Happy New Year!

Well it is already a new year! I can't believe it I just don't know where this year has gone and now we are looking forward to a new year! 

I thought I would take a look back at my favorite projects of the year! 

2011 brought beautiful new stamps to us! 
Fathers Day cards!
We welcomed a new baby!
We used new tools to create awesome projects!
We learned punches have more than one use!
and we learned you can make more than just cards with stampin up!

Its been a great year! Looking forward to even more crafting in 2012!

Stocking Punch

Just announced this week, stampin up will not continue to make the stocking builder punch and it will not be carried over into the new catalog! While this is so sad it is also exciting to think of the great new products that are in the works. You have until January 3rd to puchase the stocking builder punch but they are trying to get rid of their stock so once they are gone, they are gone.
This punch goes great with this stamp set from the holiday mini
Both of these can be purchased on my website until January 3rd
This punch also goes with the gift givers set from the holiday mini
I hope you have a great christmas!

{Day 9} Twelve Days of Gifts

Today I went for something pretty clever, with a little baby around the house we have a ton of these formula cans and I WISH I had, had this brilliant idea earlier because everyone would have gotten these! You could also do it with the oatmeal cans....
I used the simply scrappin kit from the holiday mini to create this cute cookie tin! 
Here is a picture of the top
If you have cans like this laying around or use formula don't throw them out! 
So now that we are 5 days from Christmas I thought I would share this sweet picture with you of my babies with santa...

Advent Calendar

I wanted to create an advent calendar for addie, a countdown to christmas that you could open each day and reveal a special bible lesson and project. I used a cookie sheet and the round stampin up containers that are used for brads and other embellishments. I placed magnets on the back so they would attach to the cookie sheet. 

This is a sample of the inside the others include bible lessons. I have also see the covers of the embellishments done the same way and given as a treat to customers. 

I used the Christmas bingo bits to create this calendar.
There is one for all 24 days!
