Christmas in the Air

Hi everyone!  Ahhh the joys of working retail during the holidays!  It means my blog posts have been few lately.....but I wanted to share some of the fun Christmas craft ideas I've been working on.

The above is a sneak of a home decor project using one of the fun DIY Wooden Pallets from
Clear Scraps. Want to see more?  HERE is the blog post with all the details.

Next last post was about a fall home decor frame....well here's the Christmas version
using the Blank Wood Card, stencils and chipboard embellishments from Clear Scraps.

Find all the details and supplies used to make this cute and simple project over on the Clear
Scraps blog right HERE.

And a great idea for a gift and card in one.....this Joy Shaker Card project.

It looks a little complicated, but I'll break it all down for you over on the Clear Scraps blog.
It's really just a modified easel card.....super fun and easy!

Thanks for stopping by today for a little Christmas cheer!  Hope you're inspired to get a head

Fall Crafting and Home Decor

Well, in the last week we went from our week long fall into the start of winter here in the midwest!
Since fall is my favorite's disappointing when it seems so short, so I'm going to keep fall crafting going, even if the weather is telling me

One item I recently created was this cute little frame's using some items from Clear Scraps, their Damask Stencil, and their Blank Wood Cards.

The best part, you can interchange these pieces to create a home decor piece that you can change with the seasons!  If you want to see how this one was created and a few more details, check out the Clear Scraps blog HERE.

Another item I crafted up using the Pumpkin Wood Shaker Album.....instead of an album (which is super cute too!) I used the album to create this fall home decor banner:

If you'd like to know how this one was created and a little more about it, check out the blog HERE.

Thanks for stopping by today!  Make sure to stop by the Clear Scraps blog to check out all the great inspiration!

Sentiments for the Season

Hi everyone!  More of the amazing new JustRite release today!  This time I'm sharing a card created with the Season's Greetings to You set!

The snowflake in the set makes for a great background:

It's stamped in Versamark, then clear embossing powder.  This is the same snowflake that was stamped  in brown ink, fussy cut and foam taped to the card front.

The lantern was stamped using Memento Luxe ink and then clear embossed:

then a touch of Distress Ink and Wink of Stella, creates the look of a glowing lantern.

Thanks for stopping by today!  More new to come.
