It’s in the Bag!

Everybody needs a quick option for wrapping Christmas goodies and gifts this time of year, so you’ll want to stock up on the Gusseted Cellophane Bags (item 142001). Just pop a treat or gift into the bag and simply add a ribbon and tag to dress it up. These food-safe 6″ x 17″ bags come in packs of 25.

How will you fill your bag?

Side Step Technique Class

I haven’t done a Side Step Card in a very long time and thought it was time to teach this technique again. I had 9 wonderful ladies show up for my class this morning. They all made 3 cards each, Halloween, Fall & Christmas, I just wanted to show how versatile this card type can be. Basically you need to let your imagination run wild with this one and you can make some pretty awesome cards! Here are the cards they made.


Now up close and personal!




Get inventive and create your own side step card. If you want the details on how to make this just leave me a comment below. Don’t forget to send me your creations!

Witch Hat, Oh What Fun!

I made the Witch Hat from the Witching Décor Project Kit and I have to say it was a lot of fun to make! It took my about an hour and 45 minutes and it looks just as good as the catalog version, what do you think?
Watch the video below to learn how to put it together.
