Holly Jolly Wishes Card

Let’s take it nice and easy for this Friday! A layer of DSP and a layer of cardstock and a snowflake cut in half – your card is done. I used some of the retired Sale-A-Bration paper for this card, but any Real Red containing DSP will do – I’ve included some examples available inContinue reading “Holly Jolly Wishes Card”

Penguin Place Wine Tag

Where did October go?!?!? I found myself with a very big to-do list this past weekend – a spooky to-do list.

Fortunately, IContinue reading “Halloween Galore”

October 2021 Paper Pumpkin and Alternative

This month’s Paper Pumpkin kit is pretty if you follow the instructions provided: But…..sometimes you have to try something different.

Once I got my kit andContinue reading “October 2021 Paper Pumpkin and Alternative”
