Join Me in my Christmas Garden

Well, today is the release for the Die'sire Fancy Christmas Edge'ables dies at Crafter's Companion, and isn't the Christmas Garden die adorable? I cut it twice and then used parts of the white cut to add snow to my scene. It was a simple technique but really turned out fun. Be sure to head over to Crafter's Companion to see the rest of the collection and enjoy all of the festivities of our Birthday Bash that is going on.

I've been working on getting my studio cleaned out and cleaned up, and found this picture of me with my youngest nephew.  I love the fall colors and knew it would be perfect with the Carta Bella Fall Blessings Line. I had a simple frame that I covered in paper, and added stamped/die cut shapes.  I think this is one I will leave out year round...not just for fall.

Just Buzzing By

I have a thing for bees, so when I saw this Botanical Bee stamp from Technique Junkies, I had to have it.  To complete the scene, I added a honeycomb die cut background.

Circus Time Popcorn Cart.

 I decided to remake one of my all-time favorite popcorn cart.  When I saw this Circus Party collection, by Carta Bella. I knew that I had to make a circus themed one. I used the Carta Bella Silhouette file for the big top and decorated it with die cuts.

 So, I think it's time for a party, don't you?
