{12 Weeks of Christmas 2013}: Christmas Crackers with the Stampin' Up! Envelope Punch Board Video Tutorial

Hello and welcome to another installment of my {12 Weeks of Christmas} series!  I've been working on a video and it's ready to share...

Click {HERE} to watch!

My success in this project is due to the excellent instruction provided by UK crafter, Caroline Hallett "CraftyHallett." Search her on YouTube; she's got a lot of great videos.  Her measurements for the Christmas crackers which I made worked out perfectly.  If you've got a particular gift you're looking to "wrap" in a cracker, Traci Cornelius (another UK crafter) offers a great video on figuring your measurements.  There's such a wealth of information out there!

The Stampin' Up! Envelope Punch Board (#133774) can be used to make so many fun projects!

{12 Weeks of Christmas 2013}: Mosaic Madness Card

I'm seeing a lot of fun potential for holiday stamping in the Mosaic Madness loveliness.  Here's my first card using the Mosaic Madness set (W130246, C130249) and coordinating Modern Mosaic TIEF (129984).  What I didn't use in this project is the coordinating Mosaic Punch, which can be purchased with the set as a bundle with additional savings (W132734, C132733).  Saving that for the next project!

I used the Bird Builder (117191) punch to make the petals for my poinsettia and the a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels (119246) to jazz up the card.  

Petite Pairs (W128706, C122497) offers the sentiment, which I inked in Classic Real Red and sponged with Old Olive.  The other color I'm using here (in card stock and seam binding ribbon) is Crumb Cake.  I also used it to sponge around the petals of the poinsettia.  Do you see the little jewel in the "C" of Christmas?
