Magnolia Tilda in the Mountains Winter Card

Good morning to you all.  Today I would like to sharing a card with Tilda in the Mountains.  I have to say this Tilda is one of my favorites in the Christmas Story Collection.  She reminds me of the winter trees in the mountain, so I digged out my Spruce Tree die from the Magnolia Doohickey Cutting Die that I bought a while ago, then also cut out some Poppystamp Curly Wreath to tuck behind the image.  I cut them with two different colors and embossed them before putting them on.  
Here is my finished card
I am using this card for the following challenges:
CSAYL#37 - To die 4
Inspire Me Fridays #86 - Anything Goes
Stampin For the Weekend #22 - Use Some Texture
Marvelous Magnolia Challenge #4 - Non Traditional X'mas Colors with X'mas Theme
Midweek Magnolia Week #38 - I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas

Magnolia Tilda with Cat Wreath ornament with gift box

Good morning everyone.  Thank you for stopping by for my sharing today.  Christmas is only about a month away, so I prepared a little Christmas wreath ornament with it's own gift box.  I used Glory Tilda of the newest Nativity Collection for the gift box and the Christmas Tilda with Cat from the Little Christmas Collection on the Wreath Ornament.  Of course there are tons of many other stamps from Magnolia-licious Store that you use for alternations too.
I am also using this project for some challenges, please scroll down for the challenges I am entering.
Here is the Tilda with Cat ornament inside the gift box.

Surprise - Wicked Tilda Ticket Holder Box

Good morning everyone.  This post is specially dedicated to my husband and my daughter.  First I would like to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY HUSBAND EDDY.  He grow a year older today :o)

Ok, now onto my post. My 12 year old daughter loves the broadway songs and the book of "Wicked".  She always wanted to watch it and even asked many times for us to bring her to see this broadway show in New York.  Going that far to New York is impossible for us at the moment.  Since she begs for so long, one day, I decided to check if this show will come play a little closer around our area.  Finally I found one in Seattle.  Although it's still quite a few hours drive for us from where I live in Canada, I went to discuss with my husband.  We came to a decision of getting the tickets online without telling our daughter about the show, but instead told her we are going to Seattle to spend a day to celebrate daddy's birthday (My husband's birthday is today).  In fact, we surprised her by bringing her to the broadway Wicked show in Seattle (which happened last night).  I even made a ticket holder box for these tickets.
Here is the picture of my excited daughter when she got this suprise present from us
When the tickets arrived in the mail, I checked these tickets' sizes and made this box to tuck the tickets inside for her.

I am also using this box for the following challenges:
Tilda's Town Challenge #27 - Anything Goes
Sweet Pea Stampers November Challenge - Gifts
Lady Anne's Challenge Oct/Nov Challenge - Sentiment/anything Goes
Fairy Tale Challenge #54 - Embossing
Inspire Me Friday #85 - Anything Goes

I picked Tilda with Spiderweb that I bought from Magnolia-licious for this box, but of course you can pick any TILDA or EDWIN for any other themes to give away. Also be sure to check out the colored images that the DT did for the Magnolia Christmas Story collections and the Nativity Collection.  They are so cute and great to use them for Christmas theme project.  (maybe you can give someone a broadway show tickets as a Christmas present, lol)
I also got this sentiment embellishment (which has the word' Halloween' at the bottom, but I punched it out) for the box.

Here are the tickets to tuck inside the box
Here is the bottom of this box

Thank you for stopping by for this post.  See you soon for another sharing later :o)

Magnolia Nativity Box for Christmas Winter Decoration

Good morning everyone.  Today I am sharing the Magnolia Nativity Collection project with you.  I used some stamps of this collection from Magnolia-licious  to create six picture boxes.  These boxes are 4" x 4" each.  Although these boxes took me so much time to make, but they are actually quite easy to make.  The hard part is to get an idea on the box and what stamps should I pick for each design.

Here are the finished projects.  Please scroll down to check closer views for names of each stamp on this collection.
I am also using the above creations for the following challenges:
Lady Anne's Challenge - Anything Goes

Magnolia Ski Edwin with Snowflakes Picture Frame

Good morning and happy Monday.  Today is another sharing of a project I did.  It's not a card, but a picture in a frame.  I haven't used my sewing machine for a while, but I helped my daughter with her sewing project  at school the other day, so I decided to use it for my paper project. The stamp I picked for this project is Ski Edwin with Snowflakes from the Christmas Story 2012 Collection from Magnolia-licious. The vellum sentiment was from Bo Bunny which I bought many years ago.  As you can see I've also used the PS Curly Wreath and the Flowering Christmas Die from Memory Box.  Also the newest Nativity Collection is avaiable in the store too, so be sure to check these images out to see how cute they are!!
Here is my finished picture frame.

I am using this project for the following challenges:
Crazy 4 Challenge C4C161 - Anything but a card
Dream Valley Challenge #44 - Glitter and Bling
Glitter n Sparkle Challenge #5 - Anything but a square or Glitternsparkle
