Stocking Utensil Holders

Now who wouldn't want these at their holiday table?? Love these!!!!

Stocking Utensil Holders

Hi everyone!! Are you in the Christmas spirit like me?! I bet you are! If you’ve still got time to create a little something and you’re in need for something for your Christmas table, then maybe this project is something for you. 

I’ve made 5 “personal” Christmas stockings for cutlery/utensils for your Christmas breakfast/lunch/dinner … ! It’s an easy and quick project and although I used my Silhouette Cameo to create it, there’s absolutely no need to do this too. 

All you need is a template of a stocking and a sewing machine! You probably all know that Imaginisce belongs to the big American Crafts family as does Pebbles. And this month we received the fabulous “Home For Christmas” collection from Pebbles to play with. I was super happy about this, as I love Pebbles too!!! And in particular their Christmas collection!! 

What I love about this collection (apart from the awesome patterned paper designs) are the “Chips”! There are so many of them in a little bag and they are all so super cute!! Like that snowman or the elf!! 

Thanks for letting me share! Wishing you a wonderful time!! 

Pebbles: patterned paper, chips (Home For Christmas); American Crafts: Thickers (Candy Cane).

All Wrapped up from the North Pole!

Check out these fabulous gift wrapping ideas!

Hello Imaginisce fans!

We are getting down to the wire on Christmas now as it’s going to be here in a little over a week!  
I am an early shopper, and a subsequent early wrapper – I like to leave myself plenty of time to enjoy the season and without all the crazy.  But this year I added some extra on to myself as I wanted to crafty-wrap as many of my packages as possible.

I’m big on the whole re-use, re-purpose, upcycle, recycle thing and because I have an abundance of patterned paper from my papercrafting hobby, it was so easy to just use a sheet of patterned paper as you would a sheet of “real” wrapping paper.  The only difference really is the weight, so I made sure to use good tape, and add an extra strip or two.

The Home for Christmas collection from Pebbles is great because it’s so bold, and it’s got a lot of black in it.  
This next gift is for a fella I work with.  It’s wrapping is crafty, but because of the black, it’s not so girly.

Using the patterned paper and coordinating pieces from a collection for gift wrapping makes quick work.  Just pop on over to your craft table with a gift or two and you can wrap, and layer ephemera and get a couple of gifts knocked out in no time – and with that added personal touch as well.

I hope you’re enjoying the most wonderful time of the year!
Supply List -

The 'Sweetest' Tradition

Welcome back Imaginisce fans for another week filled with amazing holiday, Christmas themed ideas!  The design team has created so many wonderful ideas that we sure you'll want to try them out for next year (if you don't have time this year!).


'The Sweetest Tradition'
Are you baking Christmas cookies, or decorating a Gingerbread House this year? Pebbles has an adorable Christmas collection that is perfect for scrapping those snapshots. I have an amazing friend that creates several gingerbread houses from scratch every year (30-40 houses!). Then she and her daughters host gingerbread decorating parties. She supplies all the candy and frosting too. It was such a fun time I had to scrap a layout about it. 

I used the Imaginisce Milk Paint to make this awesome die cut look like peppermint candies. You just mix a little bit of the pink powdered paint with some water and apply with a paint brush. Save your packaging as they make awesome paint trays! Note...I painted my die cut before I adhered it to my layout and took this picture afterward.

I didn't want to cover up too much of my peppermint candy die cut background, so I created an interactive layout using some washi tape. The photo flips open, like a book. This way I could add more pictures underneath. Look at my decorated Gingerbread House, complete with a sleigh, snowman, trees, a little doggie, and Santa climbing down the chimney! 

It was so great to get together with my girlfriends.

Advent Calendar

What a great Advent calendar idea!

Hello All Lanette Here :)

Today I would like to share a quick and easy way to share Advent with your family. I created this calendar using a dollar bin frame and a bit of Pebbles -Home for Christmas Collection. 

I started by creating the base just, as you can see its just a bit of cardstock with  some stitches added.

Next I added it to my frame and added my Advent Cards that are just Pebbles 

Countdown Banner with my added notes on the back.

Finally I added a bit of decoration and Bling.

And there you have it a fun easy way to count down to Christmas & share Advent with your family.

Thanks so much for stopping in today!
