What a beautiful day! Even if the sun wasn't out I'd be happy - cuz it's not snowing! (What a change from Sunday, I was loving the snow Sunday, now I've had enough!) So Tuesday the girls and I made little gifts for all the kids in Hannah's class, it's just a very simple and inexpensive - they're pencils with little Christmas toppers! We used the Merry Crittermas set (wish I would've bought this set sooner! You can order it up to January 3rd http://www.stampaholicsteph.stampinup.net/ to order online! The other one uses a retired set I picked up last month at a show in St.Thomas, it's called Moose You - it's quite cute, and although I try not to buy retired items, this one was too cute to pass up! I used the 1 3/8" cirlce punch, layered on the scallop circle punch and then layered again on the 1 3/4" circle punch. I then used glue dots to adhere them to the pencils, and voila! On the back it says Merry Christmas and some of them Hannah printed on, but alot of them mommy did! Hope you like and thanks for stopping by! Steph

Happy Monday everyone! So I had a little time to play last night, I would've been finishing off wedding albums but hubby had some last minute fixes to do...so I decided to scrap book our fun in the snow we had on Sunday! I was tempted to upload the Merry Christmas kit, but I decided to use what I already had instead...so the pages you see are done with everything that comes with the MDS disk. Awesome eh? I used Night of Navy Small polka dot paper, Snow flake punch, Snow burst stamp set, Curly label punch and embellished with Always Artichoke Ribbon and Baja Breeze and Whisper White brads...have I mentioned lately that I love MDS?? Enjoy the snow! We did :)

So I must send another big THANK YOU to my mom, we went to a super awesome sale yesterday in Chatham where a fellow demo was selling off all her Stampin'Up items...yes it was better than Christmas (well almost!) So needless to say I spent the night organizing all my good deals and early Christmas presents (I know, I'm very spoiled!) So today I thought I would share one of the pages of the album I have finished. The picture is courtesy of hubby (you can visit his site http://www.digitalfootprints.webs.com/) . I really love My Digital Studio for Aaron's albums, it's a such a nice keepsake for the Bride and Groom. This layout is really simple, the background is Basic Black, insert the photo at the size you want, matt with White and then Drop Shadow. I added stamps from the Always Elegant set and the Together Forever set, I really love these for wedding albums. Well I hope you are all having a great weekend, thanks for stopping by! Steph

Greeting All! Hope everyone is safe and sound. 3 snow days and still hardly any snow here in Glencoe...but happy to be home! You would think I would have lots of new projects with this bonus time off...well 2 more wedding albums to go, a sick little girl and busy little sister...so not so much creating happening around here :( However, with the weather so crappy for those around us, I wanted to post one of my favourite cards. This is another card I cased from Jackie Topa, she's so very talented...I had a great time re-making it and hope you do too!
Punches used are the Bulb punch, Modern Label, Wide and Small Oval, 1 3/4 circle and 1 3/8" circle punch, and heart to heart punch. For the inside I used my Circle Scissors to cut a 3" hole in the middle. If you would like help or have any questions about making this card send me an e-mail, I'd be happy to help! firstname.lastname@example.org
Have a great night, stay safe, and thanks for stopping by!
