A Very Merry Christmas by Jennifer Haggerty

Hi friends! Jennifer on the blog today to show you a layout I created using the new Candy Cane Lane collection!  This line, with its classic prints,  has the traditional red and green of Christmas with grey and black added in! The colors are perfect to add in other colors, as well or hints of silver and gold! 

 
 
 
I chose to add a bit of gold to my page and cut my title and a snowflake from my die cut machine and a piece of gold foil paper.  I layered die cut snowflakes from the Ephemera Pack as well as added a cute Decorative Brad.
 
 
 
Showing my title cut from gold foil paper (this can be found at any local craft store).   I again added a Decorative Brad, as well as enamel dots.
 





 
 
I love using the Photo Overlays that Teresa includes in her collections!  Many times I will place them at an angle under my photos so portions show through.  I love the little snowflakes on this overlay!



Here I used two of the snowflake die cuts form the Ephemera pack! I also stamped a couple of the small snowflake from the Clear Stamp Set! 


 
 
Thanks for stopping by today!  Check out this collection plus the rest of Teresa's beautiful new releases by going here!  Which is your favorite? 
Have a great day!

Good Times Mini by Yvonne Blair

Hello everyone.  

Glad to be back with another little project from Nine and Co.
Can I tell you how much I adore this line? hehehe. 
I created this little book to keep with me in my bag. 
 It has a couple little pockets in the front and back to notes or receipts I need to file in. 
 I thought I might write down my very favorite quote here on the right to inspire me whenever I open the book. I probable will write it in pencil so I can replace it from time to time. 
The next page has a pocket on the front and back to stick whatever I need to keep in it. Maybe Lists and Coupons...stuff like that. 

 The Create a beautiful life card swings open and I will probable add a picture of my family there. 
After all they are the beautiful part of my life. 
 And some more places for notes and maybe a few pictures or quotes that inspire me to live happier, more creative and braver.  This line just makes me feel happy looking at it.  The colors are so fun and vibrant.

Hope you enjoyed today's little mini book.  Good Times.  Let's remember them and celebrate them. 
I hope you have been inspired to get creative today! 
If your LSS isn't carrying Teresa's new lines ask them too! You will want them, I promise!
I will be working with Life Emporium next...so excited about that collection too.
It just came in at my LSS and I scooped it up! hehehe. I think I will be hoarding some of this. 
Until next time...

Naughty or Nice by Stacey Michaud


I have been into making simple, yet fun layouts as of late.  My time for scrapbooking has been limited as my kids grow older.  Using Teresa's products allows for these changes.  There are so many fun embellishments to make pages unique, in a short period of time.

I made a Christmas page today using the new Candy Cane Lane collection.  The Santa in this line has stolen my heart and my favorite embellishment is the wood veneer circles.  Here is my clean and simple page.

 
I split the page in half, using a pattern on the bottom and cardstock on the top.  I used the polka dot strip to finish off the edges.  I placed my two photos side by side.  I made the wood veneer circle a star on this page.  The circular Santa tag from the ephemera package fits perfectly under the wood. 

 
I finished it off by adding a chipboard holly leaf dotted with red enamel dots.  I added the Joy brad underneath.  I knew I wanted the right side of the page to be a strong vertical design.  I decided to go with the two photos and line up all the vertical embellishments to the center of those pictures.
 
 
I used the Naughty/Nice chipboard to build the title.  Since there are lots of straight lines on this page, I decided to tilt the chipboard words.  I also added the Merry Christmas oval tag, which is from the ephemera package. 
 
It is a page that documents a fun Christmas moment in a clean and simple way!

Diy - Mason Jar project using the wood grain ornaments by Cheri Piles

You know, It's never to early to start thinking about Christmas! I am loving all of the fun things you can do with these wood grain ornaments!

Here are a few of the supplies to get started - some glitter spray, a package of wood grain ornaments and an old jar. I simply sprayed the jar around the top and bottom and the ornament. There are 6 wood ornaments per package. I LOVE this project because you can easily make SIX GIFTS very QUICKLY and with very little money!

Once dry, I wanted just a little more color in the middle to showcase my ornament so I added just a bit of red glitter spray around the middle. I then cut some trimmings from a tree out back, tied a ribbon and added the ornament. I added the candle and voila! EASY PEASY!!

I have several of these jars just collecting dust and I can't believe how simply beautiful it looks all finished! I hope you are inspired by these wood ornaments as I am! I just am LOVING them! ~Cheri

Tinsel & Company Home Decor Frame by Jennifer Haggerty


Hello friends! It's Jennifer and I'm back to share a project I created with Teresa's new
Tinsel & Company collection!!  This line has elegant gold accents that are perfect to pair with the traditional red and green colors of Christmas!  I spotted a gold frame at a local craft store and instantly knew I wanted to make something with Tinsel and Company!
 
  
 
I cut a few of my favorites out of the Cards patterned paper and used my corner rounder on each.  I also cut a few from the 6x6 Tinsel & Company paper pad as well. 
 
Here, I adhered a die cut star from the Ephemera Pack, as well as a "25" tab that I stapled using my Teresa Collins Xyron Stapler!  (The gold paper clips I picked up from a local office supply store).
 
 Using my Teresa Collins Craftwell Cut N Boss and the Modern Stripe embossing folder, I created this fun gold foil card. I accented with pieces from the Decorative Sticker sheet.
 
 
 I cut this card from the Words pattern and cut small stars with my TC Craftwell Pocket dies. I then backed my card with vellum and added coordinating sequins from the collection.
 
 
 
I just love the gold and white stripes of this pattern! So clean and beautiful!  I used my small Fiskars star punch in the lower right corner. I then added a red ornament from the Ephemera pack with a gold paper clip. 
 
I backed these cards with larger pieces from the Ephemera pack and chose not to embellish. I thought they look great just as they are! 
 
 
Thank you for stopping by today!  Check out Tinsel & Company as well as the rest of Teresa's beautiful new releases!  You can see everything by clicking here !
Have a great day!

A Tinsel & Company Trio of Cards



Hi!  I love having a head start on Christmas cards.  I created a quick trio of cards featuring the Tinsel & Company collection.  I was so inspired by the beautiful diecuts in the ephemera pack.

This first one features one of the printed journaling cards from the Tinsel & Company ephemera pack:


 I stamped the 'Joy to the World' from the Tinsel & Company clear stamp set in the center and then sewed it on to my card base.  The base itself has been embossed using the Beautiful Words embossing folder by Teresa Collins for Craftwell.  I added the pretty line of holly diecut next, using foam adhesive so it pops up.  I added a few sequins to add a little sparkle too.


My second card is all about the stars!


 I started with the pretty falling stars patterned paper from the Tinsel & Company 6x6 pad.  I added the three star diecuts next, using foam adhesive to pop up the layers.  The 'Oh Holy Night' makes a perfect Christmas sentiment- I added that, along with a few pretty sequins to finish off this one.


I love the diecuts on this next one!  They are beautiful snowflake ornaments:


I started with a dark red card base and added a panel of kraft cardstock to the center.  I stamped the flourishes with Delicata gold ink where I wanted the tops of my ornaments to hang.  I also splattered some gold ink over the kraft cardstock and let it dry.
Before adding my ornaments, I punched tiny holes in the tops and threaded the linen thread through.  I added a bow to each one as well.  I layered them onto the card front using foam adhesive by Xyron  to pop up the front one.
I stamped the 'peace' sentiment from the Tinsel & Company clear stamp set with black ink, over and over again.  I added the gold sequins to accent the focal point.


In all, I used very few products on these cards.  A few sequins, the clear stamps, a bit of patterned paper from the 6x6 pad and of course the ephemera pack are all you need from the Tinsel & Company collection to create these looks.  That means more goodies left for next time, right? :)

Home Decor Frame by Yvonne Blair


Hi everyone!
I have a home decor piece to share with you today. 
I have these frames in my house that I like to change out every once in a 'great' while.
When I saw Nine and Co...I was squealing with delight. 
It is beautiful.
It is so perfect for home decor.
I knew it was time for an update in these frames and I couldn't be happier with the outcome. 
I had to remove the glass for photographing because of the glare. I 
There is GOLD in this line. Surprised? I would guess not.
It is amazing.  The touches of gold and nature together is just scrumptious. 
I know the new lines are shipping and on their way to store around the country and probably world.
 So, I would run to your store and ask them if they ordered it and if they did put yourself on the list to be called. 
You won't want to miss out on this line.  I promise you.  
If your LSS hasn't ordered it, ask them too. 
I only had a couple of sheets of the paper and a couple of the embellishments but I was able to create a piece of home decor that not only I love but even my husband noticed it! and loves it!

 Happy creating! 
Thanks for stopping by and hope to see you next time!
