IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR CRAFTER'S CASTLE CHALLENGE CLICK HERE

I recently lost a file on my computer that had everyone's addresses and birthdays and I was devestated!  So I have decided it's time to make a REAL address book.

It's actually TWO address books in ONE!
I have made a video tutorial that you can watch by
And I am giving you this FREE download for the inserts

Click on the picture to enlarge, then right click and chose Save Image As.....it will save as a JPG image that you can print full page.  I tried adding a PDF here but couldn't figure out how to add it to the blog post, but it will work just fine as a JPG (photo).

I used papers and dies from InLoveArts and have this DISCOUNT CODE for you, G-6749, use it to get 15% off your order, PLUS you get FREE SHIPPING on orders over $25

Vintage Christmas Cards with Taylormadecards4u Printables

If you are looking for Crafter's Castle Challenge

There are so many possibilities for Christmas cards and one of my favorites is the Vintage look.  Taylormadecards4u has a wonderful variety of vintage images in printable/digital format so you can use them over and over again.  For these cards I chose to use the "12 Christmas Carol Music Sheets" and the "Night Before Christmas Journal Cards" (see product images below).  You may notice these are the same sets I used a couple weeks ago that I adhered to candles.  I just wanted to show that there is more than one way to use these sets, and I'm sure you will come up with your own ideas.






For a better look and more details you can watch my video by clicking HERE

Here are the sets I used from Taylormadecards4u...

12 Christmas Carol Music Sheets

Night Before Christmas Journal Cards

Don't forget to check out my video to learn more about how I made these beautiful vintage cards...

Thanks for stopping by and...
HAPPY CRAFTING!!!

DIY Photo Candles

Christmas is quickly approaching and time to start thinking about Christmas decor and gifts.  Candles with pictures on them, whether they are photos or other images, always make beautiful Christmas decor and gifts.  They are so easy to make and I have a video tutorial that will walk you through the process.
This is my design team project for Taylormadecards4u
To see more projects by the design team please stop by
Taylormadecards4u Blog

To watch my video tutorial CLICK HERE

To do this process you will need pillar candles (whatever size you like), tissue paper, a printer, wax paper, and a heat gun.

The images I used on the candles you see above and in my tutorial are from Taylormadecards4u.


The tall candle has one of the Christmas carols from the 12 Christmas Carol Music Sheets digital set.

The shorter candle has a wonderful vintage image from the Night Before Christmas Journal Cards digital set
