My Christmas Candle Arrangement

This was my Black Friday find that I made. Went to Michael's and bought the tray, candle holders, and some sparkly floral. Found the silver ornaments at Target. I hot glued it all down on the tray then got some putty so I could temporally hold it on the counter. My kids have knocked off to many things from my counter that I have finally learned my lesson. LOL!!

Happy Thanksgiving

May your stuffing be tasty
May your turkey be plump,
May your potatoes and gravy
Have never a lump.
May your yams be delicious
And your pies take the prize,
And may your Thanksgiving dinner
Stay off your thighs!
Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

Thanksgiving Table Setting

I am hosting Thanksgiving at my house this year wanted to make up some table settings for my guests. I used Close To My Heart's cute Thanksgiving set called CELEBRATION FEAST. This set features Indian and Pilgrim children along with a nice fat turkey and a few other accent stamps. For my color choice I decided to use Cocoa and Barn Red. I also used some paper scraps from our Grace collection. I had planed on coloring in my images with our markers but I just did not like the look so I used plain old color pencil instead. Since these are just for my table Crayola Colored Pencils worked just fine. On Thanksgiving Day my table settings will not be so fancy as I plan on using paper plates and napkins to help cut back on dish washing and easy clean up. :)

Happy Stamping,

Cricut: Fall Wreath

I saw this great idea on You Tube using paper to create this beautiful fall wreath, so I just had to try it!

You will need:

Cricut: Speaking of Fall cartridge (pg 31 in 3" and 5", pg 50 in 6", 8"and 91/2", pg 54 in 4" and 6")

Foam Wreath

Wide wire ribbon ( I ended up using a whole roll for mine including the bow)

Fall Scrapbook Pattern Paper

Hot Glue Gun

Brown Ink

First you will wrap your wreath in the wide ribbon. I hot glued mine one to make it super simple. You could also pin it on. Then I cut out my leaves out with my cricut in several sizes and inked all the edges. Once all my leaves were cut out and inked I then adhered them on my wreath with hot glue. This seemed to be the fastest and simplest way to get them on. When placing them on my wreath I started with my larger leaves then filled in with the small ones all going in one direction. Do this until your wreath looks the way you want it. To be able to hang my I created a loop with the ribbon and hot glued that on the back. I also created a bow with the extra ribbon and hot glued it on the front of the wreath. That it! A gorgeous hand-made wreath that all your friends and family will love.

Happy Scrappin'

O Christmas Tree

I am so off on my days with yesterday being a day off from school for the kids. I feel like it is Monday. Anyways here is another fun Christmas card using the same design as last weeks card just being changed up a little bit.

This card was again made with Close To My Heart's Jingle Paper Packet. The stamp set I used Evergreen. This set has 6 different trees you can use along with two different bases, sayings and a few small accent stamps. Along with the paper and stamp set I used our new Cranberry Ribbon Round Collection and our Liquid Glass to create the clear dots and over the base of the tree to make it look shinny. Liquid Glass is one of my favorite versatile products that is a must have for any scrapper and stamper! For a finishing touch I had to had some bling to my card so I added just a little bit of yellow Stickles to my start on top of the tree.

We all need a little inspiration every now and then. During the month of November I will be posting a Christmas Card at least once a week. Hopefully these will spark some inspiration for you Christmas Card making this year. Feel free to leave a comment and post your Christmas Card inspirations too!

This card was made with Close To My Heart's Jingle Paper Packet and a special stamp set only available in a fun Workshop Kit (see my site for details about this kit). Along with the kit I used our new Cranberry Ribbon Round Collection and our very blingy Twinkle Brads Jolly Assortment. This was a very simple and quick card to create and I'm sure anyone would love to receive!

40th Birthday Card

A scrapbook friend of my turned 40 this year on Halloween. I don't like to give Halloween birthday cards because I am sure those who are born on Holiday's tend to get a lot of those types of cards. Instead I created this card using the Wild Card cartridge from Cricut. I chose the wedding cake card and made it into a 40th Birthday Card. I cut out the card in two colors (white daisy and twilight) inked all the edges in Chocolate and then embossed each card by running it through my Cuttlebug. Once embossed I cut out each layer and painted it with Close To My Heart's Create-a-Shade Pearl paint. This gave each piece a shimmer to it. After letting the pieces dry I then assembled the cake. For the final touch I painted the numbers in the same pearl paint, inked them and attached them to the card.
