Craft room tour

I will be a guest over at Kraftin Kimmie for the month of January, Ive been working on cards for the month  :) Totally excited!  

While I'm working on the cards I will leave you with a quick tour of my craft room. Its nothing fancy but its organized enough where I can actually  find crafty things when needed.

If you have any organization tips I would love to hear them!
Thanks for peeking in,
have a good New Years eve!

Merry Christmas

The big day has finally arrived!  Wishing you a wonderful day spent with family and friends.
A very merry Christmas to you.
This little tag is made with Penny Blacks Red Star stamp. I love the old school vintage feel to this stamp.

I splattered lots of white paint to look like snow...

Christmas Cheer

Its been a busy few days getting ready for Christmas.  Been making some holiday tags which I plan on adding to the gifts under the tree.  This gal is from Tim Holtz's Christmas Carol die.  The added chipboard "Christmas Cheer" was sent to me from Bibiana.

Added a bit of tinsel and the washi tape used is from  a  Christmas card envelope  I received from my friend Rosemary :)
Wishing you a very Merry Christmas.  Here is images from this years Christmas Wreath on our fromt door.

The Santa and reindeer is a vintage number found at our local  Salvation Army store!

chalkboard Christmas jars

Hi, thanks for peeking in tonight. I've been busy craftin up some festive jars.  I found some great tips and craftin ideas from a lady on youtube (Roxyfur) found here.

The jars are from dollarama and they have been painted with chalkboard paint.  2 coats in either direction letting the layers dry in between.  Once the layers are dry I seasoned the chalkboard surface by rubbing a layer of chalk on it.

Since the caps are clear on the jars I decided to add Kraftin Kimmie stamped images for some added fun. Plus also some red glitter tape from my friend Linda :)
added some Candy Cane cups to the jars (they are super yummy) !!
Copic coloured the images and added them to the caps along with some trimmings and bells.
and that's about it!
 Thanks for stopping by!
Merry Christmas :)

Happy Sunday, hope you are doing well today :) Had some time last night to play in the craft room. My Cricut imagine (which is a machine that prints and cuts) needed calibration which I completed and printed this two layer Santa image. So I decided to make this little tag since I had already printed this Santa test image! :)

90 Minute Scramble -- Hero Arts

Cards made for the 90 minute scramble that I was lucky to host today. Such a fab bunch of ladies, love them all!
The theme was to use your older Hero Arts Stamps and boy did they ever. Truly awesome creations, check them out here

and a wee little video of hubby picking the winners ...

Thanks for stopping by, I'm pooped as that was some heavy duty crafting today!
I will have lots of time to rest up as this is the first day of my holidays and I go back to work in the new year! :)
 cards made for simon says challenges found here & here
Enjoy the rest of the weekend!

Hero Arts 90 minute scramble Saturday Dec 6

The next 90 minute scramble is on Saturday December 6th at 2pm EST
So basically the way it works is the host will provide a theme and you have 90 minutes to post a creation made specifically for the challenge using a Hero Arts stamp.
(You will need to have a Flickr account set up and have 5 or 6 photos posted on your account a week or so before playing so your account is  reviewed and  approved by Flickr)
Please play along, I will be offering a little prize :) and would be happy to help any newbies (just let me know). You can see my Flickr account on the side bar of my blog if you want to check it out.
Hope to see you on Saturday!
