*Giveaway*, Christmas ornaments and More

Reminder- Don't forget to get your name in for the giveaway of this MY BOOK planner!  Winner drawn  on Wed.  Just leave a comment HERE in yesterdays post to be entered.


The framed fonts are self adhesive... ahhh.. love that.   The Creative Scrap Images are double sided so .. you see an image on both sides!

I can never resist adding "Stickles" when there is snow on the image. lol  Some of these I even added some to the Chipboard frames.

Most of the frames are just sprayed with different colors of Glimmer Mist. Super easy.. and dries really quick.. so didn't take me much time at all to put these together. 

I just embellished them with little bits of things from my Christmas craft supply box.  I love looking for these little embellishments in the Christmas isle at Hobby Lobby.  Lots of times 40-50% off.

Even the little shaped crystals I used on some of these I just found in the inexpensive Christmas ornaments isle there.  I get the ones with a number of them hanging together, and take them apart.  I punch I hole in the bottom of the chipboard with my crop-o-dile and add them (using the jump ring they were held together with

 On some of these they are the fronts and others the backs.

Another little hint. If you buy ribbon at Hobby Stores.. from time to time, be sure to check the Christmas isle and the wedding ribbon isle.. because they have great ribbons there ..usually always on sale.. and there are lots of different colors .. not just Christmas colors or just for weddings.


Yesterday I went with Kate out to the lake where her brothers family lives. What a gorgeous day it was for Nov! Wow!   Anyway.. I snapped a few photos of  L and K... aren't they Adorable!!

( and they told me .. L doesn't like to have his picture taken) lol  What??? lol


Need to think about finishing up some things and packing...but need to head out to  get my hair trimmed first.
I'll be heading out for CKC Seattle on Thursday with Crafty Secrets.  Then from there to British Columbia.
