Michelle's "December Dreams" Christmas Cards

Hey there, crafty friends and welcome to the most wonderful time of the year! I’m back with another craft, this time using the December Dreams kit from The Fairytale Club. I love the recent trend of using pastel colors for all things Christmas, and so this kit was just perfect for all my crafting needs! First up, I need to knock out Christmas cards.

I think sending cards at the holidays is such a fun way for me to be crafty, and also send someone a little mail to remind them that I’m thinking of them. The first item that caught my eye was the sparkly silver snowflake ornament, of course! Then as I dug into my kit more, I came across the die cuts where I found the tree cup, cupcake, and the sugar plum fairy! I used foam squares to add height and dimension to it, and the first one was finished.

For the next card, I knew that I wanted to use a lot of red. The pink and red polka dot paper made the perfect base! From there, I mounted the red bow paper on to a piece of craft paper, and used red tinsel around that! I love how sparkly the tinsel is. It also reminds me of vintage christmas decorations, which matched perfectly with the Nutcracker die cut piece! Finally, I finished it off with a tag.

Lastly, I knew that with all the sweets and candies in this kit, I just had to do one with that theme! The blue paper with candy designs was just perfect! This card was a bit easier since the pattern on the paper was so cute! Next I fussy cut the candy cane out of one of the pages and added a bit of shimmer with iridescent embossing powder! Then I finished it up with the gingerbread house and a couple die cuts, and there you have a sweet Christmas card!

I love this kit from The Fairytale Club so much, and I can’t wait to work with it some more! Hope you all have a happy and crafty holiday season!

Solange's "December Dreams" Happy Mail Tag Flips

Hello crafty friends! Today I am showing you guys a happy mail project using the “December Dreams Kit”.

Tag flips are one of my favorite ways to send happy mail because it’s easy, fun and super cute! All you’ll need to make your own is a metal ring and your “December Dreams” kit, that’s it !

If you do not have any metal rings on hand you can just tie the tags with some pretty trim which will work just as well.

To make this tag flip I used the dashboards that come in the kit and fussy cut some of my favorite images such as the ballerina, the house and the pretty blue Christmas tree. For the pieces that I fussy cut, I simply punched a whole and added it to my tag flip, simple and super cute.

Then I added some extra pieces that I cut into tag shapes and decorated them up using the beautiful ephemera pieces.

Super easy and cute project, can’t wait to see what you guys will make with your kit. Until next time, Solange.

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.

Well that’s all for now. Hope you guys have a great Halloween with friends and family! And always remember to stay safe 🎃

Making a Halloween card with Kellie!

Hi there everybody, it's Kellie here with you today and I'm here to share a card I created using the new Magical and Mischievous kit.  Now most of us down here in Australia don't celebrate Halloween, but that doesn't mean I don't absolutely love working with Halloween theme.  The pumpkins, witches, black cats, bats and so much more, what's not to love?

The pattern paper in this kit is so good.  Did you know that the 12 x 12 papers come with patterns on the bottom part of each sheet where the name of the sheet is located?  I always love cutting them off my The Fairytale Club kits and using them almost as a washi tape look.

Here is how I created this card.  First of all I started with a base of kraft cardstock, my favourite and then worked my way through the strips of off cuts, as I mentioned from the bottom of the 12 x 12 papers included within the Magical and Mischievous kit.  Once laying them out and moving them around and happy with the layout. I got out the CUTE to boot ephemera packets, because this month the kit comes with two.  One set is all silver foiled and spooking awesome.

After having fun with all the ephemera I popped on a flair button, BOO.  Then called it done and I really love the end result.

So don't throw out the off cuts along the bottom, cut them out and make a fun card with them!

Do you enjoy making Halloween cards?
