Visions of Sugar Plums

I made this layout for my Jessica Sprague Creative Design Team.  It's made using Pink Paislee SnowDay paper and Elements.  I love the colors in this kit.  If you're interested in learning digital scrapping or learning your way around Photoshop you should check out Jessica Sprague now.  She's offering some amazing discounts on classes and products.  I started with Jessica about a year and a half ago and did not even know how to open a blank document in photoshop, everything I've learned, I learned from her classes.  Go, treat yourself and save some $$ at the same time!

Enjoy the moment

Yet another card with Pink Paislee papers.  This is from the butterfly collection.  I just cut the butterfly out of the paper, the seam binding and brad is from Stampin' Up and the lace ribbon is some random from my stash.  I think I got it at hobby lobby.

Celebrate Today

Another card made with some Pink Paislee Papers.  The tag I cut out is from their mistable line.  Have you tried it?  It's so much fun.  When you get the paper it's all white and you can see a clear "embossed" looking design.  You then use your mistable inks to color it how you like and wipe it away and the embossed area resists the ink.  I used Tattered Angels brand.  Now sure if you can tell by the photo or not, but I misted one half bluish teal, an the other half is yellow.  I also used the same mistable ink to color my seam binding which was white.  Just spray it on, crinkle it up and voila... matching seam binding.  Love it!  The bird, butterfuly and today are just cutouts of the papers.

Encouragement Card

I made this card with some paper that I had forgotten about.  It came about the time I started Christmas shopping and got put away with all the Christmas Bags.  I found it at the beginning of December.  Anyway, it's by Pink Paislee and it's called Daily Junque.  I absolutely love this paper.

Wtih Appreciation - Spice Cake

I made this card a while ago and just came across it.  I don't think I've posted this.  It was made with the Stampin Up Spice Cake kit that I bought from Snowmanlover

Sewing Kit Mason Jars

Every year on Doug's side of the family we do stocking stuffers and maybe a homemade gift or something for the Christmas Exchange.  His family is all girls for the most part, so this is what I came up with for the girls.  Mason Jar Sewing Kits.  Aren't they cute?  Originally I was going to do the Mason Jar soap dispensers, but I couldn't find the mason jars with the old zinc lids (which is what makes them cute in my opinion).  Anyway.  Sewing kits.  Each one has some thread, needles, pins, buttons, floss, safety pins.

Originally I thought I would use burlap, but it makes the lid really hard to screw on because it's so thick.  I'm keeping this one for myself.

Christmas Card 28

I am finished.  I am having Christmas Card Burnout.  I'm so ready to start a new project.  I just had a wonderful weekend with my girlfriends from high school.  Every year we get together for a weekend slumber party and I cannot wait to get started on my memory book.  We had such a great time.

Christmas Card 26

I've had this Gingerbread punch for over a year and forgot all about it.  I made this card this morning and like I said.. no mojo.  Maybe tomorrow's cards will come easier.  Ever have days like that?

Christmas Card 25

I am trying to finish up my cards and losing my Christmas Card mojo.  I wasn't really happy with this card, but it is what it is.  I think the pink tree and the stamped word background was too much with the very patterned paper.
