TCP TUESDAY #352 Reminder


I know everyone is excited about Sneaky Peek Week (today is Nancy's day) over at The Cat's Pajamas, but there are a couple of other things too.  First off, it is reminder week for the TCP Tuesday Winter Holiday Challenge.  All you have to do is link up your holiday creation by December 18 for a chance to win a $50 TCP voucher.

Here's a little Christmas shaker card I put together awhile back and never shared.  I hope it will serve as a bit of inspiration -


You can see the cute little snowman from We Three Snowmen, a sentiment from Santa Is Coming and the Holiday Window Duo Die.  If you need any of these items, you may want to check out the other reminder...the TCP Black Friday sale!


What, 40% off!?!?  YES!!!   What a wonderful way to get plenty of Christmas goodies for your crafty friends and to stock up for yourself too!

Aloha,
Brenda

Sketch Saturday #540


Join us this week for Sketch Saturday #540.  This is a great sketch drawn by our very own Claire.  Our wonderful sponsor this week is one of my favorites, A Day for Daisies.




I decided to take the liberty of flipping the sketch on it's side.



Here's what happened for me using an image provided by A Day for Daisies, Christmas Poinsettia -


I really like this sketch and this card was made so easy using up some of the thousands of yards washi tape I have in my stash😏.

Come on over and play cards with us this week.  Check out the Sketch Saturday blog for details on the challenge and the prize that is up for grabs

Aloha,

Mini 2

I have a few more pages from the mini file folder album created with the newest Frantic Stamper goodies. The Brocade Lace Corners (FRA-DIE-10546) make a perfect place to tuck tags or pictures on the left side. This die includes two different corner designs. The wonderful Great Big Winter Tag die (FRA-DIE-10529) is from the October release.

The right side features the center heart from Floral Lace Heart (FRA-DIE-10549) and another heart "leftover" from Cascading Hearts (FRA-DIE-10553).




An extra page drops down from the left side and shows off the other Brocade Lace Corner (FRA-DIE-10546) and a journaling spot embellished with the gorgeous Romantic Damask stencil (FRA-STN-021).  Another tag (FRA-DIE-10429) is a surprise journaling spot.


Here is the other side of the above flap. This shows how the Lots of Love die (FRA-DIE-10556) was used to decorate the flap where yet another tag (FRA-DIE-10529) is hiding.  The tag is embellished with the Giant Layered Hugs die (FRA-DIE-10555)

As you can see, all these dies work so well together.  They allow you to create all sorts of little spots for pictures or notes.  Check out the full release and all the new goodies at the Frantic Stamper shop.

Thanks for the peek!

Aloha,
Brenda

Fairytale Love Mini

I loved the Fairytale Love release From Frantic Stamper. All the dies work so well together, I was inspired to make a mini book from a file folder that contains all sorts of little nooks and crannies for pictures and notes. I'll be sharing it with you over the next few days. Here's the first page which features Cascading Hearts (FRA-DIE-10553and Brocade Lace Edger (FRA-DIE-10547). The heart banner was created using leftover hearts. 


After you flip the mini open, you can see the next 2 pages.  On the right you'll see Brocade Lace Edger again which is a perfect place to tuck a note card embellished by embossing with the Romantic Damask (FRA-STN-021) stencil and a little heart from Cascading Hearts (FRA-DIE-10553).  The circle tab was made with Stitched Circles (FRA-DIE-09637) from a previous release.


On the left side you'll see one of the great new clear stamps, Giant Hugs (FRA-CL-117).  I love this and the Giant Love stamp.  The size is wonderful and will allow it to stand on its own.  You'll also see a few more hearts from Cascading Hearts.

Cascading Hearts

I have to say Frantic Stamper has done it again! The Fairytale Love release is wonderful. Here's a simple to make card using Cascading Hearts (FRA-DIE-10553) and Retro Label Maker clear stamps (FRA-CL-119). This release is perfect for Valentine's Day and so many other occasions.





For my second card, I'm using Scribbled Heart Wreath (FRA-DIE-10550), Retro Label Maker clear stamps (FRA-CL-119) and Castle Ramparts and Grassy Edgers (FRA-DIE-10561). The sweet little flowers are also from the Scribbled Heart Wreath set.



Stay tuned, I have so many more wonderful new dies to share will you! Thanks for taking a look.

Aloha,
Brenda
