Merry & Bright Holiday House

Hi friends! Thanks for stopping by! Today I'm sharing my latest altered project for Simple Stories using the super fun holiday collection, Merry & Bright! Grab a warm cuppa your favorite drink and come along with me as I share my festive holiday house!
This collection is brimming with delightful holiday sweetness and I wanted to capture it all! Each little "room" within my holiday house is decorated with elements from Merry & Bright, like the puffy stickers, chipboard, bits & pieces and more!
Creating a tiny scene for a few of the boxes was so enjoyable! I love the little presents tied with ribbons, the rustic floral arrangements and the charming sleigh, to name a few. Everything fits just right into each of the rooms and makes for the cutest Christmas house!
The Washi Tape was a perfect fit wrapped around the outside of the house. I love the how easy it is to add washi tape to my altered projects!
A Santa is standing in the main box as snowflakes and hearts silently fall, wishing a Merry Christmas to one and all! I adore his rosy cheeks and vintage-style attire. There's so much to love in this darling holiday collection and I do so love it all!
And that's my Merry & Bright holiday house! Thank you so much for stopping by and allowing me to share a bit of holiday inspiration today! I hope you've enjoyed it and until next time, happy holiday crafting!

Really Reasonable Ribbon November Blog Hop!

Hello and happy Tuesday! It's the 13th and that means it's time for the RRR November Blog Hop! If you're already hopping, then you should be arriving to me from KATHY'S amazing blog feeling super inspired by her marvelous creation! If not, head over to the RRR Blog to start the hop!
This month, we are showcasing projects using the gorgeous November Ribbon Club Assortment! It sparkles, it shimmers and it's just perfect for your "all that glitters" creations! Guess what? You could win it! Just comment on each of the blogs along the hop including the RRR blog for your chance to win this Holiday Shimmer Assortment!
I like to try to create a project that features as many of the ribbons from the assortment as possible. This time I made a magical Sugarplum Fairy with a shimmering ribbon skirt using all the ribbons! I've made one of these girls once before and she was a big hit. I loved the pretty pinks and purples in the November Ribbon Club Assortment, and it made me think of the Sugarplum Fairy from the Nutcracker. Just the colors and shimmery goodness of these yummy ribbons convinced me to make one more ribbon skirt girl. Only this time, she's a magical holiday fairy and she's here to wish you and a very sweet and sparkling Christmas season! 
The bodice is covered with decadent 10x12mm Mixed Pink Tone Rose Buds and Silver Bead Berry Spray Clusters along the collar. Cascading down her skirt are Silver Snowflake Charms attached with Silver Metallic String.
I created one-of-a-kind "wings" for my sugarplum fairy with WOC Silver Spiral Stamens, 3 on each side and bent into an upsweeping wing fashion. 
And that's all for me! I hope you like my sugarplum fairy girl and feel inspired to create something pretty with ribbons today! Your next stop on the hop is SHEILA! Have a great day--happy hopping and happy crafting!

Vintage Halloween Altered Cupcake Tin

Hi friends and happy Friday! I'm up at the Simple Stories Blog today sharing my latest altered Simple Stories project with you! Have you ever altered a cupcake tin? I've been wanting to for quite sometime now and I finally did it! I love how this cute little piece turned out and it's just in time for Halloween too! If you haven't gotten your crafty hands on the darling new Simple Vintage Halloween Collection yet, I sure hope you'll want to after seeing this spooktacular showcase!
There's a few different choices when it comes to cupcake tins. Depending on what your project is, you can get a 6, 12 or even a 24 slot tin. The more slots, the smaller they are. For this project, I chose to alter a 6 slot tin. First, spray paint cupcake tin in black inside and out. Let dry, spray paint 2nd layer and let dry again. Next, line inside of each slot with black lace trim. Now our tin is ready to begin decorating! The circle die cuts in the Bits & Pieces are a perfect fit to adhere to the wall of each slot.
Create a main title and build the scene adorable images from the 6x12 Chipboard and Combo Stickers. The smaller images from 4x6 Stickers are just right for the insides of the cupcake slots. Add dimension to some pieces with 3D Foam Squares.

Embellish with extra accents like ribbon, sequins, bling trim, enamel dots, etc. The imagination is the limit! I couldn't help but fill in just about every nook and cranny of my cupcake tin! So. Much. Fun.
Don't forget that there's much more to this darling and festive collection! The 12x12 Collection Kit and 3 Pack Washi Tape is a must-have for any Halloween-loving crafter or planner! For me, another perk to this collection is that it's not too scary or creepy. It's much more on the cute and sweet side, which I love. It's a great collection for the young and the young at heart! I think this will be a super cute addition to this years Halloween d├ęcor!
And that's all for me! Thank you so much for stopping by and allowing me to share my project with you today! I've enjoyed it so much and I hope you have been inspired to create something fabulous with the Simple Vintage Halloween Collection too! Until next time, happy crafting!
