Nice little Stocking Stuffer

Aren't these cute? These are lip gloss holders. I had a bunch that were made in non-Christmas papers too but I sold all of those. These are so easy. I found the instructions while blog surfing and I'm sorry to say I don't remember where. I jotted down the dimensions on a slip of paper but not the web address. Sorry! I usually try hard to give people credit when I CASE something. Anyway, these are made from a piece of Real Red cardstock, some DSP from a retired Simply Scrappin' Kit (same one the Santa's Magic Key) was made from. Wrapped a little piece of taffeta ribbon and stamped a little sentiment and all done. Easy little gift to put in a girl's stocking.

A little nostalgia

This is a layout of my Mom and Dad. I wanted to create something to document their engagement. I’ll use the Details area for journaling the who/what/when/where. I love this layout. I think it is very elegant. I started with a Very Vanilla background and sponged the edges with Early Espresso ink. I used the Swirly die (retired from SU! catalog) for the borders. The flowers are made from punches. The small ones are from the Boho Blossoms punch. The larger ones are made from the layering several of the small Scallop Circle punch out of Baha Breeze or the Newsprint specialty Designer Series Paper. Also used for embellishments is the Top Note die and the Elegant Lines embossing folder, the lattice die, and the Photo Corner punch (retired). I used Basic Pearls in the centers of the flowers.
Supplies: Early Espresso, Very Vanilla, Baha Breeze cardstock; Early Espresso ink
Accessories:Basic Pearls, Top Note  and Lattice die; Boho Blossom, Scallop Circle punches; Swirly die
Stamps: Notes & Details; Punch Potpourri (retired hostess set)

Santa's Magic Key

Did/does your little one ever ask you how Santa gets in to deliver the presents when you don't have a chimney? If so, this is the perfect project for you. I've seen different takes on the magic key but this version I came across here.  I just knew I had to put a few of these together. I used a retired Simply Scrapping kit and whipped out four of them in no time and still had tons of stuff left over.

I'm going through some photos of projects that I've done in the past year and just now getting around to posting. Isn't that sad? I always start out with the best of intentions and then life just gets in the way, you know? Anyway, on to the project. This is a layout that we did for last April's club meeting. I started out with a Daffodil Delight as the background and used Peach Parfait and Concord Crush as the accents. And isn't the Tangerine Tango pompom trim cute? Adds just the right touch. I love that stuff. The banner is just created by using a strip of the DSP for the background and then I cut strips of another DSP wide enough to stamp the letters on. I used the photo corner punch to give the letters the 'banner' look.

Supplies: Daffodil Delight, Peach Parfait and Concord Crush cardstock; Tangerine Tango Ink; Just Sunny Garden Designer Series paper (retired)
Accessories: Tangerine Tango pompom trim (retired); Fun Flowers die; Sweet Buttons embosslit die
Stamps: Broadsheet Alphabet Upper and Notably Ornate

A little bit of Christmas...

I've been creating a few Christmas projects and thought I would share them. Here are few ornaments that I made using either Stampin' Up! reinkers and Dazzling Diamonds glitter. I embellished some of them with rub-ons from my retired stash and some ribbon. I love how they sparkle! I sold most of these but I'm going to make some more to hang on my own tree and to give to my grandbabies. I have a tradition of giving them an ornament every year. That way when they grow up and move out they will have their own ornaments and a keepsake from Nana.
