The Magic of Christmas

Happy Friday, sweet and sparkly friends! I hope my American friends are having a beautiful Thanksgiving! Mine has been busy and lovely. ♥︎

I'm posting today on the Live & Love Crafts blog, where we're celebrating the spirit of Christmas. I was inspired by the magic that surrounds this beautiful season. ♥︎
Maja Design's Vintage Frost Basics create my Sugar Plum Fairy and her winter wonderland, which is paired with Purple I from Pion Design's Palette collection. My fairy is a Tattered Lace die. The heart frame is a Sue Wilson Italian Decorative Frame, while the sweet heart stems on the right are from Impression Obsession. Both are birthday gifts from a treasured friend. ♥︎
Wild Orchid Crafts flowers are sprinkled with Glamour Dust for Christmas sparkle, including the beautiful Lilac roses that coordinate so sweetly with the Vintage Frost designs. Hearts and love are nestled throughout my card, blossoming more beautifully than ever during this season of Hope.
A capped teardrop vintage pearl pin is nestled within the larger bouquet, while a pearl-adorned snowflake charm dangles from the tiny arrangement. A tiny shabby jingle bell jingles from the top of her wings. My die-cut snowflakes are from Cheery Lynn and banner sentiment from My Craft Spot is no longer produced.
The card base is Go Kreate's Large Frame Frilly 10. Milled Lavender distress ink accents my Joy! Crafts Lacey Square and Magnolia Heart Swirls scroll within my flowers. Thank you for fluttering on by and I wish you a magical weekend. ♥︎

White-Plus-One at Deep Ocean Challenge!

Happy Tuesday, sweet friends! I hope you're having a beautiful week. :o) It's time for a fun new challenge at Deep Ocean Challenge and the theme is White-Plus-One.

I chose pink and white to make a sweet little Christmas tag, which can then be used as an ornament if the recipient so chooses. ♥︎
My papers are from Maja Design's Vintage Frost Basics. Madeleine Lace and Sunflower Pearls from Live & Love Crafts provide a ruffling winter breeze and snowflake seams. ♥︎
I used the beautiful Cheery Lynn Poinsettia Strip for my poinsettia, which is trimmed in Glamour Dust and centered with ice crystals. The snowflakes are also from Cheery Lynn, sparkling in Christmas joy as they flutter down with a sprinkling of pearls. The jingly bells are from Michael's.

Be sure to check out the inspiring creations from my teamies... and I hope you can play along with us! Thank you for fluttering on by and I wish you a blessed day. :o)

Santa's Coming

Happy Friday, sweet friends! I hope you're having a beautiful week. I'm posting on the Live & Love Crafts blog today, sharing a card inspired by the classic Santa Claus is Coming to Town. He's enlisted the help of some cutie pies, too. ♥︎ This will soon be on its way to lift the spirits of disheartened parents.
My papers are from Pion Design's Christmas in Norway, which celebrates traditional colors with a touch of whimsy. My card base is made with Spellbinders Romantic Rectangles, which I've topped with a Spellbinders Floral Oval. I made the oval a frame and popped it up with foam tape.
This darling little scene is from Santa is Coming. I hung a few stockings for Santa's helpers to fill, which hang from a Pearl String garland and are secured with Sunflower Pearl Trim. Their base is the lovely Isabelle lace. My flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.
A few of my favorite ivory trims are layered on the bottom and the sweet A Gift for You charm dangles from Natural Hemp. These papers are precious and stand well on their own when in a crafty time crunch, as I was this week. :o) Thank you for visiting and I wish you a beautiful weekend. ♥︎
