Some christmas projects

I was recently in a secret santa swap and I thought I would share the ornament & container I made for my secret santa. Unfortunately the ornament did not make it to her in one piece :( I used some Stampin Up rub ons on a clear ornament, added some jewels to the little snowflakes, put some buttons inside & added some ribbon to the top. It turned out pretty cute.

And this is the container that the ornament went in. It was a hot cocoa container that I had & altered. I used K&Co. paper along with some cardstock, glitter, velvet ribbon snowflake diecuts and punches & buttons.

I entered a couple secret cupid swaps too & can't wait to start on some cute valentine stuff to give to my secret cupid.

New Look

So I found this site that has some free blog backgrounds that are super easy to apply so I thought I'd give my blog a new look! If you see changes happening on my blog, Im probably just playing around :) But I do like this one. You can check out the backgrounds at HERE

I haven't been creating much lately and now I've got the itch to do some reorganizing in my scraproom especially after my hubby put up some shelving for me. I have a few pics of things I created this month and maybe I'll get those up.

Recipe Challenge

It's Tuesday which means it's time for a recipe challenge! This week I made a card that has a bit of a different fold to it which was simple and fun. The challenge for this week was to create a card using chipboard, paint & circles. I made a chipboard snowflake with my cuttlebug snowflake die, painted it pink and added some "flakes" to it. The circles I punched out with my circle punches. I also brushed a bit of pink paint onto my red cardstock. The "Peace" is a die from SU and my patterned papers are K & Co.

Recipe Card

Yes, I know I'm still a slacker lol, at least I have a recipe card to share with you all today :) This week's recipe was to use eyelets, rubons & ribbon so I made a card to add to my Christmas card stash (something I need to think about getting out soon). The snowflakes are rubons ad I punched out the snowflakes that are on top of those.
So, here's my card & maybe, just maybe I'll post more this week lol.
