Now on to my project, I was sent this Desk Organiser Set – FDPO-026 and had the fun of putting it all together and decorating it with all the goodies that came with  from the fabulous sponsors.


The MDF is relatively thick and easy to work with. And there is no questions with the directions, easy to follow and easy to put together.


Because I knew this was going to be a functional, I wanted to make sure the inside was also had finishing touches along with the outside. I did decoupage the insides of the drawers and the back of the project. I left nothing unfinished.


I didn’t want to take away from the functionality of the top shelf, so I only added a few winter trees and snow to make a fun wintery scene. I added a few logs of Cinnamon sticks to add to the feel.

So hop along and see all the other amazing, usable projects from the other ladies and good Luck.

Advent Calendar – Pine Tree Creative Embellishments


I totally love the Christmas Count Down Nicolle has in the store. The kids and I saw this project up on Pinterest and figured we should try it, the Aunties would love it. It is an Advent Calendar made out of PVC pipe and its filled with all kinds of great treats for everyone.


I had Adam do the hard part with cutting the PVC pipe, the rest was up to Olivia and I. She helped put this together as a gift to the Aunties. We made special home made Caramels, stuff some of the days with doggie treats for their “boys”, there’s also some lips stuff for the Aunties and of course their is also some alcohol to help celebrate the season.


After we got all the pipes covered with paper, it was a matter of putting it all together. It had to be strong enough to hold the weight of the bottles, so I used some industrial strength glue.


We put on the covers, I used 2 punches. I had one that was bigger than the 2 inch hole and then I used the 2 inch circle. Olivia wanted to mix up the numbers so her Aunts had to work to find the days.


I made a little arrangement of flowers and ribbon and used the Holly and Berries Flourish for a little more dimension, I used spray to add colour to match the paper collection. I added the title Christmas Countdown and the Year 2018. Olivia says we need to make a new tradition, next year the advent calendar has to be passed along to another person. I think it’s a great new tradition.

Here is a video of how this all came together.


I hope you enjoy.

Merry Christmas Gift Card Tags


Tis the season of giving, I wanted to make some fun gift tags for those special people in my life. These tags were creative, I decided to incorporate gift cards right on the tag themselves. I used a file folder on one and a little gift bag on the other. I used the beautiful Yuletide collection for that classic reds and whites.

Nick Yuletide Gift Tags.jpg

I started out using large tags and adding a layer of paper with the Gingerbread Paper. After minimal background stamping, I needed to work on the file folder to hold the one gift card. Using paper from the 6×6 Collection to cover the folder, I make a small cluster with the Die-Cut Elements and Stickers.

I layered up the gift cared with various tags and more elements and added the Merry Christmas Title and trees. I used a magnetic closure with the file folder to help keep it closed.

On the other tag, I used a small gift bag to hold the gift card.

Again using a small cluster of die-cut elements and stickers, I added more details on the bag and tag. I used a small amount of flowers, but wanted to give the effects of snow and ice to add to the feel of the seasons. I added glitter glass to those elements.

Nick Yuletide Tags Back

On the back side of the tags, I just made a small cluster and added a sentiment with the Word Stickers.

The Sound of Winter

Welcome to another month at Creative Embellishments and another new twist. This month was to use inspiration from the photo and add animals to the project. I decided to use a paper collection that had animals in it. I started with the Mitten Mini Album and added a fair number of background work with various stencils and stamps, one of my favourites is the Distress Grid stencil. And I also used the Snowflakes Stencil I got from inspiration form the photo. After the background work was done, it was a matter of putting together small clusters using the Pine Needle Frame and Snowflakes. Lots and lots of supplies used in this project so I made a video of how the album came together. I fun little mini album that can sit out all winter long. IMG_6586

Here is the creative process:

Here are some close-ups of the project.








Thank you for stopping by, I hope you’re inspired by the project and the inspirational photo, and remember the twist to use an animal somewhere on your project.

Winter Trails Holiday Cards

I’m sharing a fun quick set of cards I made for More Than Words Mini Challenge. I just picked up the paper collections from Studio Light and totally love them. They work great to get some cards done with limited time on your hands. The paper packs come with already pre-cut elements. No fussy cutting (which I cant stand doing).

Winter Tales Holiday Cards.jpg

I made a little video of how easy these came together, the elements really cut down on the time of putting these together.


So it’s a matter of layering and adding all the pretty elements.

Here are some close-ups for you.



I used the Shine Flair and flourish chipboards from Creative Embellishments to add to the cards.

Aurora Borealis

Now that the days are shorter and the nights are longer, we have the opportunity to see some Northern Lights. Last Friday night it was predicted to have a mild storm and we were located in the band (the kids and I have done a lot of research on this subject). Of course we all feel asleep and we missed it. One memory I have when I was a kid was seeing them with my parents. It is something I hope my kids will experience in the future. The whole concept of the Northern Lights makes it so magical and surreal.

Northern Lights 2.jpg

I made a video of the creative process for you all.

I did a fair number of embossing on this project, I did start with the background using a resist technique with the Grunge Star Stamp and a really subtle embossing colour. Then I  added the little stars from the Star Envy Stencil with plain modelling paste.


I set aside to dry and begin working on the embossing of the chipboards, Using the Constilations, Star Pieces and the Distress Circle Boarder I used layers of embossing powder one on top of the previous one layering and swirling with powder with a metal tweezers.


After all the chipboards were done, it was a matter of working on the background to get the magical and whimsical effects with some Lindy’s. After the background was finished it was just a matter of layering and adding all the fine details with the paper elements, chipboards and flowers.


Once all the layers, time to play with sequins, glitter and microbeads, and to finish it off and just add the tittle.


Thank you for stopping by today.

“Adore” Shabby Chic Shadow Box

Hi All, I just want to share a cute shabby chic shadow box I made. I used the Mixed Media Place Mood board this month for inspiration. Its such a shabby board this month and I love how soft and elegant the colour palette is this month and  I just wanting to create something pretty. I couldn’t decided between a canvas or a shadow box, I decided to go with the box.

Shabby Box Adore

I made a video of the creative process.


I started out with prepping the box, I never know how this will evolve, I just know I may start one way and sometimes it goes completely different than how I envision it. After prepping the box, I started with some stamping with the Distressed Moroccan Stamp.


After a few layers of various papers, I used the Greek Key Pattern Stencil. Sometimes the texture will be really visible and sometimes not so much, but it is how it evolves.


After the background work, I built up the focal point, using the distress harlequin pieces to add some lift. I added various spray’s to the pieces layering.


After finishing the layers and adding all the little details with the mica flakes and pearls, I wanted to add a title to the piece and used the “Adore” from the Family Small Word Set. I used the same technique with the sprays on the Adore and placed on the box.

Here are a few more close ups for you.

Domestic Goddess Journal 7 Dots Studio

Hi all, Heather here today sharing a journal I made with the Domestic Goddess collection. I started with a plain B6 Journal and picking out the paper to go with it. I decide on the Domestic Goddess pages Raspberry Pudding, White Apron and Proudly Handcrafted.  I used various stencils from the Hazy Days, Paint Chips collection to the Dreamscapes Collection to add a fair number of background work to the paper. After inking and heat embossing, I added the focal point the brush and the wings. Layering it over the Domestic Goddess Tags, I added more details with flowers, Dreamscapes Chipboard and metal embellishments.

I made a video of the creative process and how this journal evolved.

Fall Mini Album ~ Creative Embellishments

Another Month over at Creative Embellishments and another great challenge. This month is based on a colour challenge and the twist to add leaves to the project.


Today I decided to use one of the great mini albums Nicolle has in the store. Perfect during this time of the season, I used the Fall Mini, I added various flowers, metal trinkets and chipboard. Seeing the mini was only 4 pages. I did encourperate a couple photos as well. I used the simple spray technique on the Zigzag Stitch Boarder. On the Branch and Leaves I used various colours of sprays to resemble the changing of the seasons and highlighted with some wax along the edges. On one page I added a little Season Change Flair.  I used the Autumn Leaves in the flowers clusters to add to the rustic feel of the Mini Album.

I hope you enjoy the little flip through video I have for you today.

Here are some close-ups for you.

Playful Leaves ATC’s

It’s been a while since I just created for myself. Maksim picked me a bunch of pretty leaves the other day and we had them under a book drying. He asked me what I was going to make with them. I really wasn’t sure at the time what to do with them, I saw the challenge over at Scrapki-wyzwaniowo and thought maybe I could combine it with the More Than Words Mini Challenge.


Here is a video of the creative process.

Here are a few close-ups for you.





Thank you for stopping by today.  Enjoy the ever changing scenery this time of year, if  it is spring or fall.
