25 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS 2017 - DAY 16 - Peace on Earth

Hi paper crafters! I hope you are having fun preparing for Holidays. I am presenting a project #16 of my 25 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS 2017 series!

Today I have created a clean and simple watercolor card - not something I normally do but I greatly enjoyed the process!

Once I saw this fabulous sleeping angel die by Magnolia I knew I wanted to use it for the Holiday project - and here it is - my vision of the peace on Earth. :)

Want to know how to make this card! Please find the instructions in the video below:

25 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS 2017 - DAY 15 - One Bag Advent Calendar

Hello and welcome back! It's the DAY 15 project of the 25 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS 2017 tutorial series.

I have already introduced several Advent Calendars this year but this one is special:
It's perfect for little children who can't make it to unwrap just one gift at a time and it's also great as a last minute Advent Calendar because you don't have to have all 25 gifts prepared by December 1st. And finally - you don't even have to wrap the gifts!

So here are some photos and a video tutorial - hope you will find it useful!

25 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS 2017 - DAY 14 - Christmas and the City

Welcome back to the DAY 14 of 25 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS 2017 tutorial series!

To make this Holiday card I have re-purposed some of the dies - I used the small cottage die set plus a layering background set to create a big building and a hole reinforcer makes a great door wreath! 

Check out the video down below to see how it was made:

25 DAY OF CHRISTMAS 2017 - DAY 13 - Snow Globe Shaker Tag

Welcome to the DAY 13 of 25 Days of Christmas paper crafting tutorial series!

To create a base for today's clear shaker tag I have re-purposed a window die. After all - a snow globe does not necessarily have to be ball shaped! 

I have placed all the elements of this little scene inside the pocket - just like with the real snow globe!

Watch the video tutorial below where all the process is shown step by step:

25 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS 2017 - DAY 12 - Jump for Joy

Hello, it's Olga. My project for today is an Advent Calendar card - yes, it is an Advent Calendar that can actually be mailed in an envelope!

I have combined several different stamps to create this cute Christmas scene. The card turned out to be flat and mailing friendly. I also used some "scratch here" stickers to make calendar with - watch the video to see how it was done!

25 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS 2017 - DAY 11 - Kissing Santa

Hi paper crafters and welcome to the DAY 11 of 25 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS series!

The project I am presenting today is a set of three Holiday money holder tags. I have used the fabulous "Fall in Love" collection by Magnolia (Vol.16) to make them.

I have re-purposed some dies to create Santa character and mistletoe. Some of the dies are also perfect for creating textured backgrounds - a wood board, arrows with the heart at the end and a ladder (negative spaces make fantastic bricks!).

All the creative process is shown in the video below:

25 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS 2017 - DAY 10 - Woodland Magic

This winter/Holiday card is super simple to assemble and even suitable for mass production.

Most of the dies that are used to make it are very intricate and that alone slows down the production process a little bit but at the same time it adds so much to the look! 

Apart from working with intricate dies the assembling is extremely easy - watch the video tutorial to find the full instructions!

25 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS 2017 - DAY 9 - Book of Christmas

For today's project I wanted to try a new approach to layered cards. 

So what would you normally do to create a multi-layered card? Just attach the layers with mounting tape. But there is another way to do it - I have basically bound the two card bases with die cut windows to create a book.

 It is standard size, has lots of dimension, it's totally mailing friendly and has plenty of space for hand written or stamped greetings.
