The Countdown is On!!

Can you believe Christmas Day is just 9 days away??!! How did that happen?? I've been busy making Christmas Cards, they are finally in the mail! Here is one I made for Malcolm's teacher at school:

I really love these reindeer, but now Malcolm wants to know why the reindeer on our lawn don't look like these ones!! I used some Fancy Pants paper, Bazzill cardstock, the stamp is from Stampendous, and is stamped using Frayed Burlap Distress Ink, embossed with clear powder, coloured with pencil crayons.

Have a great evening!!

You + Me = Happy!!

Here is my third layout created from SGD's December Scrapbooking Kit....and I LOVE it!!

Every so often the picture in my head actually materializes in reality, and this is one of those times!

I made my own stocking and presents from chipboard and covered them in patterned paper, bling, ribbon, brads, inked the edges and voila!! It is easily the heaviest layout I have ever made!! And I don't know if it will fit in an album it is that thick!! Oh well!

Close ups: I covered these little Maya Road chipboard dinos in ink then twinkling H2Os.

Have a fantastic day!!

December Kit Release Time!!

"It's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas!!"

Today is the day Scrappin' Great Deals releases the December Scrapbooking Kit. And here it is:

I have to say I am partial to the kit because I put it together (with Sheila's approval of course!). So many possibilities as always, winter themed, family themed, Christmas, it goes on and on!! A mix of papers from SEI, Fancy Pants, BG, Pink Paislee and Lilybee. Websters Alphas, Bazzill cardstock, CI journal boxes, Kaiser pearls, Pebbles Glitter Dots, Dew drops, the list goes on and on!!

Here are two of my layouts, one more is started and one more is in my head. (My head was overflowing this month, so many ideas!!)

Layout One: I used some twinkling H20's to stamp the background snowflakes, and I painted on some shimmerz to the snowflake punch outs along with a dollop of stickles.

Close up: Added some stardust stickles to the Thickers:

Layout Two: Loved this Pink Paislee paper! It has a built in resist so I just used my foam applicator and rubbed Tim Holtz distress ink all over it! (three shades!!)

Close up: A Pink Paislee Artisan Emblellishment, they come in a creamy colour and you can paint/colour how you like! I used some more twinkling H2Os to colour it up. Love their subtle twinkle!! I used it on the chipboard swirls too.

Stamped some more snowflakes from Tim Holtz's stamp set in a couple of shades of blue distress inks.

Hope you like them!! Make sure to pop over to Sarah's blog to see her outstanding creations!! This is her last month designing with the store kits. She is such an inspiration, a really incredibly talented lady and super nice as well!!
