Cards - Christmas & Winter

Creating With Paper - Baby It's Cold Here!

Michelle here wishing everyone a Happy Saturday!  

The weather here in So. Cal has been what we call "chilly".  Don't laugh, because in San Diego, well when it gets below 70, we are cold!  Plus the nights really are getting down to the low 50's so we are putting the flannel sheets on and a couple nights have had to use the heater! 

In keeping with trying to stay warm, I made a little sweater card out of our wonderful Cable Knit Embossing Folder.  That is one folder I have used a lot and love the results every time!  At a craft show recently, I saw a cute tree decoration that was a sweater and had to get it!  Our Den tree has quite a collection of cute little sweater ornaments, but they are not in the Ugly Sweater category that is for sure.  Anyway, got home one day and planned on making a card out of one of the little ornaments that I purchased!

It really reminds me of my college days - turtlenecks and belted sweaters..I am dating myself!  Here is what I used to create my sweater card...

So, I wanted to keep you all posted on our massive decorating project we undertake every year.  Here is a couple pictures from last night when Bill (my super creative hubby) turned on our lights.  Granted, there was more being done today, but he had the majority of the lights up.  Here are a couple pictures - hope I am not boring you - just so proud of my hubby - he works so hard doing this every year and it is mostly for the children of the neighborhood and our Grandkids.  All the neighbors ask for it every year, and he just keeps doing it bigger and better every year.  I tease him sometimes that we are on the verge of tacky...nahh...

That is all for today - tomorrow I will have another cute project to show you and will show off my Kitchen tree...did I say we go all out?  Yep, we do, but have a blast doing it!

Be kind to one another and make the time to have fun and do some Creating With Paper!

Creating With Paper what fun!

Michelle here with a couple quick little things that came out of the craft room this week.

My first attempt at using the Star of Light stamp set and the Starlight framelits was not only so fun, but I think a huge success!  Here is my card..

If you are on the fence about this bundle take it from me - don't be!!!  I almost passed it by until I saw some absolutely gorgeous examples on Pinterest and other Stampin' Up! demo sites.  It is an amazing bundle! 

Then I made a Pumpkin Witch for my friend who owns the salon I go to for my Mani/Pedi's.  Lili used to live across the street and she has become such a good friend, I was so sad when she moved.  At least I still get to see her twice a month.  He salon is decorated in Silver and Orange, so I tried to keep with her theme colors and still make her a Halloween display.  This looks just like her (her likes in the decorating venue - not physically (ha!)).

Well that is it for today.  Have a wonderful Tuesday everyone and remember to make time for some Creating With Paper!
