Warm Christmas Memories

One of the wonderful things about scrapbooking is that the holidays are never really over.  You get a chance to play with the pictures and fun holiday-themed paper and embellishments long after the last Christmas gift is opened.
We had such a great time seeing the family back in Las Vegas this year.  The weather was beautiful and the time spent together was magical.

This layout was done using the new Bo Bunny Father Christmas line as well as lots of fabulous Prima flowers. 
This page was all about layers for me.  I used several layers just in the background cardstock alone and then added here and there until I found a collage that I liked (the page weighs like 5 pounds! lol).
Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas season!  Have lots of fun scrappin’ those memories!

Has Christmas Gone to the Dogs?

I had an exciting project this week.  My mom wanted me to make a special Christmas card for her hair dresser who loves dogs.  Hmmmmm….OK.
I started searching Google for any interesting designs and eventually landed on this beauty.  I was LOLing at my computer and knew it was perfect!
I embellished the curlers with Stickles and then made the snowflakes with a Sizzix die.  I used sticker paper upside down for them and then added lots of loose glitter.  Finished it off with a rhinestone brad and lots of tulle.
Inside, I wanted to do some kind of hair-themed statement, so I hand-stamped this unique Christmas sentiment:
I think it was a hit ~ my mom didn’t even send it to her hair dresser for 3 days, as she wanted to show all her friends first.  That’s the best!  🙂
Merry Christmas!
XOXO

Cookie Swap Bucket

Just finished this custom bucket order.  It was so much fun to work on!  It’s my first Christmas themed bucket order and I just love the way it turned out!
I used a lot of the Very Merry line from October Afternoon (one of my new favorite brands), as well as my new Winter Frolic cartridge from Cricut.
I made some glittery Christmas cookies using my SCAL software.  I inked the edges of each cookie to give it a “baked” look.
This tag was lots of fun too.  It’s all about paper piecing!  I made the gingerbread men by hand and added green brads for buttons.  I then inked and stitched the tag.
The hot chocolate tag was also made by hand using my Winter Frolic cartridge and a Swarovski crystal.
Finally, I added this HUGE green ribbon and attached some jingle bells with thread.  Yummy!
