Guesting at 17turtles!!

Hi everyone!! If you're a regular visitor of my blog you've probably noticed, I'm a huge fan of Juliana Michaels' digital cut files. Therefore I'm super happy to announce that today I'm guesting over at her blog!! I've created a layout especially for today using some amazing cut files from her 17turtles Etsy Store!! On her blog you can see the entire layout I created, but here I'm only showing you a sneak! I used the Pebbles "Home For Christmas" collection, which I really love.

And then, when I was finished with that layout I thought why not do a card as well ... so here it is: 

and a close-up of the cut files I used: 

and if you want to know where to find the cut files to create this card, here they are with the link to Juliana's store: 

Be sure to check out Juliana's Etsy Store for more fantastic cut files!! 

Thank you so much for stopping by!

The photos were taken last Sunday, when we were putting up the tree. Tim is playing with fire and Mats is very happy to have found the Nutcracker again! 

Love these glitter bows: 

Also using some digital cut files (Presents Under The Tree) from 17turtles. 

And this is Susan's sketch for December: super fun, don't you agree?

Pretty Little Studio Christmas Cards

Hi everyone! This week I'm sharing a couple of Pretty Little Studio Christmas cards on the PLS blog. Are you still sending “real” cards or did you switch to digital greetings? I’m still doing paper Christmas cards and I love to use Pretty Little Studio’s papers, vellums, cards, stickers and die-cuts for them.

My “technique” is to use at least 5 different layers on a card. I start with a cardstock base that measures 5” x 5”. The next layer, the vellum, measures 5”too. All the next layers measure 0.5” smaller. Next I choose a die-cut that I want to use and then I start looking for smaller bits and pieces to add under or on top of it. The finishing touch is the faux stitched line. Hope you like them!

Aren't those die-cuts cute?? If you want to see more Pretty Little Studio die-cuts then hop over to the store to have a look!

Here're a few just to give you an idea:

Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a fabulous week!

December Daily 2014 - Days 1 - 3 - Pretty Little Studio

If you're here for the Holiday Coffee Lovers Blog Hop, please go HERE.


Hi everyone! This week's picture challenge at Pretty Little Studio is an easy one for December! I think anything goes with this picture … a Christmas layout, Christmas cards, tags for Xmas presents and of course a “December Daily”, which is what I chose!! Pretty Little Studio’s wide range of Christmas papers, cards, die cuts, banners, flags, stickers, flairs … make for an awesome December Daily! Although I’ve mostly chosen products from the new Holiday Cheer collection, I’ve also used a lot of bits and pieces from older Christmas collections. They all go so well together!

For my cover page I used three different die-cuts, of which my favorite is the golden 25! The flair was adhered to the outside of the page protector as I don’t like how the plastic wrinkles if you put it inside. When I was ready with this page (and the next, which is on the back of this one) I inserted some of Pretty Little Studio’s beautiful “Starry Night Mix” confetti and machine stitched the page protector closed. Love the result!

And this is what the 1st spread looks like: Day 1:

and the close-ups:

And days 2 and 3:

Close-ups of Day 2:

And close-ups of Day 3:

Will you do a December Daily this month?? I  would love to see it!!

And now I would almost forget I made this for the PLS picture challenge! So here's the picture I used for the inspiration:

Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a fabulous week!
