Fairy Lights and Sugar & Spice

Today on the NoelMignon blog, I wanted to bring you a little tutorial on how to make a pretty strand of "fairy lights." Our house is so gloomy now without our Christmas decorations, and with the days being so short (and cloudy right now, for us!), I needed something to brighten up our home!

*Note: do not leave these lights on unattended, just like with your Christmas tree. :)

And here's my layout for the new Sugar and Spice challenge. (Using the NM Paper Doll kit, of course!)
My husband recently called Sabriel "Miss Sugar & Spice" because she is the very epitome of that phrase, so I just had to use it as the title for the layout as well. :)
I made these little backgrounds for my letters using my Silhouette machine. It's part of the "Happy" banner and I just made it really small. (happy_birthday_banner-1)

I cut out a big square in the layout and backed it with some other patterned paper from the kit, and distressed the edges. I love how much dimension it gives!


  1. love the lights idea! I'll have to keep that in mind when I redo the girls room. And that LO is one of my absolute FAVES! LOVE it! And it IS so Sab!

  2. I love those lights! And, I have lights I bought on clearance too!


    And that layout? One of your best!

    Love it!

  3. Love that LO! Sooo cute...and now I have to go check out the NM challenge since I just finished a LO yesterday that is titled...wait for it....you got it...Sugar and Spice!!! LOL!

  4. YAY! The lights turned out so good. I was thinking of making them for Valentines day (and then of course leaving them up all year).

  5. I love that layout! So many fun details and such cute photos!! And your lights look great, looks like they really add a special something!

  6. adorableness!!!! and you got a Silhouette!!!!! we have got to talk!!! i am sure you are already doing things on yours that i can't even begin to figure out on mine! LOL!


I'm so glad you decided to leave me a comment today! Thanks for taking the time to stop by my little corner of the world. :)
