ScrapFit Challenge #10

I did this layout for ScrapFit Challenge #10 and used Cosmo Cricket -- snorkling paper.  I thought it kinda looked like ornaments and matched the idea of a Christmas Card.  Of course I added Bling to jazz it up with Thickers.  The challenge was to use Cosmo Cricket Paper and a word dealing with Christmas.

24 Ornaments

Here are 24 ornaments I made for my Ornament Exchange group I have been going to for over 5 years.  Believe it or not I used my card making supplies and scrapping items.  I bought the clear ornaments last year on clearance and the inside (that is red) is red glitter from Martha Stewart, the green felt is from Queen & Co. and is felt border.  I have ribbon to hang it from.  They were fairly simple once I got going and turned it into 4 different steps and made them on an assembly line.

This is a single ornament up close so you can see the sparkle and how well it is coated with glitter.  I had to use Future Floor Wax to get the glitter to stick evenly.  Bet you wouldn't think of doing that.

Can't wait to see this on my tree this year.

Trying out for DT on Christmas Cards All Year Long

Here is a Christmas Card I did for the challenge over at Christmas Cards All Year 'Round to try out to be a DT.  I was to use their banner for the inspiration.  I don't usually use these colors, but i feel it came out just as I visioned it.

I also did this card with the leftovers using the same paper and embossing with my new CuttleBug folder from HSN.  I cut the ornaments out of the printed paper and popped them up on some of the embossed ornaments and added ribbon.  I used the same colors of pink, green and brown.  These are really non tradiaitonal colors, but you are seeing them more and more in Christmas Paper.  My paper is made by SEI.

Thanks for looking at my cards.

Busy time of year and Santa

Well, I have been busy creating and have not been listing all I have done. 
I thought I would share my Santa picture with you.  The Men are to old to do this so Jager Meister volunteered, even though he thought he was only going for a ride in the car.  It was tough to do on my own, but it worked.  Santa and Jager were looking at the camera for the stores picture at PetCo and I slipped a shot that is why they weren't looking at me.
I have made a calendar with Kenny & his girlfriend for her November birthday, almost finished an album for my cousin and I think it has like 30, 12 X 12 pages of various events we have done since August, Christmas Cards, Birthday Cards, and Thank You cards for after Christmas.
Have a great season and I will start loading my creations soon.
