Happy New Year! 2011 Video Series Announcement

Happy New Year my crafting friends! I have been thinking about what my video series should be for 2011. What I have decided is to feature one cartridge a month. I know many of you have many cartridges just like me and they never get used!

So, for this new year, I am going to pull out some of my older cartridges and some of the newer ones that I haven't used yet and create my projects from those.

For January I will be using "Birthday Bash". I have 2 grandsons with birthdays in February and I would like to get their cards and birthday layouts ready to go in advance...if you can image that! So I won't be so rushed when their actual birthday you can see, one of my new years resolutions is to be PREPARED this year for any special event! We will see how it goes!

If any of you have any special requests for a cartridge, and I have it, I would be happy to feature it during a month. Please leave me a note and I will do my best to feature it for you. Also, if you have a special type of card or project you need help with, let me know and I will try to feature something during the month for you.

I want this blog to be a help to you creating your special gifts and cards for your loved lets work together and have a BLAST this year!

See you on January 1st with a card using Birthday Bash. By the way, the picture is of me and my Christmas present from my husband! Isn't she cute! Her name is Sugar.

I hope you and your loved ones have a safe and Happy New Year!

My Annual Christmas Cookie Exchange Party

Hi Crafters! Last night, I hosted my annual Christmas Cookie Exchange party! We had a super time! Everyone brought an appetizers and we all exchanged cookies! Here are a few pictures from the event...

This is our group picture, I am on the far left.

This is a picture of the table with all the cookies! Wow! They look yummy!

Here is the Italian Cream Cake I made for dessert!
Each year I make something for everyone to take home, this year I made 2 items. This is a cupcake baked in a mason jar, topped with chocolate filling and white icing. I decorated the jars using PTI stamps and cut the scallop and circle using my Cricut.

The 2nd gift I made is a set of gift tags in a small gift box. The tags were cut with my Cricut and decorated with PTI stamps. The gift box was also cut with the Cricut and decorated with PTI stamps.

I hope you enjoyed a few of my photos from a really fun event!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Episode 20 - Christmas Tree Card

Hi Crafters! Well, I have had a busy week, and next week will be just as busy...but I wanted to get my Christmas cards completed this weekend.

This Christmas card is made using my gypsy and my Imagine. The video is a little long, but I wanted to show you a technique to flood fill an image when using your gypsy. I hope you enjoy!

You can find the gypsy file Here

Thanks for stopping by today and have a wonderful weekend!

Someone stole my wreath off my front door!

Can you believe it! Someone stole my wreath right off my front door last night! So, if you make the holly wreath in my previous post, watch out! You need to put under lock and key!

Apparently it is in high demand!

I live in a really safe neighborhood and my house was all lite up last night with Christmas lights! I just can't believe someone would do that!

So now I will have to make another one! I'm not sure if I have the time, but I loved it so much...I will have to just make the time!
