Card 1 is an A2 size card, I cut the gold glitter paper to 4 1/4 X 5 1/5 and a piece of the pattern paper to 3 X 5 1/2 inches. I adhered the glitter paper to the card base and then centered the pattern paper and adhered it. I used glue dots to adhere the tag so the person receiving it could use if they want!
Card 2 is an A2 size card and I cut a piece of pattern paper to 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 inches and adhered it to the card base. I cut a piece of silver glitter paper cut to 4 1/2 X 3 inches. I used my cropadile on the front two ends of the card and glitter paper, then I centered the glitter paper and adhered it to the panel. I added the tag on to the glitter paper and that’s it!
Card 3 is an A2 size card and I cut two panels from the pattern paper to about 1 9/16 inch and a piece of the silver glitter paper to 1 1/8 inch. After I adhered all the panels, I added a tag to the inside of the card and that finished that one up.
For my final card I cut a panel from the pattern paper to 4 X 5 1/4 inches to leave a border around the A2 size card. I adhered the tag to a scalloped rectangle that I cut out with a die that was just a little longer than the tags and slightly wider. I added the rectangle piece a little off center on the card.
That’s it for me today! Be sure to check out Scrapping for Less for all the sales!
To create this card I started with an A2 size cardbase or 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 inches. I used Neenah Solar White 110lb cardstock. I stamped the images I wanted to use with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored them with copic markers. I used my Scan N Cut to cut the images out.
I cut the glitter paper for the front panel to 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 inches and cut out a 3 1/4 inch circle towards the top center of the card and then cut out another circle from white card stock with a 3 1/2 inch die.
I adhered all of the tree images to the 3 1/2 inch circle panel and popped the mouse images up with some foam dots. I adhered the 3 1/2 inch circle to the top of the card base and then adhered the glitter paper to the card base lining up the circles. I stamped the sentient “Cold Hands” from Hero Arts Ink in Moss on a white strip of card stock. I cut the banner down to 4 1/4 X 3/4 inches and adhered it towards the bottom of the card with some foam tape.
To finish it off I stamped on the inside of the card the sentiment “Warm Heart”, as well as, the image of the mittens with the string of them creating a heart. I colored in the mittens with copic markers.

Good Morning all my Crafty Friends! For our introductory paragraph how about a history lesson on the 4 elements of our kit? As we delve into Myths and Legends this month let’s take a closer look at these creatures.
According to Wikipedia on Nessie:
n Scottish folklore, the Loch Ness Monster or Nessie is a creature said to inhabit Loch Ness in the Scottish Highlands. It is often described as large in size with a long neck and one or more humps protruding from the water. Popular interest and belief in the creature has varied since it was brought to worldwide attention in 1933. Evidence of its existence is anecdotal, with a few disputed photographs and sonar readings. The scientific community regards the Loch Ness Monster as a phenomenon without biological basis, explaining sightings as hoaxes, wishful thinking, and the misidentification of mundane objects.
According to the Ancient History Encyclopedia on the legendary Pegasus:
Pegasus (or Pegasos) is a winged-horse from Greek mythology which was fathered by Poseidon and was born from the severed neck of the gorgon Medusa, slain by Perseus.
Most of us can’t see fairies. They live in a parallel universe called the “realm of the fey.” According to legend, fairies went into hiding to avoid us because … well, we invaded their lands, so what else could they do?
As we modernized the world with electricity, built roads and cities, and cut down trees, the fairies were forced to “go underground” and hide in caves, burrows, underwater fortresses, and finally into the spirit world.
According to Wikipedia on Gnomes:
A gnome /noʊm/ is a diminutive spirit in Renaissance magic and alchemy, first introduced by Paracelsus in the 16th century and later adopted by more recent authors including those of modern fantasy literature. Its characteristics have been reinterpreted to suit the needs of various story tellers, but it is typically said to be a small humanoid that lives underground.

Hello, it’s Stacy up on the Scrapping for Less blog today with a sneak peek of the new May Flavor of the Month Card Kit that is to be revealed this Saturday, May 25th.
I used items from the Banana Split extra pack of goodies. I colored in the embossed panel with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. I stamped the sentiment from the stamp set included in the Banana Split goodie pack. A little bit of hot pink glitter from the same goodie pack added that bit of sparkle the otherwise simple card needed.
I can’t wait for you to see the card kit this month. To insure you have a kit with your name on it be sure to sign up for a subscription prior to the reveal.
Thanks for visiting and I hope to see you this Saturday!
Let’s “Perk Up and Start the New Year” with our January Flavor of the Month kit.
I have a little story to tell…I never drank coffee until I retired about 6 years ago from teaching school…because who wants a cold cup of what is supposed to be hot coffee? So now…with my wonderful flavored creamer I enjoy a cup of coffee every morning and I especially love drinking my coffee while watching crafty videos on YouTube…so sit back and take a look at our Coffee themed FOTM blog hop this month. ~Teresa

Hi Everyone, it’s Stacy here from Craftaholicmomma up on the Scrapping for Less blog. Today I have lots to share with you. In fact I have 30 cards to share with you. I was able to get back into my groove of obliterating the card kits to see how many cards I could get from it. I was “Up North” (northern Minnesota) on vacation when I had a chance to play with this kit. I was only able to bring a small amount of supplies so I was not able to use any of the dies or embossing folder as I didn’t want to lug my heavy big shot with me. I did bring my Brother Scan N Cut as I thought I would have more versatility with that.
So while my husband, my father in law and my nephew were out on the lake fishing every night, I sat at the table and crafted, making cards. I hope you like them and find inspiration.
