A Couple of LOs

Here are a couple of LOs that I made this week. The first is Gingerbread Boys. I snapped this adorable pic of Max and Evan in their gingerbread sweatshirts that their G-ma (my mom) made for them. I used Cricut StoryBook font for the title and added some little gingerbread boys using Paper Doll Dress Up. It was all welded together and cut using the Cricut Design Studio. The background paper is by Martha Stewart and the strip behind the picture was punched using Martha Stewart gingerbread edge punch.
This one is titled Claus and Co. I just loved this years' picture of the boys with Santa!! I used Cricut StoryBook font for the title and Paper Doll Dress Up for the sleigh, toy bags, and reindeer. I embossed the sleigh with the Cuttlebug D'vine Swirl folder and the strip behind the reindeer was embossed with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder. I used lots of Stickles too. The printed paper is by Doodlebug.

Teacher's Gifts!

Here are some gifts that I made for Max's teachers and for his teachers that he had last year. He just adores them so I made them each a little something. We delivered them on Thursday and they just LOVED them!! I used the Cricut Disney carts for those cards along with the tins and I used my JustRite Monogram Stamper for the monogram cards. The holder for the monogram cards was scraplifted from this blog. It's cute and very easy to make. Enjoy!!

Our Christmas Pics

We had our Christmas Pics taken at JCPenney's this year and I thought I'd share. I just got them back last week. I think they turned out wonderful. I wished I had taken these this week or next because I've lost 12 pounds since Thanksgiving so I'm looking different!! :) Part due to better eating and part due to the stomach flu! Enjoy!!

My Candice Card...

I'm calling this card my "Candice Card" named after my best friend Candice Lighty. You can view her blog here. I need a shirt that reads, " Everything that I know about stamping, I learned from Candice". So, I'm dedicating this card to her. It has stamping, paper piecing, hand drawing, layering, embossing, eyelets, and ribbon!!! I just adore her stuff and I want to stamp just like her when I grow up!! :) Anyways, she got me an awesome gift certificate to My Favorite Things stamps for my birthday so this is one of the sets that I got with it. It's called Merry Christmas? I paper pieced the wall and chair on the stamped image and colored the rest in with my Copics. I hand drew the wood floor. I embossed the background with my Snowflakes Cuttlebug embossing folder and added some snowflake brads and some ribbon. I hope that I did Candice proud!! ;)


Here is another one of my Christmas cards that I made. I only made 2 of these because this image takes a long time to color in. Santa is a 4x4 inch image from Whipper Snapper stamps. Isn't he just adorable holding those two cute penguins? I colored him in with Copics and used my new Snowflake Spellbinders die. I added some bling to the snowflake too. I used my Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder. There isn't a whole lot of extra space on this card once you get that huge image on there but I'm very happy with this card. :)
