Sneak Peak

So I am very excited that the Occasions Catalog is just around the corner!  But that does mean the Holiday Catalog will soon be gone:(  So don't forget to order now if there is anything you can't live without!!!  So on to the sneak peak...
I really like this new butterfly...It seemed a little big in the catalog, but it is PERFECT for that quick and simple card.  I embossed it with Pool Party embossing, added a little sentiment in white and a ribbon!  Be sure to stop in this week for all new products and new samples!

Class Treats

So having three kiddos in school is getting a little crazy when it comes to the holidays...class treats, class parties, and teachers gifts!  I made 50 of these skittle sticks!  That's 200 mittens!  As cute as that little mitten is I would say I am a bit burnt out on it!  

They are simple(which they had to be for my sanity) but they still turned out pretty cute!

Craft Project Central

Here is a great little box and card.  Perfect for that little something!  Be sure to go to Craft Project Central and get you December tutorials!

Christmas Ornament Card

So I have had this Holiday Frame Embossing folder since October...and FINALLY used it!  (please ignore that I did it on this card upside-down) LOL.  Anyways It looks OK I think because the ornament is covering the fact that there is a tree on the frame.  
I did use one of my favorite sets though...Ornament Keepsakes. 128048(w) or 128051(c).  I love that it has coordinating framelits! 127816.

Thanks for stopping in!

Club Cards!

In the month of December I "take off" from having club.  I used to hold them but most people can't make it.  So I throw a little Christmas party for the members all on one day and hope for the best!  So with that I do my "Christmas" themed club in November.  This year I fell in love with this little group of Snowmen-Frosty Friends #128117.  They are so darn cute!
 Above it the card I did with my regular club.  Its clean and simple but I think the colors really make it pop!  Below I stepped it up a bit.  Added a ribbon slide form the holiday catalog and popped up two of the snowmen.  I also changed the colors up a bit:)  

Thanks for stopping in.  Be sure to swing by tomorrow to see the 3-d projects we did!

Artisan Design Team December 2012 Project 3

Here is my third post of the month with the fun goodies we got from Stampin' Up! this month.  I LOVE this pack of fabric!!!  And I love the way that all the colors work together, so I decided to make a headband out of it.  
What do you think?  (I know the cute model helps:)

 Here is a close up of all the flowers.

And here is Makai again...being a monster!  I took a few pictures but most had her tongue out or monster faces:)  O'well!  See you again tomorrow!!
