Day 21 of 25 Days of Christmas Series at



Supplies Needed:

  • Lifestyle Crafts Evolution Die Cut machine
  • Genius Platform with included Dies
  • We R Memory Keepers Chevron Washi Tape (in Emerald)
  • Cardstock

Before I get started on this project, I want to tell you that if you are interested in any of these tools or products you can use code CHESAYS and get 20% off your order!  I’m kind of in love with this stuff!

First I cut a piece of Kraft cardstock to fit my Genius Platform and I applied a strip of Chevron Washi Tape down the length of the paper.

Silhouette Portrait Giveaway + Chipboard Gift Boxes

You all know how much I love my Silhouette!  I might have mentioned something a time or two before!  I have made several vinyl projects.  I love the fabric inks and I used them to make this funny baby onesie and I made a screencast on how easy it is to use the Designer Edition of Silhouette Studio Software.  Add in a fun ghost t-shirt and the analytical version of a Christmas dish towel with the heat transfer and your options with the machine are endless.  Embellish cards, frames, almost anything with the double sided adhesive paper, like my valentine’s day candle.

I am so excited to share with you a new product to join the Silhouette family…Chipboard!  And so excited to host a Silhouette Portrait Giveaway today!

Washi Tape Clothespin Magnets

Do you Washi yet?  It might be my new crafting obsession.  Washi tape is a paper tape that is all cute!  It’s sticky, but not permanently-ruin-what-ever-you-stick-it-to sticky.  It’s giving, so if you mess up, you can have a re-do.  It’s colorful and kind of replaces pretty scrapbook paper and glue!  I love it.  I have…
