Christmas Series 2016|Day #9 Into the Woods Shaker Card

Happy Friday! I have another Christmas Series video to share with you today! It features a simple shaker card made with one stamp set and a bunch of different dies. The set is called “Into the Woods” and I just found out that it will soon be retiring, so if you want it, you had better nab it soon. The good news is that it is presently on sale!


I love the fact that the animals are in silhouette. It just was the perfect set to create a shaker card with. I layerd Neenah cardstock and vellum to create soft snow drifts and used to types of shaker components: fine glitter and seed beads. I love the pop of red on the little bird perched on the tree. I makes this card “Chrismas-y”!


The video which can be found just below will take you through the steps to create a shaker card and I also have a trick to getting the perfect with edging around your stamped die-cut shapes. If you want something very precise, this will make you happy!

Whismy Stamps December Digital Release

Happy Thursday and Happy First day in December. Lots of Advent Calendars were opened up in our house today! I always get ones filled with chocolate for my boys and this year…. I have an advent calendar as well…except mine is from L’Occitane en Provence and is filled with creams, lotions and hair products! So very exciting!

The day is finally here and the December Digital release is now available. I am in absolute love with all of Crissy’s new illustrations and papers. If that wasn’t enough, we have amazing new sentiments and papers designed by Tracy as well! I think I have enough to last we through the rest of this festive season! I cannot wait to start playing with all these new products!

Here is what I created:


If you have followed me for awhile, then you know that I love to create custom 6 x 8 page inserts for my December Daily albums. With all these amazing digital products release this month by Whimsy, I can create to my heart’s content. This image was so sweet and perfect to use. I did a little adjusting to make the star appear higher up on the page, added a sentiment and created the night background by layering two digital papers over top one another.


I have created a few pages like this and have received a ton of questions on how to create them, so I made a video. I have a disclaimer first :) I am no expert in photoshop and have just learmed to do things along the way. This is just my way to doing things and there may be better and easier ways to do things. So here is the video:

Christmas Series 2016 | Day #8 Rocking Horse

Happy Monday! If you follow me on Instagram then you know that I was away for a few days last week. Hubby and I were finally able to take a trip to celebrate our anniversary! We went somewhere warm and tropical and it was the perfect trip! I am back fully refreshed and ready to start celebrating the Christmas season. Mother Nature helped out with the first winter snowfall of the year! It certainly looks like Christmas outside with all the snow!

I have a new project to share with you that I created for my 2016 video Christmas series. I made an insert page for my December Daily album that features a very sweet image illustrated by Sylvia Zet. I love the old fashioned feel to the image and pulled my color pallette from one of Whimsy’s new Christmas paper packs.

I incorporated a slider component to the page so that the rocking horse slides back and forth and rocks as well :) I love to add interactive aspects to my December Daily to make it fun and surprising.


The large poinsettia was hand-made using the new die set from Whimsy and matching papers from the paper pack. It was very easily created and the addition of stickles to the center brings a little bling that is also picked up by adding thin strips of glittery ribbon to where the two papers meet at the top and at the bottom.
