Karen Burniston December Challenge Day 2

PIU Christmas front

Everyone is coming for Christmas!  Today my card features all the farm critters (plus Jolly) in true Home for Christmas style.  This 6 x 6 card is big – but so’s the family 🙂

PIU Christmas left front

Brownie is sporting a Santa-stash and glasses.  Cheeper is holding a candy cane.  And Jolly is bringing a present of cheese.  To attach the characters, the bottom layer (Brownie) is flat on the card.  The next layer is (Cheepers) is attached to Brownie.  And then Jolly is up on pop dots.  This gives it looks of dimension without being crazy.

PIU Christmas right front

William is helping with the garland and Snowball is wearing his Santa hat.  All the presents are popped up. The sentiment is from Project Life by Stampin Up Seasonal Snapshot 2015.

PIU Christmas open

Inside, Cocoa the Horse is already home!  The garland  – which is pieces from the wreath in the Sleigh Gift Card die set – surrounds the Agatha Edge at the top.

PIU Christmas open detail

The barn is decorated!  The little candle is the chimney from the House die.  The sentiment is Stampin Up’s Cozy Christmas!

Project Life Ornaments

Project Life Ornament

One of the December Creative Crew challenges on Splitcoast is to use Project Life in any kind of project.  I used the Hello December Accessory Pack, the wooden embellishments to be exact, and created some ornaments or package tie ons.  The first one used the “joy” embellishment.  I painted it white, sprayed it with adhesive and rolled it in Dazzling Diamonds.  When that was dry I attached a fishing line down the middle of the “O” and added a snowflake from the Frosted Sequins with a rhinestone in the center.  Hang it from some Lost Lagoon ribbon with a jingle bell tied to the ribbon with silver ribbon.

I also made one with “Noel.”  Hope you’ll play along with Creative Crew this month.  Use the keyword CCREW1214SF, CreativeCrew, SUO or SUM.  Hugs, Fran

Project Life Thanksgiving

PL Seasonal Snapshots 01

It’s a new month (can you believe it?) and that means new challenges for the Creative Crew at Splitcoast Stampers.  For the Project Life challenge, I made a 12 x 12 Thanksgiving page using the Seasonal Snapshots cards.  The traditional family photo will go in the upper right hand corner block and I can journal to my heart’s content in the journaling block.  You can play along by using the key word CCREW1114FS CreativeCrew SUO.

Project Life Pocket Cards

PL 01 June



This is my June Project Life by Stampin Up card.   I die cut a heart and added strips of the Moonlight Designer Series paper behind it.  Then I stamped the month with Project Life Day to Day.

PL Patriotic

For July, I covered a card with Real Red stripes and added a Star Framelit on the top.  The Real Red stars were stamped with Pictogram Punches.  Rhinestones added some bling!

My Project Life Open House is on September 16th.  Come play with all the great new Memory Keeping products!  Hugs, Fran
