More Christmas Cheer!!!!

I finally got over my aversion to Holiday layouts. It is really strange but I have always struggled with holiday and birthday layouts. But on my last shopping trip with one of my besties at the local Archiver's, I found a multitude of Christmas lovelies. With that purchase, I have been inspired to create.

Christmas Memories

I so love to look back on past Christmas' while my children were so much younger. Being that I didn't start scrapping until my oldest son was 14, I had a lot of catching up to do. I came across some pictures of my boys....Landon was 4 in one layout that I did yesterday and Caleb was a newborn ing the other.Wow, you blink and those moments are gone. I guess that is why scrapbooking is such a special gift that I give to myself so that we can all look back and remember all the special times we have shared as a family. Okay....enough of me blubbering on about the past. I am in a nostalgic state of mind.

Cards, Cards, Cards

Hi Folks!!!! Hope all of you are enjoying your restful Sunday. I have been working on a few cards to show you. As you know I am a new demonstrator with Stampin'Up. When I say "new" I mean very "new". Stamping has not been my forte' but I am determined to change that. Since receiving my demonstrator kit, I buckled down and started stamping with a set that is fantastic for "All Occasions". If you happen to see something you like, please feel free to check out my website on your left to view all the products that Stampin'Up has to offer.

 For all of these cards I used the stamp set "Fun and Fast Notes". Like I said they are multiple stamps that can be used for various occasions. When I stamped the little porcupine I decided that he needed a little extra something, so I got out my smooch and went back over his little bristles to add some glimmer.
 This is simple "Thank You" card but with a fall-like theme. I also used the "Whisper White" and "Pumpkin Pie" smooth cardstock made by Stampin'Up. By the way, if you have never seen their stamp pads I think you would be very impressed. All the colors coordinate with the cardstock and their markers as well.

 My last card is a sweet little birthday card. I used a little bit of stickles to add some dimension to the frosting. On this stamp I used my new copic markers in various shades of yellow and a Stampin'Up marker-Pacific Blue.

I hope you have enjoyed my latest attempts at stamping and card making. I have a lot more to learn but I am looking forward to the journey. And as I learn I promise to share with all of you or you may have something to teach me!!!!!

Have a wonderful Day!!!!!!
