Happy Birthday with The Stamps of Life

Hi there!

Just wanted to share a card I made using the latest The Stamps of Life  card kit. Each month includes a paper pad and I am crazy about this print!

The large sentiment came from the Sizzix Die Front Drop In set.

Thanks for stopping by!

I am entering this card in the SSS Wednesday Challenge Anything Goes.

Make It Monday #301 Matting with Glitter

Today I am sharing a card I made for this week's MIM #301 Matting with Glitter.

I have been very short on time the last few weeks so I am happy I was able to get any crafting time!

I didn't use loose glitter for my mat. I decided to use glitter paper because I wanted the whole mat to show through the snowflake mat.

You can really see the shine of that glitter paper in this photo:

I decided to make my Joy circle with gold embossing powder to add a little warmth to the cool tones.

Thanks Lizzie for the great tutorial!

Queen and Co. Halloween Hooplah Pillow Box

Hi there!

Just wanted to share a sweet little box I made using the Queen and Co. Halloween Hooplah Kit and The Stamps of Life Pillow Box set.

I love the Pillow box die because it takes on piece of paper and one pass in your die cut machine to make this adorable box. Just add tape and you are done!

I love shakers and the newest kit from Queen & Co. doesn't disappoint. Candy Corn is my all time favorite halloween item so of course I used that shaker for this box.

I am entering this box in the SSS Monday Challenge: Not a Card.

Thanks for stopping by~~
