My Christmas Tree!!


It usually takes me about a day and a half or two days to decorate my tree. This year my dear hubby spent about 8 hours helping me and it was finished in 10 hours!! That is a record! There are SO many decorations on this tree that you dont have to space them out. You just put an ornament on EVERY branch or sometimes 2 ornaments and that is it! Hubby rolls his eyes at me a bit since I am kind of anal about the way the tree needs to look. It pretty much looks the same every year, but I do tend to change the color of the tulle and ribbon every year or two.

Some of the pics are blurry and I apologize but I hope you enjoy them anyway!

Christmas Planner

This is the outside of the planner. I used puff paint for the roof, chimney and windows. I added glossy accents to the windows. There are tiny glass beads on the roof and chimney top.This is the inside of the book. Yes, it is a little bulky, but I like that uneven and bulky look.This is one of my favorite dividers. I love the lace and all the glass beads.Last page in book

Mickey Collage LO

Have you ever needed a way to use several pics that just didnt have a home of their own? I have tons of those and this LO was a perfect way to use quite a few of those!
I really like the way this one turned out. I cut the Mickey head shape by hand and stuck the photos to it then trimmed it and added the black mat.

Once upon a Time

This is going to be my anniversary card to my hubby, I think. I want to put something inside like "I met my prince" or something to that nature!

Simple Welcome Baby Card

Here is a very simple card I made. I love using the Cuttlebug and the Swiss Dots folder is the greatest! I also used the Fiskars Threading Water punch on the bottom of the card.

New Goodies!!!

Last night while shopping at walmart, we walked down the craft isle and I saw these punches. I just 'had' to have them!! I am still looking for a 1 1/2 inch circle punch and a 1 3/4 scalloped circle punch. Maybe I will happen upon them sometime, until then I will 'play' with these!

Cocktails Waterfall Card

I just bought the $1.00 stamps at Michales about 3 days ago and wanted to use them, so I thought a waterfall card would be the perfect way to try them out!!

Candy Boxes

These little boxes are the perfect size for the small Kit Kat bars and other treats!! This is another creation of chicnscratch. I love making these little goodies. This one was a little more tricky because the outside didnt want to fit perfectly after it was scored! It could have been because some of the measurements were in 16ths. ;)

Celebrate Tag Box

Just a little Tag box with some tags. Another very simple box, but I love the colors even with no designer paper!! I will have to say that the white gel pen is just an awesome little tool!!

Nugget purse

Are these not the cutest?!!
Very simple to make and so cute!! I cant wait to get some miniature candy bars to tuck inside and give away!!

Stationary Box

I found the instructions for this somewhere on the net. Can I just say that, this box is awesome!! I love it!
It really wasnt hard to make and it makes a big statement. I made this box for someone very special. I hope she enjoys it as much as I enjoyed making it!
