My cousin had twins earlier this year, two adorable little girls. These babies were miracle babies because she wasn't supposed to be able to have anymore babies. God blessed them with Alliana and Gylliana. I made them these adorable ornaments! Big brother is getting one too; it;s just not finished yet.

Boy! I have been a busy crafter today finishing up Christmas gifts for my nephews and great niece. I made them each a gloss block night light. I am pretty darn proud of how they turned out.

I spent a good part of my day today making this year's Christmas cards. I saw Robyn, from My Pink Stamper, use pink and light green on her Christmas card and loved it!!! LOVED IT! Found some pretty paper at Archivers (didn't document the name of the paper.). Perfect for what I wanted to do. Landed on a design and started the production line. After about 20 cards, I needed a change so I tried a few different layouts/designs Here are the results. Let me know what you think by leaving a comment. Thanks for stopping by.
This was the first card and most were made using this design. This was cut using the Stretch Your Imagination cartridge.
I skipped the outline cut and used my gel pen to make the lines and dots..
Used the Swirl emboss folder and Creative Memories white chalk ink to make the swirls pop.
This was my first design using the Cricut Creative Memories Cheerful Seasons cartridge. The holly had too many layers for so many cards so I decided to go with the holly from the Stretch Your Imagination cartridge.
Now, I really liked this one, alot! But, I was almost done with the my cards so this was just for fun! Next year, I think. This was cut from the Christmas cartridge. I got this as a free download on my Gypsy.
I wanted something simple so I cut the scalloped circle using the Celebrations cartridge. I used the Gypsy to delete the hole from the top of the tag, embossed, chalked and used my gel pen to add the dots.
. Very simple.
Same design but different layout.
This was the simplest of them all and I really like it. Sometimes simple is better.
I embossed the card front with the Swirls folder.
I used the Cuttlebug Swirls folder, Emboss Winter Jelly folders, Creative Memories Chalk Ink (white), Stickles, ribbon from Joann's and cardstock and matching envelopes are from a local paper supply store. The sentiment was printed using my printer.
