Welcome, my crafty friends. I hope that you had a wonderful Christmas and enjoyed every moment of your day. Today I want to share some fun and inspiring projects with you. I wish you all a happy and productive day with lots of time for you to be creative!
As the new year approaches, it is a good time to commit to pulling out your favorite photos and scrapbooking them into beautiful layouts. I always recommend to start with today; then you can work backwards to get them into layouts and not feel overwhelmed. Before you know it, you will have so many layouts completed!
I just love this beautiful layout created by Keren Tamir. This is one of those perfect designs you can adapt to fit to any occasion. Your eye is drawn to the photo even though there are a lot of beautiful details and dimension to this layout. Be sure to pop on over to her blog Expressing from my Heart and Soul to find many more of her sensational projects. You are sure to be inspired by Keren and I highly recommend you to stop by often to see her latest projects.
It is that time of the year here in Utah when we receive lots of snow. This adorable card says it all: “Let It Snow!” Doesn’t this make you want to get on your warm clothing and take a fun winter’s walk?
This fun winter card was found on Paper Suite and was created by a very talented lady, Ashley Newell. Make someone’s January and mail one of your handmade treasures! Everyone loves to receive a card in their mail box on a cold winter day.
This fun card is a wonderful way to say “thank you” for that special Christmas gift you received, or for a nice little New Years gift! This is so cute! What a great card to give on a cold winter day. I am always looking for ways to give gift cards; this would be perfect for that as well.

Decorating shipping palates is the latest rage right now. I have seen so many fun decorated holiday palates on front porches. Today I want to share with you a fun project using a mini palate for a home décor piece. These come in different sizes, so the possibilities are really endless to mix and match them.
Ginny created an vintage easel-style display that would be so fun to have in your home. What a great addition to your mantel, shelf, or even an end table. There is so much potential for creating with these mini palettes. Click here and I will escort you on over to Polly’s Paper Studio where you will find a snapguide tutorial. Ginny Nemchak is so amazing, so be sure to visit her blog for more of her fun and creative projects. The inspiration from her is never-ending!
What could taste better that a twice-baked Italian biscotti cookie with a cup of tea, coffee, or hot chocolate on a cold winter day? Your mornings can’t get any better than this! Just make sure you bake enough of these tasty treats for everyone to enjoy!
There are so many different kinds, but I have to say that my favorite is the Cranberry Pistachio. Click here for this fabulous recipe. You may want to spend some time at Sweet & Savory – you’ll find so many delicious recipes from Shinee. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do. Happy baking!
