I attended a great craft retreat this past weekend hosted by Michelle Halleen and one of our goodies was the Beary Christmas Memories & More Card Pack and Envelopes. We had some ‘free’ time to get to crafty – Michelle gave us 20 examples to use as inspiration and I was determined to get allContinue reading “Beary Christmas Memories & More Pack”

Bag of Bones Hershey Nugget Holder

We’ve covered the fact that I love making candy holders – over and over and over! Haha! This slider box holds a whopping 9 Hershey Nuggets!! That is a treat and a half! The slider box is made from a 11″ x 3 3/4″ piece of Cajun Craze. Score at 1/2″ and 1 1/8″ onContinue reading “Bag of Bones Hershey Nugget Holder”

Autumn Leaves Peek-a-boo Card

Here’s a card I made using the Autumn Leaves bundle – with a peek-a-boo panel in the front. I started with a Crumb Cake card base (4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″). I moved the score line to 2″ and cut. From the remaining bit of Crumb Cake, I cut a 4 1/4″Continue reading “Autumn Leaves Peek-a-boo Card”

Merry & Bright Pop Up Gift Card Holder

This seems like a pretty basic card – but it has a great surprise on the inside – a pop-up gift card holder that looks like a gift box! I made one of these last year but I used a larger size card and it opened up in the other direction. I made this pop-upContinue reading “Merry & Bright Pop Up Gift Card Holder”

Merry & Bright Chocolate Holder

Here’s a quick little box that holds 3 Ghirardelli chocolate squares: The base is made of cardstock (5 1/4″ x 4″) and the top is made of DSP (5 5/16″ x 4 1/16″) – score both pieces at 1 1/2″ on all sides. Burnish, cut, and assemble. I used about 20 inches of ribbon toContinue reading “Merry & Bright Chocolate Holder”

Merry & Bright Gift Tag

Last week I made 3 cards using the Merry Bold & Bright Suite Collection . This week, I’m going to make ‘other’ paper crafts – I mean, it’s not just about cards. I used the Deckled Circles dies and a 4″ x 8″ piece of Lemon Lime Twist cardstock to make the tag base. IContinue reading “Merry & Bright Gift Tag”

Merry & Bright Fa La La Card

Another non-traditionally colored Christmas card – this one features Blueberry Bushel for a bold splash of color. The card base is 4 1/4″ x 11″ (scored at 5 1/2″). I used two panels of Basic Black (5 3/8″ x 2 7/8″ and 4 1/8″ x 2 3/8″) as bases for 2 pieces of Merry BoldContinue reading “Merry & Bright Fa La La Card”

Merry & Bright Holly Jolly Card

Here’s another sort of simple card using the Merry & Bright bundle. I used the Merry Bold and Bright 12″ x 12″ DSP for the first panel – I love the designs and colors in this paper pack: I cut out that DSP panel using the large die from the Scalloped Contours dies. I thenContinue reading “Merry & Bright Holly Jolly Card”

Here’s a simple card for Monday – it uses the new Merry & Bright bundle which is, just like this card says – fun! The card base is 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ (scored at 4 1/4″ on the long side). I cut a 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of Basic White using the largestContinue reading “Merry & Bright Card”
