My Christmas cards 2009

These are my Christmas cards this year for our immediate family and close friends. The picture was taken at Thanksgiving of our small little family! I think I cut out 24 of the adorable little penguin's using a WPC cut file that I got from my friend over at JillsPaperJems Cutting Corner. I cut them using my Pazzles Inspiration.

I also used Diamond Glaze, Stickles, and
DecoArt Snow Writer to detail the cute guys.

Glad Tidings

Another layout for eBay and I priced it a little lower this time because I didn't piece the title like usual. But the reindeer are as cute as ever! I intended to have one a boy and one a girl (if you look at their eyes). The boy is trying to give the girl another present! hehe I thought it was sweet!


I also have these Reindeer in file format so
you can cut them out yourself too!
Check them out over at the
The Paper Piecing Beehive

Here is a double sided hidden tag for journaling and
a photo on the other side...

THANKSgiving Turkey layout

I think I'm on a roll... I have another layout ready for eBay! It is a very similar to last year's, but I changed up the cardstock colors, did different ribbon, & added cuter eyes to the turkey's. I still have these Turkey cut files for sale over at The Paper Piecing Beehive along with the darling Pilgrim & Indian Accessories.

Shhhh, I cut this title & my turkey's last year...
I just changed their eyes! :)
I love my Cuttlebug Embossing Folders...
the Swirl is the best!
Sewing & brads...
I love popdots!

Family Traditions layout

I am going to be posting this layout on eBay which I have done in a VERY long time! I designed these Pilgrim & Indian outfits to fit my bears and bunnies which you can get the files over at...
The Paper Piecing Beehive

If you don't want want the whole layout but want the Pilgrim and Indian paper piecings separately, I will be selling them on eBay as well but precut & unassembled. I will have a link soon or you can just email me if you are interested.

I hope you enjoy my layout but most of all, I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

NEW KNG kit... Magic of Christmas

I love, love, LOVE this kit... I know I always say that, but I really do love this one! If you would like to see what is included in the kit and another example visit...

Kits N Giggles
to get the latest kit called
Magic of Christmas

And FYI...
we still have a few more kits left from summer
& Halloween, so get them while you still can!

Here is what I made using the kit...
Shay was 2 in these pictures... she sure has grown!
The snowman (Frosty) and the gingerbread man (Gingy) are the included precut unassembled paper piecings. The tree is part of the template that you can trace.
Popdots are wonderful to make these squares... well, pop!!
These are the things I used to spruce up my paper piecings. Of course I inked the edges, but then I used a white Zig Writer Chalk Collection to trace Gingy and highlight the scarf & hat of Frosty. I also used red Diamond Glaze on Gingy's nose and pink on the star on the tree. But what was really cool was using Snow Writer (you can get at Michaels) on the white frosting of Gingy to make it look like real frosting... so fun! You could use puffy paint too!
Here are so more things I used:
Swirl Cuttlebug Embossing Folder for the tree
Imaginese Glitter Brads for the buttons on Gingy and the tree.
Little black brads for the cole on Frosty

Major Cutie Orange Tutu set...

A couple years ago, I saw this onesie and thought of some friends of ours who didn't have kids yet (he is in the military), but I liked it so much I bought it and saved it. Those same friends are now expecting a baby girl. So I pulled it out expecting to give it to them but realized I needed to girlie it up a bit, so I made the orange tutu and the cute orange polka dot flower hair pretty. I LOVE it and think it is adorable... what do you think, do you think they'll like it??

NEW Kits N Giggles Kit... Popsical Paradise

So this is our NEW kit for this month over at Kits N Giggles. Oh, I just LOVE it!! I had these perfect pics to put on it of a day out in the backyard with the kids playing in the pool and eating popsicles with the neighbors and their cousins. Ashley did such a wonderful job with the penguin paper piecing while I designed the cutout sheet that works so nicely with the patterned paper! I was so excited that I got a layout AND a page out of this kit and I think if I would have tried harder I could have gotten another page out of it!
So head over to
Kits N Giggles
and get this kit... you will LOVE it too!

Here is my example...
I used my Cuttlebug embossing folders & Stickles
on the swimsuits that the penguins are wearing...I added the buttons from my stash...I used pop-dots to add a bit of character...

Here is my extra page that I squeezed out of the same kit.
I love these pics of my sweet little Shay...
I LOVE Stickles... can you tell?!
Again... visit Kits N Giggles to get this kit!
