Winter Holiday Blog Hop December 11th



Merry Christmas to you!! I'm glad you have joined us in the Winter Holiday Blog Hop today. If you have come from Alina then you are on the right track. If not then please go back to Denise and start at the beginning. I hope you all enjoy the stops ahead.  
My project is a 4 x 6 scrapbook. This is the perfect size to sit on the coffee table. This is the front of the book. I used chipboard letters for the title. I took two pieces of 12 x 12 cardstock and cut them in 6 x 12 sizes and folded them in half. I used my Cinch to punch holes in them and tied them together with ribbon to make the book. I embellished the pages with matting and ribbons. Its all ready to put photos in. 


This is two of the inside pages.

 Another two pages. I want bore you with all the pages inside.

close up of one page. I used a punch set for the red paper, and embossed the green paper. Then I ran my red ink pad across it to bring out the embossed look better.  I LOVE red and lime green together. I hope you all have a MERRY CHRISTMAS!! 
Now on to your next stop Jessica

Day TWO



Hi ladies, I hope you are ready for day two. I hope you came from  Lisa  , if not please go back to see her fabulous project first. 
My project for day two is an altered Journal that I made. I love having that special notebook to record my year that is passing, so I made this one with Christmas in mind. I love whimsy things and I just feel in love with this SVG file of a cute stocking. I used a regular black and white composition book,scrap paper, Martha Stewart punch, stamped image in silver ink, some rhinestones for some bling and fixed it up for a fun look to write my thoughts in. And everything is fun with some added tulle. 


Your next stop is April

"All I Want for Christmas" Blog Hop Dec. 9-10






Day ONE

Hi ladies, I hope you are ready for some Great hopping today.If you came from Lisa then you are in the right place. 
Well I don't know about you, but I love the Christmas season. The music, lights, and gift giving. Makes me all warm and fuzzy inside. My daughter is a teenager now so the "santa" thing has passed in our household, but  my sister has a 2 1/2 year old, that is beginning to get in that "magic" of Christmas age. This year is going to be so much fun when we get together. I can't wait! 
Well, on to the hop. Our theme was "All I Want For Christmas". I knew exactly what I wanted to do for this hop. I am not a military wife , but at this time of year I so pray for our guys and gals that are overseas. They are away from their family and kids, and I know it is hard for them. So All I want for Christmas  is PEACE on this earth so that everyone can come home and be with their family. 
For my project I made a Christmas ornament for my tree. I used my MTC program and the Curlz font and cut out the word Peace on my cricut expression. I used teal blue glitter inside to give it some sparkle and to go with my color scheme on my tree.
 Where ever you are and however you celebrate, I hope you have a good one.

I had to add some zebra to it!!!
