Hello December! This is the most wonderful time of the year, and you know what? This is the time of the most wonderful handmade presents as well! Every year I try to figure out a cute present I can surprise my loved ones. This year I designed a snowglobe, which holds layered embellishments, a photo, and a little surprise as well.

I share the template with the measurement here or sign up here to download the free cut file from my cut file bundle. By using the cut file you have all three different types of snowglobe, and you are free to resize the cut files and create your snowglobe in the proper size for your photo.

I can not stop creating these cute snowglobes, and it made me so happy to see how you like this super easy and quick gift as well. I already made three versions of them, a standard, a wider, and a round one. You can photos of little messages inside to turn them into meaningful Christmas gifts. Find every type of cut file in the cut file bundle.

Thank you for visiting my website, I hope you have found some ideas and feel inspired! happy crafting!

Hi Friends! Today I show you my favorite gift wrapping technique for tiny gifts. I’m sure some of you can use this idea as Christmas approaches, and I’m always very happy when I can inspire you! I create a few of these cuties every year, they always look amazing under the tree.

The only things you need is a piece of patterned paper and a trimmer board with a ruler (I used the premium trimmer board from We R Maker. Here are the steps of the assemble, and watch the short tutorial below:

Happy December everyone! This is the most wonderful time of the year and we could make it even better by stealing a little creative 'me time' into the cozy evenings and creating something pretty and festive to decorate our home and document our precious memories.

I have a new little creative idea to share with you today. I was inspired by Lora Bailora's new Postcards collection and I couldn't love more how this cute mini album turned out.

The base of the album is a Santa Mail Box, which is super easy to make (find the template below) or you can download the cut file I designed to make the process even easier.

The idea for this format came from a cute photo holder I saw in the Silhouette Store (it was a paper triangle with cuts on the top). I turned this idea into a festive decoration. You can put photos or tiny pages into the little gaps.

And the best part is that choco-bonbons can be put into the box, so you can turn this little cutie into a nice present.

The cut file of the box is part of my cut file bundle, here is the link to subscribe for free.

I hope you enjoyed this little mini-album and gift idea! Happy crafting!

Hello scrappy friends, Happy New Year! I start the year by sharing my favorite Christmas layout of last year: This page was created for the Winter Issue 2022 of Scrapbook and Cards magazine. It's always an honor to publish my work in that fantastic magazine and this layout was no exception.

I used the beautiful Mittens & Mistletoes collection by American Crafts for this layout. I just loved the non-traditional color scheme and the cute embellishments in this line. 

The Christmas House cut file is downloadable from my cut file bundle, click here to sign up for free.

My idea was to design a Christmas house with large windows and arrange little scenes behind the windows. I really enjoyed working on the little details like putting a letter in the door or creating a stand for the hats. 

I hope you liked my first layout on the blog in 2023. 

 Dear friends! Thrilled to share that my latest online class, Merry & Bright is open for registration!

I couldn't be more excited about this! It's been a while since I have done an online workshop, but I can't resist Michaela's invitation to EnMiCratroom, and the beauty of Lora Bailoras' collection.

In this online workshop, I will guide you through the process of creating three projects. We will start by creating a layout with varied dimensional techniques and then move on to creating the album, which is perfect to feature your Holiday memories. I share my favorite tips to add interactive pages and festive details to the album. Finally, we assemble the box in an envelope shape and create handmade embellishments to make it unique and personal. The workshop is available on the EnMiCraftroom site alongside many talented scrapbookers workshops! 

In this workshop, I used Lora Bailora's new Christmas collection, called Volver. Please keep in mind, that you can use your own supplies!

  Thank you, I hope we meet you at the class!

Happy December, everyone! If you know me, it's not a surprise that I start December with an Advent Calendar project. As my children grow up, we’ve switched chocolate and small gifts to ‘Christmas coupons’ in the Advent calendar. A cookie-baking afternoon or a movie night is a real pleasure for them, as is putting together a charity gift package or making a postcard for people living in a nursing home.

To create the calendar, I folded 12+1 tiny pockets from patterned paper, (there are 2 tags in every pocket). You can see a short tutorial for the pockets here

Then, I created a cover using cardboard and patterned paper. To the inside, I added an additional cardboard piece (18,5 x 16,5 cm) which I wrapped around with baker's twine. I adhered the wrapped cardboard piece to the cover, and I strung the pockets to the string. Then, I adhered the back of the pockets together. Here are the measurements of the cover:

Finally, I put a coupon tag into every pocket. I only added a number to those tags which contain specific dating activities.

I hope you enjoyed this little tutorial, and I could inspire you to be creative and make pretty stuff! Thanks for stopping by!

Hi there, welcome to my blog! Today I'm excited to share my December Daily 2021 base and foundation pages. This time I used a super easy bookbinding technique which allows me to add a lot of pages, pockets, photos, and stories to my album. 

To create the album you will need:

2 cardboard pieces in size 18 x 21 cm

1 white cardstock in size: 40,3 x 20,6 cm

1 piece of acetate sheet in size 8 x 20,6 cm

4 pieces of planner disc (2,5 cm wide)

Posca or Sharpie white marker

Planner punch or Disc Power Punch

The full pages are 14 x 20,6 cm

the smaller pages are made from 28 x 10 cm wide paper which I folded in half. 

Here you can find the template of the inner cover (and spine) 

Please check out the process video where I show you the basic steps of the assembling of the cover:

I’ve not finished the foundation pages yet, I store my photos on my phone and make notes about the stories, and I decided to spend about an hour a day with my DD in December, this way I hope I can finish in January.

Thanks for watching and spending all this time with me, it is really appreciated, have a wonderful day and we will see you soon.

Happy December 2020! I believe that it 'better to join the fun later than never'... this is extra true for December albums! So then I don’t mind that I just finished with the base of my December Daily album and start filling up the pages. This year is a little different, so my album was a little different too. I’d rather describe my thoughts through the month and just put fewer pictures into it. 

The base of the album is super simple and has a lot of possibilities to add more additional pages. In this video, I show you the album base and the and main step of the basic assembly. 

The size of the album is 18,5x17 cm and includes 18 basic pages. Here you can find the measures of the pages and cover. Find more details in the process video.

I used the Troquel mini bolas shaker die set to showcase the numbers of the pages. I baked the tiny ornaments with punched circle paper pieces and added sticker numbers. 

This type of album is perfect to display on your desk or use as a home decoration. The only thing you need is to bend back the front cover using a piece of ribbon, and the album stands securely. I just love the look of this album on my shelf. 

Thanks for stopping by! xo Bea 

Hey there! Today I share a new layout featuring the adorable Hey, Santa collection by Crate Paper. This time I wanted to show you a fun way to use a lot of embellishments on your layout.

To beginning I gathered some favorite embellishments from the collection and tried to find the best way to use them all on my page. 

I also decided to create DIY embellishments to add more personal touch to my page. I made some 3D ornaments and a bunch of decor buttons using my WRMK button maker.

To avoid being the layout too busy, I chose a soft pink cardstock as my background. Next, I trimmed 1cm wide paper stripes using red patterned papers from the 6x8 paper pad. I created a big bow from the paper stripes and crossed the rest stripes in the center of the background to imitate a big gift box.

I printed out two small photos from the last Holiday season, and placed them both into the center. Then, I arranged all the pretty embellishments into the box shape. To adhere the stickers and die-cut pieces, I used foam tape to add more dimension. 

I placed a gift tag next to the paper bow, and added ‘Merry Christmas’ sticker from the sticker book. To add more interest to the page, I highlighted the corners of the gift box shape with machined stitched details and stitched beads to the background.  I spread white acrylic paint as a finishing touch.

I hope you like my holiday-themed layout, and I could encourage you to use Hey, Santa collection on your next paper project. Thanks for stopping by!

Hey Ladies! I’m so excited to share my new project. It’s the 1st of December, and we are slightly getting into the festive spirit figuring out gift ideas and new cookie receipts.  All of us like to receive gifts, but I find it’s always better to give gifts. Apart from buying gifts for children I always try to create something handmade and festive for my friends and adult family members to show our thoughtfulness.

This year I decided to create handmade paper ornaments, and I also created coordinating holders to them. Pretty gift for my friends and delightful crafting time for me 🙂

To create the 3D star, I started with cutting six similar shapes out of a 12x12 patterned paper. To save time, I designed a simple cut file and used my electric cutting machine to cut out the parts of the star. Find the free cut file here

Here is a short process video, so you can see how I put together the star and the box.

To create the coordinating packaging, I cut out the boxes from patterned paper. Next, I fussy cut tiny hills from light patterned paper to imitate the snowy landscape. I adhered a cute snowman cardstock stickers with an ephemera sled to the top of the ‘hills’ and layered pine branches behind them. I love how the pine branches added dimension to my project. I finished the embellishing with adhering gold snowflakes to the top, and the December sentiment to the bottom of the box.

On the next box, I completed the look of my snowy ’landscape’ with cardstock sticker house and sticker trees. I also added a car to the front of the house. So cute!

When finished, I placed the folded star ornament into the boxes, put a piece of handmade chocolate next to them, and added a triangle Holiday Card to the top.

I hope that you have been inspired by this gift idea today. Giving a handmade present is a nice sentimental gesture and I am sure the recipient would really appreciate it. Any questions at all about how to make these don’t hesitate to leave a comment in the section below!

Hi Ladies! Maybe you remember that I shared a DIY Winter Journal with snowflake-inspired stitching some days ago. This project was very popular and I got a lot of questions about the process. I think the easiest way to show you the steps of the binding and the stitching is to make a process video. 

I added every measurement to the video. I used papers and embellishments from Crate Paper Snowflake collection and the We R Memory Keepers Book Binding Guide tool to pierce through the cover and the pages. 

Thanks for stopping by! Bea

Hey Crate Paper fans, its Bea here with you today! Christmas prep is in full swing over here at Crate Paper blog and I have been so excited to share my new project using the adorable Snowflake collection with you!  Advent calendars are an age-old Christmas tradition that are fun for all ages. Every year, I create a design to put a fresh and fun spin on this classic concept. This year, I came up with this super easy and fun, shadowbox inspired DIY advent calendar. After you’ve assembled this design, fill each window with surprises to be unveiled every day of December.

First, here is a video, so you can see how works the advent calendar, and then the basic assembly of the shadow box and the decoration:

To create the base of the advent calendar, I turned two IKEA Lomviken frames into shadow boxes. Here in Europe, we count 24 days of the advent calendar, but if you need space for one more day, I recommend you to create a pretty paper box and place it next to the calendar.

The next step was to attach tiny paper doors to the tiny boxes. I cut and fold varied paper doors with a left to right or bottom to up openings. I used pom-poms or buttons to create tiny doorknobs.  

Since my children are not so young yet, I didn’t need to hide the surprises. I created paper pockets, vellum bags, and simple paper rings to hold the other presents.

To decorate the windows I used varied embellishments from the gorgeous Snowflake collection. I love the fact that in this collection, the light pink and blue colors coordinate beautifully with the traditional colors, and it’s super easy to mix and match the embellishments with the papers.   

The gorgeous chipboard stickers, ephemera pieces, paper clips, puffy stickers and pretty pine branches  made my advent calendar festive and unique.

Thank you for stopping by today! I hope you like my advent calendar idea, and I can inspire you to create your own DIY calendar!

Hi Ladies! To tell the trust, I hadn't planned to create a December Daily album this year, but I hosted a mini album class last weekend in Madrid, and the amazing crafty vibes and inspirational collections that surrounded me inspired to put together a cute DD. I used the gorgeous Wonderland and Milora collection by Lora Bailora. I always loved Lora's colorful bookbinding rings, and I wanted to use them in my mini album. I created a cover for the album and inserted the rings into the heavy cardstock cover base.  

Here is a video, so you can see a flip through of the finished album and then the basic assembly of the base:


I used 2 pieces of 13x13 cm cardboard to create the cover and jointed them with a 13x10 cm corrugated cardboard piece. For the front cover, I cut out a snowflake (diameter is 11 cm) using my Cameo and backed with a transparent sheet. Then, I cut out a circle using a craft knife (diameter is 11 cm) from the heavy cardstock base. I covered the heavy cardstock with the baked patterned paper, and fill the circle hole with sequences and artificial snow. I punched 2 holes on each size, 2 cm from the sides and 2,5 cm distance from each other.

Here is a close up of the pages. I hadn't created all the pages yet, but the album rants enough place for additional pages. I used varied techniques to decorate my pages, like embossing or stitching, and embellishing the pages mostly with die-cuts, and stickers.

I hope I could inspire you with my December Daily album, thanks for stopping by today!

Hello everyone! Its Bea here today, and I’m sharing some fun gift wrapping ideas. Creating pretty packaging has always been a favorite craft time for me in December! I believe adding handmade touches to any present makes it even more special.


Due to Merry Days collection has gift wrap papers and tags, it’s pretty easy to create fancy packaging for the presents! I always start my process by gathering all the supplies I need. Wrapping papers, ribbons, washi tapes, ephemera pieces, stickers, pom-pom maker and more…

My packaging process was mostly the same for each box, I just changed the color scheme or the materials. Ones I had everything I needed, I covered the presents with wrapping paper and tied around with ribbon, raffia or thread.  

I then created tags to go with them. For the pink wrapping paper, I chose dark green patterned paper with touches of red. I cut a banner and layered cardstock sticker with a red sticker label on the top. The white pom-pom is a cute addition on the design, and it can be used as an ornament after opening the gift.

I have one more packaging idea for you today! Around this time of the year, I love to surprise my colleagues, teachers etc. with handmade presents too.  This year, I decided to give these cute little house boxes filled with handmade chocolate, and I hope they will like them!

These boxes are very easy and fast to assemble. They are opening on the top, and the best thing is when the chocolate was gone, the little house becomes a cute Christmas ornament!

Here is the template of the gift box.

All you need to do is download and print out the template, cut around the shapes and draw around on patterned paper. Next step is folding the edges and adhere the parts with double-sided tape. Visit Crate Paper Instagram Stories to see the full tutorial.

Thank you for stopping by today! I hope you felt inspired by these simple and easy packaging ideas and will give it a try!

Hello, Ladies! I'm up on the American Crafts blog to share a holiday–themed layout inspiration! Even though American Crafts doesn’t have a dedicated Christmas collection this year, there are plenty of versatile supplies over the brand to do the job! I looked for a green-red-gold color scheme for my layout, and I was so glad when I found this classic color scheme in the new Head in the Clouds collection by Shimelle.

I started my layout with cutting a Christmas wreath from white cardstock using my Cameo. Then, I backed each of the leaves and berries with patterned papers.

I chose the ‘Bloom in Adversity’ paper as my background. I cut out a circle from the center of the paper using a cutting machine and backed the circle with a shaker background. To create the shaker pocket, I drew the big circle to a white cardstock, spread star sequences, and placed a vellum to the top. I machine-stitched the papers together. Then, I adhered the shaker pocket to the back of the green-striped paper.

I added the ‘Believe in magic’ title using glittered foam stickers from the collection. I love to use round photos on my layouts, and this time my idea was to turn the round photo into a Christmas ornament. To do that, I cut a circle out of gold glittered paper from the 12x12 paper pad, and placed behind my photo. I also cut a hanger from the paper and used thread to ‘hang’ the ornament. And you can’t have a Christmas layout without a little bling so I couldn’t resist placing some more of the glittered stickers around the wreath. This helped add some more sparkle to the page.

For a finishing touch, I die cut a bow from the red ’She’s a Wildflower’ paper and placed the bow to the top of the wreath. So pretty!

I hope you’ve been inspired today to use collections in a different way! What can you create with the Head in the Clouds or with any other American Crafts collections that are outside the box?

Hello, crafty friends! Today I'm sharing a fun mini-album technique using the brand new Jen Hadfield Banner Punch Board. To be honest, nothing inspires me more than a new crafty tool! I love to challenge my creativity and find unique ways to use them! This time I was lucky enough to get the chance to try out this pretty, pink Banner Punch board by Pebbles and Jane!


This tool is so versatile and useful, you can make banners in 30 different shapes and sizes in no time! Plus it has a hole punch built into it!

I love to decorate our home with banners for special events like birthday party, New Year Eve or Holiday season. 

And there is only one thing, that could be more fun than creating a banner... creating a mini album with banner-shaped pages! This way you can use your pages as a regular mini album insert, but you can also use them as a banner and display on your wall! It's easy-peasy!

I started my project by creating a cover for my mini album. I used my recent favorite holiday collection, the Merry Days by Crate Paper. I trimmed three heavy cardstock pieces into 3X5.5", 1.5x5.5", 4x5.5", and covered them with patterned paper. I added red baker twine for closure the album and also added a red fabric piece to the spine. I adhered the gold 'Christmas' puffy sticker to the spine as my title.

I punched two holes to the top of the back cover and placed bookbinding rings into them. I trimmed patterned papers and photos using the Banner Punch Board, decorate them with stitching, stickers and ephemera pieces. 

In case we haven't decorated our home for Holiday yet, I put the pages into the album and enjoyed the photos by flipping through the pages. 

I love the fact that it will take only a minute for me to remove the pages and create a banner from them using a thread. It will be a nice decoration for our living room in December. 

I hope I could inspire you to give a try to this super fun tool, and create a bunch of banners to decorate your home! Thank you for stopping by! Bea

Hey everyone! Today I'm sharing my new project with the gorgeous Merry Days collection. December is the most wonderful time of the year, and I love to document those cozy days in a mini album. Since December is full of programs, I used to prepare the base of the album in advance.

First, here is a video so you can see a flip through of the album base and then the basic assembly of the cover and the pages:

This year I chose a traditional form for my album. The size of the cover is 6.50”x8.50” which I build using chipboard paper and fabric.  I decorated the front with journaling card and placed beautiful gold spine branch stickers behind. I placed the cute red car from the cardstock sticker sheet to the wreath and also added the red star decorative clip. I love the hanging stars in this collection, and can’t resist stitching a smaller one to the spine of the album with a red paper label. Just perfect!

I created a vellum pocket to the inner cover. I printed a ‘December Photo a Day’ list and placed the list into the pocket with some tags. It will be a helpful reminder to document all the important details of the season.

To attach the pages to the spine, I use the hidden hinges technique. I divided the hinges into two-part, and attach two 4”x6” pages to both of them. I enjoy so much decorating this paper size, and I have enough pages to document even every day in December! 

To add more pages and interest to the album, I attach additional pages to the basic page. To do this I used various materials like vellum, tulle, and papers.

I like writing long-long stories about my children, so I created pockets from the base pages – I adhered only three edges and left the top open - and put journaling cards inside. I trimmed the Stockings cut apart sheet into pieces and attached the date to the journaling cards using a sampler.

Merry Days collection has many gorgeous and festive ephemera pieces which are perfect for adding to the album as a tiny extra page. I used a piece of cardstock to attach a gold glittered card, isn’t it just so pretty?

I like the fact the whole album is very interactive and possibilities are endless if I want to expand it! I can attach more additional pages, adhere envelopes, die-cuts, shaker cards, etc. to the base. I can decorate the pages with stitching, add sequences, or heat embossing. Photos can be added not only to the pages, but even to the journaling cards or I just put them into the pockets if I don’t want to display all of them.

Thanks for stopping by today, I can’t wait to show you my finished album at the end of December! I hope you’re inspired to create your own December Days album this Christmas!

Hello friends! Today, I would like to share with you two cards that I created with the uber-cute Sweater and Weather collection for the American Crafts blog. This time I wanted to try something new with my cards, and just love how this project turned out! 

I have some lovely creative friends, who love to send pocket pages to each other for any occasion just like Christmas. My idea was that I incorporate a mini pocket page into my cards, and surprise my friends with ‘two in one’ cards.

Let’s see my first card. It seems I am immediately drawn to the soft pinks and light blue of this collection, mixed with some wood pattern, and of course, gold accents...who can resist?

For my next card, I focused on traditional colors of the collection. I love the deep red and green with the cute ephemera pieces!  So pretty!

Let me share with you the creative process of these Christmas cards in simple steps: 

I started with creating a card base using white cardstock. I cut a frame from patterned paper using my cutting machine. To adhere to the frame, I used the thin and super sticky AC red tape on the flaps, bent the flaps back and attached the frame to the front of the card.

My mini pocket pages came together very easily and quickly! I drew a template and attached to the back of the plastic sheets with washi tape. I used my Fuse tool to create the tiny pockets. I sealed the inner lines first and left the outline open. After that, I selected my materials, choosing a color palette I loved, patterned papers that I couldn't wait to incorporate, a couple of cute ephemera pieces I could layer one with another, and gold stickers that give a fun sparkle to my pocket pages. I trimmed six pieces of patterned paper and embellished them. When finished, I filled the pockets and closed the outer edges with the Fuse tool.

To place the pocket page into the card, you just have to fold the border back and slip the pocket behind the frame.

One more TIP: Make your letter more personal with a special envelope! I used my WeR Memory envelope punch board to create an envelope and punched a heart shape from the front using the Clear Cut Heart punch. I backed the shape with transparent paper and placed some sequences and patterned paper behind it.

Thank you for stopping by today! I hope I could inspire you to try something new and create special cards for Christmas! Bea

Every December I used to create some handmade goodies for our Children's school's Christmas Market. This year we had great success with these origami ornaments. I designed some Silhouette cut files for the different types of ornaments, this way it was really easy and fun to put together the stuff! 

Many of my friends asked me to share the process of folding, so I made five short process videos. Here you can see all the different ornaments' process videos.

Look at these cute embellishments for packaging! I just zoomed out the cut file (you have to change the inner lines into a smaller type of broken line!), cut the templates in half, and adhered them to cardstock. Cut around the bottom and you will get these honeycomb forms. So fun!

I hope you will enjoy these templates and help to begin the festive season!

Don't forget to tag me ( @beavalint ) if you share your project on IG , can't wait to see how do you use it!

Happy crafting!  XXX Bea

When I saw these adorable acetate ephemera from Pinkfresh Studio, I needed to use them immediately! I created this card using patterned papers and a simple car cut file. I think it will be my favorite card this season!

I also started to document my favorite photos from last year. How cute are the kids in this picture? The boys gave a big kiss to Kitti, and she was so surprised!

Have a lovely day, it's almost Christmas, yippee!

Happy December to everyone! 

This is the most amazing part of the year full of brightness & happiness, and love!

I would like to share this snow-lace cut file to begin the festive season, it is just a little something to help you celebrate the season… and to say thank you for all of your support!

Find this cut file with many others in my cut file bundle! Sign up here for free!

Some advice for the cutting : 

- Don't use a new cutting mat! It is too sticky, and your die cut could tear when you pull it off. I used to fix my paper with a piece of washi tape on the bottom and on the top , in this case your paper can not move.

- This cut file was created for 12" x 12" paper, if you zoom the cut file out, the lines could become too thin.

- I use a strong, but thin metallic paper (120g) for the detailed cut files.

- my blade settings are 3, the thickness is 15 and the speed is on the 3rd level.

Here are some details about my project with this cut file. I cut it out from a white metallic paper, then cut some more separate stars out of silver paper. I adhered the second star just by its middle to the background. This is a good technic for adding layers to your page. 

I hope you will enjoy my cut file, don't forget to tag me ( @beavalint ) if you share your project on IG, can't wait to see how you use it!

December is the most exciting period of the year for my children! We have tones of programs, events and party invitations, and the expected Christmas day can't arrive soon enough!

I create an Advent Calendar every year, this time I decided to use my Silhouette machine to make the process a little bit faster.

I created two versions, one for my little girl and one for my boys. I loved to embellish the small windows with some die cuts and with my remaining scrapbook goodies, it was a good project to use up my stash!

You can download the Advent Calendar cut files in my free cut file bundle!

My boxes were 2 x 1 1/4 inch, don't forget to check your box's measures and resize the cut file, before cutting!

PROCESS VIDEO: We made a video about how my daughter and I created our Calendar. (She was there only at the beginning, the presents will be surprize for her of course! 🙂 Find more instructions in the step by step tutorial bellow!

STEP by STEP tutorial & Supplies:  25 pieces of boxes of matches, 12x12 inch scrapbook papers and your Silhouette Cameo 🙂

1. step : Measure your match boxes, and resize the template to your the box size (the windows have to be a little bit smaller than the boxes). Draw the template on a white cardstock with Silhouette Sketch pen. 

2. Step: Glue the boxes into the rectangles. You can add some patterned paper to the inner side of the boxes.

3. Step: Cut into two pieces the cover of the boxes and glue them around the paper as a frame.

4. Step: Create a hanger from ribbon. I adhered the ribbon to a hard cardstock, then matted with the cardstock together. Don't forget to check the right direction of the boxes when you fix them!

5. step: Cut out the template with your cameo, back the numbers with patterned paper, and embellish with frames and die cuts or chipboard. Fill the boxes with little surprises then glue the front paper to the frame. Use double-sided tape on the edges! Decorate the sides with decor tape.

I had some bigger presents, than the boxes, so I organized a little treasure-hunting for my kids 🙂 I dug a map into the Calendar, and they had to find it in the house! It is so much fun!

I hope I could inspire you to create an Advent Calendar with your Cameo, have a nice day!!

Hey everyone! The November Hip Kit is love at first sight for me, this home decoration project came together so easily. The first thing my eye caught in this Kit was the Crate Paper clips, they are so cute and strong, perfectly usable for a message board. 

I just adhere a pretty HKC exclusive patterned paper to a hard card stock, and fix the CP clips with hot glue gun on it. I created a hanger from gold ribbon a piece of wire. 

For embellishing my board I used HKC exclusive ephemera and CP paper chipboard, created a little pocket (for the tiny pieces of paper) from patterned paper and tied pretty tassels and beads on the clips. I just love how it turned out, and will use all December for my little notes.

Here you can see the message board before adding notes.

I hope I could inspire you to create some home decoration using your November Kit, and wish you a great weekend! BEA

Hi, everyone! I'm sharing a new card-duo featuring the ah-mazing Snowflake collection today! I don’t know about you but I will admit I’m totally in love with this collection. Not only the icons are super cute, but it has both traditional and pastel sets of embellishments, stickers, and papers… it’s like getting two collections in one. This time I went with the pastel color combination and set aside the traditional elements.

Here are the cards I created to share with you today.For the first card, I have used the beautiful pastel pink Snowcapped patterned paper as a base. The size of the card is 7x4 inches. I love the fun and playful nature of the Snowflake collection and decided to embrace that when creating these cards. The design of the card is pretty simple. I added a gold thread to the card along the top edge and hung pretty embellishments, beads, and stickers on the thread.

I used a lot of foam adhesive when layering together the pieces. I arranged the bird ephemera piece with that cute scarf to the center as the main design element. Next, I placed smaller ephemera pieces and cardstock stickers to the left and right side. I adhered a gold puffy sticker word to the bottom of the card as a title.

For the second card, I used the light blue Wonderland patterned paper as a base. I love creating a set of cards that look like they are made as a set. When creating the cards this means that what I do to one card I try to replace on the other card. In this case, the design is almost the same as the first card, but this time I added two thread lines to the card.

I embellished the treads with sequences, and also added tiny paper ornaments I created using a circle punch. I also created a handmade tag I fussy cut from the Bundled cat-apart sheet and added embellishments including ephemera, cardstock stickers, and puffy stickers.

Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today. I hope I have been able to show you how easy it is to create Holiday cards using the Snowflake collection.
