latest layout

Well this layout is finally done. Not really 100%, but it will do for now. I have hung it up in my room until I decide what it needs, like a TITLE. Which I have thought of already, just not cut out the letters and glued them on. It will read on top somewhere (will have to move the matts down) Santa Clause Is Coming To Town. I think this title will fit perfectly for the layout.

I would like to Thank all the followers I have and all of my blogger friends. I hope this holiday season is filled with lots of love and good health. Hope you all have a very Merry Christmas.

Merry Christmas everyone

I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas. Hope it is spent with family and friends and with lots of LOVE and HEALTH. Hope you all receive what you have been wanting and more. But lets not forget what the true meaning of Christmas really is. It is not about receiving or giving, it is about the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ.

Great weekend

Hey everyone,
I had a great weekend. Not only did I do some shopping, take a picture with Santa (yes I did), finish 2 layouts, but I also had Paula from,  come over an give me and a friend of mine a class on how to use the Gypsy. I purchased it when HSN debuted it and have not used it except to Link my cartridges. We had such a blast. I had met Paula back in October at a crop for Breast Cancer and thought then she was a trip, but now I know she is a trip. We have laughed so hard, she was even crying. Anyhow, head on over to her bog and see all the amazing things she does daily. Her Christmas cards are amazing.

For this first layout I used the Jolly Holidays cartridge from walmart. I love everything about it. The paper used is from Joanns christmas stack from last year. Some of the paper is glittered and the others are glossy. Love them.

 This next layouts I used A Childs Year cartridge. I thought i would never use this cartridge and actually I have used it several times. I decided to make a boy and girls layout. Both layout are of Santa gicing the children a gift. I decided to stickle Santa's hat and put an actual pom-pom on it and glazed his boots.  I also added a bow to the girls hair and stickled her feet as if she had slippers on in PINK. The garland I made several of put them together and added a bow inbetween each one as if it as a garland, I added red beads to them for the berries. I stamped pines behind the Santa and kids. The stamp is from Hero arts. I purchased it at Joanns. I then stickled it as well as the leaves with green and cinnamon stickles.

 I hope you all enjoy it as much as much as I have making them.

Finally finished

Hello my blogger friends. Can you believe I have finally finished the Nativity scene? I can't believe it. This definitely took me alot more time than I anticipated. I thought I would have been done with it by now, but NO. There are alot and I mean alot of pieces. Anyone that knows and has done paper piecing will probably start it and never finish it. I did with the help and push of my husband. Thank God for him supporting me through this. I am telling you all I think it looks great but alot of hard work. Probably and I say probably because you should never say never, but I don't think I will be doing another one of this Nativity scene any time soon. I do have to say I have done other things alone the way. I did not only work on this. When I would get frustrated with this I would go to something else. I have started 2 other layouts, which I will be posting soon. Till then I leave you with a picture of all the pieces put together and stickled.

The Nativity scene has 3 angels, 3 shepards, 3 wise men, a camel, the manger, the stable, baby Jesus, Joseph and Mary .

Hoep you all enjoy it.
