PROJECT - DRESS UP FRAMELITS CONT'D

Here is a side view of the Dress Holder

Another view from the front.

They are fun and easy to make.  Thank you visiting my blog.

PROJECT - DRESS UP FRAMELITS

Project:  DRESS UP FRAMELITS 

I used the Stampin Up Dress Framelits Diecut around folded card stock 3 3/4" x 3 1/4".  These are great to make for special luncheon's, or craft fairs.

I added a couple packages of Crystal Light, but you could put a package of nail files or chap stick or even a favorite lipstick.  Then I added accessories to the dresses to make them special.
Cheers, Heather :)

MERRY MONDAY #143 (CAROLLERS MUSIC)

I missed the last challenge for Merry Monday by two hours, so thought I would get this one done and in earlier!  I love this challenge because I hope to have most of my Christmas cards completed and ready to go this year.   My deadline is always the last weekend of November for mailing and quite often I am not finished until mid-December. 
This challenge is all about Carollers/Music and I immediately thought of these little critters singing their hearts out with "Joy to the World."

Have a great day everyone and "Thank You" for visiting my blog.

MINI TREAT BAG'S

Treat Bags

I love, love this new Thinlits Die cut........ here are a couple of samples I created.


  They are so easy to make and if you have a lot of extra embellishments they can easily be added.   I used some older DSP "Sending Love" specialty paper.   I am going to be making these all weekend!

Bye Again,  Heather :)

This one was tough to make, I had such a problem with the flower stamp and ink, so I incorporated two different flower's to cover up my mistakes. 

Thank goodness it turned out ok. 

Take care, and have a great weekend.  Heather :)

CHRISTMAS CARDS FOR FAMILY AND FRIENDS

As promised I am posting some of my cards that I made for friends and family.  I make a lot of cards for our grandchildren as well.
 
I made this card for my sister and also my friends who come on our card making night.  Lots of Memory box die cuts and it takes a little bit of time to put together, but worth it.

This is the inside of the card.


These cards were so much fun to make for the Grandchildren. 





 
 
I made 39 cards in various styles, some are posted on previous posts. I am really looking forward to this Christmas, especially after joining the Merry Monday Card Challenges.  Imagine a card a week.   Should take some of the stress away.    I am also making the envelopes and the inside verse as well.   Enjoy!
 
Heather        Have a great day :)
