Wishing you a Merry Christmas....

Wishing you a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy New Year, Festive Winter Solstice and a safe and Happy Holiday however you may celebrate.


We created these pieces specifically with you in mind. this is how we wanted to send you a personalized card from each of us designed with you in mind.

We open this up as the "Celebrations around the world" Dare! Bring celebrations and culture that mean something to you an link it up here to Win.

This is our first around the world Design Team Set! so Welcome our completed Group and make sure you extended a special note to Claudia and Shilpa who round out our Team.


Claudia is wishing all of  you a Merry Christmas with a fantastic Steam Punk Style card. I love the masculine accents and industrial look to this piece. 




Shilpa and I talked about what her cultural celebration is and found out that popular celebration  that happens for the Hindu culture is Diwali, 'The Festival of Lights' and it was held November. I love how she brought her cultural celebration of light with the candles and thoughtfully combined it with my Christian beliefs of Christmas. What a beautiful and creative piece for celebration.




Katelyn sends her "Season's Greetings" with this fabulous use of matte style layering and ink. You can never layer enough.




Diana sends wishes on this detailed Festive canvas. check out the amount of pine cones and greenery dies used here. So much detail and patience to be appreciated. 





Julia creates a wonderful memory box display and leaves now detail off these boxes. I love the charms decorating the tree and the vintage photo with Santa




Cathy hopes we all "Believe" in a little magic with this wintry selection of colour, charms, embossing powders and stamps. I just love it!




Karon adds so much dimension to this box book. I keep studying the wreath, its gorgeous! And Wait until you see what surprise she has inside!

    1. Hi Liz I tried to email directly but it bounced back. If you link up and say add any way. I can moderate it from the back end and get it up on the site. I'm new to the whole system and I linked directly to the post and not to the blog in general. Sorry for the confusion.

    1. Mwaa! Thanks. On occasion I love to challenge my self with simplicity. It's funny to be simple and have a wow factor takes way longer to create for me. Now that I have don't this one though it will make a re-appearance next year on a smaller scale so I can send a bunch! I'm recalling loving the pieces you post starting with Halloween. There's so much diversity in your creations I would love to watch you create and see what your process is. Maybe at tradeshow one of these years!
