Recycling at Christmas

Hi, thanks for your visit today!

This is an easy project, that I made using only a clean tin and some leftovers...






You will need an empty tin.





Line the tin with black cardstock






Using an oak leave paper punch, cut many leaves in various shades of green cardstock. Color them with reddish tones, to make them look natural. Put on top a golden ribbon, add a bow and a rhinestone. Add some leftover Christmas decorations.




Put inside the can a battery’ candle and fill with green moss.






As I said, very simple! I hope it will inspire you to recycle your leftovers. The more we recycle, we will leave a cleaner world to our children:)

Max' Christmas!

Thank you for your visit today!
Today I want to show you my very first Christmas card. Some people already know my dog Max, a charming retriever, one of my favorite drawings . Well, here's Max, in a forest, giving gifts to his friends. I used the Sketch of Friday Sketchers, which seemed to me very useful, because it allows many combination.

Thanksgiving Turkey

Hi, thanks for your visit today!



I had a great time making this card! It was fun! I can imagine that if turkeys could speak, would surely be on its knees like the one in my drawing , trying to avoid its fate in the next weekend:) As always, I used one of my drawings. I know the turkeys are a different color, but I thought I had to paint this one with bright colors and much glitter in its feathers.

My first 2010 Christmas project, easy, easy...

This project is so easy that I will decorate many candles this year! I used candles with batteries, in order to place them anywhere. I used vellum and holographic cardstock. I cut the vellum in different sizes, rolled up and glued on the ends. I cut the cardstock with different punch papers and my Cuttlebug dies, then I added them to the rolled vellum using glue dots and that's it, ready! The easiest Christmas project of all my life!
Note: I am very responsible when using batteries. I always deposit them in appropriate containers for recycling:)
Thanks for your visit today!

Hi again!

I'm back! I spent some vacation time, I also spent some time learning other crafts (which I will show later) and, bad luck, I was sick a few days:( In short, I did not have a minute to be near to my blog for a long time. However, making cards is in my DNA, I cannot leave them! So here I am, eager to start anew.

Today I made a card with the Mojo Monday sketch Contest. I think it is the first time I did not use a drawing. I thought the sketch was special to write a nice greeting. The gold ribbon and the shining butterfly highlighted the Christmas colors.

Card supplies:
Bazzill green cardstock, golden cardstock, miscellaneous designer paper, Cuttlebug Christmas embossing folder, EK Success punch paper, Spellbinders Shapeabilities Butterflies Two, Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels Four, glitter paint, special golden ribbon, gold silk thread and my sewing machine.

Thanks for your visit today!
