My 1st Christmas card of the season. It is all made from the Sentimental cartridge and the papers are from KandCompany and the cream paper is DCWV shimmer papers (big fan of these) I then put a splash of tinsel glitter (Martha Stewart) and an elegant stamp, the ribbon is also (MS) seam binding ribbon.Finished the inside with another stamp and you have what I think is a pretty little card.


 One of my favorite parts of Christmas is putting up my village. So I thought I would share it with you and take you to my little world of Christmas splendor. I put it on Styrofoam panels and then scored the Styrofoam with a craft knife to look like cobble stone and then painted it, added a lake with accent glaze over it to give it the appearance of water, a little snow and there ya have it. Hope you enjoy your walk.

I realize this is a few days early but I want to wish each of you a Happy Thanksgiving. I am going to my home town to spend a few days with my family and cannot wait to play with my granddaughters I have not seen in a month.
I hope each of you have a wonderful time with your family or friends and safe travels for those leaving home.
Thank you for spending a few moments of your time with me.
Be Blessed,
Therese (aka Sugar Pea)
This is just a very simple project I did that can be used as a lovely gift for someone you know. Chairs, Chandelier's, Birds and Bird cages are the rage right now, so you pretty much can't go wrong with them. Maybe your expecting an earth shaking project from me, and if so I apologize, with my work schedule right now it is just impossible for me to get anything done.
But sometimes the simple things are just as welcoming as those 20 hr projects. A simple yet elegant frame with mates already in them make this especially easy, choosing a background paper to match a decor and the cuts of these chairs are from Sentimental and French Manor cartridges. I cut them at about 4in each with 2 cuts per chair and some pop dots and viola you have a very pretty gift. Maybe do a series of frames to include all chandelier's and one with couches or all bird cages. I think most ladies would be pleased to get a gift like this for Christmas. They sell them in the stores for a pretty penny, but ours are personalized and made from the heart.

Magazine Ornament Challenge

So this is my Christmas ornament for the challenge. I had a blast making this one. I found this really cool ornament at Hobby Lobby, it's called a" photo ball ornament". It opens from the bottom so you can put a photo in it. So I decided to use the Snow Angles cartridge. So here we go

The little girl in the sleigh,  I have cut 3 different layers so there is a lot of dimension. The background is one of the snowflakes cut at 2.9 in on the cricut imagine (fits perfect in the ornament). I embellished the sleigh with glitter and the glossy liquid for even more dimension, added pearls  and gems. I also used white flocking for the collar on her coat. This is done on both sides of the ornament.
Detail is everything to me so I added a little snow in the ornament for extra fun. To finish the piece and keep with the rules of the challenge I took the velvet ribbon and embossed it with the cuttlebug and wrapped it around the seam of the ornament. I took these crystals off another ornament attached it to the ribbon and attached the top back on. Decorated the top of the ornament with crystals and found some fun Christmas hangers to hang it with, and added some shinny holly leaves I found in the Christmas section at the Hobby store.

The backgrounds are also from the Snow Angle cartridge and I  put a shimmer mist on all the pieces for that glittery holiday feeling.

This is just another ornament I made for fun (it's not for the challenge however). It is also from the Snow Angle cartridge. I flocked the birds and the top of the stocking and just embellished it with glitter glues. This also has 3 layers.

These next couple pictures are and ornament I made from the K@Company Brenda Walton paper ornament kit.I really enjoy this kit all you have to do is put them together and embellish them the way you like and you have a lovely Christmas ornament. I also put that fun Shimmer spray on this too.

This is the back side of this ornament
