December Card Kit

It's that time again... oh actually I am LATE with this reveal! Sorry girls. It has been hectic with the holidays and being the procrastinator that I tend to be...well... you get it... Anyway.... here is my reveal for the December card kit that was sent to me by Mara. What a cute kit! I think the little keys are my favorite. I'm still thinking of things I could use them for. Thank you Mara!


Check out what these other crafty girls created:

Snowflake Mini Album

Isn't this album cute? I just love this chipboard snowflake album. It's actually the second one I've made in the past couple of years. There are so many ways I can think to decorate it. For this one I used fabric for the covers, papers and embellishments from Pink Paislee's "City Sidewalks" line and of course glitter, stickles and Inka gold metallic rub. I am so lovin that stuff! I created this album for a class I taught at Posh Scraps. It was a great group of girls and a lot of fun!

Make n Takes

These are the cute little gift card holders I created for Posh Scraps Christmas Soiree. Easy peasy and I am so loving the new Inka Metallic Rubs by Viva. Now I want one in every color!

Christmas Past

While searching through my pictures I found a few pages I made last year, It's fun to look back and see how people have changed. Baby girl looks so little in this one! Her hair is sooo long now. Hard to imagine her so little.

This one is from  Christmas 1997! The kids look so young. I can't believe they have kids of their own now. This seems like yesterday.

Christmas Creations

I've been working on creating some things to be displayed as my local scrapbook store. This idea came to me immediately when I saw the plain red IKEA frame. I've been wanting to use my new Santa stamp so I found a cute leather strap with a buckle and an acetate overlay with red numbers (in the clearance section- yay me!) to go with it. A quick coat of white paint, some black ink and there you go. Oh and I do believe in Santa Claus! ;)

I created these two layouts with Melissa Frances papers and die cuts, and buttons from October Afternoon. It seems this year the Christmas color palette is very compatable between companies.

For this little tree I found a half roll of ribbon cording at the thrift store for 50 cents! Great deal seeing I used 5 yds to wrap the styrofoam cone. I strung some more of the buttons from October Afternoon on a piece of twine to create a garland. I simply love the unconventional colors for this little tree. So fun!

It's reveal time! This month I hosted. The card kit I sent consisted of Bo Bunny's "Little Miss" collection of 6x6 patterned papers, burlap, ribbon, twine and assorted buttons and flowers. Here is the kit:

I can't believe how much I got out of this kit. I used almost every last little scrap! I made a total of 1 Layout, 5 cards and a tag. Here they are:

 I am really enjoying these card kits! I can't wait to see what everyone else has created!

I can't believe Thanksgiving is less than two weeks away! I'm hoping we will continue with some cooler weather. I think this is the season I miss most of all. We really don't get much of an Autumn here in Florida. Here are a few "Fall" goodies I've been working on.

I made these two cards at a cute little shop I found in Palm Coast FL. What a cute little store! Debbie, the owner was super sweet, as were all the other women in the class. I felt right at home. We experimented with copic markers on acetate, earth elements, flowersoft and superfine glitter. So much fun!

Here are the two latest ATC cards that I made to trade with my wonderful scrappy girlfriends. We get together every month and have so much fun. I think I get more socializing in than creating. Each month we have a different host and a different theme. The themes for these two were "Fall" and "What I'm Thankful For". Of course I am thankful for all of my friends!

I had to scrap these pics of Kayla from our Pumpkin Patch trip. She is just priceless and never ceases to bring a smile to my face. I have more adorable pics so there will be more LO's to follow.

Look at this AMAZING Card Kit I received from Joni this month! I just loved everything about it. Card making is not my forte but with all these goodies I had so much fun and really liked the end results.

Here is the kit:

And here is what I created:
