Christmas Cards

Christmas is here!  I love celebrating the season with BIG meals and lots of dessert.  I guess I will have to run extra to keep all of the weight off!  I love to run first thing in the morning when the air is nice and crisp!  I am ready for some hot cocoa or cider.

 This is the last of my Christmas cards for this year.  I hope they inspired you to create something wonderful for your family and friends.
Wishing you and your family many blessing for this holiday season and for the next year!  I will be back blogging using some beautiful new paper featured in CTMH's Annual Inspiration that is currently available for purchase. 

Have a great holiday,

Holiday Cards

I have been staying busy this holiday season creating a lot of fun cards to give out to family and friends. 

 Everyone loves to get homemade cards.  Take some time and create your own to give out this year.

I used CTMH's Yuletide paper to create both of the above cards.  I hope you are taking some time to create your own Holiday magic this year.  I used my new Shin Shan markers to color the bling red on my card to make it look like berries. 

Your craft coach,


Holiday Magic

Have you gotten all of your shopping done?  Still working on mine.  So much to do and get done.  Tons of wrapping to get done as well.  Hopefully I can get it done this week.

Here are some cards I created using CTMH's Yuletide paper pack.
I used the Noel stamp set and colored in the letters using CTMH's Shin Shan markers

 I added some gold shimmer trim to spice up my cards and make them sparkle.

I used my Shin Shan markers and colored my gems right on the sheet and then added them to my card.  So now you can have any color sparkle you want.  You create however many you need using your clear ones.  How great is that?!

Time to get some shopping done.  See you soon!

Staying Busy

I know everyone is staying busy and trying to finsih up those last minute projects.  Where has the time gone?  Can you believe this year is almost over?  Here are some more cards from my workshop using CTMH's Snowhaven paper.

 This paper pack is so bright and pretty and uses colors like Glacier and Cranberry.  The scooter was stamped using Archival Black and the Make it Merry stamp set
I used the Best Christmas stamp set using Whisper stamp pad and I used the Cranberry stamp pad to stamp the Warm Wishes. 

I hope everyone is enjoying the season and getting to craft. I will be planning some crops for the upcoming year. I will post details here on my blog and on Facebook.

See you soon,

Here is another Christmas card using CTMH's Snowhaven paper.

I folded the top flap of my card back.  I stamped my Christmas tree using Best Christmas stamp set and matted it with cranberry card stock.  I colored in the hearts on my tree using CTMH's new Shin Shan markers.  I also lined the inside of the card with Snowhaven paper and stamped Peace & Joy using the same stamp set.

I hope you are enjoying your Christmas season.  Take some time to create and share with family and friends.

Till next time,

Christmas Season

Holy cow the Christmas Season is upon us!   I have my cards made, but I need to get them addressed and out the door before Christmas.  Have gotten yours done? 

Looking for inspiration?  I will be posting throughout the season so stayed tuned to my blog for updates.

 For these two cards I used CTMH's Snowhaven paper packet which uses: glacier, whisper, cranberry, white daisy.  I added some red shimmer trim and bling to complete them.
I just love polar bears!  He is handsome, isn't he?!
Till next time...
Happy Scrapbooking!
