I'm really looking forward to 2010. I even made resolutions this year.

Christmas Crafts

Here's a simple project the girls and I did together.

We made very pretty ornaments for our family. I just love handmaking gifts for people. I don't know if they enjoy receiving them as much as we enjoy making them.

Here's what you need for these ornaments:
Clear bulbs (we bought ours at Michaels)
Tim Holtz' alcohol inks
make up sponges
die cut machine
transfer tape for the vinyl

First we dropped some ink on a sponge

Next we dapped or smeared it all over the clear bulb. I prefer dabbing b/c it gives a cute polka dot design. Gigi was more of a smearer. Lexi is a dabber like me.

Next we let them dry.

Then we cut out different images with my Cricut using SCAL (I <3 SCAL) on the vinyl. We used the transfer tape to adhere the images to the bulbs.

All we have left to do is add some ribbon to the hoops and waa-laa we are done.

Even our Elf is getting into the spirit of craftiness!!

Blog at you soon!
Love and Hugs!!

The Timmy in me

Well that kind of sounds weird....I attempted to do a couple Timmy tags. I have to say that man is uber talented.

These are my humble attempts.

Here's a Timmy inspired Holiday Card. I used ton's of embossing powder. It was so much fun to make.

Here's a Halloween LO, I did this week. I haven't scrapped it awhile, but I feel like my mojo is coming back. :D Hopefully there will be more to come.

Here's some keychains, the girls and I made for different people for xmas presents. I think they turned out really unique.

Here's the Christmas card insert that going out to family and friends. I took the photo myself and I was lazy and bought the template of 2peas.

I hope everyone has a fabulous holiday!!

Hugs and Love!
Beth :D
