Christmas Surprise Bucket using the Big Shot

Good Morning everyone!!

Happy New Year's Eve!!! Wow hard to believe another year has come and gone! What a year it has been for our family too. We lost 2 family members this year, my dad's health has declined, my brother gave us a scare with a tumor, and dh had knee surgery. We became god parents, and had a nephew born!!! Its been a wild year but I am thankful for everything and the time we've had as a family together. Speaking of family I only have a few days left before everyone shows up for our christmas this weekend!! I am soo excited to see the kids and my cousins!!

Also tomorrow I will have a sneak peek for the Occasions Mini too!! Be sure to check back tomorrow and this weekend for the blog hop!

Today's share is another Christmas project I did! I've always wanted to decorate one of these buckets and I decided this year was the year to do it! lol They are a lot of fun to do too! I used my Big Shot along with Swirly decorative strip die and the Snowflakes set #2 sizzlit pack. For the paper I used our Merry Moments DSP, Real Red, Chocolate Chip, Old Olive and Garden Green. For the ribbon I used 1" double stitched real red, Chocolate Chip grosgrain, 5/8 Old Olive Grosgrain, 3/4 Real Red Polka-dot ribbon and 1 1/4" striped Old Olive grosgrain. I also put gold brads in the center of the snowflakes.

Picture Frame Using Holiday Mix Decor Elements

Morning!

Today I am sharing another gift that I made for a friend! It was very hard to take a picture of this because no matter what I did I had a shadow or the lighting was bad, so this was the best one out of all of them that I took. I purchased the frame at Walmart, it had a spot for 3 pictures but I took out the mat.

I placed some of our Designer Series Paper Merry Moments behind the glass. On the glass I used the Decor Elements Holiday Mix from the mini catalog and used the word Joy. In the corners I placed the Holly Berries. I had a lot of fun creating this gift!!

On Friday I will have a sneak peek for an upcoming blog hop that I am in this weekend! Be sure to check back!!! Were featuring product out of the Occasions Mini!!!

On the 12th Day of Christmas

Morning!

Today is the last day of the 12 days of gifts I gave to my adopted down line and some friends. On day 12 they each received a decorated gift bag. I used Garden Green, Real Red and Very Vanilla card stock. I also accented the bag with Merry Moments DSP. I used the Snow Swirled Stamp Set item # 111690 and Christmas Punch Level 2 hostess set. I used some 5/8 Old Olive grosgrain ribbon to finish the bag off. Inside each bag was something that I thought that person would enjoy! I hope all of you have enjoyed your gifts and hope that all my readers enjoyed seeing what I made!

On the 11th day of Christmas

Hello! Well I haven't been posting the last few days, we got hit by snow! I have 22 inches of snow here. My dh had knee surgery in Oct. so he can't do a hole lot right now so I was busy the last 3 days digging us out. Let me tell you heavy wet snow wears a body out! lol

I hope everyone had a great christmas! We had a quite one here, but lots of fun. This weekend my mom's side of the family descends on me for our christmas, so I have a busy week of cleaning and cooking ahead of me.

Today is also Monday's 3D Challenge but this month were doing a do over of past challenges over on Stampin' Addicts. I decided instead of posting the challenge over here again I would just give you the link to the Challenge so click HERE for pictures of the project, directions and video. The Challenge do over was the Mini Gift Pouch. This would be a cute and easy project for Valentine's Day!

Ok on to posting pictures of the gifts I sent on the 11th day I sent a little stocking filled with goodies. I purchased red felt stockings at JoAnn's. I decorated them by using our Big Shot and the Snowflake Set #2 die. I die cut out snowflakes in Whisper White card stock and put silver brads in the center. At the top I used White Organza ribbon.

On the 10th day of Christmas

Good Morning!

This morning we woke up to snow and it is coming down like crazy! I guess this big storm they were forecasting has hit us! My brother lives in Duluth, MN and he has 8" already up there, pretty nasty I guess so he will not be coming home for Christmas. That is ok we would rather have him be safe than travel on bad roads. Plus then I get more of Mom's candy then...hehehe

On the 10th day I gave a bag full of goodies! I found these little canvas bags this summer at Target and snapped them up right away. I knew they would make a good gift idea! I used the Christmas Punch Set Which is a Hostess level 2 set. I stamped the snowflakes in White craft ink onto the canvas bag. Then stamped the greeting in Glorious Green on Whisper White card stock and punched it out with the Curly Label Punch.

Inside the bag I stamped some of the Delightful Decorations, punched out coordinating colors of card stock with the Ornament Punch, added a thing of dimenstionals and some peppermints.

On the 6th day of Christmas

Morning everyone!

Yesterday I finished up my Holiday shopping yay! I was quite surprised the stores were not too bad. Usually the weekend before christmas I avoid them like the plague! lol This year I just had too much going on to get every thing done ahead of time but I am done...now its just wrapping everything. lol

On the 6th day I gave a bag full of goodies! I gave them all a mono refill and then some of the incolor ribbon! I punched out the incolor card stock with the Round Tab punch and then wrapped some of the 1/2 polka-dot grosgrain ribbon around the punch outs. Enjoy ladies!
