Well, it's that time of year again. Time to make cards and gifts for the Christmas holiday season. I am sharing with you today a Christmas packet I've made that all coordinates with each other.

 The one on the left is a gift tag, the center piece is a matching Christmas card, and the item on the right is a gift card holder. It was a fun set to make once I decided what papers I was going to use.
Thanks for stopping by!

Just a quick post to show you a couple of other treat bags that I made for Halloween this year. 

I hope you all have a fun Halloween and have lots of little ghosts and goblins visit. I really look forward to it each year.  :)

It's hard for me to believe that my youngest granddaughter is 6 years old today. This is the card I made for her to celebrate her special day.

Pink is her favorite color, so of course her card had to be pink too. And who can resist cupcakes???  Especially 6 of the birthday girl.

It's my favorite time of the year again....and my favorite holiday, Halloween! I decided to make a little goody bag. We all like goodies!  :)

Spellbinders - Classic Square Die
Corner Rounder
SU - Basic Black and Only Orange card stock
Signo white gel pen
Copics - various colors
SU - Teeny Tiny Wishes (sentiment)
3/8" Grosgrain Ribbon
The Dollar Tree - Orange fabric bag

This was a fun little project to make. I hope you like it.

I couldn't wait to show you the project I've been working on for the past several months. I have unmounted all of my Stampin' Up stamp sets (that I am going to keep) from their wood blocks!
Just look at the space they used to take up! The front two bins are filled with the stamp sets that used to be in all of those cases stacked around them. The bins don't take up very much room. They fit nicely on a shelf now.

The front and back of what they look like now.

It was a big job and it did take a long time to get these all done. But I'm so glad I decided to go ahead and do this. NO REGRETS! I still have about 125 sets (not in the picture) that will be sold and donated. A big thank you to Brenda and Lucy who helped with the project! 

Until next time...

I have been asked to be on the design team for Createful Heart Design! I have accepted my new challenge and will start designing for them beginning in the month of October.

I'm looking forward to being part of the team and designing cards for them using their digital images. They will be adding some digital paper, along with their stamp line, in the near future.

Hi everyone! The theme this month for a swap I joined is Christmas in July. Wow, it seems strange making a Christmas card in the middle of the summer in 90 degree heat, but I just love snowmen so it was actually fun.  :)

Here are the products I used to make this months swap card...

SU - Real Red and Garden Green card stock
Strathmore Bristol Smooth White Heavyweight Paper
Hero Arts - Merry Little Christmas Snow Group
Copic - B00
Zig Markers - Various colors

The recipient of my card lives down in Texas where it's even hotter. I'm sure it will seem strange to her while making her swap card too. I also decorated my envelope with a very winter themed design. I wonder what the mail person who delivers it is going to think..... LOL
