The holiday season is finally upon us and it’s time to get down to creating the last of those holiday cards if you haven’t already. This snowy scene will be a nice addition to those cards you’ve already created. It will definitely put you in the mood for the holidays if you aren’t already.
Would you like to make it look like it’s snowing over your first embossed image? Want to make a layered wood look? This double embossing technique is a great way to achieve a layered look for any of your cards.
Somehow I have found myself in a DIY holiday decorating battle with my brother. He topped my Halloween trash bag spider webs (they were all over Pineterst this year) with some really cool milk jug skulls. So I am really trying to step up my game this Christmas. I was inspired by some old Popsicle stick ornaments to make these giant snowflakes to hang in my windows. These really are quick and easy to make, and I am sure your kids will love to help too.
Create this Shadowbox Frame Card and turn it into a book just in time for the holidays. It’s a great way to share your favorite papers and stickers or even photos of your family with everyone on your card list. There’s even a space to add a sentiment or details of the pictures that won’t be showing when this fun card is displayed.
Be prepared for the holidays this year. Now is the time to be working on your holiday cards if you haven’t already. They will be here before we all know it. This woodsy feel card brings a fresh look to your cards for the season. It’s light and airy with a twist of winter added to it.
I’m a pretty avid knitter, but I almost exclusively knit sweaters. Sometimes among the slew of never ending collars or that dreaded second sleeve (the feeling of accomplishment after finishing the first one never lasts long), I need to just finish a project. Whether it’s chunky yarn, or a small result, I sometimes need to remember how great it is to finish a project. Here are some of my favorite quick knits.
Anything for babies is guaranteed to be finished quickly and look adorable. The color change in these cute booties keeps the pattern interesting, but not so interesting you won’t finish in a couple of hours.
Wow, it has been a rough winter here in Portland, but I think the worst is behind us! However, I’m way too impatient to wait for May Flowers, so here are some flowers you can make yourself this February.
Crochet yourself some colorful flower coasters to protect your surfaces while you’re stuck in the house from all of those winter hot drinks. Choose the brightest colors you can find to help brighten your winter mood, too!
