Just posted this cute album - Its a Vintage Tree I have been feeling very traditional this Holiday Season. A lot has been going on this past month, I have been taking care of an old family friend who is very sick. She and my mom were friends, and I am the only one she knows here in Florida. I think its brought back some childhood memories for me with my family and when we were kids .... anywho I guess it is making me nostalgic.
I used darker traditional red and green and added a lot of poinsettias and some florals. I distressed the edges and added some pockets. Hope you like it.

Finished my cards for the Scrapbook Place. We will be having a monthly card club and this class is being taught December 12th.
You get four cards, a gift bag, and a wood mounted stampendous stamp. I will be using smooches, and copics to teach you the how to's and the cards will be stamped with 3 very cute stamps from stampendous. I also used Reminisce paper to makes these oh so shiney cards and some coordinations cardstock
So if you are in the area, come on by. Feel free to email me with any questions.
Been working on some Christmas cards to teach over at Scrapbook Place this past week. Here is a sneak peek of one of the cards. I used Reminisce, Coordinations cardstock, May Arts ribbon, Tsukineko and Stampendous.
More cards to come in the next couple of days, so keep a look out.
Just finished making this cute MITTEN SHAPED ALBUM. I tried to give this album a vintage old fashion christmas feel, let me know what you think. I did have fun making this mini album which is made of chipboard. I distressed each page and then put a coat of white wash on the edges of the chipboard album.
Be sure to be on the look out for what Daphna did with her mitten shaped album "Snow Mitten". We thought it would be cool to have us both make a shaped album so that you get two different styles to give you some inspiration.

I made this cute tag album using the 7 Gypsies chipboard album. I used a kit that I put together last year to sell with directions. But since I get bored very easily of course I ADDED A TON more bling and embellished and changed around some of the pages. I only have two more kits left of this winter tag book kit on etsy. So do what I do make the kit then go back and ADD more bling, buttons, or 3D winter embellies that you have laying around.
I am listing this tonight on ebay for our PFOP Challenge "Home For The Holidays"
Look for my "Winter Wonderland" tag book and all the other holiday treats that PFOP has up for auction.
The Scrapbook Place is gearing up for Christmas!! My talented sister Idette is teaching a class there on 11/21 so if you live in the area go check it out. Idette has made an adorable Christmas Present Album that is very embellished and has an elegant feel to it.
Idette added so many extra touches to make this album beautiful. You have to go and see it in person, and take the Class !!!
Well it is that time of year when you start seeing all the commercials for Christmas. I always start feeling a little excited and mentally start making my lists of what to buy for whom. I also start looking around for christmas card ideas; this year I am using Alvin & Company - Irene's Garden poinsettias. Every year I "plan" on making my own cards and start off great .... then time gets in the way and I only make half of what I had planned.
The design group I belong to PFOP is giving me the extra push I needed, we are having a card challenge on ebay. So yeah - I have started to make holiday cards.
This is what I just posted for auction. A handmade sewn card with gift bag set. I used basic grey, lots of ribbon, Irene's garden poinsettias, and jewels.
Thank you everyone for your comments. I plan on more blog candy coming up for December. Santa is busy collecting goodies as we speak (or write). Also I am getting busy with lots of new projects for the holidays so keep a look out for those too.
Now for the main event. The winner is .......... SANDIE !!!
Sandie send me a email with your address and I will mail out your package on monday.
I made some stamped leaf tags for Autumn using American Tag Co.. I thought that for those of you that are invited for dinner for the holidays and are bringing goodies to your hostess can add this pretty "Thanks" tag to your item. These tags would also look nice tied to your cutlery/napkin ring to dress up your holiday dinner table.
I embellished the tags with lots of ribbon, metal charms and chipboard buttons. I also distressed my tags, then added 3 colors of Glimmer Mist to them before stamping them with my leaf image. The leaf image was stamped both in Tsukineko Encore metallic gold and in Memories black dye ink from Stewart Superior.
P.S. The WINNER of the BLOG CANDY will be annouced tomorrow. I will post it first thing tomorrow morning. I also want you to be on the look out for a "Christmas" Blog Candy Give Away ... santa and his elves are collecting the next blog candy as we speak
