365 Projects in 365 Days

My previous New Year's resolution was to be creative everyday with my Cricut, but since I've started my blog 2 years ago I have come across so many new exciting things like stamps, digi stamps, non-Cricut projects using chipboard, stickers, etc. and now my addition is the Silhouette Cameo. I will be posting many pictures and tutorials of all my projects. I will be making scrapbook layouts, cards, tags, embellishments and altered items. My goal is to create 365 projects in 365 days.

#210 Sandy Claus Long Card

Hi everyone! I know it's a lot later then my normal posting time, but I just had to enter the Simply Betty Facebook challenge. The challenge is to use any Christmas stamp from Simply Betty Stamps. I totally forgot that I had this awesome freebie from last December that I've never used yet.... what's wrong with me?? I LOVE this stamp so much!!

I colored Sandy Claus with my Prismacolor pencils, and added a spiderweb border with my MS punch and bling. The sentiment is from Crafty Sprouts "Have a cool Yule" (Christmas stamps). I also added some tiny bats and Stickles to the white parts. This card is very long it measures 4 x 8.5 inches and fits perfectly in a long business envelope.


Here's a link to Crafty Sprouts stamps!
