Holly Jolly Holiday!

Hello and Welcome!

Trying to get a few of my Christmas pages done. We celebrated Christmas Eve with just Jeff, Aaron and myself by going to church, having our favorite meal and opening gifts. Later, Tyler and his girlfriend stopped by. We enjoyed dessert and more gifts.


I used Quick Quotes' Holly Jolly Holiday collection. The snowflakes are die cuts by Memory Box and were cut from silver & gold glitter paper plus the clear snowflakes were die cut from recycled water bottles.


I was inspired by the circular balloons and the glittery silver and gold from Stacy's Inspiration Photo. This layout is based on a sketch by Rochelle Spears.

Polar Bear Card




Hello and Welcome!

I am so lucky to have a great, crafty friend named Joan. She is so kind and talented. Whenever we craft together she always gives me the greatest advice. This is a card I am sending her to let her know how thankful I am for her friendship.

 

The background was created with Memory Box's Winter Snowflakes stencil and Quick Quotes' blue and violet PowderPuff Chalking Inks. The sentiment is Memory Box's Thankful Jotted Script die cut, love that this die includes a shadow. The bear is George by Whipper Snappers and the snow die cut is by Hero Arts.

Pawsome Pal

Hello and Welcome!

This playful pup from my new Winnie & Walter's Dog-gone Cute stamp set reminds of my friend, Sue's dog, Ginger. So cute and full of energy! I can't wait to sent this card to her.


This card was inspired by Heather's Stampets: Penguin card over at Winnie & Walter's blog (see link below). I love her simplicity and kept the design the same - just swapped out the critters. The sentiment is also from Winnie & Walter's Dog-gone Cute stamp set. The silver heat embossed snowflakes are from Winnie & Walter's The Big, The Bold and The Seasons set. The pup was watercolored with Zig Clean Color Markers.

As the pup stamp is so cute, I couldn't resist adding it to an envelope.

Jeff's Birthday

Hello and Welcome!

We celebrated my husband's birthday with the whole family enjoying homemade cake, gifts and lots of love.


I used the new Pebbles' Happy Hooray collection pattern papers. I love these papers so much I plan to make several birthday cards with the scraps.

The colorful stars, inspired by Scrap Our Stash Blog Super Friends graphic, are the Large Holiday Shapes die cuts by Simon Says Stamp. The title and balloons are a very old die cut by Sizzix. The numbers are die cuts from The Cat's Pajamas. This page is based on a sketch from the Scrap Our Stash blog.

Good Cheer

Hello and Welcome!

For us, the start of the Christmas celebrations is a trip to see the Santa and Albert show at Bachman's. We have been doing this with Aaron for 16 years, but sadly this may be his last show as next year he will be away at college. Here is a festive page of this year's show:


I used mostly my newly-purchased Elle's Studio's Tis The Season products to create this page - the pattern paper, acrylic title, quotes and puffy stickers. I also used Lawn Fawn's snowflake die with DCWV white glitter paper. And the gold glitter Stacked Stars is a die by Simon Says Stamp. This page is based on a sketch from Sketch N Scrap.

Christmas Eve Page

Hello and Welcome!

We had a wonderful family Christmas that stretched over 2 days. Tyler and girlfriend, Shara, joined us later on Christmas Eve (after their other engagements) to open gifts and enjoy some family time.


I was digging through a box of very old scrapping supplies and found several pages mostly done and just needing photos. Score!! I did add my new Elle's Studio's 'Tis The Season puffy stickers to update the page.

Celebrate With Santa

Hello and Welcome!

I love this card as it features two of my favorite and oldest stamps by Paper Smooches. I still remember seeing that cute little deer from the Happy Camper set and falling in love with it. And it just wouldn't be Christmas without Jerome The Gnome showing up as Santa on a few cards.


The background was created by ink blending violet and blue Distress Oxide Inks and then splattering white pearlize paint. Paper Smooches "Celebrate Word" die was cut 3 times, layered together and coated with Glossy Accents. Paper Smooches gnome, from the Forest Whismy stamp set, was colored with Zig water color marker. The deer from Paper Smooches Happy Camper stamp set was stamped on brown pattern paper and fussy cut. A glittery gold ribbon was added for a holiday sparkle.
