The NBC card is so clever! Love the ball ornaments for eyes and the reindeer for the smile. I was coming up with a blank when I tried to come up with a design for that theme, so I'm really, really impressed with sheridanLA's design!

As for the paper behind the snowflake cards I made, it's just plain kraft paper that I ran through my Cuttlebug. The embossing folder is also by Cuttlebug, is the A2 size (approximately 4" x 6"), and has a woodgrain design. If you'd like to have some for your own crafting purposes just drop me a pm.

Photo dump! A Nightmare Before Christmas mini-wall hanging I made for a swap and a floral arrangement I made for a church party.

Next up, some crafts I made at a Stampin' Up convention in October.

And finally, a Santa necklace I started earlier this fall but just finished.

I think I have that same pre-quilted Xmas stocking panel. Maybe I need to pull it out and finish both stockings. I had the matching tree skirt panel but actually managed to get it made a few years ago. Yeah!

I received these gorgeous cards and tags from flygirl88. It's hard to tell but everything is embossed with metallic embossing powders. Simple but so elegant! Definitely my favorite style. And since I got some snowflake tags of my own,  I don't have to be jealous of the ones Smashu received.  Grin

These wonderful cards and tags were from smashu. All the designs are her own creation. She's such a talented artist. I especially enjoyed the penguin ones. So cute to use gift wrapped fish as the background for the penguin couple! I thought the gift tags were made on thin wood until I looked at the edge of one. They're so firm; it came as a real surprise to see they were corregated cardboard.

Thanks! It's going to be hard to let any of these go.

I wish I could find a better flexible quick dry adhesive. Super glues are too stiff. I use Loctite gel. Anyone know something better? Currently I am gluing plastic buttons/beads to cloth.


I've started using Tombow Mono Liquid Glue, Multi variety (green top and bottom) for most of my glue projects. It dries quickly but not instantly and, thus far, has held everything I've tried it on. The container has a fine tip on top and a broad chisel tip on bottom, so it works well for very small as well as large projects and the chisel tip also acts as a glue spreader.

What size fabric pieces do you need? I might be able to help you out. My quilt fabric stash is getting smaller thanks to the Quilt Block Swaps on here, but I still have a ton that I'm willing to share.

I also repainted the inside of the house, put a new coat of tint on furniture or repainted it, fixed the hardwood floors... I really enjoy the home more now but I have too many crafting projects started and waiting for me to finish them. Maybe trying to get to 50 will help me. Not sure though, I might do Christmas crafting instead.

I think all of those should count. After all, the craftalong says 50 PROJECTS not 50 crafts. And Christmas crafts definitely count towards the total!

So sorry for the loss of your uncle. Hope the art pieces bring a measure of comfort to your family.

Smashu, those cards and tags are wonderful! I especially like the tree card and the filaments on the Christmas lights. Sometimes it's the simplest things that take a piece from routine to outstanding and you definitely have the knack for seeing what a small change can do.  Cheesy

I was stalking the gallery since I didn't have time to join this round, but must have hit the 'unsubscribe to notifications' at some point earlier this month - - 10 pages and most of the block postings to catch up with. Wow! You've all been really busy. Love the Disney villains and the schizo chickens! So many pretty blocks with new patterns that I'm going to have to try.

Cut out the anxiety issues, my friends! We all have different talents, different resources, different skill levels. Use what you have. Do what you like. I guarantee we'll love each others' offerings simply because that's the way we are here on Craftster. We learn from one another (and from YouTube  Grin). Our art changes as our experience grows. Put a paint brush in my hand and I swear a kindergartener's work would look better. On the other hand, give me some fabric, some yarn, or some paper and I can make some pretty nice things. It all just reflects our experiences. Have fun! Try something new! I've never seen anyone make ugly comments about another person's work. Think we'd send them Boo's if they did. I learn so much from each of you and I hope that never changes.
