I used the following from The Robins Nest:

Christmas Greetings Clippies
Threading water border punch
Holly leaf hand punch
Tiara stickles
Thanks for coming by to see my end of the year creation, here's to a even more creative 2012!

Christmas 2011 at home

What a nice treat it is to finally be HOME! Sleeping in my own bed has been the greatest, and sleeping through the night too. On the 21st of December we went to see Christmas lights with our grandkids. It was pure joy. This photo here is taken at the Gateway Mall in Salt Lake City, with Becca Ann and Aliyah. We met the Grinch and his helpers handing out candy canes there, snowflakes in lights and this Christmas tree behind us that changed its look constantly. Then off to Temple Square, a great historical site in Salt Lake City to visit the Nativity and Millions of lights. Deseret Book across the street from Temple Square had a magical faux bakery, baking gingerbread cookies, conveyer belt moving the cookings, a faux oven with a glowing fire, and candies in jars moving like gears, around in a circle. It was magical for the grandkids, and litte 2 year old Kaydence just couldn't keep her eyes off of it. Employees handed out gingerbread cookies to everyone visiting the bakery. It was such a fun evening. It is fun to be back, to enjoy the wonderful things of our country, but especially to celebrate Christmas with our family again.
The evening closed with snowflakes falling from the sky, I knew for sure with magic like this I was back home. I love the snow and the changing seasons of Utah. Bundling up in coats, gloves, and hats is just fun again.
This week, now we get ready to celebrate in the New Year 2012. Wow, seems like at one time that was a year so far away, and now it is just a few days away. As I reflect on the last year, the larger part with us living in Ethiopia, I know and feel the joys of having family close again, and friends who love us. I think of the things I need to change in my life, and resolve to be a better person, mother, friend, and companion. I know we all reflect on our own lives and think of the things we need to change for the New Year.
We are making some changes with The Robin's Nest this year as well. Watch for these changes during the year from papers, to new stickers, and a new website. We are also sponsoring page layouts for sale, and book kits, all available on line. We know you will love these changes, love the new kits, and products.
I hope for you the best of all things, and the happiest of all New Years ever to all of you.

A Page, A Card & a Rock Collection Box



So much to share today! Since it's Christmas Eve, I am sharing a Christmas page and card that I made for a blog hop earlier this month on my own blog. You can find the Christmas Page in
formation HERE and the Christmas Card information HERE.

Along with the Christmas items, I'm sharing an idea for an Advent calendar, in case you didn't finish yours before the holiday! Use the advent calendar to make a rock collection box! And finally, I'll share how to make fabulous titles with Word Art from Microsoft Word!


Last year I purchased the Kaisercraft Advent Calendar and I finally finished it using beautiful papers from The Robin's Nest! This time instead of an Advent Calendar, I made a box for my boys rock collection!
Every summer we visit Lake Michigan and the boys are always finding fossils and other rocks. If you make the Kaisercraft Advent Calendar I recommend you visit the Merly Impressions Blog HERE as the instructions on the Kaisercraft site were not helpful or detailed. I painted the box with acrylic paint and allowed it to dry. I used the assembly instructions found in the tutorial at the link above. For the drawer boxes you can find a list of all the beautiful Robin's Nest papers and embellishments at the bottom of this post.

Using The Robin's Nest Glitter Sea Shore paper I created the background for the inside square in the box. I trimmed off the glittered print at the bottom and trimmed the plain teal portion at the top, so that it measured 8 1/2" wide to fit through my printer. It is so trendy right now to have text and book like backgrounds on your pages. So, I found an image on the internet; for free, of the Great Lakes and printed it onto the top portion of the Glitter Sea Shorepaper. Be sure to make a test print on scrap paper first if you use this technique!
To make the title I used the Word Art in Microsoft Word. Here's how:
1) Open Microsoft Word and an empty document
2) Click on the Insert Tab at the Top of the screen.
3) Click on the Word Art Icon on the right hand sideChose the Word Art you want to use by clicking on it. I wanted a word that was wider at the beginning and end of the word and narrow in the middle.
4) Chose the font you want and type your Text in the dialog box that appears and click OK. The picture above is how mine looked.

5) Drag to resize as desired.
6) Print out this file if you have NO digital software that works with a cutter, for those of you with a cutter and software, skip to step 8
7) Temporarily adhere your printout to the paper you want to use and hand cut. Remove your temporary print out.
8) If you have a cutter with digital software such as SCAL, Make the The Cut or other, Hit the Print Screen button.
9) Open Paint software
10) Paste your screen print into the new paint document and save as a JPG image
11) Open your digitial cutter software and covert the JPG to the format used my your digital cutter. For SCAL2, this is click on the File menu and click Trace Image. Click Browse and select the photo you saved in step 10. Make any adjustments, such as welding and now you have your title! For the cursive font that says "Lakes" and "Finds" I used the Opposites Attract Cricut Cartridge and my Cricut DS software to weld the letters.
This box is great because you can place the bigger rocks on the shelf as pictured and limit your kids to smaller rocks to fit in the drawers. The Robin's Nest papers were perfect for a masculine box that even a Mom could love for her home decor!

Supplies Used
The Robin's Nest Glitter Sea Shore Paper (center of box)
The Robin's Nest Calamity Jane Stripe (Stripe mat for title & on drawers)
The Robin's Nest Glitter Witch Accessories Paper (Chocolate Brown ships wheel, drawers & title)
The Robin's Nest Veranda Love/Stripe Paper
Making Memories Ribbon
Vintage button
Microsoft Word Software
SCAL or other cutting software (optional)
Ribbon (not sure as it has been in the stash for sooo long)
Art Glitter (on Dragonfly)

Shining Star Christmas Tree Topper

Happy Holidays! I hope you are having a wonderful time with family and friends!
Here is a Christmas Tree topper you can make using the beautiful paper and dew drops from

Materials and Supplies used:
Turn your Red Swirl Glitter over and trace a large circle using a dinner plate. Cut this out and then trace the same circle onto the back of the Glitter White on White.
 Draw a large star. Make it a little smaller than the circle. Cut this out.
 Mark the center of the star with the pen and then score from the center dot to the tips of each star point.
 For the fringe, sketch a border on the back side of Red Swirl Glitter. This helps you to keep a straight and even fringe. When using the fringe scissors you'll find that if you cut like I did in the photo, the fringe is straight, but if you cut the fringe from the inside of the scissors, the cuts twist. Neat huh?
Use your crop-a-dile or eyelet setting tool to punch holes in no particular pattern all over the star. Then  fold the star at the scored lines to "primp" it up a bit. Decide where you want the opening of your star to be and then apply a thin line of glue along the edges, except at the opening.
 Place your star onto your red fringed background. Secure the corners before you pinch the sides to make sure the stars creases hold. Then use your stapler to secure the stars edges.
Add your dew drops and accent them with the  glitter glue, then outline the star with the same, (covering up the staples) and set to dry completely.
I put a few lights around the top of the tree so they could glow through the holes I punched.
This is Dyllan's bedside tree, he decorated it himself. :)

So that's it. I hope I have inspired you to try something new and creative.  
Have a very Merry Christmas! ~ Michelle Frae Cummings

Convention Journal by Becky Conley

LinkWelcome to my final Robin's Nest post for 2011! (more coming next year :o) I'm very excited to have been chosen for another term on the Robin's Nest Design Team!! Woohoo!

I'll be heading to California in Januray for the Winter Craft and Hobby Association (CHA) Show where I will be meeting and mingling. So, I created this Convention Journal to be my assistant in keeping all of my new contacts organized.

ROBIN'S NEST SUPPLIES:
Calamity Jane Stripe card stock
Glitter Pine Trees double sided card stock (back side is Just for Boys Stripe)
Brown Fish Net
Live Brightly rub on flourish
Country blue mesh fabric

Miscellaneous supplies:
3L clear pockets
fibers, plastic leaves,
shells, flat shell, mica,
art glitter
charms: sand dollar and moon w/ star
dolphin wall paper cut out
rubber snake, sea glass
5.5 x 8.5 chipboard (2)
RubiCoil binding machine and coil
balsa wood, dowel and acrylic paint to make buoys.
left over wood flourish (Kaiser Craft)
left over shell die cut (Spellbinders)

I adhered the Calamity Jane Stripe to the outside cover of the chip board and Glitter Pine Trees card stock to the inside covers with the Just for Boys Stripe side up. Then I punched them with the RubiCoil and decorated the front of the book as shown. I added glitter to areas where glue was showing (around net edges, wood flourish and among the shells)

There are 15 pages of printed card stock (both sides = 30) inside with a clear pocket on each to hold a business card from new contacts. 20 sheets of plain white paper and 20 sheets of lined paper. After the cover completely dried, I assembled with the coil binding.


HERE'S A GREAT TIP when binding: some how, my paper wasn't loaded correctly for this punch and the holes go off the page. OH NO, don't throw it away!



ANOTHER AWESOME use for Duck Tape!!
Cut a strip of duck tape approx 1", place half on the front side then fold over to the back side and re-punch!



VIOLA! GOOD AS NEW.


If you are going to a convention and need one of these journals, please contact me for a quote and details.

I’m Peg Rounds and I am so happy to be returning as a design team member for The Robin’s Nest. I love being able to use the papers and embellishments from Robin’s Nest to give my creations that extra special touch. When I’m not getting my hands inky from stamping or paint filled from my painting hobby, I am spending time with my husband, son and our 2 dogs.  I enjoy making cards, but also have fun doing scrapbook pages and altered art.  My latest fun in the craft world is finding things to mold and cast using resin to use around the house or on cards and layouts.   I love to chat with friends on crafting message boards, Facebook and Twitter.  You can often find me hanging out on my blog.

Cutting rings of paper to create garland, making ghost gum from glue, and adding a little too much glitter to any heart I drew. The creative bug bit me at a very early age and I've never looked back. Hi everyone, I'm Erika Taylor and I'm a craftaholic!!! In 2008, I decided to start paper crafting and one thing led to another. I'm blessed to have been on numerous design teams over the past few years and I'm expanding my own creative muse to include so much more than just cards and scrapbook layouts. I love getting inked up to create mixed media projects and if I can alter something, I will.
 I live in Southern Alberta with my loving, very attractive and supportive husband Mark and our 2 boisterous children age 4 and 7. Anything to do with Vampires and the Fantasy Realm gets my attention, and yes that includes Twilight! I love Italian Sweet Cream in my coffee and there is nothing better than cupcakes with extra frosting(unless that something better is chocolate). I'm moved by the colors around me, emotions and the media. Creatively, I embrace change and love to try new things and I'm super excited about being a part of The Robins Nest design team. You will always know its me because I say "toodles" and "ABSOLUTELY" a whole bunch.





My name is  IRIT and I am from sunny ISRAEL. I am really thrilled to be again on Robin's Nest DT and hope to inspire you all with new and different projects. In my "real life" I am a dentist, but for the last 5-6 years I do it as a part time job, because I need some extra time  for my scrapping and crafting addiction and I  have a lot of fun doing something else after 25 years of dentistry. I have been married for 29 years to a retired high police officer, who is the full time family cook these days.  I am a mom to 4 grown ups: 2 sons and twin daughters. The empty nest is probably the main reason for my obsession for crafting - finally I have some time for myself.  My oldest son is an  army officer, married and a Dad of my first grandson Omer. The second one is " a world traveler" - for the last 6 years after his army service he is out of Israel for at least 9 months a year- lives and works in Spain. My twins are in their last year of college and my  major scrapbooking inspiration.   I need to say that I have been totally addicted to crafting since I was a little girl. For many years it was a  polymer clay and jewelry making, but after I saw a scrapbook layout for the first time in my life (only 5 years ago during my visit to USA), I  finally understood  that I am in love with paper. Today I mostly scrap and do altered art and less card making. My style is mostly shabby and vintage, but sometimes I move to other styles too, all, but clean and simple one.  I have been a  design team member in about 9-10 challenge blogs and was a guest designer on lots of others  during the last years, but since a last 2 years I design for manufacturers only.  Right now I  am a permanent designer  for UK chipboard company named Tando creative,  A2Z Scraplets Australian company,Pretty Little Studio paper company, Creative Inspirations Paint, Epiphany Crafts Tool company, WOW embossing powders company and Inspired by Stamping stamp company. I was a DT member for Best Creation paper and Cherry Lynn Designs die company for a year term, SNR staff member  and a Guest Designer for several USA companies in the past. I was published in print in Israel several times and was published in every possible web magazine during the last years. Last, but not least- my other addiction is..... folk dancing. So if I am not in my crafting room- I am probably dancing. I am totally thrilled to be a member of this team. You are welcome to visit my blog



I am the eighth of eleven children, seven girls and four boys.  My husband and I have been happily married for 18 years and have two boys.   I have an Associates degree in fashion design, a bachelors degree in Apparel Design and Aesthetics and a Masters degree in Family and Consumer Economics.
  After graduating, I worked for several apparel manufacturers in the Chicago area for short periods, as manufacturing continued to move overseas.  Most of my experience is in retail  apparel product development.  There I helped develop and implement a computer aided design/spreadsheet software program that is used in apparel product development.
I am currently a stay at home mom who is passionate about using my Cricut and sewing machines.  I started a non-profit scrapbooking guild with some friends and we meet monthly to scrapbook and do a little charity work.  I am responsible for maintaining the S.C.R.A.P. Guild of Northern IL’s blog and Facebook page. 
I have two stores on Etsy where I sell dust covers for all types of electronic cutters, you can find them here:  www.scrappincovers.etsy.com and www.scrapguild.etsy.com. 
I have scrap booked for 13 years, I sew, and do a little bit of all types of crafts.  I enjoy blogging, cut files, scrapbook pages, techniques and more at my blog too: www.cricutcraftyclare.blogspot.com.  I love glitter and bling and making my own embellishments for less!
My design team experience, includes a previous term with The Robin’s Nest and two terms with Art Glitter.  You can find my Art Glitter work here:  http://www.artglitter.com/guestdesigners.html#ClareDempsey

Decorated Glass Ornament

Here is a pretty ornament you can make using The Robins Nest Fiesta "diamond" Dew Drops!

You will need a clear glass ornament, shiny filler, Fiesta diamond Dew Drops, a bit of card board tube (taken from a used paper towel), and adhesive meant for bling- I used Tombo.
  1. Clean your glass ornament with window spray to remove any finger prints and greasy residue.
  2. Take off the top and set aside.
  3. Stuff the ornament with as much or as little of your shiny filler.
  4. Re-attach the top.
  5. Decide if you want a pattern or random design with the bling.
  6. Starting with just the top, dot the glue and add the diamonds.
  7. When you have decorated more than half way down the ornament, turn it upside down and rest it in the cardboard tube.
Finish decorating and set to dry before hanging on your tree or give as a gift!

Frosty Tag



I've been trying to sneak in the 12 Days of Tags with Tim Holtz - so for my last post for the Robin's Nest, I was able to take on Tim's Day 4 challenge! I changed things up a bit, though, so I could use some sparkly Robin's Nest Papers.

Did you know that the glittered areas on Robin's Nest papers act as a wonderful resist? My snowman was cut out of White Snow Glitter Cardstock, but then I used Distress Stain in Broken China to change the color and to really highlight the designs. Next, I painted over the image with Rock Candy Crackle Paint. After it was dry, I rubbed Faded Jeans Distress Ink into the cracks. I think this was a fun change for the tag!



I've enjoyed being on the DT for the Robin's Nest for the past six months and although I didn't reapply for a second term, I know the ladies staying on will continue to inspire you, and the new crew as well! Thanks for your generosity throughout my time with you!

Happy Holidays!

I love putting black and white together so I couldn't resist using this gorgeous paper to create a card for this holiday season. The glitter in the snow gives a more elegant look to the black and white theme.  I'm excited that Robin's Nest carries glitter snowflakes that fit perfectly with this paper.  I just love those! Don't they look fabulous and add great dimension to the card?  I added the Cotton Candy Dew Drops to add another layer to them, too.  They made great centers to the snowflakes!  I chose to trim the paper using a scalloped blade to create more of a picturesque look to the card instead of a square on square look and then chose one of my favorite stamps for the greeting.  I have to admit this was a quick and simple card, but it has to be one of my favorites that I did this season. 

Robin's Nest Products Used:
Cotton Candy Dew Drops
Dew Dew Glue
Glitter Snowflakes

Snowflake boot ornament




Hello, my dear Robin's Nest friends! Irit is here again and this time with my altered Winter boot ornament.
I made it as my freehand shape of a boot from Glitter Water Swirl backside  paper and added 2 blue strips cut from Winter Snowflakes paper for the bottom and the upper part of my boot.
The basic boot was dry embossed with Dots and Spots embosser- you need to make it twice as the shape is bigger then the embosser is and try not to overlap the embossing.
Glue the blue strips, add some white pen faux stitching too.
Now use you Marvy Uchida Snowmaker and your heat gun to make this snow under the upper strip.
Glue 3 Glitter Snowflakes with silver Dew Drops from Early Dawn set as a center on the top of the boot.
Glue one long strip of crystals as shown and a thin Blue ribbon under the snow line.
Ink the piece with some blue ink around and glue a lot of random silver Dew Drops over the  embossed spots.
Add the hanging ribbon with a Snowflake ribbon from Blue frost Ribbon set  bow on the top.
If you are a beader as I am- make some crystal homemade embellishment and glue it over the boot. If not- use some premade one or add another snowflake.
Enjoy your ornament made with Robin's Nest most gorgeous winter products.
