Here is day 11's gift. This has some really cool pages and vintage look. 
And today on day 12 Christmas Day, my SS elf got me the Trim the Tree cartridge. I will definatly being checking this out. Thank you SS elf!


Mother scrapbook pages

I made these pages for my mother for christmas. The words MOTHER are from the Cricut cartridge Mother's Day cut at 3 inches.

The doily2 is cut at 5 inches with a translucent vellum behind it with a couple of pearl brads and Ranger stickles-diamond and  waterfall used. The glitter lace paisley is We R memory keepers and is self adhesive. The rosette I made myself and added a button from A Rhonna Christmas collection and Pink Bazzill cardstock. Mother paper is from Karen Foster. Thanks for looking~

Christmas card holder

I deceided to make a Christmas card holder and this is what I came up with. I have also entered this in My Sheri CRAFTS challenge #36 Christmas.



Recipe for Christmas card holder:
Chipboard 4x16 or any size you want
K&Company Gold glittered Twinkle type letters and flourish
red and green ribbon
BIA and 1/2 inch o wires
Crop a dile and eyelets 3/16
Cricut cartridge Christmas cards at 3 inch
Folk art paint-metallic Christmas green, metallic silver sterling and metallic bright red
badge clips 10-20
Tim Holtz Distress ink Vintage photo
Embellishemts of your choice
I painted each one in the three colors. Then I swiped the distressing ink along the edges.  I then took my BIA and punched holes to hold the owires.On one board I put Merry then on another the flourish in the middle then Christmas on the last. I chose three cards off of the christmas card cart to add to them along with some other embellishments. I then punched holes with the crop a dile and added the eyelets and then srtung it up. The badge holders can be moved anywhere on the wires to hold the cards of any size and shape. Thanks for looking~

12 Day Christmas Elf swap on Cricut MB

I am in a swap where we exchanged gifts for Christmas. Luvskrapin hosted this and she partned each person with someone but you were not to tell who you got. It was to be a surprise:)
 You sent 12 items and marked one gift for Christmas day to be opened. The other 11 are opened one per day up to Christmas. This was a fun swap. Here is my gifts from my Elf. Sorry I did not think to take a pic of the gifts I sent to my SS. I hope she likes everything I sent to her:)
So far so good I have kept the temptation back, but it is now going to be hard since soon I will be able to open one. Not sure which, I may have my husband pick for me. I will post each day what I got as I open each one. Hope you will join me~
