Santa Paws

paper crafts 2 Comments »

I was playing with a dog-themed Christmas stamp set a couple of days ago but I’m not quite ready to break out all the Christmas craft paraphernalia so I kept them clean and simple:


I used colouring pencils and OMS to colour the images – just because I wanted to sit in the TV room with DH and the dogs as I’ve spent a LOT of time in my craft room this week.

I also modified the middle dog to make it look more like a beagle (these are dachshunds).

It’s a pretty cute set – I’m sure you’ll be seeing more of it once I start Christmas paper crafts.

Enjoy what’s left of the weekend.  I’m back to work tomorrow after a week off.  Wish I had more to show for it but it was a nice break.

Santa Cam!

I saw a similar ornament on a friend’s Facebook feed a week or so ago and HAD to make them.

I had as much fun creating the box as I did making the ornament (with some help from my graphics whiz husband).


All the sides of the box have text/graphics (not showing it in the picture as I don’t want the graphics copied) including a disclaimer that elves – rather than Santa – may actually monitor the camera.

I thought it was a cute alternative to Elf on the Shelf.

Working on a small home decor project today (dog-themed, of course) and hope to have pictures of that for the blog soon.

Wedding Bells

Cards No Comments »

I’ve been working on the Beagle Paws fundraiser the last few weeks but did manage to squeeze a few other projects into my craft room hours.  Today I’m sharing a wedding card but the picture doesn’t do it justice (shiny gold cardstock plus a shaker window…hard to photograph – not that I try that hard).


The card may look simple but it used some tricky techniques – heat embossing (which I hate as much as glitter) and a shaker window.  The openings in the ampersand are shakers.

There is a white border around the card but it blends into my background.

Back tomorrow with a cute Christmas ornament.
