Two more gifts Complete!

Have you worked with one of the 7Gypsies trays? You really ought to try one. I admit I was a bit intimidated at first, but I had so much fun creating these I am going to have to make one for myself now!
I wanted to do something more personable for my sons girlfriends and decided what better gift to give them than their favorite guys!
This is my younger son and since his girlfriend is 15 I wanted something with a bit of fun teen flair to it. She is planning to paint her room purple so I chose a black tray and added black, purple, and silver accents with LOTS of bling!

Since my older son and his girlfriend are quite a bit older, I went with a bit more romantic flair. I wasn’t happy with the photos I have on hand so I left some bare spots to add photos after the holidays.

Trying to keep things balanced between the girls, I kept most of the details as similar as possible. You will find lots of rubons, Spellbinders Diecuts, bling, pearls, stickles, and goodies of all sorts!

Almost there!! I just need to finish up the videos for my daycare parents!

Hello!! Popping in with another quick post! I’ve completed two of my scrappy Christmas gifts, just one more to go! I am hoping to get it completed tomorrow *crossing my fingers for a good mojo day*
How are you coming on your shopping? With all the storms we’ve had here in MN, I’ve resorted to shopping online this year. I have to say that I missed the hustle and bustle of the crowds, but it sure has been fun having package after package arrive on my doorstep!
While waiting for my packages to arrive, I took some time to create some tags. I just love these guys! I cut the gingerbread out using my Cricut and the Dress UP Paper Dolls Cartridge. I shaded the edges and the center of the “cookies” with a bit of Distress Ink and chalked some cheeks. Next I outlined, added some trim, a bow, and stickled some chipboard hearts for buttons.

I'm off to wrap my gifts, and hang my tags!

Thanks for stopping by!

Pink Goodness

Such a busy time of the year! Between holiday preparations, working on final bookwork for taxes, attending my son's basketball games, and working on a couple secret projects, I did manage to squeeze out a couple of baby cards!

I used a mixture of Pink Paislee Love Stuck and Sweetness….How appropriate for a little girl!

I am addicted to all my Spellbinders dies. Isn’t that Lacy Circle just too precious?! I cut my dies with Core’dinations cardstock and sanded the edges, then attached with pop dots.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a super scrappy day!
