Christmas Tea Party

We had some fabulous events recently at Scrap Diva Retreats that I wanted to share with you. Every year we host an annual tea party and this year we hosted two because the first one filled up so quickly!

Christmas Tea Party

On December, 6th 2014 we had our first fabulous tea party. We made adorable Reindeer Christmas cards using Close to My Heart “Cut Above Christmas Card Kit.”

Christmas Tea Party

We sipped on delicious loose leaf tea from Teavana. My favorite tea is Cocoa Carmel Sea Salt. Since we used it all I’m definitely going to buy some more!

We also enjoyed a fun gift exchange.

Happy Holidays Scrap Divas!

4 Christmas Videos – Christmas Tags, Ornaments & Wreath

I hope you are having a very magical week enjoying the holidays with your friends and family!

I wanted to share a few short Christmas videos with you that I made and put on my YouTube channel. You can subscribe to the Scrap Diva Youtube channel here: https://www.youtube.com/user/scrapdivaretreats

Here’s a short video on some fun 3D Christmas cards I made with the Close to My Heart Artfully sent circuit cartridge. It’s an awesome card cartridge that gives you the ability to make tons of pop-up cards and 3D card variations. I hope you see something you like and feel inspired to make some AWESOME cards of your own.


I also made a quick tutorial on how to make an adorable Christmas wreath.

Check out this video on Christmas tag ornaments I made using Julie Nutting Stamps. Each ornament tag was inspired by a stanza from Eartha Kitt’s song “Santa Baby.” This is my all time FAVORITE Christmas song. I think it’s a perfect “Diva” song…especially the part about diamonds!

Check out my awesome tutorial on how to make your own Christmas tags which can be used on gifts or ornaments. I used Julie Nutting doll stamps.
