Holiday Cards

Before another year comes to an end, I want to share these awesome cards and calendar I received from my super crafty friends/cuz.

This gorgeous card is from my sweet cuz.  White-on-white always adds an elegant touch.

This cute and fun card is from Eva.  Hop over to her blog here to get inspired by her diversified creativity.  And here for her Etsy store.  She's so talented. 

This kawai'i (cute) shaker calendar is by Eva too.   I have it on my computer desk and admire it everyday.   I give it a little shake here-and-there.   Love it a LOT.

Awww, and doesn't this darling pix of Latte make your heart melt?   Totally in love with this sweet card from Eunice.  She is an inspiration to me also with the fancy interactive cards and projects she creates.  You'll be in awe too.  Hop over to her blog here.  Her creations will knock your socks off.

Another sweet and kawai'i card.  This one is from Cheryl.   Really love the bokeh DP and cute little reindeer.  Hop over to Cheryl's blog here and get inspired too.  She comes up with some super cute ideas.

This cutie patootie card is by Cindy.   Love this card design a lot.  "Boo-Boo" by Sister Stamps goes so perfectly and how clever that she added Santa's cap on his head.   Hop over to Cindy's blog here.  You're sure to be inspired with her creativity too.

Thank you everyone!!!  Really appreciate it.

Another Magnetic Coaster Calendar Set and Sleeves

OMG, it's Christmas Eve.  WOW, just can't believe we'll be celebrating Christmas tomorrow.

Sharing another set of magnetic coaster calendars I made.  And dang, I recently realized these are very similar to a set I made last year.  I guess that's because I LOVE this cool crane by Sister Stamps. LOL

Washi paper from Japan
Laser cut "2016" by and from Island Scrapbooking
Gold metallic pen

Our ladies group from church got together a couple of weeks ago at Zippy's again and each received one of the last 3 calendars I posted.   I made these easy-peasy sleeves (open on both sides), wrapped a cardstock strap with the edges punched with a Martha Stewart punch, then topped them off with a poinsettia.

Wishing you all a very MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!

Stay tuned as I have a couple more sets of coaster calendars to share.

Thanks so much for stoppin' by.

Oct / Nov Secret Sister Swap

Wowser, can't believe Christmas is next week.  Unreal!!!!  Are you done with your shopping?  Do you have your tree up?   We've had our Charlie Brown Christmas tree up for the past several years.....LOL, and love it.  Cute and simple.  

For the October/November Secret Sister Swap, we had to make 4 identical cards and send them to Kathy, our awesome coordinator.  She in turn sent each participant an assortment of 4 cards.  How fun is that?  Here's the card that I made.... 

And here are 4 cool cards I received....

Thanks so much for stopping by and HAVE A SCRAP HAPPY DAY!!!

Have a Very "Beary" Christmas

Hope you all had a great weekend.  I went to another craft fair yesterday and got a few goodies. Gonna miss the craft fairs once they're over.   :-)

Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas "Tree"

Woo-hoo, the week sure went by fast!!!!  Only 3 more weeks till Christmas!

I love Penny Black images.  For this scene, I used images from 2 sets.  The cat with the little tree is from the "Jolly Critters" set and the cute hedgehog is from the "Winter Play" set.   I wanted a bit of sparkle so I used glitter paper for the mound of snow.

Other supplies:
Snow embossing folder
DP from stash

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend.

Cute Furry Pals

Got another set of Christmas cards to share.  But oopsie, I lost my list of items I used to make these cards and think I sold this stamp.  Oh well, no biggie.  Can't remember the brand of this stamp but I did ink it up with Copics, used the scallop punch by Fiskars, DP from stash, and sentiment by and from Island Scrapbooking.  

Thanks for stopping by and HAVE A SCRAP HAPPY DAY.
