I worked on my Christmas cards for 3 days and finally done with them. This is the first year that I got them done well in advance. I hate rushing more than anything.
Recollection ready made cards for the base.
Recollection Christmas stamp set.
Watercolor pencils (cant remember which brand)
Snowflake Cuttlebug embossing folder
First start by cutting mats to fit card base. Embossed mat with Cuttlebug Snowflake folder. Stamp Santa Clause onto watercolor paper. Color with watercolor pencils. I used Diamond Stickles on all white areas to give them substance. They looked awesome. The pictures really dont do them justice. They may have taken 3 days but are well worth it. Thanks for looking :-)

This weekend my Mom & Dad came in for a visit. I dont get to see them as much any more because they moved 8 hours away from me. I am not liking that !! Anyway when my mother & I get together we have to make at least one full day of crafting. We spent Monday making an Explosion Box, Earring holder, and Frame. We also had planned to start on our Christmas cards but didn't make it that far. LOL Anyway here is the Explosion Box I made....
For the lid cut an 8x8 piece of paper and score at 2". I think next time I may score at 1 1/2" as the lid fit very tightly and hard to get on. Decorate the outside. Adhere 12 photos to the layers. Fold all layers up to form the sides of the box and place lid on.
There you are. All finished. I loved this project. It was very easy and fun to make and will make a wonderful gift. My grandmother is always wanting pictures so I developed 13 pics to add. I thought this would make a great gift for her. Thanks for checking it out. :-)

Here is a Birthday card I made my dad. They are coming in this weekend. I am so excited! His birthday is the first week of November but I never get to spend it with him. They usually come up in September or October. We usually go down for a visit either at Thanksgiving or Christmas. So I decided I was going to have him a surprise birthday party. He is a cowboy at heart so I thought he would love this stamp set. It is from Stampin' Up.

Here is a Tri-Shutter album I made for a friend that had her baby boy over the weekend. I had so much fun making it. I had been intimidated by these albums thinking I was not capable of making one. I seen a tutorial online and let me tell you....it was very simple!! It holds 3 4x6 photos and can be displayed on a shelf or dresser. I hope she enjoys it as much as I did making it. :-)
