Doodlebug Christmas Cards 2013

 I managed to squeek these two cards out today between 30 minute naps! I do not know what I will do with myself when my son actually sleeps....knowing my luck, it will never happen! Oh well, I do manage to make a few things here and there. I used the new Doodlebug Christmas collection for these two cards. I added stickles to both cards and pearls. I also used washi tape on both cards. I saw a sign that said 26 days until Christmas...does that give anyone the chills???? Oh boy, time is flying by! I started putting up the Christmas decor and Christmas carols are on the radio now so it is coming, ready or not!!!!

Together - With So Much Colour!

 It took me 3 days to make this layout- good grief! I am still not sure it is complete but I figure I can always change things later. I have been making things- stockings! I am making my son stockings for his first Christmas. He will have one here and at his Grandma's and Grandpa's. I have made a total of 2 Christmas cards and I cannot believe that next weekend is December.......oh dear, I can feel the panic starting to come! Somehow I manage to get it all done but this year with a little one, I just do not know how I will fit it all in. It is so hard to shop with him and he demands my attention for most of the day so when will I get to make cards, wrap, bake etc. etc. I have no idea......a Christmas Miracle!!!
 I used Bella Blvd. Washi Tape on this layout. The stickers are also Bella. The epoxy dots are My Minds Eye. The paper was Carta Bella Christmas paper from last year.

My cat, Taz, always seems to be in my way when I take a photo of my layouts- he is so cute!

By the way, we have snow already and it is super cold so for sure Christmas is on its way!!!

Yearly Christmas Card???

Sorry I have been absent from my blog for so long! I have been playing around with ideas for my yearly Christmas card and had a REALLY tough time putting something together. I bought some of the new Memory Box dies and was trying to come up with ideas. My glitter paper does not seem to work with the dies because the back of the paper is too waxy. So that was making me mad since I wasted a bunch of paper trying to make it work! The snowflakes were done with glitter Doodlebug paper which works best, as far as I have found. I cannot even say where these papers came from- just random stuff in my boxes of Christmas paper....I really need to wittle down my stash!

The goal of my yearly Christmas card is one that is fairly easy to replicate many times and it has to be one that I would not be absolutely heart broken if someone threw out....although I think I would still be sad and just prefer not to know if anyone does! A little side note- I have kept almost every card I have ever received!!! Yes, I have a BIG box of cards!!

So this could be my yearly card..or not, I am still playing! Hopefully I will be back to more regular posting as the Christmas season approaches!
