Happy Desk Peeking Day Ladies :) 
(if you'd care to play along with us the link up for this hop starts here at our hostess Julia's blog.)


 So that cutting "Christmas" dies that I have not played with yet or much trend is continuing this week too. ( in smaller doses than the snowflakes ha ha) (some first round of snowflake projects can be seen in this blog post here)

 Off to the left, piles of dies I am wanting to cut or used over the weekend and not put away yet.
I did finally try that lawn fawn gift bag die too ( I have had this for years) it finally occurred to me after seeing it in the drawer you needed to cut it twice to have both sides of the bag. yes, I am more used to sizzix dies that seem to be a little more I get them at first glance type things)

This set of words from Ellen Hutson I did not cut apart thinking I was going to make shaker windows with them but, I ended up after this was shot taping all those bits and pieces together like this on the back sides and keeping them flat. I did however actually turn one of the taylored expressions diecuts into a shaker card.

I probably got too many seed beads into it but, it makes a fun noise when it shakes. :) I think this could be come addictive these shakers so, I probably should look for a source for the clear acetate. this piece came from one of the previous Hero Arts monthly kits.
I am signed up for 4 Christmas cards a month in the Splitcoaststampers Christmas cards challenge
( its more like a cheer squad of you can do this more than the whip is snapping over your head challenges) no one cares if you do your cards "on time" so, for me its mostly a reminder poke to make a few when the mood strikes because, there are times in the end of the spring when there is no feeling to make them.

I love all your die cutting frenzy! :) And what a pretty shaker card! Stacy, I also signed up for four Christmas cards a month again this year. It sure makes it easier, come December. I also do the insides when I make them. I used to have to do that at the end, and that is almost like making another card! So I do it as I go, and also stamp the outside of the envelope, which I probably wouldn't bother doing if I saved it till I mailed it!
Happy New Year! #25

Hi Stacy, I hope you had a lovely Christmas. Love the cards, and the die cuts. It's irritating when they are not quite what you thought, I agree. Hope you have a good week, and a Happy New Year. Hugs, Shaz #3 xx

Hope your Christmas was good. Die cuts for Christmas cards are a god send for the busy crafter, where would we be without them! Have a great woyww, Angela x 6

I love that card! SO beautiful. I really need to pull out some of my dies. I did use some I hadn't used before over Christmas and it was fun. I have a pile of scrap paper too lol.

Have a great week!
