Remebering December with Kellie

Kellie here with you again to share another creation I made using the December Dreams kit, because you get so much within your kit, you really can just make and make and still have some left over and I LOVE that about these kits.  While the collection isn't available anymore as a whole kit, you can still get all the elements of the kit separately, except for one of the papers. 

DD_TFC_KELLIE_1Ok back on track.  I'm going to share with you a 6x4 layout I created x two for an album I'm determined to get finished this year.  It's a Remembering December album that is based on Christmas pasts and present.  i made a list to go off and have been working my way through.  This kit from The Fairytale Club couldn't had been a better fit.
DD_TFC_KELLIE_1What I love most about this kit is the colour theme.  Pink and red was actually the colour we went with on the tree for 2018 and I'm actually 80% sure the kit had a bit to do with my change from my traditional green, red and gold theme.  Tree looked amazing.  If you haven't already, subscribe! Each month the kits keep getting better and better and you won't want to miss them.
DD_TFC_KELLIE_1To create this layout I actually kept it rather simple.  What I love about the kits each month is there is always one or two 12x12 pattern papers that actually has cut outs, they are my FAV!  Like this Candy Cane - it works so well as a little flip card to then have the day number on the back and not taking it away from the photo or the pattern paper with the red scallops that I used to then add the journaling card, also from the cut out!  Before I go can we all agree the gingerbread man is the cutest!

Andrea's "December Dreams" Holiday Planner Set-up

Hello there everyone! It’s Andrea here, and today I want to share with you a fun planner set-up using the new "December Dreams" collection/kit!

I absolutely love setting up my planner for the holidays and since I start my holiday season in November (because I like to include my Thanksgiving plans in with my "holidays" stuff), I decided to go ahead and set up my planner using "December Dreams" now so that I could start getting things ready for my holiday-time!

I used the A5 decorative planner pages and punched them to go in my platinum Carpe Diem planner. For the front dashboard page, I used the Sugarplum Fairy planner page and added a clear transparency on top, and between the two sheets I sandwiched some of the matching sequins that come with the "Happily Ever After" kit version of "December Dreams." I did this so I could create a fun shaker page! I love shaker pages like this for my planner! They are easy to make, and all you have to do to close everything up is just stitch around the edges. I used a zig-zag stitch on my sewing machine and some red thread. I think this dashboard came out really cute!

And to finish things off on my dashboard, I just added a little paperclip with a little label from the cut-apart sheet and some ephemera pieces (like the gingerbread man, the word "merry," and a little peppermint) to it on the bottom right corner. This just adds a cute, extra jolly detail!

For the pockets in the front of my planner, I just used different 3x4 cards from the cut-apart sheet and placed them here and there to my liking, and then I also added in some of the smaller cut-apart pieces as well as some pretty die-cuts from the ephemera pack. I added a few paperclips to keep things in place how I wanted, and also to add some more dimension and texture.

For added depth, I placed a decorative pink pom-pom paperclip at the top (from our decorative paperclips pack) and I also created a few of my own decorative paperclips by attaching some of the adorable flair that comes in the collection to some simple gold paperclips.

And for some extra glitz and glam, I added in the big glitter-snowflake that comes in the variety pack to the front bottom pocket...and I added in the little silver snowflake charm to one of the top pockets as well...so cute!

There are more decorative pom-pom paperclips as well as some of the flair paperclips that I made added here and there in my planner, marking different pages. They are all along to top and you can see from the front how they look like pretty tabs...choose one to turn to particular and important pages in my planner.

And finally, I added to the rings the beautiful gold key to the four realms that comes in our new variety pack. It looks so gorgeous and special! I added a December 25 tag from one of our cut-apart sheets to it by just threading it through the pink tassel that comes with the key and I also created a little snowflake charm dangle using a gold paperclip and one of the clear crystal snowflake beads that comes in the variety pack too!

And for a last and lovely touch, I placed the gold key transparency sheet in the back of my planner...just because I think it looks so cool and magical!

Alright, I hope you like how I setup my planner for this holiday season and that I gave you some good tips, tricks and ideas for your planner set up (or maybe for a Christmas mini album, or a December Daily)! Hope you all are having a happy holiday-time!!! Hugs and remember to live your life as a fairytale (especially during this magical time of year)!

Lilly's Halloween Rosettes

Hey guys welcome back to the blog.. Are you guys ready for Halloween? I have really been enjoying creating Spooky mail. Today I’m sharing these super cute rosettes I made with the “Magical and Mischievous” kit.

I am totally obsessed because they combine a traditional look with that of “pasteloween,” which is super popular this year. I used the Tim Holtz rosette die. It’s my fave at the moment.

Also added some cute little spiders for a little something extra 🧡

You can either share these in happy mail or add them to projects or even make wands out of them.

Floral, "Tiki, I Love You" Paperclips with Violet

Hello! Violet here, and today I will be showing you how I used the "Tiki, I love you" kit to make these floral paperclips.

I love to use every bit of the kits and don’t want any of it to go to waste. I use my small desk die cut machine and scraps of paper, along with a floral die cut.

First, I cut out all the pedals and leaves, using all scrap pieces from the Tiki I love you kit. I grab some paperclips and the flair buttons.

I begin to layer them together and pick out the flair button that would go best with the flower.

I love how they look so much. I want a whole Tiki I love you bouquet!

Here are the floral paper clips in my planner. They are perfect for that special touch to any planner and just one more way to meep your spot in a fun and creative way. Thank you to everyone who took the time to stop by the blog today.

Ice Cream Cone Embellishments with Solange

Hey crafty friends!  Solange here with these cute ice cream cone embellishments using “The Wonderful World of Disney” kit, which I am so excited to be working with!

01-Solange-2014-07-14.jpg

These simple and cute ice cream cones are great to use as decor or to decorate a happy mail package!

02-Solange-2014-07-14.jpg

To create these cones, start out by cutting a piece of 6x6 paper and then roll it into a cone shape and secure it with hot glue. 

Cover a 3 inch foam ball with tissue paper with a color that matches your paper. You can find these foam balls in the floral section of your craft store.

Then glue your foam ball to the cone and add some cute trim around the edge to cover up the glue and to make your cone even cuter! Lastly, add sequins to the top to look like sprinkles and decorate using the ephemera and flair from the kit!

These are so quick and easy to make and will make your happy mail extra cute. See you next time, Solange.
