Pin It





Hello!!
Can you believe Christmas is only 4 Days Away!!?? Are you ready!!??
I'm getting there!! =)
I'm stopping in to share the New Any Thing Goes Challenge over on the Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge Blog!! This is the EASIEST Challenge you'll EVER enter and when there is a chance to win a $30.00 Gift Certificate to the Paper Smooches Store, what are you waiting for!!??
I decided to share the Ornaments I've made for the Holiday!! Every year I create Ornaments to give away with my Gifts to both Family and Friends and Beckett's Teachers!! I have made over 20 of these using SEVERAL Different Paper Smooches Images as the focal points of each Ornament!! They were so FUN and EASY to make and I LOVE how NEAT they look hanging on the Tree and the Packages!! =) I've used PS Chubby Chum Pals , Freezy FellasHooties, and Santa Paws stamp sets along with the FellasBorders 1, ChumsOwl IconsScalloped Circles, and Snowflakes dies!!





I hope you like these and that you'll think of ways to use your stamps for Ornaments!! I've used several different Images for the back of the Ornaments too and then I'm able to add a written signature and the Year for a keepsake that will be cherished for years to come!!  =)
I hope you'll check the rest of the Paper Smooches SPARKS DT Blogs to see what they have created this week!!

Special Service Gift Wrapping Inspiration with Paper House Productions and Plaid!! =)

Pin It

Hello!!
I can't believe Christmas is in 5 Days!!
Where has this month gone!!?? I'm up on the Paper House Productions Blog today with some really AMAZING and FAST ideas for ways to create some Gift Wrapping for those SPECIAL Service people in your lives!! Paper House has Several Brand New Collections of the most AWESOME Service Papers, Stickers, 3-D Stickers you name it and they have got it!! They are just so NEAT and I though it would be FUN to use them for something other than just your Scrapbook Pages!! So I've created several different ways that you can use them for Wrapping a Special Gift!! We have also been teaming up with Plaid over the last couple of months so for an added touch of Interest I've used some of the AWESOME Plaid Paints and edged my papers with it for an extra WOWOWOW Factor!! I really LOVE the way it makes everything POP!!
I've used the Stocking Sizzix Die, Tim Holtz Tag Sizzix Dies along with the We R Memory Keepers Pillow Box Punch Board and a Brown Paper Gift Bag!! I LOVE how EASY and FUN it is to dress up Packages for Gift Giving and it looks like you've spent ALOT of time making them!! =) Just another way to get more from your stash of AMAZING Scrapbooking/Crafting Products!!



Hopefully this will give you some ways to make the Service Member feel even more SPECIAL for ALL that they GIVE during this Holiday Season!! These ideas would even work for Special Birthdays or Honors Events!! Don't FORGET to use those BEAUTIFUL Products that you may already have on hand!! =)
THANKS SO MUCH for stopping by today and I hope you have a Fabulous Holiday Weekend!!

Hello!!
I've been following along with the AMAZING 12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist 2014 over on the Ellen Hutson Classroom Blog and I was hoping I'd get a chance to play along!!?? Well I was able to create a couple Tags today so I'm stopping in to share them!! =)
This first tag was Inspired by the Tag from Day 9 that Sandy Allnock shared!! I LOVE the idea of the Texture Past and ALL of the SPARKLE!! So I used the SSS Falling Snow Stencil and then I used one of the Stitched Border Dies from Paper Smooches for a Snowy Base on my Large Stitched Tag also a die from Paper Smooches!! I used the Tim Holtz Texture Paste and then coated it with Ranger Crystal Stickle Glitter!! I LOVE how it looks!! I let it dry and then I added my CUTE little Scene which I stamped using Paper Smooches Knick Knacks Stamp Set and the Warm Hearts Stamp and the coordinating Warm Hearts Die Set which was just release this month!! =) I LOVE the idea of the Snowman in a Wagon while holding a present!! =) I paper pieced the heart and carrot nose and the added some Red Martha Stewart Glitter!!


I hope you like it as much as I do and if you want more Inspiration just head over the Ellen Hutson Classroom Blog!! =) THANKS SO MUCH for stopping by and I hope you have a FABULOUS WEEKEND!!  =)

Paper Sweeties December Release Rewind!! =)

Pin It


Hello!!
I'm here to share my Final Project for the Paper Sweeties December Release!!
I wanted to use one of my FAVORITE set from last month the Happy Holidays Stamp Set and I used it to create a border at the top of my card!! I had to cut the Stamp in order to create it and I LOVE the way it turned out!! I used the Deck The Halls Stamp Set and the coordinating Deck The Halls Sweet Cuts Die Set to stamp the Bird Houses and the Bird to create a FUN Scene and then I stamped the Holly and added some beads and added them to the Die Cut Holly!! I layered everything together and my card was finished!!


 
I hope LOVE the December Release and that you go and visit the rest of the Paper Sweeties DT Blogs to see what they have created!!
THANKS SO MUCH for stopping by today and have a FABULOUS WEEKEND!!

December Paper Sweeties Sneak Peek!! =)

Pin It

Hello!!
I'm here to share the Paper Sweeties Sneak Peek for the New December Sets!!

Sweet Cuts - Snow Time
Sweet Cuts - Deck The Halls

SQUEAL!! You guys are going to LOVE these New Sets!!
I really LOVE them and think they are going to be SO FUN to use!!
I started with the Snow Time Stamp Set and the Sweet Cuts - Snow Time Die Set to created a Snow Globe Scene!! I used my Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Pen to color the entire snow Globe Background!! I then covered the Scene with Versa Mark and then I covered it with Ultra Fine Clear Embossing Powder!! I repeated the process about 5 times to get the thickness that I wanted!! I LOVE how FAST it dries compared to using Glossy Accents or something like that and OMG ~ I wish you could see how BEAUTIFUL this looks in real life!! It is so SPARKLY!! =) Just makes me HAPPY!! I then stamped and die cut the Holly from the Deck The Halls Stamp Set and cut them out using the Sweet Cuts - Deck The Halls Die Set!! I covered them with the Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Pen too!! I stamped some of the Snow Flakes from the Snow Time Stamp Set onto a Die Cut Oval from Paper Smooches and then used Foam Tape to pop up my Snow Globe!! I LOVE the way it turned out!!



Make sure to stop by the rest of the Paper Sweeties DT Blogs to see what they have created!!
