Welcome!


I have always enjoyed being crafty. I remember getting really excited about stickers and fun stationary when I was little. Well its good to know that some things in life never change!

I was introduced to scrapbooking in 2005 and have been hooked ever since. My love of crafting has branched out to include DIY, projects, gardening, baking, and canning. I hope to share my projects here.

Light Up Xmas Ornament


Here is the Ornament I made for the Cricut Circle Magazine Xmas Ornament Challenge.
I used an inexpensive light up necklace as the lights on the xmas tree. The Tree cut is from the Christmas solutions cartridge. I cut the main image, the shift layers and a blackout feature. Then I decided where I want the lights to go on the tree and used a punch to make holes for the lights to go through. I then taped the string of lights in between the main layer and the blackout layer. I finished the tree with a little wrap of sparkly fiber.



For the window scene, I used the Window cut from the same cartridge. I used my gypsy to stretch the image out a little to give it some more width. I then cut the image three times, once in dark brown cardstock with the window panes, and twice without the windows panes; one chipboard and one acetate. I adhered the acetate layer to the back of the brown cardstock layer. I used stickles on the acetate for the snow.



For the landscape scene, I also used the cottage from the Christmas Solutions cartridge. I added sparklyfluff to the snow cuts on the roofs and surrounding the cottage. I used the Divine Swirls Cuttle Bug folder for the snow covered hill. The moon and cloud cut was from Dreams Come True.



I attached a string to the top back layer to hang the ornament on the tree, and I taped the battery compartment from the necklace to the back of the ornament.
