tag garland

I have made two of the tags for a mantel garland. And taking a cue from my envelope garland I will proably add cute little stockings and colored flags in the mix. Thanks for the challenge to add in a little homemade to the commercialism of Christmas.

Pocket challenge with a cute garland

I do love pockets made from envelopes. So to jazz up this cream envelope I added a super cute garland. It is made from a rub-on garland (Dear Lizzy), stocking stickers and coordinating larger flags I cut from paper. It will probably hold my family's comments on the Christmas season or their wish lists.

Big Prints cut down to size

I tried the challenge of cutting out a flower or other item from a paper and use it in a design . I created a 4x8 journalling page and a tag that used a large print poinsetta andd a large print holly and berries. Thanks for another great challenge.

Journal Your Christmas Preparation

I went for the 8x8 size as i can add in the 6x6 or a card pocket page cut down or a 5x7 - what ever strikes my fancy at the time. But most imporatntly I have create 4x8 pages for days that are just journalling. I have found when I tried other daily Dcember projects I didn't have enough pictures for some days -hence the focus on journalling this year. I found this "Dear Lizzy" product in the sale bin and scooped it up as it contains my happy colors: aqua, dark green, light green, and raspberry. To find them in a Christmas collection is some Christmas magic.

You + Me = Bliss

This is the "starting point" challenge. This is the starting point...
I love shimelle's sketchs and starting points as I have many similiar things on hand in my stash. The one switch I made was to use the black as a cardstock frame only, and  I added the cream rectangle, Authentique. It has blue smudges in the design.
Here is the completd page:
Thanks, again.
Here is the latest scrapbook sketch  from It's not as heavily embellished as I like, but it does have the cardstock label from one of my son's collector tins.

Cheesy Layout

This layout came together easily for Shimelle's "Start Here" challenge. I love the paper strips on the side anchored by the horizintal panel. Adding embellishments is so easy as well. Even tried the hipstamatic picture in a 4x6 format. Have a cheesy day!

Using the blog for what it was made for..

I created this blog so I would have a place to post my page entries. The weekend was full of great ideas and challenges over at, but I only have created today's challenge, as I had everything handy to create the page. After seeing it a few times, I took the plunge and painted a frame.
Thanks for the great challenge.
