Ho Ho Ho-layout for CDD

Hi everyone.. Here today to share a pocket card style layout I created using some fun die cuts and a few sentiment stamps :)
So, fun to create some individual cards and sentiment stamps are perfect for little touches of detail..

Here is what I created:


My three  kids are all grown up.. 
My daughter moved out a while ago, my eldest son is in the army till next March and he will not be home this Christmas, which makes me sad :(  Although, he will be able to join us Friday the 26th for the weekend..
I wanted to create something I can add photos of all of my kids onto this Xmas.. 
since we usually all under the same room during the Christmas holidays..
and this year, were hoping my Mother-in-law will be joining us as well, so everyone keep your fingers crossed..

How about a few close ups:
I used the "Christmas Wishes!" stamp from the Simply Christmas stamp set on this cute little label.

and for this adorable santa face, I cut out a blurb die cut and added the "Ho Ho Ho" which is also from the Simply Christmas stamp set..

Here is the stamp set I used:

and you can buy it HERE

Thanks for stopping by today
and have a great day

Life is short so lick the bowl- card for CDD Design team

Hi eveyrone..
I'm here to share a cute little holiday card I created using one of the sentiments from the "Baked With Love!" stamp set by Craftin Desert Diva's..

Here is what I created:
I'm on a twine kick right now..LOL Every project has to have some twine on it and for this card, I ran it along the edge of my card and added a little bow above my sentiment label..

for my sentiment, I heat embossed it onto brown cardstock using white embossing powder and white pigment ink.. it got a little messy, but I think its just the brand of embossing powder I was using..I actually prefer ranger, but had none in white :)  That's going on my Xmas wish list :)

Here is the stamp set I used:
and you can buy it HERE


I planned on creating a December Daily this year.. and how perfect is this sentiment stamp set for all of my holiday baking pages..

added a heart flourish and with some snow flakes on it..
little drops of baby blue stickles for added details..

Added some Diamond stickles to the white of the hat..

my mittens and scarf.. winter essentials..LOL

I cut this using my Cricut and the Winter Woodland cartridge..

and their ya have my take on our sketch..
