RCC December challenge: Anything Goes!

Hello! Today I am really excited to share with you a special gift that I put together for the Ribbon Carousel Challenge. Giving gift cards is sometimes the perfect gift for a certain person. My mother-in-law happens to be one of those people! So, I created this little gift card book for her!

I used the adorable WRMK North Pole collection for this book along with a perfect cut from the Silhouette store created by Jamie Cripps . It is perfect for presenting multiple gift cards in a pretty and organized way!

Using these papers made for an easy combination of color and prints. All of the papers coordinate very easily together. I loved how the book was put together too. Very easy to assemble! I added a little envelope to the back page with the receipts in it as well, just in case any of the cards weren't working properly!

Don't forget that the theme for the RCC December challenge is...Anything Goes! So, be sure to link up your creation >>here<< and show off your creativity!

Thank you for stopping by today! If you are celebrating today or tomorrow, I wish you a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful, blessed 2014!

Be Merry! Be Hairy!

The mustache craze doesn't seem to be going away just yet so I decided to play with it a bit and create this card for the holidays!

Interestingly enough, my inspiration came from a gift card that I spotted while standing in line at a local store. I was trying to think of a clever sentiment to use and this one kept sticking with me so I just decided to go with it! :) Simple and it makes me laugh a bit!

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you are Merry and only hairy if you choose to be!

Voilà...Magic Money Present!

I love this time of year since it gives me the chance to use some of the fun Silhouette cuts that I have in my collection! With some of my realtives, money is always a welcome gift but I'd rather not just stick it in a card. So I made this!

It looks like an ordinary gift until you pull up the top and see some of the good stuff! :)

Very simple, but a fun way to dress up a common holiday gift! Speaking of gifts, since we are expecting a snowstorm for tomorrow, I am SO excited to just be home with my family, wrap the rest of my gifts, frost some cookies and just soak in the Christmas spirit! Isn't it just the best when you can be home taking in your holiday decorations and just *being*? My favorite part of whole Winter Break! What's your favorite part of the holidays?

Thanks for stopping by today!

Merry Birthday!

We have a sweet niece who has a birthday very close to Christmas. One thing that I like to do is to use some of my holiday paper for traditional cards/layouts. It really is versatile when you think outside of the usual red & green of the season!

I used the We R Memory Keepers North Pole collection to create this card. The inside of the card matches the background. I just loved the polkadots and teal + red = happiness in my world! I love that color combo! I also used a bit of Glitter Ribbon along with Lawn Fawn Stamps and some nesting scalloped dies to create the shape of the card.

I got the idea of a shaped card and learned how to make it stand from Kristina Werner's Blog which I have been following all season. Love her designs!

So go ahead and and pull out your holiday papers, you might be surprised at what you are able to create! Thanks for stopping by!
