On the Road Again

We're packing up and getting ready to head home tomorrow.  It's bittersweet because we had such a wonderful Christmas with our daughters, but the travelling weather looks decent so we figured we'd better head out.  I have a new Getting Cricky Simply Sunday post ready for January 1, so I hope you'll come back.

Have a wonderful New Year.  Thank you for making this crafting and blogging journey so amazing.  I appreciate your visits and the time you take to comment.  
See you in 2012!!!

The Best Christmas Gift

As I've shared, we are in Lubbock, Texas spending Christmas with our oldest daughter.  Our youngest, who lives in Champaign, IL hasn't been able to have Christmas with us for the last 3 years since she works in the hotel industry and has had to work.  She told us to expect a delivery between 12 and 1 today.  When the doorbell rang, it wasn't UPS, but OUR DAUGHTER!!!  She's had her airline ticket since Thanksgiving and kept the secret all this time.  Talk about a room full of tears!- our first white Christmas (yes, it's snowing in Lubbock), and our family together for the first time in 4 Christmases.

I hope your holiday is as special as ours will be. 

Oh, I did have a few final cards to share :).

Merry Christmas!

Snowlady - Penny Black Stamp

I  wanted to share this adorable image that I just couldn't pass up when I was at a local stamp store in Elk Grove.  It's by Penny Black and she was so much fun to color with Copics.  The sentiment is from
K Andrew Designs Winter Wishes set.  This set is so versitile - I used it for almost all of my holiday sentiments.
Isn't it the perfect sentiment for this stamped image?
You can see all of K Andrew Designs set HERE.

Don't forget that the 25 Days of Christmas Celebration is going on at Cooking with Cricut.  You'll find ideas for every month along with holiday ideas, so be sure to scroll through all of the posts.  The design team creations are amazing.  And, there are freebies being offered each day to download along with prizes offered by our wonderful sponsors.

I hope you're enjoying your holiday preparations.  It feels like Christmas here in Lubbock because it's 32 degrees out.  That's pretty cold for a California girl!!

My Daughter's First Card

My daughter and I spent yesterday working on assembling our Christmas cards.  She had selected one of my previous designs for her cards, but after we finished, she decided to try a card on her own.  I think this is fantastic (proud mamma? You bet!)  She dug through the scraps and ribbons that I have on hand (remember, I've set up a temporary scraproom in her home) and here's the result:

Isn't this cute?  The tree is a combination of paper strips and ribbon. 
I'm sure you're all extremely busy this week before Christmas.  Don't forget to take a minute or two for yourself.  We are addressing cards and mailing today.  Then a little last minute gift wrapping.

I'll have a few more cards to post throughout the week so please stop by if you get a minute.  Tomorrow's card is an adorable Penny Black image with another sentiment by the wonderful Kristal of
K Andrew Designs. 

Hugs, Happy Crafting, and Happy Holidays,

Christmas Penguin

We're settled in our daughter's home in Lubbock, Texas where we'll spend Christmas and New Year's.  I even have a crafting space, which is a good thing since I needed to finish (oh, ok, I'll admit it - START ) my Christmas cards.  When you wait as long as I have to begin a project, simplicity takes over.

The paper is American Crafts, the ribbon loops from a Michael's spool, the penguin stamp is Hero Arts and the sentiment stamp is from the $1bin.  I just colored the penguin stamp with Copics and added a little bit of Stickles.

I hope you're enjoying your holiday preparations and celebrations.  We've never spent a Christmas away from home so this is a new (and, I hope, wonderful) experience.

Easy Cards, Tags, Gift Ideas

That's what you'll find over at Cooking with Cricut.
Our challenge this week was to design something quick and easy for holidays.  Mine is a super quick little gift that is perfect to have on hand for neighbors, teachers, coaches, or anyone to whom you want to say I was thinking of you this holiday.
Just add a few kisses to the inside of a whisk, wrap with transparent gift wrap, add a tag and bow and you're ready with a clever little gift.  My tag was cut from Jolly Holidays - easy peasy- with a computer generated sentiment.
Be sure to hop over to Cooking with Cricut for more ideas and to link up own design.

Rolling in Ribbon

Do you love ribbon?  Boy, I do.  Like paper, I just can't stop buying it.
This week at Fantabulous Cricut we're challenging you to design something with ribbon - woohoo!

Here's the tree from Art Philosophy.  This time I used the layer rather than the cut out and didn't add bling going for a more primitive feel.

The sentiment is from K Andrew Designs' Winter Wishes set.  You can find these wonderful stamps Here.

Be sure to visit Fantabulous Cricut to see more Rolling in Ribbon Inspiration and to link up your ribbon project.

A Fun Little Gift

I made these little gifts for the gals who take my Copic Marker class at our local scrapbook store.  It's funny how just this little gift made everyone smile and we had a great session.  I'm sure they went home and made more.

As you're reading this, we're on the road heading to Lubbock, Texas to spend the holidays with one of our daughters.  We have 3 dogs, a trailer with hubby's ATV and my 6 HEAVY boxes of crafting stuff, and a pickup full of presents, clothes, and everything else we figured we couldn't leave at home.  I hope we don't have to stop at a truck scale because I think we're way over weight.  I'm sure our gas mileage will be pathetic.
I'll be online after Monday, but I have posts scheduled for Monday and Wednesday so be sure to visit.

Let It Snow!

And that's just what it's doing in Lubbock, Texas.  My daughter was at a convention in Las Vegas and came home to her backyard with snow banked against the fence.  Oh, winter is on its way!!
Today's post features stamps from K Andrew Designs' Winter Wishes stamp set.  It's so easy to create the sentiment you want because most of the words are separate so you can mix and match.

The snowglobe is a die cut from Memory Box.  The snowy scene is one of its companion stamps.  I hand cut the banner for the KAndrew Designs stamps and added a baker's twine bow.  The snow in the globe is accented with Frosted Lace Stickles and three MS punched snowflakes finish the project.

If you're looking for a challenge, be sure to visit Getting Cricky for the new Simply Sunday challenge.  You have two weeks to link up your project.

Today is challenge #62 at Cooking with Cricut.  The design team members are sharing projects that have candles, wreaths, or pinecones.  Please visit Cooking with Cricut to get some wonderful inspiration. I created my wreath using the Martha Stewart Seasonal Cake cartridge, but added a ribbon bow over the die cut one from the cartridge. 

The stamped image in the corner was heat embossed to bring out a deeper ink color and the double-sided cardstock is held up by a gem brad from my stash.

Brrrrrrr. . . .

Today I'm sharing my latest design for Getting Cricky.  I love this Memory Box stamp and it's so easy to cut out with the matching die cut - don't have to fussy cut here.  The large snowflakes were stamped with VersaMark and then heat embossed with white sparkly embossing powder. The K Andrew Designs stamp fit perfectly on the Memory Box tag die cut. 

Here is the Winter Wishes stamp set from K Andrew Designs.  There are so many possible sentiment combinations with this set.  I've been using it for almost all of my holiday cards.  You can purchase K Andrew stamps HERE.

I'd like to invite you to visit my facebook page,  Handmade From My Heart.  Along with posting my designs, I'll share links to some of my favorite challenge blogs.  I'd love to have you suggest your favorites as well.

Holiday Cards at Fantabulous Cricut

It's time for our Holiday Card Challenge #88 at Fantabulous Cricut.  I hope you'll follow the link to see what other design team members have created to share with you.

Since we're going to Texas for Christmas and I'm trying to get so much crafting finished before we leave, I've decided that everything from now on will be simple, simple, simple!  It has to be or it won't get finished.  Have you had those craft moments when there's just no time for fancy?  Thank goodness for the Cricut, a little ribbon, and a little bling!!! 

My tree is cut from Art Philosophy (page 31).  I used the inside of the layer cut and just added a few gems.  The base of the tree was stamped with VersaMark, sprinkled with Kaleidoscope embosing powder and then heat embossed.  A piece of ribbon, the Divine Swirls folder and that's it - easy peasy.

Be sure to add your holiday card to our challenge post.  We'd love to have you share your ideas with us.

First Post for Copic Marker Scrapbooking

You may have noticed a badge on my sidebar for Copic Marker Scrapbooking.  I recently became a design team member for that site and this is my first post.  It is not a challenge blog, but rather a place for those who are interested in refining their skills with Copics and also an online store for markers and digital images.
A new digital set is being released today.  Here are two of the images that are now available.
This little scarecrow was so much fun to color.  The sentiment is from the Fall O Ween set by K.Andrew Designs.  I heat embossed it with clear powder to bring out the ink color.

Isn't she just a stylin gal?  The flowers were fussy cut from a coordinating piece of patterned paper and then popped up with foam dimensionals.

If you're a Copic fan or if you enjoy digital images, please visit the Copic Marker Scrapbooking store.  You'll also find some very valuable information about using the markers and also a refill service.  Over on the blog, you'll see some wonderful examples of projects created using Copics as well as upcoming online classes!!!!  You can visit the blog HERE.

I hope you have a wonderful day tomorrow.  I will put up a new blog post because it's Delightful Challenges day and I have a cute image to share with you.

I have a card ready to share with you.  I used one of K.Andrew Designs stamp sets and a new release digi from Copic Marker Scrapbooking.  BUT, due to a computer glitch at CMS, the digi hasn't been released and we've been asked not to post until the release on CMS.  I'm hoping to post it late Wednesday or Friday.  We'll hope for good Karma over at CMS.

Hope you're having fun preparing for the holidays.  I'm making sweet potato casserole to take to our family dinner and a yummy Festive Salad.  I love Thanksgiving!!!

Getting Cricky Simply Sunday Challenge

Today is my first day to share a project for Getting Cricky's Simply Sunday "Give Thanks" Challenge.

This card is for a wonderful woman who brought comfort to my sister in her final days. 
I used stamps from Kristal's Amazing You and Splashtastic Summer Sets. Woohoo, I received 8 more stamp sets in the mail right after I finished the card so I'll have lots more options for my card making sentiments now. You can find her amazing stamp sets HERE.

The flower and leaves are EK Success and Martha Stewart punches.  The bling on the ribbon is a strip of nailhead stickers.  I heat embossed the sentiment with clear powder to bring the ink color out.

Please stop by Getting Cricky and see what the other designers are sharing.   Then you can join our Simply Sunday Challenge by adding your project to the link.

Have a wonderful Sunday.  I hope you have many things for which to Give Thanks.  I know I do, and being able to share my papercrafting passion with you is one of them.

Designer Bingo

It's challenge day at Delightful Challenges and we're inviting you to play Bingo!  The challenge is to select three Bingo squares: across, down, or diagonal, and incorporate those into your design.
My choices included patterned paper, a die cut or punch, and flowers.  Instead of using a digital image from Digital Delights by Louby Loo, I chose to use a digital paper design from the Valentine Digital Papers Pack, also available at Digital Delights by Louby Loo. I added Prima flowers and a die cut from the Cricut American Alphabet cartridge.  I also used a corner flourish die from Sissix.

Come and join our Bingo challenge.  Chose your three Bingo squares and start creating.

Let's Talk Turkey at CWC and a winner!

Good Morning!
It's design team day at Cooking with Cricut.  The challenge for today is "Let's Talk Turkey."  I'm sure many of you are busy planning your Thanksgiving holiday.  I thought this card would make a cute invitation for Thanksgiving Day.
I used Doodlecharms for the turkey, and welded letters from Songbird and Kate's ABC's for the sentiments.  I just decided to have a little fun with the theme and this idea came to me.  I hope you'll join in the fun at Cooking with Cricut.  Just link up your project to today's post.  Winners will be announced Nov. 25.

And speaking of winners - I received 40 comments during the Fantabulous Cricut Harvest Blessings Crawl and selected number 40!  Sometimes being last IS a good thing. 
The winner is Michelle from Michelle's Crafty Creations.

Thanks to all of you who took the time to visit and leave a comment.  Don't forget there are two more blog hops coming up this week.  Just check my sidebar.

I have a little something to offer one person who will be selected randomly from those who leave a comment.  Be sure to include a way for me to contact you.  I will announce the winner on Wednesday's post.

A Busy Week Ahead

Oh, it's going to be a busy, busy week and you'll have a chance for some blog candy on three different days - woohoo!  Who doesn't like the idea of winning a little sumpin, sumpin?

So, what's happening this week?  First,  Fantabulous Cricut will be sponsoring a Harvest Blessings Cricut Crawl (our version of a blog hop) tomorrow beginning at 8:00a.m EST (that's 5 a.m. for us westcoasters!) 
Here's a sneak peek:

On Tuesday, I'll be sharing another card featuring stamps from K Andrew Designs (Getting Cricky with K Andrew.)  A neat thing about her sets is that some of the sentiments can be mixed and matched.
Here's one of the sets I used:
Wednesday and Thursday are design team days for Cooking With Cricut and Delightful Challenges, then on Friday I'll be participating in another bloghop.  It will be my first Let's Get Cricky blog hop.  The theme is Holiday Wishes and, of course, there'll be blog candy.

And on Saturday, Cooking with Cricut is sponsoring a Thanksgiving blog hop.  This hop will be unique because you won't find any cards!  The design team members have each created some sort of holiday decor to inspire you.

And, what will I be doing in the meantime?  Working on the Thanksgiving release for my newest design team!  Yep, I will be designing for Copic Marker Scrapbooking.  This is not a challenge blog, but rather a website and blog to support Copic Marker artists and those who want to learn more about the medium. You know how much I love them so designing for CMS gives me an opportunity to improve my craft.

I sure hope you'll join in a the fun this week. 

Hugs and Happy Crafting,
