Happy Holidays to You!

Today is my Wednesday to post over at Just Imagine Crafts! This year I made quite a few Christmas cards with my Kreaxion's Punches...they just make it SO EASY!

Well, I hope you holidays are going well - surrounded by LOVE and JOY!

Monkeying Around With You!

'Look Who's 5!'
Isn't he just SO CUTE...
For this layout I used my {amazing} Kreaxion's Circle Cutter and cut ONE LARGE {Light Brown} circle and then proceeded to cut the {2} rings off of it. I then cut another LARGE circle {same size as the largest ring} out of the Darker Brown to let the Orange Cardstock peek through! For the 'tags' I used up some leftover Simple Stories {Happy Day} Paper, added some Studio Calico Wood Veneers {Arrows} and some {favourite} Lawn Fawn Washi Tape!

{Other Product:}
Core'dinations Textured Cardstock
Vintage {Manila} Paper
Smash {Date&Sentiment} Stamp
Thickers - Maple

The POSTS of Christmas Past

I decided to do a 3-part post over the next  3 FRIDAYS...The Posts of Christmas Past, Present and, let's step back in time...a whole year {lol}!
{'Here Comes Santa Claus'}
I love this tag...I made a bunch {in every colour imaginable!} - This Tim Holtz Santa has to be one of my favourite Christmas stamps! The paper is mostly cheapie dollar store stuff, Tim Holtz Distress Ink, maybe a little MME, a silk bow and some vintage typewriter parts!

{'Silver Bells'}
{one detail shot}
This was a good way to use up some odds and ends...small paper, odd numbers and other little trinkets that seem to pile up in my scrappy room - seriously, if you are looking for the odd, vintage item - FEEL FREE TO ASK! The idea with this advent is to add a SILVER BELL to the day that passes {they are on teeny, tiny hooks}. 
{just 1 of a few inside pages - they open and fold down and hold a number of wonderful, little journaling tags}
{the backside}
Wanting to make a postcard mini, I bought these off of ETSY.  I really haven't done anything with it yet, because I don't want to muck it up with {sloppy} is just so nice sitting on 'display' in my scrappy room! Perhaps this year I will use it as a Christmas Journal, sort of like a December Daily...who knows!

Well, these are my favourite projects of Christmas {Friday} I will post some Projects of Christmas Present {I had better get going on the whole creating thing...}!

Happy Days!

I don't sleep...well, it's a rarity. My {little} dog, however, sleeps all the time...{I get jealous}
