Tis the Season

I know, I know Thanksgiving isn't even here yet and I am already starting to think about Christmas. Does time fly by as fast for this time of year, as it does for me? Whew!
The project for today is a tradition in most families - Reindeer food. For those of you that haven't heard of it, basically you take oats and sugar sprinkles (this is safe for animals, so we don't use real glitter) and put it in little bags. Then on Christmas Eve night, you sprinkle it in the yard and when it is gone in the morning, the kids know that Santa's reindeer have been there.

I made several of these to give as gifts (great for the classroom)

I took 1/2 cup of oats and 2 tsp of sugar (1 red and 1 green) put them in a clear bag and sealed them. The toppers are made from layered SU supplies. The Rudolph stamp is from SU bingo bits. I used chocolate chip ink for Rudolph. The layers of paper are crumb cake and real read that I sponged chocolate chip ink around the edges. I printed the poem on the computer.

Rudolph's nose is a self adhesive gem that I purchased at the craft store -or you can use an I-rock gem

Happy Holidays to you all.
Thanks for stopping by, I'll see you again soon.

So glad you stopped by. I just had to share my latest project -treat bags. I made these for my daughter's competitive twirling team (their colors are lime green and zebra print)

This is also the first project that I made on my new Cricut Gypsy (love it!!!) If you have, or get a gypsy and register it before October 31, Provocraft is giving away 6 free additional cartridges on a download November 1st -Woo Hoo!!! This is a total of 8 carts worth (2 come with the gypsy already) Thank you provocraft!!!! You can check out Gypsy promo for all of the details.

OK, back to my project :0)

Here are the "twirl or treat" bags for the girls. Black cardstock base from Stampin UP! Zebra paper is from open stock at Hobby Lobby. Font is Gypsy Font and the rhinestone (dot for the I in "twirl) is also from stampin' Up! The actual bags are from Clearbags I have ordered several things from them and they are wonderful to work with!!! Check them out :0)

Sprint to the finish...

OK, for those of you who personally know me, I'm sure this title got your (I am anything BUT a way, not me!) Actually the finish line I'm referring to is a huge (well for the area I live in) craft fair that I am participating in this coming Saturday. I took a brief inventory of what I have made, and I need to make so much more...ACK! My posts will be very light this week, with my focus on Marathon crafting.

Next week, I will share with you what sold great, and what didn't. I am hopeful though, I was at a crop Friday night making more altered notebooks and I sold four of them right there. This was really impressive since there were only four people at the crop (My mother and I were two of them). And no, Mom didn't buy any, in case you were

Thank you all for your support and sweet, sweet comments. I really appreciate it.

I'll see you soon! Thanks for stopping by,

Thinking of you

Hello, and thanks for stopping by,

This is another simple card (that's pretty much what I

All products used on this card are from Stampin' Up!. The stamped image and sentiment are from the Hostess set, Silhouette Sentiments. I just love the delicate designs in this set!

I used 1/2 a sheet of whisper white card stock for the base (folded in half for a 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 card) I then layered taken with teal card stock (5 1/4 x 4) and finally a layer of designer series paper (5 x 3 3/4). I stamped the image, trimmed the card stock around it and tore one side. I then cut a piece of taken with teal card stock and made it a little larger, also tearing it on one side. I mounted the image and cs with dimensionals and added some 1/4 inch whisper white grosgrain ribbon. I also added SU's self adhesive pearls as a little accent to the flowers. I just love SU's self adhesive rhinestones and pearls, they are excellent quality.

Well, I'm off and running...
See you soon! Thanks for stopping by,

My Three Bears

Hello and Happy Monday!
I wanted to share my three bears with you...

Yep, you guessed it, Create a critter (sorry, I'm addicted). SU card stock and designer papers. I layered another My Pink Stamper sentiment onto a scallop punch and I used the paper piercer this time instead of a gel pen. I will have some more Holiday projects for you. I am getting ready for a craft fair the first weekend of October (I cannot believe how fast the year is going by)

Thanks for stopping by, I'll see you soon!
