I Love New York with So Suzy Stamps!

Hi Everybody!
I have another fun project using the amazing stamps from So Suzy Stamps!  My brother recently went to New York, so I thought it would be great to help him scrapbook the trip.  I created some pocket style scrapping cards for him to just slip into an album.  Here are the details:

*So Suzy Stamps - New York Postmark
*Artbooking Cricut cartridge - card base
*Miss Kate Cuttables - I Heart New York SVG
*Love My Tapes - New York washi tape

*This postcard style stamp made the PERFECT background!!

*Here's a close up.

*I used the stamp to create a cool little mini border.

*Isn't that stamp a great accent on the suitcase??!!

*Here the stamp makes a New York moon :)

I hope you enjoyed my project!  Before I go,  did you know that So Suzy Stamps can be found on InstagramFacebookPinterest and Twitter.  Yes, you should join us there and find more inspirations and fun!!  And don't forget to check out the newest challenge!  You can see all the details for that HERE.  TFL, and hope everyone has a chance to craft today :)

Jaded Blossom Guest Designer {Hot Cocoa Kit}

Hi Everybody!
I'm ridiculously excited for my post today!!!!  I'm so happy to be a guest designer for Jaded Blossom today!

Of course we're all busy creating gifts for everybody, since Christmas is less than 2 weeks away (YIKES!!).  I saw this basic idea on Pinterest, and decided to give it a little twist using my favorite Jaded Blossom supplies.  Here are my project details:

*SVG Cutting Files - Triple Tube Holder
*Peachy Keen Stamps - PK-520 Winter Faces Assortment

*Timeless Twine - Christmas Twine
*Echo Park - patterned paper

*I added some panels to the tube holder to add my image and sentiment stamps.

*Eeek, aren't those marshmallows adorable??!!  I used the SVG stamp outlines from the Hot Cocoa stamp, and just used the marshmallow shape.
*I love that penguin!  He's so easy to color.  I added some silver Stickles to the snowflake on his mug :)

*The tubes were also embellished with the candies stamps on the top, and as charms.

*I added more candy stamps on the sides.

*I decided to leave the back panel blank to write a note, or just a To and From.

Thanks so much for checking out my project today!  Make sure to come back and check out the JB blog everyday this month and enter to win a prize!!  TFL, and hope everyone has a chance to craft today :)

Omgosh, she is almost too adorable!!

And now, onto my project for today!  Here are the details:

From Miss Kate Cuttables I used:

I also used these supplies:

*Michaels - charger plate
*printable vinyl

*I totally fell in love with this Santa when I saw him!  I thought his big, friendly face would be perfect for home decor.

*The berry branches were just the right length to slightly curve around the plate.

*I chose the word believe, because I think we should always believe in the spirit of Santa :D

I hope you enjoyed my project!  I'd love to see some of you try try this and share it on the Miss Kate Cuttables Facebook page HERE, or on my Facebook page HERE.  TFL, and hope everyone has a chance to craft today :)
