Challenge 225


Hello There!

I had a Christmas get together this past weekend and I made this festive little guy. I am all about upcycling and this bag just happened to match Basic Gray perfectly so I decorated it!

I decided to enter it in the Black Tie Challenge from The Paper Players. The rules didn’t say a card necessarily, just a more fancy paper project with sparkle, texture, and shine. I’m here to tell you this bag has all of those features!

I don’t know if you’ve had a chance to checkout the new snowflakes in the holiday catalog but they are shiny. I added texture on the layer of Rose Red with the large Polka Dot embossing folder and of course no project can be considered blinged without the GLIMMER PAPER! 🙂

I will have some more fun projects to share soon.

Until then stay warm friends!



Hey Hey! Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! We are now in full swing of the Christmas season! I went through some old Pinterest favorites and did a little remix on color/paper and it really changed up the look of this card.

I used the retired Bigz Snow Flurry die on our Dazzling Diamond Glimmer Paper and pared it with a Glimmer Brad. I stamped the sentiment in Baked Brown Sugar and the card stock is crumb cake with coordinating DSP.

My husband is building me a new craft desk for Christmas so I’ll be sure to post a picture when everything is put together! And perhaps this will help make me more productive in the crafting department?! I’m going to go with a big fat yes. 🙂
