Ecal Users Christmas Tags

If you are looking for my Paper Ala Mode post, click HERE.

A fun annual challenge started this week at the Ecal Users Group with the theme of Christmas Tags.  Right up my alley!  I decided the first four would be a set using printables from the Merry Little Christmas set.

I made this tag using the cool colors of blue and white.  The Santa from Merry Little Christmas is cut and popped for dimension - and I added a sentiment (Christmas) and gems. The blue layers are printed with Enchanted.

Be sure to visit the Facebook Page and leave the Design Team some love.




Showcasing Winter Serenity, Wonderland, and Warm Wishes

There's a new challenge at Paper Ala Mode - The Outlawz.

For the flower/bow, I printed a pattern from the Winter Serenity on tissue paper so I could have a package topper in the same color scheme.

Finally, I finished the package up with a huge tag using Wonderland and the new Warm Wishes.  Now for me, the fun of these challenges is seeing all the different projects completed using the same paper collection.  Remember, this is the last challenge of the year running through December 17.

Ecal Users Christmas Tags

Time for Day 3 at the Ecal Users Group with the Christmas Tag Challenge.  Fortunately the new Merry Little Christmas printables lend themselves to Christmas tags, so using these I was good to go for my first four tags. 

I printed the penguin and tree on a background from the Enchanted collection and cut in a circle.  The cute "frame" shape is from Love SVG; the paper is Floral Watercolor.  Be sure to see the Design Team's creativity on the Facebook Page.  We can't wait to see what you create with We Are 3 papers.

Annual Tag Challenge at the Ecal Users Group

Today the Ecal Users Group celebrates a second day of Tags.  I'm so happy to be showcasing my second tag to you now. 

My project is a Christmas tag using the fabulous snowman from the new Merry Little Christmas set.  It is popped atop layers of We Are 3 papers - Gingham Pastel and Pastel Splatters.  I used Sweet Sounds for an accent.  I finished it off with a sentiment from the Christmas set and a bow.

Scrapbook Power Hour with Meggan and Tessa

This evening I joined Meggan and Tessa for a Scrapbook Power Hour - they shared two adorable layouts.

This has been a busy week - so not sure when I'll get the second layout completed.

Ecal Users Gift Card Holder Challenge

Here's a gift card holder.  I used paper from the Be Bold Be Bright pack from Paper Studio.  I added a glittered star (Piccolo glitter is so shiny!)  

I created this for the Ecal Users Group Gift Card Holder Challenge.

New Challenge at Paper Ala Mode

Today there's a new challenge at Paper Ala Mode.  The theme is "Christmas."  Indeed!  The Dreamy Creamy collection is particularly special for Christmas.  

Just look at this elegant paper!  Fabulous it is!  It's always so much fun to add just a bit of color to this paper collection.

The garden of flowers are fussy cut and popped atop a box card from Simply Crafty.  Been saving this file for just such a challenge.  The sentiment is from the new Christmas Banners set.  Hope you go visit the Paper Ala Mode Challenge to see the festive makes by the Design Team - please come play along.  See you there!  By the way, there's only one more challenge for the year!

Happy Birthday!

I wanted to make a simple card for my hubby for his birthday - two weeks early - and was inspired by this week's Featured Stamper at Splitcoast Stampers. 

It's a single-layer card created digitally.

The Birthday Surprise?  Tickets to a Red Wings game.

Bumble Bee at We Are 3

The adorable papers are Bumble Bee.  I used a sentiment from Birthday Wishes for my title.

I've fallen totally in love with the Bumblebee papers at We Are 3.  They're such magical colors.  Please visit the We Are 3 Facebook Page to see more inspiration from the Design Team.

I created this layout for the Creative Memories Virtual Crop last weekend.

Creative Memories Virtual Crop

I usually take a shortcut when I see a sketch with a "brick" element.  Today, though, I actually cut out each of the bricks with my Eclips and placed them.  It truly is a nicer look.  I then embellished with a stocking and Santa - both from We Are 3.

We Are 3 Inspiration

There's new paper with coordinating printables at We Are 3 - Merry Little Christmas.   

The collections have four fun images that lend themselves to easy Christmas card making - for this card I chose the cute penguin.  He's popped up against the coordinating penguin-patterned paper, and I just love how quick and easy this was.  I used Cactus Thoughts for my sentiment.

I thought the focal image really need no other embellishments.  There is fun colorful inspiration by the design team on the Facebook Page, so be sure to hop on over and have a look.
