My Basic Grey Wassil Wreath

I cut these mitten die cuts out at POTP back in February and finally got around to making my Wassil wreath tonight to match my Karen Foster advent calendar that I made last for last Christmas lol

A Few More Handmade Christmas Gifts

I can't remember where I saw this ornament, but I can't take credit for it as I made a couple last year and loved them so much I wanted to make a few more as gifts this year. These ones are a little different, I added a couple of my own tweeks, the embossed scallop for example and glimmer mist.

Above is a little Post It Note holder and a festive bookmark for some holiday reading. I used all my Stampin Up! supplies for these projects.

Handmade Christmas Gifts

Here's a couple gifts I made for Christmas this year. I absolutely LOVE my new Stampin Up! bird punch!

The snowflake below is an ornament that I will tie some ribbon on so it can be hung on a tree or just as a decoration. I received this as a Secret Santa gift, our should I say, I stole this from Gina when we had our annual Secret Santa tradition at our Scrapaholics Crop (sorry Gina, I just had to have it! lol). It's the coolest stamp! You stamp the image several times and then cut out layers and pop dot them together creating a beautiful three dimensional image. I embossed mine and added a little glitter and bling.

This Year's Hallowe'en Layout I did at Timberline

This year, you and your friend Johanna decided to dress up as half boy and half girl. You designed your costumes entirely on your own. When I asked you what you guys were going to be, you simply responded "Goys". What a riot! lol

A Few More Layouts from Timberline

I loved Stacey Cohen's layout using the Fancy Pants Summer Soiree line and had to case her layout using the transparency and my dew drops. I can't get enough of these little dew drops! They're sooooo pretty and add that perfect little touch to any layout.

Sue F and Iris kept me company and I'm impressed with their stamina lol Thanks so much for a super fun time Diane. I really had a blast! Here are a few of the layouts I completed while I was there.

Christmas Tag

I have been going stir crazy being in bed and having so little energy that today I just had to try to at least do a little crafting so I came up with my prototype for my girlfriend's Christmas tags. She runs her own business and wants to give out a little bag of cookies to all her customers and asked if I could design a little tag to attach to her packages. She will then just have to add her contact information on the back of the tag. These were super easy to make and I find the colouring quite relaxing. I'm using my copics and all Stampin Up products. One down, only 74 more to go...
