The Heart of Christmas Blog Hop


Hi Everyone,

Today I am participating in a Blog Hop with some other Art with Heart Team members, to bring you some ideas for Christmas! Funny enough I didn’t need much encouragement to craft for Christmas since I LOVE Christmas…you know, just a little (ha ha).

I know each Christmas I use a lot of gift tags (because I LOVE Christmas remember, and that means spoiling those closest to me!). So it seemed only fitting that my first Christmas project for this year (yes, in May, much to my husband’s astonishment) that I make a tag.

I did make a similar Christmas card to this last year, I just altered it a little to make a smaller version.


I punched my piece of Crumb Cake cardstock with the Scalloped Tag Topper punch and then ran it through the Big Shot with my Brick Wall Textured Embossing Folder.
I diecut the wreath using the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits and adhered it using my Fine Tip Glue pen. I then used the Holly Berry Punch on Real Red cardstock to punch the bow and berries. With the Stampin’ Write Marker (Real Red) I added some details to the bow. I stamped the Christmas greeting from the timeless Teeny Tiny sentiments stamp set in Real Red and diecut that using the banner die in the Popcorn Box Thinlits. I popped up the sentiment with some Stampin’ Dimensionals. I finished off with a bit of Wink of Stella over the berries.  Is it even possible to do anything Christmas related without Wink of Stella? (no! Not if you are me!).

2017-2018 Annual Catalogue Sneak Peek

AWHT Blog Hop

Tonight I am participating in a blog hop along with the super talented ladies in the Art With Heart Team. We thought it would be fun to share some fabulous ideas to inspire you from our brand new 2017-2018 annual catalogue, which is available 1st June. Be sure to request your copy of the catalogue today!

It’s an exciting time with the New Annual Catalogue almost ready for release. As a demonstrator we get to pre-order some of the new pretties to play with – oh my, so much fun!

So I narrowed my choices for today’s sneak peek to include:
– Label Me Pretty stamp and punch bundle
– Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set
– Color Theory Memories & More Card Pack


For the first card I decided to make a fancy fold card for a change, so I made a double fold card. Using the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set I made my own pattern paper and the Label Me Pretty bundle to finish the card with a sentiment. I also used 4 of the 5 new In-Colours; Powder Pink, Berry Burst, Fresh Fig and Lemon Lime Twist.


For my second card I wanted to use a card from the new Memories & More collection. I chose this card in Old Olive and matched with with Dapper Denim and a hint of Berry Burst for a bit of a lift. I love this new stamp in the Label Me Pretty set! It’s so pretty!! I coloured the image with Stampin’ Write Markers and a swipe of Wink of Stella across the banner.


Thanks for stopping by as part of the Art with Heart Team blog hop, I hope you enjoyed the sneak peek of the new products today. The next blog you are off to is with the talented Rachel Palmieri.
