I started my card making by using stamps....and since I was introduced to the Cricut...I haven't stamped very this class is re-energizing my stamping bug~!
The past few days we have been working on Resist stamping is a card I made with this technique.
I hope to post some more samples from the class in a few days! Let me know if you all are interested in more stamping projects from me...

2011 Holiday Planner - Pages 2 and 3

Hi my crafty friends! I have been so busy this past week, but I was able to put together the next 2 pages of the my holiday planner. I am working on pages 2 and 3, which will be for Thanksgiving.
I like to have a November calendar and a menu area for my Thanksgiving menu planning. This helps me put together my shopping list when I start preparing. I also like to look at the previous years planners to gather some ideas if I can't seem to come up with anything...but my family really likes to have the same thing every that makes it a little easier for me.
Well, on to the planner...
There are 2 pages for Thanksgiving, the left side is the calendar and that cute little
turkey from Create a Critter cartridge, and the right side is the menu page.
Here is the video with a little more information for you....
Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!

2011 Holiday Planner - Cover page

Hi my crafting friends! Well, the weather finally got a little coolier here in St. Louis and I am now in the fall mood! Yeah!

So to kick off my fall mood!!!, I am going to start on my 2011 Holiday Planner. I have been making these planner for several years. I use them starting with
Thanksgiving and right through the Christmas holiday.

This year, I decided to let you all join me during my creative process in creating the planner. So each week or so I will be doing a video for each page in the planner until it is complete. So I should be done in time for Thanksgiving.

Does that sound like fun? I hope lets start off with the cover of the planner.

I am using Winter Frolic for the images on the cover. I just love that cartridge, I puchased it late last year and really didn't get a chance to use it the last holiday season. I am also using paper from a holiday paperpack I purchased last year from DCWV, so I'm not sure if it is still available this year, but I'm sure you all can find something you all just love, if you plan to follow along.

So let's get is the video for the cover page of my 2011 Holiday Planner. Hope you enjoy!
