Samantha’s Penguin Christmas at the Beach

We are looking for fun and festive holiday projects for our Challenge 128 – Christmas in July! Time to get a jump on your holiday crafting and enter the challenge before Sunday, July 17 at 11:59PM ET. We can’t wait to see how this challenge inspires you!

Samantha takes the holiday fun to the beach in a whimsical card featuring Penguin Party and Christmas Fishes!

The penguins are celebrating a festive holiday on the beach! Samantha built this happy scene with Stitched Hillside Backdrop: Landscape and Simple Stitched Wavy Borders. Instead of snowy details she colored the hills, igloo and snowman in sandy colors and replaced the traditional Christmas tree with one made of seaweed from Christmas Fishes. Then she added the sentiment from Joy to the Woods to finish this Christmas in July design!

Thank you for this delightfully whimsical inspiration, Samantha! It’s such a fun idea!


Let it Snow with Samantha!

It’s the last weekend for this challenge! Make the Sentiment the Star and share your project HERE! This challenge will be open until Sunday November 14th at 11:59PM ET.

Samantha‘s beautiful pastel design is filled with lots of frosty fun! She started with a Stitched Hillside Backdrop: Landscape in Pixie Dust Sparkle. This is layered over a Watercolor Wishes Rainbow panel, how pretty is that purple sky!

The Giant Let It Snow is cut from Shimmer cardstock and layered Peacock as a shadow. She arranged the giant greeting with some cute Yeti or Not critters, finishing the bottom edge with a Snowflake Border.

Thank you so much for sharing this special inspiration with us today, Samantha!


Have a wonderful weekend! Happy crafting!

Samantha’s Snowy Den Sweet Den Scene

Woohoo! We are so excited, our new Valentine 2021 Release is in the shop at and at your favorite crafty stores!

Hey everyone, Samantha here with a fun Christmas themed card that is inspired by the current Color Inspiration challenge. I love these types of challenges so much because it allows you to use color palettes that you may not typically choose. The palette for the challenge is so perfect for winter and the holiday season. 

I created a snowy scene with the adorable bears from the Den Sweet Den stamp set. They are relaxing and enjoying their time together as a family. A freshly baked plate of cookies are the perfect treat to enjoy while passing time before they can open their gifts. 

The Sparkle Pixie Dust Cardstock adds a sense of magic to the scene with the glittery texture and shimmer. I love adding the sparkle cardstocks to my projects because it just brings everything to life and enhances it.   

You still have time to enter the Color Inspiration challenge. The challenge runs through Sunday, December 20th 11:59 EST.  We look forward to seeing what you create! 

Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful day!
