The Stockings Were Hung...

Oh my, have you ever worked on a layout and do not know when to call it quits? Today, was one of those days.....I had to keep telling myself, Cher, step away from the layout! It is sometimes a trick to scrap a 8 1/2 X 11 page while using old 4 x 6  printed photos to take on the look of the 12 x 12 sketch. But if you look real hard at my layout, you may just see a glimpse of the beautiful sketch that Laura Whitaker created.

Here is the sketch at Stuck?! if you would like to play along

Product List:
MME: Cardstock and stickers
Stampin' Up!: Circle Punch
Recollections: Star

12 Day of Christmas Day 12

I can not believe that Christmas is only 9 days away. Still needing to wrap and bag some of my holiday gifts, I decided to head on over to SVGCuts to find the perfect gift bag file. This bag can be found in Mary's Silent Night Kit....and such a wonderful kit it is. I am also going to enter this fun bag in the Anything Christmas Die Cut Challenge at StuckOnUSketches. The only thing that I did not cut from the svg file was my wreath. Instead, I fussy cut the beautiful bird in a wreath that was an image on my paper.

Product List:
MME: Pinted cardstock from the "I Believe" Collection
AC Cardstock: White cardstock
Stampin' Up!: Ribbon

12 Days of Christmas Day 11

Wow, I can not believe that I only have two more days left of my 12 Days of Christmas projects. I hope that I was able to inspire you to create and even partake in some of these great challenges.
For my 11 Day of Christmas, I play along with My Mind's Eye Christmas Project challenge. I decided to make a stocking and fill it with a gift card and a sweet little candy cane. My papers and stickers that I used are from the Vintage Christmas collection which I absolutely loved. It is such a pretty collection with lots of old time images. It is definitely a must have for all of your Holiday layout, cards and craft projects.

Isn't that pinwheel the cutest thing ever? 

And here is my stocking all stuffed and ready to be gifted.

MME: Cardstock, and Stickers
Stampin' Up!: Dies and punch

12 Days of Christmas Day 10

For the 10th day of Christmas, I wanted to share this little gift that my friend made for me using her Curvy Keepsake Box die by Stampin' Up!. I loved it so much that I ended up ordering the die set for myself. You can do so many cute things with this die. All of the product that she used was Stampin' UP! Check out her blog for more information. Thanks Barbara!!

Now on to my layout:
I love Laura's designs so much. Every time I play with one of her sketches, I am always so pleased with the finish look of my page. In my paper stash, I found this beautiful, wintry Carta Bella Collection to play with. The color combo was the perfect match to the colors in my photos.

Here is a link to the Stuck?! sketch if you would like to play along. She is still having a Guest Design Team call too. I am also going to enter this in the Paper Issues challenge What the #@!$%&.
