Let it Snow??

Ok...I am sure you are all as sick of the cold weather as I am, but you have to admit these are very cute!   
 I do love these blocks to decorate, but if you want them you need to HURRY!  We are discontinuing them!  EEK!  So make sure you order them NOW!  They are $3.95 each.  Great way to make a cute decoration using your scrapbooking supplies!

First Page to your Albums

What I do the first of every year is make a cover page for my album!  I have a few of these pages left if you would like them.  They are $4.   OR, you can make your own!   Just grab a paper pack and get them created.  

Here is my 2013 one.  Mine actually have pictures on them, but these are my extra ones.  If you came to my open house each year, you would have made one of these for free!  It is my gift to you!  
And each year my husband and I go out and take our picture on the 1st to put on our pages.  It was something that started for fun, now it turned into a tradition!  lol  
But it is a great way to get your first page done each year and I always feel "caught up" for just a little bit!
And here is my 2014 Page!

Now get your stuff out (or call me to grab one of the 2012 or 2013 pages) and create your pages!

Christmas Table Decorations

I know it isn't Christmas...but I wanted to show you what my table looked like at Christmas.  How fun is this!  I found a truck, tied on a Christmas tree, added a tag tied on with Baker's Twine.  I stamped our names on the tags and taxa!  Cute table.
 Then, last year my husband & I were doing our annual Pottery Barn at Christmas time excursion and saw these Santa mugs.  I told him I loved them and that when I was a kid, my grandparents had these mugs and we LOVED to drink out of them.  It was such a treat.  He looked at me and told me he had them when he was a kid too!  How could we pass up those memories!  So we bought them.  

Now our kids and (someday grandkids) will also have the memories of these mugs!  
Take time to not only remember (and make) traditions...but remember to scrapbook them!  I sure wish I had pictures of these mugs when I was little...unfortunately I don't.  But you know my kids will!  LOL

Let it Snow, Let it Snow...Let is Snow?

Is that an over used phrase?  LOL  The older I get the less I like that phrase, but I think this layout using our ADORABLE snowman from our Cricut Artbooking collection is so cute!
I also used out Laughing Lola paper pack for this.  If you want to make layouts using this paper pack we will be using it in our February groups and you are invited to attend!  

We will not be making this layout, but we will be making cute layouts!  This is the layout my November croppers made!  Yes, that is a bonus for attending my crops!  Check them out on my upcoming events tab here on my blog.  They are all listed there.  

Want to recreate this layout?  I used our Make it From Your Heart #2 pattern 2 along with our Laughing Lola paper pack.
As always, if you need  contact me and I will be happy to get them for you.  I do keep some supplies here at my house...I just might have them here...give me a call!

Great Party Favors!

I have one of these Ring Boxes, but have not done anything with it.  Until NOW!  I love the idea of making these as party favors!  I don't normally give "rings" to anyone so wasn't sure what to do with it.  Now I do!!  Check out this video!

These craft boxes are $ you wouldn't want to make them for a huge party, but to have a little something for a few people.  PERFECT!

Cloud Nine Layout

Here is a layout that was created for my crop last week.  If you attended, you got to make this as part of your crop fee.  I cut out all the supplies and you assemble it! The balloons are from our Artiste Cricut Cartridge and the mustache (that says hip hip hooray) is cut from the Artiste cartridge too, but stamped with our Cloud Nine stamp set.  
It is a special in January, when you purchase $35 in products,  you can get this for just $15.  It is a $46 value!  Get yours in January...because February 1st is too late!
