Stampin’ Sunday 12-28-08

This is a fun Christmas book I made using the same pattern as the Family Book.wish-album 

It uses the I wish simply scrapin’ kit.  If you would like one of the kits you can order one for $20.00.  (I can ship them for an additional charge.)  Please let me know ASAP as I’m not sure how long the simply scrapin’ kit will be available.

The original pattern was created my up-line Janice Barlow.

Freewheeling Friday 12-26-08

I really wanted to try the Christmas Chatter wheel.  Here’s the card I came up with.  ho-ho-ho

After I wheeled the back ground I made sure the wheel was all inked then I colored just the words ho ho ho with the chocolate chip maker.  Then I rolled it on the vanilla card-stock and punched it out with the large oval punch.  I used the tag punch behind it.   I used the blender pen and touched it to the markers to color the Santa.  I used the white water color wonder crayon for his beard and fur.  I think it turned out cute.  I like how I could highlight just one sentence from the roller to use as my saying on my card.

Thrifty Thursday 12-25-08

I love to have new ornaments for my tree, but I can’t always afford to by them.  I actually love to make them.  I made these fun Rudolph Ornaments for my tree last year.  They were quick and easy and didn’t cost a lot to make.  roudolph-ornament















It is made with all punches.  I used: large oval, word window, five petal flower, horizontal slot, double circle and  1″ circle.  I used the coluzzle for the background circle.  His nose is made with a rhinestone circle brad.  Then a little ribbon for the holder and a bow at the neck.  I got the idea from a card that someone had posted on the Stampin’ Up! demonstrator web site last year.  They had it on a card.  If I can find my card I will post it for you as well.

Wacky Wednesday 12-24-08

merry-christmas-ornamentThese are some of the last minute Christmas decorations I made for my tree.  I actually made them on Christmas Eve.  I waited to put most of the glass ornaments on until the last minute so that Xander (my one year old) wouldn’t get a hold of them.


They were really easy to make I just used the rub-on’s on the clear glass balls.  I found that the smaller ones and the long ones were a lot easier to do.  I did a couple of square sayings and they were difficult to get on without overlapping.
