Basket full of Snowballs...

I am working on Holiday Decor for my front porch and I came across these easy snowballs on Pintrest.  All you need is a quick trip to the Dollar Store for a few cheap supplies.  These snowballs took me about 20 minutes and the effect is both rustic and vintage.


I picked up these 8 packs of Styrofoam balls for crafting and Epsom Salts each purchased for $1.25.  I am using a wire basket I already have on hand.  I poured the epsom salts into an old container and added about 1tsp of Clear Rock Candy Distress Glitter.  Coat with Modge Podge and dredge through the snowy mixture!


I set the snowballs aside to dry and started working on the tags.  I just got my hands on the new Canadian Paper Manufacture Holiday Style paper from Wild Whispers.  This set has a really rustic style and it's double sided... BONUS!  I cut the Tags and Tab die with mat board and paper.  Then I did a couple mini skates and paper with glittery skate edges.  Assemble and embellish.


Look how many there are!


I used the Stitched Oval cut with chalkboard paper so I could write my 5 cents ;)  


I tucked the tiny Enchanted Dove at the top of the tag packing the Holiday Mini Greens holy.


I used a piece of Holiday Style Card Pack for the skates.  The smaller text and images are perfect.


I love the Hanging Sign and more chalkboard paper.


The tag is clipped on with a hinge clip.


These snowballs look real.


This basket full of snowballs will be a perfect holiday decor addition to my festive porch!


Decorating doesn't have to cost a fortune.  Most of these things I already had on hand... so it cost me about $5.  Look at your stash and see what you can create.

HEY USA... IT'S ALMOST YOUR BIRTHDAY!!!!

Celebrating the 4th of July with this patriotic card.  Since I have all these adorable paper dolls I dug through and found this pretty little girl holding the flag and wearing a pretty little sash.  My Mom's husband is American and this is his first July 4th since moving to Canada.  I wanted to whip up a card celebrating his homeland.

I finally get to use some of my seasonal paper with all these patriotic images.

My paper doll is coloured up with distress markers.

I added the dog... even he is inky with antique linen.

I inked the background and used the stars stencil... subtle and pretty.

Happy {almost} July of 4th

I hope all my American Friends a very special Happy Birthday.  Thanks for stopping by for this Canadian version on a Patriotic card. 

Make Over

Please be patient while my team and I (guys pictured below) rebuild my blog.

Due to unforeseen and sudden non communicated policy changes (by a certain online image hosting website) I have had to remove a lot of content I have built for my blog.  At some point my blog had a major system failure causing me to rebuild and start over.  Boo

Please note this change will not be "lipstick on a pig" and all future content will be AWESOME.  In the coming months I will be making adjustments to provide some of the best crafty eye candy out there.  YAY!


Thank you for your continued support, love and all around awesomeness!
And thanks a lot...
