My Hubby collects Nutcrackers so I knew that's what I wanted to make. The DCWV Merry Memories Stack was PERFECT! I love that is had masculine patterns.  The Nutcracker is from JGW Nutcracker Patrol. I will for sure be doing more from that collection!

love me a turkey

Good Evening! I just love this little turkey! He is from KaDoodle Bug Designs he is DS CK Pumpkin Turkey. I used my Copic to color him up. 

And the following from Jaded Blossom:
Let's Talk Turkey, Fall Dies, Spring Dies, Mini Tag Dies 2,  Scallop Caddy Die, and Candy Charms and Banner Dies.

So here is a tutorial of how I made the box. Please be kind as this is the first tutorial I have done.

So step 1 is you want to cut 4 of them out.

step 2 you glue them side by side like you see above these will be your front and back
step 3 then you glue the very end tabs together like you see below these are your sides.

finally you should end up with it looking like this.

Thank you!

Christmas Cards preview

Hello, today is my day over on the SVG Attic Blog and I am so excited to share with you all a preview of an upcoming collection.  Love these Christmas cards, the aspect of nature in all of them is what draws me to them!
Hope you enjoy each one of them as much as I do! 
***Edited- this collection is called JGW Pinecones and Holly Card Kit***

This first one is of course a christmas wreath, I added glossy accents to the berries to make them pop.

I popped the heart on this on and put it on a wobble for something different.

here it is in action.

This one might be my fav if I had to choose. Although I do love them all! I just love the intricate of all the pieces. 

Yes I had fun with my twine on this one. 

Wanted to add a bit of different colors for this one.

My hubby loves pine cones. I did use my eBrush with my copic for the shading on this one. So so happy with the results.

Here is a list of what else was used for these cards.

Thank you so much for stopping by! Hope you have a great day!

I also used my newest fav. Trendy Twine Spiced Pumpkin

To put this all together here is a list of what else I used.
