Hey Everyone,
So I have a few posts back to back as you can see from my previous post showing my 2016 christmas cards... .... So one of my resolutions for 2017 was to finish some of my "unfinished projects".  So to start off is my youtube name sign. I started this sign a year ago and I never quite liked how it was turning out so I set it aside.... So now it was time to finish it. I go over all of the products used in my youtube video so click HERE. All of the products are shown in the beginning of the video. I promise once I get caught up I will list the products used on all my projects on these blogposts as well.....



Ok thats it for now.. Thanks for stopping by!!!

2016 Christmas Cards

Ok so I know its 2017 and Christmas has long passed but I wanted to share the cards I made. I will link all of the Youtube videos where I go over all of the products used for each card...

So the very first card I made was the design I chose to send out to all of my close friends and relatives... I created it in several different colors which I will show... The first two are the white with silver and them the burgundy and gold....  I love the card so much I made it in blue as well... I used a bunch of dies on these cards.





Now onto the next card.... I have to say this is ,y least favorite of all that I made but I still like how it came out.

In this video I also show the blue card above...

Now for my final christmas card of 2016.... This one is mostly dies as well, and I love how this one turned out as well....


I hope you enjoyed the cards.... 
Thanks so much for stopping by!!!
