Christmas Snowman Card

Christmas Snowman Card
Here is another example of my newest handwriting technique. It takes practice but it's fun to do so hopefully I get better at it! These stickers that I am using are so adorable and I got 6 snowman stickers and 6 penguin stickers for 50 cents so finally a great deal on something so cute. I love deals like this and it's great to do a little crafting shopping after the holidays for all the discounts! I've had to cut back on shopping lately because I've been using a lot of my materials for my Etsy shop that I opened.

Christmas Penguin Card

Christmas Penguin Card
Hello all!

I made this card a few days ago and I think it came out cute! I saw some awesome handwriting techniques on Instagram and thought that I would give it try! It's not perfect but I have become addicted to this technique now. My next few posts will be showing you my work. I also got lucky with the lighting today. Nice and sunny but still cold.

This card wasn't too hard too hard to make. I had to spend a while with the handwriting stuff but the rest was pretty easy.

Simple Christmas Gift Tag

Simple Christmas Gift Tag
Hello all!

Today I would like to show you a very simple Christmas gift tag. Bought a pack of gift tags at Hobby Lobby and used nothing but a pen, string, a flower, and two leaves. It was so easy to make and it looks pretty cute.

My handwriting is not that amazing and lately on Instagram I have been looking at fancy calligraphy and I am so jealous! I wish I had the patience for that. I used to have beautiful handwriting, but not anymore! I think it's because I just do not have the patience.

And, I would like apologize for my photos. They were taken inside and the lighting is just not great. The days are just too dim and my camera does not like that!
