I simply love the way this turned out and now I don't want to give it to anyone :) So on this gift bag I used the super fun Everybody Loves Christmas line. This is one of my favorites from Echo Park. The colors totally rock, love the super cute design of all the papers. There are so many things you can cut out and pop up on your projects, not to mention the cover sheet that comes in the paper kit. You can totally use every piece of it as well. I used part of it on the upper right of my project...that is where I cut the Merry Christmas from. Other supplies used on this project: Xyron adhesive, Ranger Stickles, Kreaxions Circle Cutter, & Tim Holtz die.
Thanks for stopping and I hope you have a fabulous day!

Well today i'm showing you one of DT projects for AWDML. I made a centerpiece for fall and liked the way it turned out so I made one for winter.
On this centerpiece I used BoBunny paper Midnight Frost, Kaiser Craft pearls which I placed in the center of the snowflakes. The base of the centerpiece is a 10" green floral wreath. The snowflakes were cut out using the cricut. This works perfectly because you can cut so many different sizes and makes it really easy to layer.

So I just love this fun line by Jillibean Soup, it's Christmas Chestnut Soup. The fun little sprouts that go with this line are a must have also. I added a little marker action around the outside of the sprout on the green and drew a line around the card, did a little inking on the paper, used my fabulous Kreaxions Circle Cutter to cut out some patterned paper in the middle of the circle, a Stampin' Up sentiment and my Xyron adhesive and I was done.
So I guess I can say one card down and a million more to go :)
Happy creating everyone,

Wow....thanks so much for this Linda, for nominating me for this blog award!
According to the rules, I am supposed to list 3 things that make me unique, and then nominate 5 other bloggers with attitude….
1. I freak out if i'm running low on adhesive! When I mean low....if I don't have at least 4 refills i'm freakin' thinking i'm going to run out!
2. I always have to sleep with socks on :)
3. I do everything left handed...even grabbing things out of the fridge has to be with my left hand.

Well I have the cover of my book done, so check it out!
I'm so excited with how the cover turned out and I can't wait to get the inside pages done to share with you. When it's someone's birthday that you know, do you ever wonder what is their birthstone, or what is their sign. I have created little tags in front of each month with that info on it. They look super cute just hanging in there. I also have tabs at the top of each month which you can kind of see in the picture. All of the fun tabs and tags were made using the cricut.
Well ladies this is super fun and easy to make. Why not start you new year out with a new occasions book!!
Supplies used: Teresa Collins: Freestyle paperline, chipboard cover, & chipboard elements, ribbon & fabulous fun blingage, and the super cool stamp set!! Can't forget the foam pop dots, and glossy accents.

For this project I used a foam green floral wreath that was 10" in size. I cut out a bunch of different leaves out of the fabulous Teresa Collins paper, then inked the edges with black soot distress ink. Next I grabbed my hot glue gun and started putting down the base leaves. After that I just filled in the spots I thought needed filled in. On some spots I used foam pop dots to add a little dimension to the project. The finishing touch was the candle in the middle which pulled the piece together.
This paper line your can grab at The Scrapbooking Studio.....also don't forget to reserve your spot now for this coming weekends classes with Teresa Collins in person!!!!!! It will be totally fun!!!

This was the first time I have made a tree out of paper. I simply loved the Wintertime line by Echo Park so that is the paper I used. The cone I grabbed at Hobby Lobby along with the wooden star on the top. The paper strips are cut to 1" x 3" and I just curled up the end of the paper before putting it on the cone. It's really simple....just start at the bottom and work your way up. I may take a while, but the outcome is totally worth it.

This is a layout I created for The Scrapbooking Studio in Moline, Il. This line is by Teresa Collins and it's called Freestyle. I simply love the colors in this line. I also used part of the strip at the bottom of the paper with the barcode on it, which is the 2 black & white strip of paper on the layout. By the way......OMG....Teresa Collins is coming there Nov5 & 6 . Sign up for her fabulous classes soon before they are all sold out! It will be a blast. I added some American Crafts thickers and October Afternoon letters to the layout, and a little bit of black bling, Xyron adhesive.
