Even though winter doesn't officially begin until next week, here in North Carolina it 's been winter-like for over a month! It's the perfect weather for sharing this snowy card I created with Reverse Confetti's Seasonal Sentiment stamps and Let it Snow and Circles 'n Scallops Confetti Cuts. 

 I created the snowy background by cutting the Let it Snow flakes out of the same color Kraft stock as the background, gluing them on and then wiping it with a white ink pad. It creates a cold frosty look that I love for winter card designs. 

Well, today's the big holiday baking day at our house. Sweet smells, warm kitchen and plenty of sampling!

I couldn't resist making another Christmas ornament...this time using some of my favorite Anna Griffin products, Angelic Card Toppers and Holiday Metallic Card Stock. The base of this ornament is a simple wood embroidery hoop from the craft store, some recycled pompom trim and some gold wire ribbon that's been a go to accent for holiday projects for many years. 

This ornament came together quickly and beautifully because Anna Griffin's accents are just gorgeous and already made for you to mix and match and arrange just the way you like. 

You may have noticed the Anna Griffin logo added to my blog a few months ago? I have had the good fortune to be part of Anna's design team, creating projects for her HSN shows. It's been a dream come true to work with her team and such an amazing array of products! Here are a few of the holiday projects I've created recently. 

Both holiday cards were created with the Holiday Traditions Card Making Kit.

What's New Wednesday

Christmas is on it's way! Before long you'll see this jolly guy and his lead red nosed reindeer landing on your rooftop! Today's holiday cards were created with Bella Blvd's festive Christmas Cheer collection, made for this week's What's New Wednesday post. 

This card says it certainly is a wonderful life! And a wonderful season! 

My talented teammate Jamie Harder created an adorable baking layout for What's New Wednesday that you can view here.

Have a great day! :)

For the Tree

Last Saturday morning I was in the mood to start my day creatively so I made this simple Christmas ornament using scrap card stock and a couple of the latest holiday releases from Reverse Confetti. Here's what I came up with which I thought could also be used for a present tag. 

This Christmas I can't get enough of these Branch Out trees and I've also been drawn to jingle bells, metallic ribbon and glittered paper. I love the way glitter sparkles under the tree lights!
