Just want to show everyone that I can make a scrapbook page without paper piecings lol. This page is using all Close To My Heart products, most of which is retired by now. 

This paper pack was not released during the fall/autumn catalog but I love the color combo for a winter page. The word WINTER is heat embossed.

 These are some of my favorites picture of Ali... I'm pretty behind on her book - think I'm still in 2009.

This layout is also using all Close To My Heart products and this is actual one of the workshops that you can purchase. You get everything you need in the package: paper, stamps, accessories. All you need is the ink and blocks.


Two Projects from me today! Crazy, right!?

Now head on over to JANET'S  blog !

Onto the show!

I have been working on this project for 3 days! I made 8 of them, some for co-workers and some for teacher's gifts. Each box contains 12 tags that can be used on Christmas presents.


This is an example of the tag can be attached to the package.The back of the tag has a To: and From: on it.

I used Lace Circle pattern from Little Scraps of Heaven for my tags. I loved that lace look and didn't have a punch for it. So ..... I cut them all out with my cricut. Then, stamped the images and sayings. Stamp images are from Papertrey Ink

Here is a side view of the box. It's only an inch think. I got the template from Splitcoast Stampers. The original box was 4x4 but I had to reconstruct the measurements to fit the size tag I wanted to make. My box ended up being a 5 x 5.


These are really easy gifts to make but very time consuming when you are making 8 of them lol!

Been working on these the last two night and finally finished them... all 25 of them! They are for my daughter's Kindergarten class. The template for the box I got from Split Coast Stampers. Very resourceful website! 
The stamped images are from Close To My Heart. My 5 1/2 yr old daughter stamped the pictures, colored them in and filled the boxes full of treats! Such a big helper!

 Here is close up....

and here is my little artist - this pic was taken at 10 pm so she's a little tired lol...

 I've seen these posted and I HAD  to try my hand at them! They are going to make GREAT Christmas presents. It's a burlap wreath. Now please don't laugh at mine - it is my first time making one....lol. Here are the directions I followed... or try to... They are very good directions - don't get me wrong - I just need to play with it a little. The one part they left out is how messy it can be to CUT burlap lol.
