Just showin'

I'm posting a real quick Christmas planner I made up via the site eighteen25.blogspot.com

I normally don't do the pre-made stuff, 'cuz Im a DIY kinda gal, but these are done so well and it's so easy to print off the front label and put it all together in a Composition book.
 We're putting these together today. Should be fun!

Birthday Count Down Calendars

I made these two count-down calendars for some friends of ours.

The picture on this one is not as good, but turned out very cute!

Kid's love to open one box each day, six days before their birthday. My boys certainly love theirs!

Oh yes...it's almost the Christmas season. It happens at least once a year. ;)

I am getting things done... not one thing has been crossed off I had to cross off painting the kitchen. So far, that's the only project that's been axed. Every year at least two or three are voted off the island.

I made these cards over the weekend and I am including a fry box in this class. The notebook I showed will have to go to the next Christmas class; we won't have enough time for it with these cards.

 This first card was inspired by a stamped card I saw on Pinterest.  I thought the label would look cute with paper and not stamped. 

I wish I had more time and I'd make up 40 of these for my personal Christmas cards.

This card is a glimmery, shimmery white paper with a acetate window. The words are stamped inside the card.

This fry box I made last year before I got sick...finally, we get to make it! I will make one with a snowflake in Kraft brown to replace the owl...couldn't find it today. I will hunt it down and update the blog.

I'm going to post about birthday boxes later today...It's all the rage on our street. More soon......

F'all Occations 3

It's Fall! It's elections day! It's almost Christmas! 
I am just agog at how November casually strolled up and totally slapped me in the face with all these important events!
Don't tell me you saw it coming...

Last week my family went to Washington state to play in the water park for the weekend. We go every November, and we always have a fun, exhausting time. We also don't get any pictures, 'cuz I'm not crazy enough to take my camera or my phone into the water area. So no high-action shots, but lots of fun memories. I'm good with that.

 Before we left for a mini vacation, I was able to make two cards. I'll have more time tomorrow to make number 3 while my 'baby' is in Pre-K. SO check back in on Wednesday....Hope you voted!

F'All Occasion TWO

Howdy Howdy!
Loving the rain after 83 days of dry....it's a joy. Now ask me again in 5 months.....I'm sure I'll be tired of it!

There are two cards and a cute paper pumpkin in this next class. the Pumpkin can be used for all of your fall-related holidays.

Also, the two Halloween cards can easily be made into birthday cards, if you prefer.

Hope to see you Tuesday, October 23!

I bought two sheets of fun paper with 12 cards each...I think it is meant for Project Life as journal cards, but I bought them for a birthday class:

A card in-waiting

I made this card (among others) this summer....trying to figure out what I'm going to do with it...who gets it or if it goes in a class...if there will be a class. 

Everything is uncertain but certainly exciting! :)
Hope you enjoyed your summer!!!!!

Hit the Pinata

I made up three fun cards for class on July 24th. 

There isn't really a theme for the last two, but this card is definitely a birthday card. I love the cute little burrow pinata!

This is my last class for the summer. Enjoy the lovely weather and sun!

I made this colorful card a few weeks ago for my middle guy's second grade teacher. She retired and we were sad to see her go!

Today, Ladies First

This class theme of cards and bag are feminine...very much so.
 The first card is mounted on over-head transparency film. Kind of different. (There is paper inside to write on.)

 I have these "girl power" 3 x 4 cards that try to empower girls but also include the princess/fairy tale theme...it's always good to remind the world how strong you are, but still capable of remaining a dreamer. Maybe a "I'd-love -a-good-Prince-but-I-can-save-myself" kind of strength.

 The bird tag removes to become a bookmark.

And the bag unties to hold two bags of tea and a cookie.

 I have a few stamp choices, if you'd rather not make it a "thank you" bag. Birthday, Get Well, etc.

I hope you all have a Safe & Happy 4th of July!

Another flat and fabulous

Don't you just love it when you can create something that you envisioned in your mind and it actually resembles what you aimed for?

 I really love this card.

 There is balance in my creative flow....ommmmmmmm.

Flat and fabulous

Happy Memorial Day weekend!

This is what I made for my June 5th class:

As you can see it is stamped to be a graduation card, but really this card is customizable into a birthday or Father's Day card...all you do is stamp a different sentiment. 
The theme is flat cards with minimal raised embellishments, for easier mailing. 

 I enjoyed spending time with my family and thought of the sacrifices the men and women have made for our country. I hope you had a fabulous weekend, too...enjoy!
