You might have just hopped over from Lisa's blog. If so, you are in the right spot. If not, just hop on and keep hopping. You will get to see everyones blog if you continue. I LOVE Christmas and I LOVE our Christmas Stamps. I made this fun little $$$$ holder using A1110 A Timber

Start with a sheet of cranberry cardstock 6.5"x3"
Score at 3 1/8" and 3 3/8"
Sand edges
Using Mistletoe paper pack adhere 2.5"x2.5" square of desired pattern to front
Cut strip of NE Ivy cardstock 1"x 3" and edge distress
Add to lower edge of card front
add Circle with Happy Holidays and gift stamped off the lower edge
Embellish with a sparkle
(or decorate front of $$$ card as desired)
Tie hemp around spine
Slip as much $$$$ as you want inside your card

This is a VERY SIMPLE idea that will work up so quickly!! I figured with the busy time of year.... and so many on our Christmas list we dont know what to get.... this was the answer. Enjoy!!!

New Memories in the Making

Well, just a few days after my last post, this little doll came into the world a little bit early, and with a DRAMATIC entrance. I have been in Idaho playing with my newest little grand baby!! Isnt she just precious!! I sat and looked at her for hours.... So many fun memories to look forward to and LOTS of scrapbook layouts in the future! In fact one morning while she was sleeping in my arms (my shift) I sat with the computer by my side and created 10 new layouts using Studio J scrapbooking. Check it out!! It is so fun and easy, I did it ONE HANDED!!
