Finally I get to share my news!

A few weeks back I received an email from Sheila at Scrappin Great Deals asking if I would like to be a guest designer for the December kit. I didn't even have to think about it...I immediately said yes. I loved this months kit and it was so much fun to play with. I have a fair bit of it left but ran out of time to do more layouts and cards. Be sure to order your kit quickly because I know they sell out fast!

I do have to apologize for the photos. I took them after the sun went down so I had to use my flash. I plan on re-taking the photos and posting the new pictures tomorrow afternoon.

So now for my reveal! I finished 2 layouts, 2 cards, a mini pail (that is going to be a gift) and a mini album.

I did this little mini accordian album about My favourite things (about Christmas). It was super simple to make and they would make great little gifts for anyone on your list.

I absolutely love how this first layout turned out. The paper is beautiful!

I am going to retake this picture tomorrow. The number paper is from Little Yellow Bicycle and I think it is adorable.
I did 2 cards with the leftover papers. I still have quite a few more scraps left and will probably do up a few more cards to send out.

Lastly I made this little pail. It is going to be a teacher gift and I will fill it with chocolates, hot chocolate, tea and a gift card.

Well I hope you liked what I came up with and that you head on over to Scrappin Great Deals to pick up this amazing kit!

I have a little secret!

I found out something exciting a few weeks back and can't wait to spill the beans! I won't make everyone wait that long. Be sure to check back to my blog on Nov 3oth and you will find out then.

Christmas cards

Well I have started making my Christmas cards. I am really hoping I can get them done before December 1st. This is the first year I have made my own and I didn't start early enough. Next year I plan on doing them throughout the year.

Vicki had the card challenge this month and she proposed we make a Christmas card without the colours red or green. I went with blue and white.

For this card I used one of my Stampin up stamps with red cardstock. I just love how this one turned out!

It's that time again!

Yes that's team reveal time! This month we had to opportunity to select our own paper line. Boy was this a hard decision. There are so many great lines out there. After lots of thought I went with the Monstrosity line from Sassafras Lass. I knew it was perfect to use for layouts of my son. This month I did 3 layouts and 1 altered item. I had so much fun with this paper and everything just fell into place.
Don't forget to check out the other design team blogs. Valerie did the cutest card, Cheryl has some great layouts with wonderful stitching, Candace amazed me yet again (and boy was she quick to complete her layouts), Vicki picked a wonderful line and did a great job showing it off, and Cori-lyn will be posting hers a little later (I can't wait to see what she picked and came up with)
This paper was meant for a first day of school layout. I couldn't wait to scrap my son's first day of preschool and I knew this was the paper to do it.
I loved these little monsters. The felties are so cute. The paper itself is busy but once I cut the strips up it just all seemed to work. LOVE this layout! It is my favourite one.
I wanted the pictures to tell the story for this one. I couldn't resist using the bling on this either. I am loving the pearls and crystals!
I had this empty hot chocolate container that I knew I could use for something. After seeing this paper I knew it would be something my son would love and his current piggy bank was getting full so I figured he would love getting a new one. I gave it to him last night and I couldn't stop shaking the money and kept asking for more to put inside the bank.
