Tinsel and Company Christmas Cards

July 31st, 2014

PrettyPaperBook.com_TeresaCollins_Tinsel&Company1

I’m loving this new Tinsel and Company line by Teresa Collins. The mix of Gold and Silver along with the red is really beautiful.

I decided to dig in and start a few Christmas Cards. I actually found myself humming Christmas carols. Pretty silly.

On this first card I used my Cut’n'Boss on the red cardstock. I love how easy the machine is to use and how beautifully it embosses. I’m addicted to using my Cut’n'Boss machine.

It’s hard to tell in photographs but I love the shiny gold leafing in this paper line, very elegant.

On this next card I used one of the transparencies in the Tinsel and Company line, along with a few of the enamel stickers.

I know it seems strange to have so much Christmas showing up on my blog already but I’ve got to say, it’s really nice to get some projects completed WAY ahead of schedule. I always feel so rushed when I start handmade projects during the holidays.

July came and went in a flash. I hope that you had a wonderful month! Check back tomorrow, I’ll be posting another GIVEAWAY!

Christmas Gift Boxes

I’m really behind on posting. It’s amazing how fast days have been flying by lately.

Last week I shared these little Christmas Boxes on the Teresa Collins Design Team Blog. I thought they would make the perfect gift boxes for handmade jewelry. What do you think?

Happy July 4th!

Let freedom ring! I love the 4th of July! Fireworks, family, and fun. Tonight we’ll light up the BBQ, throw on some burgers and spend some quality time with the ones we love.

This little altered project was so fun to create! I used the NEW Studio Gold by Teresa Collins along with her Urban Market line. I even played with the new Cut’n'Boss a little. I love the Herringbone embossing folder, I think it’s my favorite!

I created this little project for the Teresa Collins Design Team Blog. There are so many fun projects over there…be sure to check them out: CLICK HERE

I hope you all have a wonderful 4th, whether  you’re state-side or across the globe! Make today a good one!

XOXO, Christie

Baby Marcus

July 2nd, 2014

In May, I traveled to CA to celebrate National Scrapbook Day at Paradise Scrapbook Boutique, and to visit friends and family. My sister was expecting a baby boy on May 28th, so naturally I had to play with baby paper. I spied this adorable baby boy paper by Pebbles called, Special Delivery. So cute!

DSC_0168

I went right to work creating some layouts for my sister’s baby.

DSC_0177

This Pebbles line had some fun stickers and die-cut embellishments. I was easy to put together cute layouts in just minutes.

I love the little animals in this line…the bear, the owl, the fox. Darling.

DSC_0173

I also loved how this line had simple papers included, can you tell I love polka dots? Blue, Grey, tan…it doesn’t matter – I love them all.

DSC_0175

This fox was adorable.

When I drove home from CA on the 13th of May, I had no idea that Marcus would arrive so early. I was so grateful that I was home to be with my sister when he arrived the very next day!

Love to you my friends!

XOXO, Christie

It’s been awhile since I sat down with the intention of making only cards, I have to say it was pretty fun.

Recently, I overwhelmed myself with purchasing tons of birthday paper…if I can force myself to spend a little time in my craft room, some birthday card photos may just show up here.

Thanks for taking a look and have a fantastic day!

XOXO, Christie
