12 Months of Christmas Link Up Challenge #7 midway post Ornaments 07/15/2015


The 12 Months of Christmas is having a DT call. If you are interested  click on the link below.

Hello, Today is the midway post for the July ornaments challenge at The 12 Months of Christmas Challenge. I am using the digi "Christmas Ornaments" by Robyn's Fetish. Our sponsor this month is Robyn's Fetish. The winner gets 3 digital stamps of their choice from the Robyn's Fetish Store. You can find the Robyn's Fetish Challenge blog here  http://robynsfetishchallengeblog.blogspot.ca/. You can find the Robyn's Fetish Store here http://robynsfetish.com/shop

I am using Decosse's Dynamite Doodles digital Christmas papers on my cards. The ornaments are paper pieced using the "It's Ornamental" digital paper set.  The deep red and deep green are from the "Grungy Christmas" set and the Ornament and pine frame papers are from the "12 Months of Christmas" paper set. The sentiments I used are by Lisa Decosse too called "Happy Holidays " and "Holiday Hoopla."  You can can find these sets here http://decossesdynamitedoodles.blogspot.com/p/blog-page_26.html


I used the background of the Blue Ball Ornament paper to paper piece the ornaments. I then added Glossy Accents to the heart and star. Once they were dry I added iridescent glitter glue to the ornaments. Once dry I glued them onto the white card stock with the printed image on it. I then outlined the hooks in Silver Stardust Gelly Roll Pen as well as the sentiment. 

The die cuts were made using Spellbinders Labels Eight for the image and Darice called Nesting Rectangles. I used Silver Metallic Gelly Roll Pen for the stitching around the image die cut.

The bows were made using ribbon from The Great American Ribbon Company a local store here. 

The lace is by Prima. The ric rac is from Michaels. 

The card is 5 1/2" x 5".



I paper pieced the ornaments using the background paper of the Silver Ball paper and the ribbon of it for the heart. The star and ornament top are from the background of the Gold Ball paper. I oulined the ornaments and colored in the high light area of the left ornament with a Clear Stardust Gelly Roll Pen.

I added Iridescent Glitter Glue to the heart and star.

The left ornament is popped up with foam squares.

The die cut was cut out using a Darice die called Nesting Rectangles. I inked the die cut with a red chalk ink pad by Studio g. The sentiment is popped up.

I drew in the hooks trying to keep them as close as possible as the orginal ones of the image using a Silver Stardust Gelly Roll Pen.

I used the Clear Stardust Gelly Roll Pen to draw a flourish all around the card on the green card stock.

The card is 5 5/8" x 5 5/8".

Digis for Debbie Fundraiser Blog Hop 7/14/2015


You can find the Fresh Brewed Designs Challenge Blog here  http://freshbreweddesigns.blogspot.com/2015/07/digis-for-debbie-fundraiser-blog-hop.html.

Good morning and welcome to the Digis for Debbie Fundraiser Blog Hop.  Recently, we learned that Mrs. Debbie Lynch, the beautiful and loving mother of Heather Dennis, owner of Fresh Brewed Designs, was diagnosed with a rare form of uterine cancer.  As most of you may know, cancer related medical costs can be quite expensive, and Mrs. Debbie currently has no medical insurance, which makes the cost significantly higher.  Therefore, we have decided to help raise enough money to cover these medical expenses, as well as aftercare expenses, by creating a digi shop.  All the proceeds of the Digis for Debbie Fundraiser Shop and the Fresh Brewed Designs Store will go directly to Mrs. Debbie to fund her lifesaving surgery and the aftercare necessary to bring her back to wellness.  Furthermore, Heather has created a Give Forward account to assist her mother.  If you would like to help, please stop by the Digis for Debbie Fundraiser Shop, the Fresh Brewed Designs Store, and/or the Give Forward Account.  For those of you who are not able to contribute monetarily, we would love for you to add Mrs. Debbie to your prayer list.  If there is one thing we know, prayers can work miracles that money cannot and healing and wellness is what we are praying to receive. 
The hop launches today, Tuesday, July 14th on the Fresh Brewed Designs Challenge Blog, and will run until Tuesday, July 28th @ 11:59 PM Eastern Time.  All participants can be found in the linkies section of *this post on the Fresh Brewed Designs Challenge Blog, and we would love to have you join us!  We do ask that you use a digi from the Digis for Debbie Fundraiser Shop or the Fresh Brewed Designs Store, and the theme is Anything Goes, and you can enter as often as you would like.  Two prize packages will be awarded, one prize for a digi purchaser and one prize for a blog hop participant.  Winners will be chosen on Saturday, August 1st.  The prizes will consist of stamps, papers, ribbon, embellishments, etc.; plus, some random prizes will be offered by some generous blog hop participants along the hop.
Thank you for dropping by and for helping us with our fundraising efforts; and again, we ask that you keep Mrs. Debbie in your prayers.  Have a wonderful Tuesday, crafty friends!  We look forward to admiring your creations! :)

12 Months of Christmas Link Up Challenge # 6 Home for the Holidays/Vintage Christmas Midway Post 6/15/2015


Hello, Today at 12 Months of Christmas our challenge is Home for the Holidays/Vintage Christmas. Lunagirl is our sponsor this month. I am using "Victorian Christmas Collage" by Lunagirl. This sheet of Victorian images has  17 images on it. You can find this set here Victorian Christmas Collage. You can find the Lunagirl store here http://lunagirl.com/.
  • Do you remember Christmas time when you were little?  All of us come from different eras and hopefully we all have some fond memories of Christmases past.  The look of ornaments, decorations, wrapping paper and cards have definitely undergone changes in their appearances throughout the years.  Have you stayed traditional to your roots or have you moved on with the times?  Regardless of your style, this month we want to see a card that reflects the Christmases of old.

    In order to have a chance to win the prize from our wonderful guest sponsor this month, make sure that your card has a vintage theme.  So, break out those classic images, grungy papers and anything else that will give your card a vintage look.  If you do follow the optional theme, be sure to add FT after your name so that we include you in the draw for the prize.

    Remember, you don't need to follow the theme to link up your cards and earn a free paper each month, and have your name thrown into the year end draw for some extra digital goodies.  You only need to follow the theme if you want a chance to win this month's sponsored prize of a $15.00 gift card from Lunagirl. 


The pearls are by Want 2 scrap. They are a deep green.

The ivory lace is by Prima.



The burgundy pearls are by Bo Bunny.

The borders were made using a Martha Stewart Border punch.



The flowers and leaves are mulberry paper and are by Wild Orchid Crafts. The 2 tone roses are ivory. I inked them with a rose ink pad by Studio g.
