10 Months to Christmas Blog Hop

Hi Crafters,
It's that time of the month again...the 25th! Which means a countdown to Christmas blog hop filled with Christmas inspiration! I have so much fun each month making two Christmas cards. If you have arrived from Kerry's blog then you are right on track. If you would like to start from the beginning then you want to head to Shari's blog.

This month our theme was to create two cards using the colours red/white and one other colour. For my first card I used mostly white and red and added just the smallest touch of silver with my bell. On my second card I went totally traditional and did red/white/green. The details for both of my cards are listed below them.

We also have a guest designer this month, Janis from - She is the last stop on the hop so be sure to check her out too!

Your next stop is Sally's blog. Have a wonderful hop and if you have created any Christmas cards lately leave me a link I would love some fabulous inspiration from you!
Happy Crafting!

Some Baby Smash Book Pages

Hi Crafters,
I have not been adding much to my Baby Smash book lately but I did do a few pages. I hope to get more done soon. Here is a look at the inside with the details under the photos.
Happy Crafting!
Of course there was more but do you really need to know all my secrets lol!
The image on this page was printed using a super old program called PrintMasterGold. It is from the 90's and so old that it will only read on our ten year old computer but it has some super cute clipart so I still love it!

I have been hoarding these mom stickers for years. It felt great to use them!

Yup, finally had to give up and get some meds after lossing 8 pounds in only a couple weeks.
It was nasty! Thank goodness that part is over. Although I still randomly get sick once a week or so...but that I can live with vs the 3-4 times daily before!
The 'morning sickness' was cut out of the 9 months cartridge. I am disappointed in the layers on this cartridge though. Had to do some fancy marker work to make this cut look good.

Bump Smash book

Hi crafters,
I have wanted to start a Smash book for some time but kept putting it off. Finally one day recently I took the plunge. Instead of buying one though I made my own with some papers that I have been hoarding forever ;) I just love how it turned out and have started filling it already. I will continue to show you pages as I complete them. I have decided to make this one only for things to do with my pregnancy and I think I will make another for my everyday life.
Happy Crafting!
