Punky Sprouts and My Little Shoebox

Hi everyone!  Here at Punky Sprouts, we had the pleasure of partnering up with My Little Shoebox for some Holiday fun!  I played with the super cute TuTu Punk mini album and the Vintage Shop collection from MLS.  I think I've told you how much I like to use product in a different way, right.  So I figured, Punky Sprouts mini album+ owls/pink paper = Christmas mini album, right? 
Here is my take on it:
 I used the Lil' Parchment Blossoms to create this fun tree!  Just fold each circle in half, then half again and stack the wedges together to form a tree.
 I thought this way a fun way to create a wintery snowman.  The ever fabulous Lil' Blossoms in Parchment!
Supplies used:
Punky Sprouts: Tutu Punk mini album, Lil' Lacey Blossoms, Lil' Twiney, Lil' Parchment Blossoms
My Little Shoebox Vintage Shop: Rose Ribbon, French Lace, Heirloom, Attic Treasures, 3D Roll Up Flowers & Accents, Muse Cardstock Alphabet Stickers in Newsprint, Mini Alphabet Stickers in Cream, Kiss & Apple
Now that Christmas is all done and over, I have my album all ready for photos and precious memories! 
Have a safe and Happy New Year!!

Ruby Rock-It Countdown to Christmas

Hi everyone.  Hope you are all doing well.  Well, the holidays are just around the corner and what better way to prep than to create projects and gifts for the holidays.  Christmas is just 10 days away!  Can you believe it?
 I'm super excited to share my first projects for Ruby Rock-It Bella! Fundamentals.  One of my family's traditions is celebrating Saint Nicolas on December 6th.  My parents brought this tradition with them when they moved to the U.S. many years ago and I love that I am able to share it with my children as well.  So, I made these paper cones to fill with candy, nuts and mandarin oranges- yum!
I made this using the beautiful Eklectique range.  Such pretty paper!!
 Here's a close up of the tag I created.  When I opened the package of Bella Bling, I fell in love with the chipboard packaging that was in the package.  I am a nut for text, vintage sheet  music and books, so I just had to use it for the base of this tag!
 This is the front of the cone.  I love vintage photos and images and was in heaven when I looked at this paper range.  Vintage photos right there for me to use as I wish- awesome!
Products used: Eklectique range
 Here is the cone that I made for my son.  I love  that I was able to create not just feminine, girly projects with this range, but I was able to create a very masculine project as well.
I used the 3D Decoupage to decorate the front of this cone.  Oh my gosh, what a great product!  It makes it look as if I spent hours fussy cutting, when all I had to do was pop the images from the sheet and use some foam squares- genius!!
Here's a close-up of the tag.
Product used: Eklectique range
Please stop by the Ruby Rock-It blog for more inspiration every day through Christmas!  We are giving away prizes and I would love for one of you to win it!
All you have to do is 'like' our Facebook
page (Ruby Rock-It), then 'share' it with a friend and have them 'like' it too . Ask them to comment that you sent them ( i.e. Pattie sent me ).
Good luck!!

 A sweet Thank You card- something I truly need this time of year!

Cherry Delight and Christmas cards?

Hi everyone!  Hope you are having a happy and safe December!  I have some MLS cards to share with you today.  I had the uber cute Cherry Delight paper line to work with this month and was really excited about that, but then I got to thinking. Scary right, lol.  I love using non traditional papers to create things with and thought, why not use Cherry Delight to create some Christmas cards.  Here is what I came up with.
This is my first card.

Supplies used: My Little Shoebox Cherry Delight: Bliss, Happy Times, Morning Mist trim pack, Chocolate & Chiffon Double sided Cardstock Paper
I made this fun card using the My Little Shoebox/Unity Stamp Co. snowflake stamp set.  I love this stamp- so cute, versatile and perfect all winter!
 Supplies used: My Little Shoebox Cherry Delight: Charming Serenade, Happy Times
This last card is just a sweet simple card wishing you all Joy this holiday season!
Supplies used: My Little Shoebox Cherry Delight: Charming, Happy Days, 3D Roll Up Flowers & Accents, Firecracker Muse Cardstock Alphabet Sticker
