Christmas Decoration Part 1

I saw this at convention and had to make my own version of it! Christmas is my favorite holiday like probably most others. And getting all the decorations and the TREE ready is the best, especially now that the kids are older and can help me! This is part one of what I am making for our decorations. Its using our Decor Elements line. (Vinyl "rub-on") Its really easy to use and for those who like to change it up, which I do, is perfect for decorating your rooms. It can be permanent or you can easily take it down once you get tired of it! Anyhow, the blank part in the middle is for the numbers, which will be hung onto the hook (which I will put on soon). This way, I can use it over and over again. The little boxes are covered with some Designer Paper and I lined the inside of the box so that when the little treats are gone...I have something nice to look at. And the boxes are attached to the canvas with velcro so the kids can take it down to get their treats. I think its great. Looks nice and has a fun purpose!

Thanksgiving Blessings

Thanksgiving is a wonderful holiday that seems a little short changed. But here's a project that I did using Stampin' Up's vinyl (Decor Elements) to jazz up this frame, which I plan on using year after year during this blessed time of year! It was super easy to do. A nice background paper which is one of our Designer Series Paper from our Mini Holiday Catalog, a few branches for texture and depth, and the vinyl on the glass. Thanks for Looking!

Free Standing Pop-up Card

I've been lazy and haven't taken pictures of my recent projects. So finally, here is my free standing pop-up card that I made in honor of World Card Making Week. If you want to know how I made it, please feel free to email me. Better yet, sign up to take a class and I can show you exactly how! The stamp set that I used is It's a Stretch (111586) $23.95 from Stampin' Up! If you can't make it to one of my classes, you can always purchase a "class to go".
