Hey everyone! It’s EK and I have a quick Christmas craft to share with you to help launch your holiday season. The holidays might be ‘the happiest time of the year’, but lets be real, they can also be the most stressful. So any time I can find something that is a true quick craft that is also super cute, I take full advantage of it.
Step One: Trim three pieces of paper from ModaScrap’s It’s Christmas Time paper pack to 6×12 inches. Die cut each piece of paper with the ModaScrap Triangle Box.
Step Two: Using the pre-scored lines the die left, gently fold the triangle box.
Step Three: Using some 6mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive, add tape to the edges of the box.
Step Four: Assemble the box.
Step Five: Using a piece of string, tape it inside the box so you can tie close the box.
These boxes are super simple to assemble, but a perfect way to give the holiday gift of cash, and plus they are the perfect vessel for little chocolate kisses.
Step Six: With the left over printed paper, die cut a rectangle and circle from the papers using the Dashing Rectangles and Dashing Circles die sets.
Step Seven: Trim up some left over Rust Soft Finish Cardstock and adhere is to the back of the circles to create little ornaments.
Step Eight: Adhere some string to the back of the ornament.
Step Nine: Adhere the die cut rectangle and circles to an A2 card frame made from some 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock.
Step Ten: Die cut a sentiment from some Forest Green Soft Finish Cardstock that has a sheet of Clear Double Sided Adhesive attached to the back from the Words 5- Winter Wishes die set. Attach the sentiment to the card frame.
Seriously, this box and card set could not be easier to create. They are super cute, but will save you time during your holiday season.
Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, I’m thrilled to be sharing with you my Let your Heart be Light Wall Hanging, which features the brand new collection of stamps and dies from Suzanne Cannon! To compliment the products from Suzanne Cannon, I’ve also used dies from Els van de Burgt Studio.
See my step-by-step below –– I hope you enjoy my tutorial!
Step One. Die cut all the pieces from the Flourish Holly die out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Candied Apple Distress Ink over the entire surface of the berries. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Peeled Paint Distress Ink over the entire surface of the flourished holly and single see through holly. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Mowed Lawn Distress Ink over the entire surface of the two holly leaves.
Step Two. From the Love, Joy & Peace Christmas Ornament, die cut the ornament out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Apply Emboss It Ink to the ornament and sprinkle Copper Scroll Modern Gilding Powder over the entire surface. Tap off the excess powder and emboss with a heat tool.
Step Three. Die cut the snowflake three times from the Flourished Christmas Minis 2 out of White Soft Finish Cardstock.
Step Four. Die cut the Flourished Frame out of White Soft Finish Cardstock.
Step Five. Choose two patterned papers that coordinate. From one of the patterned papers, die cut a 4″ Stitched Rectangle out of the paper. From the other patterned paper, die cut a 3 1/2″ Stitched Rectangle out of the paper. Distress the edges of both pieces. Ink the edges of both pieces using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step Six. Apply Candied Apple Distress Ink to the Let your Heart sentiment from the Let Your Heart be Light stamp set and stamp onto a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Die cut the sentiment out using the 2″ Stitched Circle.
Step Seven. To support the wall hanging, cut a piece that measures 4″ x 5 1/4″ out of thicker cardstock or a bingo card. Ink the edges of the piece using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step Eight. Adhere the 4″ stitched rectangle to the 4″ base. Adhere the flourished frame to the 4″ stitched rectangle. Adhere the 3 1/2″ stitched rectangle to the 4″ stitched rectangle.
Step Nine. Adhere the three snowflake randomly on the 3 1/2″ stitched rectangle.
Step Ten. Adhere the ornament to the stitched circle. Foam square the stitched circle to the middle of the 3 1/2″ stitched rectangle.
Step Twelve. Adhere the flourished holly together. Adhere the assembled flourished holly to the top of the ornament.
Step Thirteen. To finish the wall hanging, add a piece of twine to the back of the wall hanging.
Thank you for joining me today! I hope that I’ve inspired you to create your own version of my Let Your Heart be Light Wall Hanging.

Hello! Welcome! Samantha here, sharing my love of all things gold and glittery… I was so excited to get my hands on the new Craft Drops that I wanted to share a different way of using them. A perfect match with the latest release Cherry Blossom Branch die.
Step 1: Die cut the Blossom branches and adhere these to Kraft cardstock.
Step 2: Using different shades of pink and purple card – die cut the blossoms.
Step 3: Using a small brush or finger spread the Craft Drop paste on to the edges of the blossoms.
Step 4: Stamp the sentiment.
Step 5: (Optional) Add machine stitched details.
Step 6: Adhere all the Blossoms.
Step 7: Adhere Double Sided Adhesive to pink cardstock. Remove the release sheet to expose the adhesive layer and apply a generous amount of Silk Microfine Glitter (Light Gold). Brush off excess glitter and return it to the jar, then polish with a fingertip to bring out the maximum sparkle.
Step 8: Die cut the remaining blossom dies. Adhere these to the blossoms on your card front.
Step 9: Embellish the card with sequins and a twine bow. Adhere card front to an A6 card base.
I love how shimmery the gold sparkles off the blossoms – the photo doesn’t do it justice!
Hey Friends! It’s EK and I am wondering if you are you as excited as I am at how easy the new 2019 Christmas Release from Suzanne Cannon is going to make holiday card making this year. No seriously…it is going to make crafting so much easier this holiday season.
Today I am playing with the brand new A Way With Words Flourished Deer die and the new Merry Christmas 3 die to create this simple, yet fun holiday card.
Step One: Trim a piece of Bonnie Blue Soft Finish Cardstock to 12×6 inches and fold and score to create a 6×6 card frame.
Step Two: Using the A Way With Words Flourished Frames stencil, blend some ink onto the card frame to stencil in a frame. I used Candied Apple Distress Oxide.
Step Three: Using some 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock, die cut the new Flourished Deer die set. Color the image using your alcohol markers. I used my copics in E31, E33, and E37 for the deer’s body, R46 and R89 for his collar and nose, and Y23, Y26, and Y28 for his bell. I also used some N2 and N4 for the flourished areas.
Step Four: Using some Kids Choice Glue, adhere the nose, collar and bell onto the deer die cut. Adhere the die to the center of the card frame.
Step Five: Die cut the A Way With Words Merry Christmas 3 die from some Ladybug Red Soft Finish Cardstock. Adhere the Merry Christmas onto the card frame. I let them be off center for a fun twist.
Step Six: To add a little extra glam to the card I added a strip of silver peel off sticker from the Corners and Borders Straight peel off sticker sheet.
I hope you are as excited as I am about this new Christmas Release. Make sure you pop over and check out the whole new line.
Who else is excited for the upcoming holiday season? Sure, there’s the stress of cooking, and gift-giving… but that also means that there are more opportunities to craft! (And we couldn’t be more excited!)
With the help of our amazing Design Team, we’ve put together a list of Thanksgiving projects you’ll definitely want to make this year. Take a look below, and be sure to tell us in the comments which one you’ll be making!
What I’m thankful for: The aspect of my life that I am most thankful for is my family.
We are a really close family and we help each other through good and bad. We had a rough year with Jon’s health and every day I am thankful for him to be here and our boys that showed their loving and caring and strong demeanor that helped us both. I am thankful for the laughter we share, the lessons we have learned, the moments we have and the life we have built together.
Hi Friends! It’s EK popping in to create a little Halloween Fun. My family’s favorite Halloween movie is Hocus Pocus, and it occurred to me, that I could make my own bit of witchy fun using the Halloween Accessories and some creative coloring.
Step One: Die cut all the pieces you need from some 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock using both the Halloween Accessories die set and the Spider Web die set.
Step Two: Color up the accessories and assemble using Kids Choice Glue. I used a combination of cool grays for the cauldron (C5, C7, C9). I used E31, E34, and E37 for the bristles on the broom stick, while I used E81, E84, and E87 for the handle and spoon. I used G02, G05, and G09 for the bubbles and sludge.
Step Three: Color up the Witch’s Hats and assemble with Kid’s Choice Glue. I themed each of the hats after each of the three witches from Hocus Pocus. I colored a blonde hat (Y000, Y00, Y02 and Y06) to represent Sarah, a gray hat (W5, W7, W9) to represent Mary, and a reddish hat (E13, E07, E09, E19) to represent Winifred.
Step Four: Cut a piece of Bonnie Blue Soft Finish Cardstock to 12×6 inches and score and fold to make a 6×6 card base. Then spray and splatter the card frame with some Distress Oxide Spray. I used Mermaid Lagoon.
Step Five: Die cut out the movie title’s letters using the Blackboard Alphabet letters from some Spring Green Soft Finish Cardstock.
Step Six: Using a copic maker, give the title a little shading. I used both a YG13 and N2 copic.
Step Seven: Trim the spider web into half and adhere it to the corners of the card frame with some Kids Choice Glue.
Step Eight: Using both Kids Choice Glue and 6mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive, adhere the rest of the pieces of the card to the card frame.
I just love how this card came out and can’t wait to send it to my best friend who loves this move even more than I do. I think without stealing any intellectual rights, I was about to absolutely capture the feel of the movie.
Let me know in the comments below if I put a spell on you! Until then, Happy Crafting.
