Twelve Days of Christmas Projects 2016

Happy Black Friday! Happy Day after Thanksgiving for my American friends! Starting on Monday, I will be featuring a new Christmas project for 12 weekdays! I love doing this! I feel it helps to put me in a holiday mood to make cards and such for friends, colleagues and family. I tend to make approximately 60 cards each December so I feel the need to make at least a few different designs.

Here is a recap of last year's (2016) projects.

See you all back here on Monday!

Honeycomb cards

Hello! I am back to blogging and crafting after a wonderful summer with the kids! Yay!

Last week, while perusing the IKEA clearance section, I found a pack of honeycombs. They were being cleared out at $1.99 Canadian. I picked up a pack of eight thinking I must be able to use them somehow...

Hee hee... My photo is upside down.

So, I have already gone back and bought more as well as some rosettes.

Two more Canada Day layouts!

I hope you all had a wonderful day celebrating Canada's 150th birthday! I hope you took lots of photos because I have two more ideas for how to scrapbook your memories.

This image is the logo for Canada Day 2017. I found the cut file for free on the Government of Canada website. Here is the link. I changed it up a bit by using patterned paper scraps.

Yesterday, these two (!!) layouts were featured on the Scrapbook & cards today blog as part of their celebration of Canada. I was thrilled to have my work featured. My kids were thrilled that our dog Chloe's picture was featured...

Here is the link to the blog post of Canada Day projects, including mine.

Happy Canada Day 2017!

Yay! July first is finally here! The kids are done their school year and the hubs as well! We are planning to spend the day enjoying a block party with our neighbours.

Making Canada Day themed pocket pages is quick and easy. I used white, red and black cardstock. No need to try and find "Canada" paper. I mostly used cuts from the Go Canada Cricut cartridge. The heartbeat is a file shared on Cricut Crafters Canada Facebook group created by Karin Adamczyk.

Celebrate today, take pictures with your loved ones and then create a wonderful scrapbook page.

Vinyl on glasses and bottles

Practice make perfect with adding vinyl onto glassware. I love how this teacher gift turned out but I must confess this is attempt number two.

Attempt number one was on this beautiful water bottle, this super shiny, non-adhering water bottle... Rather than fuss with vinyl types and brands I just purchased an alternate bottle which worked beautifully.

Next up, are wine glasses for a friend.

The best tip I have is to fill your wine glass with water. Use the water line to level and measure your vinyl and then pour the water into the next glass. That way, the glasses will be the same. I often use painter's tape instead of transfer tape.

Dad's Day

Are you looking for a last minute card idea for Father's Day? I personally think that manly cards can be clean and simple. For this card, I used cuts from the Sports Mania Cricut cartridge and Father's Day - Fan Club available with my Cricut Access subscription. There are only seven cuts on this cartridge but I love them all! Both cartridges are perfect for sports fans, male or female.

I was sent these yummy envelope samples from


They have an amazing selection of beautiful envelopes (and paper) to complete your card creations! (The Paper Garden is based in British Columbia so no duty for us Canadians.)

Grad shaker card

And the shaker cards keep coming... To create this card I used the slice feature to cut out the shaker window. Initially, my window was too large and I didn't have room for the foam tape. I scrapped that mortarboard and cut it again with a much smaller slice.

Graduations are such happy occasions. I love making cards celebrating this accomplishment!
