'Free Spirit' Layout

It has been a long time since I actually worked on any scrapbook layouts! Lately, I have been working on Christmas presents and other craft projects so it was nice to get some of my own scrapbooking done! The pictures were taken back in June at cottage along Lake Huron. The layout is a design from Out On A Limb Scrapbooking. I just placed my first order with them a couple weeks ago and my page kits arrived a few days ago, so I was anxious to try them out! Their designs are just adorable!

Christmas Gift Bags & Birthday Card

I actually got some time in my scrapbook room tonight and worked on a few things! I made a couple little Christmas gift bags to put hot chocolate in. These are gifts for Paige's nursery school teachers. The adorable ornaments are from Hallmark. The gift tags were made by my friend Chantal and were made with a Stampin' Up ornament punch and stamps. The paper I used for the gift bags is from a DCWV Christmas stack. The bags themselves were made using the Plantin Schoolbook Cricut cartridge.
The birthday card is for my aunt and the stamped images are from CC Designs. I coloured the main image with Copic markers. The patterned cherry papers are from Stampin' Up.

Christmas Exchange

I just received an awesome package in the mail from my friend Chantal, and I had to share! Chantal had a great idea to have a Christmas swap, as she is a Stampin' Up consultant, and I am a Close To My Heart consultant, so we each gave each other a wish list of products we would like and then put packages together for each other to swap before Christmas. As you can see from the pictures, I received some awesome SU products, plus Chantal also sent me a ton of beautiful handmade goodies such as cards, tags, treats and more! Thank you so much Chantal!!

Here is the wonderful paint can I received from my partner, Rachel (badger42) on the Cricut message board! I love how she pieced tiny pieces of paper together to give the paint can a patchwork look. The can was also filled with lots of awesome goodies! Thank you Rachel!!

Twilight Paint Can Swap

Here is the paint can I created for the Twilight Paint Can Swap that I hosted on the Cricut message board. This is also the first project that I used my Gypsy for! I designed 'Twilight' with the apple image using the Gypsy, as well as each name: Edward, Bella and Jacob. For each, I used the Gypsy font. All patterned paper was from Close To My Heart. I filled this can with all sorts of Twilight goodies, scrapbooking supplies, and I gave my partner, Donna the book New Moon and I'm happy to report that she loved the can!
