It's The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year!

Hello to all my friends! I hope you didn't give up on me these last few weeks. I've been on a crafting and blogging break. My creativity just up and left for a while and I decided not to fight it. Sometimes you just have to walk away and not force it. I actually took the time to do some cleaning of my craft room. The closet,in particular. I store my less used supplies in there; from paint to 12x12 papers. It was a huge mess and things fell on top of you when you opened the doors! AACK! Thank goodness I feel rested,  refreshed and creative again! I have been on a creative frenzy lately and  have a Christmas card for you today.


A blue and white beauty totally encrusted with glitter and jewels! The star of this show is definitely the stunning blue and white color scheme. There's just something dramatic about two bold colors together. I've used stamps from JustRite Papercraft; Signs Of Christmas (sentiment) and Snowflakes Vintage Labels Seven (label). I've also used many different Spellbinders dies as well. Everything I used on this project is linked at the end of the post with the exception of the patterned paper. It came from a 6x6 paper pad by America Crafts called Jack Frost. I found it recently at my local TJ Maxx. I could not find an online source for this product, my apologies. If you have a TJ Maxx in your town, check them out. I almost always find cool  paper crafting supplies in there on the cheap. The jingle bells are from Micheal's. They can be found over in the Christmas crafting section.

My layout is based on the current challenge at Cardabilities:

 
Thanks for stopping by for a visit! Have a great day!

JustRite Papercraft November Release Day Three-Graceful Sentiments

Happy Friday and welcome to the final day of the November release from JustRite Papercraft. I hope you've found some new favorites to add to you stamp collection. We've had the focus on some beautiful sentiments this month and today is no exception. Graceful Sentiments is a great collection of everyday sentiments for a myriad of occasions. I think the font is just wonderful. It can be dressed up or down depending on the style you want. Like a great pair of jeans!
I've paired a sentiment with the flowers from last month's Sweet Posies set. Sentiment sets are a great way to expand your collection by pairing them with images you already own. Kind of like "freshening up" an older stamp. I've done a white and purple scheme along with a LOT of embossing! I've also reached WAY back in my JustRite die collection and used a label from Vintage Labels One. All products are linked at the bottom of the post.

That's it for this month's release, I appreciate your visits and sweet comments so much! Have a great weekend!♥

JustRite PaperCraft November Release- Caring Thoughts

Good morning and welcome to the second day of the November release from JustRite PaperCraft. Today we're introducing a collection of sympathy sentiments with a sweet floral image called Caring Thoughts. No one likes to make sympathy cards of course, but these would be a excellent addition to your stamp collection.  They are so pretty with a hand drawn look.

I chose a subdued color palette for my card; a combination of Ocean Tides and Fine Linen. I like a clean tailored look for sympathy cards; no need for too much decoration here. The only embellishments I used were a few enamel dots around the floral image. Caring Thoughts also has a set of matching SVG cut files available.  All of the products I used are linked at the end of the post.


Of course there is  more inspiration from the JustRite designers:




There's one more day of release inspiration heading your way tomorrow. I would be honored if you'd visit again! Have a great day!
