Winter Wonderland

Good Monday morning!
Hope everyone is enjoying the last days of the year as we celebrate the New Year tomorrow.  I took my granddaughters to the Christmas exhibit at the Belliagio Hotel last week.  For this layout, I used the double loops punch around the page by Martha Stewart to create this beautiful border.
The title Winter Wonderland was cut with the Winter Frolics cartridge.  Also used some Recollections stickers and Tim Holtz ribbon flowers.

New Year 2013

Good morning friends!
In just a few days we will be celebrating a New Year--2013!
One of my favorite paper lines is Graphic 45 and its the Fashionista collection I used for this layout.

Tim Holtz is another of my favorites and on this page I used the Elegant Flourishes die and his adage tickets.  The pretty cream color flowers are by Jolee's boutique.  The corners of the photo mats are by Martha Stewart.
The title and 2013 were cut with the Create a Critter 2 and Plantin Schoolbook cartridges.
I recently purchased the Old Jalopy die by Tim Holtz and I love it.  Can you see the ladies aboard the car?
Lastly, the Weathered Clock die, also by Tim Holtz, is about to strike in the New Year.
Thank you for your visits to my blog.  I hope you will continue to stop by in the new year.

Hope everyone is enjoying their Christmas gifts and scrapbooking all those holiday pictures.

Mitten Mini Album

Hello friends and Happy Monday!
This past weekend I went to a crop at Michael's and this was the project I worked on. 

It is a chipboard mini album from Michael's dollar isle.  Santa's boot and the tree below are felt shapes

There are 5 chipboard pages which I decorated with the Merry Christmas stack by DCWV. 
I also used stickers by Recollections and Paper Bliss to decorate the album.
Could not resist adding a little gingerbread.
I decorated the right sides of the mini, but the left sides have space for those special Christmas photos.

Happy Friday!
Another week has gone by so quickly and I am ready for the weekend.  Here's another layout with the Memories Never Melt paper stack.

I used the Winter Frolics cartridge to cut the title, "Frosty."
The pretty heart doily was cut in half and can be used as a photo mat.

The snowman images on this paper are so cute.
I used Diamond stickles to add sparkle to the title.
Have a very blessed weekend.
