First Christmas post

Good morning! It's Monday, I'm still trying to be optimistic.

Today's project is a little different. Hubby said, You're making a what?

Bet you can't guess what it is.

It's a Christmas igloo with it's own little penguin family.  Did you guess right? lol

I found this in the sil online store and couldn't resist.

While I was making this, Gabe came in and asked me why none of these things I make ever end up in his room. So this became specially for him. The penguins are the 3 of us. The trees are supposed to hold cash rolled up for a gift. But I did not like the way they fit together so I glued them together for a decoration.

Take a look:




Now really, doesn't every home NEED a Christmas igloo?

Goodbye, fall!

Well, it's here. Saying so long to fall. So fast. I'm afraid if I stop for a second, it will fast forward to Christmas. I wish we had about 4 extra weeks between now and Christmas.

OK, here we go. This kit is called Thanksgiving Dinner. I saved it for last because of the big turkey. I'm using it for a centerpiece.

Lets look

Hump day!

Hi, everyone. Just 3 more days till Gabe is out of school for Thanksgiving. YEA!! Nine days in a row without the alarm clock. Hope to get the rest of my Christmas stuff made as well as cooking for Thanksgiving.

I usually put my tree up the day after.  I think I've got all the cards made that I'll need. I did multiples of a few designs this year.

Oh well, I'm not here to talk about Christmas. I've got to get through the final kits I used for this holiday.

These are the cuts I used from the SVGCuts kit, Acorn Autumn.


There was a gift bag and mini album in the kit that I didn't make. Just did not need them right now.

Happy Monday

I'm still trying to be optimistic. (post title - happy Monday) We'll see.

I can't believe Thanksgiving is in a little over a week. This year has flown. I feel like we just had Christmas.

So I figured I better post the rest of my Thanksgiving projects.




These are the cuts I made from the SVGCuts Leaves are Falling file.

Pick a pumpkin?

Hi, everyone.

I'm writing this at 7:48 pm, Thursday. I can hardly hold my eyes open. All this week I have been up before 4:30 am. Yesterday I was up at 3:30. I'm trying to stay awake. If this makes no sense, you know why.

This is more cards and 3d. It's a kit called Pick a Pumpkin.

Take a look:






I never realized it before but it seems I have a thing for pumpkins. I keep making them. And I love these cute crows.
Well thanks for stopping by.

Hugs and God bless. Stephanie

We're still in fall mode

Hi, everyone. I'm going to show you a new kit today.  This is the first time I have decorated so much for fall and Thanksgiving. I just couldn't seem to quit.  Now I'm cutting Christmas but I'm still in fall.

Anyway here's what I have to show you today.








This kit is SVGCuts Enchanted Autumn.

Happy Monday! (see I'm optimistic)

Hello. Hope everyone is ready for another Monday? The verdict is still out as far as I'm concerned. (not that I have any control) lol

I hope to make some Christmas cards today. Can't wait to do SVGCuts Christmas box card kit.

I may not have many cards made but I haven't been idle. I've made quite a few projects from about 5 kits. But I'm getting ahead of myself. We haven't finished with Thanksgiving yet.

Today I thought I'd show you the SVGCuts Autumn box card kit. I made all but the cake card. Just really didn't need a cake card.

Take a look:








Don't you just love box cards? These really go together well. I love Leo and Mary. My Cricut cartridge obsession has been replaced by SVGCuts kits.  YEA!!!

Happy Thursday.

Hello!

Hope you're all having a good week. Hubby came home a couple of days early from hunting so I'm not getting as much crafting done.

I've always been a SAHM so I'm used to being alone. Kids were in school and hubby was at work so I had time to myself after laundry and cooking were done. Now that he's retired I really enjoy
"my" time.  He enjoys "his" time, too. (we've been married for 44 1/2 years)

So today I'm going to show you the Caramel Apple Pie kit from SVGCuts.


 
This pie box is big enough for a large pie (11x11)


This is a crate and a card

This is the end of the crate


This is Gabe with his great grandmother, my mother-in-law. This was October, 2010. She died October 2012. They were crazy about each other. Gabriel has always had that effect on people.

 
I love this kit. I made every file in the kit. I made apples for the bushel basket but they weren't done when I took the photos.
 
Thanks for stopping by.
 
Hugs and God bless. Stephanie
