Advent Calendar/ Christmas/ Plantin Schoolbook

Well here it is, my first Advent Calendar! I got the directions from Kathy at Paper Phenomenon, and although I couldn't get it to look perfect, my kids were happy with it (free candy every day for 24 days??-they better be happy!). So I did my job!
The paper was from DCWV, I picked it because it matched our d├ęcor and the Santa and sleigh were from the Christmas cart. The numbers were cut at 1" from the Plantin Schoolbook cart, and I made Santa's gift bag & will be adding it also.
Who are these people?!! And where's my reindeer??!!

You can't see it, but there's a lil' box behind the sleigh!

Totally matches my walls!!
A couple of things I learn every time I try one of Kathy's projects are that I am not good at handling a glue gun-no matter what! And, boy can I improvise!! Hey, it's a gift, and I intend to use it. Poor santa looks perplexed, he doesn't know whether to title this list as Nice or Completely Naughty! Enjoy...

Mermaid Pop Up card using Cricut Design Space 3

Thank you for stopping by!
In this video tutorial you will learn how use Cricut Design Space 3, Print & Cut, and other little details to make a stand-out Mermaid card for any occasion!

There are 3 videos total.

 In the 1st you will learn how to add a Pop-Up element, using Score lines with Cricut Design Space, and shapes available in the Cricut Access library.



In the 2nd video, you will learn how to Add Text to personalize your card.
***Key points are to always EDIT in groups, allowing yourself to work in sections. Once your text looks as you like:  Select the entire text box, flatten it, then attach it to your shape. It will automatically cut your shape and keep your text as a print option.***

The 3rd video will explain assembly, as well as the "Bleed" option to printing your shapes. I hope you enjoy learning how to use all of these awesome elements in Cricut Design Space3. Please leave me feedback, or a link to where I can see what you have created!

Hope Frame with Bible Verse

I was inspired to write this Bible verse to go along with this picture frame and Hope banner. It can be found in Psalm 31: 24, and it reads: "Be strong and take heart all you who hope in the Lord." Suffering from any type of cancer is devastating, and the words of David in what is one of the most beautiful books of the  Old Testament can really shed some light into a relationship in which the only comfort that really made a difference was the one promised by our very maker. If you, or someone you know is suffering from this horrible disease, my hope is that you find comfort not only in your surroundings and those you know, but also in the love of our God, just as David did in the darkest moments of his life.
For this project I used the Cricut to make the banner and flowers. I hand-painted the Bible verse and background with watercolors, color pencils, and ink. TFL!
I'll also be sharing this over at Link up for Pink.
