Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to look at my creations...I love making memories that I can share with my family and friends....and especially my daughters. They are my inspirations for creating a lot of these layouts. I love taking everyday ordinary things and making them into beautiful altered art. My downfall is buying beautiful papers and not wanting to use them because they are too gorgeous. LOL. Please take the time to check out my crafts, follow my blog and maybe even scraplift them and make sure you let others know where you got the idea...Love to have new followers of my blog.

Joy of Christmas Layout

Hello ladies...well in the process of getting everything else done for christmas , I managed to get a layout done. I bought some new christmas DCWV paper and wanted to give it a try...I also bought some graphic 45 it.

I used my design studio to weld the title "christmas" I am not sure on sizes but I used Jasmine, teardrop and cindy loo for the title " JOY of Christmas"...I am actually going to add a picture from my mom and dad's party which we had last saturday....we always do there's early so we are not rushing through everyone else we have to see....

I used Christmas / Noel for the ornaments, poinsietta and the holly berry.

I used tim holtz walnut stain to ink everything...I also used Cindyloo cart for the big scallop...

I added lace, baker's twine, brads, snowman and tree button, glitter paper for the poinsietta's, and a snowflake button for the date on the calendar....used twinkle glitter on the holly berry and added some red bubble paint. Hope you enjoy and I am wishing everyone a Merry Christmas if I don't make it back here before then.

Hello again...I am not sure how many of you ladies know about ELF on a shelf....well if you don't It is one of the best inventions to do with your kids at this time of year. My daughter did this in preschool a few years ago and loved it. So When I was at Kirklands a few weeks ago I found this elf and had to buy it.

It usually comes with a book and elf (which you can buy at Target for $30.00) I just bought the elf for $7.00....You tell your youngsters that there is an elf that watches to see if they are being naughty or nice through the month of December..some kids might get scared about that...just insure them that it looks and feels like a stuffed animal but at night she or he comes to life and goes back to the northpole to let santa know if he or she (your kid) has been good or bad. Then in the mornings returns in a different spot. This is the 1st year I started this at home and My daughter loves it already...she got to name the Elf which she named Jinglebells...I got her a girl elf. There were boys. You can get what you want.

Anyway...I asked my daughter to get her bath, brush her teeth and pick up toys yesterday and I never got a "NO".....She is 6 and very good but sometimes doesn't want to do what she is told...just like any child.

I hate lying about Santa and making up a pretend elf...but she really believes! When she is older I will tell her but for now I am enjoying the magic in her eyes and in her heart...I hope you all enjoy.

Warm Wishes to you!

Hello ladies...This is my last christmas card for today. Very simple ...but I love how it turned out.

I think I used Christmas / noel for the cup...Pddu for the spoon and the swirl also came with the cup.

I cut 1" squares and glued them to a black background to make it pop. Inside is a stamp that says warm holiday wishes.....told you it was simple...enjoy your day!

Stockings were hung!

Hello again...getting sick of all my christmas cards..LOL.well I only have a few more left. I always try to make them all different, can't see making 50 of the same boring for me...hehe. This one I really enjoyed making...

Used JOTS to make the stockings cut @ 2"

Bakers twine, ms border punch, inkadinkado stamp (inside), DCWV holiday collections which I got a few days ago. Used gold and white gel pens.

Thanks for stopping by.

Another christmas card...A wreath with pearls.

Thank you for stopping by...I am showing some of my christmas cards that I made...I want to show all of them so that I can send them out is the 1st of December and It will be Christmas before we know it.

I think this turned out great...This wreath is a ms wreath punch...very simple to use. I added some pearls and added a red bow (which also punches out with the wreath)...I doodled with white gel pen on the bow.

Added scalloped edge borders with the ms border punch.

Also added bakers twine. Last but not least a scalloped doily inked in red.
