Day 23-Last Minute Christmas Stickers


This is a super easy and fun way to make a gift a little more unique. Simply add a sticker to your holiday package. These come in two colorways, red or pink. You will need Avery 2 inch Round Labels, product number 22807. All you need to do is download the pink one or the red one, push print and you're set.

Use these fun stickers to make sure your holiday cards make it to their destinations. My sister, Anna, didn't want to lick her envelopes and instead used a baby wipe....the opened envelope when it arrived to me without the card. So sad. Make sure that doesn't happen to you by making these simple Stickers, or use them to brighten up a package.

Comes in either pink or red colorways.

Day 22-More Cards!


Wow! We're on a roll for cards! I hope you are downloading all of them and using them this Holiday Season! Enjoy!

Aren't these cute! You have Sharon to thank for that!

Day 21-Graphic Patterns for Decoupage Clothespins


Feel free to use these colorful and simple graphic patterns as gift tags or for their intended purpose, which is for decoupaged clothespins. I found a great tutorial here, but remember these must be printed on a laser printer if you want to do decoupage, otherwise they will smear. A laser printer has heat which sets the ink, and an inkjet (which is what most home printers are) does not.

If you just want to print them at home, like I did, you can put them on the easy way with double side tape. Done.

These also make a great last minute gift. Download the file here.

Below are a few more close-ups of the clothespins. I designed the "Joyful" card for Shutterfly this year and of course the "Merry Christmas" one is my Santa Matryoshka Card I designed for the 24 days of Christmas Downloads earlier.

6 years & a free card download

Yesterday marked being married to my husband, Christopher, for 6 years. And just as this card states, "Today is the Best Day Ever" and I added on the inside, "and so is every day I am with you". Cheesy I know. He is exactly what I could have ever imagined plus so much more. He loves me more than I could have ever dreamed and I am so thankful for that.

So, in order to make this post not just about how wonderful my husband is, I have decided to include a free anniversary card printable too. Just  click here to download and enjoy.

Day 7-Mini Lantern Christmas Scene, Anthropologie Snow Globe Inspired


After seeing this Anthropologie snow globe using a Mason jar I just knew I had to make one. But I didn't want it to be exactly the same, and I noticed that lots of others had made knock-off versions, probably because it is $25 and who has that kind of money!

So, instead I used a mini tea light lantern (FREE from an exchange), some faux snow ($1.99 at a thrift store) and 2 mini trees (50 cents each at a thrift store). Total out of pocket, less than $3.00! Can you believe it!

All you need to do is hot glue the trees down and sprinkle some faux snow in. Whaa la! Simple Christmas Decoration that hardly cost you a thing! Have fun!

Day 6- Santa Letter


How stinkin' cute is this! Go get the free download on Sharon's blog!

Day 5- Snowflake Glitter Ornament


This super easy craft would even be fun for the kiddos. Simply follow the instructions below.

1. Print out this pdf .
2. Cut out snowflake and trace the snowflake onto thin cardboard. Think cereal box thickness.
3. Using a paintbrush, coat the cardboard snowflake with glue.
4. Cover with glitter and let dry completely.
5. Hot glue on another snowflake on top. I used the ornaments that are at Target right now that are 4 for a $1. They look like these ones, but aren't that expensive.
6. Hot glue a large rhinestone in the middle.

It's as easy as that! You can even punch a hole in the top and put string to hang them from the tree or window.
