5 Days of Christmas ~ Day 5!

Hello & welcome to My Creative Time's "5" Days of Christmas"! This week we will be sharing w/you LOTS of last minute Christmas ideas, such as cards, layouts, home decor, 3-D items & what ever else come to mind that will help YOU get your juices flowing for the holiday!

You will see the different prizes each day on Emma's blog HERE! I hope we ALL inspire you this week! 
 
For my last project I wanted to make a recipe card for friends.  Every year I make English Toffee for gifts.  This year I'm thinking of adding a recipe card with it. :)
 
 
I didn't have time to write out the recipe before I took the picture, I really wanted to take my time since I don't have the best handwriting :)  However I feel it really important to hand write them, it's like your giving more of yourself that way. 

 
I plan on adding a picture of the candy on the red mat, that way who gets this will know what they are making.
 
 
Wouldn't this be a great gift with a box of family favorite recipes!  Handwritten and a picture of past holidays!

I stamped the star then "fancy" cut it and then added some chunky glitter.  I couldn't get a great picture with the natural light I had available...it looks waaaay better in person!
 
I also added some fine glitter to the little "sparkle" stamp

Today I wanted to share with you a kind of "Advent Calendar" however I didn't finish it.  Last week was so crazy with family for Thanksgiving and my daughters shower that I just couldn't get it together.  I was thinking it would be fun to have candy canes on the tree that could be plucked off each day until Christmas!
 
Even though it's December 3rd, I think this could still be doable for this year!

  I hope you've enjoyed all the wonderful projects my design team sisters created!  I'm so in love with Miss Emma's newest stamps and dies.  I love that she always finds a way to have her new release coordinate with older ones, while still keeping it fresh!
 
Today I have a card that I made for my daughter's shower.  My project today may seem a bit simple, however there is a method to my madness!  lol!  At some point I'm planning on making her a "Project Life" style album.  So I thought that I could cut her card down to fit in a pocket.  That why everything is off to the side and not a lot of foo foo! :)
 
Don't you just love the edge die!!!  You get 6 different edges in one package...now that's a deal!

Scrapping The Little Things ~ Go Stanford!

 
Good Monday to you, I hope you had a wonderful weekend!  Since it's Scrapping The Little Things over at My Creative Time,  I'm sharing with you a "Project Life" Style layout with you. 
 
If you haven't tried this style of scrapbooking, you should!  It's awesome because you can do quick and traditional styles together.  Just mix and match the different pockets and you have a beautiful album!
 
yes, I still need to journal...I always have trouble with that part :)

 
I stamped the football player on white paper then cut him out.  The football was done the same way and then popped up on the stitched circle die. 

 
I used the banner from Vintage Stitched Label dies, stamped "defense and offense" on both ends then cut it in the middle.

 
This tag is perfect for journaling!  This layout took about 10 minutes to complete.  You really could get a whole album finished in a day with the pocket method and just a few stamps and dies!
 
recipe:
 
extras:
Teresa Collins pattern paper
Papertrey Ink card stock
Stampin Up Ink
 
Coming up later this week is a new release from My Creative Time!  Be sure to be on the look out for that!
 
 
 
Oh and one more thing...if you haven't heard, My Creative Time is having a Design Team Call!
