Getting Ready For Christmas!!!

These last couple of weeks have just been crazy for me! A friend's husband turned forty today actually, but she threw him a surprise party last Saturday, and she asked me to make him a cake.
They both love to play cards, so she asked me to make a poker themed cake. She sent me a picture to follow and this was my version of it:

It was a lot of fun to create, although I was really nervous when it came to covering it in fondant, I just felt really

This week I have been back to focusing on Christmas. I wanted to get a head start with my wrapping when I realized that we have a number of gift cards that we are giving away.
I always like doing something special for the gift cards, so I spent some time yesterday making some gift card holders.
Here is a video that I posted to YouTube, where I make a gift card holder:

I hope that you having a great day!!

Christmas Treat Bags

Last night was the last night of our Church's kids program until the new year, so I wanted to make the girls in my group a little treat bag. I wanted it to be simple and have some meaning also :)

Here is what I came up with:

The blue base was embossed with the Cuttlebug Snowflake embossing folder, the star is from the Cricut cartridge Christmas and the sentiment is from the Scrappy Moms Winter Wishes stamp set.
I wanted to mention that I hid all of the intricate cuts on the star to help speed up the cutting and the assembling of the star. I was making enough that it would have been a very long process picking out all of the little pieces of paper on all of!!!

Baby Boy Card

A friend from church had a little baby boy about a week and a half ago, so I wanted to make her a card to go with the small gift we got for her.

I am so happy with how his card turned out :) I used the Lawn Fawn, Plus One stamp set for the cute mobile and sentiment, and the Elegant Edges Cricut cartridge to cut out the scalloped oval and frame.

I coloured in the stars and moon with my Spectrum Noir markers and then added some Wink of Stella glitter to them. I stamped some little stars and hearts on the craft card stock with some Versa Mark ink.

I hope your having a great Tuesday!! Thanks for stopping by,

Christmas Tags

I have been having a lot of fun over the last couple of weeks creating lots of different Christmas cards, so today I decided to make some fun and simple tags. :)

These were so nice and easy to make. I cut the tag from the Tags, Bags, Boxes and More 2 Cricut cartridge and stamped them with the 2011 Holiday Tag stamp set form Papertrey Ink.

With this being the first Sunday of advent, I spent some time this afternoon cleaning up our advent wreath. This is a nice family piece for me because it is the one my family used when I was little, it is nice to have it and use it with my boys.

I know that you're supposed to use a purple candle for the fourth candle, but my mom always used red one so that's what I have decided to do too :)
