My Pink Stamper 12 Days of Christmas

Hi everyone!  Today is day 8 on My Pink Stamper's 12 Days of Christmas.   And for her post today, is my 1st ever video!!  It was a super simple card for my 1st time, but it might inspire you if you need a quick card since there are only 4 days until Christmas.

Here is a photo of the finished card.  And make sure to head over to Robyn's blog to see the video and your chance to win some fun prizes!!

I used My Pink Stamper's Biggie Christmas Sentiments, Art Philosophy Cartridge, Maraschino Twine from The Twinery and the iRock.

Until next time!

Peace and Good Will

Hello everyone!  I have been so crazy trying to get everything that needs to be done for Christmas done, as I'm sure several of you have been too :)  But I think that I am on the right track and feel a little more sane right now.  Of course, it helps that my work is shut down already so I am on vacation today and the next 2 weeks -- LOL!

Here is my Christmas card.  I really went from making cards, to wanting to buy photo cards, to no cards, and finally just had to make some!  Most of them are going out today and I hope to finish off writing a few more to also get in the mail.  Nothing like last minute!!

  • My Pink Stamper Biggie Christmas Sentiments
  • Trees cut at 5 inches; Star cut a 3 1/2 inches from the Cricut Christmas Cartridge
  • Snowflakes Cuttlebug folder
  • Buttercream Twine from The Twinery
  • Frosted Lace and Yellow Stickles
  • Pop dots
I used my Gypsy to flip the trees so the small tree was on the left.  I then had to flip the snow cut that is at the bottome of it too.  My goal was to have a pretty good card that wasn't too hard to put together.  I made 30 of these in 2 days, so I think it went o.k. 

Don't forget that My Pink Stamper's 12 days of Christmas is going on right now.  There are videos everyday (mine is on Wednesday) and lots of prizes.  So be sure to check there every day!

A Few Things I've Made

Hi everyone!  I thought I would pop in to show you a few things I've made for my daughter to give out.  I'm still not done--more food to make and bake :)  I've made my 1st ever video!!  It's going to be for My Pink Stampers 12 Days of Christmas!!  Make sure to tune in every day on her blog so you can see all the fun she has in store for you.

Here's some Mini M & M tubes I've made.  There are 50 total, but they are not all done yet.  The tags came from Very Merry Tags and the Holly Jolly is from My Pink Stamper Christmas Wishes set. 

Then I made 6 more of these fun Peppermint boxes which came from the Art Philsophy Cartridge and the tag from Very Merry Tags.

Both projects have Maraschino Twine from the Twinery--Love that stuff!!

I should have a really big giveaway soon--I am just 8 followers away from 1,000--I can't belive it!!   And on my last post, I showed you some pictures from our office decorating contest, which we won!!  It's been a very busy, but fun time around in my life :)

Have a wonderful day!!

What I've been up to lately

Hi everyone!  I have been so super busy lately as I'm sure so many of you are too.  We worked for a week on making a Winter Wonderland in our office for a decorating contest.  I had the perfect way to make snowflakes with my Cricut, of course!  Here are some pictures of the finished room.  We find out today who the winner is.

My co-worker should be an interior designer!  I made the 'snow' with fishing wire and cotton balls.  I had found the idea on Pinterest--love that site!   And I cut out lots of snowflakes with my Cricut.

I am also working on my very first video!!  I think I need to redo it and plus, I can't show it yet.  But, I will let you know where to view it :)

And I'm in the middle of several projects, which really need to be done in the next week since some of them are for people I won't see after next Friday.  Hopefully, I can get some things finished this weekend and then that will give me some blog posts to show you!

I hope you have a great day!!
