Christmas Cards

December is right around the corner! Have you all started your Christmas shopping yet? I just wanted to share more cards I made for the holiday season! I used some Christmas chipboard I found from last year! And I also got the layout ideas from the Paper Craft holiday magazine from last year as well.

These were really fun to make using all kinds of embellishments. 
Thanks for your visit!

Thank you cards

I decided as part of my Christmas gifts this year...I'm making thank you cards that people can use to thank for their gifts! :) Made them all clean and simple since I made more than one of each. (Won't have time to make too many one-of-a-kind cards.)

I made 5 of these...just took a pic of one. 
Used the Dandelion duck stamp again and got the sketch from http://cleanandsimplestamping.blogspot.com/2010/12/121.html">here.

Made 3 of these using another Dandelion stamp. 
Got sketch from here.

Made 2 of each using the same layout...using a Two Scoops Rice Designs stamp. 

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy early Thanksgiving everyone!

Happy Holidays!

Hello! Can't believe Thanksgiving is in a few days! Where does the time go?? So much to do and not enough time. Anyways, today starts another challenge at Lollipop Crafts! The challenge is "Anything Goes" so I hope you can all participate! I'm still trying to finish up Christmas cards for this year so I thought I should make one. Used an old sketch from Got Sketch?.

Be sure to check out the rest of the DT creations here. And also our guest designer for November, Ashley Walker.
Hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your families!

Peace on Earth

Made another Christmas card using a Clean & Simple layout. It was super easy since I used DP instead of coloring an image. At the same time, I wasn't used to making something looking so serious! :) I embossed the background and sponged red ink on.

Thanks for your visit today!

Christmas Gift Card Holders

Just a quick post to share some gift card holders I made to use for Christmas! Used a stamp from Dandelion designs and got the tutorial for the holder from here. Made 4 for now...hopefully I can make more. Not a big fan of mass producing! (Haha, not like this one was that big!) I usually like to make one-of-a-kind creations! :)

Here's the 4 front view...

and the inside...
the top is for the message and the bottom for the card. 

This was really fun and simple to make! 

I also wanted to share the matching gift tag for the card I made here.

Thanks for stopping by and hope you're all having a great weekend so far!

Sweet Wishes

Wow, November seems to be flying by...it scares me how fast the holidays are coming up!! Anyways, today is another challenge at Lollipop Crafts! The theme is to use embossing (heat, dry, etc.) and no patterned paper. 

Used an old sketch from Sketch For You To Try. Please check the other DT creations here. Have a great Monday everyone!

Christmas Bear

Finally had some time to do a challenge for fun!! Trying to get some Christmas cards done...I can't believe it's November already!! I participated in the challenge at Ribbon Carousel. Their theme this week is anything goes as long as you use something that comes from a spool. I used a little twine. Also, used an older sketch from Mojo Monday.

Still trying to find a good place to take my pictures! :( This will have to do for now. Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend so far!

I'm back...

You may have seen my recent posts for Lollipop Crafts but technically I haven't been able to blog for a few weeks and I'm finally back! For those that I did not get to share with yet (and I'm sorry!), I was in the process of moving from Honolulu,HI to Henderson,NV (Las Vegas!). It's been a great experience so far! Thanks everyone for visiting, your encouraging comments and your support! I don't have any of my creations to share with you today but I do have some great creations by some talented ladies to share! (they are long over due!)
