Hello Scrappers! Can you believe it is only 2 weeks until Christmas?!! Yikes, I need to get a lot of shopping done still AND finish my Christmas cards that I swore I would hand make this year after "cheating" with photo cards the last few years . . . um, I think it's gonna be photo cards again this year! BUT have you seen the cards you can make in Close To My Heart's Studio J?! They are AH-MAZING!!! Check out my CTMH Facebook page to see what some of the other consultants have done, So I think that is how I'll spend tomorrow night then it'll give me about a week to address all my envelopes so when the cards arrive all I have to do is stuff and seal the envelopes and off they go :-) Now if I can just find some time to get my tree up . . .
I have been scrapping up a storm lately though for classes and design teams, now to catch up and share them with you here. First, the last two Let's Scrap sketches:
I did a single page using the left hand side of the sketch and used some Bella Blvd "Snapshots" paper. This is my girl with her first pair of big girl dangly earrings :-)
The wood word arrows are Freckled Fawn that I got from Scrapbook Nerd awhile back and finally found a good use for them :-) Love them!
I used up a good portion of my Fancy Pants "Trendsetter" paper and pieces AND used my Tim Holtz film strip ribbon for the first time - oh my goodness I LOVE it!!! Such a great addition to any page really, I've used it a couple more times already and can see the need for a refill in the near future ;-) Good thing Scrap Addicts carries it!!
This layout is an accumulation of photos from a few girls days with my DD. They usually consist of her getting her hair done or getting accessories (or just trying on accessories!), and a Starbucks drink. She is definitely more of a girly girl than her Mommy is, but I treasure the time spent with her one on one no matter what we do and hope she'll always want to hang with her Mom.
Staples - always a good cheap addition to a page.
Lastly, here is this week's sketch:
I still need to add some photos to this layout but I did it up using October Afternoon's "Silent Night" line as a Bonus Project for a class at Scrap Addicts this past Monday night.
I love how cute this paper is!
Stay tuned tomorrow for the other two double page layouts using this collection! Just have to finish giving the lovely ladies who took the class or bought the kit the photos and instructions first - not enough hours in the day lately!
