Christmas Goodies!

Hey Everybody!!  I can't believe I made it back to my blog!  It had been so long since I had logged on that I couldn't find it!  But TaDa!!  I found it. lol.  
I can't believe the Christmas Season is here again already!  I have been hard at work finishing up some projects! Today I have a curly paper wreathe that Shellyb140 (on youtube) showed how to make.  Hers are so stinking cute I had to try on. I will probably make a few more! But here is mine. I used some old Stampin Up paper that came in a scrapbook kit.  I also used some odds and ends that I had stashed away in my Christmas decorations.They are so easy to make and they don't take long at all. This was done in one evening. You just cut 1/2" strips from 12x12" patterned paper, curl them like you would curling ribbon and use stick pins with the tiny heads on them to poke through the paper and into the hard green styrofoam wreath.  Not the white wreathes that crumble when you touch them, but you want to use the green hard ones (in the same aisle at the craft store). Really there is no rhyme or reason to this, I just poke away! And I love how it turned out. I have it hanging to the left of my dining room window. I have to make another for the right side lol!!  Anyway thanks for stopping by. If you have any questions, please ask away!!  Take care!!! Hugs, Rachel

Hello Friend...

Wow! I can't believe how long it's been since I have posted!!  I tried to post yesterday and for some reason I couldn't log on and see my dashboard!  So I posted pics to my facebook page instead.  I thought that my blog was deactivated or something!  Anyway, I have several cards to share but I am only going to post one a day so it looks like I make cards everyday!  LOL  But in all actuality, I made them all in one weekend!  ;)  I have been watching and following Kristina Werner's blog forever now and she has been the inspiration for all of my cards lately.  I love her designs; the simplicity of them and how easy it is to finish a card!  Here is the design I fell in love with.  The cardstock is from Stampin' Up, as well as the ribbon.  I also used Versamark ink and Martha Stewart Crafts embossing powder.  The scallops are made from 3/4" circles.  The corner rounder I used is the Corner Chomper from We R Memory Keepers.  Thanks for stopping by; I know it's been awhile!  :)
