A Sweet Nutcracker

I think I've lost my mind....

5:40 am, feeding the baby: I have my cell phone balanced on my leg and I'm checking Facebook while I wait for Nick to finish his bottle. I see the new kit from SVG Cuts and the AWESOME Nutcracker. I decide I don't need sleep, as soon as this kid is finished eating and back in bed I need to go download this kit and make one of my own!

Yep, total insanity. But it turned out great!







And of course I had a cute little helper for part of this (Mostly the body and head - Yep, I glued with limited, baby-related, mobility!).

A Thanksgiving Treat

Happy Thursday!

This week at A Jillian Vance Design we are doing Thanksgiving projects. I decided to do a little treat holder that could be put out with snacks before dinner. I used SVG Cuts Acorn Autumn SVG kit for the treat holder.


I stamped the pumpkin from the Funny Fall Faces stamp set onto textured Bazzill cardstock and colored the leaves with a Tim Holtz Distress Marker.


On the other side I used Jillian's {die}lightfully Charming Circle Die and a sentiment from the Charming Holidays stamp set.

First Halloween

Happy Thursday!

It's design team time at A Jillian Vance Design! This week we are doing Halloween layouts. Since this is my little guy's first Halloween this was kind of fun! I did an 8 1/2" x 11" layout since it will fit in his baby book.


I kept this fairly simple. I used the {die}velop Foto Frames dies to make spots for my pictures. I matted them with orange and black cardstock and stamped the bottom of each with a sentiment from the Eye on Halloween stamp set.


In the smallest frame I stamped the First from the {die}velop Baby Fotos stamp set, Happy Halloween from the Funny Fall Faces stamp set, and the little candy corns from the Charming Holidays stamp set.

A Monster Treat

Hello!

It's Thursday again so that means it's time for another project for A Jillian Vance Design! This week was a designer's choice so I decided to stay with Halloween. Creepy, isn't he?


This is a little treat container that I made into a monster using Jillian's Zipper {die}vice and the Eye on Halloween Stamp Set.


On the top of the box I used the {die}Verse Tag Die to add my sentiment.


When you pull the zipper "mouth" open we have candy! How fun would this be for a fun Halloween treat for a special kid?

Best Witches

Happy Thursday!

Today I have a fun Halloween treat for you! I used A Jillian Vance Design's Charming Holidays Stamp Set with the Toil and Trouble kit from SVG Cuts.


This project was super easy. The SVG file is two pieces that can be cut from one sheet of paper. Instead of using the buckle that came with this file I added a rosette and the Best Witches stamp from the Charming Holidays set.



On the side of the shoe there is space for a brad. I used my i-Top and the small 16mm brad base to make this custom brad. The little cat stamp is also part of Charming Holidays.
