Christmas Crafting - 2018

Every Christmas I try and design two things in paper- a Christmas card and a few ornaments for our tree. Both are done for 2018.

The card is a contemporary pop-up design featuring a mixture of fonts, colors and patterns. It fits into a standard 6" x9" booklet envelope. The cutting file is here. The assembly tutorial including video is here. I hope to design a Happy Birthday version soon.

For ornaments this year I continued working with the cube shadow box theme that I first introduced with a valentine. I designed three for this series including a star, nativity and snowflake. I generally avoid bling but I really liked the touch of glitter on these. I did make an incredible mess in the craft room with the stuff though. I still have sparkles on my clothes.

The cutting files for these are available here. Online assembly tutorial with video is here.

Happy holiday crafting everyone!!!!

2018 Additions to Tea Light Village.

I have been creating buildings for Tea Light Village since 2014, and each year I seem to design 2 more. 2018 is no exception. I have just added a Barber Shop with iconic pole and a Covered Bridge with a horse-drawn sleigh to the store at

Both are great additions to this charming village.

The covered bridge reflects some of the design elements you will find a various bridges around new England. The sleigh comes with driver and a tiny tree for the back.

The barber shop file includes a bench, picket fence, and a pine tree.

Haunted Zig Zag Village

Yes, this is natural extension of my first and second versions of Zig Zag Village. Here is the Haunted Mansion version. It is complete with cats and bats, and pumpkins. Included is a haunted graveyard and outhouse. Pair the card stock mansion with some webbing and orange LED fairy lights and it becomes  spooky, fun Halloween decor.
