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~

Hope Card

Where I work we have a young lady that has cancer and it is aggressive. She has gone through much. I and the woman I work with wanted to do something special for her, so I made the card and she bought a small basket with a yellow rose and some greenry and gave it to her. She is fighting all she can. She said to us " I have cancer but it does not feel like it is there." She is putting up a brave battle, I pray she will win. She comes to work everyday with a positve attitude and a smile on her face.

Even though she is going through this, she does sometimes feel like she is not whole, I thought this quote might help her that even though she is going through a lot she is still beautiful no matter what.
She thanked us, she needed that. She made us cry.

Altered Stampin Up tin

I found a couple of these tins at a yard sale over the summmer.

So I decided to alter it to be used for a Christmas gift. I used GBS for this. It took several tries, but I thought it turned out pretty nice.

Inside of tin.

I used Tim Holtz alcohol inks silver and gold to put on the edge. Sorry pic is not very good. As soon as I can I will have the cut file uploaded to my account on mediafire.

Before Cricut

Yes....Before I found Cricut, I did scrapbooking differently. Here is some pics of some I had done. I used the tearing method, some embellies, 3-D stickers and such. I had even did one after the song, "When you wish upon a star". Thanks for looking~

Scrapbook Jingle song swap on Cricut MB

I recently joined a swap where you choose a fav. Christmas song and design a scrapbook page out of it. You sent in only the recipe items for it. You needed 4 blocks for pics.,1 Jornaling block, 4 die cut images and at least 3 other items to be added, such as brads, ribbon and etc., a title piece on sturdy cardstock.
I chose the song Silver Bells. I printed out the song and put it on cardstock. I then did 4 blocks for pics. I found a pic of Santa and children from a postcard (I think) put it in an editing software, added lines to be used as a jb. With my Cricut, I cut a city scene at 3 inces from PSB. The bells at 3 inch from Wedding cart. Silver Bells from Jasmine and the shodow using DS. The two women shopping I found on the internet. I converted it to an SVG and useing my Cricut and SCAL, I cut them out also at 3 inches. The street light is cut at 3 inches with the lights hidden in DS. I shortened and then used a 1 inch circle punch to punch the red and green for the lights.

My button

I am trying to do a button so people can grab it and put on their site, can not seem to figure out how to click on it and get it to go to my blog. My code must not be right, having some difuculty with it. Still learning how to do everything, adding pages, links and so forth. So please have patience with me. Working full time and trying to fit all I love in each day can be a bit trying. But I love the challenge and any help would be much appreciated.

Twilight Saga Fire and Ice recipe swap

Front of recipe book, book is 8x8.

This page and

this page I designed.

All of these ladies have talent.

Cute with the bones.

Love all the pics they chose.

Lots of bling~

 Unique styles of each mb member.

The idea was to pick a recipe from movie or own,

add a pic,

embellishment (silhoutte cut with MTC),

or quote to it.

Make enough for 8 people, 

so each person got one.

We had a blast!!!

Last page of book with list of recipes and each MB member name.
