Last day of my 12 days of Christmas. It has been fun...but such a busy it is not always easy to get everything done. I am sure all of you go through the something this time of year.

I did Birthday books for some of my friends this year. They are so easy and so handy to have.

I found the template for the months at Paper trey ink as a free download. Can't beat that!

I just covered a couple of pieces of chip board with printed paper and decorated.

If you are needing chip board cut...the easiest place is Kinko's. They will cut it for you and they are very reasonable. I think Office Max will also cut it for you. It sure is an easy way to get book covers if you are wanting to do little chip board books for the holidays.

Please enjoy and come back and see me. I will be back before the holidays and hopefully posting some layouts.

I am heading to Charleston for a couple of days to do some shopping and have some daughter time!

Have a great day!


Sassy Cheryl holiday 11

Hey all...two more of Sassy Cheryl's images that I colored and made a couple of cards. Jumping Jack Santa and Christmas Bellringer are the images. That little boy is one of my very favorites.

I just used my Copics and did some coloring on them and made two quick cards.

Enjoy and stop back.

Day 10...JOY

Good morning fellow crafters. Hope you had a great weekend. Ours was busy as always but we took time and went to one of our local Christmas shows on Saturday. That is always a good way to get into the holiday spirit.

I made this layout a while back...still trying to work on last years Christmas this was a layout of Sydney doing her usual holiday baking with me. She is the one who always is ready to help me bake.

The papers I used on this layout were October morning. The gingerbread man is cut at 3 inches From my Kitchen cartridge. The back ground paper is a cut from Winter Woodlands and it is about 10 inches.

Enjoy and have a great day!

All American Snowman 9!

Hey all...hope this day finds you all doing well and ready for a great weekend. I love Fridays...always seems like a holiday.

I made this card last night from a stamp that I bought years...yes I said years...ago. I don't think I have ever even done anything with it. I thought it was so cute so decided last night was the night. All I did was stamp it on cream card stock and colored it with my Copics. I added a little ribbon and a snowflake embellishment. That's it.

Have a great day...and enjoy your weekend. See you all soon.

Show me Thursday...peeking in...

Hey all...well, the good thing about Thursday it that it makes me clean up my scrap space. It was a big ole mess this morning and I was trying to work on some things for gifts and I had no space. I usually look at it as organized chaos...but there was no organized to it just lots of chaos this week.

I have been working on several things...a little coloring and a little crafting. Trying to get back to scrapping before the holidays. Would love to get last years Christmas album done before Christmas 10 gets here. What do you think my chances are of that happening!?

Thanks for stopping gave me a good excuse to do a little house work.

Tis the 8

Yip...tis the season that I am always trying to figure out little gifts for "secret Santa" gifts or holiday favors. I have decided that half the fun of the gift is the cute wrapping or bag. Sooo that being I did some easy peasy things to wrap or use for that secret Santa gift.

The little bag is just a small paper bag. I gathered some Stampin Up ribbon around a big button for the top and added the mittens from the New Jolly Holiday Cricut Cartridge. Now that is a fun cart and I guess it is hard to find...(I found mine by accident at Walmart when i was supposed to be getting groceries!)

I wrapped some tic tacs up in vellum and just tied a cute tag on...the tag is from Winter Woodlands...cut at 3 inches. Any kind of little box or bag of goodies seem more special if you add a handmade tag or label to it. The tags were just a Stampin Up stamp and I matted them and tied some cute string on. That is it for today...thanks so much for stopping by. Let me know if you have any questions.

Have a great day!

Holiday 7

Been feeling like such a slacker lately...been trying to do too many things at one time and not doing justice to any of them. Ever had days like that. Well...back up to the craft room today after a 3 day layoff to decorate the house for the holidays. I think the house is about done and I am about done in!

For my post today I made a little sample of all kinds of treats that are so great for class room gifts...Sunday school gifts...just anyone that you want to give a sweet treat to.

I used the Tags Till Christmas....from Stampin Up. Love that set...have used it a lot already. Love the punches that go with them too. The tin and the square cylinder came from Paper Trey Ink. Such cute containers to decorate.

Please enjoy and stop back soon.
