Winter Magpie

Nov 29, 2010

If you are won­der­ing what this title means well it means loads of cre­ative fun as “Win­ter Mag­pie” is the name of the Decem­ber kit at Cocoa Daisy. I am so lucky as I got to play with this kit because I am their Decem­ber Guest Design­er. When Chris­tine asked me I was thrilled. Then as she was telling me about all the won­der­ful prod­ucts she incor­po­rat­ed in the kit I felt it was so ME and could not wait to start cre­at­ing. Her kits are always gor­geous and so inspir­ing.

Here are the projects I cre­at­ed using this kit… 2 lay­outs, a card and a gift card hold­er. I had prod­uct left over to cre­ate more items but these will be in my book (yes Cocoa Daisy is once again one of my book spon­sors) so you are going to have to wait a bit to see these.


This lay­out is of me and my broth­er Richard. Mom and I laugh every sin­gle time we see this pho­to. My expres­sion and arms being crossed just cracks me up.


That lit­tle pho­to was tak­en of me and my mom cel­e­brat­ing my 2nd birth­day. The par­ty hat is cre­at­ed using a page from the My Mind’s Eye Par­ty Glit­tered Chip­board Album that is includ­ed in the kit.


Here is the gift card hold­er I made using the remain­ing page from the chip­board album. I cre­at­ed it so that the recip­i­ent can use it as a keep­sake orna­ment year after year if they would like. I will have a tuto­r­i­al on how I cre­at­ed it on my blog next week if you would like to make one.  Below is a close up of the snowflake rosette. I love how the mica looks on top of the snowflakes.

And here is a Christ­mas card I cre­at­ed. To cre­ate the tree I used a tree die by Sizzix. All I did was cut out three trees, sew them togeth­er up the mid­dle, fold each lay­er upwards, ink the edges, apply Plat­inum Stick­les to the edges and added a strip of self adhe­sive pearls.

And there ya have it … I told you “Win­ter Mag­pie” was full of cre­ative inspi­ra­tion. I would nev­er kid about a thing like that. Don’t for­get about my give away. The dead­line to leave your com­ment is today at mid­night. I will announce the win­ner tomor­row night on Face­book and post the win­ners name on my blog Wednes­day morn­ing.
