Festival Of Tree’s-WOW!

Dec 7, 2007 Author: mytime | Filed under: Uncategorized

Several  weeks ago you may remember that I made an ornament to send to Paper Crafts for the Festival of Tree’s!

If you don’t, well here is the ornament 😀


Proceeds were to benefit the families of sick children, who may have a hard time financing the cost for their child’s treatments/care.

I can obviously relate, and was MORE than willing to help out.

Brandy sent me a photo of the decorated tree!! I copy/pasted the email with it. I found MY ornament 😀 I took the liberty of circling it. If you wonder HOW I know it was mine-the photo I was sent was HUGE! So I could see all the details!

It came out gorgeous! I hope you enjoy the view. Someone was very blessed to get it, as are the children who benefit from this event.

Happy Holidays!



Merry Christmas Lauren,

I just want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for your generous donation to our Festival of Trees project.  The Paper Crafts tree was a wild success and was auctioned off for a significant amount of money.  In turn, all of that money went directly to help the patients at Primary Children’s Medical Center.  Our tree was in such high demand that several people participated in a bidding war in order to purchase it.  The woman who won the bidding war and took home the tree is an avid scrapbooker and was thrilled to be receiving such a vast supply of products and such a beautiful array of paper-crafted items.

This project could have never been possible if it weren’t for you. As I mentioned last month, I wanted to send you a photo of the tree in all its glory; this picture is attached. For additional information about the Festival of Trees and for photos of the tree-decorating process please check out the Paper Crafts blog at  

Thank you again and happy holidays,

Brandy Jesperson and the rest of the Paper Crafts team

Green Grass Sale!

Green Grass Stamps ran some ads over on SCS this week! Did you notice? She has some great sets. Especially if you are a sentiment and alphabet lover 😀

Well, she has a SUPAH cute NEW! set called THANK YOU, that is on Sale lookie ——-HERE

It only runs till the end of today.

Just in case you need some ideas of WHAT to add to your cart (HE!HE!HE!)

cupcake-wishes-gg.jpg Cupcake wishes

The cupcakes are from her Holy Tomoli set (one of my faves of hers), and the sentiment was from a retired set of hers (insert sad face). I colored with Copics and added some glitter! YUMMY!

I used some Junkitz paper to get inspired for this one! Do you see the acetate tag on the side? Cute isn’t it??? Its a great way to add a sentiment to what appears to be a “busy” card. I love that it just sorta POPS-Hey you-Birthday Wishes! LOL!

This idea for the cupcakes is GREAT for those TINY images that seem to never get used in our sets. TRY it out. Put those little images to use. NO-3 X 3 cards-that’s cheating 😀

Here are some more ways to use those TINY images on a LARGE card, yet make them the FOCUS!!!

Now would you EVER think this tiny butterfly would POP on a large card? But, it does.

I used my rectangle nestabilities for the embossed border on the flower layer-a simple, subtle touch of elegance!

Butterfly is from Card Greetings II. The sentiment is also retired, but with this NEW set (which I am patiently awaiting) its can be substituted!

The paper is my lovely Martha Stewart. Patterned paper is by K&Co. I use it ALOT!

Now for yet another idea

mytime-gg-t-is-for-thanks.jpg T is for thanks

This is yet another way to pair up those alpha’s and monograms!

By surrounding it with a patterned layer, and placing it in a circle it really draws your attention. This is similar to a card I posted using Paper Trey. Sweet Baby Jane alpha is the T, the thanks was retired. The border stamp is from Sweet Baby Jane.

OK Thats all I got for now cause Im finishing my Christmas shopping today!! Just need those final Gift certificates, and to MAIL my Christmas cards!

Till tomorrow
