Christmas Trees and Snowmen Decor

Hi everyone! I’m back today with a quick and easy home decor project I created for the Comfort and Joy Event hosted by Eileen Hull!

I used the tree diecuts from the Vintage Truck Box Diecut and the label from the Full Size Journal Diecut to create this project. Lets get started!

The base of this project is an empty can of wax. I did give the inside a good clean before tapping the lid on tightly before decorating.

I dug into my Christmas papers, selected and covered the can sides and the top with a festive patterned cardstock. I also adhered lace around the top and bottom and added a snowflake ornament ( I’ve used these snowflakes in several of my projects) to the top of the can.

I cut several of the large and small tree diecuts from the Vintage Truck Box Diecut.

The large tree I cut the “trunk” off and folded all the trees in half and adhered to a small wooden dowel. The smaller tree I did the same steps except I glued the tree dies back to back.

I adhered the trees along with two snowman stickers from my stash and Baubles to the top of the can. I also applied Stickles onto the trees and baubles and added the label diecut, with Foam Pop Dots to the back, from the Full Size Journal Diecut to the front of the can and a Happy Holidays sticker to finish.

Snow and Cocoa Tray and Cards

Hi everyone! I’m back today with a project I designed using the bookbinding thinlit from Eileen Hull’s Bookbinding and Label Thinlits.

I recycled a card box as a base for the tray. The long sides of the tray I cut at an angle with a Crafter’s Knife and the front I cut down. I reinforced the corners of the box with patterned cardstock. I started “wrapping” the first slanted side of the box with patterned cardstock and adhered the edges down. Side note…I used Snow and Cocoa Paper Pad and the embellishments that coordinates with this line.

I wrapped and adhered patterned cardstock on the front and back of the box.

I cut out five of the bookbinding thinlits and put together according to the directions. Next I glued each end of the “hinges” together.

I reinforced the back by added another piece of cardstock.

I applied glue to the back of the hinges and placed inside the tray and added a decorative flat back pearl to the front of the tray.

The “hinges” in the tray will hold the cards/tags in place as I fill it up. I created a couple of cards and will continue to add until I fill up the tray. I used embellishments, buttons, sequins and thread to decorate these cards.

This card I embossed a piece of Aqua Cardstock with the Sweater Embossing Folder and added Snow and Cocoa embellishments.

I cut a piece of patterned cardstock, folded in half, glued the side together to create a pocket which I placed over the hinge. As I said earlier I will be adding cards and tags as the month goes on so be sure to come back to see what else I’ve added to the tray.

Mittens and Sweater Card

Hi everyone! I want to share a quick card I created using the Sweater Embossing Folder, the snowflake from the Wreath and Snowflake Thinlits and the mitten from the Mitten Box Diecut. Let’s get started!

I cut and folded a piece of patterned cardstock to create a 4 1/2″x6 1/2″ card base. Next I embossed a piece of Aqua Blue Cardstock with the Sweater Embossing Folder, lightly inked over the raised areas with a Blue Chalk Ink and adhered two strips of patterned cardstock to the embossed cardstock. I added Foam Pop Dots to the embossed cardstock and placed onto the card base.

I ran the Mitten Diecut through the Diecut Machine a couple of times, once for patterned and once for plain cardstocks. I inked the edges of the mitten with a blue chalk ink and glued together.

I cut out a snowflake from the Wreath and Snowflake Thinlits and glued to the mitten along with a vintage button. I placed foam pop dots to the back of the mitten before placing on the card base.

I adhered a cut a part that I found in my stash off center of the mitten, added flat back pearls to the snowflake and several loops of thread to the button and called the card finished!

Sparkles Sparkly Snowflake Slimline Card

Hi everyone! I’m back this month with another card using my Sparkles Snowman Happy Holidays Clear Stamp Set! I would have had this blog post out sooner but came down with a nasty cold that took forever to get over and a wedding album to finish while not feeling my best. UGH! But anyway, I’m back and getting better each day.

I started by placing the snowman face stamp onto the MISTI Stamping Tool, inking with Black Ink (waterproof) and stamping an assortment of images onto Cardstock and Watercolor Paper so I could work on projects as I found time. Also some of the images didn’t stamp clean but, no problem, I made them work for each project I created (more projects to come later). A side note I forgot to use the magnet to hold the paper down and that is how I didn’t get a clear image…totally my fault.

This image was one that it didn’t stamp clean so I decided to to use pastels to add “smudges” around the eyes, nose and mouth so the image wasn’t a complete loss. I hate wasting the watercolor and cardstock! I filled in eyes, nose and mouth with chalk pastels and Colored Pencils.

I used the Journal Diecut to cut the card base for a regular slimline card. I folded a piece of cardstock in half and used Washi tape to hold in place on the diecut. I made sure the card was 3 1/2″ across when I placed on the diecut before running through the Diecut Machine. A regular slimline card measures 3 1/2″x 8 1/2″ and will fit into a #10 size envelope. I added a snowflake patterned piece of cardstock, a stripe of patterned cardstock to the card base, matted the snowman image, added Foam Pop Dots to the back before adding to one end of the base.

I stamped the sentiment and matted to a piece of cardstock before gluing both, sentiment and snowflake ornament, to the base. I have a box of these snowflake ornaments that I got for dirt cheap so I use them regularly in various projects. All I do is cut off the “hanger” if I’m going to use it in a project like this.

I forgot to add that I applied glitter glue to the eyes of the snowman and there you have it! Also if you aren’t following Blank Page Muse on their social medias you can find them on:

Snowflake Gift Card Holder

Hi everyone! I’m back today a quick gift card holder project for Christmas! If you are into all things glitter but don’t like the mess. I am going to show you how to use embossing powder over a piece of cardstock to give it that sparkly effect.


I started by punching a snowflake from mint green cardstock. I covered the snowflake completely with Clear Top Boss Embossing Stamp Pad and applied Opalescent  Embossing Powder to the snowflake and set with the Heat Tool.



I inked a snowflake stamp from the Home for Christmas Clear Stamps with Wicked Black Ink and stamp onto a piece of White Cardstock. I punched the snowflake out with a Circle Punch and applied adhesive to the center of the stamped snowflake and sprinkled Winter Frost Glitter onto the image and gently shook off the excess. 


I cut from patterned cardstock the following cardstock strips: 1 7/8″x2 1/2″, 1/2″x2 1/2″ and 1/8″x2 1/2″  and adhered all cardstock strips to the front of the Mini Bag.

I adhered the snowflake circle to the center of the larger snowflake, added sequins, a flat back pearl to the center of the snowflake and glued the larger snowflake to the bag. I folded the flap over and add a mini clothes pin to the top of the bag. This will keep the gift card safely in place until  it is ready to be given as a gift. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

    Thanks for stopping by, hope your Monday is wonderful and enjoy creating!

    Snowflake Egg Carton

    Hi there! How was  everyone’s Christmas? I had a nice time. My son and daughter in law came in and we exchanged presents on Christmas Eve. Then on Christmas Day we went to my mother in law’s at 10:00AM did the gift exchange with her and my step daughters and their husbands and then at 12:30 ran to my parents to do the same thing again plus we had dinner. As I said it was nice but after two days of nonstop “partying” I was ready to get back into my normal routine and get back to crafting.                
    Well, anyway, I wanted to share the second half of a project for a swap I was in. The first half of the swap I altered a paper bag and you can find that post HERE.

    I painted a six count egg carton that I had purchased at Hobby Lobby in Folk Art Faded Jade acrylic paint and sealed with Antique Mod Podge. I cut a snowflake patterned cardstock from the Prima Sweet Peppermint collection which I adhered to the top of the lid. Next I cut a Snowflake Rosette from Merry & Bright Collection and put together according to the direction. I added a gold circle, a small snowflake ornament, sequin and Dew Drop to the center of the snowflake diecut. 

    I adhered seam binding and ribbon above the “clasp” to dress it up.

     The inside I cut a piece of patterned cardstock to fit the inside of the lid and the fun part…filling it with GOODIES!!!

    I added candy, handmade planner clips, bits and pieces of ribbons, buttons, etc. that my swap partner Lisa can eat while crafting. 😄

    I also added a Santa pen that I found at the Target Dollar Spot to the package. Isn’t it so adorable? As always if you have questions about this project please let me know.
    Well, there you have it…my last post of 2016. For the 2017 year I have written down some goals of what I want to accomplish (fingers crossed) 😊. This past year was a very crazy, sad, topsy turvy year to say the least and my crafting mojo went on vacation. So here’s to a better and more creative 2017!  

    Thanks for stopping by, hope your Friday is awesome and enjoy creating!

    Noel Card

    Hi everyone! I am back with another quick Christmas card I created using the Lost and Found Christmas Collection from My Mind’s Eye. The card base is 3″x6″ and I cut a Scalloped Rectangle (from Spellbinders) out of gold glittered cardstock .

    I adhered a strip of patterned cardstock, along with a banner and a Noel sentiment I cut out from the collection.

    The miniature snowflake is actually an ornament that I cut the hanger off of it before adding to the banner. I finished it off with a sequin and a mini flatback pearl.
    If you have any questions about this card or products I used please let me know.

    Thanks for stopping by, hope your day is awesome and enjoy creating!

    Snowflake Noel Card

    Hi everyone! I am back with another quick Christmas card. Like the last card I shared this past Monday I used the 6″x6″ Lost and Found Christmas Pad from My Mind’s Eye. I folded a piece of cardstock from the pad to create a 3″x6″ base for my card.

    I cut a diecut from the Scalloped Rectangle from Spellbinders, painted a wooden snowflake and once dry adhered all to the front of the card.

    I finished off the card with sequins and tiny flat back pearls. Very quick and easy! If you have any questions about this card please let me know.

    Thanks for stopping by, hope your Friday is wonderful and enjoy creating!

    To Find the Perfect Tree Train Case

    Hi everyone! I am here to share my Eileen Hull’s Inspiration Team’s  Art with Heart project for this month using the bottom half of the Train Case diecut.

    I cut the bottom from mat board and covered it with Graphic 45’s cardstock from the Gilded Lily collection. I know it isn’t really Christmasy but I wanted more of a wintery/snowman feel for my project since my house is decorated more in those colors. Plus I thought the little girl with the tree was prefect because I can keep this out and enjoy it in the winter months ahead.

    The snowman I made from a 1″ and 1 1/2″ SmoothFoam balls. I gessoed and painted with an off white paint and once dry I put together and applied Antique Mod Podge and covered with glitter. I had baked “carrot noses” from Sculpey clay according to directions on the package. I adhered the nose and two dew drops to the snowman and added more glitter to the face. The “arms” are cut from wire which I rolled to make hands and then inserted on either side of the body and then added a little glue to secure.

    I filled the inside of the case with tissue paper, adhered the bottle brush trees to that and the snow girl image I printed from the internet. I fussy cut out and adhered to one of the trees and added the snowman. 

    The silver snowflake is an ornament that I had bought in a package of snowflakes and this one was deformed so instead of tossing it I decided to use as a back ground of sorts.

    I worked tulle in and around the decorations and edges the ends with the gesso and glitter.

    I finished off with snowflake sequins, paper flowers and thread. Be sure to hop over to Eileen Hull’s blog and link up your Favorite Things creation and see what the rest of the inspiration team has created!
