If you want to hear about how we spent our Christmas head over to the family blog at The Garland Fam. There's a giveaway hidden in one of the new posts. :) Good luck finding it!

Some of the presents I made

This is the To Do book that I made for my dad. For as long as I can remember, my dad has always carried a scrap of paper in his pocket that he keeps notes on. So I decided to make him a book.
Front (the pacifier is there for size)


The cover is: 3.75x2.5 and the pages are 3.5x2.25
I used Brushed Corduroy on the masks.
The masks are mini compass and Timeworks.

I made three of these 6x6 calendars. One for each of my grandmas and my grandpa.

Month Stamps - Technique Tuesday
Blank Calendars - Boxer Scrapbooks
Papers - DCWV Christmas Combo/The Stack III/Through the Year (not the right name but you get the idea), and Bazzill
EK Success bat punch

Taking a Pause

I've taken an impromptu break from blogging. We're enjoying the holidays and being with family. Another reason is I have a BUNCH of crafts/presents to finish and that's taken all of my extra time. Be prepared to be bombarded with posts after Christmas (or when I give people their gifts). I don't want to spoil any surprises by posting early. :)

Merry Christmas!!!!

Jumbo Cards

My mom's friend asked me to make three cards for the owners of the clinic she works for. But she had requirements. They needed to be 8.5x11 in size, not 'cutesy', and Christian-inspired.

I glued the top inch of two sheets of cardstock together and scored to make the cards as big as possible.

It took a little bit to find ideas that weren't cutesy but I loved how they turned out.
