Hello! I hope you all have an amazing Christmas! We sure did!! Even though the excitement of Christmas itself is over I love looking forward to the kids being off this week, relaxing, doing wintery crafts. Today, I'm sharing a cute interactive birthday card over on the Gerda Steiner Designs blog using the What's On The Table digital stamp. We have lots of winter birthdays in our house, so you can never have too many cards on hand!
Here's a look at the flip slider element in action -

Hello! I’m getting super excited about Christmas coming, and even though I still have a ton of things to do, I’m enjoying the holiday season! These pretty ornaments that I made for the Southern Ridge Trading Company blog today were quick and easy, and a wonderful holiday project!
Here’s a look at the video where you can see how I put them all together!
Hello! Hope you all had a great weekend. We took it easy, did some crafting - of course - and watched some Christmas Classics. My favourite thing to do is snuggle up on the couch in the living room with the Christmas Tree on. I have to remind myself to just sit and relax sometimes! Since we're in the festive spirit, I definitely wanted to share a tutorial I have over at the Canvas Corp Brands Blog where I'm creating three Christmas ornaments for this month's Christmas Bulb challenge. I'm using beautiful pre-printed canvas in the Canvas Corp Jolly Christmas Mix & Match Pad from the Canvas Corp Brands Shop. These are quick and easy to stitch up for your own tree or as a gift set.
Here's inspiration for our challenge! We'd love for you to join us. You can link up HERE. Just use at least one product from Canvas Corp, 7gypsies or Tattered Angels!

Hello! I hope you all had a fantastic weekend! We got our tree decorated and put up lots of fun Christmasy decor in the house and spent Sunday making Christmas Cards with some friends - so we are definitely in the spirit! Today, I'm over on the Southern Ridge Trading Company blog with a lovely winter layout using a photo of the girls and their sleds on one of our first snow days in Alberta, which was quite early - in October. While the adults were all grumbling a bit, the kids thought it was fantastic and spent their time after school sledding down the nearby hills! I used some beautiful chipboard and wood veneer embellishments from the SRTC Shop to add to the snowy, sledding theme and had so much fun creating!

Hello friends! I am so excited to be participating in the Canvas Corp Brands Christmas Blog Hop today!! If you aren't familiar with Canvas Corp Brands, this wonderful company owns Canvas Corp, Tattered Angels and 7gypsies - three amazing companies themselves with beautiful, well made and trending products. There is such an awesome assortment of goodies in the CCB Shop you'll have no problem choosing just the right products for your own projects! Today, I'm sharing a lovely Christmas Apron, and I can't wait to show you. 🎄 I started off by using one of the pre-sewn Canvas Corp canvas aprons. They are a great sturdy material and perfect to customize for any holiday or some special person on your Christmas Gift List!
I gathered a piece of the pretty blue ticking fringe and sewed it along the top of the apron.
I grabbed a pre-sewn canvas flower and sprayed it with Rose Gold Glimmer Mist and then added a cute reindeer button. I attached it to the apron with a safety pin so I could remove it if I needed to.
The Tattered Angels High Impact Paints were perfect to paint in the cute reindeer from an iron on transfer I found at Michaels. It looks so vintage and they remind me of the transfers I used to paint on as a kid!
Thanks so much for stopping by! I can't wait to wear my new apron to do some Christmas baking and crafting! Be sure to head over to Karen's blog next to see her fabulous festive project and have a fun and crafty weekend!
Hi Friends! I hope you've been having a lovely week so far! I've had lots of fun creating projects lately and here's one more for you! It's time for the midweek inspiration for Challenge #132 over at the Kitty Bee Designs Challenge Blog - Aloha Friday!
All Wrapped Up
Super big thanks to our sponsor for this challenge:
For this challenge I decided to create a cute Christmas card using the adorable Snowman and Friends Digital Stamp from Kinda Cute by Patricia. He looks so happy surrounded by his little animal friends! I coloured the image with an assortment of Copics, Prismacolor and Hobby Colour Markers to match the Heartfelt Creations Paper Pad I've been using lately! I just love the pinks and teals for a little change up to the regular holiday colour scheme.
I used a stitched square die to cut out the image and then layered it on top of the papers, ribbon, and an embossed piece of matching teal cardstock. Some Stickles and SpiegelMom Scraps sequins add just a little extra bling for Christmas Cheer! (PS be sure to use the code KARLA15 to save 15% at the SMS Shop!)

Hello friends! I hope you've been having a wonderful week!! I'm over on the Kitty Bee Designs blog today sharing this adorable iPod Panda digi stamp from Kitty Bee Designs. This card would be perfect for a birthday, congrats or simply a friendly hello! And, I think we all could use more of those!! I coloured this cutie up with Prismacolor Markers, which are alcohol based and cut him out with a stitched tag die.
I used papers and the star diecut from the SCT Sampler Pack, which coordinated perfectly, and added a few shiny clear enamel dots.
