i should finish project said no one ever craft meme-minby Richelle Naegle

Christmas is literally just around the corner, and I haven’t really had any time to craft.

If you’re looking for a good Christmas-themed paper collection, check these options out:

Snow Cute Christmas Card

Here is my card. It was made using the Silhouette CAMEO, and the image is from the Silhouette Store (it’s called Rudy with Snowman Winter). The card dimensions are 4″ x 6″, and perfect for sending to one of my friends who loves the snow. I think that this card turned out snow cute!

Thanksgiving is less than a week away, and I wanted to make a couple of fun Thanksgiving Crafts this year, so I started with these adorable turkeys.

Pilgrim Turkey Cards

I made these cute turkeys originally for a scrapbook layout I was working on, but when they came together, I thought they would make the most adorable cards. I felt compelled to switch up my crafting plan. The cards stand about 4.5″ tall and were cut out using the Cricut Explore Air 2, using mostly colored cardstock.

Harry Potter-Themed Party Decor

9-3/4 platform party decor projectDid you know that CraftDirect is an international company? Chi Lozano is one of our employees in the Philippines, and she happens to be a savvy paper crafter. She used her electronic die-cutting machine to make a Harry Potter-themed birthday party for her 1-year old son. When she showed us her work, we loved it so much we asked her to take our readers on this adventure. Enjoy:

Welcome to Hogwarts

This Harry Potter inspired party-themed celebration is nothing short of magical. And there’s no better way to send your guests off to the wizarding world than by escorting them onto the platform 9 ¾ platform to the Hogwarts Express!
