Susan said, “Bells on bob-tails ring…” I can’t get enough of this new Christmas Tree Die. It’s the perfect shape and the perfect size with the perfect embossing.”
Sally wrote, “Of course I’m making a scrapbook layout. This project has been in my mind for quite a while so I’m glad to get it made. I used the Door Dies and Decorations along with the festive Christmas plaid that goes perfect with the Scottie dog. My granddaughter’s expression captures the magic of Christmas!”
This is too cute, Sally!
Mary posted, “I’m getting in the mood for some snow, today, by working on winter scenes on a rocker card!”
Great card in perspective, Mary!
Carol Lynn shared, “Love FMF! I just put the finishing touches on these lighted shadowbox cards that were inspired by a card sent to Anna for FMF. I’ll be hand delivering these at our family gatherings this year!”
Becky Jo wrote, “For my son’s wedding . Everything Anna! I made her hair from the pony’s tail out of the Birthday Dies. They went to Disney World for their honeymoon.”
So creative, Becky Jo! Congratulations to the happy couple!
Jane shared, “Always working on birthday cards!”
Carla said, “Today I’m playing around with the Christmas house ornament die. I discovered that the dormer die from the Haunted House Dies fits the dormers on the ornament. I love you Anna Griffin for your amazing dies and embellishments! I also used embellishments from the snow globe and mini house die cuts, and topped with a banner sentiment. Merry Christmas!”
Never thought to use as a diecut, but love the idea!
Richard wrote, “I hope that you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving I finished the ten Zfold cards for special friends and wanted to share pics of the project Almost finished with Christmas cards still have 20 or so to create to finish my mailing list should finish those next weekend.”
This elegant tri-fold card has Richard written all over it! So beautiful.
Adina said, “I think that the Oval Frame Easel Dies and the Holiday 3D Card Layer Dies were meant for one another. I made this card for my doctor, who asked me last year, if he could display my card again this year. I hope that he and his staff will enjoy this one just as much.”
Diane wants to wish a “Happy Hanukkah to all!”
Sherry wrote, “Look who’s peeking from under the tree. Here is a pic from my granddaughter taken after she set up her Christmas Tree— her kitty getting ready to pounce on an ornament. I thought I’d surprise her this Christmas with it memorialized in a photo card.”
So cute! Hi Kitty!
Marie shared, “My son in law is turning 60 next month. They are having a party but specifically asked for cards only and no gifts. So taking my inspiration from Beth. I used mostly gentleman’s study paper and for him embellishments. He’s really into outdoor things so kept it pretty masculine. Hope it surprises him and survives a trip to AZ.”
Marie, this is a magnificent Explosion Box card! Love how you incorporated all of the masculine elements!
Here is a look at the inside of the box.
Elisabeth posted, “Barbie’s tip of adding a 2 inch round ornament as a base for the hot air balloon was genius! I used a lightweight plastic ornament for these two balloons and glued the paper tabs to the underneath top of the basket. Not only do you end up with a nice shape but the balloons are sturdy enough to stand on their own.”
Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous! We want to thank all of you for sharing your cards and talents with us week over week. We hope that these beautiful projects will inspire you from color combinations to compositions!
