Merry Christmas

I hope everyone has a blessed holiday. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Monday, December 21, 2009


The winner of the stocking contest is Elaine, my daughter picked out the winner without knowing who did what so it was fair.

I made this nutcracker yesterday and thought he turned out so cute, I'm converting a bunch of winter holiday files and this is the first one I've cut out, this is from a monthly group I used to have so all my files are in .gsd format, it will take me a while to convert them all over, but my plan is to have them up in the store by Jan 1st so I can offer them 1/2 price, I may list them seperatly also, but the 1/2 price will apply to the collection. They will include some Christmas, some Hannakah, Valentines, New Years, and a few Presidents day.

5th stocking

Keep them coming, tomorrow will be the last day then I will take down the stocking file, I won't be posting a free file next week, it's Christmas and a busy week for everyone, especially me, I have some gifts to finish yet. Anyway I'll announce the stocking winner on Monday.

I got a little time today to use the pen tool and cut out your stocking. Not
fancy or traditional colors but fun. Thanks, Ginger "Games"

4th stocking

Stocking.... Nothing fancy but I do love the file.
Papers used:
Paper Company Al Fresco White
Basic Grey nook & pantry nap-2054
Bazzil Red
Cut out all the pieces (cuts nicely) & lightly brushed a copper clalk ink on the white. Used a Septa ink for the stocking base distressing. Wanted to do handwriting so used a black marker for this. Holly & Berries were made using Smooches Green & Red. Ribbon is a Holiday ribbon found in Michael's. Taped on 2 mini candy canes and that's it!

Made up 12 of these (have to put the candy canes on them yet) with all the kids & fur kids names on them. Just need to find a spot to put up the tree!!!!! Nice file and thank you for allowing us all to play with it! Thanks again, Deb

Another stocking

I made this stocking from your stocking file. I used your poinsettia file to make the flower. The stocking was cut from DCWV glitter card stock. I use ranger embossing powder on the poinsettia and white stocking top. I used ranger yellow stickles on the flower and ranger diamond stickles on the boot patch. Thanks for giving out all the free files you do. I enjoyed making this stocking.--Suzanne

Christmas Stockings

Here are two entries that I've recieved, you only have 2 days left to submit them to me, just a brief description of what supplies were used or any special techniques and a picture.

This stocking was made by my dear friend Elaine Wright

carstock and paper- Real Red Cardstock with Merry Moments Designer Paper Stampin Up
box-Fancy Favors box die Stampin up

The top and heel/toe are fabric. I put it on a box , you could put treats in it or use it like I did to hold silverware at your holiday table (yeah, we are both so fancy). I'm sending 3 pictures because, well, I'm an over-achiever :~) -Elaine

2nd one is from one of my readers

Both stockings are cut from DaisyD paper and misc white and dark red paper. The DaisyD piece is leftover from a slab I had. I was looking for something that looked like patchwork material and this was perfect.

Both stocking bodies were distressed on the edges with black ColorBox chalk ink then outlined with a black atyou Spica pen. I also outlined each heal. I used a garnet and lipstick red atyou Spica pens on the dark squares in the paper to give them some sparkle.

For the smaller one I cut my son’s name out of misc black paper then covered it with black stickles to make it look like it was done in glitter on the stocking top. For the larger stocking I covered the top with DecoArt Glistening Snow Writer to make it look fluffy. I cut “Merry Christmas” from Diana’s Merry Christmas Title file to put on it and used a small red rhinestone to dot the “i” in Christmas. To finish it off I added a holly charm (from colored with Emerald Green Liquid Pearls and Xmas Red Stickles.--Sandra

Where are all the other stockings???


Wednesday, December 16, 2009


I always say glitter always makes it better :). Sue has been working very hard cutting out my poinsettia files, here are some pictures of the finished files, you can purchase the files in all formats here.

Stippled the leaves with copper stampers ink and the poinsettia with strawberry stampers ink. I outlined the edges of the leaves and poinsettia with a glitter pen. I LOVE this. ---- Sue

The free file is still the Christmas Stocking, the due date is 12/20, I have one finished one, she may win by default, I'll post that one on Friday.

Ballet Files

Winner of the Blog Hop is Angela K, please e-mail me your postal address so I can mail you the stamps.

This is a layout that Sue has made for me, she used my files from the Ballet Collection, Click here to purchase file. I sell it for $4.99 at Paperthreads, and it includes a total of 15 files, including a full page mat, 3 borders, several titles and ballet images.

I'm working on a friendship album for my daughter for Christmas, I'm pretty sure she doesn't read my blog, but just in case, she did ask for it, and probably knows I'm working on it anyway. I have a few more things to make for Christmas, and it's really getting fun, trying to figure out what to make everyone, it makes it more personal. I've come up with an idea for next year for my kids, recipe books. All the recipes I've collected and make, especially their favorites, I only have 1 that is married and living on his own right now, so next year will be a good time to make this for them, maybe my two younger one's will be closer to moving out on their own.

All Wrapped up Blog Hop

I'm so excited to be participating in this months Angel Company Blog hop, this month the theme is "All Wrapped Up" I'm making all my gifts this year. Times are tough and I'm actually having a ball making all my presents. Every year I try to make a different ornament and give it to my kids, neices and nephew. This year I decided to recycle some boxes into ornament boxes, and I will put this years ornament inside it, then they can put all their own ornaments in their boxes and store them for next year.

How I made the boxes
I sprayed the tops with krylon paint, used my klick-n-kut to cut out vinyl to write their names on the top of the boxes, and used the stamps sets Holiday Boys and Holiday Girls to decorate the outside edges. (Shown is Holiday Boys)
Hope you enjoyed my project, I have some TAC stamps that I'm giving away, all you have to do is post a comment, and/or become a follower and post another comment, that you became a follower. Be sure and leave your e-mail so I know how to contact you if you win.

I'll draw for the stamps on Tuesday 12/15. Your next stop is Angela.

Diana <--You are here

TMITA Recipe Challenge

Paper Cupcakes where the main ingredient is love.
I love blog hops, and I just participated in one on Paper Cupcakes, here is the url if you want to check it out One of the challenges was to make a card using the mouse and cupcake image.

1 tag (I used a sizzix die to make it), 2 textures (swirls embossing template on the scalloped circle, scorebug all around outside of base), 3 patterned papers (one is the tag, and 2 of them is behind the circle), 4 folded ribbons (sheer pink on tag), and 5 brads (glimmer brads in pink). I was allowed 1 color of cardstock not counting the base so I used a darker pink than the base. I wasn't too sure if we could add anything else, but it was screaming for a saying so I stamped Happy Birthday with a stampin'up stamp. I also colored the mouse and cupcake with prisma colored pencils and copics. This was really a challenge for me, but I enjoyed it.

Come back tomorrow at 8pm for a Angel Company Blog Hop, the theme is "All Wrapped Up", it will be fun!! I might even give out some stamps.

Christmas Stocking

Here is the free file for this week, simple, but you can dress it up as much as you want, in fact, Im going to make a contest out of this. Let's see how creative you can get with this stocking. You may use any embellishments you have, pearls, ribbon, paint etc. You can use cutter files to embellish it, but they can only be my designs. You need to write a short list of supplies that you used or directons to any techniques you used to dress it up. Due date is 12/20. Here is a example of how I want it done. Winner gets,,,,,ummm how about $5.00 worth of files, your choice?
My stocking was cut out of Velvet Stocking-Blitzen Collection-Basic grey paper, white and red. I sponged fire brick ink distress ink on the patterened paper, black on the edges of the white and red paper. then I glued them together. I think using a sponge to apply the ink gives it a softer edge and the white looks like fur when I do this.-------Diana

Submitter wrightplace4
This layout got 2nd place with 2 votes, I think everything in this layout is stampin up

This one also used one of my files, the bird, it's actually a freebie on paperthreads, you can get it here
I also have 7 more at paperthreads in a collection if you like that one.

Christmas Presents

I'm working on Christmas presents now, so I'm not getting much done in making new files. For my daughter I'm going to make a friends album, that is what she asked for, and my son is rebuilding a car, he's got the engine out and is in the process of rebuilding that, and he's been taking pictures all along, so I'm going to make him a simple album that he can put his pictures in. I'm still thinking about what to make for my Mother and Father. My daughter makes fudge and candies and gives them out every year, her friends look forward to her treats. What are you making for Christmas?
I have 3 entries for the layout contest, you have 1 more day to get your entry in to me. I'll post all the entries on Monday and announce the winner then.

I'm back from vacation

It was absoulutely wonderful!!! It was supposed to rain and be cloudy the whole time, but I told my dear hubby it would not, sunshine was ordered, and delivered. I ate real mexican food (yummy) rode on a catamaran (party boat) went snorkeling and went to a beach party, it was loads of fun. I came back with a small sunburn, but it was worth it. I drank a margarita for each of you

ps I only have 2 entries for the sketch contest, remember winner gets $20 worth of files and 2nd place gets $10 worth.

Wednesday, November 25, 2009

How is your sketch layout coming, as of the time I left I had one entry, I'm hoping I have more by now, the contest details are below at the Titled Blog Sketch Contest. Here is my take on the sketch I made, I'll have the files ready when I get back from my vacation, hopefully right now I'm sitting on a Sunny Deck with a Margaritta in my hands, yummm.

Christmas Gifts

This year for Christmas I want to make all my gifts and have asked my family and friends to make anything they want to give to me. Not only is it the birth of our Lord, but it is also a time to give of yourself, like God gave us his Son. It's wonderful to make someone you love happy by giving them a gift that you've picked out for them, and they you know they wanted, but this year I wanted to go a little further. Not only is the economy tight, but I want to put more of myself into my gifts this year. I'll be sharing every Wendesday the gifts I've done for the week, so this week it's my husbands gift.

He is making his own wine in our basement and I'm going to fix him up a shelf area where he has all his wine making supplies. This is a light I'm going to give him to decorate that area.

New Moon starts today

As this is posting, I'm napping, I want to the first showing of "new moon" last night with my daughter, those of you that are twilight fans know what I'm talking about. I've made a page and some files, but since I've been packing and getting ready to go on vacation, I'll have to post it after we get back from our cruise. Since I'll be leaving this afternoon I'll still have posts magically appear on Monday and Wednesday, however, there is no way to get the free file to magically appear, so if I have time I'll try to post one for you either Friday or Saturday of next week. I took a picture of the page I did, files will be in the store after I get back.

Here is a silhouette page I made using one of my Children Playing Silhouttes Children Playing Silhouettes. I used paper from PaperTemptress called Black Velvet, I love the way this turned out. I'm saving this for a Christmas Present, not sure who will get it yet, but I had fun making it. Let me know what you think.


Free File

I'm going to give a way a free file every week again, like I did before, only this time you won't know what day of the week it is, and it won't last more than a day, if you miss the file I'll try to have it at paperthreads, or you can e-mail me to purchase it. Here is a card I made with the free file for next week, I went to Hobby Lobby yesterday and they had a sale on cricut stuff so I got this fluer de lis folder, we are a scouting family and always have to send thank you's or Cards for Eagle Banquets, this embossing folder and file is wonderful for that, but it's also very masculine, you can use it for birthday, sympathy, etc. for the male in your life.

New Files

I feel like it's been so long since I've made any new files, and here they are as promised. You'll see a link to the side to a free file of a maple leaf which is shown in this 8"x8" Scrapbook page. I'm in love with the Mica/Metallics available at Paper Temptress, in this layout I used Cappuchino, Copper and White gold. Even in small intricate detailed files they cut like butter.

Here is a layout I did using the outhouse pumpkins and title from the Fall in the Country Collection now available at Paperthreads, you'll also get a oak fall leaf and several more titles and mats.

Paper Temptress Birthday

As I was working on my scrapbook pages, some of them are fall layouts, I came up with some cut files for pumpkins, leaves, some sayings and an outhouse. I cut the pumpkins out of Paper from using flame mica metallic and Emerald mica metallic, it's hard to see on the card, but it does have the best sheen. This card is in honor of Papertemptress's 1 year birthday. Be sure and check back on Monday for a surprise, I'll give you a hint, it's a free file, good for that day only, if you check back on Tuesday, your too late. I'll have a sample made with PaperTemptress papers with the file.

Stamping in my Scrapbook

I've been working on making cutting files and finishing up on my journaling, here is one that didn't need a title or journaling, isn't he cute. I used the pumpkin and leaf stamps from Stampin Up

Wow, it's over already, I look forward to those 4 days all year long, and they go so fast. I don't know if it's because there is no cell phone service in the mountains, or if it's just the getting away, or if it's the ladies I usually only see once a year, but it's the best scrapbook weekend in the year. We laugh together, cry together, pick on each other, share ideas and supplies, it's just so wonderful. We always play the left, right game, and this year I ended up with a pretty 6x6 paper pack, I wasn't sure what I was going to do with it, and ended up making 24 thank you cards, I made 4 of each design. Below are the 6 I made, they are simple but it used up that paper pack I won, I haven't finished unpacking from the crop yet, but I will post more probably thursday.

I've been making some cards I can't wait to show you, but my website is still getting moved so pictures are not showing up. I did upload one halloween card I made using my cut files to paperthreads. Here is the address for the gallery.

Let me know what you think,

Fall is in the air, our nights and days are getting cooler, school has started, I'm ready for a change too. I'm going to start walking today, 1 mile, I'll probably sleep the rest of the day . My website is also changing, we are moving it to a new server, the address will stay the same, but for a few days it will be down, and the store may not be working for a while, so if there is something you need shoot me a e-mail at and we can get it worked out for you. The pictures on my blog will be gone for a few days also, don't panic they will be back soon.

I have to apologize for not posting much this month. I've had my hands full at home, my father had open heart surgery, and I'm visiting him a lot, my Mother in law may have cancer and has a lot of tests to go through before they know for sure. My mind has not been on files or scrapbooking at all. I'll try to make some cards or something this week/weekend and post them for you.

Highschool Overlay Set

Here is the Highschool overlay set, it will be $20.00 by itself, or if you purchase a coordinating set (football, band, senior is what I'm working on so far) you can purchase it for $15.00, each set (football, band, senior, etc) will be $15.00 each and will be available in gsd, wpc, knk, ai, and svg, they are made to be cut to 12x12, but I've cut to 8x8 and they cut ok, I would not recommend any smaller. The Highschool set is only available in one format of your choice, you tell me the school name, and the mascot name and I'll have it ready for you within a week. Any other suggestions?
