Here are a few of the Christmas cards I made this year. Most of which were special orders.

All of these were made with one .99 cent sheet of paper and some stickles and ribbon and some matching papers and you made cards for pennies each. I love it and they still look nice.

These were special order gift tags super easy to make using nestabilities dies.

Tim Holts 12 Tags of Christmas Day 5

This is my version of Day 5 - I inked my tag and stamped the pine and added some bling... Mine is alot more plain than Tim's but I like it. And most of all I had fun getting my hands all full of ink lol!

Tim Holts 12 Tags of Christmas Day 4

This is my version of Day 4...I used Broken China to ink my tag. Then I sprayed my tag with Perfect Pearls. I made my own charms with beads I had in my stash. Then I embellished...this was a fun tag.

This is Tim Holtz 12 Tags of Christmas - Day 3. My take on his tag. This was a fun one for me being that I actually had a couple of the products used here. http://timholtz.typepad.com/my_weblog/2010/12/12-tags-of-christmasday-3.html

12 Tags of Christmas Day 2....http://www.timholtz.typepad.com/ This is my take on day 2. I used my blenders and inked the tag then misted it with water. Stamped florishes and some branches of pine. I added glossy accents and some clear sparkly glitter. I did not have a metal bird so I embossed a humming bird and stamped Merry Christmas. Added some black vintage velvet trim and some silver beads and voila! That's my take...

Day 1 of Tim Holtz 12 Tags of Christmas.

This is my take on his Christmas tag.

I used plain old manilla folders to cut

my tag out I was able to get six out of

one folder. Then I purchased a .29 cent

Christmas pick at M's and the fence at J's.

I cut the house out of cardboard I purchased

from Printworks. Made the wreath out of

twisted paper and added a holly jewel.

Used a Tim Holts ticket backwards and

stamped Merry Christmas on it and inked

it up. This was really fun. Thanks for the

inspiration Tim and my bestie Val for

encouraging me to follow along...

This is a layout for Scrap,Laugh, Love Challenge.
One word to describe 2010 - the word I chose was "Unpredictable" my parents re-married after 13 years of being divorced. Well some people never change...My dad is a recovering alcoholic and although he has not had a drink in over 8 years he is still the same angry, jealous, selfish man he was as an alcoholic. Although they jumped into marriage too soon, I am glad that my mom is free from him. She deserves to be happy and no one should hold her back. We are still a family without him and with the love we have for eachother that's what binds us together. Life is not always what you think it will be and it's okay cause we will get through this. We just need to dust eachother off and get back up and live each day to it's fullest. I know everything happens for a reason. That's why we cannot live life with regret!!!
