Oh my, I am in trouble this month. To say that I love Doodlebug Designs, does not explain my feelings for this brand adequately. I HAVE to have this month's incentive gift--the 12 pack crushed velvet flock set. LOVE it! Those Bazzill In Stich'z templates are an absolute must as well! Let's be honest, I want one of everything in this catalog supplement. Check out my main website to download the complete supplement.

'Tis the season of the Christmas card. I have three holiday card workshops on the horizon and I don't want to teach the same darn cards over and over again. Despite the illness that has taken down 3/4 of my household (everyone but me), I managed to entertain the little ones just long enough to make one card sample today. This card is not something to be sent through the USPS unless you want to pay extra for thickness (what an infuriating rule, by the way).
Supplies used: Die Cuts With A View (card, patterned paper, textured cardstock), Bazzill Basics (stocking template), Jo-ann Stores Inc. (ribbon), Hero Arts (acrylic stamp), Hobby Lobby Stores Inc. (snowflake), DMC (floss)

I love Fancy Pants Designs! This journal feels so nice...it almost made me want to keep a journal. I used to be really good about writing down all the cute details about the boys and the funny things they would say. There must be 3 composition books floating around here, one quarter full of my everyday observations. Even if I can't commit to daily journal entries, I still have fun decorating their exteriors!
Supplies used: Fancy Pants Designs (journal), Cosmo Cricket (patterned paper, velvet ribbon), Die Cuts With A View (textured cardstock), Bazzill (paper flower), Making Memories (button), K & Co. (chipboard stickers, chipboard embellishments)

Here are two more fun projects--one clothespin photo holder and one simple card design. I've made 10 of these Christmas cards for an upcoming holiday bazaar, but I love this desing for any occasion.
FYI--My sewing machine is finally up and running again. Expect to see lots of sewing in my upcoming posts. Not traditional sewing with fabric, of course. However, I do hope to finally use this sewing machine for fabric at least once before this year is over!
