Look at all these Christmas goodies that I received from Kris. She had all of this stuffed into that little pink bag. Thank you Kris for being so thoughtful! Please visit her blog to see more of her creations.
These are the goodies that I received from Beth. You can't see it that well in the picture, but she gave me a roll of HK ribbon! I can't wait to use it! And look at the HK that she created with the Sweet Treat cups. Thank you Beth!

This is the box of goodies that I received from Michelle. Look at how much goodies could fit into this little box! I just need to get me one of these dies. Just think of all the possibilities! Please check out Michelle's blog to see more of her creations!
This is a picture of the outside of the box. I know, I should have put this picture first... but I guess I'm just a little backwards. Anyways, thanks for stopping by...

I created this little box to hold some Build-A-Bear cards to give away as my handmade grab bag. Sorry, I was in such a rush (making this the night before) that I forgot to write down the dimensions. These Build-A-Bear dies are so much fun to create with. There are endless ways to create with them!

I made these cute little boxes to hold images that I wanted to pass on to some friends. I actually got this idea from Joni H. when she gave me a similar box for my birthday. Thanks Joni for the idea. And to those who received these, I hope you liked them.

I decided to make these sewing kits to give away for Christmas. I didn't care for the bag it originally came in so I created this box to hold the sewing kit in. I hope the recipients will like them and put them to good use.

This BRAK was given to me by my good friend Joni. She knew that I didn't own any copic markers so she decided to get me some as a belated birthday gift. I can proudly say that I am now addicted to them. Thanks Joni!
This is the thank you card that I made for Joni to thank her for my birthday goodies. I just had to use those markers...

I think this is the last of my punch art for Christmas. I hope you all enjoyed seeing them. I don't know if you can see it, but on the green small tag punch outs, used the 1/4" and 1/2" circles on the edges to form the leaves. Thanks for stopping by... have a great weekend!

This is the card I made for my December OCS partner... Sherri. I used the body of the build-a-bear and attached a 1 3/8" circle for the head. I used white embossing powder, versamark pen, real red ribbon, and rhinestone brads to decorate my gingerbread man. I also used the scallop edge punch, frame/oval scallop die, and petals-a-plenty textured impressions folder. Don't forget to visit Sherri's blog!

This was the blog candy I won last month from 1LuvnMama! Isn't the accordian tag really cute? It is kind of long so I had to lay it on the floor to take the picture. I have it sitting on my shelf (next to my gingerbread house) so that I can be reminded of all the wonderful people I've met through my blog. If you haven't checked out her blog yet, please do so because she has some great stuff to share with you! Thanks again 1LuvnMama!

This past weekend was our holiday get together at Jacque's for our Pacific Stampers Group. There were lots of laughs, good food, and fun games that night. This is the handmade grab bag that I got. It was made with the My Digital Studio!
These are the goodies that I received from my talented fellow stampers! Hope everyone had a great weekend. It was another busy weekend for me and I wanted to post these yesterday, but I was just too tired! Have a great week!

Here's another punch art to get you in the holiday mood. I haven't had time to create anything new with the punch art I've been posting, but thought I would share them with you anyways. Enjoy...

This is the favor that I made to give away to everyone at our Holiday Potluck for our SU group. I made a different version of the gingerbread man than the one I used on the gingerbread house. For this one I use the following punches: 1" circle, word window, and 1 1/4" circle. It was really quick to put him together. For the sides, I just cut 1" strips of cardstock and ran it through my crimper. I also used the Short & Sweet stamp set to stamp the sentiment... have a safe weekend everyone!

Being part of the Teacher Appreciation Committee over at my daughter's school, I volunteered to make tags again for the teacher's Christmas gifts. Actually, I volunteered to make all the tags for the entire school year. For the Christmas tags, I needed to make 170! Of course, I kept it simple since I was making so much... and didn't want to get bored. I had a little help from my little elves... oops, I mean daughters...hehehe! For these tags I used the scallop envelope die; punches: scallop circle, 1 3/8 circle, 1 1/4 circle; and the reindeer from the Sparkly & Bright set. I also added some glitter to Rudolph's nose. Thank you to all the teachers over at my daughter's school... you know who you are! We really appreciate all the hard work you put in to teaching our children!

This weekend went by so quickly since we were busy with my oldest daughter's party. I'm glad that's now over and can focus more on Christmas preparations... at least I hope. This punch art is pretty simple to replicate. Have fun with it...

This is a sample of something I made for my oldest daughter's birthday party. I bought some pencils and pens to go along with these. I also monogramed notebooks for their goodie bags too! I hope the girls will like them. A similar one was made at one of our stamp camps. I just used different ribbon and DSP to decorate these. I used the Thoroughly Modern DSP, Bermuda Bay polka-dot ribbons, and some decor elements vinyl sheets. I'm hoping that the rain will hold out for tonight since the party will be at the pool... keep your fingers crossed! Thanks Naoko for the great idea and for the jars!

This is another Christmas punch art... it's an ornament! Hope you like it... Sorry for the quick post, but I've got a busy day ahead of me today. I'm going to make a gingerbread house with my 6 year old daughter at her school. Wish me luck cause I've never made one before...

Here is a Christmas punch art for you to enjoy! The holidays are fast approaching... can you believe that it's already December? Just a few more weeks and then we'll be ringing in a new year! Hope you enjoy this punch art... I'll be posting more Christmas punch art throughout the month... so stay tuned!
note: I usually cut out santa's mustache freehand, but for those of you who would rather do less cutting, I simplified it by using a punch.
