Well its the 14th! That means that the Papertrey Ink Release party is tonight!

So I have more projects to share using the NEWEST! My Timeless Templates © Home Made © and Time for Take Out ©

Sadly I’m still as sick as ever, so I need to brief. I have all I can do to keep my head up. I felt so bad since yesterday was Noah’s birthday and I wasn’t able to get out of bed for very long. Needless to say we did NOT make it to the movies. He did have a scavenger hunt for his gifts, and decided to spend his day playing with all his new stuff! I don’t think he even noticed my absence. We will save the movie for when we are ALL healthy. I don’t want to pass whatever I have on to ANYONE else.

OK now let’s get to the projects!

Home Made © Twas the Night Before Christmas


and all through the house


Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse


The stocking were hung, by the chimney with care (he sits nicely on the roof, or can come off!)


In hopes that Saint Nicholas soon would be there! (back of house)


That is my version of the ‘Twas Night Before Christmas!

I had some light garland from my PSF (Bonnie – I think! If I remember correctly OR it was my other PSF Barb!) and used to to decorate my Home Made © template. How perfect it was! I scored the boards on the house. Added some snow, and it was just about ready!

Then I KNEW I had to add Santa and his sleigh


My Santa is from Holiday Button Bits. I used my iTopp to create his brad belly! I love it!! His beard and hat are fun flocked too. I used my Cricut Expression to create my sleigh. I made mine 3D! I then wrapped a cotton ball with gold tissue paper for his sack. The list is one of the signature background basics, cut and rolled into a real life “naughty/nice list”.

Autumn Delights


Here is another set using the NEW! Time for Take Out © I hope this template isn’t get overshadowed by the AMAZING Home Made © template, because it is PURE fun!

I love creating with the standard and pretty petite sizes. Now you have lots of options for what you want to package up.

I’m in love with the Autumn Abundance  patterned paper. Its stunning all by itself!


All I did was add a paper punched flower to the top. Some leaves from Prima, and some jeweled ones too.


This is the fold in flap detail. Really pretty, with lots of possibilities!


Nothing is better than a box of chocolate! One of my FAVES!

Well that does it for me. I need to get back to bed and recover while Jay is home to care for the kids.
