For today's project I wanted to play along with KBD challenges on facebook. The challenge was to create a winter scene using any KaDoodle Bug Design as the focal point. The prize is a free KBD file of your choice ( a GREAT prize!!) I made this shaker card.

I used the Trimming The Tree by KaDoodle Bug Designs for the penguin, the tree and all the ornaments. Is he cute or what?!?! I cut them out in the original size. For the globe itself I used one of Bird's free Christmas files Snowglobe Digital Cutting File by Bird . I re sized the globe to be 10.93 so that I could fit everything inside. I cut 2 of the inner rings out of foam paper and glued them together so my snowflakes would have room to move. I used the plastic from an old cricut mat for the front and a snow flake punch for the snowflakes. I punched some of the snowflakes out of glitter paper and some out of plain white. This was so much fun to make and I think I will play along with this group when ever I have the time.

Denim Christmas Stocking

           I know it has been a long time since I have posted anything. I just had a baby and things have been a little crazy around here. I have been crafting just have not had time to make a post. Today while the baby was napping I decided to add to my stocking collection by making one of my own.

            I traced one of my already made stockings and then added 1/4 of an inch for the seam allowance. For the other side I flipped the material over and did the same. Then I sewed the two sides together with my sewing machine. I hot glued the pocket on ( the baby woke up and I was in a hurry to finish up) you could hand sew it if you want. I then folded the top down and hand sewed a belt loop to hand it from.
