Handmade gifts!

I just love handmade gifts! My best friend's daughter is turning 6 on Friday. So I made her this scarf, a Fun Box(with crayons and coloring pages) plus decorated the bag I put them in. I hope she likes them.

Reindeer Poop!

I was making these to sell at a craft show. I used the retired hostess set Deer Friends and retired Ski Slope DP. I was only able to make a couple due to the fact my 2 year old decided he wanted to eat most of my raisins!!! LOL!

Gift Tags

Another great gift idea. Everyone always needs gift tags. And it was another great way to use up some retired christmas paper that was taking up space. Stamp- Delightful Decorations, and punch!

Custom Coffee Mug

First pic is a bag full of goodies for my trick or treaters. I did the same thing last year, and I had some left over all ready cut out. Cute way to hand out goodies and get rid of scrap/retired paper. The next pictures is a coffee travel mug that unscrews on the bottom so you can put in your own paper. I got the idea from Dawn's Stamping Thoughts blog. I made this to send to my husband who is in Iraq. Its a great idea for out of state family because you can send them a new insert every couple of months.

Xmas cards in gift form

A really cool gift idea. Stamp out some cards along with some envelopes and booyah! I got the idea from my Mama Sue who is my crafting goddess. The second card is the results of just playing around with the scraps. Cause we NEVER throw away scraps! LOL :)

The Pirate and the Witch

The Pirate is made with Just Jawing and Grateful Greetings stamp set, Ghostly Greetings DP. I did Faux Metal on the coins. The Witch was all punches.

Holiday Baskets

Saw the Pillow Box Bucket tech on SCS, and went crazy!! Now I have a friend who wants one for each holiday so there will be more to add. :)

65 cards out of 2 Simply Scrapin Kits- Christmas Jingle

I made these to sell at a craft show at my church in Dec. I got some ideas from SCS but once I got going it was very easy to make up my own ideas. I used 2 Simply Scrappin Kits-Christmas Jingle, some Very Vanilla paper, and misc ribbon I had on hand. I got 65 cards made with only one sheet of borders and some DP lefted over. Very cost efficent, and FAST way to whip out Christmas cards.

Felted Cardstock Technique.

This card was made with the new technique on Splitcoast. Its called Felted Cardstock. You use decorated napkins. The greeting is from Grateful Greetings from the Mini Holiday Catty. I wanted to do some stitching around the border but my sewing machine is in storage.

Its going to be soo much fun.

I have no excuse!

I just havent been doing much stamping the last couple of months. All I really got to show is this birthday party invite I made for my son's party. Im having a party with my good friend who's daughter is also turning 2 in April. Its a Yo Gabba Gabba/Elmo theme. I havent even gotten around to making the thank you's and the party is next Saturday!! We have ran into a slight problem with our pay so we are cutting back on our "fun" purchases. Can you believe that I havent bought ANYTHING from the new catalog!! Its driving me insane. But unless I get some orders or workshops the next quater, Ill have to keep myself active so then Ill get some fun stuff. LOL

On a different note all together. I am moving back to MI while my husband is deployed. I am very excited to see MI again. All you MI folk need to book alot of parties and keep me busy for a year too keep my mind off the obvious lack of person. :)
