I think this would be an amazing family activity.  We’ve decided to take pictures of our elf, Jingles, and scrapbook his activities around the house in December.  Jingles comes just after Thanksgiving and leaves Jan 1 so it’s perfect for us.   Think of the special traditions, activities, and more that you can do with your family and put in this fun album.  What a great book to pull out a few months later to enjoy those meeting.

Season’s Greetings, Blog Candy, and Final Day

Season’s Greetings, Blog Candy, and Final Day

Where did this week go?  It’s the final day of the Winter Coffee Lovers’ Blog Hop.  Here are my last two projects for the hop plus some nummy chocolate and coffee for a lucky commenter.  My Season’s Greeting Card and Something To Perk You gift card holder are projects for teachers and people who work with SG during the school year and beyond.  We have been so blessed to have incredible support people who help SG to love learning and overcome some challenges.

CTMH created this awesome stamp “Christmas Paper Doll” and it has dies to match (thank goodness).   I remember having paper dolls as a kid.  It’s must as much fun now.  I colored in the leaves with pencils and did the holly with Liquid Pearls.  SG wanted to have “red streaks” in her hair for Christmas, so she has them.   I added a coffee cup for good measure as most teachers I know, live on it! =)  The sentiment is from Pretty Pink Posh and the cup from Technique Tuesday.

Next, I was creating some gift card holders for those lovely Starbuck’s gift cards.

The gift card holder is from Sugar Pea Designs. The bear and his cup, from CTMH.  He’s retired and will be forever one of my favorites.  The sentiment came from My Favorite Things Stamps.  Add Liquid Glass to his eyes and nose as well as the coffee to make them shiny.

Of course, I’ll get some of those super cute Holiday Cards from Starbucks, not my own, ancient card!  Just a small token of our appreciation for everyone’s hard work.

Blog Candy

If you are still hopping and have come to my blog on day 8, you deserve some amazing chocolate.  I found this great chocolate bar from Trader Joe’s and some lucky commenter will win it!  =)  I’ll draw a winner on Sunday evening from the commenters so you’ve got 3 days to make it here.

Be sure to stop and check out the Winter Coffee Lovers’ Blog Hop and even play.  There are some amazing artists and work on it as well as great sponsors.

December things to keep in mind:

Thanks for stopping by to checkout my creative world. Don’t forget to leave a comment for the blog candy as you hop through the awesome blogs in the Coffee Lovers’ Blog Hop.

Warm Holidays and Blog Candy

Warm Holidays

Happy Monday Morning, right?  Not without our coffee!  Here’s the 3rd card for the Winter Coffee Lovers’ Blog Hop.  Using some left over papers from the first two cards, I created this shaker card.  Beary Christmas and the Kraft paper go well together.  Used the dies to cut out the circle out and some transparency sheet to make the window.  3D foam tape is wonderful for making making the space for the toppings in the shaker.  The topping are from Kat’s Scrappiness, the Jack Frost collection. 


This cute bear comes from Punny Pals, CTMH’s Operation Smile Stamp Set.  $7.00 of every stamp set sold goes to Operation Smile, a wonderful non-profit that helps fix children’s smiles so they can eat, talk, and be a part of their communities.   The cap on the bear comes from a retired CTMH stamp set, Jack Cardmaking.  The little coffee cup and sentiment come from Pretty Pink Posh’s Christmas Friends.   Pretty Pink Posh is a Super Sponsor for the blog hop and I was lucky enough last Spring Hop to win this stamp set!  Now that I’m looking at the card as I blog, I’m going to go back and add some of the wonderful Beary Christmas Dots – the silver dots are glitter dots with the Cranberry and New England Ivy dots being enamel.  Just to add some bling.
