plain old happy holidays

Just a plain old happy holiday card...nothing fancy...I am really loving this paper pack by provo craft that I got at Michale's...so many beautiful papers! I think if I were to do this card again I would emboss the happy holidays. The happy holiday stamp I got at Michael's for a buck!! gotta love a good deal. The pretty ribbon is also from...where else...Michale's

another door hanger

With this door hanger I painted it white first then mod podged the scrapbook paper on it. If you look closely you will see it is very glittery...like snow... I spayed the whole thing with spray adhesive then drenched it in Martha Stewart crystal fine white glitter. After that dried, I added the snowflakes...punched from white paper with the Martha Stewart snowflake punch & added some ribbon. The paper is from a holiday paper slab by Provo Craft that I purchased at Michale's.
A little bit of snow in Arizona!!!!

Happy Birthday to Danielle

Happy Birthday to my friend Danielle at work!! This is actually much prettier in person...again having trouble with the photography:-(
The paper....not sure where it is from...it is so beautiful (I have been saving it) the flower paper is a bit shimmery & the dot paper is actually a little fabric feeling with raised gold dots. I believe the flowers are from the scrapbook barn the paper probably is also the pearls are from stampin up...the wrapped up candies are the Hershey's chocolate toffee with Almonds nuggets. (the only ones with gold paper) That's it! very quick & easy!

Funny little santa

I actually need to make a few of these...so the cards are very simple to go with the baskets.....again the paper is from Michale's...actually I believe every single thing is! I don't think you can see it very will, but I put little tiny stickers in the center of all the snow flakes for a little sparkle. These are just so fun & easy to make!

Snowmen & Candy

Finally another crafty day!!! I had to work Saturday & then Sunday I had to shop for the grocery's....had not even purchased my turkey yet! Then...Could not even craft until I cleaned my crafty room :-) Anyway...This simple card & candy basket are meant to go together with the little matching candies.The little snowman & tag punch are from stampin up, the paper I found at Michale's...a whole book of coordinating papers. And of course the The Marve oval gigga punch.

The Santa is stamped in stampin' ups rose red. The ribbon is from Michale's. The finished card size is 4x5 1/2.

My new favorite card!

O.K. this is my new favorite card! It is totally & completely my own Idea! I used a piece of chipboard for the square. covered it with scrapbook paper...punched tiny holes for the rings. The cute little tags I got at http://www.impressrubberstamps.com/ the paper I got at Michale's it comes in a holiday pack with 36 sheets of corridnating papers from Hot off the press.

Joy to my little snowman

Here I go again with the mod podge! I found a new brand that I just love. It is the Martha Stewart brand....It is a little thinner...comes with a brush attached to the lid & it is clear. I also love these little paper packs you can get. I love that the papers coordinate with each other so well & they are small which is perfect for cards & crafts! The pads are 6x6 size with 36 pages of paper! I ordered it on line athttp://www.impressrubberstamps.com/ they have lots of cool stuff! & Caryn if you are reading this it looks like they have some brown Stickles!

Hello Mr. Snowman!

This is another of Michale's wood chip cut-outs. I painted it white first...sponged stampin' ups soft sky ink around the edges... mod podge a piece of scrap paper for his hat...added felt for the hat trim & scarf...show flake buttons from Michale's (with the shanks cut off) sponged his stick arms with stampin' ups Chocolate chip. Little hole paper punch for his eyes & orange paper cut for his nose & edged with Chocolate chip ink. He's a little cutie!

Christmas Mod Podge

Ya Hoo!!! I finally get another crafty day!! and I am on a roll. Got my holiday candle going, got it's a wonderful life in the DVD player and my crafty stuff is everywhere...just the way I like it!

My first project is another door hanger. All of the paper & embellishments are odds & ends from Michale's. For the stocking & the JOY blocks on the top They are just cut from any patterned paper & made into a sticker/embellishment. If the paper is thin I add a scrap piece of heavy card stock to the back (using my Xyron)to give it some body & then I add a little crystal effects to it so it's a little 3D. I do this allot instead of purchasing stickers.
