Sunday Scrappin

It's Sunday Dec. 7 already (insert a big squeal of panic). I have so much to do yet to get ready for Christmas. No need to panic I did the samething last year, waited to the last minute and I got everything done. Why do I do this to myself? LOL

Have you checked out Sunday Scrappin yet? It's a creative group of paper crafters of all sorts. If you do any sort of paper crafting (card making, scrapbooking etc) we would love to have you join us.


Yes, I'm still working on my christmas cards. I got loads of ideas it's just a matter of getting them done and mailed. I think I have about 10 more to make, not bad. These two are another ornament design that I created. I really like the pink and blue even though they are not traditional Christmas colors.

On the first one I used the cuttlebug Divine Swiss embossing folder. I made the scallop edge by hand (pain in the butt) and then I heat embossed the word Happy Holidays. The little snowflakes are from cricut Doodlecharms cart.

For this card I used the spots and dots cuttlebug embossing folder. I sanded over the embossed part of the card to make it pop a little more.

I made this gift set. It's Waffer cookies in a tin with a matching card. You can click on the photo to enlarge it to see the detail better. I used the cuttlebug swiss dots embossing folder and the divine swirl embossing folder. The square was cut out using the cricut george cartridge. I think I'm going to make a couple more of these Santa suit cards. I had the 2 embossing folders out and near it was red paper and then the light bulb went off and the rest is history.

I want to thank Crafty Lara for giving me this award. I appreciate all of your comments. Please check out her blog, she is very creative.

Need to get my butt in gear

Have holiday gifts to make

This week's Sunday Scrappin challenge to create anything that has to do with snow. This is easy to do. I have gifts that I have to make that have a snow theme.

The cards are beautiful! And the gift set is so cute! I procrastinated last year too and find myself doing the same this year. Plus we'll be out of town for a week before Christmas so I feel really behind. This year I'd love to make 1-2 hand made gifts each month and be DONE way before Christmas. Though, I said the same thing last year so we'll see... Have a great week!

Your cards (and gift set) are stunning Chrissy, I love the idea of the Santa suit gift pack.

I hope you have a good week ahead and get the rest of the cards made.

Love those cards! :) And I'm with you on the Christmas rush... I do ok with shopping, but the crafting and cooking I always leave until the last few days and then I'm running around like crazy. :)
