Forever Friends

Hang in There

Hello!  Part of the new Avery Elle release was this adorable set called Hang In There.  It is a small set with some amazing coordinating dies!  
I couldn't use this set without using all the little animals.  I decided to have them all popping out of boxes!  The little box die is part of the Hang In There Elle-ments.  My animals were colored with Copics and a hand trimmed scarf was added to the bear.

Magic of the Season with Right at Home Stamps

Magic of the Season

Hello!  Did you survive the holiday weekend?  Black Friday/Cyber Monday shopping?  I survived some shopping and enjoyed a fabulous meal with my family.  After this next weekend, I can fully enjoy the holiday season!  A little trip for my husband and I with some friends to somewhere WARM is much needed!  Don't worry, I will have blog posts ready to go while I'm gone!

I wanted to share this little CAS number that uses some holiday stamps from Right at Home.  Christmas Foliage and Magic of the Season are just some great sets to own for quick and elegant holiday cards!  To make this a bit easier, I wish I had the dies to go wtih Christmas Foliage but hand trimming the poinsettias was not too bad!  For a little different look, I stamped all the images onto kraft cardstock.

Hello!  I am here sharing a card using the current SFYTT (Sketch For You to Try) over at the Reverse Confetti blog.  Check out the SFYTT post......HERE for all the details!


The Smitten Mittens stamp set is definitely one of my favorites this season.  One reason is that you can use it in so many color palettes other than traditional holiday here.....I've used blue!  Papers are from the Warm Heart paper pad, frame is from the All Framed Up Confetti Cuts, and the garland is the Double Heart Garland Confetti Cuts.

Now the best part is.......there is always a winner every month!  Here are the details:

The winner will receive a $20 gift certificate to the Reverse Confetti store and claim the title of ‘Fetti Fave. The winner of SFYTT will be posted on the Reverse Confetti blog on the 30th of each month.

I puffy heart you with Avery Elle

Love Puffin 

Switching gears here for a sweet post for Avery Elle using one of the new sets from the latest release.  
Love Puffin is a small set that is absolutely adorable!  I've used some new stand alone dies called Rocky Shores to help me create my scene.  I layered several heart die cuts to make my own embellishment that I then covered in Ruby Slippers Nuvo Glitter Drops.

25 Days of Christmas Tags--Reverse Confetti and a SALE!

Welcome to the 25 Days of Christmas Tags featuring Reverse Confetti!  I am so happy to represent Reverse Confetti on this day for Tracey's event!  Make sure to visit Tracey's blog for all the information about the 25 Days of Christmas Tags.
For my tag today, I knew I wanted to use the Topped Off Tag Confetti Cuts because there are so many layering options for this "base" tag!  I chose to layer it with the 2 Way Stripes Tag Layer Confetti Cuts.  One layer was done in Brick cardstock and the other in Avocado cardstock.  I stamped an ornament from Vintage Ornaments in Brick Dye Ink and added a silver glittered ornament topper die cut tied off with some red bakers twine.  To finish, I added a hanger from Hang Ups, Too Confetti Cuts.
