Happy New Year!

Hello! Today is my post over at Stamp Anniething.  I have a new card made with Melanie and added a sentiment from Jaded Blossom. She is one of my favorites to color because I love the sweep of her hair. Something new I wanted to try this year is making videos for you. Three days later I have a video... and my daughters can't stop laughing at my video debut. Sheesh. To be honest, I laughed at myself too. Kudos to all the crafty peeps that make videos on a regular basis :)

Next I used the New Dies to make a Christmas Banner. The elves are cut on my Cricut Explore, Jolly Holidays cartridge. The font is also from Cricut, Opposites Attract. After I assembled the banner pieces I attached a paperclip to the backs so they could be hooked to the ribbon. Pattern paper for the elves is from Doodlebug Designs, banner bases are cut from Mambi, Ellen Krans.
Here is a closer look at the elves and banner panels:

Heartwarming Felicity

Hello Everyone! Today I am posting over at Stamp Annie Thing. I colored up the Felicity Hello Stamp with Copic Markers. Felicity is cut out with the SVG outline that is a downloadable for each of the Chibi Kid stamps. The pattern paper is from Lawn Fawn's "Sweater Weather" and I thought the printed sentiment was perfect for Felicity. I added a "button heart" from Jaded Blossom's Valentine Dies.
