There Must've Been Some Magic In That Old Silk Hat

Our last Christmas class of the year was this past weekend and although we went overtime, we had fun making a bunch of Christmas tags to get ready for the season. Remember this telescoping snowman tag I shared with you earlier?

Well, Don put his own spin on it and gave the snowman some life! Love the hat Don! I'm told he made it by using the reverse wonky Spellbinder dies and adding in extra strips to form the hat. Great idea!

"Beautiful" Box of Drawers

So after Don took my Box of Drawers class, I knew he would come back with a blue version of it. I was right! He dropped off this sample last week to show us what he made. Instead of a stamped image, he used the "beauty" or "beautiful" kanji cut from the Pagoda Cricut Cartridge.

Sorry, the next photo is not so good, but I wanted to share it anyway. I know it's blurry but that's the best I could do with my iphone. Wanted to show you that Don added some extra washi for the sides of the drawers and a gem for the "drawer pull". It makes it look more like a real drawer now! Thanks Don for sharing this project!

Autumn Greetings

I was browsing the store a few days ago and happened upon this beauty of a card! I just love how Kiyomi was colored up in sepia tones! Coloring is amazing and love how she was paired up with some Martha Stewart butterflies from the border stickers. Found out the card was made by one of our customers- Delma. Thanks Delma! Love this card!

Here's a close up of Kiyomi...
