Crafty Hazelnut’s Christmas Challenge 459 – include a stocking

A new challenge every Saturday

This week at Crafty Hazelnut’s Christmas Challenge we are looking for stocking. I think of tockings and automatically think of the stocking were hung by the fire with care…. I used my Cricut and a lovely Fireplace 3D box card by My Scrap Chick. I cut it out using various cardstock from my stash and embossed the fireplace with a brick-patterned embossing folder.

This week’s challenge at Crafty Hazelnut’s Christmas Challenge is to make a card for someone special. I have always loved Terriers. The Scottie Dog to me is the most recognized terrier silhouette. I own a little Westie. In my lifetime, I have owned an Airdale, Irish, 3 Yorkies, and now a Westie.

Simply Create Too – Challenge #153 – Sept. 6 to Sept. 27 – AG/No Twist

1 Simply Create 2 DTThis month the Simply Create Too Challenge #153 is to make a card/project with no twists! I needed to make an extra special Happy 40th Birthday card. I  found a great SVG file called 30 Candles from 3DCuts. The SVG template can be made to any size card. I added an additional 40 candles. I made the card using my Cricut machine and thought it would be a fairly simple and fast card to make, but in the end, there were over 245 pieces!

Crafty Hazelnut’s Christmas Challenge 453 – something beginning with the letter S

A new challenge every Saturday

This week at Crafty Hazelnut’s Christmas Challenge we are looking for a project theme with something beginning with the letter S. I decided to make a card with a (S)nowman on it. I used a SVG file from Jamie and Jenn Designs called Snowman Window Lever Card.

I added texture to the snowman with an embossing folder. The sticker came with those address labels various charities fundraise with. They are perfect to use as sentiments on cards. Making this card with my Cricut was Easy Peasy.

I look forward to seeing your entries.
