Our Family Christmas Card 2012

Each year I like to make our family Christmas card.  I knew I wanted to do a snowman this year because I had recently purchased some Peachy Keen snowman face stamps and I had found this cute paper pack at Michaels :)  I also wanted to do an unique fold.

Here is what I came up with.

I used my Cricut Doodlecharms cartridge for the snowman and my computer for the inside sentiment.  I also wrote a note to each person on the inside just to make it a little more personalized.  I added some pics, a twine scarf and I was done!  I had these made back in November but needed to add the pictures so I did not get them out until mid December (I am going to start in October next year :)).

PreSchool Teacher Gifts and Class Treats 2012

So like usual I waiting until the last minute for school treats for the kids...needless to say I have been busy but still should have planned ahead more!

My youngest only has 6 kids in her class (thank goodness) so I had to hurry to get them done the last day of class before break which was very early for her school for some reason.  I used a digital print from Paper Crafting World for the cute girl elf.  I wish I had time to individually cut them out but did not, I also wish I had a machine that cut SVG's but I don't :(  So this was the best I could do in a hurry.  The Elf Girl is so cute and reminds of my Mady Moo which is why I used her :)

I also needed something quick for the teachers.  I had some Christmas themed magnetic notepads from last year and I had picked up some GIANT pens from the dollar store so I knew those would work.  I just love how easy these were and how cute they turned out.  I used the directions for the paper pad "cover" from here.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope everyone has a craft day!

Altered CD Case

Hello!  My girlfriend Stephannie made me the cutest altered CD case with a Starbucks gift card in it (you can see it here) and she also gave me some empty CD cases to use myself so when I need a gift card holder for my son's good friends birthday I new I wanted to use one!  I used Stephannie's as inspiration.

I hand cut the paper just using the case for measurement for the front and back covers (put inside the CD case), I used some sports themed paper I bought years ago from AC Moore for the football patterned paper, then I cut the football for the outside from Sports Mania Cricut Cartridge and I embossed it used my Cuttlebug.  I used My Creative Time's All Around Birthday for the Happy Birthday circle stamp and then I used the football from My Creative Time's Touchdown stamp set for the center.   I used the My Creative Time's gift card die to cut my giftcard holder for the inside and stamped it with the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Gift Card Sentiment stamp set.  I added some faux stitching with my white gelly roll pen and some more of the football themed paper.   I used a few glue dots to stick the gift card holder on and filled it with a Sports Authority gift card (it is getting hard and harder to buy for my 11 year olds friends but they all love sports!).  I hope he liked it!
