Shop til you drop!

Good Morning all! Happy Thursday! I have been away on holiday fun and vacation. Yesterday sadly I took my sister to the airport for her trip back home and even though I have 5 days left to my vacation I feel like it's just about over :-(

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. I sure did. My girls and I and having a great time just being together. They got a new Wii game called Just Dance 3 and we have been dancing and laughing way to hard!

Today is going to be the first day that I don't have anything "planned". It feels very weird. SO I figure I am going to take myself and sidekicks shopping!! We have gift cards burning holes in our pockets!!

Which brings me to my post today. I'm down to my final posts for Crafter's Companion Design team term. I will miss them but I can't wait to see what the new team will be bringing you. Today I bring you SWALK's Winter Cheer Collection, Shop til you drop. She is just the cutest! I got to play with the entire collection! They are all just adorable!

My gift bag is a perfect size for a champagne bottle for New Year's fun! Do you have any plans?

Crafter's Companion Christmas Blog Hop!

We are so excited to be giving away so many of Crafter's Companion's fabulous products, as well as sharing many Christmas project ideas. Make sure you head over to Crafter’s Companion USA over here, where the blog hop starts. And just in case you get lost...

Lisette - you are here!

We are giving away a prize on every blog, including the entire set of our new Spectrum Noir alcohol markers to one lucky winner who posts a comment on every blog. These markers are so new, that you will be receiving our first prototype of them. That's 72 markers! For my project today I used the reds and greens, they are just fabulous!

Spectrum Noir pens are alcohol ink based which have been designed specifically for crafters, but these affordable markers are also great for beginners, students and hobby artists alike. Each pen is double-ended, with a broad chisel nib for large area fills and a fine bullet tip for detailed work. Spectrum Noir marker pens will soon be available in 168 colour shades including a colourless blender. The colours blend seamlessly and can be mixed or layered over each other. These fast drying, alcohol based markers are acid-free and non-toxic, and the coloured ends of the pen allow for easy colour identification. (Please note: The design of the pen, color names and numbers may be different than the pens that will be released in January.) The image colour has been reproduced as accurately as possible.

I had such a great time creating a bookcard. I just had to do it again. Actually I have about two more I am also working on. They will be part of my giftcard giving this year. Today I used, Snow Fun. The sentiment comes from Hello Rudolph. Such a cute Humphrey's Christmas set, it's one of my many favorites from the holiday collection and Hello Rudolph is my sweet surprise for you! Just comment before Sunday, December 11th at midnight for your chance to win. All the winners' names will be posted at Crafter's Companion USA News blog on Tueday December 13th. (Must be a U.S. resident to win).

Your next stop is the talented Holley. Have fun hoppin'!

A Christmas Present

Wow it's December 1st! I can't believe how fast this year has past. My girls are growing up too fast! Anyway before I get all mushy about that. Today I bring you a gift. Well many of you already know this as a bookcard but after making one it's definately more than just a card and I love it!!

This week's challenge over at CRAFT is a Christmas Present and that is exactly what I intend to use this as. I have some gift cards that I will be giving out this Christmas and I think this is just a great way to give it to them. I used Winter Tilda from the Sweet Christmas Collection and Bo Bunny's Snowfall paper. It's gorgeous!

Inside I created a pocket for the card. I also make cookies for the holidays and plan to wrap them up and pop them in the book pages. I hope they like it! I would love to hear what you think.

Some other news to share...I think I mentioned that I got a new camera earlier this week. Well yesterday I got a tripod and played with my FIRST Video Tutorial!! I'm so excited. I have to figure out some video editing but I hope to bring you my first video real soon!!

Come on over to CRAFT Challenges and join us this week. I look forward to hearing from you!
