Christmas Bags

Christmas is such a fun time with Grandchildren!  I made these bags for them.  Click on the picture to enlarge so you can see the signs at the bottom of the bag.  It's just a little personalization, but FUN.  I used the silhouette cameo to cut out santa's sleigh and reindeer.  I then cut a Christmas tree and star from silhouette online and used the outline to dab in the color.

Christmas Poinsettia

Another of my simple but clean card designs.  I love the scalloped edge, it gives a soft feel.  The poinsettia is a Spellbinders die, the branches are by Martha Stewart and the card stock, ribbon and sentiment are by Stampin Up!  I used an embossing folder to the raised "snow"...

Christmas Card-Ornaments

Another of my original designs.  This card uses everything Stampin Up!  The card stock is cherry cobbler and old olive.  I used the ornament punch and decorated them with gold glitter for the hangers.  Hmm, looks like a hounds tooth kind of card! 
Thanks for visiting.

Christmas is on it's Way!

This is a design of my own!  The santa and reindeer is a cut file using my new Silhouette Cameo; I also used it to cut my side step card...easy as pie!  The background stamp set from Stampin Up is Lovely As A Tree which I stamped then masked the moon and used Night of Navy, Midnight Muse and Baja Breeze to shade the night sky the filled in the moon with So Saffron.  The middle step is snow that I cut and crimped then sprayed everything with Campaign Mist.

Happy Black Friday!

Well, I made a scheduling mistake so instead of being a Happy Thanksgiving post, it's a Happy Black Friday card :(    This scene is actually an embossing folder then I distressed the raised areas with Stampin Up sanding block and used their designer paper with colored core.

This is a side step card cut using the Silhouette Cameo and is my take on one I saw on Pinterest..I added the grass, changed colors and embossing and added wording...

Christmas Time

Getting a head start on Christmas cards; these two are cards cut using the Silhouette easy!  The packages under the trees are 3D stickers from K&Company.  The poinsettia is a spellbinders die.  Same card but different looks.  Thanks for visiting today.

Bird House Cards

I love this new free cut file from Birds Cards.  I've used different double sided papers to make these and placed some of the birds inside the card and some outside; just playing around with which way looks best...I like them all!  I worked with the cut file and have it down to a science where you can cut two cards with everything from one 12x12 sheet.  The roof came in four separate pieces but I played around with them and made is one piece which takes up less space.  I used the Silhouette Cameo I was able to purchase free with the funds I made from the scrapbooking yard sale at ScrappinHappilyEverAfter.

Veteran's Day

Than you to my father, brother, son and husband for their service to America.
For Veteran's Day, I covered one of those black and white composition books and encased the blue star using Glossy Accents.

Thanks for visiting, and yes I realized too late that Veteran's Day is celebrated every year on the 11th and not always on a Monday....

Give Thanks

Good morning!  It's been a while since I posted; been busy with my new venture, BeautiControl,  which is rolling right along and doing well.  In fact today I signed up my second recruit while in Columbia, SC at a meeting featuring Tammy Clary.  Check it out, and if you would like more information, please let me know.
It's Thanksgiving time, even though Christmas is trying to edge it out.  I love my Hand Penned stamp by StampinUp!  The leaves are from Autumn Splendor by Stampin'Up! as well as the card stock and twine.  Thanksgiving is a time to reflect on all the blessings we have received.  I have two gorgeous grandchildren and another due in December; my sons and their families are my most wonderful blessings.

Christmas Family

This card uses all Stampin' Up! products.  The stamp set is Welcome Christmas which I have on My Digital Studio.  The colors are real red and soft suede. 
I saw this on Pinterest, so can't take credit for the design...I did make a change, but I liked it so much I had to make it.

Pillow Box

Good morning!  Hope your sleeping pillow is as cute as this pillow box :) 
I must confess the box itself came in a Martha Stewart package of 20 but I made the white rose and added the pink ribbon.

Christmas Boxes

I have the Pazzle cutting machine which belongs to my sister-in-law, Mitzy, and I am having lots of fun cutting out all kinds of things.  These boxes are the Gable Box then I embellished with rhinestones, snowflakes and stickers.  Now that I see the green box up close, I need to add some texture, maybe a background stamp.

It's a Celebration

I am preparing for a fall craft show and wanted to use as much as possible items I already have.  The owl grommet is retired but it makes a cute embellishment along with the balloons.  I will pace a birthday sentiment along the edge.  The boxes are Stampin' Up! fancy favor box dies.

Retirement Card

A friend and former co-worker is retiring the end of this month, so I made her a card using all Stampin' Up! can't tell but I used a glitter pen to highlight the full moon and tips of trees.  Inside the card I told her that 'they' say retirement is the twilight of your life but not to believe it, it's the best time....

It's never too early to begin making Christmas  cards and gifts.  The box at the top I cut with the Pazzle and decorated with stickers from Martha Stewart and the ribbon is Stampin' Up!
The card frame is a  Martha Stewart punch around the page set.  I used Spellbinders die for the square an poinsetta pieces.
