Hello there Peeps! Well I’m happy to say that the holiday season is upon us. Sadly that also means that winter is upon us. There is one way to combat the elements and that is with a winter survival box filled with essential supplies to get you through. For today’s project I’m turning that idea into a present by tucking all the supplies into a handcrafted gift box using the Carousel Christmas paper collection. Another great thing about this project is I’m re-purposing a box from the recycling bin hooray!!!
I think this combination of pinks and greens is shabby…but updated and fresh.
I’ve piled on the fussy cut images to create a nice full arrangement. Adding the layers with spacers helps to keep it from looking busy.
Painted and glittered chipboard snowflakes really adds a lovely texture and great detail.
Santa’s hat was glammed up with Sugar Glitter Paste…because glitter makes everything better : )
The sides and back are finished with the patterned papers.
Now it’s time to fill up the box. I’m adding tissues, sunblock, hand sanitizer, and a hydrating lip balm. This is a great gift for teachers or local postal peeps. I’ve created survival packs for the woman who directs traffic at the school during drop off and pick up times and she really appreciated the supplies. You could also fill the box with baked treats, a small gift, or gift card.
Okay that’s all for me. Wishing everyone a happy and productive day : ) G

Hey there Peeps! Ginny here to share a card I created with some of my fave chippies from Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts. I mean… to be fair I love all the frames. But sometimes just the right frame is the perfect addition to a project.
I feel like this card is so sweet and whimsical with the fairy and butterfly.
The chipboard layered in creates so much depth and texture.
I’ve added a few additional elements like vintage buttons and vintagy metal keys.
Spacers between the layers to build up the scene and keep it from looking busy.
Okay..maybe it’s a little busy…but in a totally fabulous way!
A proper fairy card needs loads of flowers and I think we have the perfect amount! I’ve also tucked in some ribbon and twine to fill in this arrangement.
Picking just the right chippies….
Adding sparkle to the stars with antique gold embossing powder then adding heat to set the powder.
The frame is finished with pink embossing powder that has just a bit of gold flake in it. It was a bit too large so I snipped it in half to fit the card perfectly.

Hey there Peeps! I’m super sorry about this post going up so late. I planned to work on it last night so it could go live this morning……but we were out shoveling very late and I was too tired to edit the video we prepared for this project.
I am really excited though to share this project. I created an advent calendar for my Dear Hubby. He loves really good beer so he will be getting one for each day of the 12 days of Christmas as a special reward just for him.
I’m using Echo Park papers with a fun retro vintage vibe.
Tiny envelopes create the pockets to tuck in the bingo cards with numbers on the back.
Fussy cut stickers are festive accents. This pocket even has twine wrapped around.
Loads of altered chipboard for dimension. Sequins are a fun detail to add and looks a bit like snowflakes.
I’ve added glitter to a few of the sentiment stickers and bling to the chipboard. You can never have enough bling…especially at Christmas.
Last but not least jingle bells, buttons, ribbon trims, and a wooden clothespin.
Please enjoy this video we’ve prepared on how I created the base for this advent calendar….

Hey there everyone and welcome to another fun hop with the peeps at Really Reasonable Ribbon.
We’re creating project with the December Ribbon Club Assortment Back to Basics.
I think it’s very classic and sophisticated.
You should be joining me from Gloria. If you’re just joining in you’ll want to head over to the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog to start at the beginning.
I created a card that’s very stylish and even almost modern.
I am not afraid to use dark colors on Christmas cards and I think this palate is very updated and mature.
Of course I’m still including pretty dimensional flowers like these magnolias. I’ve given them a bit of a face lift but switching out the stamens and adding a bit of faux snow on the petals.
I’ve layered a black doily under the arrangement to showcase the altered chipboard and patterned papers.
This bow is really quite fabulous topped with jingle bells and tiny brush trees.
Last but not least I’ve added a fair few vintage buttons. Just because it’s modern inspired doesn’t mean it cant have some classic details right?
Okay the next stop in the hop is Cheryl.

Hey there Peeps and frosty friends! I am allll about creating Christmas projects using the fabby trims and flowers from RRR.
This little snow globe is too cute. It was the inspiration for the color scheme on this card.
Perfectly coordinated ribbons and flowers. These are new to the shop and I already love them.
I’ve added a little sparkle with the sequins and clipped on a sentiment tag. There’s also a cute little die cut doily tucked in.

Oh my goodness Peeps we’re in the two week countdown to Christmas. How is that even possible? It seemed like it was never gonna get here and now it will be so soon.
I’m sharing a card today that is very nature inspired and loaded with holiday detail.
The cardinal image was on a sticker sheet that was on my desk for so long and although I attempted to put it away several times….I just loved that little bird so much I had to create something with it.
I’ve paired it with Echo Park papers in very vintagy patterns.
A garden of flowers is required for nature themed projects. Gorgeous ribbon trims fill out this arrangement,
There’s a bit of faux snow along with pearly headed stick pins.
To give the chipboard a more organic feel I altered it with a mottled finish and added crackling and faux snow,

Hey there Peeps! I was just sitting here thinking wow we’re already done with our first week of December. Time goes by so fast this time of year. I’m just popping in to share a very traditionally styled Christmas card and a few images from our holiday home.
I’ve gone back to plaid…but this time paired with with a pretty holiday pattern and a bold stripe.
Layered die cuts and Christmas sentiments.
Pearly accents and a die cut doily.
And perfectly coordinating flowers and ribbon trim.
Here’s a shneaky peek of one of our Christmas trees…..it has a gingerbread theme with loads of lollipops, peppermints, candies, and of course my favorite cookie…..gingerbread.
All of these are ornaments of course because if it were real treats the tree would be bare by the time the holiday gets here. Just kidding….no really lol.
And here is the same tree this morning with a little furry friend come to enjoy the Christmas lights…..
I’m hoping to get more pics today…depending on the weather. It is currently snowing ugh.
