I guess it is a ways off, but it always sneaks up on me! (= When I saw the cute paper I had to have it, when I had the paper I had to make the card, when I made the card... O.K I'm starting to sound like the book I read to my daughter!! LOL! I usually don't make my own Christmas cards for Christmas. It's just too much work and time consuming for me. I usually make a few, but thats about it! Do you make your own Christmas cards??
I bought a can of chalkboard paint awhile back and I've been having so much fun with it! It can get kind of addicting!! Everything you look at you say " that would be cool with chalkboard paint" LOL! Anyway, here are a few things I have done:
My husband and I both graduated from the University of Oregon and we are huge Duck fans!! We LOVE college football. Today we are heading to Autzen Stadium to see Oregon play UCLA. I love going to watch the DUCKS play at Autzen! So much FUN!!! (= We are hoping for another Oregon win and keeping our #1 ranking!!! (=
I made these cute 1" circle pendants out of wood circles. They turned out really cute! I know A LOT of OSU beaver fans also so I made some of each!
Enjoy your day and GO DUCKS!!! (=
Coater tiles are so popular and fun to do. You can get tiles from your local Home Depot or Lowes. When stamping on tiles always use StazOn ink. I baked these at 350 for approx 20 mins. I also added felt circles to the back.
I made these with someone in mind. I thought they would be great for a beach house!
It's a color challenge over at The Pink Elephant this week. The sponser is Kathy Martin of Digital Doodles!! She has some super cute digi images you should check out!! I used her "Thankful" set for my card. TFL! (=
It's a Theme Challenge at The Pink Elephant this week and the theme is Childhood! My page is a fun and playful layout of my kids! If you'd like to play along with us this week or check out the other design team layouts visit: http://thepinkelephantchallenge.blogspot.com/ TFL!! (=
Here our a couple Halloween projects I put together for very little money. This first project was made using items from the dollar tree: I got my inspiration from blog land!! (= I've been seeing lots of dollar tree items being used for cute and inexpensive projects!!
This second idea was free to make. I had this fabric laying around. I just stuffed in some old newspaper, added a cinnamon stick at the top and tied it together with some rafia! Fun, easy and free!!! (=
Here is an EASY and fun idea for decorating for any holiday. I purchased some inexpensive dishes at the goodwill store - I think I will call it the goodsteal store! (=
Now just add some window and mirror clings!! I choose some from Martha Stewart that include witches, crows, pumpkins and cats! The GREAT thing is they peel back off (no sticky mess) and you can reuse your plates for the next holiday!!!
I got a sweet email saying I had been spotted using Claudia and Company's Adorable stamps!! I just love these cute images from Lori Boyd!! They are so fun to play with!! (= Some of my cards are being featured over on their blog: Here: C&Co. Here is one of them using Ella Lollipop!
My two previous posts also included Emma Puddle Jumper and the newly released Cowboy McCoy!!! TFL!
I thought I'd play along with the Claudia and Company challenge - RED! I used the very cute Emma Puddle Jumper for my card. The flowers were cut and hand rolled and the sentiment: "If friends were flowers I'd pick you!" is from A Muse.
The Theme this week at The Pink Elephant is "Childhood". Our show case company is Claudia and Company. We were lucky enough to get to use two new Puddle Jumper releases from the very talented Lori Boyd! My card was made using Cowboy McCoy!! Isn't he adorable!!! (=
