Day 13? It’s A Baker’s Dozen.

Alrighty. We actually have one more project (no freebie, sorry) to share for our 12 Days of Christmas. A sort of Baker's Dozen, if you will. :) Marcy has this loooovely packaging idea to share today!       That color scheme and layering of this package is amazing! Like...seriously. It is absolutely divine. I never would have thought to layer all those tags in different sizes like that. I absolutely love it! Here's what Marcy has to say: As soon as I saw the word art stamp from the Believe stamp set I knew it would work great as a belly [...]

Day 12 | Our Last Day

Oh my! I can't believe it's our last official day of the 12 Days of Christmas! It's been quite a ride, hasn't it?

It's been an incredible time and I thank you all for making it so great. A huge thanks to our creative girls for sharing their talents too. They are just remarkable! So now we are at our last freebie, our Merry Little Christmas Cars print.     You [...]

Day 11 | Words Are The Best Element

I've said it a bazillion times (okay, maybe not a bazillion, but close), words are truly my favorite element. They are the perfect way to accent your page while 'saying' more about your page. What can be better than that? If a photo speaks a thousand words, at least more words can help it along, right? So when I saw this final project from our holiday guest, Kim Jeffress, I was in heaven! Words everywhere!           perfection. I don't even know where to begin. Just look at all that eye candy! All the details. The mix of [...]

Day 10 | Oh Deer!

We are on our 10th day of Christmas folks! Can you even believe how fast this has gone? Just two more days! You guys have been so awesome. Your love for this time of year here is why I do what I do. I appreciate each and every one of you. mwah! And now I have a question...do any of you still get excited when you see a deer? Granted, I know that many people don't live where the deer and the antelope play, but there are many that do. And you would think that seeing a deer would finally become [...]

Day 9 | Deck Your Halls + Envelopes

I started a new tradition a few short years ago. Well, I guess it was technically Dan that started it when he bought a Christmas wreath from our local nursery. It was one of those hand-to-the-forehead moments when I wondered why we hadn't ever done it before...to bring in that fresh pine scent since we no longer do fresh Christmas trees. So from that point on, on Small Business Saturday, I've loved going and getting a wreath. Sadly, this year's isn't lasting as long. Not exactly sure why. But you know what won't wither and brown? die cut wreaths. ;) [...]

Day 8 | Before Christmas

There are so many activities happening before Christmas. So many place to go, people to see, food to eat, Santa...all that.  Festivities abound. Such festivities might include seeing Christmas decor around town, like lights or a giant Christmas tree, like our super creative Paige Evans here! I'm gonna let Paige tell us all about.... I've got a new layout to share today using a pretty wreath cut file from the the Kerri Bradford Studio Christmas Calendar!     First I die cut the wreath from plain 12x12 white cardstock as well as these patterned papers from Turn the Page: Paper [...]

Day 7 | Home For The Holidays

This is the first year of our lives where we have children that live away and are coming home for the holidays. Seems like such a weird concept. But how exciting is it to have people come to your home for the holidays? Parties, dinners, family, friends...there's nothing like being at home for the holidays. Can ya feel the love? So today we have a little bit of home-ee type items going on. Let's do something in the party realm with our darling Miss Maggie!         How stinkin' cute are these invitations?! My creative team constantly wows me. I [...]

Day 6 | That’s A Wrap

Whoa. Whoooooaaaa. Don't get your knickers in a twist. We're not ending our 12 Days of Christmas here on Day 6. All is well. We just seem to have a little theme a-goin' on here. It's all about wrapping up those gifts! And here to show us some gift-wrapped amazingness is Melanie Blackburn! She's showing off some stamped tags in very fine fashion. Take a look.         Oh sweet figgy pudding, those tags are awesome! I particularly love the combo of stamps on the sleigh ride tag. That dimension is divine. Let's hear what Mel has to [...]

Day 5 | Add That Touch Of Hand-Lettering

Hand-lettering is all the rage right now. And as I recently took my very old iPad out to do today's hand-written freebie, I dreamed about what it would be like to some day (soon) have the iPad Pro to letter on (I was suppose to have it last year...semi-long story for another day). I've been using my almost eight-year-old iPad for nearly as long to do my handwritten words. I feel so archaic now. But soon I shall join the masses and get more creative with hand-lettering. I feel like I'm going from a rotary phone to an iPhone. I can't [...]

Day 4 | A Little Christmas Giving

Christmas is all about the giving--from the biggest to the smallest to the gifts of the heart. And at this time of year it's always fun to have something ready for just such an occasion. Take a look at these wonderful cards that Nichol has made using the Christmas Greetings 1 and Christmas Greetings 2 stamp sets!         I love the simplistic elegance of these cards! Similar, but each one being unique. And wow...the embossed phrase! I love that! Let's hear what Nichol has to say: Clean and simple cards bring the focus and attention to the [...]
