Welcome to my crafting blog. After retirement, my husband and I moved to a beautiful location in the Okanagan area of British Columbia. I love all paper crafts including mixed media, journaling and cards. I also dabble in papermaking, photography, fibre art, and altered books. I am an active member of several card and mixed media groups and on the design team of several challenge blog. I love the world of blogging, it has opened many doors for me. My favourite quote is by Maya Angelou. “You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.” I hope you join me in my search for my creative side. Thanks for stopping by!

Christmas Gift Box

Holly Jolly Christmas Challenges this week has a great challenge, create a Christmas gift box. There are so many types of boxes you can do. 
Every year for a little gift for the people that I visit I make boxes of cards or tags. This little box I cut with my Cricut out of a beautiful Christmas paper by Mind’s Eye.  The paper pack is called Sweet Dreams, Holiday Avenue. I then added my digital image, called “Cecil Wrapped Up” by Digi Doodles Shop.  I think he is just so cute. I colored him with Copics, glitter and gel pens, and a gold leaf marker.  He is already for Christmas giving.
Come join us this week at Holly JollyChristmas Challenges there are so many different creative boxes you could make and it would be one more item ready for Christmas.  If you are stuck for an idea just search “box” on Split Coast Stampers’ web site,  53 types of  boxes come up. 
Thanks for stopping by and have a creative day.
