Holiday Wishes Blog Hop Winner

Thanks to everyone who joined us on the Holiday Wishes Blog hop.  The winner of the Sans Serif Cartridge is.... Pookie and she said

Pookie said...
Oh no! I know the feeling my youngest (4) loves to "craft" and she wants to be just like mama! While I am flattered, its not always conducive for me to get things done; as soon as she knows I am in the room she appears..Also she will go in there and cut things with my scissors and she runs my adhesive roller all over the place and its a bear to clean that sticky stuff up.
With that being said your project is very nice!
I have emailed you Pookie!  Congratulations! 
Now, one more thing I have to say, I will probably be done posting until after Christmas.  There is just too much going on here for me to keep up with all of it!  I hope you all have a very MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR!

We have a long line up of great projects so I am glad you are here.  First, I must apologize, I had a great project lined up and started, and then my dear sweet daughter decided to help out and poured glue all over it...SO... long story short, my awesome project is now a card.  Not so aweome because I am not a card maker, but time was short and I needed some cards! LOL.

The snowflake paper is from The Paper Studio.  The cuts are from the Christmas Cheer  and Winter Frolic.  I used a cuttlebug folder on the snow globe and stickles to decorate the tree and make it look "snowy." 

So that is it for me, Sorry not the greatest of projects, but I am happy with the way it turned out.

Ok, for blog candy I have the Sans Serif Solutions Cartridge.  All you have to do is leave a comment to be entered to win.  You don't even have to be a follower, but you are always welcome to follow!

Ok, so as I mentioned yesterday, it has been a long crazy week, filled with sick kids and holiday hustle and bustle already!  Well, gift giving time is creeping up on me, and I had planned to have this project done a long time ago...but it is 1:00 a.m and I am just finally done! 

These will be the gifts for my children's teachers this year.  I have been seeing all the beautiful glitter ornaments and decided I would give it a shot.  Let me tell you, they are so super easy, but look beautiful.  I can't wait to see some on the tree with all the lights.

In case you don't know about this technique, I'll give the short story on it. 

You need:
Clear glass ornaments
Mop and glo (I used the dollar general brand and it worked fine)
Ultra fine glitter

First remove the topper of the ornament and pour some floor polish into the bulb, and swirl it around. Next drain off any excess.  I left mine upside down for about five minutes.  Then pour the glitter into the ornament.  (It takes a lot) Swirl or shake the ornament until it is covered in glitter, the dump out the excess.  Easy Peasy!!!!  Then you can decorate the outside, or leave them plain!  I chose to add ribbon around the ornament and then added a monogrammed  oval for the teachers.  I used A Child's year for the cuts.

Here are the 3I have finished.

Now, these need to be wrapped too, and what better way than a box fromtags, bags, boxes and more?  Cut at 11.35 inches in height they are perfect for your ornament.

I cut out my boxes, added a tag from Very Merry Tags, the sentiment from 3 Birds, ribbon handle and Viola!!!  Gifts are done!  Now to finish the other 12 or so I need to finish! LOL

If you were here yesterday you know that I do have candy for the hop...but I couldn't tell you what it was because...well... I didn't have it yet! (I really like to wait until the last minute!)  Well...how about this, the winner will get to chose either Speaking of Fall or Sans Serif and which ever the winner doesn't chose will be up for blog candy next weekend in another hop I am in. 

How do you win? Well if you left a comment yesterday you are already entered once.  If you leave another you will be entered twice.  I will draw on Tuesday.

Ok, I've rambled enough, I need to go to bed and you all need to hop on! 
Your next stop is Paper Frolic

Merry Christmas everyone!

Cricut Circle Christmas Blog Hop Day 1

Welcome to my blog and the Cricut Christmas Blog Hop. This is a two day hop with lots of talent! I can't wait to see what everyone has created.

If you came from Looney Bug Designs you are in the right place. If you just happened by my blog then please join us from the beginning at Josy's Craft Corner. After you have visited here your next stop will be Paper Frolic.

Ok, on with the projects. Today is a pretty simple project, but I love the way it has turned out and it has been so helpful already!

I chose to make a "Santa's Workshop" notebook to help me stay organized with gift buying and lists. I always get confused between what aunts, uncles and grandparents have told me they have gotten the kids and this way I can keep track and take it with me when I go shopping.

I got this composition book at Michael's on clearance for less than $1.00.  I loved the pink binding, and knew I could do something girly with it.  The papers are from Paper Studio at Hobby Lobby.  I used embossing powder to make the roof look snowy.  I used the Circut Christmas Cheer and Winter Frolic cartridges. I used my I rock to decorate the tree and put a couple of layers of Hod podge over everything.

Ok, what do all good hops have...blog candy right?  Well this stop is no different...except, I haven't picked it out yet.  I am hoping to get to go shopping today to find something!   This week has been full of craziness and sick kids and time hs nt been on my side! BUT...if you are in the mood for a surprise, just leave a comment on this post.  You can enter agan tomorrow by coming back and leaving another comment.  You don't have to be a follower, but I would love it if you were...I  love new followers and comments.

Ok, now it is time to hop on!  Stop by Paper Frolic next.  Thanks for joining us and Happy Hollidays!
