6x6 christmas mini

Have you ever been stuck on a project and just didn't know where to begin? Have you ever just went to Youtube and typed in a name , then randomly click a video and follow the tutorial fully without even knowing what the outcome will be? Well I don't. I like to watch the videos fully to see how hard the project is before i commit. Well that's not what happened on Friday. First video I found I opened and started measuring, cutting and scoring what I thought was a gazillion pieces of paper.

For my whole mini I used 3 thin pieces of chipboard, 24 sheets of Countdown To Christmas 6x6 mini pad, 7 sheets of Recollections Christmas Noel Stocking Stuffer 12x12 pad, Christmas ATC's from a swap, 6 sheets white 12x12 cardstock, 2 atg tapes, 4 rolls of different size score tape, christmas ribbon, rub on's , images, lace, flower beads, chipboard banner (title) , 4 mini white flowers, 8 hand dyed "red" mini flowers.

Remember I told you how I just randomly clicked a video and follow it all, well the youtubers name is My Sisters Scrapper and you can find video 1 of 5 right here .

Let me get on to my mini as there is alot of photo's to enjoy.

Recollections paper I used.

Sorry if I just over loaded you with photo's. I told ya there was ALOT. That is pretty much my 6x6 christmas mini. How do you like it? Would you buy something like this? Would you want to receive this in a swap? Let me know.

Diagonal Double Pocket Card

Hello, I will make this short and sweet. I am in another swap for a Diagonal Double Pocket Card. This looked very hard but it was sooo simple.

I read this tut and watched this one. I used a single sided paper as I cant find any of my double sided. I think it worked well though. I made 2 tags for it.

Here are the photos:

So what do you think?

Snowman ornament

Christmas is coming and snow is a falling. Who is out there making SNOWMEN/ SNOW-WOMEN? I ain't, we don't get snow in the sunshine state. BOOOOO!!!!! When I was a child I loved the snow and now I miss it so much.

I want to share with you today a snow man ornament from Creative Kuts. It's so adorable and easy to put together. I just used scraps of card stock in white, red, yellow and orange. Ink in red, yellow, orange and silver. Black sharpie for eyes and mouth.

Here he is:

Isn't my snow man ADORABLE? I think so.

Happy Thanksgiving Friend

Good morning and Happy Thanksgiving. I hope your day is full of love, joy and blessings as you celebrate a wonderful day with your family and friends.

I wanted to share with you a card I made for a friend. I used a blue with white polka dots paper for my background. I wrote the sentiment in word and printed it out. The bear and turkey are SVG's from Lisa at Scrapping with Lisa. It is a old file and no longer available.

Let's move on to the card now shall we?

Hope you all have a wonderful day, I am still recuperating from my recent surgery.

Happy Birthday Kiara

Today is my wonderful niece Kiara's birthday. She was born on Thanksgiving the year she came into the world. The years has flown because shes now a TEENAGER.  Yikes. Even though she lives only 10 minutes away her step mom keeps her away from us. Such a sad situation.

Well I am here to share with you a diagonal double pocket card with tags and a "certificate" I made for Kiara.

I followed this tutorial but I didn't pay attention to the way my paper was folded and I cut the wrong side. I still used it but my pockets are going to the left.

Here are my creations:

I truly hope she loves them as I do.

Have a wonderful day.

Happy holidays card,

Good morning America. Coming here before I go to surgery to share a card I made. It was a dryer sheet card. Very simple and easy once you got your focal point picked out. I used a free image I found on the net.

I used this simple tutorial except I didn't use glitter. Wouldn't stick to the sheet or thru it .I added a light green ribbon on the left, using a textured circle to thread the ribbon thru. The circle can be moved from top to bottom and any where in between.

Here is my card.

Hope you liked my simple yet cute card.

Must go get 2 hours of sleep before my surgery.

Have a wonderful day.

Joy Fold Card

Good morning, I wanted to pop in real quick to share with you a new card I tried tonight. It is a joy fold card and is for a facebook swap. I have never made this type before and it was soooo soooo easy. I found this video on Youtube to teach me.

The rules for the swap was Christmas, blue, white and silver. I chose a darker blue for my base. Cut up a 6x6 piece of cloud paper for the "matted" pieces. I found a few digi's on the net and printed them for my focal point. I hand wrote a sentiment on the inside.
