Cristina’s Favs!

Cristina’s Favorite Picks!

With the holidays right around the corner – there are some items & some projects that have certainly caught my eye! Believe me it’s a hard thing to choose because there are sooo many wonderful things, but I do have my favorites…let’s get started.

Top Five Projects –

#5 Merci Card – Artful webisode

Stamping is one of my favorite activities because you can stamp on just about anything. I love the versatility of these Artful Collection stamps! Definitely one of my favorite stamps! On this card, I love the color combination along with how Susan has put it all together!


#4 Elegant Christmas Notes book webisode


What a fun project! The Elegant notes are a fun little product. Has given me ideas for using it as shown as the little book, on scrapbook pages or making cards from the notes! Whatever you decide to do – makes for great little starter pages!


#3 Snowflake greeting – Papier Tole II webisode


Love the colors and shiniest of the blue and silver Papier tole. Teresa did a marvelous job creating this beautiful, elegant card!


#2 Bangles webisode


WOW! This bangle is wonderful! I’m so attracted to the crystals. They usually stop me dead in my tracks. I know when I’m walking in the mall, and I walk by something shiny, I definitely have to stop and look! Well no different here. I was on maternity leave and all the projects from the webisodes were put in my office. Guess which one I picked up to oooooo and awwwww? LOL Yep you guess it! My number 2 pick!


#1 Paperblossoms webisode

I’m a flower at heart kinda of girl. When I first arrived here at HOTP/Paper Wishes, this was one of the first webisode that I worked on. Just fell in love with the technique and beauty of these flowers! My number # 1 pick is Paperblossoms.


Top 5 Products!

#5 Large Clear Pail

Endless possibilities! Used for many occasions–Easter, Halloween, Christmas, Mother’s Day…the list goes on and on. If you enter in the item number 750770 at, you’ll have many project samples!


#4 Smooch Ink!

A kiss of color! These inks are pearlized and come in a cute nail polish like bottle. Love that you can use these inks on paper, glass, cardstock, fabric, wood, clay and sooo much more! We have at least 10 different colors to chose from, I’m sure you’ll find something to inspire your creativity!



#3 The Enveloper

A must have for all card makers! Crafter’s Companion created this great tool, allowing you to create 9 different sizes of envelopes! Gives you the option to create standard size, mini and dimensional envelopes! Just a great tool to have in your collection!


#2 Black Letter Box Tray

Just love these little boxes! With over 20 compartments you’ll have soo much fun filling them up! Instead of pictures on the walls you can simply decorate these with words, pics, tags! Oh the options are endless!


#1 QuickStik

Definitely a must have for ALL crafters! You can use it to poke out, pick up, and place small items such as glitter, tape, crystals, flowers, beads, buttons, ribbons and more! There’s a detachable double-tipped poker for use on even the smallest objects. Twist the cap to expose the sticky tack to pick up small embellishments and place them on your scrapbook pages and cards with the poker for perfect placement every time!
