A Moxie Fab Homespun Holiday!

moxie

Hello crafty friends and welcome to a very special post today!  I'm delighted to be joining a HUGE group of talented paper crafters today to honor Cath Edvalson - creator of the inspirational Moxie Fab World blog!  Cath will be leaving her job as a contributing editor for Paper Crafts Magazine this month, so a group of us got together to host a Designer's Blog Hop today to help celebrate Cath and show her just how much she will be missed!

papersweeties-debbie-11-9-13(2)I have been a fan and follower of the wonderful Moxie Fab World blog for several years ... and have found so much inspiration in the weekly challenges offered there!  A couple of the very first challenges I ever won at the beginning of my paper crafting 'career' were from projects I created and submitted to Cath's Moxie Fab World challenges:

Challenge Winner Button

8/4/10 - Moxie Fab World Card Style: Shabby Chic winner!

10/13/10 - Moxie Fab World Holiday Cards & More: Season's Giftings winner!

11/2/11 - Moxie Fab World Textured to Perfection winner!

7/16/12 - Moxie Fabber of the Week!

papersweeties-debbie-11-9-13(1)I love making handmade from the heart paper crafted treasures all year round, but when the holidays roll around, I am so in my 'element'!  Christmas truly is the most wonderful time of the year for me, and I so enjoy creating pretty things from paper and glue to help celebrate the season!  Cath's Moxie holiday challenges were always at the top of my list of favorites to be inspired by and create along with!  Cath was always so encouraging and sweet through the comments she left on my little projects -- the fact that she took the time to leave me a little love throughout my crafting journey always touched my heart!

papersweeties-debbie-11-9-13(3)I created a holiday card in honor of Cath with a homespun feeling -- all warm and cozy with gingham and dots, lace and buttons, tea-stained hem tape and rusty bells!  I'm thinking this card will become my 2013 family holiday card ... smitten with it's warmth and charm ... what do you think?  {click on photos for larger views}

I used these *new* holiday goodies from the Paper Sweeties boutique which are LIVE in the shop as of today -- released EARLY this month for all of your holiday crafting needs:

Homespun Holidays stamp set

Rusty Jingle Bells

I hand tea-stained the hem tape.  The buttons and twine are from Papertrey Ink.  The gorgeous patterned paper is from October Afternoon - 2012 and I've been hoarding it in my stash ... LOVE 🙂

Boo – TKJ #143!

TKJ #143We have a color inspiration challenge for this week at The Kraft Journal!  I LOVE color inspiration challenges, how about you??

Debbie TKJ #143 (2)

I began with a base of Brown Kraft Cardstock which I layered onto a pumpkin shaped card template from The Cutting Cafe and hand cut.  Next I cut the decorative layers for the top of the pumpkins using various patterned papers and Vintage Dictionary Pages.  After adhering the decorative layers, I cut burlap stems for the pumpkins using Burlap Tags.

Debbie TKJ #143 (1)

To create the leaf nosegay, I added glittered leaves I hand cut, Tiny Wooden Green Clothespins and Bright Green Hemp Cording.  Last, I added a glittered pumpkin sticker and gave him a sweet sentiment stamped onto a Grungy Prim Tag using the Too Cute To Spook stamp set from Paper Sweeties and then secured on a Memo Pin.

Please be sure to visit The Kraft Journal to be inspired by the rest of the teamies' projects this week, and then I hope you'll give our color inspiration challenge a try for a chance to win an awesome prize package from The Kraft Outlet Shop!
