My 2022 Top Ten Favorite Projects

30 Dec

Today I am joining several crafters for the Year in Review 2022 Blog Hop, showcasing our favorite projects created in 2022.

Here are my top ten projects!

Let’s Sled layout

This background paper is so gorgeous, and I love how easy it was to make a layout with it!

A Magical Birthday card

original post here

So many details on this card, but it was fun to make, and I love how it turned out!

Interactive Happy Birthday card

original post here

This was my first tab interactive card, and I love it!

Jurassic Birthday Decorations

I went ALL out with the birthday decorations for The Little Guy this year. Lots more pictures on the original post!


Relaxing Birthday card

original post here

This was a post for the Ally’s Angels design team, and I really like the muted color scheme on this one-very different for me!

Pineapple Birthday card

original post here

This was for the Mix It Up Challenge Blog design team, and really pushed me out of my comfort zone-I love how it turned out!

Platform Pop-Up card

original post found here

This was another card for the Ally’s Angels design team, and my first box card. I was literally giddy with how easy it was to put this together. I love it!!!! I see many more of these types of cards in my future!

Great White Christmas card

original post here

This was for the Mix It Up Challenge Blog design team. I made six different cards similar to this one, but this is my absolute favorite. They were extremely time-consuming to make (so much ink blending!) but TOTALLY worth it! It’s my favorite card of the whole year.

Mixed Media Tree cards

original post here

The pictures don’t do these cards justice! They are so pretty and sparkly! I don’t use mixed media all that often, but I love how these turned out!

Baby Jesus card

original post here

This card is so fun and happy, and I like the layers.

Well, that’s it!

I hope you enjoyed looking back at some of my favorite projects from 2022.

    Such great cards, Rachel! Love them all and especially the fun folds! You will have to check out my fun fold challenge sometime. They really are quite addictive once you get started. Hope you have a wonderful and happy new year!

    So many fun styles and techniques! I am really intrigued by that tab pop up card; it’s adorable and that is one technique I don’t think I’ve seen before.

      Thanks! It’s just a die from Lawn Fawn, and super easy to use. I think it’s called the pull tab die.

    Such a fun and beautiful assortment of cards! The images are all gorgeous and would be so hard to choose a favorite! But there is something about red, white and kraft I love for Christmas cards, so maybe that’s my personal favorite?
    I’m so glad you decided to join in the hop this year!
