Christmas, Christmas Time is (Almost) Here

Who else is super excited that it is the Christmas season? I just love all the Christmas decorations, lights, projects, pictures, movies. I love it all! I wish it would last for more than a month.

Anyways, here are some "cards" I made for coworkers and friends. I decided to make them tags with little pictures, buttons, and twine. I do have to say I love the way they turned out!

Christmas Cards

The best part of making family Christmas cards is the mess I get to clean up after they are all said and done.

Long Overdue Layouts

Scrapbooking layouts, what are those? I haven't made a scrapbook page in about 3 months. I have been super busy making family Christmas cards and lots of birthday cards so I haven't really had any time to do a layout. I kinda miss it.

I thought it was about time to take a picture of the layouts I did 3 months ago. I know, how horrible is that that it took me that long to take pictures of them as well?

BIG RED TRACTOR... Here is my niece "driving" her papa's tractor. She loves to sit up here and pretend to drive. This is based off of an Inspired Blueprints sketch.
Products Used:
Cosmo Cricket (brown background)
My Mind's Eye (dotted and teal pp)
Doodlebug Design (title stickers, sun, tractor, hay bales, mouse, journaling spot)

24 THINGS, FAVORITES, WISHES... This is a layout for my book of me album. The journaling is just what the title is... 24 things about me, my favorite things, and wishes. This is based off of a Pagemaps sketch.
Products Used:
Bazzill Basics (kraft cardstock)
October Afternoon (patterned paper, journaling strips)
American Crafts [thickers] (title)
Cosmo Cricket (letter stickers)

SWINGING... This picture is horrible I know. My niece loves, loves, loves to swing. Every time she is at my house, she has to go on the swing set. I am happy now that she is at the age where she can pump herself! :) I stitched the pink border by hand. It took me some time, but it sure did come out nice. This is based off of an Inspired Blueprints sketch.
Products Used:

Core-dinations (pink and yellow cardstock)
American Crafts [thickers] (title)
