Reindeer Noses


There was a contest at Regionals and the rules were simple. We had to make something using the awesome Kraft Die-Cut Cards. I decided to make a little treat box.

I scored the card at 1/2” on either side of the fold and folded it up into this little bag. I covered the front with patterned paper, punched a scallop circle and added a reindeer sticker and the title. Finally, I added some bling buttons to the top and filled it with a bag of Whoppers candy and Cherry Sours.

It didn’t win, but I still think it is cute. Plus, I was up against some very talented women and the ones that did win were certainly very deserving!

Congratulations to Vesna, Joanne and Cheryl!

Supplies Used: (All CTMH)

Paper: Believe Level 2, 6”x6” Kraft Die-Cut cards

Stamps: Tiny Typewriter

Embellishments: Believe My Stickease, Bling Buttons  

Other: Scallop Circle Punch, Whoppers candy, Cherry Sours candy

Vancouver Regionals

This past weekend, I had the opportunity to attend the Close To My Heart Regional celebration in Vancouver, BC. It was one of the most amazing experiences of my life. P9240566

The people from CTMH that were there were wonderful and made us feel very special as consultants. We had some great business classes as well as some fabulous creative sessions.

Coming Back!

I have been a bad blogger. It has been so long since I posted anything. I don't really have a good excuse, except that, with my full-time job, I have taken a step back from my crafting business to spend more time with my children. 

 We have had a great summer together as a family and have built so many happy memories (that will need to be scrapbooked).

I am hoping to spend more time in the craft room and would like to start posting on my blog again. I cannot promise a new post every day, but I will post as often as I can.

I have the opportuinty to travel to Vancouver to attend Close to My Heart's Regional Celebration. I will be flying there on Thursday and will hopefully be able to post about my experiences there. I will be teaching a class, which I am both really excited and really nervous about.

Talk to you soon!
