Christmas Survival Kit – October Bonus Project for Craft Project Central

Christmas is fast approaching and there are always those last minute cards you forget to send or gifts you need to give and you’re out of time! Oh no! Well this Christmas Survival Kit includes five cards with envelopes, four gift bags, 10 gift tags, and 8 gift card holders as well as space to put other necessities all tucked away in this beautiful gift shaped box. Just lift off the lid and one side falls down to show the beautiful row of drawers and two back pockets. Make this for yourself or someone special to save a little headache around Christmas. Or change up the patterns and colors to make a gift set ready for any holiday!

Holiday Cheer Tag

Tammy has a fun sketch for us over at Nacho Average Challenges this week. Don’t you just love the little tag in the corner?

I thought this would be a great sketch to use one of the specialty sheets that comes with the All is Calm Designer Series Paper. I think the silver and Lost Lagoon are just so pretty together.

Pudding Eating Contest Scrapbook Page

Jeanna has her first challenge up over at MDS Monday this week and it’s really fun! It has several blocks for photos and paper that could work for any occasion.

I had three great pictures from the Pudding Eating Contest at the Harvest Festival last weekend (before, during, and after) that I knew would work great with this sketch. Eve was hoping to dethrone reining champ Teddy, but no such luck. Teddy won every year except 3rd grade, when he was home sick. She still had fun.

All of the DSP I used is from the Autumn Traditions Digital Kit. I love the colors that are in it!

Thankful for Fall Leaves

Nance has a really fun sketch for us over at The Paper Players this week. I ended up making my card horizontal instead of vertical though, because of the stamp I wanted to use.

Ink: Chocolate Chip, Crushed Curry, Tangelo Twist
Paper: Tangelo Twist, Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla, Motley Monsters Designer Series Paper
Other: Tangelo Twist Stitched Satin Ribbon, Regals Designer Buttons, Envelope Punch Board

I hope that you will come play along with us this week. I can’t wait to see what you make with this sketch!

Falling Leaves Thanksgiving Card

I had time last night to make a quick card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge. This is exactly the type of clean sketch that I love.

FMS Final 159-001

I realized after I made it that this great Tags 4 You set is retired. I’m not sure why I still had it on the shelf, but it works for this card. It is still available as a Digital Download.

Stamps: Tags 4 You (retired)
Ink: Tangerine Tango, Crushed Curry
Paper: Sahara Sand, Tangerine Tango, Whisper White, Motley Monsters Designer Series Paper

Fall Banner & Candle for Craft Project Central

This banner & candle would be wonderful Fall décor for your home. The banner is made with coaster board, and the matching candle is stamped, along with other embellishments. Make one set to keep as your own, and make another set to give as a gift. This would also make a great Fall-themed class.

Box of Tissues Card

My friend Debbi is hosting today’s Hope You Can Cling to Challenge over at Splitcoast Stampers today, and I promised her that I would play along. Her challenge is to use to tissue paper on your card, and she has some great technique ideas. I decided to take the challenge a little more literally, and made a mini tissue box for my card. These were popping up on blogs a few years back, and I always meant to make one.

Stamps: Sassy Salutations
Ink: Mossy Meadow
Paper: Pistachio Pudding, Blushing Bride, Strawbery Slush, All Abloom Designer Series Paper Pack
Other: Large Oval Punch, Scallop Oval Punch, Stylish Stripes Embossing Folder, Simply Scored, tissue

This card can be sent to someone who is sick or someone who is sad, or even has really bad allergies.
