Let's end the month with a 3D project for ShortCuts. I love making gift boxes especially if they are pretty crafty. I see smaller versions of these with little chocolates inside. I wanted to make it different so I used tealights. I cut circles and flowers out to splip over the top of the tea light just to make it more decorative. "You light up my life" was printed on a NoteCut 1 from ShortCuts, today is the last day you can download it for free!! It's really great to have this NoteCut as a digital file because I can put digital stamps or word are on it and print it out as one object, or many times. (depends on how many you want).
In case you want to know how to make this I've included a tutorial for you. Have fun!
Supplies:NoteCut1 and clear sheet (cover)-ShortCuts, pattern paper-Making Memories , ribbon-Michaels, Flower stamp-CTMH

Here's my first card using CC Designs. I had to put this little guy on a ShortCuts Clear Card cause he is just to cute to not to stand alone.
Then I decided to make a background and see what that will look like. I chalked the cloud background. I didn't look cartoony enough for me so I cut out some fluffy clouds. I know it's a cloud overload but when you see the card closed I think you'll like it much better.

Well I had to get up and make this card before it vanished like a dream. And it's the first time I made a "spinner" card!! And it works!! The "track" I made for the snowflake is in the shape of an "S" on purpose. I thought it would be fitting (s for snowflake) and more decorative since I have a gaping hole on the front of my card.
Here is the card half way down the card. It's hard to see but the top of the track has a little cove cut out so the snowflake will stay at the top until you give it a nudge. Like a little speed bump!
Supplies:large snowflake-Sizzix, Blue snowflake-Branch punch (Martha Stewart), small snowflake (Martha Stewart), 3D foam dots, Gem-K&Company, Cardstock-Kraft (SU), Snowflake stamps (SU), "Merry Christmas"-CTMH, Pennies-Canadian

I think Ian is one busy little boy. You'll find him skateboarding his way down roads and railings, you'll even spot him on his way to a birthday party. But today I found him snowboarding! All I had to do was cut off his wheels and put him in a snow bank. hehehehe. Hope he's not to cold!!Supplies:Skater Ian-The Greeting Farm, Alpha-CTMH, Trees-Stampendous, Snowflakes-Nestabilities.

I thought the cup needed to be more antique looking so I used Crackle Accents (it's a glaze that cracks all on it's own as it dries). It's really cool stuff, easy to use and works perfectly. Only problem is that I do not have the proper ink and so the ink bleed. Ugh! It's so frustrating!
Hope you like it dispite the bleeding!

This is my handsom son Koale. He was out playing last week on a snow day. He was doing flips in a snow bank and yelled for me to come and see his Gymnastics! I of course grabbed my camera.
I change the photo to B&W and cropped it around the NoteCut1 from ShortCuts. Throughout this month you'll see more cards using this shape from all the DT girls of ShortCuts.
