I love being able to spread a little Christmas cheer today by announcing the winners of the two Scraptastic Club Giveaways! First, if you haven't taken the time to visit Scraptastic's site and blog, then you may have missed alot of great layouts and cards from our uber talented and inspirational Design Team Members. When you get a minute away from the holiday craziness, visit the Blog, Gallery, or Forum for a chat.

Now I am about to get back to the baking and watching football, but I just wanted to thank you guys for visiting my blog and wish you a wonderful week of holiday fun and a very happy 2014!

Now for the THREE lucky winners! My husband drew the numbers this time because my son is at work.

How fun!! For a few years now, I've been considering creating a mini album of my childhood photos with Santa Claus to give as a gift to my parents. This would give me lots of fun goodies to use and give me the push I need to get it done!
Your tags are just adorable, Susan. They would be great gift tags for your Christmas packages!

2nd-The winner of the December This Life Noted kit is #17........LISA

Love this sketch. Your layout looks fantastic with all the layering. My favorite treat is the Christmas candy I used to make with my mom and now make with my kids. It is a must every year. We make turtles, wreaths, porcupines, peanut butter bark, mmm...
And now for an extra surprise I am picking one more number from BOTH entries to win the "Home for the Holidays" Stamp Set! How cool is that!? I numbered the first drawing names #1 - 31, and added the second drawing names #32 - 54.

 And the winner of the stamp set is #8 .......Kimi!

December Sketchy Thursday and a giveaway!

Are you all deep in cookie baking and gift wrapping??? Does anyone have time to slip away and do a sketch for a chance to win a gift certificate to Scraptastic?! Well today is Sketchy Thursday on the Scraptastic Club blog so hop over there and get the info and inspiration from the talented girls on the DT. We all used the same kit to do this sketch and the layouts are so wonderfully different. You have until Jan 1st to enter your version of the sketch.

The sketch is Sketch #110 from SketchSavvy HERE

This is my take on the sketch. I have to say this one is pretty fun because you can add more layers and embellishments to suit your photo or photos. I used the "Home for the Holidays" kit, Add on Kit and Stamp Set from Scraptastic. If you would like a chance to win those kits, visit the blog post before this one and enter to win.

 I stamped the snowflakes and embossed with gold embossing powder, then used the gold Liquid Pearls in the center with some gold glitter. I decided the reindeer needed some decoration too so he has the embossed snowflakes as well.

 Thank you guys so much for visiting my blog. Want another Holiday surprise?!  Well Scraptastic is also letting me draw a winning name for the December This Life Noted Kit HERE! Now aren't you glad you scrolled all the way down here :) 

For a chance to win, tell me what your favorite holiday treat is before Midnight Sat December 21st. I will draw names for both giveaways on Sunday and announce them here on my blog.

Home for the Holidays Tags and Scraptastic Giveaway!

Happy Holidays Everyone! I have a special surprise for you guys. Scraptastic Club has generously decided to let some of our Design Team members host a giveaway on our blogs! Seriously it's going to be like Christmas for one lucky reader on my blog. You know the gorgeous "Home for the Holidays" kit and Add on Kit that I used for my last two layouts? I am going to be picking a winner and Scraptastic will send those two kits as the prize! So first let me show you the two kits that you have a chance of winning. Click HERE for more details of these kits.

I will tell you how you can win those two amazing kits, but first I have to share these little tags that I just threw together with my kit. I have created 4 layouts so far and there are still so many die cuts, stickers, and other goodies left. I can probably do a few more layouts. Since I am out of time before the holidays, I decided to make a few little tags that can go on a gift, card, or layout.

Ok now if you want a chance to win BOTH of those kits, follow my blog by clicking follow or follow by email - here on the right, AND tell me what you would do with these festive goodies. You have until midnight Saturday night December 21st. I will be announcing a winner on Sunday. 

Also be sure to check back here on Thursday for another Holiday Surprise!!!

Pinterest inspiration Monday

At Scraptastic's Blog on Mondays there is usually something inspired by Pinterest. Today is my blog post and I decided to make an inspiration board on Pinterest just for my December "Home for the Holidays" kit, add on kit, and stamp set.  It was alot of fun to gather inspiration there and then it really helped me out when I started my layouts. Check out my blog post HERE for the details and inspiration photos I used, but I will share the two layouts.
