I've been stampin the day away here in MD. My Friend Stacy placed a group Artful Inkables order I'm guessing close to a year ago and I ordered this really cute set and I'm just now using it. I'm such a pack-rat I buy things and then they just hang around. Oh well its seen ink now! I just love this little critter. The name of the set is Critter Country by the way.
Artful Inkables stamp set Critter Country, all CS and DP is SU ribbon is also SU. Copic Markers, MM brads, red tape and dimensionals are from TexasJodyLynn.
This is my 3rd year making these cute glass ornaments. This year I used Santa from the SU set Jolliest Time of the Year. I used Black Stazon ink on Transparency film. Colored with Copic markers, the white is Liquid Applique and a little glitter. Make sure you let your Liquid Applique dry over night you get a much better puff much more even and pretty. The snow is Martha Stewart Snow Glitter. Glass ornaments are from AC Moore the large ones are my favorite.
Everything else in the baskets is some of our favorite Holiday cookies and snacks.
Chocolate covered pretzels, Snickerdoodle Cookies, Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies, Cake Balls, No Bake Cookies, and Chocolate Filled Candy Canes. Yes we love Chocolate! LOL
These are for the boy's teachers and bus drivers. They are fun little gifts. Pretty quick and easy to make. Just lots of steps.
I could have saved lots of CS by just making the bag topper but I think this looks better.
To make these little gifts you need to cut your CS base 6 1/8 x 11in. Score @ 8 1/2. Fits the Large SU cello bag. Also used the small cello bag for the marshmallows on the inside of the package.
Stamps used SU snowman wheel, Brown Stazon ink pad, CS is SU, SU markers, BG Figgy Pudding DP, SU cello bags, Amuse Ribbon, Offray Ribbon, Gold gel pen, Star Dust gel pen, Red Line tape, Red line sticky dots, Hot Cocoa packet, Chocolate Bar, Candy Cane, Marshmallows,

This is our big tree. I didn't feel like moving the living room around so it's in the dinning room.
This is the boy's tree. All of the handmade/kid type stuff goes on this tree.
Yep that's a pile of gifts yet to make it to the Post Office. Can't find the right size box!
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!
I almost have everything done. Almost.....I still can't find everything beginning to think yet another box went missing in the move. I still have some finishing touches to do and well the tree has been up for over a week and already needs to be redecorated between Nate and Keke it looks bad already. I'm going to do some holiday baking today. Not sure how much of the 25lbs lost will stay gone after today......
Hope all of you are having fun with this very Merry Holiday Season. Also hope all of you remember the real meaning of the season it's not the tree, lights, gifts that are important it's the cookies that count like two points each!
Well the boys are in heaven they are just lovin' the snow. We moved this spring and the first thing my DH said when he looked into the backyard was I can't wait for winter this is the perfect sledding hill. Well he didn't have to wait long. The first week of December and we have snow!
I'm always in charge of the handmade gift for the Pastor at my Mothers church....no idea how this happened but....it did. So when my Mother told me she is making a hot cocoa themed gift basket for him this year this idea came to mind. Really easy to make these and I found the tiles on sale at Lowes .20 each not bad less than a $1 for the set of four. That's a nice gift that's easy on the bank acct. Always a good thing!
Tiles for Lowes in Rialto Beige, Stazon Brown ink pad, Clear matte finish spray sealer, felt feet from the dollar tree.
I sent my Mom one of these books for her Birthday and
I got a call yesterday asking for 2 more. So I made this one last night. I'm glad she liked hers so much she needed more. LOL
These are really easy to make just lots of steps.
For this I used my Bind It All and a 3/4 in coil in silver.
Some old SU DP, Ribbon is from Offray, Mod Podge, white paint, I print my own calendar pages, note books come in packs of three at big lots. SU ink in Bashful Blue, Old Olive, Always Artichoke, Bordering Blue.
Stamps used, Verses Rubber Stamps BB0420-E, SU Eastern Blooms.
Jeaneen a local MD lady gave me this really cute Making Memories Advent kit. Really cool and what a time saver this is!
Jeaneen doesn't have a blog or I would link you to her now sorry but you can look her up on SCS as JTAX.
Ok to the project...We countdown to Christmas so that's why my numbers are the way they are. My kids like all kids I'm sure ask everyday How many days till Christmas. This is how I deal with this question. It's what works for them. I wanted to keep it pretty simple so we could focus on the number and not the pretty stuff so that's why so little embellishments. This is a good size box I was able to get two small candy items in each drawer one for each of my boys so worked out great. This is by Making Memories I have no idea where Jeaneen found it but I'm sure it's online and in big box stores. The name is Fa La La Advent Calendar box and came with the ribbon, rub-ons, and brads. The only thing I added was the Prima flowers because we could still see the number the kit came with paper poinsettia flowers so you really don't have to buy anything with this kit.
Extras used Red Liner Tape, and my crop-a-dile, star dust pen, my bow maker.
