Here’s an assortment of cards that I made.  I needed to make 20 cards in one day for my mom so I chose to limit my choice in supplies and keep it clean and simple. 

All items are A Muse|Studio.

Homemade Gifts

I love receiving and making homemade gifts.  There’s something about the thought and time involved that makes it a little more special.  Not that I would be upset if a laptop or an iPad found it’s way under my tree! Winking smile 

Two lucky ladies soon will be smelling like apple pie and have baby soft skin after using the Vanilla Cinnamon Sugar Scrub that I made.  I found the recipe on a blog and for the life of me, can’t remember which one.  If you want to make a similar one, just use Google and you’ll find tons of recipes.



I started off by using the Word Art in Word to create my circular text and sized it to match my punch.  Then, I used the pink Marvy scallop circle punch for the base (‘Twas the Night Before Christmas paper), then the blue Marvy circle punch (kraft), and then I colored some paper flowers with Copics, found a cute buttercup buttons and used a little twine so my button wouldn’t be naked!  Easy peasy. 

Happy Holidays!  Hope you get to spend them with the ones you love.

I’m a bit obsessed with a couple things…mostly dies and felt.  I can’t seem to get enough!

I used ‘twas the night before Christmas for the base of the card, then I added a strip of cherry woodgrain that I used the large scallop border die on.  Next I added a strip of vanilla that I stamped warm wishes on.  I used the small mitten die and flipped the felt over on the second one to get a mirror image.  Added a couple small snowflakes from the snowflake trio dies, a little bling and baker’s twine and the card was done.

All items A Muse|Studio.

Oh, Christmas Tree

Here’s a pic of my tree so far.


I made the paper chain using cherry, ‘Twas the Night, and Sugar cardstock.  The mitten ornaments are felt with some ‘Twas the Night cardstock for the large snowflakes.

Still trying to decide what to make for the tree topper…

Have a wonderful day!
