From our family to yours Merry Christmas!

Cutie Pie

I snuck in a couple minutes yesterday and participated in another splitcoast sketch challenge (sc155). This is definitely a design I never would have come up with on my own. I wanted to do something "kid" oriented and decided to use "Wild about you" and SU! "cutie pie" designer paper. I had been admiring this paper for a while and snatched it up during the paper party promotion.

Stamp set: Wild about you Cardstock and ink: Cutie pie, purely pomegranate, bashful blue and whisper white Accessories: white grosgrain ribbon, dimensionals, 1 1/4 circle punch

Have a good one!

Gift tags

I made these little gift tags for my son's teachers gifts. They were so simple to whip up and used scraps from my holiday stamp-a-stack.
Stamp set: Tags for all Cardstock: old olive, real red, very vanilla and dashing designer paper Accessories: real red and old olive markers, 1 1/4 and 1 3/8 circle punches, scallop punch, 1/8 circle handheld punch, real red ribbon, dimensionals

Christmas cards

My Christmas cards are out. Most of our family and friends should have received them by now so I think it is safe to post it.
Stamp set: The snowflake spot Cardstock and ink: bravo burgandy, always articoke, whisper white, brushed gold and encore gold ink Accessories: ribbon, sponges, glue dots and snail adhesive

Baby Book - Part 2

I finally got a chance to post more of the baby book. Our internet has been down all day because of snow...ugh and it's STILL snowing. It took my poor husband 3 hours to get home from work and now he's plowing the driveway.
I still have 2 more pages and the recipe to post. Hopefully I'll get a chance to do that later.

Baby Book- Part 1

As promised, although a couple of days late, here are some photos of the 6x6 baby album we did last Sunday at my "All about Babies-Album in a Day" class.
I'm first going to post the first half. I will post the 2nd half, title & last page along with the "recipe" tomorrow.
fyi - The colors look a bit off in these photos for some reason, pages are actually much cuter in person. It could be because it is dark and gray here (again) not the best light for photographs. Getting ready for ANOTHER storm tomorrow...ugh!

Porcelain Birthday

I have been so busy! I finally finished making my Christmas cards. Now I just need to sign, address, trim out the pictures of the boys and stuff...well, I guess they are not REALLY done. I'm also working on a baby scrapbook using the Simply Scrappin' kit "Special Delivery", I'm doing a class on Sunday where the women will complete a 20 page 6x6 album using half of the kit. I'll post some pictures after the class. I always like to be surprised ;) I also want to get started on a family album for my Grandparents...ugh...when am I supposed to get all of this done?
I made this card last week for my sister-in-law. I don't think she checks my blog regularly so I think I'm safe. (Amy close your eyes if you are here!)I was looking to make something girly and this is what I came up with.
Stamp set: Happy Everything Cardstock: Blue Bayou, very vanilla, porcelain prints Ink: Blue bayou, certainly celery (for flower) Accessories: double stitched ribbon, glue dots, pretties kit
