Papertrey Blog Hop



Hi Everybody,

I hope you all had a Merry Christmas and enjoyed your Holiday! We had a lot of fun - having everybody here on Christmas including the daughter of an old friend of mine who is doing an exchange year in Maine and had to leave school over the winter vacation. 

I finally found some time to take part in the Papertrey Blog Hop! Here is the inspiration picture - lots of beautifully wrapped presents:



December Inspiration



So I took some patterned paper and used my Papertrey Pillow Box Die to cut the box. The Christmas tree die is Papertrey as well and the star is from Simon Says. I wrapped it all with gold string.







Quick and easy and it looks quite pretty! I love that pillowbox die - its so convenient for all those gift cards that I often need.
Have a great day and thanks for coming over!

Easter Egg and Bunny

Hi Everyone, I made a bunch of Easter cards, after all its little more than one month and I need to send them out in time... You see, they are all similar - using both the die cut and the negative, that I cut from a die cut egg. The cute bunnies got their yearly appearance - they are from Impression Obsession. the egg is by Lifestyle Crafts. The sentiment is by Papertrey.

Dandelion and Christmas Trees

Hi  Everyone, I am getting tired of making Christmas cards.... I needed a break from them. I love the inspiration picture for the current Sunday stamps challenge , so I pulled out my ancient Hero Arts stamp to make this card.  The sentiment is by Unity stamps. Did some masking and sponging. I also performed a little surgery on my stamp, as those falling dandelion seeds are attached to the main stamp. Just a little cut with my Exacto knife and I set them free! I am also linking up with: Mod Squad Challenge  - Anything but Christmas (exactly how I feel....) Happy Little Stampers Dec CAS Challenge   -  Favorite Technique (sponging is my favorite)    But I do have a Christmas card for you, in fact I  made two - they are slightly different - do you see it? My materials are: tree dies - Papertrey, sentiment - Simon Says stamps, some punches, gingham stamp - Stampin' up, PP cut with a die by Paper Smooches, added a little bit of Stickles to the tre
