Christmas Card 2014



Here is my 2014 Christmas Card.   I used 3 different Christmas papers from JoAnn's, red card stock for the card base, cut the scalloped circle in the red card stock and circle from Elegant Edges Cricut cartridge.  Using the Tim Holtz edge distressing tool, I distressed 3 sides of the card.    The "Santa reading his list" stamp is from LeBlanche and I used Versafine black ink to make the image.   I only used a small portion of the Santa Stamp by pressing the white card stock circle onto the stamp.  I used Tim Holz Distress inks and markers.    I colored Santa's cheeks, nose and his list with Spun Sugar marker and inked the edges with Very Berries Distress ink coloring Santa's coat a little as well.   Then I used Zig pen glue and added the Martha Steward gold glitter to the collar and cuffs of the coat.   The "Merry Christmas" and inside sentiment stamps are from Stampin' Up.     I used a number of different red and green ribbons on all of the almost 70 cards I put together and used the 'cheater' method of making a bow.   Although you can't really see it in the photo, I put Glossy Accents (love, love this product) on Santa's glasses and the list so they stand out a little bit.    I have posted a video above on how I made this card on YouTube.
Thanks for stopping by.  Amy

Craft Room ReOrganization and GIVEAWAY announcement!

I recently went over 500 subscribers on my YouTube Runaway Crafting Channel and to celebrate, I'm going to have a GIVEAWAY.

But in the meantime, I ordered new storage cubes for my craft room that I moved into almost 3 years ago.  Here is the video from when I first moved in back in April of 2011.

Here is a new video of the room almost 3 years later:
Here is a picture one of the new storage units: 
Each cube is 15x15 inches; over all it measures 30 inches high, 15 inches deep and 45 inches long.  I ordered two sets of these cubes.

Spider Halloween Card 2013



2013 Spider Halloween Card for my great niece and nephews.

I used DCWV Ghosts & Goblins stack paper; Tim Holtz distress ink and markers, sticky black vinyl and Cricut Doodlecharms to cut the spider at 2.5 inches.

For more details on how I put this together, I put together a video you can link to below.
I put the cut sealed with a fish stamp on the back of the card and colored it with Distress Markers.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
