Embellished Journal

This is an ordinary notebook that has been
covered in card stock and
I think it makes an inexpensive and
one-of-a kind gift.

Happy Winter Sampler

I completely stole this sampler idea from my sister,
Penny Thomas.
The stamp set used has retired and
 is one of my all-time favorites. 
I think it might have been one of the very
first sets I bought. 
Love that little snowman working so hard to stay warm.
Beautiful concept, Penny!

Snow in a Jar!

I'm pretty sure I've mentioned how much I
LOVE Pinterest. 
I steal ideas from it daily.
Winter scenes inside jars are so popular these day.
I have these two sitting on my kitchen window.
It's the only kind of snow I enjoy!
Not a fan of the cold weather,
but these guys cheer me up on cold dreary days.

Ho Ho Ho!

This little banner hangs on the back of my front door.
All the squares are adhered to the pretty striped ribbon.
The letters were cut using the
Big Shot Die Machine.
Santa and Rudolph were made with punches.
I love walking by the door and seeing them there.

Family Christmas Invitation

Steve and I are hosting the family Christmas party
this year.  I have to admit, I am a bit stressed already!
I saw this sweet snowman on Pinterest recently
and couldn't wait
to make him part of our celebration. 
He'll be on the front of the invitations I am sending.
Who could resist that face?

"And the stockings were hung..."

This little cutie is just big enough
for a chocolate nugget
Love the tiny clothespins.

Golden Tag/Card

Is it a tag?
Or is it a card?
I saw a version of this card on Pinterest,
and decided to add my little flair to it.
The tag is heat-embossed with gold embossing powder.
The butterflies are punched from gold
Glimmer Paper.

I Punched Santa!

If I could figure out how to turn this around,
you could see how stinkin' cute this little
Santa tag it. 
All done with punches.

Pumpkin Sampler

I love samplers.
It's such a pretty way to decorate for a holiday or season.
This one is just pumpkins.
Using the
Large Oval Punch
and the
Sweater Weather Designer Paper,
I placed them in an 8" x 8" frame.
Just needs whip cream!

Wedding Card Envelope

When giving a gift,
I think the unexpected is fun.
With this wedding card,
I wanted the envelope to be just as special.
Vellum Card Stock,
I punched several pieces from the
Blossom Punch.
I cut some of the petals away
and started to form a 3-D flower.
Inside is a Pearl and Rhinestones
on the tag.
Now THAT envelope is going to be noticed!

Tiffany Box

This little box was made using the
Simply Scored
scoring tool.
The theme for the wedding shower,
(yes, another one!),
was Breakfast at Tiffany's.
So, I thought the famous
Tiffany box as appropriate for the
gift card I enclosed inside.
It was decked out in bling using
Silver Glimmer Paper.
(I couldn't figure out how to turn the picture
of the gift card around.  Still learning Windows 8.)
Love that bow. 
I think Holly Golightly would too.
