It's coming up Paris!

My granddaughter and I were recently at Hobby Lobby and she mentioned she was tired of all the fairies and "baby stuff" in her room. It was time to have a big girls room. She is 8!  Lol. So she loves all the new Paris\French theme items. Even at a discount, to decorate her entire room, it is going to be costly. So instead here is my beginning take on Paris. Ohh la-la....enjoy.

Welcome to the 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop hosted by Honeybearz Designs

 I am excited to be a guest designer for the hop today.
So, if you came here from Heather's blog then you are in the right place. Otherwise, jump back to  Lisa's blog so you don't miss any of the fun.

Today I have made a Wintery Thank you card for my daughter who is student teaching and wanted to give her teachers a little something. I used a silhouette thank you card file and added a snowman  from a larger piece of My Minds Eye winter Wonderland  paper with pop dots. I then thought it would be fun to add a little wobble on the back.   
I think it came out so cute. I am sure my daughter is going to love it for her teacher.

I also made another accordion card using a silhouette file of Santa and his sleigh. My granddaughter loved this file and of course she had to have a card to give her teacher too. LOL.
 So she assisted me in cutting the file out and then after she went to bed,  I cut another copy of the file out using DCWV Chalkboard paper which is extremely sturdy and ran it through my Xyron to make the entire card a little sturdier for all the little hands that I am sure will be handling it. :) We also added some Liquid pearls for reindeer eyes and here it is. Hope you enjoy. 

Now don't forget to hop over to see what the wonderfully talented Miss Ashley has for you. This is such a fun hop with many wonderful creative ideas. 

Thank you again to Lisa and the wonderful sponsors!

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful and creative day!

Welcome to the 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop hosted by Honeybearz Designs

 I am excited to be a guest designer for the hop today.
So, if you came here from Lisa's blog then you are in the right place.

I wanted to make something for two of my girls who moved into new homes this past month. 

The supplies I used:

Cricut Word Collage Cartridge 
Mini gel pens
Chomas Gel pen holder 
Ribbon (Michaels) 
A christmas pick (Michaels)
Frame (Kohls -picked it up real cheap on Black Friday) 
Ranger Stickles - Green, Christmas Red and Frosted Lace.

This is the first time I have used the Chomas gel pen holder and it was so easy and fun to use. I will be using this more often. :) Once I had used the pens to complete the outline, I added a little bit of stickles to add some extra sparkle. Can never have enough sparkle, especially at Christmas. :-)
And here is the one I have all put together:
Super easy and fun project. I think my daughters will love it.  Thanks for stopping by. 
Now hop on over to Mary to see what wonderful project she has created.  And in case you get lost along the way, the entire lineup is posted below.  

Thank you Lisa for allowing me to be a guest designer today and to all the wonderful sponsors a huge thank you for your support!!  I have really enjoyed being part of this hop and hope you have had some fun also.
