Neon colors have been so popular this year, and while I don’t miss many of the trends that were popular in the ’80s (zigzag crimping irons, anyone?), I am embracing neon like a long-lost, very brightly-colored friend.
Needless to say, my new neon glitters are some of my current favorite craft supplies, and I had much fun creating these festive holiday gift tags. You can check out the original feature (video tutorial included) over at k.becca, and you can find the Holiday Wishes gift tag die cuts in the k.becca shop.
Warning : If regular glitter is addictive (and it is), then neon glitter is doubly so. I find myself wanting to give everything a glittery, neon glow.

I recently finished a fun advent calendar project using the new Silhouette Advent Calendar kit, and I’m excited to share it over here, as well as on Paper Crave, where you can read more about the project. I’ve wanted to do an Advent calendar for years but could never find a shadow box with more than a dozen or so nooks, and this frame is just what I’ve been searching for.
I used my trusty Silhouette SD to cut out all of the box templates (all of the template files are included with the Advent calendar) and all of the numbers that I used in my project, and I’m really happy with the result. Now, I just need to figure out what I’ll be putting in all of the little boxes.
If you have a die-cutting machine and are interested in making an Advent calendar of your own, Silhouette has a pretty good deal going on until November 11th. You can purchase the Advent Calendar for just $29.99, a $10 discount from the regular price. Use code CRAVE to receive your discount.
The printable patterned papers and number die-cutting templates that I used in my project can be purchased over on k.becca, and I bundled everything together at a special discount price if you’d like to purchase the papers and numbers together.

Is it really almost Halloween? I haven’t even had my yearly viewing of “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” yet.
I also recently realized that I haven’t yet told you about my new site, k.becca, which launched back in September. The new site is part portfolio, part paper crafts blog, and part shop. Yep, I finally opened my own shop!
I’m working hard on finishing up my Christmas and winter holiday collections, but in the meantime, if you’re looking for some fun Halloween goodies, head on over and check out the printable Halloween paper designs and die-cutting templates that are in the shop right now. And have a gander at the blog, where you’ll find some very quick and easy Halloween treat bag video tutorials. I never thought I’d ever voluntarily do a video tutorial, but I stepped outside my comfort zone and went for it, and I’m actually really enjoying making them. Look for some Christmas and winter paper craft tutorials very soon.

Last week on Paper Crave, I shared these fun paper citrus slice and box templates, and I wanted to let you all know about them, too. You can use the citrus slices for a bunch of different types of projects – everything from scrapbooking project embellishments to handmade cards to citrus-themed party details, and I’ve included SVG, GSD, DXF, and Silhouette Studio files (half slices and full slices) for those of you who have digital cutters, as well as a PDF with all of the files if you’ll be cutting the slices out by hand.
Also included in the zip file are SVG, GSD, DXF, and PDF templates for the favor/gift box, and I created a Silhouette Studio template file that includes perforations. PDF files for the striped papers are included, too, so you can make your own striped, citrus slice embellished boxes.
Please read : All files are for personal, non-commercial use only and are © Kristen Magee. You do not have permission to redistribute, resell, or claim any of these files as your own, and you may not use the citrus slices or boxes as elements in products that you will be selling.
