Close To My Heart Christmas Card

What a beautiful Christmas card I received from Close To My Heart! And on top of that I also got a beautiful silver bracelet with heart charms. Close To My Heart sends out gifts and hand-made cards to all of the directors. What a special surprise!!!

Girls Christmas Photo

Every year I try to come up with a new idea or prop for our Christmas card. This year I found the silver, glittery snowflakes at the Dollar Store. They were perfect and went so great with the dresses. And what a deal! I then strung them up with fish-line and hung them. Now I need to get busy on getting my Christmas cards out!

Mystery Hostess Project

We made this 2 page layout at my Mystery Hostess Night last week. The paper used Creative Basics Evensong Collection. Stamp sets used were the December Word Puzzle D1313
, and the Oct. stamp of the month. For the "Joy" title I used the font Daydream from the Font CD, Volume 2. And of course I had to use sparkles. The sparkles were clear. I just colored over the tops with a red permanent marker. I love these sparkles!

This layout is done using CTMH's new program called Workshop On The Go. The paper used is Evensong and looks so great with photos. Now I just need to get my photos on there!

This workshop will be taught at my house Dec. 18th and is also available to be mailed to you. If you would like more info., please contact me.

O Christmas Tree

I have been busy decorating for Christmas and pulled out this Advent Christmas Tree that I made 2 years ago. It is one of my daughters favorite decorations! Each day they love to pull out the treats inside of each box.

I made the tree using match boxes. I don't think I will ever run out of I simply covered the boxes with paper and then decorated the front and back of each box. Each box was done with different decorations. Hope you enjoy! If you make one for yourself, I'd love to see what you come up with!
