"Naughty or Nice" Christmas Gift Box

I was in a crafty mood and I decided to make this Christmas gift box. It is an A2 Standard size card box. I wanted to color an image from The Greeting Farm's "Naughty or Nice" Stamp Set. I chose the angel image.

I used several Spellbinder dies for this project. The green ornament is actually the card. It opens up to show the greeting. I made a 'start to finish' video of this project, you can view it here:

I had so much fun coloring her with my Copic markers and making her all sparkly with my Stickles. Here is a Copic video that I made:

I hope you enjoyed my little project and thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend!

November IAR Sketch #2 Challenge - "Thankful"

There's a new IAR Sketch Challenge over at the I Am Roses Challenge Blog. If you want to play along and enter to win some IAR flowers get on over to the blog for all the rules/details. Check out the new sketch above.

Here is my take of the sketch. The picture I used is of myself (left) and my friend Rina (right). This was taken at a crop that I hosted at my place. We had so much fun with our scrappy friends. I kept the layout pretty simple and clean in my opinion. I only used 1 12x12 sheet of paper and a tiny piece to mat the photo.

I hope you guys can join us in this month's challenge. Make sure to read all the requirements on how to enter.

I also wanted to thank everyone for all the sweet and beautiful comments left on my IAR Blog Hop project. Also a huge HELLO! to all my new followers of this blog. THANK YOU THANK YOU, I hope I don't disappoint. There was a secret blog candy hidden in one of the DT's Blogs and unfortunately it wasn't in mine =( Maybe next time. If you commented on all the blogs then you might still have a chance to win, check out the winner here.

GOOD LUCK to you all for this month's IAR Sketch Challenge!
