The spirit of Christmas truly makes this time of year absolutely magical, wouldn’t you agree?! Besides spending time with loved ones, I love getting crafty and making even little things extra special, particularly for my daughters! One of our newer family traditions is enjoying a North Pole Breakfast with our annual Elf friend, Buddy.

Our special elf, sent from Santa to assess if my girls will be on the nice or naughty list, makes his appearance in early December, and disappears the night of Christmas Eve. We’re pretty lucky that he’s not a naughty or mischievous elf, but he definitely keeps an eye on our girls!

Print, cut and create your “North Pole Breakfast” banner, with two types of snowflakes!

We have a special North Pole Breakfast with Buddy. Some of our friends wake up to a special North Pole Breakfast when their elves arrive. For our family, we have ours on the last day that Buddy is with us and we bid him adieu with a fabulous breakfast with lots of powdered sugar, marshmallows and whipped cream… you know, stuff to remind him of the snow he’ll be going home to! We have powdered donuts, hot cocoa, snowman shaped pancakes, with bacon scarves and berry buttons! We’ll even have santa hats made of strawberries, bananas and marshmallows! It’s a special breakfast, and a special meal and celebration deserves special decorations! So, I created this printable set, which I am thrilled with and hope you are too!

MakeItMondayButton-Christmas2Welcome to another Make It Monday! One of the biggest trends the past year or two has been shaker cards! What’s not to love?! They’re fun, interactive, handmade, and totally make you feel like a kid with grown up class 😀

I loved creating this card, of course using the amazing Top Dog Dies winter dies – specifically the Cardinal Die Set. It comes with the darling cardinals, the tree branch, holly and leaves. Such a sweet set!

I also used the Darice Woodgrain embossing folder to make the cardstock look and feel like a tree, which gives it a little whimsical feel, don’t ya think?

Well, I hope your week is off to a wonderful start and you’re ready to enjoy Thanksgiving with your loved ones! And I definitely hope you’re inspired to make some cardinal shaker cards to share with your loved ones this Christmas season!

Make It Monday // Penguin Card {Top Dog Dies}

MakeItMondayButton-Christmas2Welcome to another Make it Monday! The Christmas season is almost here and it’s time to start preparing! Perfect time to share this cute little penguin card I made using the Top Dog Dies Penguin Die Set!

TDD_CH_Winter-Penguins_1857

The set includes the cute penguins in both sizes, both hats, the stitched hill slope and snowflakes. Really, they thought of everything for this set!

TDD_CH_Winter-Penguins_1861 TDD_CH_Winter-Penguins_1862

It was super quick and easy to put this card together, just cutting out the pieces from the various colored cardstock. I did use a snowflake embossing folder to give the blue background a little extra oomph, but the rest of the pieces came in the set!

I hope you’re inspired to make some penguin cards to share with your loved ones this holiday!

Make It Monday // Thanksgiving Name Cards {Top Dog Dies}

MakeItMondayCircle-FALL2015Welcome to another Make It Monday! I’m excited to share a super quick project with you! Last year when I opened my Etsy shop, I added a few printables of Thanksgiving Tent cards – perfect for Name Cards or Buffet Table Menu Cards. And they looked darling! Here’s a peek:

Connie Hanks Photography // ClickyChickCreates.com // Thanksgiving, place cards, hostess gift, gift tags, gratitude, Etsy, custom, printable, pdf

This year, with the adorable Top Dog Pocket Pages Fall die set in my stash, I decided to have some fun with these already super pretty printables, but add a leaf to each card. I grabbed some pieces of fall colored cardstock and die cut a couple of the leaf shapes from the set. The details on the leaves from Top Dog Dies are just beautiful! I so love stitched details!

The printable place cards were printed on white cardstock on my home printer. Using a foam adhesive, I added a little pop and dimension to the leaves. To make all of the name cards pictured (I made 9 for this project), I think it took all of 15 minutes! Your guests would certainly be wowed with such pretty name cards and they’d never know it was such a quick project!

The table tents / place cards are available in my Etsy shop – in several different color combos, and each color combo comes with 2 sizes of tent cards. You can check them out here. For this project, I used the larger size (3″x3″ when folded) of the tent cards. They’re averrable via an instant download PDF. You can add your guest names using your PDF reader and just add text. Super easy peasy, even for the non-techie or crafty types 🙂

Well, I hope you enjoyed today’s Make It Monday and are truly enjoying the fall season! I’m looking forward to a little cooler weather and getting some cozy clothes out for cooler weather. This coolness might only last a few days here in San Diego, but I’ll enjoy every little bit of it 🙂

I love linking up at Simon Says – and this week the Wednesday challenge is “Thanks/Thanksgiving” – how perfect for this!
