Christmas Cards

This year I did not make any Christmas cards but that is ok because I passed this tradition on to my nieces...I did all the cutting and put together cards for my nieces to create and giveaway.  I am hoping they can become scrapbookers and card makers like their auntie :)
This is my niece Valerie she is in Pre-School I made her a list of the people she said she wanted to make a card for so that she can copy their names and Merry Christmas.
And this is my niece Natalie she is in 4th Grade, they both loved the idea of making their own cards after they wrote on the inside of the cards they then decorated the outside with stamps and stickers.

I just want to wish you all a Merry Christmas!

Baptism Decorations

Just wanted to share some Decorations I made for my God Son's Baptism and his Sister's 1st Communion...I made these about 1 1/2 year ago but thought I would share it anyway.

 Cricut: Paper Doll Dress Up
I don't remember the size but I used a 12x12 and the Fit to Page Feature.  I used a gold translucent sheet for the wings and halo.  I used Foam inside a white tin that I bought at Target and filled it with gold & silver tissue paper.
 I used a smaller tin for the table centerpieces
 I used the Prom suit for the boy from paper doll dress up
I also made these small boxes and filled them with hersheys kisses, added a gold ribbon & added a thank you label.

Hope you like these cute & simple decorations.

Scrapbook Layout- Pirnce Charming

Made this for the Scrappy Moms Stamps Terrific Tuesday Challenge - B is for Boy/Sugar & Spice- This week's Terrific Tuesday Challenge cartridge is a two-for - B is for Boy or Sugar & Spice. We figured to be fair we would give you the choice of boy or girl Lite cart. You can use a similar cut to play along if you don't own B is for Boy or Sugar & Spice.

But since I don't have either cartridges I choose something that is similar to the B is for Boy Cartridge, this cartridge has a onesie with a duckie and also a phrase that says Prince Charming.  So this is what I did I made the onesie from the New Arrival Cartridge, The Crown & Prince Charming Phrase from the Create a Critter Cartridge.


Cricut: New Arrival, Create a Critter
Cardstock: DCWV & Recollections
Embelishments: Studio 18 Rhinestones, Glitz Rhinestones & Gelly Roll White Pen
