Christmas Place Settings

Good day,

So if you are following my blog you know that my hubby and I are hosting our family Christmas for the very first time. I am so excited to have everyone here on Christmas day!! Of course I wanted to personalize my table so I just HAD to make place cards. I just painted my dining room a similiar colour to Baja Breeze (for those of you that use SU stuff). It's a bit lighter I'd say though. Anyhow, I am trying to have my table match somewhat so my Christmas colours are blue and brown. Not really festive is it?? Well I am adding pewter/silver to it as well. All the shimmer......will look so nice!! I will have to take a picture of my dining room table all set up and post it for you all to see.
As you can see I did all the ladies place settings the same, the guys and then the kids. All blue and brown BUT all different somehow. I gave the ladies the dazzling diamonds...seemed fitting. These are simple 3X3 pieces of paper folded in half and for the kiddy ones I folded a piece of DSP and simply punched it with my scallop punch. So easy!!

Enjoy your day and Christmas is just around the corner!!

So yesterday was a crazy snow storm here where I live which meant we got sent home from work!! YAAAHHHHHHHHHHOOOOOOOOOOOOO!! That enabled me to get some things done around the house. MUCH NEEDED!!

So again this is a Christmas card we did in my Christmas card class. This is my favourite one I think. I truely believe it's because it's Kiwi Kiss, number one and number two, my only other colour is Very Vanilla. SIMPLE, not fussy at all. I just added my dazzling diamonds ( as usual ) to the ornaments and voila. Easy!! If you notice the tops of my ornaments are simply punched out corners of the square scallop punch by SU. I couldn't think of anything to use and that just popped in my head. Works doesn't it??

Anyhow I hope you like it.
Enjoy your weekend. More snow to come tomorrow says the weather man!!

So Simple Christmas Card

Hey all!!

So another Pacific Point Christmas card. I am loving that blue especially with a snowflake stamp!! This was a card we made at my stampers club. SOOOOO easy it's silly. My goal was to make the snowflake look like an ornament...added the ribbon to help the effect. What do you think? As always on my Christmas cards I added my Dazzling Diamonds. How can you not???!!!

Well enjoy your day and not long now until the 25th!! HO HO HO!!

A Mature Christmas Card

Hello all and happy Monday!!

So I've seen this little poinsettia made with the stamp set Doodle This all over the place. I thought I'd give it a try. I have to say this is not a typical card I would make. In fact I wasn't sure I liked this particular paper in the Holiday Treasures pack but it did grow on me. I think this is a more MATURE card. Guess that means I'm immature LOL!!
I hope it's something you like. Of course I added my dazzling diamonds to the pointsettia, it just added that little bit of Christmas.

Take care and enjoy your Monday.

Snowswirled Snowflake Card


As I post this today the snow is coming down outside and it's BEAUTIFUL. Of course being inside in my PJ's and not actually out in it is nice.

This was a card we did in my Christmas card class. Easy layout and of course Chocolate Chip is in it which I love, love, love. I added some Dazzling Diamonds (a must for a Christmas card) to the snowflake. It uses the SU set called Snow Swirled. I must say I have gotten a lot of use out of this beautiful set. Then I just ran the Whisper White piece of cardstock through my cuddle bug using the snowflake embossing folder. It just gave it some dimention.

Hope you like it and I hope you are enjoying your weekend.
Take care!!

Ornament Card

Hi all,
Well I have survived 2 days of work and I have to say so far so good. I'm keeping busy with loads to do. I must say my stamping has taken a back seat which I am sad about BUT I plan to do some on the weekend for sure!!

This is a short post because time is of the essence. Lunches to make, kids stuff to pack up for tomorrow and the list goes on.

This was a card we made in one of my Christmas card classes. I have to say that in the end I added glitter on the ornament and it made it waaaaaaaaaay nicer...sorry I don't have an updated picture to show you :(

Anyhow, I hope you like it!!
Take care and enjoy the remainder of your week.

Season of Friendship Christmas Card

Well folks....this is it. My mat leave has officially come to an end and as you view my blog today I am back at work. BOOOOO!!! I can honestly say I have NO idea where this past year went. All I can say it was the best ever and I love my girls. I'm so darn lucky it's sick. Yesterday was a wonderful last day off as we celebrated Berlynn's Baptism. It was a great day spent with family. The house was full of laughter, kids, food and just the closest people around me. What more could I ask for on my last day of mat leave?

OK enough MOOSH. Let me sop up my tears and move on to the card.

I LOVE THIS SET!! Season of Friendship. AWESOME!! It's a pretty simple card, simple layout and simple stamping. I hope you like it and HAPPY WINTER!!

Enjoy your day and hugs the ones you love.
