Shadow Box Wise Men Card

I love the new shadow box cards designed by Lori Whitlock. She is so creative and I love all her new cards.  Be sure to check out her video  to see all her new designs and a step by step tutorial.


For this card, I used the Shadow Box Card Wise Men (#153166) file that I purchased from the Silhouette on-line store. This card will lay flat so you can mail it in a regular envelope. Too clever!


I used Stickles to add glitter to the star. I used Scor-Tape on the binding instead of glue and it worked great.

Thanks for stopping by and have a marvelous Monday.

SOS Sunday

Welcome to Simply Organized Sunday…SOS for short. Every Sunday I showcase blogs, websites or posts that provide innovative approaches to organizing and designing your craft space as well as other areas in your home.

I enjoy making all type of journals and I am loving my bullet journal, however, this post from Too Much on Her Plate caught my attention.


I like all of Dr. Melissa McCreery’s recommendations for planners and my favorite one is below.
According to Danielle Laporte the creator of this unique planner, “ When you’re clear on how you want to feel, decisions come to you more easily, you’ll know when to say “No” and when to say “Hell, YES!” And then you’ll put it in writing. This planner is designed to help you connect with what you most want, every day, and plan your life accordingly.”

Click here to see her Desire Map Planner and to view some sample pages. I love her concept and I hope Santa brings me her planner for Christmas!

Have a wonderfully organized Sunday!

Fab Five Friday Deer Style

Welcome to Fab Five Friday. For those of you that are new to this blog, every Friday I showcase five blogs, websites or posts that I think you will enjoy. This week it is all about the deer image trend!


I love how everyone is featuring images of deer in their projects. This project designed by Emma from That’s Life is stunning. Click here for the info.


 A special thanks to my sister for sending me this link. The Christmas Curio Cabinet is beautiful and also features deer. Check out Stamptramp for more photos.



Heather created two gorgeous shaker cards. Are you seeing a theme?

Speaking of deer cards, click here to see hundreds of them posted on Pinterest. You are going to love this link!


My sister also sent me this link and I am so happy she did. I have used the stripe technique, but I did not think to combine it with an inlay.

Click here for step by step instructions from Dianne.

I hope you are having a deer-lightful Friday!

Jingle Java Christmas

I am a bit behind filming this week’s video so I thought I would post an oldie. I hope to have the video for you next week. I am doing a review of Anna Griffin’s new foiling kit plus I want to show you a quick and easy trick to get perfect foiling results every time!


I can’t wait for my morning latte and thought this might be the perfect Christmas card for some of my caffeine addicted friends. The finished card measures 3 ½ x 6 inches and thanks to SVG Cuts was super quick and easy to make


The Cameo cuts perfectly every time, even using metallic embossed paper.


I love the look of the inside.

Have a great week!

Make it in Minutes Monday

Welcome to Make it in Minutes Monday. I thought it would be fun to feature quick and easy cards or projects that take only minutes to make, but look like you spent more time making them.


For this card, I used the A2 Flexi Card Gingerbread House (#158137) that I purchased from the Silhouette on-line store. I did not use the print and cut sentiment included with the file. Instead, I used a celebrate die cut sentiment from My Creative Time. This card has two side flaps that fold and tuck to create a curved front. When you unhook the side flaps the card lays flat and fits in a envelope for mailing.


I used Stickles to add glitter to the snowflakes and a vintage embossing folder to add dimension. It really is an easy card to put together, however the layers do take a bit of patience.

Thanks for stopping by and have a marvelous Monday!

Quck and Easy Christmas Card


For this card, I used the Christmas Bell Card (#MB350A) from the Anna’s Christmas Kitsch Cricut Cartridge. The image size is 10.44 wide and 6.76 inches high.


I love how my Cricut Explore cuts glitter paper like butter!


I used glitter paper to layer behind my card and used pop dots to add stickers from my Anna Griffin stash. I love how the bell is shaped.

Thanks for stopping by and have a marvelous day!

Make it in Minutes Monday

Welcome to Make it in Minutes Monday. I thought it would be fun to feature quick and easy cards or projects that take only minutes to make, but look like you spent more time making them.


I have a couple of large Christmas presents to wrap and all the tags I have made are too small. I decided to super-size my tags to fit my packages. To make the Happy Holidays Tag and the Pine Cone Tag I used the Woodland Wonderful Tags (#M197AFA) from Rob and Bob.


To make this quick and easy Christmas card I used the Something to Celebrate Card (#MB2A83) from Anna’s Christmas Kitsch Cricut Cartridge.

The card image measures 5.51 x 8.48 inches. I used paper from my stash and was done. This is a really acute and simple Christmas Card!

Thanks for stopping by and have a marvelous day!

Make it in Minutes Monday

Welcome to Make it in Minutes Monday. I thought it would be fun to feature quick and easy cards or projects that take only minutes to make, but look like you spent more time making them.


For these adorable sticky note holders, I used the Sticky Note Purse (#M90B774) from the To You From Me Cricut Cartridge.


The images measures 4.94 x 9.75. I used paper and bows from my stash, and dies to cut the sentiments. This was a really quick and easy project!

These would make great party favors or gifts. If you changed the paper, these would also make fun Christmas favors too!

Thanks for stopping by and have a marvelous day!

Wednesday Rewind

Hi everyone! Sorry I have not been posting. I developed a secondary viral infection after recovering from the flu. My doctor insisted on bed rest so no crafting. I am feeling better, but my posting may be sporadic for a while. The following card is one of my all-time favorites. It always makes me smile!


If you are looking for a quick and easy Christmas card, be sure to check out Jamie’s A2 Penguin card Silhouette file.


Since I wanted more dimension, I added pop dots to the back of the penguin and to his feet. I also added a chipboard accent and was done.

Hope you are having a wonderful week!
