Clock and Time Book

It is time to think about New Year’s Crafts and Journals. What will you keep note of this past year?  Cyndi of Lovely Lula Here. I created a book with the New Year in mind. I will use this as a journaling book for the next few weeks as I write and doodle about 2011.

I used my Cuttlebug and the Clockworks Embossing Folders to pull the details of this journaling book together. Once it is complete I will bind it on my YourStory. Here’s to the New Year.

Happy crafting xoxo Cyndi aka Lovely Lula

Snow Globe

Cyndi of Lovely Lula Here. I have been going snow globe crazy this year! I have made several of them and there are more lined up awaiting my attention. Visit Lovely Lula to see other snow globes I’ve made. For this one I picked up a snow globe ready form from Urban Outfitter. For the inside design I cut the snow monster out of the Imagine Cartridge called Santas Village. I used the Winter Lace cartridge for the snow flakes and cut it out of white paper. The package was from a sticker set I had laying around. I think this guy is the cutest thing!

Happy Holiday and Happy Crafting xoxo Cyndi aka Lovely Lula

Christmas Countdown

Cyndi of Lovely Lula Here. I know I should be putting up a post about Thanksgiving this week but I am just so excited about Christmas this year I am just gonna skip right on over it and get the countdown going! I created the “Days til’ Christmas” sign using the Winter Frolic Cartridge for the font out of silver vinyl and Winter Lace cartridge for the snow flakes out of white paper. The stripes of green paper and the white snow flakes are all Bazzill Basics.



The area to write the days on is a large circle of chalk board vinyl and we’ll count the days down with chalk.

Snow Days Cartridge Gift Wrap

Cyndi of Lovely Lula here and I am excited to show this project I made using today’s Hello Thursday Cartridge called Snow Days that I paired with vintage holiday wrapping paper.

I first wrapped a plain white box top that I picked up at a paper supply store, with red holiday ribbon to give it more texture. I then used the Snow Days cart to cut a cute little bundled up kid shape out of the vintage paper. I cut several of them and glued them to the box.

I also made a coordinating card because really how could I resist?
