Runway Inspired Challenge #70–Merry Christmas!

Hola friends!!

I’m popping in quickly to share my project for the latest Runway Inspired Challenge!  It’s a super dramatic and inspirational design – Jen has such a knack for finding the coolest stuff!! Check it!!

RIC70 Graphic

I was inspired by the clean graphic lines and the color palette.  Here’s my take on the inspiration:

RIC70 - Merry Christmas

This is a pretty simple and straightforward design.  I loved the red, black and white color palette, as well as the white space from the inspiration photo.  I didn’t want to overdo it, so I stayed clean and simple.  I’ve listed the products that I used below.

Please click on through to the Runway Inspired Challenge Blog to get all of the details of the latest challenge, as well as to take a peek at the designs that my sweet teammates created for you!  This challenge is being sponsored by Ellen Hutson’s Online Store, and she’s offering up a sweet prize for the winner!  Your take on the challenge is due by Friday, October 31st!

Avery Elle–Joy To the World!


I’m baaaaack!  LOL


10-17-14 Joy to the World


Popping in quickly to share another of my Avery Elle projects for the current release.  This project features the gorgeous new stamp set called Joy to the World, and it has coordinating dies!  This came together super easily, and I think could very easily be mass produced for holiday cards!  I trimmed out the card base, and die cut the front panel using the Birch Wood Grain CS and the Finished Frames die.  I stamped the “ornament” using VersaMark onto some Pure White CS, heat embossed it with red embossing powder, and then die cut it using the coordinating Joy to the World Elle-Ments.  The sprig (a die that I had in my stash) was die cut from some Celery CS and adhered to the card front with foam tape.  I adhered the “ornament” to the card front with foam tape, and strung some silver cord through the front panel to make it look like the ornament was hanging from the tree.  I adhered some red, green and silver sequins, and added some pearls for extra dimension.  I die cut the holly from some Celery CS using the Season’s Greetings Elle-Ments – they’re adhered with foam tape.  A few red gems and we’re done!   I was pretty happy with the way this turned out!!  I’ve listed the products used below.


That’s it for me today, friends!  My sister and BIL are still here, and we’ve got some fun stuff planned!  Hope you have a great weekend planned, too!  Thanks so much for stopping by!
