6 Days til Christmas!!

Hello everyone! Well, I had to send my Expression back to provo craft for technical difficulties. {{sigh}} I hope my replacement comes soon. Thank goodness for my baby bug!! I made a few more cards and some tags for the kids teachers and co-workers of mine. These turned out really cute I thought. I thought also I'd enter one in MPS challenge since I've been so busy! Enjoy!
This first one is from Jolly Holidays and the sentiment is from MPS stamps. I used my cuttlebug for the mittens. I think the word balloon is from storybook. all were cut at 3"

this one is also from Jolly Holidays (i LOVE this cartridge!). Cut at 3.5", sentiment is also from MPS stamps, Martha Stewart snowflake punch, and some stickles!

My favorite little elf!! This little guy was cut at 3.5" , I used monster mash faces for his eyes and basic paperdoll faces from PKS. The tag I cut from tags bags boxes and more. I printed the sentiment from my computer and cut the tag around it.


These tags (there will be more to come!) were cut from Jolly Holidays and Winter Frolic. LOVE 'em! The tag was cut also from Winter frolic. Thought these came out so cute. Thanks for visiting! Please leave a comment, I'd love to hear from you!!
Merry Christmas!!

Merry Christmas everyone! I just finished my Christmas cards! So much fun and if I do say so, they came out to adorable. Can't wait to make tags for all the goodies! The following are just a few I've made, I used Winter Frolic and Jolly Holidays (which I looked EVERYWHERE for and finally found it and couldnt stop playing with it!) . The sentiments on some are from MPS stamps Winter punnies, and PKS for the faces of the elves and Gingerbread men and snowmen. I hope you like them. Have a a safe and happy holiday !

MPS birthday challenge

Hello friends! I had to make 2 birthday cards and I thought I'd post them for MPS birthday challenge. I used Sesame Street Elmo's Party for this 1st card. Cut him at 5.10" on my Gypsy. I actually cut him out twice and only adhered elmo to the background cardstock. Just Elmo opens to reveal the msg inside.




This next card is from Smiley Cards (free download when you registered your Gypsy before october 31st). So adorable I think this came out. I used PKS Retro stamps for the face, and MPS for the sentiment. I think the inside bubble is from Smiley cards too. I honestly don't remember. I should start writing down my 'recipes'. A little 'fo' stitching, some inking with dew drops chalk and WALA! Hope you enjoyed!



Thanks for visiting! I do hope you all had a blast with Emma and Nikki these past 12 days as well! If you didnt catch their Ustream, please do so....
There are some A- mazing prizes!!! http://www.ustream.tv/recorded/11365392
Happy Holidays!

Happy Holildays!

Well Happy Sunday everyone! It's going to be a great week! My family and I just went to cut down our Christmas tree today, my parents came up from out of town yesterday and spent the wknd with us. AWESOME!! So we had the pleasure of them helping us pick out the perfect tree.

I entered a challenge today (actually just finished a few minutes ago... talk about crunch time!) on PaperPatchCrafts1.blogspot.com . She had a sketch we were to follow, had to be a Christmas theme with a Christmas icon and bright colors. Here's what I came up with. I used George and company for the circle, Just because cards for the Gingerbread man in the circle, Winter frolic for the presents. I used PKS retro faces for the Gingerbread man... SO ADORABLE! This was fun! Hope you enjoy! I'm hoping to post a few more projects this week in my crafting endevers. Happy Holidays!

The following are stockings I made for work, 28 of them to be exact! One for each of the staff on my floor. There's a little cardboard fireplace I thought these would look so cute hanging from!
