Blue Christmas

I love today's blog post! Maybe because I am just LOVING the holidays this year! I think I have needed everything that the holiday brings. Peace, people you love, glitter :) All of the projects that I am sharing today have BLUE in them! If you look at our Holiday Stack Line Up, it really is full of blue accents. So fun!


This first project uses Arctic Wishes Stack which is out at Jo-Ann Stores right now!


I love these cards and card box that DT Member Dayna Sabrina created. Handmade cards make such a great holiday gift!


Here is one of the cards in the box. Love that cute little Rudolph nose :) See more of Dayna Sabrina's project HERE.


This next project features the Crafty Christmas Stack from Michaels Stores. Love the vibrant prints on the Kraft Paper. The colors seem extra bright on this stack.


DT Stack-a-holic Hilde used it to make the cutest layout! Her little boy, Thomas, is the cutest. And the fun little Santa from the stack is darling!


Isn't he darling?? See more views of Hilde's layout HERE.


And the last project uses the awesome Winter Holiday Stack also at Michaels.


DT Member Sara made this adorable holiday card for a friend. This stack has such great colors and you can see that in this card. Love how she included Blue Moon Beads to show her reindeer flying! Clever, Sara :) See more of her card HERE.

See?! Blue fits right into Christmas! Check out these stacks that are in stores now!

DT Spotlight: Tessa Buys

Happy Thanksgiving Eve, everyone! Today I am trying to cram in LOTS so I can really, really enjoy my Thanksgiving weekend. Which means responding to emails and cleaning up the inbox, finishing up a few 1/2 finished projects on my desk. Opening up some boxes that have been sitting by my front door a couple days :) 

But before I get to all of that, I want to feature one of our Design Team Stack-a-holics because I am THANKFUL for them!!! They have made the content of my blog AMAZING and have helped me any time I need it. They are always willing to overnight anything I need when we are in a bind. I hope they know how thankful I am for all of them!

Today our spotlight is on Miss Tessa Buys! You will no doubt LOVE her projects and her story :)


Tessa's Fabulous Blog can be found HERE!


Her sweet words from her submission this summer. Tessa is a total sweetheart!

My name is Tessa Buys and I have a very special spot in my scrappy heart for DCWV. Back in 1999 when I started scrapbooking, DCWV stacks were my stash builders! I loved collecting them, and most of all, creating with them. As the years have passed my devotion has not waned, as the several feet of stacks in my paper closet will attest to! I love to paper craft, especially layouts. However, I also love to make cards, home decor, altered art, and jewelry. I've been published in Creating Keepsakes, Paper Crafts, several Create: Idea books, Scrap 365 and Greencraft. I'm active in the online scrapbooking community and love to share and teach. I would love to be a part of the DCWV design team so that I could share my enthusiasm for DCWV and passion for papercrafting with an even wider audience. I can bring a variety of mediums to the table, I can share my work through good photography, I have experience with video classes and tutorials, I always put out my very best work for the manufacturers I design for, and I work very well with schedules and team members. I would be ecstatic beyond words to be given the opportunity to do my crafty best for DCWV!


Birthday Card / Celebrations Stack


Paper Flower Bouquet / Lemon Flower Stack


Teach Layout / Mariposa Stack


Fabric Flower Necklace / Blue Moon Beads

Tessa blows me away with everything that she creates. Plus she is a fabulous, darling Mama of BOYS which I can relate to! Thank you, Tessa, for all that you do for me and our DCWV Family!

Have a wonderful day!

I wanted to share some fun fall cards with you. Because after this week....we will be in complete HOLIDAY mode! And I just can't wait :) This card made by DT Member Karen Hanson is using the Wild Splendor Stack. I love how the flowers pop off of that stripe print.


And the stitching and ribbon are a perfect finishing touch. You can see more of Karen's card on her blog HERE


DT Stack-a-holic Karla Der made this fun card. She has a great tutorial on how to make it on her blog post HERE. It is unique and uses my favorite tool, the Scor-Pal!


Here is a look at the inside of the card--just waiting for a sweet message.


And I love DT Member Jan's Java card! The heart actually has coffee embossed into it for a great smell! How clever. And the Blue Moon Beads are a great finishing touch.


Love beads as accents on cards! See how Jan used the coffee and embossing powder HERE.

I hope you all have a great Monday! Thanks for stopping by!
