I have always enjoyed the Christmas holiday because it gave me another outlet for my creative abilities. This year I am somewhat of a scrooge but I have also made a few things that I have had a lot of fun making.
Heather and I made swaps back in October to swap with the Ink Demos that we meet with every month. I had purchased some treat tubes with lids from Late Night Stampers Bulk Buy Group and thought up a box to hold them. The holly box in the middle is the first one that I made and is my working template. The Santa box was the treat box I swapped with the girls in Ink Demos was made with the cherry cobbler and very vanilla card stock. The designer paper Deck the Halls. Stamps used were a Jolly St. Nick and the Just Believe sentiment. Black ink. Heather also made a treat box to swap and used whisper white, not quite navy, and real red card stock. Designer paper Candy Cane lane, the Snow flake punch, circle punch, and the A Cute Christmas and snow flake stamps. The images were stamped in Not quite navy and black ink. Heather CASE'ed (create and share everything) her snow man poop sentiment on line.
The second thing I want to share is an advent calendar that I made in stamp club from a Christmas Cheer Simply Scrappin' Stampin Up! kit. I made the advent calendar a box to hold 14 4x6" cards and 8 3x3" cards. I still had 2 pieces of paper left over when I was finished. Not bad for a $19.95 packet of paper and stickers huh! I sent the calendar to my granddaughter Teresa so she could count down till Santa came!
I couldn't let it slide without putting a picture of the baby girl in here!
Chuck went to Germany last month for a meeting and had the opportunity to visit with Chad, Candice and Teresa. Here is a picture of him 'playing' with her. I am so
The last thing I want to share was a second advent calendar that I created to use for a class at WLS.
Okay that is it for today. I hope you enjoyed the pictures. I had fun making the Christmas crafts and enjoy looking at the pics of the grandbaby. Teresa is such a blessing.
