Merry First Christmas!!!

 It will be the first Christmas for my son and I am so excited to share my traditions with him. I made him a stocking and that was always the best part of Christmas for me growing up so I hope he will love it as much as I did! We took our family pictures with him in a santa hat- too darn cute!!!!
I made this layout using mostly Holiday Style by October Afternoon, which I am in love with this year! The background paper is by Imaginisce from this year's Christmas line. The letters are from Basic Grey (Papyrus).

The cards are mailed, the baking is done, the gifts are, time to wrap! I don't think I will be creating before Christmas so I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas spent with those who matter most! If I am lucky, I will be blogging again before the New Year. Cheers!

Doodlebug Christmas Cards 2013

 Doodlebug products are downright my favorite! I love the colours and the whimsical characters in the lines. The best part is that you can mix and match lines because the colour palette stays the same year to year. I added some bling, stickles, and twine to the cards. I also pop-dotted elements to add dimension. The final Christmas countdown is more week!

More Christmas Ideas!

 I have not posted in a bit but I am still working hard on my Christmas crafts! I made this ornament which might be my yearly ornament for this Christmas- IF I can make more in time! Thanks to my Xyron and strips of paper I covered a paper mache ball. Then I sprayed it with glitter mist and added the decor.

 I was fooling around with washi tape last night and made this simple little card using Doodlebug- my fav!

Here is the last card I made using October Afternoon paper. Again stickles were used and the sentiment is chipboard. How can you tell I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that blue snowflake paper!!!

Well, it is officially less than 2 weeks until the big day...........EEEEKKS!

Holiday Style Christmas Cards

I said I was on a roll and here I am with 2 more cards! Yahoo! With Christmas only 3 weeks away it is time to motor on these cards!!! I used October Afternoon to make these two cards. I really liked the sheet with all the pictures and words since they can be cut apart to make quick and easy cards. By adding some pearls, stickles, and a bow, I've got a pretty cute card! Pop dotting elements helps to give dimension and interest. The Scrapbook & Cards Today blog has the cutest project idea by Virginia Nebel posted today. I am hoping I can try it out this week.....we shall see if time is on my side!

More Christmas Cards!

 Ok, so here are two more cards made with my old stash of papers. I started going thru my bins and I really need to use my supplies! They just keep coming out with the cutest papers- almost too cute to use! But I am determined to make use of some of these older lines to make room for the new. Above is Echo Park and below is October Afternoon, both from last year. I used a Martha Stewart punch for the pine branches and added some stickles. Below I added some pearls and some stickles, plus I pop dotted the snowman. I feel like I might be on a roll! Yahoo!
