Sugar cookies

Well I finally got my girls together at one time in the same room and we baked sugar cookies and had a great time with it to they were a real big hit at our family gift exchange party and some of them were really cute to

they really put a lot into those cookies (in between texts and phone calls lol)

they reallly used their imagenation but after a while I think they hit a brick wall and the cookies were looking wellllll kind of slack

so after a while we just put sugar on them, they were made from scratch and they taste really good to I wonder if we should make this a tradition.

Noodles and Ashley's day

Today is the day Ashley and Noodles open their gifts and I was so exciated this is the first time I made anything for Noodles but I knew she was gonna like it

Loveing the transformers (like I do) I decided to make her a blanket, I started to make a pillow but I just couldnt get all the pictures in like I wanted so I made the blanket,

I tied all the ends together with the back side which is a light blue to match the front it was so much fun I hope she gets many years of warmth from it.

Altered book day

Today is Altered book day, Pam talked about it a said it was OK to alter any book instead of the large composition book like we did last year
and here it is and it turned out lovely if I must say so myself
this book is a good size I just covered with paper and let the creativity flow, and flow it did as you can see I love flowers I would put them on anything if I could, lol

the flowers really make the book the I was talking to Pam while I was working on the book and asked her for her name initials the PAT you see in the frame is just Pam's initials OK until our next gift opening signing off.

Today is to from tags

Back again, and now I will show my to from tags I made for Pam
The Santa tag I got from a book it was a card that I thought would look good in tag form, the tree was cut with my silhouette and decorated with stickles

this is my fav I love it, I saw this door in my silhouette library and wanted to cut it out to see how it look and when I placed it on a tag it looked great I just went from there

this one was a tag in a book some of the things were changed I think the thing that really caught my eye was the ribbon

here is a joy card I wanted to use some of my Tim Holtz stickers so I pulled off a few of them and just went where the tag took me, the orniment is a stamp and I took my Martha Stewart fern punch and punched a lot of different color green fern and placed them down on a branch I cut from a quickutz die and it turned out great. well thats my tags see you all next time.

Wild card day

Sorry about the late post but it was my birthday and all so this post is kinda late, wild card day is when ever its one of our birthday the other gets to make or buy whatever they want for the others birthday, and on my birthday I made pam a box, but not just any box, it started out like this,

just a regular old box I got from Michaels, it had a shinny finish so I had to strip the box completly down to get all that shinny paper off then I added a layer of gesso and a couple layers of paint

didnt like the way the paint looked so out came the paper and I started covering everything and i loved it once it was covered out came the bling and the flowers and everything just fell into place. (dont you just love it)

Now I just could'nt send Pam just a empty box I had to put something in it so I made her a few little note books to stick in her pocket book so when she needs to jot something down she can have it on hand and I love the idea because it used up a lot of scraps I had laying around, (you know I might make a few more for christmas gifts for the family)

the inside of some is like a junk journal just bits and pieces of patterned paper some stamps, rub-ons and other things I had laying around, some of the other books have just some large index cards cut in half and bound with my chinch (gotta love that chinch) ok thats it for this post next we open to from tags so I'll be right back.

Day 5 of the 12 days of Christmas with Pam

Today is day 5 and I know I know I'm late with my post but I was in a couponing class and I learned a thing or two today (but thats another post) ok here we go most of my cards was inspired from a few magazines one is  Paper crafts Nov/Dec 2011 and the other is Paper Crafts Holiday Cards Issue vol 6 I just changed a thing or two to suit my needs

this one is on page 17 at the top, I just changed the house and the saying in the card to a poinsetta to suit the holiday I used my handy dandy sillhouette to cut the poinsetta and some stickles for the center.

This one is on page 22 of the same mag I just took the Sketch thay have there and went from there I love this one

Now this one is all Silhouette I cut out santa  and the fireplace to go on a tag, and found out after it was cut that my measurements were way off but it fit on a card so thats what I did and added the nut crackers on each side

This one Pam said is her fav this one came from the Holiday Cards issue it's on page 13 and I made it the same way its in the magazine the only thing I changed is the saying their card says Merry Christmas while mine says Happy Holidays this was fun it turned out just like the one in the mag

this one is the same book on page 12 I changed a few things like the picture and the ribbon and the paper I like the way it turned out

and last but not least is this one its on page 28 of the same mag the paper is Websters pages the only thing is they had a 12 x12 piece of paper cut to fit the card, the only thing I had was a 6x6 piece cut to fit the card and they used one flower I thought it looked better with two and my saying is changed I left out a few things to. well thats Pams 5 cards, the next time we open gifts it will be my birthday, ( cant wait) that means the I had a free card and got to make Pam anything that I wanted and I cant wait for her to see her gift. so until Dec 7 take care.

Day one of the 12 days of christmas with Pam

Ok its here the day that you all have been waiting for, its the 12 (cut down from 25) days of Christmas with my friend Pam, so on day one if you read the post down below is going to be a smash book and I cant wait for her to get her box and open it, so since today is the first I will post a picture of the book I made her

AND HERE IT IS (TA DAAAA) I just love it that little teddy bear just stole my heart I tryed to take make the picture look really Christmassey (what do you think) the paper I used was various papers from various Christmas lines

I added envies large and small some I even made myself, I tryed not to add to many embellies so she could embellish the rest herself, I added some tabs so she could find the writting paper quickly when she wants to journal.

and you know me I had to add some bling here and there, I really hopes she likes it (I know I do) it was really fun and different to make here is a link to Pam's   place gone on over and check out her first day of the 12 days of Christmas (cut down from 25 lol)
