Today is the day my project is featured on Craft Project Central!  I hope you enjoy and will hop over to CPC so you can get the full tutorial.


Visions of sugarplums dancing in your head?  Create charming ornaments featuring three of the most well-known characters from the Christmas classic “The Nutcracker”.  Hang them in your own tree or give them as a present with the matching gift box.  The foil snowflake, sentiment and embellishments are sure to make a wow package presentation.  The cute, quick matching card pulls the set together for a complete and elegant handmade present this holiday season.

CPC: Quilter’s Christmas Sampler

As a guest designer over at Craft Project Central for the moth of October, I’m happy to show off all the other projects available this month.  Today’s project is brought to you by Sandy Mott.  Get ready and get cozy for Sandy’s quilted tutorial.


What quilter wouldn’t love this receiving this Quilter’s Christmas Sampler to adorn their sewing room wall at Christmas?! This 12″ x 12″ sampler looks as if it’s made of fabric and will delight any person who loves to sew. Quilters, stampers, and crafters of all kinds have a lot in common – an appreciation of handmade projects made with love and patience. This sampler is no exception. Make one for your favorite friend who quilts/sews and “warm” their heart!

CPC: Birthday Memories Supply Box & Gift Bags

I am a big fan of Stampin’ Up’s Birthday Delivery suite and today’s Craft Project Central tutorial by Buffy Cooper highlights these lovely products so well!  I hope you are inspired to try out the projects posted so far – but more is still coming!


Paper crafters often have friends and family who need a last-minute card for a birthday, and, of course, they usually ask for one when you have the least amount of time to make it. Then there are those times when you remember a co-worker’s birthday as you’re running out the door and don’t have time to make a card. In this tutorial, you’ll make a box to hold birthday supplies, and we’ll use the Birthday Delivery Bundle – complete with the Birthday Delivery Photopolymer Stamp Set, Birthday Friends Framelits Dies, and Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper – to create coordinating cards, gift card envelopes, tags, and gift bags. This box is very easy to put together, so you may want to use an extra pack of the Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper to make a set for a gift.
