Christmas Gift Envelopes





What do you get someone who has everything?  Well, gift card/money of course.  But just handing someone money isn't any fun nor is it very creative so I created these cute little envelopes to hold the gift cards/money for the restaurants specified on them, places that they eat often.  Then I tied them with a bow to hold them all together and will give them with a little gift. Hope they like them and enjoy their dates!

Baby It's Cold Outside Layyout



Here's another quick page.  Once again, I'm thankful that my journaling was on the photos as these were taken 3 years ago.  I'm glad I didn't loose that detail since I am so far behind on my scrapbooking.  Before I started to make all my embellishments, I was actually caught up on my scrapbooking.  Then I started to make all my own embellishments because the designers are so good at making cute files.  Unfortunately, it takes so much longer to create everything and I got so far behind.  I love being able to catch up some and spend more time on some pages and less on others.  I also like getting some of these "odd ball or left over" pictures done and in books.  Better in the album, than in my to do pile!  Love this little snowman.  He's one of the Little Scraps of Heaven files and the title was a freebie from Miss Kate's Cuttables again.  Have I mentioned I love free files?  The designers are always so generous!  Thank you so much!!!!

Snowman Gift Card

 I needed some gift card holders for Christmas so I found this fun little envelope holder and got to work on making some.  This one I used the little snowman from Little Scraps of Heaven Designs.  I  think he turned out cute!  Love that little hat too!

http://www.hidinginmycraftroom.com/2015/12/himcr-229-super-scraps-saturday.html I used my green and white paper scraps to  make this.  :-)

Parrot Christmas Gift Card Holder

Here's a little gift card holder that I made using the parrot from Little Scraps of Heaven Designs.  I think he's so cute!  Even a cute little parrot wants to go on a sleigh ride in the snow!  Can you tell it's been snowing here?  LOL.  For the Clear it Out Challenge, the paper is probably at least 6 years old....that counts right?  Hoarder comes to mind.........

Mouse and Candy Cane Card


Isn't this a fun little Christmas card.  I love this little mouse.  This is one of my first attempts at print and cut.  I can tell that if I'm going to do a lot of this, I need to get a better printer.  But, overall I think he's really cute.  The files are from Little Scraps of Heaven Designs.

Fair Time Paper Piecings

 This year we went to the fair.  I have the pictures developed and had a few minutes so I made these cute little files to go with those pictures.  Aren't they fun.  The titles I just made, the turtle is from Little Scraps of Heaven Designs, the bears are from Cuddly Cute Designs, the popcorn and cotton candy and are from Miss Kate's Cuttables, and I don't know who shared the cute little carmel apple.  (If it's yours, please let me know so I can give you credit!)  Anyway, it was fun to play with a few files today.  Love how they turned out!  Can't wait to put them on a page soon!

Back to School Paper Piecings


Spent the day making these cute little back to school piecings.  I love them!  Sometimes I don't feel like scrapbooking, sometimes, I just want to put together cute little files.  Aren't these adorable.  They came from Little Scraps of Heaven Designs.  One of these days when I feel like scrapbooking, I will put them on pages.  Until then, they are ready to go when I get in that mood.  LOL.
