Hello CE friends!! It’s already time for another challenge and the last one of the year. I can”t believe it’s December already. The year sure did fly by. This year has been quite the challenge…seemed like non stop machine issues, we had a few fires to put out, replacement parts, maintenance and we were even able to purchase a new machine. I have to admit it’s been an exhausting year. I really didn’t realize what we were truly in for in this type of business. Being small we do and maintaining all aspects is time consuming..designing, programming, machine tech, manufacturing , packaging.. etc…we wear a lot of pants. It has been an eye opening year and I hope next year runs much more smoothly. Enough business talk….
I want to thank all of our loyal friends, followers, DT members for all your support during the year. We wouldn’t be here without ya’ll. A huge heartfelt thank you to all and warm squishy hugs!!

Hello! It’s Marci here today with memories of Christmas 2017! My grandsons, Brian & Talan were so excited for Pop Pop and I to open our present from them (adorable photos of them in a cute frame)… Hoping you have a little time during this hectic month to join this month’s challenge! CREATIVE EMBELLISHMENTS PRODUCTS USED: Stars: I used Tim Holtz picket fence distress paint to color the wood veneer stars. Star Stencil: I used texture past to place sporadic stars from this stencil. Holly Jolly Flair: I placed one flair on the Santa/Sleigh (left natural!) and another next to the word GIFT. NORTH POLE: I used a little white ink on this sign to look like settling snow & ripped cotton below to look like snow too! STAR PIECES: I cut these and used Tim Holtz picket fence distress paint and tucked them to the side of the vertical photo.
Welcome to another month at Creative Embellishments and another new twist. This month was to use inspiration from the photo and add animals to the project. I decided to use a paper collection that had animals in it. I started with the Mitten Mini Album and added a fair number of background work with various stencils and stamps, one of my favourites is the Distress Grid stencil. And I also used the Snowflakes Stencil I got from inspiration form the photo. After the background work was done, it was a matter of putting together small clusters using the Pine Needle Frame and Snowflakes. Lots and lots of supplies used in this project so I made a video of how the album came together. I fun little mini album that can sit out all winter long.
Here is a little video of the creative process.
For this month’s Creative Embellishments challenge, I was inspired to create this winter wonderland layout and used the Reindeer Set for the twist. I added Santa’s Star Sleigh and Pine Trees to create a winter scene. I created my title from the Snow Word Set and Chucky Alphabet Set. I decorated the chipboard with a variety of inks topped with glossy accents, crackle paint, and stickles.
For this month’s challenge, I felt that a Christmas card and tag set were in order. .. especially with the twist of adding an animal to your project. These Jumping Deer are such elegant pieces that I had to use them for this lovely card and tag. Along with the Circle Vine Frame and the bare Christmas Sentiments, my set was finished in no time. My chipboard was stained with walnut ink and then dabbed with small amounts of aged gold embossing powder. We hope you can find time to play along with us!
Hi everyone! Look at that adorable mood board..so much fun! My layout has some of the Large Snow flake chippys tucked in here and there in the clusters, along with those super fun textured chippy trees. I used a Whimsical Tree and a Pine Tree chippy and finished it all off with a Snow Day Flair. Have fun playing along and I cant wait to see what you make!!!!!!!!
