Jeri Vann Creations Projects for the DCWV Booth at CHA 2016

I was lucky enough to have a couple of my projects displayed in the DCWV Booth at CHA 2016 in Anaheim this month.

I also got to play with some of the newest, and cutest products!

A fun, new, and completely customize-able product is the DCWV Life Bok.


It comes with a bunch of pages for notes, fill ins, and calendar.
I had my darling niece fill it out, all about her life and loves.
I also added some pictures that I had taken of her a few days before.




Next up, I created this Guitar Layout using the new Glam Rock Stack.


Again, this is a fun picture I took of my niece and her pink guitar. The Glam Rock stack had the perfect colors, prints and wording for this layout.


Here is my Emerald Garden Card, made with the Emerald Garden Stack. I love this stack! The colors are all of the green shades I love, along with metallics.




And lastly, here is an accessory hanger I made with the Magnolia Way Stack. I fussy cut a ton of darling butterflies from the stack and placed them all around the accessory hanger for added effect.

Reclaimed Window Family Frame

Reclaimed Window - Family Frame


My brother has the most amazing family-in-law! They are so generous and welcoming and I am so lucky they treat me like family as well.

Unfortunately, about 7 months ago, their home was partially destroyed by smoke and was unlivable. They lost almost everything in the house, and had to tear the house apart and redo everything. 
I was able to take their family pictures last winter, and I thought it would be a heart-felt Christmas gift to make them some new home decor, and include all of their beautiful faces. Not that they need to be reminded, but this is a daily reminder that people you love are the most important things in life, not material items. 

I was able to get my hands on this beautiful old window, added a new coat of paint and distressed it.
I added some beautiful, and perfectly stated, DCWV Wall Transfers.


I loved this 'DCWV Life Is Sweet' transfer, so I put it front and center, as the main focus for the frame.

I printed out a few of my favorite pictures from the shoot, and secured them to some fiber board with ModPodge. I screwed some hooks into the frame and hung the images on them. This way, as the family grows, they can replace them with new pictures.

For the rest of the wording and the leafy decals, I used the DCWV Remember To CherishDCWV Winter Garden Peel & Stick Wall Accents, and the DCWV Swirly Branches Peel & Stick Wall Accents. They all coordinated so well!

Extra Large Holiday Bows

If you have a large gift to wrap this season, don't spend too much money on a pre-made bow from the store!
Make your own (and have a full stack left over!)


The DCWV 16x20 Premium Stack is perfect for making extra large, incredible, gift bows.
I found this tutorial online for a large gift bow, and come to find out.... a single page of the DCWV 16x20 stack is the perfect size for a single bow! Think of how many you could make with a single stack!!

I decorated the paper first. I then distressed and crumpled the paper I made for my dad's bow.

I also made glitter gift tags from metal tags.


For my mom's bow, I did not distress the paper. I spritzed with paint for some color.
You can make each bow unique!




I would love to post a picture of these adorable bows on my large Christmas gifts,... but they are a surprise (it's not Christmas yet)So please use your imagination!

Let It Snow Layout


Have you sat in a hot tub in the winter, while it's snowing?
Well you need to try it!

Then, to create the perfectly snowy layout to remember those moments, grab the DCWV Christmas Village, Favor Boxes and Ornaments Stacks!


It's hard to tell in the picture, but the layout sheet is a beautifully thick, textured, glittery page from the back of the DCWV DIY PROJECT STACK - CHRISTMAS VILLAGE.



The adorable snowflakes came from both the DCWV DIY PROJECT STACK - FAVOR BOXES and the DCWV DIY PROJECT STACK - ORNAMENTS



And of course, I always love to throw some darling Blue Moon Beads Charms in wherever I can! This little metal snowflake charm was perfect!

DCWV Corrugate Christmas Gift Tag

Want a unique touch to your handmade gift tags this Christmas Season? Add a real pine tree sprig.

I created this large gift tag with DCWV Box of Corrugate Cards, and placed an oval piece of grey paper on top.


I strung a Blue Moon Beads Wish Charm on some silver string and wrapped around the tag.
I cut a small piece of a pine tree, sprinkled with some white glitter and then added some Blue Moon Beads Silver Round Metal Beads as ornaments.

This tag was quick and easy to create, and is sure to gain some attention!

DCWV - Metallic Gold Tree - Cork Advent Calendar


Everyone loves to countdown to Christmas.
Make it easy on yourself, and fun for everyone with an Advent Calendar.



I made this fun little tree from a few cuts of wood, metallic gold spray paint and a bunch of nails.


For the numbers I used the DCWV Natural Cork Stack, a circle punch and some white paint. Each circle is hand painted with a number, and then hole punched at the top. They are simply hung off of nails.


I crafted a bunch of cute little gifts to sit under my tree, but you can put real gifts if you'd like! These darling DCWV Boxes all come in one nifty package. A large variety of sizes for all of your little gifts. And we all know the best gifts come in the smallest packages!!

I wrapped them with some fun DCWV papers.


Another fun wrapping idea is to use a standard circle hole punch and DCWV Metallic Cardstock. Punch a bunch of circles and randomly stick them on the box with GlueDots! Perfect polka dots!

Mercury Glass Holiday Gift Card Holders

Being on the DCWV Guest Designer Team is just incredible. 
I get to work with some of the most incredible new products. 

In my latest shipment, I received this gorgeous DCWV Mercury Glass Paper. It comes with 4 different shades.


The sheets of paper are thick, durable and perfectly metallic.
...and of course they made my Holiday Gift Card Holders absolutely magnificent!




For the back of the card, I spray painted a chipboard frame and hot glued a cut piece of the DCWV Insta Photo Fun plastic sheet. It made a perfect pocket for the gift card.




I also tied on a Blue Moon Bead Jingle Bell Charm.






These glittery flowers from the Dollar Tree look amazing on the front of the card, and matched the Mercury Glass paper perfectly.

 Here is the finished Mercury Glass Holiday Gift Card Holder.
Very easy to make, and add so much to the gift!
