This project starts with a Merry Christmas or Season’s Greetings die from Suzanne Cannon’s A Way With Words collection, a purchased Christmas stocking and pre-made wire-beaded leaves. All of the elements are secured to the velvet cuff with gem glue, ideal for adhering die cut Shimmer Sheetz to fabric.
Hi Crafty Friends,
It’s Frances Byrne here today with another Christmas card tutorial to share with you. I have been having fun this year creating a lot of snowy Christmas scenes using Distress Oxide inks to create my skies. Christmas where I live down here in Australia is in summer, so we enjoy a hot Christmas Day with cold lunches and probably swimming in a pool. As we don’t experience snow, it is fun to create snowy scenes on paper instead.
Hello Crafty Friends.
It is that time of year when many of us are celebrating life and being thankful. In the northern hemisphere we are thankful for our harvest, the beautiful fall foliage, and perhaps the kids being back at school. 🙂 There are many reasons to be thankful- especially for acts of kindness. The gorgeous calligraphy stamp from the A Way With Words collection, A Bit of Fragrance, is perfect for your next thank you card and is the focal point of the thank card I am sharing today.
Babies – ah, I love them! And I love celebrating the arrival of a new bundle of hope, possibility and dreams. Now that I am out of the baby stage myself, I would actually have time to put together a cute little shower for a mom-to-be. There are so many designs you could make for a baby shower with the A Way With Words die sets. I went with the onesies because I just love those – especially since I love squeezing those baby thunder thighs! This set showcases an example of a card for the mom-to-be, the invitations and then also a little gift box. Read on how you can quickly put together a set yourself.
The A Way With Words die sets are perfect for creating elegant holiday cards. This is Selma Stevenson today and I designed a card using Suzanne Cannon’s Warm Thoughts and Flourish Candle die sets. For additional embellishment, Garden Notes die sets were used.
Hi there! It’s Suzanne here today with another way to use the Gable Box! Are you making individual packages for some of your special goblins? Here’s a fun way to do it!
Hi, It’s Kelly Booth here today with a fun project for treats at Christmas for friends and family. I need to start early on projects as Christmas seems to creep up really fast…
Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my Merry Christmas Card. The inspiration came from ModaScrap’s Christmas Flower die. With that element of my card figured out, I added more with dies from ModaScrap, Els van de Burgt Studio, A Way With Words, and Susan’s Garden Notes to finish it off. I hope that you enjoy my tutorial!

I enjoy making flat ornaments to mail as an alternative to greeting cards. They can go straight to the tree or hang in a window or on a doorknob. And now that it’s become something of a tradition for me, friends have come to expect them!
Suzanne Cannon’s new A Way With Words release includes a fabulous flourished candle die set that has separate pieces for a dimensional flame and dripping wax. The candle can stand alone on an ornament, but I thought the word ‘Rejoice’ added a nice bit of extra sparkle. And the lettering provides visual balance when tucked just beneath the candle – The letter ‘R’ almost touching the flourishes, but not quite.
Hello friends – it’s Sandy back with you to share a fast and easy project that will add fun and sparkle to your holidays. Yes, the holiday season will soon be upon us, whether we are ready or not. We like to entertain and especially during the holidays. I’ve made these fun little luminaries to decorate my dinner table and to use as place markers. They are blank at the moment but as soon as my guest list is final I will add names using a label maker or typing and printing them from my computer. The battery-operated candles last for a few hours so turn them on just before your guests arrive and they will last through dinner.
