Glitter Is Stronger Than Blood

Glitter is stronger than blood! That's what our Design Team says. And with that saying goes this "just for fun" challenge: make a card or project that uses glitter in honor of our craft sisters. Now doesn't that sound like a great challenge here at the holidays?

M & M Christmas Poem Tags and Gift Box

My sister drafted me into doing a crafty project for her.  She found this printable Christmas poem and wanted them made into tags for gifting M & M candies.  I found this printable at  Go here to find the pdf file to print:

Afer printing, I adhered to heavy white cardstock and trimmed.
Next, I used a hole punch in the corner and added some twine.  Of course, no project is complete 
without a little glitter!  I traced over the M & M title with my clear Wink of Stella glitter brush.
One more thing......scroll down......

Before I give these to my sister, I decided to create a cute little gift box.
I used my We R Memory Keepers score board/trimmer and just pulled
it all out of my head.  A score here and there, hole punches, some washi
tape on the inside seam.....before you know it, I had a pretty cute little
gift box.  I usually experiment, rather than go by a template or guide.  
I'm kind of stubborn that way.  And yes, I know you've heard me say that before!


Additional Supplies: May Arts Ribbon, American Crafts adhesive glitter tape, K & Company Mod Holiday designer paper, Tombow Xtreme adhesive runner, craft flowers from Michaels, Target washi tape

Homespun Holiday

dEb here with a quick card AND a way to be green all at the same time.... I absolutely love the holidays.. Christmas patterned papers, holiday rubber stamps, my new Tim Holtz poinsettia die . I love holiday lights, classic Christmas movies ( Elf and A Christmas Carol with Alastair Sim )  & quirky Christmas movies ( The Nightmare Before Christmas and The Family Stone ). I am also a hoarder of Christmas cards that I receive from my friends.. There, I admitted it !! I have cards from friends near and far; and I cherish each and every one of them.. I keep them year to year but eventually do send most to the recycle bin.. Some, however, I have kept for years. This year as I was heading to recycle with last year's cards, in anticipation of receiving new ones this year, I had a thought... Why not make cards out of them ???  I know I am not the first person to do this but I think my efforts might be a bit unique. 

I started with a kraft card, got out my 1" circle punch and went to town. I used a fun sentiment from Unity Stamp Company's "Stay Cozy" and finished with a doily half and half of a 2.5" circle. The dotted paper is from We R Memory Keeper's "Winter Frost" collection. Thanks to Brian, Bonnie, Lisa, Jacky, Donna and Meredith for helping me make memories - AND cards !!
