~* Graphic 45 Christmas Past Ornament/Mini Scrapbook Album - Christmas 2011 *~

Hi Everyone!

Hope you're all having a wonderful week!  I had a bit more time to sit down and craft again so I'm very happy!  I really wanted to make a special ornament for 2011 to display and to also have as a keepsake for future years.  I created this ornament mini using the Graphic 45 Christmas Past paper collection and a Sizzix XL Bigz Album Circle die.  The front uses a Making Memories frame that I further embellished with a paper poinsettia (Glimmer Misted and added metallic paint) and Stickles.  I also cut out the numbers from the Graphic 45 Domestic Goddess Alphabet sheet, distressed the edges with my fingernail and with ink, and then added Stickles and Glossy Accents.  The other pages were embellished with images from the collection, pom pom trims, lace, baker's twine, buttons, and more Stickles.  I love how Stickles accent projects!

I'm entering this project in Let's Get Shabby Challenge #30 - A List...I have the following in my project:

holly/ivy/mistletoe/wreath (can use more than one but counts as one choice)
(it is an ornament :))

Thanks for stopping by and I wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas!

Warm *hugs* and Much aloha~!

~* Graphic 45 Christmas Past ~ Altered Box and Mini Album Inside for Christmas 2011 *~

Aloha Everyone!
Boy, it has been a long time since I've visited blogland (beside my little pop-ins here and there).  I'm sorry I haven't been able to drop by your blogs, but you guys have definitely been on my mind!  I finally had a chance to squeeze in some craft time yesterday and today!  I had sooo much fun :)!  I was having crafting withdrawals.  hehe!
I altered a Making Memories embellishment box with papers from the Graphic 45 Christmas Past Deluxe Edition paper stack.  I also used some trims, Prima gold leaves, paper poinsettias, and twine.  I cut out cute scenes from the collection, but kept the mini simple.  I plan to add 2x3 photos and lightly embellish ;p'.  This project is a keepsake for Christmas 2011.
Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful Holiday season!
*hugs* and Much aloha to you~!

Hi Everyone!

Wow, has it really been since August that I lasted posted?!?  I think I probably haven't crafted much since then as well ;p'.  Lots of big things happening in my life that have been keeping me quite busy.  I just wanted to say hi and thank you to all of you who have sent me sweet e-mails and messages saying that you were thinking of me.  I am so thankful to know such sweet, thoughtful, wonderful people like you!  I am really itching to sit down and craft again!  I hope to find some time in the near future.

If I don't have a chance to post before then, I want to wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas and a Happy Happy New Year (Kung Hee Fat Choy)!  May the Year of the Dragon bring you much joy and happiness and good health!

Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful Friday and weekend!
*hugs* and Much aloha~!
