Christmas Tissue Box Cover

I made this Tissue Box Cover from a Tutorial at split cost stampers
and a pazzles file from Pam at YorkieMom's Creative Corner
I used Stampin up craft cardstock for the base and DCWV Homemade Christmas Stack
for the the layers, I used vintage photo to stamp the greeting and shade the edges, pointsettas on top were punched with a misc. flower punch and accented with my handcolored glass glitter.
I'm really happy with how this project turned out, It the perfect accent for my coffee table.

Guest Designer for Momo

I am so excited and honored to be asked to be a guest designer for Momo's blog. This week Tuesdays challenge is embossing which for me was a piece of cake as I emboss everything in one way or another. My first project is heat embossing and a card for Operation Write Home which is close to my heart as I have two children who are Marines (Semper Fi). The cardstock is American Crafts, the madalian background was done with Rangers Alcohol inks and then stamped with versamark and Hero Arts stamp then heat embossed with Stampendous black embossing powder. The sentament is from stampin ups Curly Cute set with versamark and white enbossing powder. Also used misc. ribbon from Micheals and gold decocolor paint marker by Marvy for stiching marks, the inside was stamped and embossed also.My second project is dry embossing, I dont remember the name of the paper collection but I do remember I loved it and bought alot of it. I use Martha Stewart border punch and dollar stamps and ribbon out of the dollar bin from Michaels. The embossing was done with an embossing folder from QuicKutz and my trusty Bigkick from Sizzix, cardstock American Crafts.
I hope you enjoy my projects and again thank you Momo for inviting me to take part in your challenge you are truly inspiring.

Card Call For Operation Write Home

Today I packaged up 59 cards for Operation Write Home, some were made by me and some were made by the wonderful ladies at the Timber Point school scrapbook fundraiser (thank you ladies). It really does my heart good to know I had some small part in making a soldiers time away from home and family a little easier, so today I ask that you give a soldier the chance to write home to their family on a lovley handmade card (no glitter please) mail me the cards and I will get them to where they need to be. You can leave me a comment here with your email and I will give you my address. The deadline for holidays cards is Oct 30 and I dont think we can make that but Valentines Day is comming and many husbands and wives are apart at this time, birthday cards are always good, themes like missing you, thinking of you, I love you and just general cards for notes are always good. Remember no glitter and the cards should be standard A2 size thats what works the best.
