Santa and His Reindeer

Hi Crafty Friends,
I am SOOOOOO EXCITED to announce that I am now on the Paper Nest Dolls Design Team! Here is my first card using the darling Christmas Minis release. I decided to create a slimline card since that seems to be the new trend and it allowed me to show off the most images on one card! Below you not only get to meet North Pole Mini Santa and his North Pole Mini Reindeer, but also my family in our REINDEER Shirts I made us for Christmas.

Make Crafty Friends Q & A:
Q: Which reindeer is your favorite?
A: Me? I like Prancer! Because that movie is my mom's favorite, she cries every time.


My Nephew William, Me, My Identical Twin Sister Lauren, and My Nephew Thomas in our Reindeer Shirts I made!


Best MOM ever, my sister, Lauren


My Grandma who is now 98 years old! LOVE HER SO MUCH!!

Merry Christmas Critter Shaker

Hi Crafty Friends,
Are you ready for Christmas? Let Kat Scrappiness help! There are some fabulous Christmas dies, stamps, sequins, and sprinkles in the store! This shaker features the NEW Merry Christmas Die and the darling Merry Little Critters Stamp Set, Holiday Fun Sequin Mix, and Christmas Candy Sprinkles.

Make Crafty Friends Q & A:
Q: Which is your favorite Merry Christmas Critter from below?
A: Me? I love the little reindeer!

I started my card with die cutting the Merry Christmas sentiment out of red cardstock.

Next, I glued it down on my panel. And created a frame for my panel using the Kat Scrappiness Stitched Roped Nested Rectangle Die and Kat Scrappiness Acetate Sheets.

I  added a mixture of Christmas Candy Sprinkles and Holiday Fun Sequins to the center of my card and mounted the frame with acetate to create my shaker.
 I finished the card by adding all the little Merry Critters to the edges of my frame.

Supplies:
Kat Scrappiness Acetate Sheets
Kat Scrappiness Christmas Candy Sprinkles
