Hot Cocoa Slider Card- Sassy Starter Project

I'm  the designer today at the "She's a Sassy Lady" blog. Click the link to visit Sheila's awesome blog!
Today's project is quick and fun!  It's a card with a treat.  The idea is so "lifted." I got my inspiration from MPS's video

It measures 3 3/4 x 5 1/2 - base is SU Baja Breeze.
The red layer measures 3 1/4 x 5 1/8 - SU Real Red.
The white layer measures 3 x 4 1/4 and was embossed using a        Cuttlebug folder(sorry, don't remember the name.)
The sentiment is from Pink by Design's "Christmas Wishes" set.
I used white ribbon from Michaels for slider bow.

The cup and steam is from Cricut Joy of the Seasons.  I used SU designer paper cut at 2 inches.  The steam is white, but inked w/SU ink.  Click on MPS video link above and watch the video on YouTube to see a step by step on how to make your own slider card!  Until next time...

Christmas Gift Card Holders

Uploaded from the Photobucket Android App


I made these gift card holders using My Creative Time's Gift Card holder die.  The Santa and Reindeer are from Cricut Doodlecharms cartridge and the Stocking is from Cricut Joy of the Seasons cartridge.
Each is cut at 3 inches.  Papers, Ribbon, Cardstock and Ink are Stampin' Up!(except the designer paper under the stocking and Reindeer.)  The sentiment is My Creative Time's coordinating Gift Card Sentiments.

Since I have older children and teenagers, gift cards are the way to go for several of my gifts.  I like that I can jazz up my gift with a cute, handmade holder!  Until next time...

Exploring Cricut Daily Design 5

Uploaded from the Photobucket Android App


Ok. To understand my little Santa, you have to know that my sister is a clerk at the Court House and works for three judges.  She asked me to make her some Christmas cards for her judges using Santa and judges robe.  This little guy is what I came up with.
The card measures 6 x 6 inches.  I used Stampin Up Chocolate Chip for the base,  Whisper White for the inside of card, beard, and hat.  For the first card layer, I used SU Cherry Cobbler.  The hat and undershirt is SU Real Red.  The embossed layer is SU Old Olive and was embossed with a Sizzix folder (don't remember the name.)
The ribbon is SU Soft Suede.  The stamped sentiments are all SU, inked with SU Basic Black.  I used PPDU for my little guy cut at 4.25 inches.  The robe is actually from Everyday Paper Dolls and is the graduation cut.
The Santa hat and boots are from PDDU.

Exploring Cricut Pine Trees Challenge

Uploaded from the Photobucket Android App


For my project, I decided to make a scrapbook page.  I chose the Christmas tree tag from Cricut Very Merry Tags.  I started with a 12 x 12 piece of Stampin' Up! Always Artichoke for my base, Winter Wonderland cut at 11 1/2 x 11 1/2.

I used my Gypsy to manipulate my tree layers.  I used the "hide" function to delete the hole in the top of both layers of the tag.

I added my tree to my page with Stampin' dimensionals to raise it off the page a bit.

I used Cricut Winter Frolic for the sentiment and cut it at 3.25 inches out of Stampin' Up! Chocolate Chip, Always Artichoke, and Handsome Hunter.  The picture frame is from Cricut Art Philosophy.  I used my Gypsy to manipulate the dimensions to 4.25 x 5.6 inches.  I used Chocolate Chip and Always Artichoke.(the inner oval is cut away to add a photo.)
