Happy Tuesday!  I can’t believe it’s been so long since I’ve posted anything here.  Yes, I can!  I’ve been decorating, crafting with Kate, and simply being lazy.  Oh!  I’ve also been working on projects that I can’t show you yet . . . if you know what I mean.

I have a couple of things today to let you know about.  First, Graphic 45 is having a Holiday Gift Tag Challenge.  It’s the December challenge and you have until December 15th to take part.  Click on the link, Holiday Gift Tag Challenge, and you can read all about it.

The next item . . . one of my shadowboxes is being showcased on the Graphic 45 Blog today.   Please hop over there and check out the other projects . . . which are absolutely fabulous and so darn creative!


The frame is from Darcie’s and is the medium shadowbox.  A scene from Graphic 45 Christmas Emporium Collection, Christmas Emporium, was die cut with Spellbinders™ Grand Labels One then placed on the bottom layer.


To add dimension, the book and Santa’s upper body were cut out separately and mounted over the bottom layer with 3D Foam Squares.  After building up the frame, iridescent snow flake sprinkles were added before adding the Plexiglas.  The top layer of the frame was covered with Happy Holidays from the collection and then added to finish the frame.


The poinsettia was die cut/embossed from Under the Mistletoe with Spellbinders Layered Poinsettia.  The middle was made with small pearl beads covered with Lemonade Alcohol Ink.


The tree is from Want2Scrap that was covered with Peeled Paint Distress Stain then covered with Peeled Paint Distress Stickles.  The stamp is from Special Delivery that was distressed then sponged with Antique Linen.  The star at the top of the tree began as clear, but was covered in Lemonade Alcohol Ink.

I guess that’s all for today.  Thanks for stopping by and remember . . . life is short, embrace the adventures of the day!

  1. This is really darling, Sherry!! I had to zoom in on the photo..I couldn’t figure what in the heck was in front of Santa!! Then when I zoomed in, I found it was a feather quill, pen, whateva 🙂 Adorable! I am not going to let myself start getting the Spellbinder Grand Labels..I am not a rich lady and I must keep that in mind. (Control yourself, control yourself) 🙂 But, I do like seeing all the wonderful stuff people do with them. Nice Job! Have a Wonderful Day!!

  2. I’ve been wondering about you girl! Glad to see you post! This is very nice, I love the image and your poinsettia is so gorgeous!

  3. Adorable Sherry! Love the glitter sparkle! 🙂

  4. Love the image and how you brought dimension to it, that stamp above the tree is cool too, wonderful project!

  5. Great projects Sherry! We’re working with the same papers!!!! Ha!

  6. Sherry, your projects are just so fabulous. I love this one, but the ones that you make with the craft wood trims are still my favorite. I know you said that you get those wood trims specially ordered thru Michaels, but our Michaels here in San Diego just look at me dumb-founded when I inquired about them. I have tried googleing them and have still come up empty handed. I haven’t given up thou. If you have any suggestions I would definitely appreciate it. Thanks for sharing all you wonderful projects. Just love’em. Happy Holidays.

  7. When you make something you put your all into it and it’s fabulous! I should be putting the blog aside to get some decorating done, I suppose. Got the lights up, at least.

  8. Wonderful project, Adorable image, and the dimension makes it so alive..
