TGF Blog Hop! Welcome to my blog!!!

Welcome to my blog, part of the TGF Blog Hop!
I am totally in like with The Greeting Farm stamps!
I made a project for each category!

"Let it Snow"
I used Beanie Anya for a snow globe ornament!
I recycled the plastic for my craft foam and tons of glitter!

"Santa, Baby"
I used my new Cheeky Xmas as well as altering
a few other Cheeky girls for some pull out tags!

"Holiday Treats"
I made Gum Advent Calendars!
A minty way to count down the days til Christmas!
And I included a mini tutorial...great friend gift idea!
You will need:
2 packs of Dentyne gum (12 pieces per pack)
Paper cut: 6 1/2" by 3 1/2"
score paper so the spaces are: 1/2", 2 1/2", 1/2", 2 1/2", 1/2"
write numbers on the backside of the gum...
careful that foil is thin!
3/4" circle to cut notch
Tape it down one side
slide gum into pouch!
Then decorate!

Thanks so much for looking!
Leave a comment if you have the time:)
Head back over to TGF for the rest
of the hop and chances to win!

Christmas Anything goes!!!

My Christmas Lolita's aren't here yet!
So I had to improvise by giving my
digi Lilith a little Santa hat!
I think she loves it!
Pretty simple card, but some fun textures!
Challenge #24...Christmas--anything goes!
Thanks for looking!

Classy and Fabulous!

I made this for a friend who hosted a dinner party!
My own handwritten sentiment...I have several phrases
I would just love to make into stamps...but until then,
I write, scan and then size and print!

I am putting this in the Gettin' Krafty challenge!
(use kraft paper on your card...I am out,
so I improvised...hope that's okay!)

Thanks for looking!

Ugly Christmas Sweater Inspired Card!!!

This is my "card" for
The Greeting Farm's Ugly Sweater Contest!
I just had to do it as a larger picture!
It is 10 by 10"
The process was really fun!
I did a bunch of things, and then I thought
"I should stop!" and then I did more!
and that repeated itself several times!

This is the most over-the-top card I have ever done!
9 patterened papers and 12 different
kinds of embellishments!
Even gold wire on the sleigh!

I wanted to do the sleigh with all 9 reindeer!
I actually got the forest friends set and the Xmas Sweeties sets as contest winner prizes during the year--so this was fun to use them together!

I hope you enjoy my hodge-podge of Christmas fun!
I just wish I had a little Christmas mouse somewhere on it!

Thanks for looking!

How Distressing!!!

I love this little Merry stamp from Kraftin' Kimmie!
I am working on a bunch of premade Thanksgiving cards for family!
Even though the prize at the Kraftin' Kimmie blog
is the stamp I already have...
I couldn't resist the distressing theme!

Thanks for looking!
