One Sweet Santa

Happy Monday! 

It's nice to be back from a holiday weekend...I may have a bit of a "Thanksgiving Hangover". It's just so fun to have a break from the day to day routine, spend time with loved ones and EAT! Not gonna lie, the food is probably my favorite part ;)

As you can see, my little family had the best Thanksgiving and I hope all of our Craft Smith friends did as well! And now...we can officially be on our way to Christmas and not feel guilty about it! I may have had my tree up for a week...or two! 

Today's inspiration comes from the Craft Smith Timeless Holiday line. This is available at Michaels right now and I know lots of you have already picked it up! When I first flipped through this paper pad, the sweetest Santa caught my eye. When I went to the Craft Smith website and saw his happy face front and center, I couldn't help but smile! I instantly knew that I wanted to use that sweet Santa on a layout of my boys.

I love how this layout turned out. I didn't have to do much to make it cute since the Man in Red is on there! The red paper with the Santa is one piece of paper and the background holly paper is a second piece of paper. I made little trees out of a few other smaller prints and added lace, rhinestones and gold stars as embellishments. For the title, I used a mixture of alphabet stickers and the "Christmas" was cut from a paper from the pad.

Crafting this time of year is always so fun. I hope you stop by Michaels and see this Timeless Holiday line along with the other Craft Smith Holiday paper pads. We will have inspiration from these great lines all month long here on the blog!

Hello to all of my crafty friends!

I don't think anyone knows how excited I am to be writing this blog post and to be back doing what I am so passionate about! When I quit my job in June, I knew that somehow things would work out for me and my little family. As many of you probably know from experience, it's sometimes scary to make a big life change like this. But after the boys went back to school in August, I found the perfect job for me! 

I now work for Craft Smith, a brand new company in the craft industry! In the last few months, I have been busy helping with new products lines, product development, packaging and of course crafting. It feels amazing to work and represent a company that I full heartedly believe in. The owner is one of the best people that I know and my co-workers have already become like family. And the products we are releasing...the PRODUCTS! Wow, let me just say that you will love everything! And I will be here with every release showing you videos, projects and posts of what you need to run off to the store and find. ;) Many of you have already found Craft Smith products at your local Michael Stores and that makes me so happy! We make the cutest paper pads, craft kits, home decor, party decor and tons more. Craft Smith is much more than a scrapbook company, they really embrace the entire world of crafting

Today I get to show you a fun video featuring all of the new Craft Smith Christmas & Holiday paper pads that are out right now at Michaels. I had to hurry and get my video made so I can bust into my paper and start my holiday crafting! I just saw that there are only 6 Fridays until Christmas.
