Fa La La La La



I'm starting to make my holiday cards and this is the month!
Not only for taking note and giving thanks, but also preparing for all the holiday fun in December. 
I have to admit that when I get in the midst of holiday preparation, I do alot of card surfing and CASEing (Copy and Steal Everything).  That and entering lots of challenges, which help inspire me. 

I am excited about this card, because it's one of the few times that I got a chance to use my SMAK kit almost as soon as it arrived!  Just got it this week and it was perfect for what I wanted to do. 

If you are interested, following are the products I used for this kit.

Product Information
All the snowflakes are part of Unity's SMAK November 2012 kit.
"Christmas Wishes" is also Unity from Joy and Wonder
The ribbon is 3GirlJam Summer Sprinkles Crinkle Ribbon from the Seasons Bundle.  
Everything else is Stampin' Up and I even took the time to add a little stitching to boot!

Speaking of challenges, if you haven't already, take a look over on the 3GirlJam Challenge Blog and submit your wonderful creation today!  They have really great prizes! (and I'm telling ya', if I wasn't a designer, I'd be stalking and submitting away cuz who wouldn't want some free stuff for their awesomeness, right?)

Well that's it for me today.  I have alot of blog trolling, comment leaving to do, and must get busy working on more cards and gifts!

I have crafting to do!

Mixed Up Media Chix - Summertime Blog Hop!

I have a fun project to share today!  Very excited about this one.  I've been working on it for over a week and...well...it's still not completely done, but it's getting there!
I've done this for a super wonderful friend that is going through a bit of a rough time.  She needs encouragement, so I'm putting together a little art journal to let her know how special she is.
And while this is a special gift, it's also part of a really fun blog hop I'm participating in with the other Mixed Up Media Chix!   Follow along...You'll truly be inspired.
So, if you need to start at the beginning:

Oh, guess what else is going on...
IT'S OFFICIALLY SUMMER.
IT'S MY ANNIVERSARY.
Anyway... Here are a few images of the pages in the journal.





Each page has a little journal page insert: 

This journal was made from lots of recycled stuff, including...wait for it....
Toilet Paper Rolls! (yeah, I know...totally cool, huh?)
Old Book Pages (including those from a h…

Big Birthday Celebration

Are you here having fun hopping along with 3GirlJAM in celebration of Julie's sister's big birthday year?  What a great little cyber party we're having!  (she's really a young thing, but she's having a great year)

Well, if not, you should be hopping along (I'll tell you why in a moment). There are some really wonderful birthday ideas from all of us on the design team...and including Julie's two girls, who are also having fun celebrating their aunt's birthday.

If you need to go back to the beginning, head over to the 3GirlJAM blog to get started.  Otherwise....


Here's my card in celebration her special year! I used blue crinkle ribbon from the newly released Red,White,Blue Bundle.It's such a nice shade of blue!  The white has bits of the red and blue in it (and I love the ribbon when it's like that)...and the red is also pretty awesome...like marachino cherries.  The little button in the center is from Pinque Peacock (love lady bugs!) and e…
