Christmas projects 2010

So, I saw someone's project from a Stampin' Up group and I really loved it. I made one from memory and then went back to look at the original to get some ideas, and my project was almost totally different. Go figure. However, I liked the project so much that I made 4 more of them for gifts. I gave the first one away at a brunch with some former co-workers. I stopped working 19 yrs. ago when my first was born, but the "old co-workers" still get together on the second Sat. of Dec. for brekky. In the 23 yrs. that I've been going, I only missed one. It's truly a wonderful re-union. We always laugh and cry and share each others' grief and joys. It's a real treat. Anyway, my one co-worker was the recipient of my gift, which is always a random exchange. She loved it, and even passed around my matching card. I love blessing people! Anyway, here are the pics. Hope you enjoy. The paper is Stampin' Up regals.
This is a piece of grungeboard with a stamped piece of paper on top, finished with bling, of course! The tags were cut with my SCAL, the star is grungeboard, and the J was cut with my Christmas Cheer cartridge.
And, the tree, of which the file was so generously donated by Penny Duncan, is place over am image stamped with Versamark (clear), and then dusted with silver perfect pearls. The tree was also stamped with a swirly background stamp, and then embossed with silver powder.

Another SVG file by PD. She is amazing! Anyway, I love her poinsettias. My garland is adorned with them (pics will be posted soon). I sprayed these using the mini misters and the silver Perfect Pearls (mixed in water, of course). I'm so looking forward to giving all of these for Christmas.

And, last but not least, my companion, Jessie. She's a sweetie, and stays in the cold basement with me. Of course, her crate has several blankets for her. I wouldn't want her to be as cold as me.

On another note, HubbyDoc is taking me to Home Depot today to get a space heater for my Happy Place. I'm so excited!

Happy Crafting! Tami


  1. I love it!!! Very well done! Love your companion too! What a little sweetie.

  2. Great Job! Love your puppie too!

  3. Love it. Love how you used the perfect pearls with the background in just one corner. It adds just the right pizazz.

  4. Those are shared sentiments. My cats are of course right there in my face or on my lap or on the keyboard even trying to stay warm, while my toes are absoutely FREEZING! My scrap area has a new space heater too, now they all lay in front of it! LOL. Your doggie is sweet, he looks like my Mom's dog Buddy. Those files, the tree ad the poinsettia? Do you still have them or is there a way to download them still? They are very pretty. Thanks!


I love hearing what you have to say!
