Name Tags/Table Settings

Every year for Christmas we like to make different Name Tags/Table Settings for our family Christmas dinner. I thought I would share what we created for this year. When my daughter and I went to Scrapfest in Oshawa in the fall, we picked up a die to use in the Cuddlebug. The die is called YNS Lollipop Cover by Your Next Step. Here is what we created!

My Mom had painted the little stain glass ornaments a few years ago and wanted to use them on something. They were a nice festive touch to the Lollipop covers and it was a great way to use up some Christmas paper scraps. I can't wait to create some for other occasions....birthdays, Easter, Hallowe'en etc....

Have a safe New Years Eve!

Nice List

I have another Christmas layout to share with you today. I created this layout from a sketch over at Scrapmuch? Sketch-y Friday  Week 3.

For my layout I used the Scrapmuch? December Kit Club papers - Carta Bella - So this is Christmas. The colours of these papers are perfect!

We were finally able to get a "Mall Santa" photo taken....and it is adorable!

Here are some closeups.....

The little gems in the kit where perfect to accent the tree on the paper.

One of my new favourite ribbons is this lovely organza!!! I used it on a lot of my Christmas projects this year!

I received the little wooden tree in a surprise Christmas gift in the mail from a close friend. I added some ZAZZ! to add some sparkle.....thanks C!

And here is the Scrapmuch? Sketch-y Friday Week 3 sketch.....

As you can see I changed things up quite a bit to suit my papers and photo! Have a great day!

Merry Christmas Everyone!!!

Good Morning on a beautiful Christmas Eve Day.....today I would like to share a layout that I created from a kit that I won at the Scrapmuch? Scrapink Fundraiser Crop back in September. The kit is from Basic Grey and is a Summer 2013 Retailer Kit Designed by: Kelly Goree. There are supplies and instructions in the kit to make 6 layouts. Here is the first one that I have created, called Santa Claus.

This picture was taken a couple of years ago when the boys got to meet Santa at the Scotland Optimist Horse drawn sleigh rides. It was a very cold night, but we all enjoyed the festivities.
Here are some closeups.......

Sorry for the shadows....the sun was shining brightly into my kitchen this morning.....and I am not complaining....we haven't seen the sun shine much lately in Southern Ontario!!!!

I am entering this layout in the Scrapmuch?  December Colour Challenge. Here are the colours for that challenge.....

I would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a Very Merry Christmas....may we all feel the excitement of sharing time with family and friends during this blessed season! Happy Holidays!

Stuck?! December 1 Sketch Reveal

Happy December....It most certainly is my most favourite time of the year!

Today I am sharing my December 1, DT Layout for the Stuck?! Design team. Laura provided us with another fabulous sketch. I choose to create my layout with a photo of my three wonderful children. I snapped a rare photo of the three of them together this past July at my Mom's 85th Birthday party. We gathered at my sister's place which provided a beautiful backdrop for the photo. Her gardens are fantastic!

Here is the sketch.....

And here is my layout using papers and embellies from Simple Stories; and Basic Grey -Hipsters - Wood Die Cut.
