Fun with the Birds Of A Feather January kit

Hello all! I want to share a few layouts I made using the adorable January kit from
Birds Of A Feather.

Oh by the way, Birds Of A Feather is having a DT call right now and there are only a few more days to get your apps in. Good luck, its a GREAT team to be on!

I "Wisk" you a Merry Christmas

Hello and Merry Christmas! We are only 2 days away from the big day. Do you need a quick and easy gift idea for a neighbor or loved one?
Many of you know that I work in a bakery so I thought it'd be appropriate to give a few of my co-workers a gift that is baking-related.
I made these cute little paper aprons from Best Creation's cute kitchen collection called Mom's Kitchen. I bought a wisk from the dollar store to attach to each.

Have a great weekend!

Blonde Beauties with Creative Charms

Inspiration can come from the strangest of places. While washing my hands one day I noticed the design on this bottle of hand soap.

Which now became this...

Funny how inspiration can come from anywhere if you just pay attention.

Today I used supplies from Creative Charms. This is a sneak peak of what you'll find in this month's Deal of the Month.

You'll fins super cute embellies in this month's assortment. I love all of the sparkly, wintery blues.

Have a great day!

Here comes Santa comes Santa Claus

...right down Candy Cane Lane! Ho! Ho! Ho!
This month's kit from Birds Of A Feather includes a 6x6 Tim Holtz Grungebook with 12 pages. That's alot of pages, hugh?

I decided to theme my album around the kids' visits with Santa. The pictures on the left are from 2010 and the pics on the right are this year's Santa photos. It is so fun to see how much the kids have grown in just one year. (Not to mention how Santa has changed. LOL!)

What's more appropriate than making the Santa cover look like Santa.
The hardware and felt are from my stash but the rest is from the kit.

There are 5 kits left in stock so go get yours!! You'll love it!

Traditions with Birds Of A Feather

Today I have two layouts to share with you using the beautiful December kit from Birds Of A Feather.
My theme for both of them are based on traditions.
Every Christmas time we go to Temple Square in Salt Lake to see the beautiful Christmas lights. The lights are beyond gorgeous and the atmosphere is always joyful and exciting.

The fun glitter cuts from Fancy Pants are great! You can tuck them in anywhere and they look good. ;)
My next tradition is all about the gingerbread houses. We either buy a kit or make our own every year. The kids love making them!

What are some of your holiday traditions??

Sketch 139

We decorated our Christmas tree with the kids much fun! The following sketch reminds me of a giant ornament so I chose this as our sketch this week. :)

If you decide to try the sketch, leave me a comment with a link to your layout and I'll add it to the blog for an example.

Have a great week!

December is upon us, can you believe it? Where has the year gone?
I just got done playing with the FABULOUS November Deal of The Month from Creative Charms. If you love bling and ribbon (who doesn't?), this packet of goodies really has all you need for your holiday projects and what a deal!!
I made this layout using an old T-shirt stretched inside of an embroidery hoop.

I added a few sparkling snowflakes from the Winter Medley. The red, green and diamond brads worked well to look like sparking ornaments and string of lights.

The pretty ribbon included in the Deal of The Month worked perfect for my background and it gave my layout plenty of color.

I also made this simple Holiday card by cutting out a doily using my die cut machine. The "berries" and bow really turned this doily into a pretty wreath.

Other papers and supplies used on these projects are from the fun Birds Of A Feather December kit.

Happy crafting!
