Washi Tape Candle Holder Tutorial

Today I am popping in with a quick washi tape candle holder tutorial.  To start you will need some plain glass candle holders and tea light candles.
Grab your favorite washi tape and cover the bottom half of the candle holders.

Add a few fun embellishments.

I used the Simple Stories Sweater Weather collection for these candles.  The little woodland critters are so cute.

Voila a quick and easy gift.  Perfect for this Christmas!

Thanks for stopping by.

Christmas Countdown

I do a Christmas Countdown every year - I have them all over the house, on my desk at work and make them for friends as well.  This year I made one using the Kaisercraft Christmas Countdown Tree and the Bundled Up collection from Crate Paper.

I covered the wooden tree with the green chevron paper.

I used the reverse side of the paper which is gold to cover the stand part of the tree.

Then I added the super cute brads all over the tree.

I covered the wooden number pieces with several layers of patterned paper and some fun gold numbers.

To top off the tree I used the rosette from the standout stickers.

To store the rest of the numbers I created a little pocket on the back of the tree with a leftover piece of patterned paper.

I really love this countdown it's so cute and I can't wait to use it.  Today is the first day of Scrapbook Nerd's 12 days of Christmas which will be filled with fun Christmas ideas like this Christmas Countdown.  Hope to see you there.
Thanks for stopping by.

Fall Candle

I found these candle holders really cheap at Michaels they were 80% off so I grabbed a few and added some fun wood leaves and paper to dress them up.
I used one of the journaling cards from the Simple Stories Sweater Weather collection and added an enamel dot to the flower.

Then I wrapped some twine around the candle and added the Lawn Fawn wood leaves for decorations.

I love making fun home decor like this for my house.

Thanksgiving Mason Jar

Happy Thanksgiving to my friend south of the border!

I try and get the kids to write down what they are thankful every year on Thanksgiving but always seem to misplace the little notes and papers they write them on so this year I made a little place to keep all our little thankful notes.

I used the Simple Stories Sweater Weather collection and added a simple journaling card along with a doily to the front of the jar.  For the lid I covered it with patterned paper and added a few die cuts.

I used some of the journaling cards and created little note cards for us to write on.

Now every year I will get them to fill this jar with what they are thankful for.

I am Thankful for all my friends, family and blog readers.

Thanks for stopping by.

I love Disneyland and the only thing better than being there is scrapbooking the pictures after!  I used the MAMBI 8x8 page kit for the base of this min album again but folded the pages and kept them at 8x4.  I used a binder ring to hold them all together.
For the cover I used a journaling card for the title and added the fun chipboard camera and used my Epiphany Crafts Shape Studio Tool Chevron 25 to add some fun embellishments.

I love when the kids try on all the crazy Disney hats.

Rides, rides, rides - they love the rides.

It's always so nice seeing the boys smiling and getting along.

The Disney shows really are incredible.

And an USie on It's a Small World ride :)

Simple Stories Cards

I love using the Simple Stories journaling cards to make some quick cards.  I really loved the little fox in the Sweater Weather collection and had to use him to make this little FOXY card.

For the second card I cut out the Autumn sentiment and used a scallop circle punch to create a background for it layering several circles.
