Santa and Snowmen Utensil Holders

Hello all my crafty friend hope this post finds you all  just about finished with all those last minute things that must be done for Christmas.
We are having the my family over on the 21st for Christmas dinner. I have two sisters and they both have three kids that have kids of there own and then my kids and there kids, well you get the picture there will be about 36 of us so when I saw these cute little utensil holders I just knew I had to make them for my table.
This was a free Bap file that was offered from Creative Kuts. All you needed to do was send them a email by Tuesday and they would send it to you. I couldn't wait to get the email since I was dying to try them out.

I must say they were a breeze to make. I made all 36 in just one evening. We will still be having another Christmas dinner on the 25th but this will just be for the 12 of us. It will be the first Christmas that I have spent without my sisters in 61 years. I don't know how it is going to be but the family is just getting so big. Thanks for stopping bye and leaving me a bit of love.
Merry Christmas and the best to you all in the New Year!

Blinged Up Emo Jewelry Box

Hello all my crafty friends! 
Just a quick post to show off this darling Jewelry Box I made for my neighbors little girl. 
That is until I saw how cute it turned out! LOL!
 One of the Christmas gifts we picked up for my granddaughter Katie is a Bed in the Bag Set in Hot pink and Black, so when I saw this treasure box finished I just knew it had to be for her!
Sorry Bella!
(But I did go and pick you up a really nice gift from the Disney Store.)
I found this unfinished Jewelry box at the Dollar Store for three bucks and knew it would come in handy one day. I started by painting the box black, along with everything else that got in my way! 
I dug out my hot glue gun and my package of Glittering Scintillants and away I went. These gems do have a sticky back but I wanted to make sure they suck really good.
 This is a shot of the inside of the box (looks like maybe I should clean the mirror before I wrap it up)
I then decided on this cool looking animal print ribbon, using a button and a little skull and cross bones to cover where the ribbon joins.
The SVG was from a Company called Bear Hugs that is no longer in business. The little girls faced is a Peachy Kleen Stamp.
I will be entering this box in the following challenges:

Merry Christmas with A Bit Of Sparkle and Shine!

Hello all my Crafty Friends! 
Last month I was lucky enough to take a card class in Edmonton from no other then Emma Lou from Heartfelt Creations! This was one of the best classes I have taken and I just love the way my cards turned out.

This is just one of the cards I have made from Heartfelt Christmas Card Collection.
The Christmas Poinsettias were first stamped then cut with Heartfelt Christmas Poinsettias Pre cut die set. We then use glimmer mist to color the flowers blue. We added tiny beads in the middle of the flowers and used art glitter glue and extra fine glitter to finish the card.
T ruefully these picture do not do this card justice!
I will be entering this card over at My Craft Spot Challenge- Sparkle and Shine.
As always thanks for stopping bye. Have a great week and thanks for leaving me a little blog love!
