Frosty Friends Gift Set

Hi there!  I was up yesterday with
and  a Frosty Friends Gift Set that includes a handmade card
and altered paper mache ornament!  Whether you're in need of a Christmas
 or New Year's gift, this idea will suit either to a tee!

I love to keep my snowy friends out long after the Christmas holidays.  
This easy-to-make ornament starts with an usual shaped paper mache ornament that I purchased at Hobby Lobby.  I traced around the design onto a 12X12 paper and cut.  

For the face and body I die-cut oval shapes from one of the 6X6 Paper Pad papers.
  I added them to the front of the ornament with foam adhesive.  

The fun comes in decorating the snowman.  You can choose from any
 of the cute stickers to add to the center of the body. 
 Stitch on some Doodle Twine if you're inclined.

Give your snowman any face that you'd like...enamel dots come in very handy here!

For the scarf I took different colors and several strands of Doodle Twine 
 and braided them into one length.  The two ends were knotted off and trimmed
 and then wrapped around his neck.  

Make a quick little card to go along with the ornament!  
Here I've used some 6X6 papers and one of the Mix & Match Snowmen
 Craft Kit's snowmen and placed him on a snowy hill.

Pile on the cute stickers to complete the scene!

Happy hump day and have a great rest-of-the-week!


  1. Adorable set!! I love the fun colors too! Thanks for the inspiration!

  2. Just awesome!!!!! Pinning them!! xoxo

  3. Oh My Goodness!!! Seriously the CUTEST snowman ornament I have ever seen!! Love how clever you are with twine and you use Doodlebug's products to the fullest measure that they can be used!! WOW - I am just in awe of this cuteness!! You rocked this so much!!!

Beautiful Birthday Shaker Card

Hello and welcome to my contribution to the  SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES and HERO ARTS BLOG HOP

For my project, I have chosen to make this cute shaker birthday card!

Before we get started on the detail, here is a list of supplies that I've used: From Scrapbook Adhesives: Keepsakes Envelope Mix (I used 4" X 3.5") Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4 in, Dual Tip Glue Pen, Crafty Foam Tape Black and the E-Z Runner Grand Refillable Dispenser with E-Z Runner Grand Permanent Dots Refill.  From Hero Arts: Dress Up Stamp and Cut and Kelly's Flags Stamp & Cut
To begin, I added a few star sequins directly to the sticky part of the Keepsake Envelope.
Next I sprinkled some round sequins inside of the pocket.
I used the Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4" to close up the pocket.
I cut a piece of patterned paper the same size as the pocket and mounted it to the sticky back of the pocket.  
After die-cutting the dress bottom from patterned paper, it was pleated along the score lines and then…
