The holidays have begun!

This week starts Hanukkah and while I don't celebrate it at all, I have many friends and students who are Jewish.  I decided to learn a little more about it this year and made some goodies!

 I was quite pleased with the way this card turned out!  I used some of Salty Ocean distressed inks, CTMH outdoor denim and some random yellow ink.  I then used some recollections glitter tape and some random Michaels card stock and stamped the star with Glacier ink (CTMH). I am really loving the tone on tone colours lately!


I also used my new circuit explore (a late birthday, early christmas gift to myself!) to make this cute banner for the family who I tutor for!
Not crazy about my picture of it hung because my upstairs is quite narrow but you get the drift! ;)

100th post! Yay!

Wow, to think this is already 100 posts! Time flies!

This is a short one.  I made this card for my mom because she won a leadership award at her work and I am proud of her!
I also scrap lifted this from Pinterest (probably in my board "cards I like"). I used close to my heart Congratulations and buttons I had laying around the house along with the ribbon.

I tried other colours but I think I still like the white best!
What do you think?

Wrapping the presents already!

This week has been a whirlwind! My birthday was on Tuesday and it always lands on the worst week in the teaching world... Report cards and parent interviews.  When I say worst, I really mean time consuming because the parents are great! To top it all off, I am taking an AQ course as well so time is what I begged for this week!
Well.. my wish didn't come true.  I am so behind in everything and Volleyball which I am coaching is coming to an end soon but means that I have to put more time in to get the girls ready for Areas.  They are doing spectacularly!

This weekend, I turned my electronics off and just crafted.. Oh I decorated my house too!  Its all ready for the busy season! I finally firmed down when I am going to visit my dad for the holidays so I have to wrap and purchase that stuff asap!

Here is what I came up with today!
Homemade gift wrapping with stamps and kraft paper! The tag is made with the jolly holidays cartridge on the circuit and card stock from Michaels (I heart Michaels!)

I scrap lifted this idea from Catherine Pooler.  She does stamping up and I use Close to my Heart stamps and inks so that is the major difference.  I just love this card!
Here I tried to do a variation but I didn't like it as much.

Classy note cards


So I purchased these metallic embossing powders in September that were green and purple.  I just can't get enough of them! They are the Recollection brand from Michaels if you wanted to know!


I decided to make some note cards which were blank inside to sell in packs of 5-10.  I just love how they turned out!


 My french immersion friends would especially love these ones because we never have lots of French cards out there.  I can't believe I had this stamp set in my stash and I didn't even know it! Not sure where they are from either so sorry everyone!
