Are you ready? Christmas is here before you know it. I have all my shopping done and most of the wrapping of the gifts. I love to tie fancy bows, but no bows this year. I had a "mishap" with the hot glue gun and I decided the pain wasn't worth the bows. A big burn on the side of my index finger on my right hand took care of the bow decision for me.
It is going to be busy here on the blog the next couple of days. I have an altered project appearing on Sketch Support on Monday and my Little Yellow Bicycling Cycling Team post goes up on Tuesday on their blog and here. And after that, I don't think I will get a chance to update until after Christmas!
Scrappy time has come to a basic HALT with Higgins needing to either be attached to a leash with us or crate rest. We hate to have him sit in the crate if we are home, especially after a work day. But we have to hang on to the leash or the little stinker will get away and try to do something he isn't supposed to.
But, I got some Basically Bare goodies in the mail and had a chance to play with them. A fun mix of chipboard and felt. Some packages have acrylic and cardboard mixed in too! I am in LOVE with this package of them!
And quite truthfully, I am "sick" of Christmas paper right now! So, I dug out some fun bright papers to play with from Pebbles and came up with this layout!
Supplies: Pattern Paper-Pebbles (Fresh Goods); Stickers-Pebbles (Fresh Goods); Chipboard/Acrylic Items-Basically Bare (Buttons, Heart, Locket face, Cloud); Twine- The Twinery Baker's Twine (Buttercup/Denim); Paint Marker-Elmer's; Adhesive-Scotch ATG, Fabri-Tac and Scrapbook Adhesives
Tools: Martha Stewart Border Punch; Silhouette Cameo with file
A close up of that fun cardboard heart. I covered with pattern paper and then curled and roughed up the edges.
And since I can hardly wait, I am just going to give you a sneak of one of my Little Yellow Bicycling projects that I did! I am in totally LOVE LOVE LOVE with the Winter Twig collection!
Have a wonderful Monday and I hope you get all your shopping done, gifts wrapped and a little time to relaxed before the full holiday swing kicks in!
