John Deere Green....

Harvest is finally over for most people, including my family. So I thought I would put together a page that celebrates their work and the machinery they love the most ~ John Deere!! This is a digital scrapbook page that I created using My Digital Studio and some fun fonts that I have in my massive collection! This is my favorite time every year, and miss not being part of it when I can't make it home. The photo was dragged to size of the page minus a little on top and at the bottom, and then I turned it opaque. I think it looks pretty cool - tell me what your thoughts are?

My Xmas Advent Calendar.....

So this is the post that many of you have been waiting all started with one little mini muffin tin, some paper, some magnets, some punches, some markers...and of course...some chocolate!!!! I had seen this done before a couple of times and wanted to try it out for myself. So this is how I made it...I cut large circles out of cardboard (using heavy material so it would stand up to lots of touching!!) I used the Big Shot to cut these out. Then I cut the same sized circle out of DSP that was Christmas themed and adhered it to the cardboard circles. I then used little magnets (2 per circle) and stuck them to the back with glue dots.
Then I placed each circle over the muffin tin hole. Now comes the fun part...time to embellish!
Using Christmas Themed Stamp Sets (all from Stampin Up) and Die Cuts for the Big Shot, and punches too...I got busy!!! I also used glitter, brads, paperclips & ribbon, as well as dimentionals to pop each embellished circle. Then I used the Big Shot once again to cut out letters to spell..."Days Till Christmas" and used my 2 Way Glue Pen to adhere them onto the top piece of cardstock and bottom piece of cardstock.

I punched tiny little snowflakes out and freehanded the numbers on them because I didn't want them too big, taking away from all the other goodies on the advent calendar.
So this is the finished product!!! Let me know what you think! All that is really left to do is tie a ribbon to the top to hang it (my neighbor is going to do that tonight for me) and fill with Choc-o-late!! YUM YUM!!! Hope you enjoyed!!!! I am offering this as a class in a couple of weeks if anyone is interested. Cost for the class will be $50.00. What a great way to celebrate the holiday season!!!

This Year's Xmas Cards....

So I found this cutie on SCS and thought I would try my hand at making him!!! It was so fun to make this singing reindeer card and it is probably one of my favorites to date. As you can see, there were alot of punches uses to create this card, as well as a swirl die cut in the Big Shot. I think my elbow now has Puncher-itis from punching all these pieces out, but now they are done. I have done the card in Soft Suede & Rich Razzleberry, using some DSP that is retired for the carol book. I also searched high and low for the most appropriate sentiment and went for a retired one from Peaceful Wishes, just cause it seemed so darn bang on!!! The gals will be making a version of this card at the next Stampers 10 class!

Peaceful Wishes....

Well here are a couple cards I made using the same layout but in different colors. These are once again 5x5 cards ( I love this size!!!) and use the Peaceful Wishes Stamp Set from SU. The first one is done in Kiwi Kiss & Chocolate Chip and the second one is done with Bermuda Bay & Chocolate Chip. Enjoy!!

Christmas IS Coming...And So Is The Inspiration!!!

So this is a little card that I made using a couple of my favorite standby colors...chocolate chip & bashful blue. I used the new Delightful Decorations Stamp Set from SU, along with some bling I purchased somewhere else!!! This is a 5x5 card, using the ticket corner punches to accent the layers and some retired chocolate chip satin ribbon down the side. Very simple and elegant!! Hope you like!!
