty bitty shine. 
First, I used the stars trio stamp and some Pomegranate second generation stamping to create the background behind. Next,  I used black ink to stamp the journal lines. Then I used Pomegranate to stamp the banner, followed with some Versa and clear embossing powder. Then I stamped the Cheers! and Happy New Year in Versa and added the gold powder. The final stamping was the 2016, which I LOVE!!!! I used the silver powder on that one. It still needed just something else so, I pulled out the bitty sparkles. 
The base card is the Pomegranate page in the Enchantment Fundamentals pack
Head on over to Margot's Mix to see what she has created to inspire you with our Cheers, 2016 Stamp of the Month! 
Here is the complete blog hop list, start at the beginning and leave some love along the way!

Sweater Weather ....

Just a super quick and cute card to share with you today! I must apologize for the thumb in the photo. Unfortunately, this is the only photo I had of this one. Anyway....I created this journal card for a sweater weather card swap I am in. I really like how it came out. I just randomly found some supplies and challenged myself to use them. 
I cut the leaf from Art Philosophy and the journal background from Artiste. I used some Saffron, Sunset, and Dessert Sand inks, some retired twine and bling from Recollections. 
Happy Scrapping,

Playing along at Sketches in Thyme!

Happy Monday! I am so excited to have  some time this weekend to play in my room! I got some PL swaps all finished up and packaged and I got to create this super fun Halloween page with a photo from 2008!!!
I used all Nevermore papers on this one along with the number 9 key on the Artiste cartridge. Scattered some silver sequins and some complements and this one is finished! 
I really enjoyed using Bev Code's Sketch #169 over at Sketches in Thyme....
