Or, do you have a group or class you need to make some treats for?

Our challenge this week may help to spark some ideas for you.

This week over at Die Cuttin' Divas the challenge is to "Make A Box"

.




As I often do, I went to the Silhouette Store for some inspiration.

I came across this Christmas Box House by Lori Whitlock, which you can purchase here.




I Fell in love with this little Christmas house.



It was surprisingly easy to put together and make such a cute little 3D scene with the trees, the picket fence and the presents.

How fun to receive a little gift in this box and then be able to use it as a decoration too!



Supplies used: card stock - white, black, 2 shades of red and 2 shades of green; pattern paper by American Crafts; ribbon from Michaels.

Die Cuttin' Divas Sketch Challenge

Do you have your Christmas decor up?

We hung the lights outside yesterday. Took two trips to Home Depot, but got it done!

I am nearly finished inside, yipee. Everything done but my Snow Village.

So.... It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas :0)

Tuesday is here and time for a new challenge for you.

This week over at Die Cuttin' Divas the challenge is a sketch challenge; pick your favorite sketch from the year.

.




For my card I chose March's sketch.





I was inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest.

The tree and the deer are cut files from Silhouette Studio. For the snow I used hill dies by Lawn Fawn. I also used a stitched rectangle die by Simon Says Stamp and an Oval die from Spellbinders.

The sentiment is from a stamp set by Papertrey Ink.




Supplies used: card stock - white, kraft, glitter; stitched rectangle die by Simon Says Stamp; oval die by Spellbinders; Stitched hillside dies by Lawn Fawn; Cut files from Silhouette Studio; red and green Stickles, twine from Pick Your Plum.

Cut It Up Christmas Song Challenge


Are you thinking about getting your Christmas card list together?

Do you have cards ready to mail to friends and family?

We have a challenge this week to help you get started.

Our new challenge over at Cut It Up is create a project inspired by a Christmas song!
Don't forget a die cut!



Our sponsor for this weeks challenge is Heartfelt Creations

One of my favorite Christmas songs is O Holy Night!

This was the song that inspired my card.

I especially love the lyrics:

Fall on your knees
Oh hear the angel voices
Oh night divine
Oh night when Christ was born
Oh night divine
Oh night divine





I used A cut file from Silhouette Studio called BETHLEHEM SILHOUETTE LAYERED A2 CARD which you can purchase here.


I created the sentiment and cut it from white vinyl. I find when cutting sentiments vinyl works best, the cut is nicer and you don't have to apply glue to fine lettering.

I can't wait to see your creation so pop on over to the Cut It Up blog and join us in the fun!
