12 in 12: Day 12 (12-14)

And bam!

The finale of the 12 in 12 Christmas Card Challenge is here.

And bam again! Here is the card that I like to call, No. 12.


Just had “no holds barred” fun here and did some random clustering with gems, word tiles and circles  (from Me & My Big Ideas and Crate Paper).


Really love the random look of all those things together. I guess it’s that organized freestyle collage look again. 😉

The papers are from Pebbles, Echo Park Paper, Simple Stories and Becky Higgins.

And, dang, that’s all I have for you.

So like that, 12 in 12 is done for this year.

Be sure to check out Ashley’s final post. I’m sure it will be rad.

12 in 12: Day 10 (12-12)

(Busy couple days here on the blog-a-roo. If you are looking for my December Studio AE from Technique Tuesday blog post, go here.)

Hi all!

Day 10 is here. Boy, it seems like Ashley and I just started our 12 in 12 challenge.

This is today’s card!

12in12_10_Hohoho_teriThrew caution to the wind and went freestyle here. I guess you could say it’s more freestyle with some some order to it.

The base paper is from Pebbles and the embellishments are a mixture of stuff from different folks (Me & My Big Ideas, My Mind’s Eye and Michaels).

12in12_10_Hohohoclose_TeriLooking forward to seeing what Ashley’s cooked up today! Go, Ashley, go!

Be back tomorrow.

PS. The first ever monthly, digital issue of Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking magazine is out now. I was pleasantly pleased with the first issue! My first reaction was,
“Wow! It is huge!”  There were over 100 pages, and there aren’t just projects in it. There are tutorials and videos, too. Not sure what I expected, but I’m looking forward to seeing next month’s!

12 in 12: Day 5 (12-7)

Hello again.

It’s Day 5 of the 12 in 12 holiday challenge. So meet my take on it!


I’ve long been a fan of banners so I decided to give it a try for today’s card. Rather than flags, I used a couple tags stamped with Kelly Purkey’s Tis the Season set from Simon Says Stamp!


The holly element is a sticker from Me & My Big Ideas. The papers are just scraps leftover from other recent projects.

Looking forward to seeing what Ashley’s made today. I am sure it won’t disappoint.
