Well unfortunately I don't have anything new to show you. I am actually going out of town to my parents until next Friday or Saturday. I just wanted to wish everybody a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. When I get back I might have some yummy blog candy in line for you all. Hope everybody has a safe holiday and happy stamping!

I have been really busy making my Christmas cards, and I finally finished this afternoon. Here is the mass of cards that I made and it has taken me quite a while to make all of them. It took even longer because I got food poisoning. This is what my sofa looked like after I got done stuffing half of the envelopes that I had to send out. I'm sure the lady at the post office is going to hate me or think I'm crazy. I made two different cards because I didn't have enough artichoke paper and I didn't think I would have enough ribbon to make 60 cards. Yes, you heard right, 60 cards. I know some of you have made upwards of 100, 60 for me, is a lot of cards. Especially since I have an 18 month old running around destroying things while I scramble to make the cards.I only changed the color of the card stock and ribbon and I used my piercing tool to make up for the empty space. I'm not going to list ingredients this time because I am just exhausted and need a rest. I got some new stamps, quite a few new ones actually. But for now I'm going to get some rest and will get stamping as soon as possible! Hope you all have a great week and happy stamping!

I had gotten the Creative License Simply Scrappin' Kit a while back and haven't really had any time to use any of it. My DH's step mom's, daughter had a baby at the beginning of November and I decided to make her a few things. Well I actually bought her some stuff for her baby and made her a couple of things too.Sorry for the pixels, but I packaged everything and didn't really take a look at the quality of the picture. So I used Adobe to touch it up. The only way I could get rid of the blur was to "sharpen" it. You can't tell, but I used textured Blue Bayou card stock. I water colored the giraffe and used my paper piercing tool.I also made her a name frame with her baby's first and middle name. I used the adhesive die cuts that came along with the kit. I didn't want it to be too girly so I frayed the ends of the ribbon.I made one of those really cute "goodie" boxes that everybody else was making. You can find the instructions to make one here. It was a really easy to make, so if you need a quick gift box idea, this one is super easy and the instructions are really good.This is the top view of my treat box. The only thing that I didn't do the same as the instructions was, I didn't put the eyelets where my ribbon went. I didn't because my ribbon was a bit bigger then my eyelets. Well I'm not going to go into the ingredients on this project because it is only the Simply Scrappin' Kit materials and ribbon. Hope you all have a really great week and happy stamping!
