Make it Monday #94 - Glitter Detail

Hello everyone! Hope that the holiday season is starting out wonderfully for everyone. Work has been increasingly hectic lately (I work thurs-sun as a home health nurse) which tends to drain me quite a bit. On the flip side, I'm participating as a Secret Santa for work, and the coworker I am secret santa-ing for is a amazing and very nice woman. So needless to say, I am super excited to put together some crafty goodies that she'll really get a kick out of (I plan to spoil her just a whee bit! ^_~).

Favor it Box #8 is the first of the favor it boxes I've purchased, and it is soooo much fun! It's a little bit cumbersome how much space on the paper the tail die cuts take up, so it's a necessity to start with a fresh sheet of paper for each die cut. But other than that, it came together so quickly and the end result is pretty exciting. :D

 I finally. . . FINALLY bought the Friendship Jar set from PTI, as well as the Holiday Fillers. This family of stamps has been making its way and and out of my shopping cart for months now, always deleted in favor of something from the new release. Now that I have it though, I am SO glad I bought it! The sentiments, the homespun feel of it all--le sigh--I adore it. So excited. I definitely plan on getting the rest of the serious. Mmmhmm.

The way that this project involves this MIM strategy is that the glittered lace die strip is more of an accent or detail, just as Erin had described in her video. For me, I usually have glitter take front and center stage ('cuz it's gorge!) But I placed the strip in a way that it adds that extra pop, but is a supporting detail. 

Have a great week everyone! Go grab some eggnog or hot cocoa and ring in the season! =)


  1. I love it! Fun colors and love where you put the glitter:)

  2. Beautiful! I LOVE the way you used the cracker die, and all your little details and layers are lovely. I was like you... the Friendship Jar was on and off the list until I finally broke down and got it... I LOVE the sentiments, and use them SO often!!!

  3. Your cracker is really cute love the glittered die cut going around it. Look forward to seeing your creations with the Friendship jar fillers I have all of these as they are so cute but have hardly used them :-(
