It's December Daily Time!

Thought I'd share my thinking process with you on what I'm using to create my December Daily this year. I didn't get a chance to make one last year, so I'm looking forward to creating one this year. I plan on keeping things simple as December is hectic enough! LOL

Altered Gift Card Holder

Hello there Crafty friends!

Today I thought I'd share a fun altered glassine, chipboard gift card holder I created for Sweenothingsstampco.

I created this altered gift card holder using a chipboard purse as the base of my gift card holder. I used the paper collection Moments from My Minds Eye along with flowers from iamroses and recollections. The adorable sweetnothingstampco image I used is Uptown Sophie! I printed Uptown Sophie on a piece of dictionary paper and colored her using my Spectrum Noir markers. Behind Uptown Sophie I have a hidden glassine pocket made from a glassine bag were a gift card can be placed. I love how fun and simple this gift card holder turned out!

Don't forget to check out Sweetnothingsstampco were you can find Uptown Sophie along with many other cute digi images.

Enjoy the video and thanks for stopping by!
Happy Scrapping!

Altered Christmas Ornament

Wow! I can't believe Thanksgiving has come and gone already! This year has been flying by so quickly.  Now that the turkey has been eaten and the pumpkin pie is all gone :( I'm ready to get out our Christmas decorations and Christmasfy my house! I LoVe decorating really for all the holidays we celebrate, but decorating for Christmas is my FaVoRiTe!!! I wanted to create a "new" decor piece for our home this year, and when I found a beautiful paper mache ornament, I knew right away I had to alter it for my dt project for I Am Roses this month.

I love how beautiful the I Am Roses look on top of my altered ornament and how sparkly they shine in the light!

The iamroses flowers I used are:

I've Been Scrapping!

Hello there crafters!

This post comes with a warning! LOL!


Back in October my scrappy friend Jen and I went to the Scrapbook Expo here in Denver.  I was really excited to see "Kiwi Lane Designs" on the list of vendors coming to the expo. Being a youtuber I happen to come across their YT Channel awhile ago and have been following them ever since.

 It's was such a pleasure to meet the "Kiwi" girls at the expo and they made me feel so welcome!
If you ever get a chance to go to a Scrapbook Expo and they are there, make sure to stop by their booth and check them out.

I left the expo with a few of their designer templates in hand and after playing with them jumped online and ordered more!

I've been busy scrapbooking during my free time and have been playing with my Kiwi Lane Designer Templates and I'm in love with them. The designer templates remind me of how simple scrapbooking use to be, and that's what I love about their product.  I love that it doesn't matter if you have been scrapbooking as long as I have or if you are new to scrapbooking. I love that you can create with the designer templates in away that suits your scrapbooking style!

Okay are ready to see what I've been creating?

Here are some of the scrapbook layouts I've made using my Kiwi Lane Designer Templates.

Thanks for stopping by and happy scrapping!
