Christmas Quilt

If you are following the hop in order you just arrived from Cindy's BLOG where she showed you all something fabulous! I was excited to feature this bundle when I saw it in the catalog it was one of my must haves as my grandma loved to quilt and taught me how to quilt too. Lots of fond memories of our time together.

Christmas Quilt Card

In this suite their is an embossing folder too called Quilt Top Textured, it is AWESOME! I zipped the Lemon Lime Twist card stock through the Big Shot with it. Add some Quilted Christmas 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper, stamped my images, placed a Stitched Felt Embellishment with some Silver Metallic Thread and some Rhinestone Basic Jewels and boom masterpiece created ;) I wish quilting was that fast! lol

Close up for you. Lots of layers this is one of those cards I would hand deliver.

I kept the inside simple. Stamped the greeting in the set and added the little stitched image (I adore that stamp so much). Across the bottom some Lemon Lime card stock and Quilted Christmas 6 x 6 Paper.

I hope you like this project. Now you'll want to hop on over to Mike's BLOG where I know he will have some awesome to show you!

Family Gifts: Christmas Countdown Day 1

Back with the second half of this mornings post. I had to split it up into 2 posts today since it's a lot to share!

Day 1 Gift:

Block Calendars & Kid's Advent Countdown Calendar. The Block Calendars were handmade by us. I got this idea off of pinterest and I think the original maker is Melissa Stout to see her version visit her blog. Last year I shared some of the Stampin' Up! ones I created. I have so much craft stuff that my goal has been to try to use up all my none SU stuff and scraps! This gift worked perfect for that goal!

Calendar Block 1

This was made using the product from the 2016 Holiday Catalog and you can find the details on this blog post HERE. You can still purchase the Holly Berry Builder Punch, Santa's Sleigh, Santa's Sleigh Thinlits, and Large Numbers Framelits.

Calendar Block 2

This used some of my misc DSP Christmas Paper I had left over. I really liked the reindeer cut out in the Silver Glimmer Paper.

IMG_9398

This one was for the kido's. I stumbled across this Santa on-line on pinterest and as soon as I saw it I wanted to do this.

If you would like to make your own just click on the picture below and save to your computer and print it off.

Santa-faceAdventCalendar

I of course really wanted my projects to include my biggest passion which is of course my stamping :) so I created this adorable bags to slip the Santa's into.

Gift Bag 1

Details on how to make these bags by recycling paper bags can be found HERE.

Family Gifts: Christmas Countdown Begins

Morning my stamping peeps,

Back today with those family gifts we created last year for our family to open all year!! For December we did a 25 Days of Christmas countdown for 4 families....which resulted in 100 countdown presents for December!!! This is what 25 Days of Christmas countdown looks like for 1 family. Some of you have seen some of this already; I wanted to share all this in order for the new comers ;) I had intended to share each day on the day this year but not everyone could open gifts on the days right away due to work schedules and life. If you want to see everything at once I will be posting to a special board I created on pinterest just for the Family 25 Days Christmas Countdown.

IMG_0616

THUD right? I love doing the countdowns in December and normally I just do 12 days and yes in the future I will stick to that! lol For the most part the basic idea was the same however each family was a little different as some have kids, some do not, some have allergies and etc. One thing to note the projects that I will be sharing used last years products from the Stampin' Up! 2016 Holiday Catalog and Stampin' Up! 2016 Main Catalog so some of the product has retired since I created these gifts. You can easily change out the ideas and use the new Holiday products or you'll get lots of ideas using last years product that your hoarding ;)

25 Day Letter

This was the letter we included in the 25 Day's Christmas Countdown. I kept it very simple I printed out what we wanted to say. At the top I created the title and changed it to print in color so it would be more festive. At the top I added a piece of This Christmas Specialty Designer Series Paper (retired) and then I stamped the trees from Stitched With Cheer Photopolymer Stamp Set (retired) in Old Olive ink. Doesn't need to be fancy and feel free to copy the wording too!

Somethings I learned from this project that will be helpful for you ;)

1. Shop an year in advance otherwise to do all of this in December is very STRESSFUL!! lol

2. Be ORGANIZED especially if doing this large of scale!! We were and we weren't towards the middle of this project pretty much chaos happened and their were piles of stuff everywhere with no rhyme or reason. Thank goodness I wasn't hosting Christmas.

3. Make a basic list of what you want to do for the xx amount of days. You can get lots of ideas from pinterest too! Just search christmas countdown. I only had a few days figured out what I wanted to do but over all we didn't do that; we just went to the stores and wandered around trying to figure out what we wanted to do and in December no less when it's a zoo! That part I didn't enjoy trying to figure out what to do as I am a organized person and always have a plan. We also tried to make some gifts to help save on the overall cost.

4. Try to make your projects ahead of December if doing this large of scale. We actually didn't get everything done in time and had 1 am nights (which is very bad for me to do with my RA, I paid the price Christmas Day was spent sick and sleeping, I didn't get do our family Christmas so Merry Christmas to me! lol). We also ran into some major snags where we had to create something entirely different when that's not so great to do in December when the clock is ticking. lol

5. Think about Christmas packaging. For example I knew I would be making all my tags but if your doing a countdown you want numbers so if you don't have numbers that is something to think about. We got lucky when we stopped at Hobby Lobby all Christmas packaging was 50% off but we still spent $200 on just that. My advice if you want to do this go after Christmas and get what you can on clearance! lol

6. Things you will need a LOT of; scotch tape, boxes and several pairs of scissors (we kept misplacing our 1 pair). I used a lot of those white shirt boxes. We kept buying this stuff thinking we had enough but nope hubby had to literally go to walmart every day here. It became a running joke for us. lol

7. Mass production lines work way better too! At first I was doing one family at a time so presents wouldn't get mixed up and if anyone stopped by I didn't want them to see the gifts!! lol We finally got smart and purchased some 6' folding tables set them up in a room where we could shut the door and laid stuff out, created till a table was full then stopped and wrapped and put into labeled totes.

8. If you don't get done in time; oh well! lol The gift recipients will still be excited by the idea!

9. We became expert gift wrappers so if we ever need a job to fall back on. hahaha

Hopefully our families have loved this christmas magic gift we created for them! We still had a lot of fun even if it ended up being stressful. Having a good sense of humor helps too so if you don't then DO NOT do this project! lol Hubby and I ended up creating some pretty good memories and it's something for us to look back on and laugh about.

Family Gifts; Family Jar

Happy Saturday Peeps!

Yes we are alive and well I've just been incredible busy and have not had time to create or post to my blog. I am in the process of several major events here that I am making decorations for, lots of regular work, work and work, tax time, plus lots of different things going on. There is not enough hours in the day! We did have my mom's retirement party it was a success and I will be sharing photos in a couple of weeks here. I am sorry I worried some of you but we are okay and I will not be posting regular till I get stuff done and caught up.

Customer Updates:

I did mail out the catalogs weeks ago so if you didn't receive one please let me know and I will check my list. Everyone who placed orders in Dec and Jan all of your thank you goodies were mailed out too!

Family Jar

This is another gift we created for our family members and is part of the "Year Gift" we made! If you would like to see more info about this awesome project we created and what I've shared so far click on the little tag on the left side of my blog labeled Year of Gifts or visit HERE. It is a family jar. I saw this idea last year on pinterest and thought how cool I gotta make this! The idea is all year long record the awesome things that happened and then on new year's eve read through everything. How cool right? Another demo/friend did this with her family and it's become a family tradition for them. This uses the Layering Love Stamp Set (W) item #141962 (C) item #141965 which I thought was fitting for this idea!

IMG_9955

Theses were such a blast to make! We made a total of 4 of them. I should have made one for us but didn't even think about it. lol Super easy to create too!

Supplies Needed to create Family Jar
Stamp: Layering Love
Ink: Early Espresso
Paper: Early Espresso, Very Vanilla, Copy Paper
Acc.: 1 3/8 Circle Punch, Very Vanilla 1/2 Lace Trim, Gold Binder Clips, Pearls, Jar, Paint, Silhouette

Rubber Redneck Quick Shots:

  • Paint the jar lid in your color choice and let dry for several days.
  • Using the Silhouette cut out the vinyl in black and attach to the front of the jar. Sorry I forgot to measure the jar. lol I got them at Target in the $1 spot last spring.
  • Create a pouch to hold slips of copy paper out of the Early Espresso card stock. They don't need to be that big but I really wanted the saying on the pocket. Punch one end of the Early Espresso card stock using the 1 3/8 Circle Punch. This will make it easier to grab the slips of paper.
  • Ink the stamp from Layering Love Stamp Set in Early Espresso and stamp onto the Very Vanilla card stock. Glue to the front of the pocket and added some Pearl Basic Jewels to finish it.
  • At the top I clipped a Gold Binder Clip to the pocket then thread some Very Vanilla 1/2 Lace Trim through the binder clip and tied it around the top of the jar.
  • Then I typed up a note to add with the jar to let each family know how the jar works.

IMG_9960

Here is all four of them. Again I either did people's favorite colors or the color that would best in there home since I didn't know who would actually leave them sitting out. Pretty awesome I think!

Happy New Year + Big Surprise

Happy New Year Peeps!

I know I've been missing all week again and I can FINALLY share why this year I've missed so much time on here besides being super sick and busy with family stuff. It has been super hard to keep this project top secret and not show anything!! I should seriously get a medal for that :) This past two day's we did our family Christmas with my side!! I REALLY couldn't wait for Christmas to get here this year!!!! I was probably more excited than any kid on the planet!!!! haha

So are you ready??? This year I decided to do something pretty FUN and completely CRAZY for our siblings and my one cousin who is like a sister to me and for there families. I made an entire year of gifts celebrating the major holiday's and weird holidays as there Christmas gifts for this year and next year. Yes you did read that right. lol A whole year of gifts!! Some gifts were made and some where purchased. What dose an entire year of gifts look like for one family?

IMG_3028

Awesome right? I thought it was awesome!! But of course I had to take it one more step farther and be truly INSANE.... for the month of December I did a countdown to Christmas but instead of just a 12 day countdown I did a 25 day countdown....THUD.

IMG_0616

This is what 25 day's of Christmas countdown looks like. Hehehe

We did this for 4 families. Yes 4 families for a total of 363 presents for this coming year!!! 100 of those presents were just the Christmas Countdown for this coming December.

What do you put all these presents in to give? Why 2- 50 gallon totes for each family and some still didn't fit. haha

IMG_0553

Of course how do you decorate a 50 gallon tote? Ribbon and lots of ribbon!

How in the world did I get this idea?

Last year in December while I was wrapping the date night kits I made for the family I had the news on and they were talking about some weird holiday like it was doughnut day or something and I thought huh and what?? So off to google I went and low and behold I found a web-sight called Holiday Insights with the major holiday and weird holidays and the idea was born. I thought it would be so fun to teach the kids about it since I obviously knew nothing about it. lol I told my husband what I wanted to do and he thought it would be so cool. So it started out for the kids but then I was having so much fun with it and my cousin is a teacher I thought you know she probably would really like this and so would our siblings. I really started thinking about how hard everyone works and what a great gift this would be as a family gift instead. I love creating gifts for people because for me they are truly from the heart and we love our family so much. I just really wanted to do something special for them this year to show them how much we love them! Family is one of the most important things to me and with everyday life sometimes we forget to have fun, take our families for granted and truly enjoy those little moments. Of course when I told hubby this he thought I was off my rocker yet again :) I knew I would have to really work on it all year to have it done in time.......HA yeah right even working on it all year was not enough time. Every spare minuet I had was working on this project.

This also was part why I didn't share my project life album this past year because so much time was spent on this project I didn't want to give things away :) It defiantly fit our thing of trying something new last year. lol I am a supper organized control freak and I'll be honest no amount of being prepared to do this gift in this magnitude, you still will not be prepared enough. lol

So many things happened with this gift and I will share as they days gifts are opened too because it was really funny all the stuff that happened. The biggest thing I didn't fully think about was what size of gift this would be when we were done and how we would wrap stuff. lol We spent all year saving boxes then dh's cat got sick and decided to use the room I was storing the boxes in as a litter box. Ughh a hole trailer load of boxes in September went to the dump....that really left us scrambling. We didn't really think out what the cost of packaging (totes are soo expensive) it would have been ok if I had planned for that but that was a very big unplanned expense in December to have.

Some other things I didn't think about where the food restrictions some have, having 2 little ones that a lot of things they can't have or do yet (that was a big challenge to try to find things that would work for them). lol Some people told me to just do whatever for it but I didn't want it to be a gift of things people didn't like or would get upset over. I truly care if it's something someone will like and to me that is knowing a person better and making these gifts more personal.

Not all the gifts were the same for every family, each of the families varied in size, children age's, and some have no children. My brother got engaged in October so that was a VERY unplanned thing and we had to scramble to figure out stuff to included Hailey. lol Because in October where do you find things for St. Patty's Day for example it was a riot. I was happy to do it though because it is awesome she is joining our family!!

To start of the gift we created message boards for each family with pictures and a calendar of when to open there gifts.

IMG_0539

This is my brother and soon to be wife's message board. We put the picture of when he proposed, engagement picture and a picture of all 4 of us.

IMG_0537

This one is of my cousin and here family.

IMG_0421

This one is of my hubby's baby brother and wife.

IMG_0424

This one is of my hubby's other brother and family.

They turned out so cool!! We used the Silhouette to create the family thing across the top.

All the reactions we got were so funny and some where not at all what we expected. I always prank someone at Christmas time on my side and my cousin panicked. Her response was OMG what did we do this year, she was so worried but when we set the tote down in front of my brother she felt relief. ROFL and by the way I don't think I will ever have to prank you two again mission accomplished. haha They were all pretty shocked and I don't think I will EVER be able to top this gift......but I always find a way I just set the bar VERY high.

So now can you see why I was sooo excited for Christmas this year!! We wrapped gifts right up before we had to leave for our family gathering. It was quite the adventure and we made some awesome memories for us in 2016.

Happy New Year!!

25 Days of Christmas Countdown: Custom Wrapping Paper + Giveaway

Hello December Blog Badge

Hello December 2016 Project Life On-line Class

Starts On: January 3, 2017

The class is RECORDED so you do NOT need to be able to tune in live to participate!!!

Morning all! First and update on my December Daily Class. I am still not over my cough and have not been unable to do my video's for the December Daily Class so after much debate I cancelled the class and contacted everyone who had registered. So many said you didn't mind waiting till January because you wouldn't get your album done before then and still would like the class; so the class is back on! Sorry for the mass confusion, and sorry for getting sick (I know I can't control it but it is frustrating)!! I've made changes to the class you still will get 6 weeks worth of content but instead the class will be 3 weeks long so it's not going on into February. So be sure to keep taking your pictures everyday!

Visit the Hello December 2016 Project Life On-line Class Page HERE for details and to register.

Custom Wrapping Paper

One thing I really like to do is create customer wrapping paper. You can do it if you plan ahead that is the key :) I purchased a roll of Kraft Wrapping Paper from Hobby Lobby. I usually stock up on this around Christmas time because that is when they have there wrapping paper at 50% off. To create my wrapping paper I used the Oh, What Fun Photopolymer Stamp Set item #140386 from the main catalog.

OhWhatFun

This set is not only great for creating cards, creating tags it is perfect for creating custom wrapping paper too!!

Tip~ One thing to note is be sure you are stamping on a hard surface. I was working on one of our tables that I thought would hard enough but as you can tell one of my Happy Christmas didn't ink good enough because the table gave.

Rubber Redneck Quick Shots:

  • Roll out the amount of wrapping paper you need. Ink the stamp from Oh, What Fun Stamp Set in Real Red ink and stamp onto the wrapping paper. Repeat till  you have the entire piece stamped on. You can add more images if you would like I just liked the Merry Christmas on it. That's all it takes!

Tip~ Let your paper dry before wrapping your gift it only takes a few minuets to wait.
