Christmas goodie holders

For Megan's Christmas (Holiday) Party I decided to make these cute little goodie holders. Here are 3 of the 27 different ones I had to make. Well they aren't completely finished yet, but you get the idea. There are 4 of each paper design. The tube part is actually paper towel rolls (cut into 2 pieces) and toilet paper rolls. Thanks for looking.

A few Christmas Gifts

I searched and searched for an idea as to what to make Megan's teachers for Christmas this year. We were going to make the cookies in a jar, but then you have to worry about food allergies and likes/dislikes. I didn't want to do a food gift set or even a perfume type gift set. Again, you never know about allergies. Here is what I decided to do for her teachers. Thanks for looking.


A Panda Christmas Gift

After Megan's Karate Instructor told me how much he loved panda bears and loved his birthday card I decided to make his Christmas gift similar to his birthday card. I used the Pagoda Cricut Cartridge and made a 9" tall panda bear. I also used the cartridge for the bamboo. I put the panda and bamboo on a back drop and put it in a 11" x 14" frame. Thanks for looking.

A couple Asian themed birthday cards

I made a couple birthday cards for Megan's Karate instructor. I hope you enjoy looking at them.

Another Baby Boy Brag Book

I have fallen in love with making and giving these baby brag books. This is going to be my standard baby gift. No matter how many I do though no two will be the same. I always change the paper, the way I do the matts, and the emblishments I use.

The Diaper Cake

Can you guess how many diapers were used to make this diaper cake? At the baby shower we used the diaper cake to play a game. The person who won the game guessed the exact amount of diapers.
The answer is 65!

Baby shower card

Here is the baby shower card I made for my Sister-in-Law. It matches the baby boy brag book and also the diaper cake I made for her.  Thanks for looking.

Baby Boy Brag Book

My sister-in-law is having a baby boy and for her shower gift I decided to make a brag book. I used New Arrival for the babies, stork, and little animals. I also used a sheet of baby emblishments and some ribbons. The papers are from the single sheets section at Hobby Lobby. The babies faces are not finished because I have to get my fine tip markers back from my sister-in-law and give them rosey cheeks. Thanks for looking.

A special first birthday card for my niece

This is a card that I made for my niece's first birthday. The colors are the same colors (maybe slightly bolder) as the ones in her room. I used A Child's Year to create the card. I chose the verse because of the scream and shout line. She is always screaming and shouting while she plays. Thanks for looking.
