Come to Bethlehem

It's kind of strange but I never make any "religious" Christmas cards. I just realized that this year. I went through my stamp sets I only owned one that wasn't snowmen, snowflakes, or Christmas trees and the one set that I did have, I've never used it before.

So I am determined to use my one set and this new one that I just ordered, Come to Bethlehem. I cased this card and will be using it in my card class this coming weekend. I like it, it's simple but nice.

I never want to forget the true meaning of Christmas.

Tags Til Christmas

The last time Stampin' Up! had a Christmas tags stamp set I purchased it but never used it. This time I bought the new Tags Til Christmas set I thought I am am determined to use this set. So this month at my stamp club we made these three tags. They we're all simple but super cute. Make some cute tags this Holiday season for your Christmas gifts.

Cute Christmas Gift Card Holder

I actually hate to give gift cards for Christmas because I feel like they are so impersonal. I guess I hate thinking that I got a gift card for someone so I can cross their name off my list. Not that I think that gift cards are a horrible gift because I don't mind receiving gift cards. I know, I'm just crazy. Maybe its because I love all the wrapping paper, ribbon, and bows.

Anyway even though I don't always like to give gift cards I sometimes still purchase them and give them away as a gift. This Cute Christmas Gift card holder is just, cute and I won't mind using it for a gift card. I found the instructions for it on youtube.

The measurements are 4.25" x 10" and you score at 3", 4", 5", and 8". I used the Cute Christmas Stamp set, the Candy Cane DSP, Real Red card stock, Circle Punch, and the Scallop Circle Punch.

I am in Texas on a little vacation visiting my Husband's family so I won't be doing any stamping this week but I do have one more project to show you, it will post later this week.

Bye, ya all!

Cute Christmas

My goal is to blog about my projects at least once a week and recently I had been doing it more like 2-3 times a week and I was real proud of myself. At least until this past week. I have projects that I have created to share with you but I just haven't gotten the time to do it and I am about to leave for a week to visit the inlaws in Texas. Well I have scheduled a couple of blog updates for this coming week. I hope it works like it is suppose to.

I used this scrapbook page for my last scrapbook class. I used the Cute Christmas Stamp Set, Candy Cane DSP, snowflake punch, Tasteful Trim die, and the large Candy Cane buttons from the mini catalog. Hope it inspires you to create!

Pumpkin Patch

I have had an idea for making a pumpkin patch page floating around in this head of mine for a while but it wasn't coming out like I had hoped so I just started playing with it. This is what I came up with.

Now the scarecrow isn't my idea, it was originally created by another demonstrator, Doris Denman. The scarecrow was made with several punches and the oval die cut. I wish I was this creative. The one thing missing that she had was some crows but she used the medium oval punch from the mini catalog and I don't have that punch. I did make a phone call and Grandma Mary has it so I will be borrowing it from her so I can add some crows to the page.

I will be using this page at my next scrapbook class on Thursday, November 11th. If you are interested in attending make sure to RSVP by Tuesday, November 9th.

My Lil Giraffe

Warning: This is a non stamping related blog post. This is a, I am a first time mom and I want to brag blog post.

Just wanted to share a couple of pictures of my little giraffe at the Pumpkin Patch. Isn't he just the most adorable little guy ever? I just love him more than words can describe.

I am going on 10 months with out a full night of sleep, can't just get up and go like I use to, I am constantly chasing him now that he is into everything, and I wouldn't change any of it. After three and a half years of wondering if I would ever be able to experience being a mom, God answered our prayers.

So during this season of thankfulness, I am so very thankful for my little guy. I just wish I could keep him a little baby a lot longer. Time is flying by way to fast.

I hope you enjoy looking at this cute lil giraffe as much as I do. Thanks for listening to this new mom brag about her baby, I promise the next post will be a stamping post.

Greeting Card Christmas

The Greeting Card Kids stamp set is so adorable. I just had to use this stamp set when making the Christmas cards for my class.

I used the snowflake stamp from the Winter Post stamp set in Not Quite Navy on Bashful Blue Card Stock and layered it on Not Quite Navy. The card base is Marina Mist. I colored the image with my Water Color Wonder Crayons and a blender pen. I also added some Dazzling Diamonds to her coat and hat.

I wish I was better at coloring and shading but I guess that will come with time and practice. Now I need to work on creating a new Blog header so that it will match the fall season and not the Halloween season since it is now behind us.
