Welcome November! - GDP214


Welcome to November!

I feel like my social media feed went Christmas crazy come November 1st ... have you had the same experience? I don't recall it being like this in past years. Oddly though, it appears that I am easily influenced! I am finding myself wanting to decorate and watch Christmas movies! 

As a blogger and paper craft instructor, Christmas crafting starts early ... confession, I actually started Christmas crafting back in September! I have yet to crank the Christmas Carols or bust out the Christmas tree but I did watch two Christmas movies last weekend when I was designing some holiday projects. With all of this social media influence I am sure my tree will be up soon though!

Are you ready for some Paper Crafting social media influence?




My Christmas card layout was inspired by this weeks Global Design Project Challenge #GDP214.

Each week the GDP issues a challenge to our followers from around the globe. If you are crafting, join the fun and share your creations with us - CLICK HERE! For more inspiration, click here see what the rest of the Global Design Project Design Team is creating!


Drop a comment below and let me know when you start you start to get into the Christmas spirit! When do you start to decorate and watch holiday movies? When do you start making Christmas cards?

Thank-you for visiting! Have a creative day!

Holiday Mixer - Fancy Friday Blog Hop


Hello Fancy Friends!

Welcome to the October Fancy Friday blog hop! Today we are sharing Holiday Mixer projects, showcasing Stampin' Up!© products from the 2019 Holiday Catalogue, mixed with products from the 2019-2020 Annual Catalogue.


I have paired the Brightly Gleaming Suite with the Merry Christmas to All Stamp Set.
A great pairing, eh?! I love this color combo for Christmas, a fresh change from the traditional Red and Green! But I have to say - photographing Night of Navy is hard!!





Next on the hop is my friend Cindy Schuster!

Thank-you for joining our hop! Have a creative day!
