Ive been so busy trying to get things done for Christmas that I haven't had a chance to post any of my new projects Ive completed.
Here's another recipe box that I made for my mom, I didn't get a finished picture of it, but this is a close to finished one.

These are a couple bag toppers I made for hot cocoa.

Holiday Planner

Here's a holiday planner I made this weekend, hopefully it will help me to keep organized with the upcoming holidays. I got this idea from

A close up of the title, I used liquid applique with some embossing powder to snow cap the letters and give them some sparkle.

A close up of the binder clips that I got from Staples on clearance. I added the snowflake rub ons to them, the colors went perfectly with the paper.

And this is a word garland that I made this weekend too, I haven't decided if I want to keep it yet or not.

Virtual Crop

Every month I join in on a virtual crop at This month I got to host the crop! I did some projects (sort of like virtual make and takes) for the gals to do during the crop. Here's some of the little projects we did. This one I saw over at it's an ornament or could be used to tie onto a package or gift bag.

We made these at and I thought I'd share them with the gals at wisconsin scrappers. The pic is my "handsome" nephew, Riley. The paper is Extreme Boy and there is a ribbon on it that says "charmer" These are so easy to make, I could do up dozens of them :)

This one is a little ornament made out of slide mounts, it could also be tied onto a package or gift bag.And this last one is a frappuccino bottle, the gals could alter a bottle or jar for their project. I'll fill it with some flavored hot cocoa as soon as I get to "Back to the Country Store". The coffee mug is a stamp that I cut out then I used liquid applique to make marshmallows, it turned out too cute.

I've Been Busy

I've been getting some projects done, some to sell some as gifts. This first one is another mini coaster album that Im hoping to sell. I used the Extreme Boy Junkitz collection for this one.

This is one of the recipe lunch tins I make, I will also be selling this project. It's not complete yet, I need to add ribbon along the top yet and make the index cards to go inside it. I love this paper and am thinking of making one for myself out of this collection for my kitchen. The collection is French Kitchen by Reminisce.

I joined a "ghost giving goblin" swap, it's like a secret sister. We had to alter a paint can and fill it with goodies and send it to our secret sister for halloween. The one I made is in a previous post, this is the one I got from my secret sister. I love it and there were so many goodies in it.

The back of the can.All the goodies that were in the can.
And these are some frappuccino bottles that I altered to give the kids (Rueben, Malia & Riley) for trick or treating.

Some fun altered things.

Here's a couple things I've done in the past few days. The first one is a 2" binder clip to be used to hold a photo. This was a project during "freakfest" over at this last weekend. I think these are super cute and the gals over at had some pretty cute ones.

This next project is an altered frappuccino bottle. Im hoping to make these for my nieces and nephews for trick or treating. This is the only bottle I have done so far, I have a few more to get made yet.

This last project is something I just finished. I saw this paper at the store and thought it was just the cutest paper. I've had these coasters for awhile and decided to make a mini album. Im thinking about selling this if I ever get my account set up, I may take it to a local store too when I get a chance to talk to the owner. Anyway, it's too cute and I had fun making it.

I actually got some projects done the last two nights. Im teaching a beginning scrapbooking class in November and had to make a two page layout for it. This is what I cam up with with the products I was given.

And I joined a "Gift Giving Goblin" swap where we have to decorate a paint can (or lunch box) and put goodies in it for our secret "goblin". I saw this idea at, I thought it was so cute so I had to make one. I need to do some finishing touches yet and put the scrapbooking goodies in it then it's all set to send. I hope my secret "goblin" likes it.
