Joyful!!

Color Me Daisy's December kit is JOYFUL and so much fun to play with! Lots of goodies from My Mind's Eye, October Afternoon, Making Memories, Imaginisce, and so much more!! Also included are some beautiful glittery chipboard and a Hambly snowflake overlay. The possibilities are endless!

As you may not believe, I have relatively few Christmas photos to scrap because I am all caught up on last year's Christmas. But I wanted to highlight this photo, because I love it! Not the best photo (Kevin is looking weird and the lighting was bad) but I still love it!

I also saw these cute treat bags on Jennifer McGuire's blog and thought they would be perfect for co-workers, neighbors, anybody this holiday season you want to give a treat to.


And you can't give a cute little treat bag without a cute little card. These are 3x3 and I used a diecut from the diecut sheet and the snowman stamp from our Christmas card kit.

I've been wanting to make a cookie sheet advent calendar now for some time. This year i've seen so many cute ones and thought this was the perfect kit for it! I spray painted a used cookie sheet white and then decorated it. I used Aleen's tacky glue to adhere the paper to the cookie sheet and it seemed to work just fine. The silver chipboard is from the kit, the other chipboard is all leftovers from my stash. I also scrounged up a bunch of leftover numbers from Thicker packs. I had so much fun making this! It was an early Christmas gift for my sister this year.




Thanks for checking out my projects! Color Me Daisy also has an ornament kit and mini project kit which includes an accordian album with some fun holiday embellishments! Go check it out!!
