Day 25 Family Frame

#25 Family Plaques

Our last gift for the Christmas Countdown was a Family Plaque we created for each Family. We used the first letter of everyone's last name and the silhouette to add the family onto the glass. Each frame and letter was painted in the colors that they told me where either their favorite or to match their homes. We had a hard time getting a good picture of the P and M frames.

This was the card we created to  put with the gift. I printed our message on the Whisper White card stock then decorated it using the retired 25 Days and Greetings from Santa Stamp Set. I used some washi tape I had in my stash.

That's the end of the 25 Days of Christmas Countdown! Thank you for following along and I hope it gave you some great ideas. :)

Day 24 Christmas Eve Box

Christmas Eve Box

How about an AMAZING christmas eve box!! I saw this idea on Pinterest and really wanted to do it! I want one of these!! lol Each family received a Christmas Eve Box of goodies. The above pictures is pictures of the 4 Gifts boxes as we did each layer in the box. The boxes over all had the same items with the exception of a few items due to the kids ages, allergies, food was different for those that don't do candy and etc. Then box for the family with the new born I found a really cute santa outfit to put in it. (Crossed my fingers it would fit too when it came time to open this gift). lol We also only did stockings for the kids I found some cute one's at Hobby Lobby. The two siblings that had no kids we did a few different gifts in their boxes to suit them more.

Chrismas Eve Box Goodies

Here are some of the main items in each box.

  • Santa Plate: Created by us with the Silhouette. We had quite the time creating them. The plates we bought the stupid stuff started chipping off so we had to scramble to find 5 red plates of course Dec. 11 good luck with that around here. Snort Took 3 days to make them because the plates started chipping, and we kept running out of stuff. lol Some of the gifts we wrote messages on the back. Yep the plates we put it on upside down but didn't realize it till we were done with all 4. ROFL My advice do them at least a month ahead. lol
  • Milk Bottles: We were going to make them but couldn't find enough bottles. While shopping for last minute stuff walmart of all places had the milk for santa. ROFL

Day 21 Elf Day

#21 Elf Day

This was one of my favorite days! Not only was it a blast to put together but I love elves. lol The elf shoes were made using the silhouette. We cut them out in Lucky Limeade and Real Red card stock. On the ends some Dazzling Diamonds Glitter Paper, Bells and Ribbon. Since these where made for the coming year at the time I couldn't put food in them instead we did mini flash lights. Elf Hat, Elf Activity Mat found on-line, of course ELF movie and a trivia printable for it. Then we made the sign using the Silhouette to cut out vinyl. Which I  think is the coolest thing EVER! lol Then I made little elf hats using the Joly Hat Punch and stuck them on red clothes pins I found at the craft store. Super Adorbe's right?

Day 17 Game Day/Farkle

#17 Game Day Farkle

How about a handmade game of Farkle? This idea was born in Target in the game isle. lol I saw the game Farkle in round container and thought hmmm. To create this you will need a Silhouette and green vinyl. I did green vinyl to stick with the christmas theme. Some sort of tin. I got these years ago some place and finally used them! Ha White small note pad and green pen came from Amazon. The dice I found at the dollar store. Directions typed up and then laminated them. Here is some close ups.

Farkle

Cover

Farkle Open

Inside

17 Tag

Day 17 Christmas Tag I used the Big Shot and retired Merry Tags Framelits to die cut out the Real Red card stock and retired Warmth and Cheer Designer Series Paper. I used the retired 25 Days stamp set to ink 17 in Real Red ink onto Whisper White card stock. I punched out the number using the 3/4 Circle Punch.

IMG_0457

Card that went into the gift I used Pool Party and Whisper White card stock. The DSP was something left over in my stash. Then I added the 17 to it the same way as the tag above. We also picked up penguin theme gifts so we put the farkle game in with it. The gifts varied from family due to the kids ages. Some of the gifts came from a craft store, dollar store, target, target $1 spot. We had a new born basically so that was really hard to do stuff for him but I stumbled upon a really cute outfit with a penguin on it. Couldn't believe I just randomly found that by chance. lol

Day 18 Gingerbread House

#18 Gingerbread House

Wouldn't be christmas without the gingerbread house! If you wait till towards the end of December you can actually get these so they are good through the following December. Just a FYI since we did the gift a year ahead. I didn't think anyone would actually eat them but wanted to be safe just in case. lol You can still purchase the Cookie Cutter Stamp Set and Cookie Cutter Punch!!!

Rubber Redneck Quick Shots:

  • I decorated the gingerbread box with some misc gingerbread dsp I had in my stash. Then I used the stamp from Cookie Cutter Stamp Set; inked in Early Espresso and stamped onto Whisper White card stock. I punched it out using the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch.
  • I colored some Rhinestone Basic Jewels with a Real Red Sharpie marker and added them to the gingerbread man.
  • The gift tag I used scraps from my stash of DSP and used the number stamp from retired 25 Days Stamp Set. Inked in Old Olive and stamped onto Whisper White card stock. Then cut it out and attached with a dimensional. The top of the tag I punched a hole and tied some ribbon through it from my stash.
  • The card I printed the saying onto Whisper White card stock, then decorated with the Candy Cane Lane DSP. Then stamped 18 again in Old Olive.

Supplies Used
Stamps: Cookie Cutter Christmas, 25 Days
Ink: Old Olive, Early Espresso
Paper: Whisper White, Candy Cane Lane DSP
Acc.: Cookie Cutter Builder Punch, 1/8 Handheld Punch, Rhinestones Basic Jewels

Day 19: A Christmas Carol

#19 A Christmas Carol

When I was trying to figure out what to do for day 19 I was aimlessly wondering a store on the end cap was a book of Charles Dickens A Christmas Carol. Score!! This is one of my favorites for christmas and one I never get tired of. So the idea was born to make a craft "chain" to go with the book. lol I made 4 of these star chains. When they were done I had made a total of 160 stars.

IMG_0507

Here is the card and tag we created.

Rubber Redneck Quick Shots:

  • Die cut out a lot of stars using the Big Shot and Star Framelits. I used some misc dsp from my stock pile, you'll want several different patterns of dsp. Each star took a total of 4 Stars for the front and back in 2 different sizes.
  • Die cut out lots of circles using the Big Shot and Layering Circles Framelits. I die cut them out of Silver Glimmer Paper to go with the Silver Bells. You need 2 circles per star.
  • Assemble each side of the star but don't glue the two halves together. (Learn from my mistake lol) I did so then I had to try to thread the hemp twine through and that really slowed me down.
  • You will need a heavy hemp for this project. Lay your stars out on a table (however many you want). Then lay your bells  out between the stars this will give you an idea how long to cut your hemp.
  • Then thread your bells onto the hemp. Place the hemp out across the stars and slide the bells into place.
  • Go through and attach dimensionals to the stars.
  • Attach the other half of the star and your star chain is complete.
  • Decorate the card with dsp and some diecut stars. I stamped the number from retired 25 Days Stamp Set in Real Red Ink.
  • The gift tag was created out of leftover scraps of dsp and Whisper White card stock. I stamped the number from retired 25 Days Stamp Set in Real Red Ink.

Supplies Used:
Stamp: 25 Days
Ink: Real Red
Paper: Whisper White, Silver Glimmer
Acc.: Big Shot, Stars Framelits, Layering Circle Framelits, 1/8 Handheld Punch, Heavy Hemp, Silver Bells

Day 20 Santa Pinball

#20 Santa Pinball

Wouldn't be Christmas without Santa Pinball! lol Hubby found these and wanted to put them in the gift. He found them at Walmart.
The card we printed our saying on Whisper White card stock. Stamped the 20 from retired 25 Days Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. I stamped the "greetings from the northpole" from retired Greetings from Santa Stamp Set (I thought that was fitting for a santa gift lol) in Real Red. Then stamped the stars in Old Olive. The gift tag was created using the Banner Triple Punch on a piece of Silver Glimmer Paper. Then I added some misc scraps of dsp from the left overs. I stamped the 20 onto Whisper White card stock and punched it out with the 1 1/4" Circle Punch. Add a Rhinestone I colored and some misc ribbons  I had.

Supplies Used
Stamp: 25 Days, Greetings from Santa
Ink: Real Red, Old Olive, Tuxedo Black Memento Ink
Paper: Whisper White, Silver Glimmer Paper
Acc. Banner Triple Punch, 1/8 Handheld Punch, 1 1/4 Circle Punch, Rhinestones

Day #11 Gingerbread Man Day

Love that cute little gingerbread guy in the Cookie Cutter Christmas Stamp Set!

Rubberredneckcookiecutterchristmas

These were all the goodies I created for the day 11 Gift. Of course I made every families a little different some how! lol I also by complete chance found gingerbread shaped cookie cutter. Some of the items can still be purchased and I have them listed below. This gift uses the Candy Cane Lane Suite from the 2016 Holiday Catalog that has since retired.

IMG_9693

I purchased those large wooden clothespins and modgepodged the Candy Cane Lane DSP from the Holiday 2016 Catalog onto it.  I added the gingerbread man from Cookie Cutter Christmas Stamp Set onto the front. Then found a recipe on line for gingerbread cookies. We have people in our family that are also gluten free so I had to also find a recipe that was gluten free. My helper however typed up the directions wrong and I didn't catch it. Whoops lol I added the cookie recipe we found.

Download Gingerbread cookies recipe

IMG_9659

Little packet of coloring puzzles. I happen to find the puzzles at Hobby Lobby during my wanderings. lol I decorated a Kraft Tag a Bag Gift Bags. I decorated the bag with the Cookie Cutter Christmas and Candy Cane Christmas Stamp Sets.

IMG_9681

I wanted to put gingerbread cookies (my favorite) in the gift but of course I couldn't find any that would keep for a year. lol So I found this idea on pinterest. Thought it was super cute! I just copied the saying I found on line. Printed it off onto Whisper White card stock and decorated.

Day 12 Christmas Jars

Man I don't know about you all but I love getting gifts like this! Jars are so fun to fill with goodies!

Rubber Redneck Tin Tags

I filled a quart jar full of goodies! Everyone's jars were filled with different items. We did Holiday socks, candy, chap stick, $1 mittens, christmas stickers, change, travel games, and etc. I also filled them with fun christmas filler I found at Hobby Lobby. I had a blast creating these! If you want to create something like this at target and walmart they have a party isle and will have christmas theme things for little gifts for kids or hit the $1 Spot at Target. lol The front of the jar is the countdown card. I used the 25 Days retired stamp set.

On the left is the tag I created to go outside of the gift. I punched out a piece of Cucumber Crush card stock with the Banner Triple Punch. I used the 25 Days, Tin of Tags, and Project Life Date It Retired Stamp Sets.

Day 13 Jingle Bell Toss

Rubber Redneck Jingle Bell Toss

While researching ideas I stumbled upon this fun idea of using bells and miniature cups to create a game! I thought it was a must do because our family actually has a game with these cups only you use quarters and cards so when I saw this it was happening! lol However I didn't realize how hard it would be to find little miniature red cups. We went to so many stores trying to hunt them down. It was pretty funny. The bottom pictures are the Day 13 card and gift tag. They used the retired stamp sets 25 Days and Stitched with Cheer.

Tree Game

The base is created out of a canvas board and 2 miniature red cups on one end to prop it up. We hot glued them on.
On the top side you lay out the cups to look like an upside down tree. Hot glue those too.
Find a decorative christmas bag and fill with christmas bells. We had enough cups left over that hubby and I made one for us to. We had a blast playing it!

Then I typed up the directions on how to play.

Jingle Bell Toss
2 Players

Directions:

  1. Each player gets 6 bells of a single color.
  2. Stand a few feet away from the board. Toss 1 bell at a time and try to get it into the cups.
  3. Bells that land in the top row of the cups are worth 2 points each.
  4. Bells that land in the middle row and bottom row are worth 1 point each.
  5. After you have thrown all six bells in your color then it is your opponent’s turn to toss their bells. Any bell that lands in a cup that already has an opponent’s bell in it cancels out the points for both bells. Once both players have thrown all of their bells the round is complete and points can be totaled.
  6. Continue to keep playing rounds until someone’s score totals 21 at the end of a round then that person wins.

Supplies Used
Stamps: Cookie Cutter Christmas, Number of Years, 25 Days, Candy Cane Christmas, Tin of Tags, Project Life Date It, Stitched with Cheer

Day 9

Build a snowman day....this has been one of my favorite things to do since I was a kid! So I came up with some fun gift ideas and a fun craft project to do indoors this year.

IMG_9577

How about a decorated electric tea light. Cute right? I found this general idea on pinterest. So fun and easy to do too. I made the hat using the Big Shot, Everyday Jar's Framelits and Layering Squares Framelits. Stamped the images from the retired Stitched With Cheer Stamp Set and used the Holly Berry Builder Punch.
Use a sharpie to draw the eyes on the tea light.

IMG_9586

Of course it needed a little box to hold it. I filled the box with tinsel another awesome use for that stuff!

IMG_9594

The lid I created for the box. I just die cut out the center with the retired Perfect Pines Framelits. Then added a piece of Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate over the opening so the snowman could peek through :)

IMG_9595

The adults got snowman poop boxes. lol I made this using the Big Shot, Layering Circles Framelits and the Jolly Hat Builder Punch. It fits the tic tac containers. (This was one of my husbands favorites to give his siblings. lol)

IMG_9574

I wanted some sort of crafty thing that the families could do so we created build a snowman kit using glue, cotton balls, card stock, and pipe cleaners. I am going to be sharing this hole project in Jan sometime along with the printable we created so be sure to come back for that one.

Every family recieved some sort of fun gifts we purchased that had a snowman theme. I found these really cute snowman picks for everyone. Everyone's gift was different to match kid's ages.

Family Gifts: Christmas Countdown Day 3 + Day 4

Hey Peeps,

Back with my last blog post for the day ;) Another batch of Family Gifts for their Christmas countdown. I am pinning everything to my Family 25 Days Christmas Countdown Board on pinterest too.

Day 3

It's important to write those letters to Santa so how about these AWESOME Santa Letter Board!! I made a couple of different ones so they weren't all the same. lol

Santa's Letter Board 3

The directions below are for this one but all the paper is the same measurement for all of them. Some of the product you can still purchase but some has retired. We picked up the frames at a craft store and then painted the frames. They took 2 coats.

To Create this you will need the following supplies:

  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Big Frame Board (I got this at a craft store)
  • Delta Red Paint
  • Foam Brush
  • Stampin' Up! Supplies

Rubber Redneck Quick Shots:

  • Cut 1 Sheet of Christmas Specialty Designer Series Paper 11 3/4" x 11 3/4" for the background. I modgepodged this to the board.

Create a pocket:

  • Cut 1 piece of Basic Black card stock 1" x 11 3/4" score at 1/2", fold on the scored line and attach the bottom of the board inside.
  • Cut 2 pieces of Basic Black card stock 1" x 4" and score at 1/2" on each side. Glue each piece to the the sides of the board towards the bottom inside.
  • Cut 1 piece of the Christmas Specialty Designer Series Paper in a different patter 5" x 11 3/4". Glue the dsp to the basic black card stock that is facing up forming a pocket.

Decorate:

  • Cut a piece of Gold Glimmer Paper 1" x 11 3/4". Slide so it goes into the pocket and glue to the board. This helps break up the patterns of the paper.
  • Die cut out the Gold Foil Sheet using the Big Shot and Santa's Sleigh Thinlits.
  • Stamp the deer in Tuxed Black Memento Ink onto Kraft card stock. Zip through the Big Shot with the Santa's Sleigh Thinlits. Color the reindeer hooves in using the Basic Black Marker.
  • Stamp the trees in Emerald Envy onto Emerald Envy card stock. Zip through the Big Shot with the Santa's Sleigh Thinlits. Add Dazzling Diamonds to the tree.
  • Assemble your scene and attach with Stampin' Dimensionals. I used the Baker's Twine Trio Pack to make reins.
  • Hot glue the Kraft Rope around the edges on the inside and hot glue a reindeer to the top right corner.

Santa's Letter Board 1

Santa's Letter Board 2

Awesome right? These were a blast to make but they do take about 2 days because of the painting. The Santa Letter slides right into the pocket. The Santa Letter I found on Pinterest and posted the PDF here for you all if you would like to print your own.

The cards for my side of the family we put on them Redneck Made Elves Inc. My family is always making fun of me and calling me a redneck and hubby said he felt like a elf so we decided to be silly one night while making gifts. This is what happens when you go on little sleep and inhale fumes. lol

I of course couldn't just keep them the same. lol

Day 2 Gift:

Some of you where asking me how did I get this all done with what we've been going through. I did not do these this year this was part of the gift I gave last Christmas to be open this Christmas, it was part of our Year of Gifts for our families. I shared some but not all so I didn't give the gift away. Thus why it is using the retired Holiday Catalog Product from last year ;) Day 2 was Christmas Fun Foam Kits that I forgot to take pictures of. lol I found these while I was cruising an isle looking for ideas for the little ones.

IMG_4156

However I do have a picture from my cousin of her little guy with his completed project. Once again someone saved my bacon! lol

Gift Packaging

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

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.

IMG_9419

This was the day 2 tag label I created.

  • Zip a piece of This Christmas Specialty Designer Series Paper through the Big Shot with the Layering Circles Framelits. These are on sale!!!
  • Cut a piece of Whisper White card stock and zip through the Big Shot with the Banner Framelits. Stamp your 2 onto the top in Garden Green Ink. I used the retired 25 Days Stamp Set and retired Metallics Glitter Tape.
  • Ink the stamp from Stitched with Cheer Stamp Set in Real Red and stamp onto a piece of Whisper White card stock. Zip it through the Big Shot with the Bunch of Banner Framelits die cutting it. Attach all of your pieces together with Stampin' Dimensionals.
  • Punch a hole at the top with the 1/8 Handheld Punch and tie some Candy Cane Baker's Twine through it. Add a Rhinestone Basic Jewel.
  • Attach to your package and use wrapping ribbon to finish decorating.
