Gypsy - Hoot 'n' Holler Owl

(Click image to enlarge)
For Christmas this year, my family decided to draw names. Usually, the adults play dirty Santa and the kids draw names. This is for my 10 year old niece, Payton, who wanted anything with an Owl on it. She loves to craft and wants a Cricut for I came up with this for her. Of course, this is not her only gift, just a little something extra. This is a frame I am currently using in the house so you can't see the scalloped edges. I hope to find a frame that is a little larger (maybe 5x7) and I will put a plain piece of the dark pink paper behind it.

I used the Gypsy for this project. The font is Gypsy Wanderings and everything else is Hoot 'n' Holler. I also used my Cuttlebug to dry emboss.

During church this morning, we watched a was about Hope, Peace, Joy and Love...and I knew immediately I had to create a frame with this message. I could only find a mat with 3 openings, so I left off Hope (at least for now).

I used my Gypsy for the first time tonight..."Peace" and "Joy" are from Gypsy Wanderings and "Love" is from the Sweethearts cart. The vinyl words are cut at 1.5". The background paper is K&Company (Secret Santa 12x12 Designer Paper Pad) - found at Michaels for $9.99.

The ornaments and tree are cut from the Imagine Snow Angle cart.

Imagine - Woodland Christmas

This was going to be a card, but I cut the sleigh out too big so, it is now going to be framed. :-) The background is one of the "Bonus Content" on the Snow Angel cart. All items cut from the Snow Angel cart.

Imagine - Happy Holidays Card #2

The Happy Holidays image on the front of the card was cut at 4" and the background paper was cut at 5.5" from the Imagine Snow Angel cart. The pearl embellishment (self adhesive) - made by Recollections - bought at Michaels. On the inside of the card, I cut the tree at 2". The message on the inside of the card was printed on my personal printer...wouldn't it be great if the Imagine could print like this?

Imagine - Happy Holidays Card

House with Happy Holidays above the door. Lots of 3-D on this card. I used Liquid Applique for the snow effect. This stuff is really added a lot of texture to this card. I originally cut this house just to make good use of 12 x 12 paper and I ended up liking it better than what I originally started to create. On the inside, I plan to put, "From our home to yours, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!"

Imagine Ornament Tag

Another Snow Angel creation. This one is a tag. For the center scene, I used Glossy Accents to add a different texture to this tag. This is my first time to use it on a project even though I have had it for a while. On the back, I used a stamp to add some lines to guide where I will place the From/To names.

Imagine Stocking

I made these stockings using the Snow Angel cart. The first one I made, I thought I used too much Stickles, so I printed/cut out another one. I think these would make great tags for presents. I plan to either write or stamp a name on the top of the stocking. Might also break out the Crop-A-Dile to add an eyelet so I can add some ribbon to attach it to a present.

Imagine Snow People Card

Front of card
Inside card

I made this card using the Imagine Snow Angel cart. "Ho Ho Ho" is a stamp I found at Michael's today for 1.00 and the ribbon was also at Michael's for 1.00. The pattern paper was printed using the Snow Angel cart.

Imagine Tree Card

Front of card
Inside card

I made this card with my new Imagine cart, Snow Angel. I thought for days about which cart to buy. I finally decided on this one because I can use it a lot within the next few months.

The ribbon I used on this card was found at Michael's for 1.00. It was the inspiration for the blue on this card.

I used the Cuttlebug to dry emboss the background and stickles to add a little sparkle to the card.

On the inside of the card, I had the pot at the bottom left over from when I printed/cut the birds...when I put it at the bottom of the scalloped oval I thought it made it look like a tree so I added it to my card.

MS Punch - Icicles

I found this MS Punch at TJ Maxx for 3.99. I don't use a lot of punches but I thought for 4.00 it could be fun to play with tonight. Now, lets see if I can get motivated to create something! This punch is fitting today, it has finally gotten a little cold here - actually had some sleet for a little while. Let me know if you find any cool punches at a great price!
