Visions of Sugarplums 2017 Day Three

It's the last day of Visions of Sugarplums!  So glad you've hopped with us.  I'll be announcing the winners on Sunday, December 10th.  So be sure to come back to see if you've won!

A big thank you to everyone who created such wonderful projects for us to enjoy and to all of you who have sponsored Visions of Sugarplums this year.  I appreciate you all!

I just love sweet little Christmas houses.  I make one almost every year.  Well, probably no almost about it.  I really like them!  What makes this sweet little house is the very pretty papers from Iralamija Shop.  The very suble pink and creme is just gorgeous.  The house was super easy to make because of the dies from Papertrey Ink.

What do you think about the crepe paper fringe?  I think maybe it adds an element of fun. 

This mini album isn't finished yet and I'll share it again when it is.  I'm going to use it for Christmas this year and fill it with pictures of ....(can you guess?)... my granddaughter, Louisa!  She just turned one, so Christmas is going to be a lot of fun!

These adorable postcards are also from Bety's shop, Iralamija.  They are perfect for cards or a mini album like mine. 

Won't it be fun to add Louisa and journaling and more little Christmas goodies?

The cute flair are in my etsy shop.  Starting today through Sunday, December 10th, get 10% off in my shop with the code:  SUGARPLUM.

Next up, a mason jar lid ornament.  I've done several of these, too.  If you like the image, I've got it ready for you to download below to use in one of your Christmas creations.

You can download the girl with reindeer HERE.

Dropbox seems to work differently for different people.  Either right click and save when image appears or click the download button in the top right corner.  If neither method works, email me and I'll send the files to you.

I love Magic Slider Cards and it really is easier with the Lawn Fawn dies.  But I couldn't just leave it at a Magic Slider Card...

I had to make it a Magic Slider meets a Shaker Card!

It's just so fun!  Not only is the color revealed when you pull the tab, but it's a shaker card, too!

And a look at the inside.  Love that sweet little unicorn!

How about a video on how to turn the Magic Slider into  a "Magic Slider+Shaker"?  I'll do one next week and get it posted.  Come back for that!  I'm heading to Savannah to see Louisa, so I'll have to do it when I get back.  

Okay, let's talk prizes!
